Holidaze: Be Legendary Lipstick & Lip Mattifier Set

It is one of my favorite times of year — the season of GIFT SETS! Despite the cold dreary weather I always look forward to scoring some great products that I might otherwise not give a second thought, at a great price. It’s like brands are creating personalized gifts just for me!

This year my Black Friday score was Smashbox’s Holidaze: Be Legendary Lipstick & Lip Mattifier set, a $137 value at a steal of $36 (Canadian).

According to Me

This is an amazing deal and the packaging is super fun and festive! I might pick up a few more sets for the beauty lovers on my holiday shopping list. The colors are great and good for almost any complexion, and with the insta-matte lipstick transformer you are really getting 10 lipsticks out of the set.

The colours are perfect for going from day to night during the holiday season ranging from light pink to a rich nude brown to a deeper red/pink/burgundy.  They apply rich in color with a nice dewy cream finish. They are not drying to the lips which is perfect for the cold dry winters.

I haven’t used a mattifier before so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. All you need to do is apply a little onto your finger and rub over your lips (with the lipstick already applied) to transform the creamy glossy lipstick into a matte color. It is kind of like magic before your eyes! If you are looking for a true matte lipstick then I don’t think you can achieve that with the insta-matte lipstick transformer – but for toning down the creany shine this is perfect.

They last as long as typical lipsticks so make sure you toss them in your purse to apply throughout the day. They also smudge a bit so you definitely need to use a liner. Overall I really enjoy these lipsticks and love that I can get 2 looks out of each one with the mattifier!
