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

                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.

                      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.
