Lip glosses are not everyone’s cup of tea, some love it and some hate it, well it is not easy to please everyone right? Spring is here, maybe you should think about changing the routine and try things you are not really into. Having glossy lips can be one of these things, with the reflection of sun your lips would be glowing. Glowing, shimmery Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss range has some colours that you might want to check out.
Lip glosses are back again this year. This year, some of the trends are about having glowy skin and makeup, like applying Vaseline to your eye lids and cheeks to get that dewy look, would you do it? Since I already have oily skin, I will most likely skip it and only use Vaseline on my lips, but I will jump to lip gloss wagon.
Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss Review
I’ve had these Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss set since November (I guess it’s from Holiday 2015 Collection – Art.Love.Color|Lips), however, I didn’t really used them back then as in Winter having wet lips means getting extra dry lips for me. Do you have the same problem?
The Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss set has 5 lip glosses. Coraline is described as True Coral, it gives glossiness, but there’s not much colour going on. Disco Rose is a Rich Rose colour and gives red&rose mix finish and once the lip gloss settles there’s some reddish tint on the lips. It feels like a sheer lipstick. Orchid is a beautiful sheer berry colour. Pout is Pale Blue Pink and like Coraline, it doesn’t really give any colour, so it rather reflects your natural lips. Superstar is soft golden grape colour and it has really fine shimmers in it. You can see little sparkles on the lips.
SmashBox Be Legendary Lip Gloss is descried as a weightless and non-sticky lip gloss, which I will not agree with 100%, there are weightless lipsticks, however, I don’t think there’s such thing as weightless lip gloss. If you know any, please let me know! When you wear it, you feel it on your lips, but in time it feels lighter, which I don’t really mind. One of the things that put me off with lip glosses is the stickiness; I hate having my hair sticking to my lips, especially when it is windy. These lip glosses are a little sticky, so I won’t agree entirely with non-sticky formula. However, in the end which lip gloss is not sticky? Considering this, I have to say it is certainly better than normal lip glosses.
At first, they have glossy and shiny finish then once it settles they kinda look like in between glossy and opaque, so if you don’t like to have extra shiny lips then you should give this one a try. Most of the glosses are so sheer that you can’t really see any colour on the lips but glossiness, but these ones actually give some colour to the lips, for effortless look it can be a good pick. However, you shouldn’t expect something extra pigmented as they won’t look as pigmented as they look in the tube.
I love the moisturising effect of these lip glosses, my lips feel soft and they don’t tend to dry out. Longevity wise, it lasts a few hours on my lips which is good for a lip gloss (no drinking and eating). Even after a few hours, Disco Rose and Orchid leave some tint on the lips, so you can go for a while without refreshing your lip gloss.
The applicator is a winner, you can apply the lip gloss from both sides and there’s no excessive product on the wand, so you won’t have to worry about having too much lip gloss on the lips. If you like to know more about these lip glosses then please checkout the Smashbox website.
