            LOVE this Product. It definitely gave me the matte look I was going for and helped to make my lipstick last through the night. I reapplied once after eating, but that's it.

            Comments about Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer:

            Gives a nice velvety matte. I prefer a dry matte but this does what it says it does. Just not sure it's exactly what I want for the price...might as well just buy an actual matte lipstick.

                  I really like how matte lipstick looks but most of the products I like are very drying. I don't like glossy lipsticks because it makes me feel like a teenager (ha!). Not only did the Insta-Matte make my glossy lipstick look matte, but my it feels really rich and creamy on my lips. I absolutely love this product and will re-stock for a lifetime. I think I might just stop using my dry matte lipsticks and use this over creamy lipsticks.

                  Works perfectly! And stays a matte finish. Very happy with it and I was skeptical.

                      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.
