The main reason I purchased this lipstick is that I was disappointed in a different brand's purple lipgloss. I wanted PURPLE but I found the lipgloss and other purple lipsticks go on leaning more toward red. That means, on my lips at least, they looked more like a very dark red than a true violet. I ended up buying this Smashbox lipstick because it goes on very purple and looks great if you're into vibrant color! It's not too bright though, actually it looks quite dark unless you're in a very well lit place, so you don't have to worry about looking too wild (if you want wild, this lipstick may not be enough). My intention was to wear the lipgloss over the lipstick for a shiny look. That ended up working perfectly but the lipstick is so nice and creamy that I don't feel the need to add the gloss all the time.
I do have a few problems with the lipstick, though. I have to keep swiping and swiping in order to get a really rich application. After that, it wears off quite easily. If I want the color to stay vibrant, I have to reapply after every drink of water (and I drink a lot of water, gotta stay healthy and hydrated!). You can see the huge, messy lipstick deposit on my waterbottle after every sip (which I have to then wipe off every time). Finally, if I let the lipstick wear off too much, you can really see how the color settles into the lines of my lips. That's when the lipstick is at its worst and I either have to do a full application again or thoroughly wash my lips to get rid of the color lines.
In the end though, I really like this lipstick. It's actually the first lipstick I've purchased; I usually go for more hydrating lip color like gloss or oil. That's a testament to how great the pigment is. I wouldn't recommend this lipstick for all-day set-it-and-forget-it wear (at least not the purple I got, perhaps a lighter color wouldn't wear off so obviously) but for parties and nights out, heck yes!
They are lipsticks. They wear like lipsticks. Zero complaints, because I knew what I was getting into. But those are NOT the colors I thought they'd be. Primrose is almost peachy-coral, and Legendary is almost tomato-y. Not at all what they advertised themselves as.

One of the beauty experts when I asked for help picking out a new shade of lipstick picked this one. I have loved it from the first time I used it.

Smashbox knocks it out of the lipstick park again! I purchased Fig while looking for a wine/berry shade, and I'm quite happy with it. I have not yet worn this lipstick under my face mask, so I can't judge the smear factor, but I love the formula so much that I sure hope I've got a winner.

Smashbox has lovely colors for lipsticks but this formula sinks into lip lines and accentuates them. Has zero blurring properties.

I love this shade. It is flattering and great for running out the door.

Smashbox Pout has been my go to lip color for a few years now! I highly recommend this product to any consumer interested in purchasing the item!

This goes on pretty sticky and continues to feel sticky for a good 20 minutes. It doesn't feel nourishing to my lips. It does last a long time and the color (Primrose) is fantastic. I just wish it felt better on my lips.

This is my new favorite lipstick. I was looking for a lipstick that wasn't drying, would feel good on my lips, but that was not sticky. I live on the coast and it's always windy here. There is nothing worse than walking out into the wind and having your hair stick to your lips. I hate the matte lipsticks because they don't look natural and they often feel too drying. This satin finish lipstick feels great, has beautiful shades, and is long lasting. This was recommended by a sales associate and I loved it so much I went back the next day for another shade.

Finally a matte lipstick that is smooth without any tingling or strange scents. It wears beautifully with full coverage and feels comfortable.

My favorite lipstick of all brands that I own; I love the color Primrose because it goes with everything! I hate the look and feel of matte lipsticks on me, as they are aging, feel dry and don't work on my thin lips, but this creamy formula is not shiny or sticky, and feels great on my lips. I love how it doesn't come off on my cloth face masks. I will be buying again!

Most matte lipsticks are way too drying, not this one! It has great coverage and is long lasting. The shade "stylist" is such a pretty rose pink without being too bold.

My overall review is geared more towards Ulta customer service and not just Smashbox. I bought two Smashbox lipsticks for the Buy One, Get One Free deal the company advertised. Originally for the deal, I chose a pretty reddish color from Smashbox and a natural pink from IT Cosmetics. When I went to check out, the cashier had no idea about this sale and told me I could not mix and match brands to get the deal (you can - it is written all over the store and website and she had no clue what was going on). The reason I bring this up is that I'm not totally happy with the pink/coral substitute from Smashbox, because it creases after a while. I am used to reapplying reds, so I would be fine with this, but I'm not for a natural pink. I wish I would have trusted my gut on this and not listen to someone who didn't know what was going on.

Wanted a good matte long lasting lipstick sales lady said this was the one. Nope it does not last fades really bad.
Rose from San Diego
I loved it ❤ It feels smooth and creamy on my lips.
Alex W from Long Beach, CA
Loved this color. With one layer it almost gave a soft powder look, and saw the color became more pigmented as I applied more layers. Felt comfortable to wear all evening and didn't wear off much even after eating BBQ.

Everyday wear that provides beautiful results !
Carey from North Carolina
My son chose this color for me as Christmas gift and he absolutely nailed it! It quickly became my go to for an everyday natural look. It is nude with just a hint of color. I have medium skin and works well during every season.

Wear this color everyday. Perfectly neutral shade, goes with everything and won't leave you with dry chapped lips.

This is the lipstick I put on when I want to be noticed people always compliments me on the color and ask what I am wearing

Was very disappointed with this. Not only was the color not what is pictured but it doesn't stay put. I had to reapply and reapply. Not happy.

This lipstick is not as dark as it appears in the sample picture. It's more like a blue gray. Not dark at all no matter how many layers you put on.

It goes on smooth and creamy, and the color is as pictured!
