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 lipstick didn't stay on at all for me.
Love the colors
Neek from New Orleans,La
I own 10 of smashbox "Always on liquid lipsticks". I love the colors and how they feel on you lips. This matte lipstick feels smooth on my lips BUTTTTTT it diappoints me to say THIS LIPSTICK SUCKS!!!!! ALL 10 are dried out and CAN'T be used. I've brought all of these within the past 8mons. When I purchased them they all were wet inside the tube now they are HARD and DRY!
The bold and the beautiful
Keak from Santa Clarita , Ca.
I bought this product in the throwback jam color. It is so pretty!! It glides on and honestly it feels like no liquid lip I've ever used. It's not dry, it's not sticky. It's bold, it's beautiful , it's my go to!!
NMO from North Carolina
I bought this liquid to matte in color some nerve after having my makeup done in a high end department store! Love love love it... I layer with a light pink balm so it's never too dry. Color stats all day! When is some nerve coming back in stock?!
Addicted to this lipstick, its perfect.
Monsoon from New York
Long lasting, I put this on and it stays for 12 plus hours, even if I eat and drink, this is the only brand I have ever found that remotely can even say they are long lasting. I'm not sure why there are bad reviews on here, I'm guessing not everyones lips are the same obviously, so for me this is perfect. I pray this never stops being made! I did have one dry up on me but other wise, Birch box got me started on a sample and I have bought probably 30 of these! Thank you!

I absolutely love this liquid lipstick. The ManEater color is what I have. It is a gorgeous color with true metallic sheen - not glitter. Everyone asks me where I get my lipstick from. I just wish it wasn't so expensive for such a small tube.
Favorite formula but dries out QUICK
Rhubarb from Portland, OR
This liquid lip is seriously my favorite formula because it actually stays and is really comfortable but it dries up SOOO quickly in the tube. I've bought the Stepping Out shade 3 times already and I've never even gotten to use the whole tube. It dries up within a couple of months. I've never had this issue with any other liquid lip I own.
DP from Minnesota
I bought this on sale and was shocked that it was marked down so low. After receiving it I know why. It was already drying out when I took it out of its packaging. I am very disappointed in smash box.
Lipstick dries too fast
Nan from Lima
I like the colors and how the lipstick stays on your lips long however if you do not use it, it will dry out after two or three uses.. not a very good product if you do not use it eceryday
Dried after a couple uses
Margaux from Victorville, CA
I'm glad I'm not the only one that had this problem. I went to use my Always On Lipstick tonight and it was completely dry! I've only used it MAYBE 3 times. If you know you go through lipstick every couple months, and only use one or two- this one is for you. For me, I mix it up with all of the wonderful products I have. I can't be tied down like this.
I love this product and keep purchasing it.
Deena from Georgia
I love this product. I use it over my lipstick. It helps tone down the color, give it a shimmer, and helps it stay on for hours. It is great!
Completely Dried Up & Unusable > 1 Year Old
AlwaysTheRed from Seattle, WA
Love the color Bawse. Well, I did about six months ago when I received this lipstick in the mail. Went to bust it out for its gorgeous brightness for Valentine's Day weekend, and... couldn't get any out. It was all dried up, and I, unfortunately, had only used it once before in the past six months. So. If you want a bold gorgeous lip, but just one time... this is the lipstick for you.
Geri from Stockton, CA
The product went on smoothly and did not transfer on glassware. For the price I paid, I expected the product to stay on my lips for most of the day which I have experienced with lesser priced lipsticks.
Glimmer all day
Al the lipstick lover from Stevens Point, WI
I love this lipstick, although I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because it fades quicker than other brands that I use.
Michae from Albany, NY
This is my all time favorite lip color. I own it in Vino Noir and a pink color that does not seem to be sold at Ulta anymore. I wore the pink shade at my wedding in 2018. The Vino Noir Shade is new and I'm loving it so far. I chose it because I had a lipstick in a similar color that I loved that wore off too easily. I chose this as a replacement and it lasts through meals, coffee, and other daily activities! Also, the color is amazing.
The one issue that I have noticed is that the first shade I purchased did, in fact, dry out after owning it for over a year. I was able to revive it with some olive oil, and now other than taking some extra time to dry down, it's fully functional. My advice would be to be careful how you store this as it is sensitive to dry, hot environments.
Sierra from Wichita
I just received my liquid lipstick in the shade liquid fire which is a warm rust shade. Gorgeous on the models and love that they show the shade on different skin tones, but when I received mine I opened the box and the shade is way more pink toned than red. I tried it on anyway just to see and it's not at all the same color or shade as it displays in the photos. Very upsetting too considering how nice the lipstick goes on and stays. But this just isn't my color and not at all what it showed in the display photos.

Would not buy again
Kokofemme from Atlanta, Ga
I thought it was just me until I read other reviews. "Make it Reign" was also extremely dry and the bottle was not full of product. It dried out after only a few uses! I was going to order it again to compare but after reading other reviews....no ma'am, I'll pass! Such a shame because "Make it Reign" was such a pretty color!
Do not buy
Abby from New York
It dried up. it's just not worth the money guys. colourpop and elf does a better job and that's the truth.
Not worth the money I paid

This is a true matte lipstick that stays on and wears well.
Comes off easily

I bought this last week after seeing it advertised. Found a stunning color. After application, I noticed the color started bleeding into fine lines with in a few minutes. Within an hour of shopping, the color was gone.
I hate it
Martini Bombshell from San Diego, CA
Crusty, thick, and I feel like it dried out really quickly. Never buying again.
Love this product And would buy it again.

I do put some lip gloss over it for some added shine.
cvandriest1 from Ashland, Ohio
I love bold color of these liquid lips! A little dry like most so I'd reccomend really moisturising beforehand. It went on very smooth and did not cling to any dry patches. I love the metallic shade Maneater. Stayed on all night through dinner. Did not wear down or transfer! Great product!
