Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick – Magenta Matte*

Recently, like most people, I’ve loving a matte lip, it feels fun to wear, and makes a change from my usual glosses. It feels a little more dressed up to wear, and I’m just in love with Smashbox’s Be Legendary Matte Formula.

Packaged in Smashbox’s signature slick black bullet, Magenta Matte is the most beautiful, perfect pink which feels so right for the upcoming long Easter weekend! It’s a real show-stopping Barbie pink, which I have absolutely fallen in love with!

Before applying, I like to prep my lips with a favourite scrub (this one) and balm (Sisley, review to come) so that the colour applies smoothly and evenly. The Be Legendary lipstick formula is the stuff of dreams! Unlike a lot of matte lipsticks, Smashbox’s offering is silky soft, and doesn’t pull or tug on the lips.

For a soft, diffused look, I apply the lipstick with my fingers, dabbing the colour into the centre of my lips, and blending out. For a more vibrant feel, I apply straight from the bullet, using a lip brush to clean everything up. The colour payoff from the lipstick is incredible, and the longevity you get is really wonderful. After applying, I easily get 4-5 hours of wear before I feel the need to touch up, and even when it’s fading a little, it leaves lips with the prettiest pink stain which looks perfect under a little balm.

Smashbox Be Legendary Magenta Matte is priced at £17.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
