Smashbox recently released their new lipstick range. The Smashbox Be Legendary Lipsticks ($23 CAD) come in two finishes, Cream and Matte, and are available in a total of 26 shades.
The 18 Cream shades are enriched with shea butter to hydrate lips and antioxidant protection thanks to added Vitamins C and E. They have a silky cream feel and soft shine. The 18 Matte shades are a hybrid formula with a silky texture and intense colour payoff. They have great lasting power without feeling overly dry. They are also enriched with Vitamins C and E. I had three of the new lipsticks to try out. Two matte shades, Mauve Matte and Scream Queen Matte, as well as one Cream finish in Get Fired.
Mauve Matte truly offers a matte finish in a beautiful and opaquely pigmented mauve pink. Scream Queen Matte still offered great colour payoff but with a bit more translucency and a finish that was a little less flat matte than Mauve Matte. Get Fired is an absolutely gorgeous orange red with a glossy sheen.
Smashbox also recently released the Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer ($26 CAD). This powder free gel blends into any cream lipstick to instantly give it a matte finish. You can double the lipstick shades in your collection with this handy product.
