Smashbox #AlwaysOn Matte Liquid Lipstick


I am totes a lipstick kinda girl. For me, if I have a unique pair of sunnies on and a bright lip, I honestly feel like I am ready to take over the world. With the hot conditions that we face daily, no one has time for a full face of make-up so I stick to those two essentials.

I was recently gifted the Smashbox #AlwaysOn matte liquid lipstick, what’s so special about it compared to the 100s of other liquid lipsticks on the market? Well it stays on.. For like, forever! Kidding, for a good 8 hours you can relax knowing that your lips don’t need a touch up. The advanced Polymer technology allows for a suede-soft and long-lasting finish. Trust me, it staaaays on, you need to use oil based make-up remover for this budge-proof, non-feathering, water-resistant beauty treat.

This matte liquid lippy is infused with Smashbox  Primer Oil complex to keep it comfortable, so you don’t have that super dry feeling that most matte lipsticks cause. Perfected on-set in L.A. at the Smashbox photo studio and on sale in South Africa at Edgar’s. Foschini and Woolworths stores, this featherweight lippy is available in  20 popping’ shades.  My fav at the moment, as seen in the photo below, is the Pink Neutral .

What do you guys think?

    The most frustrating thing with matte lipsticks, is that the texture deteriorates and starts flaking.
    Keen to give this one a try. I think the nude you chose convinced me to give it a go. Ta xx

      I have found that this matte lippy doesn’t flake but the colour does fade with time, especially after eating or drinking which is inevitable.
      Try it out and let me know what you think?
