I think Smashbox is a fabulous brand. A brand created by makeup artists who are working with the product all the time, they know what they are missing from their kit, what lasts, what works and so on. Also, photographers who see the finished look, how certain products work under the pressure of lighting. This is why I trust Smashbox as a brand, products are created by experts who know what they want to achieve.
The very popular Be Legendary lipsticks are already popular, they have a smooth creamy formulation in a good mix of cream and velvet Mattes finishes. The creative team noticed though, that makeup artists at shoots were mixing shades to get the right lip colour. It’s all well and good mixing shades (I do it all the time!) but when it comes to creating that exact same shade again you have to remember the exact mix! Instead Smashbox decided to extend their lipstick range, covering all the shade types from neutrals to pinks, berry tones to classic reds. Now there are 120 shades of gorgeous, with creamy and velvet matte finishes.
‘We’ve expanded our bestselling Be Legendary lipstick collection to an epic 120 shades, all moisture-rich, pigment packed and developed on-set to stay put all day.’ – Davis Factor, Smashbox Founder and Photographer.
The formulation is very light and the lipsticks do have ultimate staying power. I love the shades Punch Drunk and Infrared both velvet matte finishes of course! I love the sleek packaging and magnetic lid so lids don’t come off in your handbag (the worst!)
