Smashbox - Be Legendary Lipstick

Sunday, July 07, 2013

So the strangest thing happened, i was on my way to get my hair done at the salon and somehow ended up in boots... so obviously i had to go and check out the makeup!

I found myslef hovering around the Smashbox section because i love their primer and have recently tried their Photo Set Finishing Powder (which i hope to review soon).
As I have never tried any makeup from Smashbox I thought i would scope out what's availible.

I was instantly drawn to this lipstick due to the pretty shade which is actually called 'pretty social' it looked so shiney I just had to swatch it. The colour is a gorgeous every day shade and i just had to have it.
This is a colour from the cream shades collection but there was also some great matte shades too.

 



















Once I had my hair done I headed straight to the loos to try out my new lippy, I don't know about you but i always feel like i have to go and re-apply all my makeup after having my hair done! anyway i instantly loved the texture and the shine of this lipstick it is so buttery and smooth to apply.



 
The lipstick contains some great moisturising treats for your lips too, such and shea butter and vitamins C and E which is an extra bonus.



I love everything about this lipstick the only draw back i would have to highlight is that it doesn't stay put for very long, althought the matte shades are listed has having adherence power so these may perform a little better.

I would say that for the £15.50 price tag it is definitley on par with other similarly priced products such as mac but with the extra bonus of the moisturising properties.

I was going to put a link in for boots as this is where i bought it from but for some reason this shade doesn't appear on the website which is a little odd.

I spotted a lovely eyeshadow pallete while I was browsing the Smashbox section so that is ranked pretty high on the wish list now too.
