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.
$24.00 USD for 0.13 oz.
An eight-hour, liquid matte lipstick that feels light, stays put, and delivers pigmented colour in a range of nudes, bolds, and metallics. Specifically formulated not to dry out lips, this lipstick delivers rich, lightweight colour with a liquid matte finish. The flexible formula makes it easy to inspire your inner artist. Advanced polymer technology ensures colour stays put for up to eight hours without flaking, bleeding, or feathering. The applicator holds enough product to precisely line and fill in a single swipe. The formula also contains a primer oil complex to make lips feel comfortable and prevent drying. This product is available in matte and metallic matte finishes. It is formulated without parabens, phthalates.
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.
Shade and Finish: The shade is described as a ‘metallic rose gold’ and it is indeed a very stunning metallic pink bronze shade with gold glitter. This colour will complement all types of skin tones.
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.
Overall, I am really happy with the colour pay off, the texture and the longevity of the lipstick. The lipstick can be easily removed with an oil based makeup remover.
