Smashbox Shockaholic Always On Liquid Lipstick Review

Hi everyone,

I am going to review the shade “Shockaholic” in this post today. I had reviewed a few shades from this range earlier – (Bang Bang, Bawse, Thrill Seeker, Out Loud).


Product Description:
An eight-hour wear, liquid-matte lipstick with a featherweight, comfortable formula that stays put and keeps color looking as fresh and flawless as the first swipe. Perfected on-set in Smashbox’s L.A. photo studio, Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick leaves lips with ultra-lightweight, but bold color. This liquid-matte formula is infused with the lip-smoothing Smashbox Primer Oil complex for suede-soft lip color in an array of gorgeous, highly pigmented shades. The precision tip applicator lines and fills with one swipe of the no-drop reservoir, while Advanced Polymer Technology makes lip color stay put and look fresh and flawless for up to eight hours for smudge-proof, budge-proof, and non-feathering, carefree wear.  It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.


My Experience with Smashbox Shockaholic Always On Liquid Lipstick:

The packaging is quite unique, it is a rectangular clear container with a satin black twist up cap. I love the applicator with a scooped center which holds enough product to apply in a single dip instead of dipping into the product again and again and the applicator has a pointed end that applies the lipstick precisely. The applicator distributes the product evenly on the lips.


“Shockaholic” is a bright pink shade. It’s bright but bright in a way that it will flatter all skin tones. The formula is outstanding. It feels super comfortable on the lips compared to other liquid lipsticks. It’s insanely pigmented, does not feather. Generally, liquid lipsticks have a tendency to crack in between but these don’t which is a huge thumbs up for me.



It has a mousse-y texture which goes smoothly on the lips. It offers matte finish to the lips. The brand claims up to 8 hours of wear. I would say without drinking or eating, it would last that long or even more, but I saw slight transferring while drinking or eating, but nothing major. It’s not the most transfer-proof lipstick out there, but it’s the most comfortable ones out there.



It also does not flake off which is a good sign. It’s buildable and doesn’t look cakey. It feels lightweight on the lips and doesn’t dry your lips out which is the major problem with other liquid lipsticks.



Pros of Smashbox Shockaholic Always On Liquid Lipstick:

  • Beautiful shade range.
  • Goes on smoothly.
  • Doesn’t look cakey.
  • Lightweight on the lips.
  • Doesn’t dry out lips.
  • Doesn’t flake.
  • Pigmented.
  • Would suit all skin tones.
  • Doesn’t feather.

Cons of Smashbox Shockaholic Always On Liquid Lipstick:

  • None.
