    Comments about Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer:

    I love, love, love this product. I often find lipsticks and cringe when I see they're glossy versus matte, but this has sloved that issue for me. Lip Gloss is a little to thick to pair with this, but gloss lipsticks truly turn matte with this product. LOVE THIS.

        Comments about Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer:

        I got this sample from one of my monthly subscription services, and it is amazing! Works just as intended, and I'm not sure there are even other products like it. I highly recommend it if you're looking to be able to give all your lip colors the matte finish. Smashbox is consistent with the quality of their products, in my experience.

          I love a matte lip, but I can't help but buy a beautiful color. This allows all of my colors to become matte. I am in love!

          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!

                    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.
