For Christmas I received some mini Smashbox lipsticks which I was soooo excited about because I’d never even tried one before never-mind owned one! All of the lipsticks are from the ‘Be Legendary’ range!
As you may know if you’ve read some of my other posts, I love lipstick, but I’m a stickler for a good old MAC lippy so I never even really think to venture much further than the MAC counter.
The colours I got were: Legendary, Inspiration, Tabloid, Fig, Famous, Primrose and a little bottle of ‘Insta-Matte’.
<3 Legendary – Coral Red
<3 Inspiration– Bright Fuschia
<3 Tabloid – Light Purple
<3 Fig – Red Grape
<3 Famous – Nude Coral
<3 Primrose – Nude Pink (Pinker in real life)
All of the lipsticks have very good lasting power and impressive colour pay off. My favourite thing about these lipsticks is how they can be warn with a more sheer finish or worked up to a higher coverage meaning you can wear them day and night! They’re very comfortable to wear on the lips and not at all drying. However, I did find the insta-matte to ruin the lipstick for me, although it did a very good job of transforming the lipstick from glossy to matte, I found the gel-like formula to be very sticky which in turn resulted in the lipstick being not as long-lasting 🙁
My favourite colour is Fig and my least favourite Tabloid (I am just not that bold!) Which are your favourites? The full size versions of these are £18, a little pricier than MAC but not by too much and there are soooooo many colours to choose from if none of these took your fancy!
Let me know if you’ve ever tried a Smashbox lippy and what you thought!
