Liquid lipsticks are hugely popular right now. I typically find them very drying, and generally don’t like long wear lip products for that reason. The Smashbox Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Lacquers ($24 for the full size tube) are a gloss/stain hybrid and not your traditional liquid lipstick.
This lip color’s propriety blend of vibrant staining pigments, glossy-finish pearls, and conditioning vitamin E lets lips pop with vibrant, true color that lasts. The glossy-finish pearls and conditioning vitamin E achieve a velvety, lacquer-like finish that stays put without feeling tacky or drying. Infused with maximum staining pigments, this formula stretches saturated, long-wearing lip color to the limit, leaving a comfortable and non-drying, stay-put finish.
I absolutely LOVE this formula. It is so glossy, and absolutely gorgeous on the lips! Plus, it is NOT drying at all, and really is long-lasting. Actually, the first time I wore it, I put it on around 4 in the afternoon. The next morning when I woke up, I noticed that there was still a stain on my lips from it, so the color lasted for around 15 hours.
Another perk is that this gloss isn’t sticky and it is very lightweight.
Have you tried this formula before, and do you like it? This formula seems like it would vary depending on color choice. There are currently 3 shades on sale at Sephora for $15 and I am thinking of getting one. 🙂
