Comments about Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick:

I absolutely love the color. I've wanted this product ever since it came out and I finally broke down and got it.. I have the shade (chill zone) and I think it looks so cool. And it survived Warped Tour, so that's great!! I was a little drying but mainly comfortable throughout the day. I would recommend this product.. and I'll probably be purchasing more shades soon.

      Comments about Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick:

      My coworker always wore Bawse and I was obsessed, so I purchased Miss Devious for the holiday season. It's a brilliant dark red but not for beginners to liquid lips since it's unforgiving to errors. I've since bought Bawse as well, and Dream Huge which is a bright nude pink that I really like. It's not everlasting. If you eat anything oily (burgers, fries, pasta) it'll wear the product down considerably and I have to reapply completely. But for a night of just dancing, drinking, and socializing it's a perfect formula. It's comfortable to wear and easy to apply once you get used to the applicator.

            Love this Smashbox lipstick. The only reason I gave it a four instead of five star is because there is a VERY SLIGHT residue that comes off. So far the other two colors I have in this product and totally kiss proof and for some reason this red (and the other red color) have a very minimal bit that comes off.

                    • 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.
