The recent fall collection from Smashbox included a gorgeous palette as well as two lipsticks, I’m still lusting over the palette which is Fall perfection, but today I have a shade that is outside my comfort zone but so amazing, the Smashbox Cherry Smoke Be Legendary Bing Lipstick*.
Smashbox Cherry Smoke Be Legendary Bing Lipstick features the sleek Smashbox packaging with the collection’s design on it, and it is really the perfect cherry red matte shade. Application is flawless, although you’re probably better off with a lip brush or liner for perfect, crisp lines, I just applied straight from the tube in this photo and it still worked gorgeously. It also lasted most of the day, even through eating, leaving behind a stain.
One of the things that always scares me about matte lipsticks is how dry they tend to be, but honestly, Smashbox Cherry Smoke Be Legendary Bing Lipstick is not like that! It is really creamy with fantastic, even, opaque coverage. Although I wouldn’t say it was moisturizing, it’s definitely not drying either. Although I’d always recommend a lip scrub before using a matte lip product, my lips still aren’t perfect but they look that way while I’m wearing this shade!
I honestly feel like I would be happy tossing all the other red lipsticks I never wear and just sticking with Smashbox Cherry Smoke Be Legendary Bing Lipstick. This is my first time trying a Smashbox lipstick but I am incredibly impressed–I mean, look at it!
