The most wonderful time of the year, they're not kidding!

There are many things I love about the holiday season - cookies, eggnog, spiked eggnog - but really what I love most are all the wonderful sets and palettes that all of the cosmetic companies put out.  My friends at Smashbox have done themselves proud again this year with their Holiday 2009 WISH sets and I got a look for myself at Shoppers Drug Mart this past weekend.  My fave:  This lipgloss set, and at $33 a total steal!  A regular gloss by itself is normally $22 and this set gives you 2 full sized and 4 smaller glosses, ranging in colour from beigy pink to berry, fab!

You probably know by now that anything pink is good with me and this travel brush set is adorable!  A little pricier at $56, but Smashbox makes such good quality (and expensive) brushes that this is still a good deal.  I don't know if I will be picking this up or not, I don't travel and at home I prefer a long handle on my brushes, but don't think I'm not tempted simply for the colour!  If you do travel, this would be a great set for you or of course, a nice present for the pink-addict in your life.
Lastly, the eye pencil set (in silver, peacock, black, purple and bronze).  I find it a treat when Smashbox does pencils as they aren't part of their normal line.  The set they had with the spring Muse Artist line were great, so I have high hopes for these guys.  And at $36, you can't beat the price! 
I have seen these, as well as other holiday sets from Smashbox at other places such as Sephora but these three are the ones that really caught my eye.  I think it would be wrong to play favourites and I should just get them all, don't you think?!  And I can feel good about it, $1 from every WISH set sold will go to the Children's Miracle Network!
