Smashbox Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer

It's been a while since I tried anything new from Smashbox, I think the last thing was probably the Full Exposure Palette which I'm still absolutely obsessed with, but when I saw of these new Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquers launching, I had a feeling they would be my sort of thing and I couldn't wait to give them a go.

Available in 18 shades (20 in the US), which in itself is pretty incredible, the idea of these Long-Wear Lip Lacquers is that they have been formulated to deliver a high amount of pigmentation along with comfort and longevity. I would say they're more of a gloss in terms of formula, finish and shine, but with the fancy high pigmentation that a lipstick would give. 

With ingredients such as Vitamin E, the product feels comfortable on the lips and is in no way shape or form drying. The high pigment sticks around for a fair while, but once it does break down, it leaves a natural stain on the lips which you would expect from something with so much pigment in it.

I've been using the shades Calypso and Pink Social and I'm sure you can guess, Calypso is probably my favourite of the two. They're not the sort of shades that I'm constantly reaching for at the moment, but once Spring springs, I'm sure they'll be on rotation.

Available to buy now at Smashbox counters, they cost £19 each.

  2. I've been debating on whether or not to give those a try as I'm usually not much of a lip gloss fan. But I think those could be the exception! Everything seems right : packaging, shades, formula, pigmentation. Yep need those now xo
