Hope you are at all doing great. I have been doing some shopping as the Pre-Sale Season has already begun, I have my eyes set on a few products that I have been lusting for a while, because at their original price they can be expensive.
The days are cold and the nights colder and it starts getting dark by almost 4pm which is very depressing. 🙁 I am using bright lip shades to brighten up my days. Today, I will be reviewing one such lipstick from Smashbox Be Legendary Range in the shade Fig.
Our best-selling, ultra-luxe lipsticks for any party perfect lip look. Just one swipe and you’ll see this is the stuff beauty legends are made of! This ultra-luxe formula glides on for show-stopping, saturated color every time. You can make lips even more luscious by changing their shape. Subtly round out your upper lip around the Cupid’s bow with Always Sharp Lip Liner for an iconic, heart-shaped pout.
Price: $20 for 3g (Sephora).
Packaging: These lipsticks come in black squared shape packaging which is metallic and black in color. The twist up mechanism for using the lip color is very smooth.
Shade: This particular shade Fig is described as Red Grape by the brand but to be it looks more like a berry shade, which is absolutely drool-worthy.
Texture: This belongs to the creamy family of lipsticks from Smashbox and this is incredibly moisturizing. The creamy texture with the shine and looks absolutely fab on lips.
My Experience with Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig:
I am a fan of matte lipsticks and the reason is that they are more vivid and wear longer, but I did want to buy a creamy one since long, as they add an oomph factor. I did a few trials at the beauty stores like MAC, Bite, Bareminerals and Stila, but this had the texture and comfort I was looking for and above that this color Fig is such a beautiful fall shade I had to get this. This belongs to the berry family of berry shades and looks stunningly glossy.
Now the application ummm…it’s a dream, I swear it just glides on the lips (makkan)and is extremely moisturizing. The lipstick is highly pigmented and it delivers 80-90% of color in the first swipe. There is no distinct smell in the lipstick its virtually odorless. I had a preconception that the lipstick might not last very long as it’s a moisturizing, one but to my surprise it lasted on for 4-5 hours with some snacks.
There are 20 shades to choose from so it a great reason to wear such an awesome creamy lipstick. I am glad I got this, couldn’t have asked for more. I have been wearing MAC retro mattes for some time now and I am enjoying the change in texture, though MAC retro mattes are extremely long wearing but they take a toll on the lips during winters, so this winter I will be with Smashbox Be Legenday and yesss…I do have a few more shades in mind.
