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.

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.

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 !

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.

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!

Color is very fresh and ready for Spring/Summer. Goes on easy and has just the right amount of shine.

This lipstick dried my lips out so bad. I must have really deep grooves in my lips because I just CANNOT find a lipstick that doesn't dry darker in some spots than others. My lips always end up looking discolored and uneven. The color was not even close to the color online, I got Booked thinking it was going to be a nice soft pinkish-rosy color but it ended up being a really dark plum and looked terrible on my pale skin....the search for the perfect lipstick continues...

I wore this for 12 hours straight and only reapplied it once after eating. It doesn't dry out my lips and it's a really versatile color and matches just about any outfit! It does transfer the first three hours I had since application (as I had a drink at the time), but not so much where it leaves you looking streaky. It's almost the same shade as my bare lips so I can use it for a more "natural" look when I'm on the job or at college. I always swatch lipsticks before I purchase them, and this one stained my arm for a day or two, so you don't have to worry too much about it coming off!

Colors and very moist are my go to!

True Reds are so difficult to find. This is not too orange and not to pink. Deep beautiful red. It stays on well, even through eating and drinking. Great matte appearance but doesn't feel overly dry.

I repurchased this lipstick due to non use. I paired it with a lipliner. I didn't realize how pretty this color looked on me. This is perfect for a nude lip.
Raine from Ventura County CA
Needed a lipstick and associate was right on, my husband even liked the lipstick shade from Matchbox...I'm loving it!
Madhu from Seattle
I bought the shades first time matte and off script. They are lovely, long wearing and amazing colors you don't see that often. Definitely recommend.

I have used Smashbox for over 10 yrs and have never had an issue. Have used this for particular color for at least 3 years and have now ordered my 3rd tube. I wear it all seasons because it works great with my skin tone. Great color, decent price.
Trace from Kirkland
This is a perfect nude shade, not too light or too dark for my skin tone. It's creamy and moisturizing.
