Review for: Warm Pink more...
I received this sample product in my November Brichbox in the color Driver's Seat. I was super excited because I have heard so many good things about Smashbox! The color pigmentation is amazing and it took only one application to get full coverage.  I really like the applicator as well.
It really doesn't transfer hardly anything when I did the kiss the back of my hand test nothing came off.  I didn't have any bleeding as well like some colors do. It feels pretty lightweight on my lips but I do feel like it dries my lips a little bit.
I would say I had it on for about 4-5hrs before I felt like I need to reapply again. It didn't seem to come off when I was drinking water or eating. But I could tell that it was fading. 
I will have to say that the price is a bit much for what I normally pay for lipsticks. It's $24+ tax and I am not really going to pay that much for a lipstick.

Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in "Out Loud" is the perfect lowkey Orange to make any light, medium, or deep warm complexion glow. The color's saturation & pigmentation is on-point and it only took one application to my lips to have full coverage.

In my opinion, the sharp-edged doe foot applicator worked against my efforts to create a smooth and fuller lip, but this could just because this is the first Smashbox lip product I've used.

Does this Transfer? Hardly, if any. I did apply, wait for it to dry (1-2 mins) then kiss the back of my hand to get rid of any excess product that could eventually combat the sustainability of the product. No smudging, or roll off/crumbling occurred after that.

Staying power? I kept this on for 3-6 hours and I did find myself WANTING to reapply, but only because I happen to have drier than normal lips, so I did have a line where the product dissolved and my lips began, so I did reapply because that's just my style, but it's not required for this lipstick to stay prominently on them pouts.

Price point: at 24& +tax, is the price worth the payoff? No. That's why I gave it it 3/5, because if I'm going to be paying that much, ya better give me a more accessible/user friendly applicator, and a product that makes my picky af self think twice about busting out that lipstick for a second application 1-2 hours into wear.

I've included UNEDITED photos from my first wear test. If any of you experiment the line of dissolve when you wear liquid lipstick or any lipsticks, then you can understand why I have the 3/5 rating.

Review for: Deep Brick Red more...
soooo nice. mazing. Stila has been my long running HG LL but Smashbox is moving in on that title. The formula is creamy and smooth to apply,without streaking or patches. The dry down takes a minute or two but does fully dry down on me. The color is rich and opaque in a single pass. Wear time is incredible at 8+ hours with no touch ups. I do get the tiniest transfer onto straws,but only if my lips get wet. The formula feels good on,not drying in the least, without any cracking,smudging or piling. I own the shade Outloud (deep orange) and plan on purchasing other colors. The only con is the price,$24 for .13oz of product. While it's less then most other brands while being $4 more,the quality and performance make the price worth it.

Review for: Deep Red, Warm Pink more...
So this may be a little brief because I wrote a review and then the app crashed before I could post it, but these are the best liquid lipsticks I've ever tried!the applicator is the perfect shape to smoothly lip ur whole mouth with no need for a lip liner! It holds just enough product to cover your lips without refilling, but isn't drenched in too much. The tip is perfect for evening out your Cupid's bow or getting into the corners of ur mouth. The formula is super super comfortable and lasts almost the entire day, including eating. It does not feel dry or sticky at all, and only transfers a little when eating really greasy food, but most liquid lipsticks do this as well, and it still looks good afterwards. The color Bawse is my favorite red ever, and pairs really nicely with a simple wing and any nice event or holiday. Driver's Seat is a beautiful everyday color that pairs with like any makeup look! Overall, I highly recommend.

Review for: Deep Red more...
The Always On Liquid Lipstick is the first product I have tried from Smashbox and I absolutely love it! I have the shade "BAWSE" which a perfect red for my pale skin tone.

The liquid lipstick is sold for $24, which is more than what I usually spend on just one makeup product, but it is definitely worth the price. The formula is extremely long wearing without being drying at all. At first when I tried it on I was skeptical of the wear time, since it has a very thin consistency and felt like I had nothing on my lips, which I thought would translate into wearing off easily. After wearing it a few times, I have discovered that it is probably the most long wearing liquid lipstick I own. I wore it for hours and even after eating and drinking it looked just as it did when it was first applied. It did once slightly wear off at the corners of my mouth after eating, but it was easy to touch up and could've been ignored since it was not too noticeable.

I never tried any lip product with this type of applicator and I have found that it is perfect for precise lipstick application, which is crucial for a bold lip color, such as "Bawse". It distributes the product evenly without any streakiness and the pointed tip allows the user to apply the product perfectly for the shape of the lips without going outside the lip line.

This is a great lipstick that I highly reccommend you check out!!

Review for: Deep/Warm Plum, Deep Brick Red more...
First off the names of these are fun. I love the cube like packaging which gives it a unique look. The applicator is unique as well with a little circle in the middle almost like a tear drop applicator. As for the longevity, it isn't the best. It lasts for a few hours before I need to reapply. Is very matte but unfortunately makes it a little over drying and can start to crack. The colors are beautiful and strongly pigmented.It is a bit pricey at $23   Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick

Best stuff I have ever used!! I have always struggled with horrible acne, rosacea, scarring, and an uneven skin tone my whole life. I tried everything from drug store products all the way up to $300 prescriptions for acne and nothing worked for me until one of my coworkers introduced me to this! I use a dime size portion to cover my whole face at night and about 4-5 drops to cover my whole face during the day. (I use less during the day because it leaves a little bit of a tint to your skin and I don't want to look oily all day) I also put a moisturizer over the top of it at night. Within 2-3 days I noticed a HUGE difference!

Love, love, LOVE THIS COLOR!!! I got this sample in my month BirchBox and I couldn’t have been more excited. Went on very easy, stays on all day, and matte! I have very dry lips as well, making some matte lipstick look awful, but this one is rocking it. Does not make my lips feel or look dry. Perfect color also for us blonde, pale skinned people out there!

Review for: Deep/Warm Plum, Deep Nude, Warm Pink more...
I've purchased a few shades of the Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick. I love the color range, there are so many beautiful shades. To me, an all day liquid lipstick should last all day or at least the amount of hours the company claims. The applicator is amazing and really helps to line the lips. Now, some of the shades (the deeper ones) are a little patchy. They do NOT last all day and they are NOT transfer proof. This is very disappointing to me, especially with them being $24 each. I did a full review on my YouTube channel (inkprincess85)

Review for: Rose more...
My absolute GO-TO lip color, it has become such a part of my everyday routine that I literally get messages asking what "that one amazing lipstick I always wear" is. I swear by this product, long-lasting, beautiful color, hydrating, easy to wear and I always get compliments when wearing it. I have tried a few other brands of liquid lipstick (Anastasia Beverly Hills, Stila) but they pale in comparison to this formula, it can't be beat. I bought it last October and it is starting to run out, but I will be heading back in to get another as soon as it is gone.

As seen in the pics below, the only constant in the midst of my changing hairstyles this last year has been this lipstick (as well as the dog filter on Snapchat)

I heard so many great things about this product of how comfortable, non drying and long lasing it is, but for that little product is it still worth it for the price?
