Most Helpful Positive Review bow down
the second you even swatch this lipstick, you realize that all of the other liquid lipsticks you have ever seen or tried are paltry amateurs and you've finally met a professional. when i first swatched bawse and i saw how gorgeous and rich the color was, i thought i died and went to heaven. it is so beautiful and flattering, and the formula is perfect. it doesn't feel like you're wearing any product on your lips at all and it is so comfortable, you have to try it to believe it. this lipstick is straight up undeniable. if you're interested in the holy grail, the only lipstick you will ever need, it is here. it is this. it is EVERYTHING.
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed in you, Smashbox
Super unhappy with this lipstick. Bought Stepping Out and it looks so much lighter on my lips than it does in the tube. Feels heavy and cakey and then settles into every single crack in my lips 😑 Worst part is I have owned it for less than ONE YEAR and it's alreadu crusty and dry in the tube. I have literally used it two times. I paid a lot of money for a cakey lipstick that dries out in about 8 months. I see you lowering quality Smashbox, and I do not appreciate it.

This is my absolute favorite lipstick because the color compliments my skin and it lasts so long! I hate reapplying lipstick, and I never have to with this one.
This is my go to

Love it. Always have. Always will (unless the formulae is changed lol)
My 2nd tube of Bawse
Stylish professional, looking fresh from D.C. Metro
This is my second tube which my first tube dried out after a few years. (Was waiting on a coupon) Haven't worn it under my mask yet (an N95 white tight mask). So once I do that, I will update. I can tell you I had compliments on the color. It stayed on really, really well, at least without a mask. I can't say anything about the other colors so I can't speak to their longevity
Gorgeous Color, Not Drying
Virginia Lady from Virginia
I bought this for my young adult daughter after she tried a sample and raved about it!

I absolutely love it! I have the orange color; I would not have bought an orange but once I got it as a gift I actually love it. I've got very light skin and blue eyes, and if I wear an orange shadow to make my eyes pop this lipstick works very well with it. It contrasts my green shirts and feels very nice on my lips. It's so matte, I didn't expect it to be so matte but it's gotta be one of the most matte lipsticks I've ever owned other than my NUDESTIX lippie. It stays all right, too. The one little thing about it is that the applicator came out sorta chunky. Or, I should say thick. The lipstick wasn't watery at all , like a liquid lip. Instead, it's very pigmented. It's actually nice, though. I do like the pigmenting because it makes it more easy to get a bunch of lipstick instead of having to apply it over and over, so it works out. 10/10 would recommend!
not worth the risk
em from NH
I love the colors and how well it stays on, I have bought several of these. Unfortunately, I've had two dried out on arrival and two more dry out shortly after using once, so it's not worth the risk buying them anymore to me give the price. Better options out there
This is AWESOME.
Sarah V from New Hampshire
I received a sample of this in my Platinum goodie bag and WOW I love this! It dries quickly, very matte, love the nude shade! If you're looking for something that plumps or glosses your lips this is not it BUT if you're going for a very flawless finish that stays on all day then it's so worth it!
Love this color
Gg80 from Boca Raton, FL
I love this berry color. Adds a nice pop when going natural with eye makeup
dried out on arrival
Dani from Arlington
I was looking forward to this lipstick because it's an awesome color and I've loved the smashbox eyeshadow palettes I've purchased. Punked Rock was on sale, so why not? Well, it arrived today and was dried out. So I guess that's why not. I'm extremely disappointed and will be returning it
Can't live without this!!
Angelique from Newport Beach
This product is a staple in my makeup routine! Absolutely love it! You just need to be careful if your eating foods with oils like salad dressing as that can make it start to come off. Just blot with a napkin and reapply to any area that may have lightened or come off and you're good to go for the rest of the day/ evening!
Beautiful color, stays on long
Bren from NJ
I have 2 full size smash box liquid lipsticks, both stay on even after lunch. They have a variety of beautiful colors. They are my favorite, and most often used, lipsticks.
Anja_m from New Mexico
This lipstick and color (Babe Alert) is one of the best long-lasting lipsticks I've encountered. The matte finish doesn't look (or feel) dry or flaky and the color is subtle enough for everyday wear. I don't need to line my lips first - it stays in place.
Bought from store and it's been used!!!!
Alim from Douglasville
Bought throwback Jam and it's been used. There is no product in the container. I will be returning and asking for a manager. This is unacceptable especially in a time during a pandemic due to a deadly contagious virus.
A little tacky
Julia from Philly
I got this in Bag Bang. It is my favorite. It is hard to pair and match though. Such a shocking shade of red. It's also a little tacky and dries out fast. This is my second time buying it because my last one dried up after just a few uses. In this red the formula is a little tacky. Will transfer. But holds up pretty strong to food and drink. I have this lipstick in other shades and the formula is smoother and silkier in those shades. Does not smudge in those shades.
A Red Lip Must

Gg from Ct
Love love love this formula. The pigment is amazing and it wears well. But whyyy does it have to dry out?? Smash box please fix this issue.
Great holiday red!
Bh89 from Charlotte,NC
It's the perfect red for any skin tone! It has a metallic finish which makes it beautiful for Christmas. It lasts throughout the day!
No, I would not buy this brand again
A.L. from Dunwoody, Ga
It is dry and hard to apply.
Rain from Modesto, ca
Has been one of my favorite nude lipstick when it first came out!!!!!!! I purchase this lipstick a million of times. Although It's been a while since I purchase this lipstick and I feel like the formula or shade has changed!!!! I remember it being a nude grey tone. Now it's more of a brown tan nude tone. I'm a little disappointed!!!! Although great lipstick though.
Looks beautiful but
Susieq from Brooklyn, NY
When you first get these it's wonderful and looks like a velvety matte on your lips, but it dries out very fast. You also cannot reapply a layer when it starts to wear off. I had to throw mine out. But in the other hand these have no chance to expire, so I guess it's a good thing.
Liquid lipstick that is comfortable
blue from ny
I really like the consistency of this liquid lipstick. almost feel like you are not wearing anything. I brought the color bang bang thinking it is a true red but it is not. It has a slight orange hint to it and it just doesn't work for my skin tone.
Maneater is a win for the holidays
TJ from San Diego
I got this lipstick in a giftpack a few years ago and it is the perfect satin matte red. my teeth looked bright white.
Returned it the next day
Ranell from Covington, LA
Opened the tube for the first time and it wasn't liquid, looked like paste. Obviously it has no shelf life.
Love this lipstick!
Little Lady from Sacramento area
Perfect neutral with cork lip liner. Stays in place, doesnt smudge under a face mask much... my go to works with everything color.
Gg from Chicago IL
Love it! It's the perfect red lipstick and it lasts all day!
