Awkward applicator but lovely teal color

    Comments about Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick:

    I bought Teal With It. The color's a great mermaid teal. Ulta's photo is just a hair darker than the actual color. In person, what you see in the tube is what you get on your lips. I'm wearing it right now over a primer and, so far, it hasn't bled or feathered.

    Applying this lipstick is kinda awkward. The formula's clumpy. You'll need to smooth out some hard gloopy lines along your lip edges and probably some clumps on your lips. The applicator takes some getting used to. The width deposits a lot of color, which is nice but also makes the color a bit harder to control. I have a hard time getting a precise outline with this applicator, so I'll definitely need to use a liner next time. And the wand's too short for such a big rectangular cap: while I did my top lip, the cap nicked my bottom lip a couple times. I recommend completely finishing your top lip before starting on your bottom lip.

    Once it's on, it feels good—not very drying at all—over a primer. (I usually test without a primer at first, but not this time.) It dried down in about 20 seconds to a nice matte finish. It's barely transferred to my coffee mug within the last 2 hours. It's not smudge proof, though: I can easily smudge a bit of it off with a finger.

    Not sure I'll buy another color, or even buy this one again (even though I love the teal). The wand/applicator + clumpy formula = not really worth the money.

    Comments about Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick:

    I own so many lip glosses, balms, tints, kits...you name it. Somehow I got this as a freebie? Oh! I bought Smashbox BB cream. This was thrown in. And I was so thrill with how much I loved it. Can't even recall the color. It was a matte red. My friend who is a complete different skin tone tried it and it looked great on her too! Lasts a long time but it does come off eventually. I mean, it's not a tattoo. Lol

        Comments about Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick:

        I bought this online, in the shade "throwback jam" it was decribed as a red tone....negative! This is a warm wine/berry color that honestly looks not even close to anything in an actual red catagory. But ok I digress, let's give this a try...I open the tube and idk of it got to hot in transit or what happened but it was so thick and goopy that it actually left a string from the aplicator to the tube(like cheese does when it melts) and yet again I digress, I apply it to my lips and it really is messy...you must use a lip liner with a shade like this...once I achieved an even aplication and blotted it was a nice wearing product. I was in need of a red however and the description was missleading and I think the formula is a little off, unless I received a bad one, that is totally possible.

        Comments about Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick:

        I have been looking for a long lasting black matte liquid lip. While a bit pricey for the size of the product, this is a non drying liquid matte. It doesn't transfer a lot but I do recommend removal before eating as it will transfer to utensils and napkins fairly easily.

          I bought this to use for costumes, but it works so beautifully, lasts so long (even after eating greasy food like pizza), and goes so well with my skin tone/complexion that I'll definitely be using it on a more regular basis. I decided I had to get more of it, but in a red for date nights.

          • Q:

            I recently bought Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Disorderly, and I love it - but I'm the kind of person who applies lip balm constantly throughout the day no matter what, so I almost never wear lipstick. My go-to has been CoverGirl Outlast, because I can use the topcoat as a lip balm, and I'd assumed that I would be able to do the same with this one. Unfortunately it broke the lipstick down completely and immediately and I had to remove it. Is there anything compatible with this that will act like a lip balm (that I can apply repeatedly throughout the day)? Moisturizing isn't the problem; this is a sensory thing, my lips are in great condition, I just need them to feel a certain way at all times.

              The always On Matte Liquid Lipsticks are designed to look matte when applied. Unfortunately we don't carry a gloss, or balm that will allow you to transform the texture of these lip colors.

            I love this kind of product. I have tried every one as it hits the market! STAY 24 COLOR & most recently ChateauLabiotte Wine Lip tint made my lips peel. This is obviously an allergic reaction to something in these products. I wonder if ALL "permanent" type products are the same? Would like to purchase yours if you say the chemical contents are different thus may not cause the reaction.
