Holiday Beauty Gift Guide- Smashbox Wish Collection

Leave it to Smashbox to knock it out of the park with their amazing holiday collection and gift sets. The WISH collection is huge, beautiful, and beneficial to a great cause. I dare you not to fall in love with the offerings.

Wish for the Perfect Pout

I am not kidding when I say that Smashbox makes a great gloss. Smooth, sheerly tinted, vanilla scented, and completely non-tacky, these glosses are solid. With four miniatures (pictured above with an extra joining the party) and 2 full-sized glosses, you almost have a gloss a day for the week. Thats a lot of fun lip looks, by the way.

Top to Bottom: Aura, Expose (which isn't part of the kit but wanted in on the group picture), Tease, Candy, Radiant


Wish for the Perfect Pencils

These pencils are beyond amazing. Imagine a creamier version of Urban Decay 24/7 pencils that is just as long lasting, and just as richly pigmented. These pencils glide like buttah baby, and last all the live long day. They come in 5 glossy, metallic shades ranging from silver to dark teal. I am seriously down on my knees, praying that Smashbox makes these babies permanent.

Wish for the Stars


The Wish for the Stars Kit seen above (missing is the Illume gloss it comes with)  is perfect for travel, and comes with a mini Dusk Fusion Soft Lights, a mini Illume Lipgloss, and a mini Lash DNA mascara in black. I am a huge fan of all 3 items, and love that they are grouped together at a super affordable $20. These miniatures are as functional as they are adorable, and I love Keep in mind that they are miniature versions of the full size, making popping them into your bag a snap.

WISH is an amazing collection, with an equally amazing cause behind it. With every WISH purchase, $1 will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network, a non-profit that grants the wish of life to millions of sick or injured kids by providing care and investing in life-saving research. It is heartwarming to know that purchasing a piece of this collection will not only make the recipient happy, but will do good for others in the world. Smashbox is hitting all the right spots with this collection, and I highly recommend checking it out for yourself. You can find all of these items at Sephora, or online at
