  • "I don't wear lipstick unless it's matte liquid lipstick. I went into this expecting me not to like it while also hoping to be able to use all my regular lipsticks that I don't touch anymore. But now with this I CAN. I have fallen IN LOVE. Let me say, its amazing because you can have beautiful matte lips WITHOUT the dry sucking your life out feeling. My lips feel smooth and and I can smile without cracking my lips!!! The consistency feels like Benefit's Porefessional or Maybelline's Babyskin. $24 isn't too bad of a price, and theres always the cheaper way by putting setting powder on your lips, but I love this stuff. Its worth the money because you don't need that much on your lips anyways, so it'll last you a while!" in 30 reviews

This is magic in a little tube. It's probably the best thing I've bought makeup wise and that is saying a lot. I use it all the time and you barely need hardly any each time so the tube lasts forever! You have to make sure you tap it onto your lips instead of smearing it like a lipstick. That is a must. After applying it try not to smack your lips too much so they can dry. I've never had a lipstick that this little thing did not work on! It's a must have. Its pricey but I've had this for over a year and a half and it works perfectly and I dont see myself running out anytime soon. Love it. I can't say enough about it!

I am a huge fan of this product as I am with pretty much h everything I have purchased from smashbox thus far. This product is a little pricy for the amount you get, however I feel it is totally worth it and this is why. 

As we are all well aware by now, matte lips are super in . This product will literally take all of your lipsticks and turn them into matte finish lipsticks. So instead of having to go out and purchase your favorite lip colors in a matte finish, you’ve essentially doubled your lip collection by purchasing this one product. 

It almost works like magic. I apply my lipstick as I would normally and then apply this product to either a lip brush or even just my finger and dab it over my lips. DAB this on! Do not smudge or obviously it will smudge the color beneath and leave it looking uneven. It does not dry out then lipstick or make it feather or flake. If you apply this properly it becomes out beautiful! Instantly the finish transforms to matte! I would totally recommend this prudent and I will definitely be purchasing again.

I received a sample of Smashbox Cosmetics Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer in my March box. Immediately I was impressed by the sample size, it was a lot bigger than I was expecting. The consistency is a lot like a primer, it goes on like a lip balm, it's scentless and tasteless, it works immediately, and it doesn't dry out my lips. After I put it on, it felt like I was wearing a thick chapstick and my lipstick looked more pigmented. One big downside is that I noticed the color transferred easily. Most of my go-to lipsticks are already matte, so I wouldn't buy this, but it would be a great addition to someone's collection who wants a matte version of something they already own.

I do have to say this makes a very interesting, fun concept to lipstick. Most people do use it wrong. You don't wipe it on you've had it on the lipstick you already have on. As you pet it on the lipstick turns to Matt. But if he swap it on it won't work as good. I cannot wait for my girl to try this. It is one of their Christmas presents. I do recommend having some on hand.

I think this is such a cool idea for a beauty product, that I have personally not seen out on the market. This is a great product to have to expand the horizons of your beloved lipsticks and get more use out of products. This gel will make any cream lipstick out there a velvety matte finish lipstick. I tried this Insta-Matte Transformer gel with my regular cream lipstick and I don't know why I was so surprised that it was a clear gel basically like a primer. It was so cool to watch my lipstick transform instantly with one swipe of this gel. I loved that my lipstick got a cool new matte look to it while still being the creamy moisturizing lipstick that I loved. This matte transformer gel is such a game changer for my everyday lipstick game. I can not wait to explore all my options with transforming my cream lipsticks into matte lipsticks.

This product definitely works. Ive used it often to mattify lipsticks. Doesn’t dry out lips and isnt a super matte finish but still pretty. Price is good in my opinion as its long lasting and goes on great. Would recommend to others. Love this!

I am not a fan of this. I recieved this in a Birchbox last month. It does make cream lipsticks have a matte finish, but that is the only thing it does. It does not improve the wear time, and I got lipstick on my finger when I applied it.

👯..Este gel matificante [casi no encuentro la palabra correcta 💪🏻😂] me parece muy buena opción para usar los labiales que ya tenemos en casa o cuando no encontramos ese tono que amamos en matte ... le doy cuAtro estrellas por que me parece que no se mezcla perfectamente con todos los labiales aunque trabaja muy bien !

I got a sample of this in my Birchbox from March. I really like this sample. It transforms any lipstick to a deep matte look! Although it doesn’t prevent color transfer, I’d definitely use again and recommend to someone who loves lipsticks!
