Give your lipstick a matte makeover - instantly! Developed on set to minimize the number of lipsticks Smashbox's pro artists carry in their kits, this gel transforms any cream lipstick into a velvety matte finish that's never chalky.

Why it's unique:

Ultimate beauty hack alert: One take-anywhere tube that doubles your lip color collection.

From runways to red carpets, matte lips are having a moment. Get in on the trend with Insta-Matte. Not only does Smashbox's wonder gel instantly transform your cream lipstick into a dramatic matte look, but it also keeps shades true - so you get two ways to wear your favorite nude or red, minus the mess of your old DIY mattify methods. (Loose powder on your lips? No thanks.)

Benefits:

  • Transforms any cream lipstick into a matte finish and doubles your lipstick wardrobe
  • Improves wear of lipstick & prevents feathering
  • Portable tube makes it perfect for on-the-go


"Smashbox developed this genius gel to double my lipstick collection on set. I'll never have to carry an entire collection of mattes and creams in my kit again." - Lori Taylor Davis, Global Pro Lead Artist

Formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates, oil, fragrance & talc.

          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.

                        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.
