It’s been a few months since I picked up my first Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick. The first shade I got was “Driver’s Seat” which is a nice peachy-brown nude. I have already featured this in my monthly favorites so if you have been reading my blog for a while you probably know what I have to say about these.
Still, I wanted to try a few more shades after falling in love with the first one. So I got three shades in total. “Driver’s Seat” which I already mentioned and “Bawse” which is a bright red and “Big Spender” which is a darker nude pink.
The packaging is simple as Smashbox packaging tend to be. Nothing extravagant, just a clear square shaped type, a black lid and the logo. The wand is fairly short, and the applicator it drop shaped, which makes application very easy since the tip is pointed.
I have actually been very excited to share my opinions about these because they are absolutely phenomenal. The formula is a dry down liquid lipstick, and I have time and time again been raving about the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks being my hands down favorite formula when it comes to liquid lipsticks that dry down. However, these Smashbox goodies don’t come short of the JS ones, they are just as great! If you like the Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick formula I am sure you will like this because they are actually quite similar.
They are opaque in color and the wand makes them easy to apply. They dry down completely and are transfer proof while still feeling very comfortable on the lips. The staying power is also phenomenal. A full day at work with 9 + hour wear, countless cups of coffee, breakfast and lunch is no match for this liquid lip! I can go through all that without reapplying even once! Off course oily foods will dissolve a liquid lipstick no matter how great it is, but if you stay away from the most oily food then this is so impressive!
I sort of can’t say enough good things about these! They will be in my favorites of the year post for sure. The only negative thing I can say about these is that I wish they had a wider color selection because by owning these three I kind of picked out the shades that peaked my interest already, but I would like to own a whole bunch more of these because they are as good as a dry down liquid lipstick can get!
If you like formulas that dry down and are transfer proof I highly recommend checking out these!
