So I have a love/hate relationship with lip coloring. I was not blessed with any color in my lips (thank goodness my kids got my husband’s lips and not mine), so I love wearing different colors on my lips. However, I have issues with all lip colors. Lip gloss – very sticky and comes off easily; Lip Stick – gets on everything; Lip stain – dries out fast. Most of the time, I use lip stains because it lasts and I can kiss my husband without any transferring of color.
So when I got the chance to review Smashboxes new long-last lipstick for free, I was intrigued. A long lasting lipstick sounded like a great option for me.
I wore the new color to attend a performance of Disney’s Aladdin at the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center.
With my pale skin, it’s always hard to find a red lip color that looks good on me, so I loved this red shade on me. However, the lipstick becomes dry very quickly and became quick cakey, making my lips look, and feel, flakey. I wouldn’t have minded so much, as I’m used to that from lip stains. BUT, unlike lip stains, this lip stick still got on everything.
So while I liked the color, I don’t like the feel of the lipstick on and I don’t like that it gets on everything. I don’t think I’ll be wearing this again – I’ll stick to lip stains.
