I am reviewing another shade “Thriller Seeker” from the Always On liquid lipstick range from Smashbox. This range offers a whole lot of shades, even edgy shades like grey!
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 Thrill Seeker Always On Liquid Lipstick:
The packaging of this liquid lipstick is quite unique, it’s a rectangular clear container with satin black twist up cap. I love the applicator because it has a scooped center that holds enough product to apply in a single dip instead of dipping into the tube again and again and the applicator has a pointed end that applies the lipstick precisely. The applicator distributes the product evenly on the lips.
The shade “Thrill Seeker” is a bright orange shade. It will look good on fair to medium skin tones. The formula is outstanding. It feels super comfortable on the lips compared to other liquid lipsticks. It is insanely pigmented and 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. This particular shade from the range was quite patchy but that worked fine after putting a second layer on.
It offers matte finish to the lips. Smash box claims 8 hours of wear, I would say that’s only the case with drinking or eating they would last that long or even more, but I saw slight transfer while drinking or eating, nothing major. These are not the most transfer proof lipsticks, but these are the most comfortable ones. These do not flake off which is a good sign. These are build-able and doesn’t look cakey. It feels very lightweight on the lips and doesn’t dry your lips out which is the major problem with other liquid lipsticks.
