Most Helpful Positive Review Nifty Little Lip Pencil
As much as I'm a huge lipstick fan, I honestly don't wear lip liners that much. but this lipliner has made me rethink this stance. It's smooth and creamy and goes on very easily, with a little bit of a moisturizing effect as well (while being matte, a lip look I prefer.) I received two colors, medium neutral rose and dark reddish brown. The rose is very close to my natural lip color and gives a "your lips but better" effect when I use it over the whole lip, and when used as a base for my lighter lipsticks it helps them last longer and smudge outside the lip line less. The dark reddish brown is not a color that goes with my personal blue undertoned very light complexion but it's very pretty and I bet it would look wonderful on someone with more olive or deep tones in their skin. And it adds a nice dimension to my red lipsticks when I want a darker look! Overall a very nice product that I enjoyed a lot, I'm grateful to Influenster and Smashbox for providing these pencils in Vox Box for me to try. First two pictures are the pencils on their own, last two are the neutral rose layered under Laura Geller Fifty Kisses in Melon Crush, and the reddish brown layered under Mac lipstick in Chili.
Most Helpful Critical Review Dry, but lasts and lasts
So Smashbox's Be Legendary line is, I believe, promoted for its wear power. I will say, this lip liner lasts forever!! The color is rich and opaque to boot. Those are the positives. If you have an event where you need your lip liner to stay put no matter what, this is what you want.
The downsides for me was how drying it is. It doesn't apply especially nice, I prefer a formula that is a bit creamier. It also looks a quite dry on the lips- like the OG liquid lipsticks. I didn't think my lips were dry until I put this on, it highlighted every crease.
That being said, I did fill in my lips with this, maybe it's better as just a liner only. But I worried about the liner lasting through everything and my lipstick wearing off giving me that too lined look throughout the day.

Tried this lipliner. It runs bad.
TexasLady from Texas
This color is beautiful. I wish they would make a Matt lip to go with it, exactly the same color. This is my new favorite. I have went through three of them in a few months. Hope they never discontinue this color.

This pencil goes on smooth & lasts without drying.
I would not buy this again

I usually use smash box medium nude lip liner
Unfortunately it was discontinued. I purchase this dark brown lip liner & was truly disappointed with the red it has.
love it but don't love it
Milan from Los Angeles
Love the color, the pigment, the results.. but very disappointed in the quality. It doesn't last longer than a week with tips that constantly break and no way to sharpen or get more product after. I'll try something else next time!
Absolutely ❤️ love
Allie C from Jacksonville Florida
Smashbox has done it again. I bought these on a blind buy and I'm so glad I did. The formula is beautiful smooth comfortable and long wearing!!! Will definitely be repurchasing these and highly recommend
Wanted to love it. It felt great and the color was perfect.

The second time I went to apply it, the tip fell off and I couldn't get anything out of the end.
nancyann from Newport Beach, CA
Tip of lip liner broke off at the base the first time I used it. Tried to sharpen it with my usual sharpener, which always works on this type of plastic pencil. The lip liner is so soft and the plastic pencil so hard that the results were disastrous. Such a disappointment.
Just not the same...
Make-up Fan from Iowa
Really miss the self- sharpener. Was my favorite! :( Not convenient to have in my purse. The liner regularly breaks during application. Colors are not the same, not even similar.
Difficult to sharpen, so much product lost
Serene from Sacramento, CA
I bought this lip liner due to the creaminess and color, but once I tried to sharpen using a brand new pencil sharpener, the plastic casing is impossible to cut evenly without losing a ton of the actual product. I had to use my fingers to create the point back. Absolutely unacceptable. I have never seen such poor design in a product.
I am in Love

I love this lip liner product. Smashbox never seems to disappoints me at all. It goes on so smooth on my lips and it last all night. I definitely recommend to others.
andreas3 from Mission, TX
I really love the quality if this product. I used it not as a liner but as an all lip fill and it worked really well. It lasted a long time even after eating. I highly really recommend this great product!
Great product, awful to sharpen
Carol from Schaumburg Illinois
I loved previous self sharpening Always Sharp liner and am SO disappointed in the new Be Legendary pencil … casing is too hard & color too soft to sharpen well to a point. Breaks off with even the best sharpeners, wasting so much product. Still great lasting color, but will probably switch to another brand.
Quality is good but "medium brown" is medium pink
BratzDoll from St Augustine, FL
First I bought the dark brown, which was too deep, dark, and rich, albeit lovely quality....so I then decided to buy the medium brown, assuming it would be the next step down in brown shades. What a huge disappointment...it is like a medium rosy pink. I don't understand how this can be called "medium brown." So weird!
cglez from Exeter, CA
First time trying Smashbox pencils and I'm so glad to have been able to try these pencils because they are amazing! So bold, so pigmented, and applies so smoothly. Will definitely be purchasing the other colors "]
great lip liner
lauries7e79 from Chestnut Hill, MA
I was very impressed, this lip liner is very soft and creamy but is matte. It looks great on its own or paired with a lipstick or gloss on top. The only downside is that you have to sharpen it. But I would definitely consider purchasing again! It lasts a long time on the lips
Works well and is
devynp from Rocklin, CA
Works well and is a little cheaper than other high end products. A nice range of colors available. Would recommend to others :)
Does a good job!
prachik8 from Bellevue, WA
Great product! Does a good job as a liner. Looks like a deeper color in the start but doesn't last too long unfortunately. Can be mixed with other colors too and gives a good end product!
Light Brown Honey ❤❤❤
MakeUpJunkie, RN from Arkansas
Light Brown Honey is money, y'all!! Both the formula and color are perfection! For reference, I have light-medium skin with yellow/neutral undertones (Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation 27S Light Medium Sand), light brown eyes, med brown hair. Loving this shade especially with a bronze/copper goddess look! ❤❤ BTW folks, this liner with MAC Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy is my new fav combo by a long shot!!! Try that combo.... you'll thank me later!
This product is one
1tnydncr from Long Beach, CA
This product is one of my go-to lip liners now! I love the color medium neutral rose and it stays on pretty well! I recently have been pairing it with another lipstick and it's the perfect combo! The other color is amazing too! I highly recommend it!
Lip liner newbie...I love it!
Saunce from Boston, MA
I am a 50 yr old woman, new to lip lining. Started lining my lips to make them appear fuller. This color (Medium Pink Rose) was perfect on my fair skin tone. Glides on wonderfully and lasted all day.
Absolutely loved these.
grrrbeth from Casselberry, FL
I absolutely loves these lip liners. They went on smooths and they lasted all night. I wore one to a wedding with an open bar where I drank and danced and laughed all night. I will absolutely purchase these again, and would also recommend these to everyone I know.
overall good product
brh from Columbus Afb, MS
I loved the way the packaging looked on this product but the only defect that it had was the top that it came with. The top came in contact with the lip liner and wasted it far too many times. But the lip liner itself was good. The only thing I disliked was that it was hard to move around. Once it is on it is not moving.
alondroot from Santa Rosa, CA
It's an extremely smooth lip liner, very beautiful color! I can use it on it's own or top it off with a gloss.
