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.
Reviewed by 1473 customers 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.

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!
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.
