Smashbox Gloss Angeles Trio Set ($29) is a limited edition lipgloss set that launched with the Smashbox Holiday 2020 Collection. I gotta admit that throughout the year Smashbox fail to wow me! They just don’t do seasonal collections the way they used to but when the Holidays come around I tend to look over their launches because I feel like they are sooooooo underrated! The palettes and sets they create for the Holidays are always brilliant!

This particular set is great if you’re a lipgloss lover! The Gloss Angeles formula is brilliant and this set contains three full size lipglosses at a really affordable price (under $10 per gloss). I really, really wish they’d do a full vault of the Gloss Angeles because I’d buy that in a heartbeat! If you love the formula too you can snag a five piece set, all full-size, free shipping at!

Smashbox Gloss Angeles Trio Set and the Halo Cheek Palette are two of the first Holiday 2020 purchases I made this year. I think Smashbox was kind of the first brands to launch their Holiday sets as they came out around September 15th and I got my hands on the blush palette less than a week later after ordering it from Ulta.

Smashbox Gloss Angeles Trio Set contains two full-size Gloss Angeles glosses in Hustle & Glow (rose gold shimmer) and Celeb Sighting (mid-tone berry) and a full-size Gloss Angeles Extra Shine Clear Lip Gloss. Typically these are $20 each which gets you $60 worth of gloss at under half off the original retail making this a nice value set.

The set arrives in a red plastic case with a clear top. It’s reusable case and you can easily store several lipglosses in it or make a little overnight kit out of it filling it with your essential makeup.

Gloss Angeles Extra Shine Clear Lip Gloss is probably my favorite part of this set. I love a good clear glossy gloss and this brings that to the table. This is a thick formula in a squeeze tube with a needle nose applicator. It reminds me of the old Maybelline Shine Shot Glassy Shine Lip Topcoat. The formula is a bit sticky and has an intensely shiny finish that looks incredible alone or over your favorite lipstick or even to add more glossiness to a lipgloss. I noticed no fragrance or flavor.

Next up we have the two Gloss Angeles Lipglosses. You get one cream shade here and one sparkle shade. I like the cream finish the best! The color is a gorgeous berry rose and the formula is creamy without being tacky or sticky! It applies smooth and has excellent pigmentation with a four hour wear time. The second shade is a shimmery golden rose. This shade is sheerer and gives lips a bronze-y rose shimmer. The shimmer is pretty fine but can be a pain once the color wears away as a shimmery residue is left behind. This shade wore for about three hours on my lips. Both shades have a vanilla flavor and fragrance! You can mix and match all three of these shades together or wear them individually.

All in all, this was a great little set! I really liked it and I’m glad I purchased it. If you’re a gloss girl or guy I’d recommend picking it up!

Smashbox Gloss Angeles Trio Set is available now.

Smashbox Gloss Angeles Trio Set is a new, limited edition Holiday 2020 set that includes three full-size lipglosses for $29. I was very pleased with the performance on the clear gloss and the rosy berry shade! Both had shiny finishes and the rosy shade had excellent color pay off. The clear shade had no flavor nor fragrance but both the cream and shimmer shade had a vanilla fragrance and flavor. The shimmer shade was lovely but it did leave behind a shimmery residue as the shine wore away.


  • Great value for three full-size lipglosses!
  • Fantastic formula.
  • Cute reusable case!


  • One of the glosses as shimmer residue as color and shine wears down.


Smashbox Gloss Angeles Trio Set is a brilliant little set for lipgloss lovers!
