Smashbox liquid lipstick formula is one of the most comfortable lightweight lipstick formula in the market. They recently came out with metallic matte liquid lipsticks. Today, I will be reviewing the shade “XO Vlada.” This beautiful shade was created by the very talented makeup artist Vlada Haggerty. Her lip art is just mind blowing. Those lip dripping art you see on Kylie lip kit packaging is designed by her, so let’s see how this liquid lipstick fared for me.

My Experience with Smashbox Always On Metallic Matte Liquid Lipstick XO Vlada:
Packaging: The Smashbox XO Vlada liquid lipstick comes in a sleek, rectangular, see-through packaging with Smashbox engraved on it. The tube comes with a metallic silver cap. The bottom of the tube specifies the name “XO Vlada.” The applicator is a pointed with a dip in the middle. The applicator is really good and helps to fill the corner of the lips very easily and spreads the lipstick evenly. The applicator dip holds extra product, so you don’t need to dip the applicator twice. The tube shows the colour of the lipstick inside so it’s very useful. The packaging is very travel friendly and lightweight.

Texture and Application: The texture of this liquid lipstick is very creamy and liquid-y. The liquid lipstick goes on very creamy when first applied, but after a few minutes, it dries completely matte into budge-proof and smudge-proof finish. The lipstick feels very comfortable on the lips and not at all drying. The lipstick has a slight fresh fragrance to it which doesn’t last long.

Pigmentation and Coverage: The lipstick is super pigmented and super opaque. It gives a full coverage even if the lips are pigmented.
Staying Power: The staying power is really good with this lipstick. It stays on for around 6 hours without the need to reapply. However, it will start to fade if you eat oily meals.
