        Purchased this lipstick to go with my prom dress! It stayed on from 4:00pm-1:30am! I only had to reapply once but that was also after dinner so it was common!

        Ugh

        By Lipster

        from US

        Comments about Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick:

        Nice colors. I made the mistake of buying 4 different colors. Goes on smooth but makes every crease in lips standout, like crocodile skin. Smears and rubs off on glasses, clothes. I thought it was going to stay in place and be long wearing—wrong. Revlon Colorstay much better product IMO.

          Love this lip stain! I have looked and looked for a softer rosy pink that stays on and stays matte. This fits the bill! It stays on ALL a day w/ no reapplication. And it's not particularly drying either. Love it and will be getting other colors for sure!

                    • 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.
