Smashbox Be Legendary Magenta Matte Lipstick

Since it’s Friday, I couldn’t think of anything better than sharing one of my newest and brightest finds – the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Matte Vibrant Magenta, a brand new colour for Summer 2015.

With a special edition decorated tube by Donald Robertson, Magenta is definitely one of the most show-stopping shades I own!

The lipstick itself comes packaged in a chic black case, which feels almost rubberised, so thankfully I don’t have to keep wiping fingerprints off of it!

I am absolutely obsessed with the shade – a stunning blue toned, almost neon pink which is perfect for making a statement! Since I don’t wear attention-grabbing colours too much, I like to pair the lipstick with a subtle, naturally bronzed look. Since the lipstick is matte, it’s also super important to prep your lips before application. I use a sugar scrub followed by a rich lip balm to make sure my lips feel hydrated and there isn’t any dry skin for the colour to cling to.

The formulation of the lipstick is impressive – especially for a shade that’s both so pigmented and matte! I can apply straight from the tube, and the colour goes on perfectly. Since the lipstick has a matte finish, it feels more sophisticated that Barbie, and the wear time is really impressive. I easily got 4 hours of wear before I needed to think about touching up, and even then, my lips still had a pink stain – I just wanted to refresh the brightness. Since the formula is matte, it doesn’t feel balmy to use, but I just made sure to always apply a layer of balm underneath to counteract any dryness.

As you can tell, I’m pretty much obsessed with the shade, and will definitely be reaching for it pretty regularly when I’ve got a tan!
