Premium brands are always in trend and there is not one girl who does not love to lay her hands on one or more such products in her life. Smashbox happens to be a premium segment brand and is quite popular. I always wanted to try out its liquid lipstick and hence, I decided to get this shade for me. Let me share my thoughts on the same with you.

My opinion about the product:
If you decide to get your hands on this premium lipstick, this is what you are going to discover about it, upon application. The formula of the lip shade is quite light weight and offers a bold pay off. Perfected in a liquid matte formula, the lipstick contains a unique Primer oil which makes the lips supple and soft after application. The lipstick is also crafted with an advanced polymer technology that makes the lip shade stay for a longer time.
The price tag on this one might be quite high but I could not resist getting one for myself. The formula by itself is quite comfortable on the lips. However, I had hoped for a more neutral red but this turned out to be a brighter one for me. The wand is also unique and helps in precise application of the product. You can get a perfect opaque shade in one swipe of the lipstick.
As for its longevity, you can expect the lip shade to stay put for a minimum of 4-5 hours, after which, it starts vanishing from the center of the lip. The shade smudges ever so lightly but that does not impact the pigment of the lip shade.
What I liked about the product:
- Pretty and opulent packaging
- Good for travelling
- Comfortable on lips
- Opaque pay off
- Precise wand application
What I don’t like about the product:
- Might crumble and flake if layered thickly
- Quite pricey
- May fade unevenly
