Most Helpful Positive Review Blast Off/Bright Pink Coral but.....more red
I choose Blast Off. I purchased it in store but, was in a hurry when I selected the color. I was looking for a true pinky coral and went by the name. Its more red. Its a beautiful color and nice on me but, I'm looking to exchange it for the color I was originally looking for.
The wand holds a good amount of formula to swipe across my bottom lip AND too lip, without having to reload. This formula is amazing!! Feels silky going on and has minimal drying effect but not until much later in the evening. I actually didn't feel like my lips were dry, ( the uncomfortable kind of dry matt lipsticks can give) until after a late dinner. The color faded on the inside of my lips leaving a slight outter ring but, this sounds worse than it actually looked. The wear wasn't bad considering I had been wearing it for about 7 hours without having to reapply. I drank coffee and sipped water throughout the day and very minimal color tranfer to cup. I love this formula and now know why women love SMASHBOX. This was my first SB purchase ever.
The wand holds a great amount of formula and when you press it against your lips, the wand bends slighly to curve along with the curves on your lips. I love that about the felt tip and wand. Never felt that with other gloss wands. Nice touch for a flawless, highly pigmented application. I'll be purchasing more colors.
Most Helpful Critical Review Great color, love the packaging, dont love the application
I purchased the SMASHBOX Always On Matte Liquid lipstick and the SMASHBOX Be Legendary Matte lipstick at the same time.
I tried the Always first, because it was a bright red that I've never worn before. I love the way the color looks with my skin tone, but the application leaves a bit to be desired. Because its liquid it sinks into the crevices of my lips and wears off quickly unless you put on several layers of it. When you put on several layers you can feel it on your lips. And, as it wears off, it gets kind of dry looking and feeling. It's also kind of quick to wear off, by that may be because I only put on one layer. I would recommend the other SMASHBOX product that I bought that day.
The Be Legendary one was amazing! It feels great on my lips. Once its on, you forget that its there. Its completely matte, but impactful. I wore it all day, ate twice, drank water and coffee and only reapplied once. When I reapplied 6 hrs later, it was fading a bit, but it didn't look bad or clumpy. I love how moisturizing and evenly the lipstick applies. It gets more intense the more layers I apply, but never looks overdone. I definitely prefer the Be Legendary Matte over the Always On Matte Liquid. In fact, I'm going to Ulta tonight to get the bright red color in the Be Legendary brand!

I was turned onto this product by the sales person and glad she was knowledgeable on color, and ingredients. Really pleased with my purchase

Contrary to its name, it's not as thrilling getting it on. Albeit, it is a very pretty color, a perfect summer color. The formula however is terrible. It's goes on patchy and leaves streaks. I've tried putting oil on before applying, primer, concealer... nothing works. I wouldn't recommend this. If you're looking for a color replica, then try Tarte's Color Splash Lipstick in Sundaze.

Love the color, great formula. Doesn't flake or crack. Love this brand. Wish they had more sales. Great products.
Amazing color, no stay power
Red Gator from Florida
I love the colors (Baja Bound and Vino Noir). The formula itself is not very good, it wears down fast and comes off very easily, drinking just water alone causes the breakdown to accelerate. The too faced melted matte is a much better formula, but I love the colors in this that I have.
Applies beautifully, good coverage
Kat from Southwest Michigan
I love these lip colors, but this one in particular is beautiful. This lip color is a blue based red, which makes the color deep and perfect for cool skin tones. It has great coverage that lasts for hours. This formula is comfortable, it dried down to matte but does not completely dry out your lips.
Transfers and Not Long Wearing
Alicia from SOUTHWARK
Got two colors, was excited. Colors were pretty on me and nice applicator, but it is does not dry. It transfers on straws and disappears in the middle after eating and drinking and looks terrible and after. I've had a lot of other matte drying liquid lipsticks that are much better than this. It also rubs off on your teeth too. Sigh.
The best choice
Palu from Ca
Very sexy Matt red color, I bought it as a gift for a friend and we both loved it. This is the kind of lipstick which every girl must have.
Beautiful summer color!
Mommylovesmakeup from Cincinnati Ohio
This is my third color of liquid lipstick from Smashbox. I love the idea that the color will stay on my lips for a looooong time but my lips still feel like there's life in them. So many times when I wear a liquid lip, my lips feel so dry and gross. Not with these! Formula is top notch!
I just love this lip color!
Linkay from Glendora, Ca
This is my new favorite. It's a great color for my skin tone, and it stays on even when I eat. It doesn't dry out my lips as much as other long wear lip colors.
Does not stay put
Beauty addict from Va
I love the color but it does not stay in place. after a few hours, it smears and my lip line is all over the place. I thought smashbox had better products than this for that price tag! Don't waste your $$$ and just get morphe or Jeffree Star
This is my 3rd time buying this color
Lynda from Texas
I love love this product, I Do NOT feel it drying on my lips it's very moisturizing and feels awesome, even though it's a matte finish.
My new found lipstick
Isabell from Minneapolis MN
First time using this lipstick. I wore it to dinner under my mask. When I pulled it off at the table, it had not rubbed off.
Makeup Junkie from VA
I bought the shade Dream Huge, and I love it! It is a great shade for my skin tone. Easy application. Doesn't transfer too much. I put a lighter shade of another matte lip velour in the center of my lips for extra poutage. Good product. Pigment is great. Does come off easy for the price tag, though. I will probably buy another brand in the future that stays out all day (Jeffree Star)
Great neutral color!

It's the most long lasting lip color I've tried.

I was so excited for this product as I love the purple color I got but when I recieved it, the lipstick seemed old or used. like it was a display at a store or something. super sad :(
soft and smooth
cristy from Texas
other matte lipsticks really dry my lips and because I have full lips, it's very noticeable when they do. I tried this one and as soon as I applied it, I loved it. it's so smooth and doesnt feel dry.
M.Reyes from Charleston, SC
I was hesitant to order this online, but I'm glad I did. I really love the color. It feels nice on the lips, not drying at all. Gives you some color without looking too obvious.
sr19 from winston-salem, nc
I loved the color of the lipstick, but the tube they sent seemed old. The liquid was dried up and cakey. It flaked off of my lips and didn't lay flat because it was so gummy from getting caked up on the brush. I recieved 3 othercllors in my order and neither of them had the same issues as this one.
Color has changed
Meg from Cleveland
I bought the full size of the color Always On after receiving a small as a sample. Admittedly, I got the sample maybe a year ago or longer. (Can color change that much while stored properly?) The full size is much darker than the small. I ordered online due to the pandemic. When I took the product out, it was even noticeably darker. I would not have purchased this color in person but I love the coverage and feel of the product.
BEST LIQUID LIPSTICK EVER!
Koko Anne from ELK Grove, Ca
This liquid lipstick last 8+ hours leaving full color and coverage all day. My 1st tube always left my lips feeling dry so I mentioned it to an Ulta employee. They suggested using a lip balm/ chapstick before applying this. I'm now on my 2nd tube and use chapstick before and sometimes after, mid-day and it stays on all day. This is the BEST and LONGEST LASTING lipstick I have ever used!
Rosita from Ny
I'm very happy with this purchase, beautiful color and stay for hours.
Not What Expected
