Smashbox Rapture Lip Gloss Set Review & Swatches

Oh how I love thee lipgloss let me count the ways!

You come in a wide variety of colors and flavors! You make my lips shiny, glossy, and sometimes even sparkly! You make my lips pop with life and make my teeth look white and bright!

Ahhh gloss.....tis the essence of a beauty junkies life!

That's why it's always so exciting when the Holidays roll around and gloss sets start popping up! Variety is the spice of life after all and what better way to get a slew of variety than picking up a gloss gift set from your favorite cosmetic brand!

The Muse was particularly excited about the yummie hues included in the Smashbox Rapture Lip Gloss Set! The set includes six shades of popping lipgloss for the upcoming Holiday season for $29 USD! That's $4.80 USD per a gloss! Sweet deal right? Plus the shades are some of the best I've come across in the world of glossy gift sets!

The kit includes three of Smashbox's best selling shades plus three holiday exclusive shades! Shades included are as follows:

Radiant (Shimmering Deep Rose)
Illume (Shimmering Beige Gold)
Candid (Shimmering Deep Coral Peach)
Ravishing (Bronze Brown with flecks of Gold)
Stunning (Rosy Fuschia)
Lovely (Pale Peachy Coral)

Although the glosses are super emoilent I do love the fact that are pigmented enough to wear without staining my lips prior. The finish has a slightly hint of shimmer but nothing to dramatic that you're looking like a disco ball.

Sportin' Smashbox Lipgloss in Lovely

Sportin' Smashbox Lipgloss in Radiant

Sportin' Smashbox Lipgloss in Ravishing

Sportin' Smashbox Lipgloss in Candid

All in all the price is quite nice and the selection of colors are amazing which is pretty much what you drew me to the set to begin with. The shades all have a certain coolness about them but can easily be warmed up with a nice blush!

Smashbox Rapture Lipgloss Gift set is available now from plus you get Free Shipping on any order and samples! Do check out the rest of the Smashbox Rapture Holiday Collection as the Muse is loving it all!
