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.

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!
Great formula and colors, but dries out and becomes unusable
Looking for a new red from Stl
I love a lot about this lipstick. So much so that I bought it in almost all the colors. Which was not cheap - but it stays on unlike anything I had tried before, and has fantastic colors (Bawse is the PERFECT shade of red), so I figured it was worth it.
Fast forward a couple months and I go to reach for my fav tube of red, and it's completely dried out. Trash. Only used maybe 4-5 times. And then I checked my others and they're the same way. These have been closed properly and stored appropriately.
A $24 lipstick should have packaging that keeps it viable longer than 6 months.
I had turned others on to this lipstick, so reached out to them and they have experienced the same.
My options now are to buy Inglot Duraline and try to salvage them, or pitch them. I won't be repurchasing, and I am actively looking for a red I like as much that will be useable for more than a few months.
Ulta started carrying KVD and they may have an even better formula, so fingers crossed on the colors!
Best liquid lip
Beth from Orlando
This is the only liquid lipstick formula i enjoy. It's matte and long lasting but not nearly as dry as other ones I've tried. The shade Out Loud is my favorite lip color of all time.
Not my favorite matte lipstick
Michelle from Saint Louis, MO
I love the color of this lipstick. I used it for my Halloween costume and it worked great with the color scheme. But it seemed very dry when applying it. Some spots on my lips were darker than others because of how fast it dried. It also did nit stay on well with drinking and eating. For the price I was slightly disappointed.
Yes, I would buy this product again.
Momlinda from Buffalo, NY
I was looking for a lipstick that did not smear on my mask, this did the trick.
Tee from Garland, to
So moisturizing and never flakes.
Love this formula and applicator
Kristin P from Buffalo, NY
I got this lipstick as a sample once and after that ran out I had to get a full size. I've always been weary of matte lipstick because of the potential of a dry looking lip or it coming off easily. Once I put this lipstick on, it stays all night, no touch ups needed even after drinking out of a glass. The pointed applicator is amazing for getting a tight line on my lip line.
Stays on for a long time !
Dawn the Girl from Eugene Oregon
I have missed wearing lipstick since having to wear masks during Covid. I decided to try this since it was recommended by an Ulta employee. I like that it doesn't smudge on my mask and when I take my mask off, my lips look good
Amy from Milwaukee, WI
I got Disorderly (deep brick red) and I love it. Beautiful fall color.
Fave lip color/product ever!
Belize Gyal from Not in Belize, USA
Perfect matte finish. Perfect color for my skin tone, hint of color, polished natural look
Never will buy again
Beth from Jackson Michigan
This does not stay on well and a lipgloss cannot be worn with it so it should have been stated that you can't wear lipgloss with it!
This is getting returned. Not as advertised.
Lu from Spokane
Not as advertised. Doesn't last, application is dry and doesn't go on smoothly. May be outdated and wasn't removed from the shelf.
No would not buy this. I had to return it didn't look right
Yoly from Texas
It was a good price. I purchased for my girls they didnt like the color and it was really hard to take off. They still had some on their lips the next day.
Melanie C from Texas
Has the best consistency and texture for a liquid lipstick that I've ever used.
Lady_J829 from Sherman
These lipsticks are dried out and causes flakeiness.
AMANDA from LONG BEACH
These lipsticks are beautiful in color but poor in quality. They are dried out. I had to return two tunes and the ones that I decided to keep and wear, dried out within 45 minutes of application, giving me a crusty/peeling look.
Great staying power/color, but not good for olive tones
HG1999 from Los Angeles
I ordered this color online (since it was not available in store and was unable to swatch it in store). It has great staying power, but since I'm have yellow undertones, this looked like I had concealer on my lips. Sadly, I exchanged for something else.
Smashbox Matte lipsticks are life
Elmer27 from Santa Maria
I like how great the applicator wand is and the drying time for the matte lipstick is great. The formula is long lasting.
Great Matte Lipstick
Nal from San Gabriel Valley
Stays on! Can still smear a bitime, at times.
Great color and wearability
Dva from Austin, TX
I was turned onto this product by the sales person and glad she was knowledgeable on color, and ingredients. Really pleased with my purchase
ashley from Brooklyn, NY
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.
Lipstick Lover from California
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.
