Most Helpful Positive Review best lipstick I've owned so far
I have read reviews about this lipstick that they're not long lasting, not true to color etc. Maybe this is true for the other colors, but the Infrared Matte lipstick is the best red I've yet to find. It stays on all day like a stain, the color doesn't wear away- a few reapplications may be needed to color the inner sides of lips if I happen to drink. Also, I've been stopped so many times on a daily basis (on a regular basis now, actually) about what a great red my lipstick is- one lady even told me that she really appreciates a good red. I haven't had one bad comment about this color. The only thing that bothers me a little about this lipstick is that it is SO drying (but then again it is a matte) and sometimes I feel like I may need a few reapplications just because it feels like I'm not wearing anything. Considering how much I love this lipstick, I can deal and I don't have problems with my lips being dry to not be able to deal with it.
I think this may be a useful review for the matte selection since I've noticed the other reviews lean towards the lipsticks that shimmer- which are cream. Also there are only 2 matte lipsticks- the latte (which personally, washes me out) and the infrared. so maybe smashbox did something right with matte and skimped on the cream?
hope this helps! I love my lipstick!! going back soon to stock up.
Most Helpful Critical Review Primrose & Legendary
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.

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.
My Favorite Lipstick in My Collection
LookinGoodATL from Atlanta, GA
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!

Wanted a good matte long lasting lipstick sales lady said this was the one. Nope it does not last fades really bad.
Soft and buildable
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.
KayOH from Ohio
Easy to use, color stays on and easy to travel with
This lipstick Rocks

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
Great quality and colors
Stephanie from Minneapolis
Smashbox lipstick is the best, highly recommend!
AnjiP from Hammond IN
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.
The color is too light. More like a blue gray
Coffeedrinker from Sterling Heights, mi
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.
I would buy this again

Color is very fresh and ready for Spring/Summer. Goes on easy and has just the right amount of shine.
I would buy again!
Katie from Owasso
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!
Yes I would buy this product again.
Mimi from Florida
Colors and very moist are my go to!
Nice neutral color
Luvallbeauty from Ohio
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.
Perfect rich coral color
GDK from SC
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.
Great neutral shade
Trace from Kirkland
This is a perfect nude shade, not too light or too dark for my skin tone. It's creamy and moisturizing.
Love the color!!

Rose from San Jose
I would like to recommend Smashbox lipsticks. Love all the colors especially the inspiration one.
Completely different color.
TheMandi from CatIsland
I checked the name on the tester against the name on the box and it matched, was correct.
The tester was obviously negatively impacted by exposure from the lights in the store and abuse from patrons improperly testing the product. I was shocked to see the actual color of the product once I had it home, it was nothing like the tester. I feel Ulta should have higher sanitary standards when it comes to patrons self testing products directly on their hands, lips, face. Not only does that practice change the consistency and color of the products it leaves patrons at risk for infection and disease. I suffer from Lupus, my mother cancer, I once enjoyed shopping in store but feel purchasing any product is a health risk.
Even if I was not chronically ill I would still be risking my health as there are so many sanitary breeches. I will drive the 40 minutes back to the store to return this item but I will stick with drugstore brands in fully sealed blister packaging or that have unbroken seals directly on the products.
Top Shelf is my FAVORITE color!
Erin from Twin Cities, MN
Top Shelf is my absolute favorite color. I'm on tube #2, and my only complaint is that the stick detached from the tube after only a few uses.
Lucille from Parkland, Fla.
Love the color and texture
New Favorite Lipstick
ashcat1117 from Chattanooga, TN
I purchased this lipstick in the shade Honey to wear for work and it has easily become my new go-to lipstick. It's a beautiful neutral shade that would work for many skin tones and doesn't feel like a lipstick as it is hydrating and not heavy. Highly recommend.
I would buy this product again
