just does NOT work!

Comments about Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer:

I have no idea how this thing got 4 stars or an allure award. it's terrible. you go to tap it on your lips very gently with your finger onto cream lipstick like the directions say, and it just smears away all your lipstick color and it does NOT turn it matte at all. it just lightens and goops up your lipstick. i hate this product. good concept/idea but doesn't work unfortunately.

    I first found this product from my Ipsy subscription. I have to say, I'm in love. The Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer really does do miracles, (both for lipsticks and when you decide to go "all natural"). The first time I used this product, i just applied it to my natural lips. It made for the perfect matte nude look. Overall, I am very impressed!

            I love the look of matte lips but that can be very drying to lips. This product makes regular lipstick look matte instantly, and once its on, it almost feels like you are wearing chapstick! If you are looking for a matte lip you will Love this.

                    A:

                    Hi There! The Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer will make your lipstick last longer, but will not make it transfer proof. I suggest trying it with one of our Be Legendary Lipsticks in cream or matte. I think you'll be surprised to to see how long they wear.
