  • Improves wear of lipstick & prevents feathering
  • Portable tube makes it perfect for on-the-go

        Exactly what it says

        Comments about Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer:

        This product is exactly what it says it is. I love that I can turn my cream lipsticks into a matte finish instantly and be on trend and even make some colors look better. I use one small dot for my top, and another for the bottom and then smack my lips together and it looks sooo good without being dry and flaky. Perfection in a tube

          Comments about Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer:

          This product is worth every penny since it allows me to use all my glossy lipstick I had stopped using and now I can make them matte! The clear gel goes on easy (with your finger) and a very little goes a long way. The best part is it keeps my lipstick from any unwanted spread and it keeps in on my lips much longer. No dryness either. I highly recommend this product and will not be without it!

                    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.
