Some of you may recall I first tried these liquid lipsticks from Smashbox back in September while on holiday and completely fell in love with it. It is by far, one of the best liquid formulas I’ve ever tried and the pigment is to die for.
The last shade I tried was a gorgeous bright coral, Thrill Seeker, and today’s shade, Dream Huge, is an equally as gorgeous rose shade. It’s funny because rose shades weren’t really on my radar before this year, but after reds, they might just be my second favourite, or at least joint second favourite shade along with berry shades.
The pigment as I mentioned is incredible; it is a full coverage, opaque pigment with amazing colour pay off and the lasting power is unreal. It lasts so well throughout the day, and even though it has a matte finish, it doesn’t crack or flake as you wear it either.
The formula itself isn’t hydrating, but it does have a creaminess to it that helps keep your lips soft and smooth. I didn’t have to apply any balm with it as I do with some liquid mattes, and because of that, it’s definitely in my top five liquid matte formulas and comes very close behind my all time favourite, Meet Matt(e) Hughes liquid mattes from theBalm.
Smashbox do so many great products; I adore their Photo Finish primer for example, but I don’t use them nearly often enough. If anything, this lippy has reignited my love for the brand and I can’t wait to try out some more lippies!
It is quite simply, perfection in a lipstick and one I would definitely recommend trying , especially if you’re a liquid lipstick fan.
Okay, I think I’ve died and gone to lipstick heaven! Oh who am I kidding, that happens me all the time, but today’s lipstick is as pretty close to perfect as you can get.
I’ve tried a lot of Smashbox products over the years, many of which I’ve loved, but for some reason had never tried one of their lipsticks until today. And now, I don’t know why I left it this long.
The formula of these liquid lippies is so creamy, yet when it dries in, gives a lovely matte finish to the lips with the most incredible lasting power. In fact, I think this might be one of the best lipsticks I’ve ever tried for lasting power that doesn’t crack or flake after a while.
The shade is, let’s be honest, what dreams are made of! It is the perfect orange toned red, somewhere in between MAC’s Lady Danger and YSL’s Le Orange in colour. It is my favourite kind of shade and I really did not want to take it off at the end of the day.
The applicator is also brilliant, it has a triangle brush tip, very similar to the YSL Lip Creams and Armani Lip Magnets, both of which I adore for that very reason, and this is no different. The pointed tip makes application so precise and easy, and gives the perfect full coverage to the lips when you apply.
It is moisturising and smooth to wear, and I would happily wear it every day if I could! While there’s only 100 days left of my challenge (can you believe it?!), and I still have a lot more lippies to try, I can’t wait to be able to wear this again.
It was just lovely in every way and one I would definitely recommend if you like a liquid matte lip.
