Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner in Violet

This lip liner blows my mind! It's truly smudge-proof, which is very rare - it doesn't bleed when you eat or drink. The colour stays put for hours, as it is water-resistant.

Another nifty invention: the pencil is self-sharpening. The tip is sharpened every time you twist off the cap, allowing for precise application. It took me a while to figure this out though...

The colour is high-impact enough to wear the liner on its own under lip balm, but this would look great under most dark shades and would give them a rich, bluish undertone. Definitely a worthwhile purchase!

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipgloss , Lip lacquer and Lip Liner

I was super excited to try the new Smashbox lip goodies Beauty Bulletin has sent me.
I received the Always sharp lip liner in the color "Nude dark", the Be Legendary lip gloss in "Sugar Cane" and the long wear lip lacquer in the color "After Dark".

Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Liner.

I personally don't like the color that was sent to me. It's a dark brown lip liner and although I have a fair complexion, I tried it and I love the fact that it's self sharpening. Big bonus for me!
The lip liner goes on very comfortably, has a creamy texture and it keeps lipstick from bleeding.
I would definitely buy but this time in a light nude color.


Smashbox Be Legendary Lip gloss.

I love this lip gloss. The color is a shimmery brown. It looks natural on my fair skin tone. Usually I hate lip glosses, because it's always sticky and my hair always clings to it. But with this one I sometimes forget that I have something on my lips. It's not sticky at all and leaves my lips moisturized.
I would definitely buy. I love the color and it has a pleasant smell.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Lacquer.

I received this lip lacquer in After dark. I won't be buying this one anytime soon. I don't prefer this specific color. It's a dark plum color and I'm not used to something so dark but I gave it a try anyway. It really is moisturizing. Definitely have to agree on that one.
But what I don't like is that it leaves a stain on your lips and that stain is long wearing.
The lip lacquer I have, gave too much color payoff, so I had to blot my lips with a tissue for it to look for more natural.



Overall I really love Smashbox cosmetics. I believe It's high quality. This is my first time using it and I will definitely consider the rest of the line.

Pouting Perfection. ALL. DAY. LONG


Lip Gloss

Of the three items, this is the one that didn’t appeal to me as much. Reason being, after using the lip lacquer, there is no going back. Why compete with 5 hours of high pigmented glossy goodness? I got mine in the shade Coquette which was a bit of a change up. I challenged myself to wearing bright and vibrant colours, this season, but this gloss came in handy when I wanted to tone it down. The pinkish hue reminds me of bubblegum! It is the ideal shade for everyday, and a subtle colour to pair with a beautiful smokey eye at night. I was quite impressed by how silky smooth the consistency is – I dislike gooey, over glossy lip products. There isn’t much pigment but you can definitely build it up! This is the perfect companion to your handbag, to brighten up and touch up, throughout the day.

Lip Liner

Lip liner is back and oh-so trendy! If you’re a newbie to lips, like me, you’re probably thinking that you can skip out on the lip liner and go straight to the lippies. But you’ll quickly learn how essential these babies are. Lip liners are vital for 3 main reasons: they extend the longevity, prevent feathering and enhances lip shape. The always sharp lip liner from Smashbox fulfils its promises of always being ready to line your lips with its nifty ‘twist the cap’ feature. That’s right, you need to twist the cap to open it, which ensures that the liner is at just the right level of sharpness before use. I got mine in the shade Fuchsia. Unlike previous liners that I have used, Smashbox’s offers a smooth glide, over the lip, highly pigmented and long lasting effect. I love using mine with bright, vibrant colours to create my own hues for well-defined, kissable lips.


Lip Lacquer

This has got to be my favourite of the three products sent. The Lip Laquers come in 20 different shades that range from lilac and milky all the way to rich and deep burgundies, mine was in the shade Flamingo. I want them all! The Lip Lacquers offer a long wearing and highly pigmented coverage, which has moisturising properties which include vitamin E and avocado oil. When compared to other products, I would say they are very similar to a glossy stain or liquid lipstick. Just like most, the glossiness wears off around 2,5 hours after application but the colour stains and offers a very highly pigmented lip for a long lasting time (10am-3pm = FIVE HOURS!) that is while drinking and eating in-between, and if that isn’t enough, combine it with the fabulous lip liner, and get a full 8 hour coverage. I have found that with most lip stains, they have a drying effect that makes your lips all gooey and soft, while you’re wearing it but once it has worn off, you feel that you need some sort of intensive treatment to restore and hydrate your lips. However, these little gems offer a unique formula which restores and nourishes lips, so even if you already have cracked lips, these will help in treating the condition. There is no denying that there is a lip lacquer for every girl, and you NEED just 1 or 2… or all 20!

Smashing Smashbox!

I was sent the Smashbox Be Legendary lip products to review and couldn't have been more excited - what a fantastic product to be chosen to review!

I had been looking into using lipliner more often and was really happy that one came along in my package of Smashbox goodies - the whole idea of lining and colouring in your lips with a matching lipliner is genius as your lipstick/lipgloss will last SO much longer, and I hate the pesky reapplication process.

The colours I was sent were absolutely gorgeous: -

I received the lipliner in a lovely peachy orangey coral colour, absolutely spot on for spring/summer. The colour pigmentation is fantastic and suited my complexion to a T! I've tried using it just to line my lips and also to colour them in, and this ensured that the gloss in a matching colour definitely stayed put for longer! I adore the self sharpening aspect of the pencil, although I do find myself repeatedly trying to just pull of the cap, rather than twist it. So so lovely to have a nice sharp tip each time I use the liner again - why does this not come as a standard feature of every single lipliner/eyeliner???

The lip lacquer was in a matching shade to the liner, and also really did my complexion justice. It lasted really long and wasn't sticky, but instead very smooth and moisturising, and went on so smoothly.

The lip gloss looked gold in the tube, which was slightly off putting but once you apply it it's more of a neutral shimmery gloss - goes well by itself or applied over other lip products and colours. In the box it gave you a tip to apply it to the middle of your bottom lip to make lips look plumper - I tried this and wow but it definitely works!

Both glosses had a lovely sweet scent to them too - not in a cheap tacky, kiddies gloss kind of way, it was very subtle, but it made applying them a pleasure.

Overall, I liked all three of my products. While they're fantastic and I'd love to buy them again, they were a little pricey for my budget to make into regular purchases, but maybe as a treat to myself (or a gift from others *wink wink*)!
