Most Helpful Positive Review Above My Expectations
I love a lipstick that proves to be exactly what it says it is/does and not present the opposite. This Smashbox Cream to Matte lipstick has went above and beyond my expectations. I was afraid it would leave my lips dry and peeling. I was also concerned about it bleeding outside my lip lines. When I applied my lipstick I outlined my lips then dabbed the centers gently and blotted my lips together for a full coverage look. The precision tip created in the stick allowed me to achieve a desired look especially along the upper lip. It dried fairly quick. It didn't leave my lips feeling dry because it has a primer oil in the base of the lipstick. It's all long lasting and you can achieve 12 hours of this lipstick on without smudging, bleeding, feathering, cracking, or leaving your lips dry and wanting to peel! It's also waterproof which I like if I'm out on a rainy day. I was concerned about it caking around my "already" chapped lips but it never done so. It gave me full coverage! It has a deep pigment so the color you see is the color and tone you get. Being a mom and wife, we know how important it is to not transfer those beautiful lips onto your children's cheeks or husbands! I even tested it on the sleeve of my white t shirt! No transfer took place. That being said, it came off nicely with a good makeup remover or you can easily remove with gentle soap and lukewarm water. This is my go-to for a good lip and look from now on! Definitely recommend! I wore mine out running errands in town and my lips stayed looking bold and fresh all day!
Most Helpful Critical Review Pretty color that lasts but gets on everything
Today, I wore this lipstick on a date with my husband to see a Broadway show that was performing in my city. We got dressed up and this lip color went perfectly with my outfit, especially with the matte finish. I also loved that it didn't taste like it had an spf in it, like other spf lip protectors do. It was great that the color lasted for the six hours that we were out. However, I did not like that it got in anything my lips touched - my drink, my husband and my baby we're all wearing my lip color. Yet, when I went to wash off the color, it wouldn't come off. It took a bit of scrubbing before it was all gone. Additionally, I didn't like the feel of the lipstick on my lips. It felt dried on and not very smooth. I don't think I'll be wearing this, again, any time soon.

This stayed on all day & l love it
I would not buy this color again
Cindy from Philadelphia
Not the color I thought it was looks very orange on and does not go well with really olive skin not crazy about it
K from Ohio
This stuff goes on easy and creamy but after a minute it's the perfect matte. I'm obsessed with matte lipstick, i hate any sort of sticky gloss or creaminess that could slide off or trap my windy hair etc. to the touch, this lipstick feels like a dry satin finish, I love it. I can't get enough. And cruelty free is always important, so yay smashbox
Would definitely buy this brand again.
Rene from Illinois

Honestly amazed how much I love it and how long it lasted
Better than liquid lipstick
WhiskerPop from South Carolina
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I got this in BESOS. it's a beautiful color. This is the best non-transfer lipstick I've EVER tried and I've tried many different brands, including lots of prestigious ones. It's better than liquid lipstick I've used. It doesn't transfer, no cracking or flaking AND LONG LASTING.
Beautiful color, but you need a lip liner
Bre from Washington
So this is a wonderful lipstick (I have Hoops On). The color on the packaging looks more purple than red. But it's still nice. I honestly think you need a liner for this lipstick. The tip really doesn't do a whole ton for lining in my opinion. But I did get it on!
Perfect deep violet shade
GiveMeGorgeous from Pheonix, AZ
If you are looking for a deep purple lip without it looking goth, this color is just right. It's a lovely dark, matte violet without it looking black, possibly a bit on the burgundy side. Very pretty.

I would buy more if I had more color options
This is the best
victoriacb176 from Central, SC
This is the best lipstick I've ever used. I love the texture, and the color lasts forever. It doesn't crack or smear over time; I've even jumped in the pool and come out with my lipstick still perfect. Even the packaging is cute. Highly recommend
These lipsticks do NOT
melissac325 from N Hollywood, CA
These lipsticks do NOT lie. They stay on for hours! They're very comfortable to wear, not drying, and definitely give that color pay off!
I think the pigmentation
heygorjess from W Haverstraw, NY
I think the pigmentation is good but they felt drier than a liquid lipstick. They also apply patchy but can be layered.
Love this smooth, long-lasting matte lipstick!
Cat from AZ
I use it daily.
Great pigment, very comfortable
maryssat from Wildomar, CA
Great pigment, very comfortable on the lips, not too drying. Will be repurchasing & suggest it to my friends who use lipstick
I want this is every color!
Mak from Dalton
Loved the matte finish
Alex from Seattle
I bought the shade Promoted on a whim and I think this is going to be my fave lipstick formula. It glides on super smooth and dries to a matte finish
Literally ALWAYS on!
Parker from Tulsa, OK
After lunch I was worried because I forgot I had lipstick on and went to reapply but I realized I didn't need to. My lipstick is still perfect, not dry, still creamy but feels like it's light on my lips. This is crazy for someone like me who has usually dry lips.
I wish I had the ability to post a picture from my work computer of my white water bottle I've been drinking from all day because there's absolutely no lipstick residue!
Reallllllly wanted to love
emilyp21 from Atlanta, GA
Reallllllly wanted to love this. It went on smoothly and the color was beautiful, but after just an hour, it felt chalky on my lips. I tried to reapply and it felt like I was just putting layers of flaky lipstick on.
Matte lipsticks always worry
keziao from Rolling Mdws, IL
Matte lipsticks always worry me because I find that most accentuate my dryness and have a tightening feel to them. This lipstick however glides on smoothly and has a comfortable finish. I love the shades and it has easily become one of my everyday choices.
dianei60a3 from Ogden , UT
It was so matte like I like it. It didn't move and it didn't crumble like other mattes I've tried
i'm obsessssssed with this.
cynthial8e72 from Allendale, NJ
i'm obsessssssed with this. my favorite thing i have ever received in a voxbox. so so good and so comfy on the lips, I don't even notice it there.
madelineb2 from Gloversville, NY
Absolutely loved the color - it complimented my light skin tone very well and I also really loved the consistency. It didn't seem to dry my lips out and crack the lipstick like some other products do. The packaging was very sleek. I highly recommend the lipstick.
