Decked Out. collection until someone passes out from the excitement.  This year’s selection of holiday gifts is impressive, but also budget-friendly!  The gem of the Smashbox Holiday 2017 gifting collection is the Smashbox Shadow + Contour + Blush Palette.  It has all of the wow factor of a mega palette, without the hefty pricetag.  **AND** The Smashbox Friends & Family sale has started so if you click HERE to shop at Smashbox today, you’ll get 25% off of your purchase of $50 or more!

The palette features art by Ana Strumpf, and comes packaged with a sheet of stickers you can use to decorate the gift-wrapped box!  The overall look of the packaging is playful and festive, but not in an overtly “holiday” way.  In other words, you’ll proudly carry this palette through Spring without it looking off-season.
