Review for: Spoiler Alert (cool mauve) (Only at ULTA!) more...
YOU NEED THIS LIPSTICK!!!! not only does it come in a huge range of beautiful matte shades, from neutrals to the brightest brights, the formula is unbelievably comfortable. This particular shade is a gorgeous purpley mauve color with a little bit of a warm tone to it (i can wear it with warm or cool toned looks!). it dries down completely matte, and i can barely feel it on my lips. it is smudge proof, though it transfers just a little bit, but doesn’t ruin your lip lines. the applicator is teardrop shaped and allows you to easily achieve sharp lines in one swipe. the ONLY thing i don’t love about this lipstick is the amount of product you get for the price. It took me a long time standing in sephora to get myself to decide to purchase half a liquid lipstick tube for a higher price than say, a full size anastasia liquid lip (the smashbox one has a way better formula imo), but i am so glad i talked myself into it. i can’t wait to purchase more shades! these are so worth it!

Review for: Deep Orange more...
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: Fair Game (light peach nude) (Only at ULTA!) more...
I got this liquid lipstick  after seeing it on instagram. While the colour might not be for everyone (I think it can be too light ), the formula is great. It is not totally opaque on first glide, as it were, but it builds easily and dries down to a perfect matte. It boasts eight hour wear, which is achievable in theory, but like any liquid lipstick it starts to wear slightly on the upper part of the lower lip after eating anything remotely greasy. On top of that, it is not completely transfer proof (I get a smudge on the top of coffee cups). Nevertheless, this liquid lipstick does not dry my lips out, and it's really comfortable to wear. It's easy to remove, and after taking it off my lips somehow feel more moisturised than when I put it on.

Review for: Warm Pink more...
I received a sample in the color "Driver's Seat" in my January Birchbox, which is described as a "warm pink". On my skin tone (light olive pigment) it looks like a very nice, light terracota pot. I love it! It is also MATTE, but not so much the my lips look dry. They look very smooth, like pillows. The pigmentation is THERE. It took only one application to get full coverage. I really like the applicator as well, it's very easy to control. There is very minimal transfer, almost none. I didn't have any after my first kiss back of the hand test. It feels pretty lightweight on my lips. It is a little bit drying, but no where near as bad as other brands. I had it on for roughly 5 hours before I felt like I needed to reapply. It did not notice it budge which eating and drinking water. But I could tell that it was fading, which can be expected. It's a mid range price, but it may be worth it if you love lipstick, like I do.

Review for: Fair Game (light peach nude) (Only at ULTA!) more...
Seriously this is a new found love of mine. This is the most comfortable matte liquid lipstick I've used, ever! It feels like there's nothing on my lips or around my mouth and I love the variety of shades. I just bought fair game as an every day nude. It doesn't transfer, my only one slight complaint is that after a few hours it starts to put emphasis on the liners in your lips. However, the color lasts, so I can deal with the little bit of aging in my lips. Needless to say I will be buying more.

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: Purple Taffy (pastel purple) (Only at ULTA!) more...
I bought this lipstick after I saw it on Kandee Johnson. Purple is my favvvorite lip color to wear so the second I saw this, I bought it. I was excited to put it through the rest of its 8 hour wear claims it stood the test of time! I put it on before work at 11 am, ate and drank through the day and at 9:30.. still there! I’m so impressed. I use a lip mask every single tonight to restore moisture, and I think that helped with the comments saying it was a little “too” matte or too drying. I normally always used Jeffree Star, his liquid lips are always my go to, but I use an oil underneath it. With smashbox, I didn’t even need the oil! It never flaked or chunked off, I absolutely love it.

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
