Smashbox Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Lacquer


It has been my pleasure to wear four of Smashbox's Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Lacquer over the past couple of weeks. The colours I have trialled are Off Duty – which is described as a honey tone but I think that honey is more golden yellow but this is more of a light caramel with a hint of pink. Knockout is bright pink with a hint of red, Firecracker is red with a hint of orange and After Dark is a black plum and as a firm purple lover this is my favourite. This is the Smashbox version of the liquid lipstick. It does not dry to a matte finish – it has a moisturising texture and it keeps the sheen for many hours and as the day progresses you are left with a stain of colour on the lips. The lacquers are very pigmented which is great for me as I much prefer a lipstick to a lipgloss. The texture is very smooth and very lightweight on the lips.

The doe foot applicator (hurrah – not a brush) is flexible but not overly so and does not get overloaded with product. This product does not give the finest line around the lip line, so for the deeper shades you may wish to use a lip liner underneath the lacquer. There are twenty shades in the range so you are bound to find a colour that you love.
