Received this is my Ipsy bag for December in the color "Legendary" (which doesn't appear to be otherwise available). The color is a bit too pink for my tastes (ended up using another color over it to bring it into more of a berry red that I like) and initially applied more sheer than I expected. However, it's smooth, creamy, beautifully glossy, and builds up.Because it's more like a gloss, there's no dry down, so it transfers and smudges easily and needs a lot of reapplication. I didn't have a lot of trouble with bleeding, but I can see using a liner with it being useful since it really is such a creamy formula. It actually works better as a topcoat over a darker color for me. It'ss the wider traditional lipstick, and I prefer the more pencil form because it gives more control. and I don't think it'll get as much love as my Nyx, Sephora, or Maybelline lipsticks.

I got a mini sample of this in my Ipsy bag last month. My lips have been so dry this winter that I didn't want to use my normal liquid matte lipstick. The benefits of this lipstick is that it's pigmented, goes on creamy, smells slightly vanilla-y but not offensively so and is not drying. However it definitely bleeds and needs a lip liner, which I do not generally use, transfers onto everything and wears away easily. After talking for 10 minutes at work it was already gone from my inner corners of my lips. It also feels slightly tacky everytime I press my lips together, which is unpleasant. All and all, I think I will use this but I would not go out of my way to buy this given how many other options there are in this category.

I got this from ipsy so it's a sample size but I was really excited to be receiving it! However it really didn't live up to my expectations. I had problems with it for at least a half hour after I had put it on. It kept smearing and moving around even when I really wasn't doing much other than driving/shopping! It finally settled and it hasn't really been a problem since (it has been about 4 and a half hours since I put it on now). It's pretty but I don't think it's all that worth it, I have plenty of other good red lipsticks that I don't have problems with and personally prefer over this. I won't be purchasing again but I'll probably keep using it until I use it up because even as a sample size it has a lot of product in it!

Since I was younger, I was never a fan of lipsticks. I found that they settled in the lines of your lips too much, were extremely drying to your lips, and all around uncomfortable to wear.

With these, I will say that it is completely the opposite! However, these are more on the sheer side so you might need a few coats to get the look that you are going for. I have this in the shade “Rogue” and it is absolutely gorgeous. It is not too pink and not too red. It reminds me of a nice lighter mauve (?) color.

These are like most lipsticks and definitely not transfer or kiss proof, so you will need a few applications after eating or drinking. Disappointing, but the color shade range is extensive & these lipsticks are gorgeous.

Review for: Deep Red Cream more...
Not my favorite at all. Very glossy and not pigmented which means that the color is not very lasting. It is however smooth and soft when applying it but you will instantly feel that it is way too creamy. Not only that but it also bleeds everywhere and easily which is annoying , especially that we are all now used to the liquid lipstick that stay in all day and that are not bleeding. Smash is is a reputable brand and usually have decent products however I do not believe that this line of lipsticks is worth the $20.

Love this lipstick! The color is the perfect shade of red. The pigmentation is perfect!
It has decent staying power.
It goes on smooth and is creamy.
I purchased mine from ipsy after receiving a small version in a different color.
It is a little pricey. You can get similar lip sticks cheaper but I still think this one is worth it.
If you are looking for the perfect shade of red this is it!

I would and DO recommend this product all the time! I use the Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in Inrared red and it is stunning. It is highly pigmented and stays on ALL. DAY. LONG. throughout eating, talking, and running around at my job. I love the Infrared color in particular because it is matte and it is the perfect shade of red. It matches my red uniform at work, and is the perfect holiay "true" red. It does not have an orange undertone to it, which is what I love.
I have tried other matte lipsticks and what's different about the Smashbox Be Legendary matte lipsticks is how long is stays on and looking fabulous for hours on end. I get so many compliments on the Infrared matte red and how complimentary it is with my outfits.
Smashbox products can be purchased at Ulta Beauty or Sephora.

I first got this lipstick on a subscription website and was very excited to use It. It swatched so nicely and was creamy on application, however, it bled way too much— MAKE SURE YOU LINE WITH LIP LINER BEFORE APPLYING! Can’t say I hate it, and I’m willing to give it another chance because the color is so beautiful and PERFECT for the holiday season or a romantic date night look!

I love how easy and precise this Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick goes on. I love the pigament of the color. It's prefect for the holidays. I like that there's no scent. I love how long it lasts and stays on. I also like the shape of the container and how easy you can make the lipstick go up or down, so it doesn't break. I would definitely recommend Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick.

I also received this lippie in the color "legendary" from my Ipsy bag. Can't say it impressed me. For starters, I usually prefer liquid lipsticks as they tend to be more long lasting and have a matte finish. This lipstick was not at all matte and not as pigmented as I excepted it to be. I'm very disappointed since Smashbox is such a high end brand and I love their primers. What initially looked like deep berry red lipstick turned out to be some undesirable shade of pink. It smudged easily and wouldn't stay on through dinner. I'd much rather use my favorite lippies from Milani and Jeffree Star than this one.

As a lipstick junkie, I'm looking to add to my collection. How matte are these lipsticks compared to other products? Is it really drying to the lips?
