Stealing the Spotlight: Smashbox Lipgloss Set

Nothing makes me happier than finding new lipstick and gloss. So you can imagine my excitement when I spotted a lipgloss set from Smashbox with five new-to-me shades. And then saw that they were only $20 (valued at $80). How fast can you say “sold”?!

Since it’s fall, I’m all about soft pinks, deep plums, and reds, which were generously represented in this collection. I have plenty of lipsticks to carry me through until spring (that’s a hint to myself that I should refrain from buying any more). But I tend to shy away from lipgloss due to the tacky nature and the frequent need to reapply. However, when it’s from Smashbox I can overlook these shortcomings.

While these aren’t the full-sized versions, the tubes offer enough product to get you started. The set contains the following shades: Orchid, Disco Rose, Superstar, Pout, Coraline. I can already tell you that two of the colors have received a lot of wear. Any guesses which ones they were? If you said Orchid and Disco Rose, you’d be correct.

All of the shades go on fairly sheer, so be prepared to apply a double coat for maximum coverage. You could even wear the gloss over a complementary lipstick shade to add some sheen to your pout.

Did I mention that this set would make a great gift for the holidays?

Are you a lipstick or lipgloss lover?

    1. Thanks, Rachael! I definitely prefer lipstick to gloss, but it’s nice to try something different. You can even pair these glosses with a lipstick for some added sheen. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and thanks for visiting Living in Steil!

    1. I went through the same phases as you did, Kelly! Now I have lipsticks in every shade and can’t leave home without one in my bag. But it’s been fun to play with gloss and wear them with my lipstick for some added sheen. I’m glad you enjoyed the post!
