Most Helpful Positive Review Really Purple Lipstick
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!
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 red contains white and it didn't work for me
Smooth and long lasting
Jefe from Houston, TX
I really love smashbox lipsticks and i needed a coral so i decided to try this one. it goes on smooth and last a long time. i was hoping it wouldn't come off on the mask but it does slightly. if wearing a mask be careful of the smear. not as bad as glossy lipsticks though.. the color is intense and vibrant. a great spring/summer color! i look forward to wearing it all summer!
Warrior Pose not as pictured
Fyrefly from Seattle
Warrior pose is a weird, dark gray-green-brown color. The picture on Ulta's website makes it look like it has some pink/rosey tones, but in real life it does not. This is being returned.
Carolyn from Michigan
I bought this in bing and was thoroughly impressed! it matches my pale complexion much better than other reds I've tried before. it's a smooth, silky application.
Kelley from Philadelphia, PA
I bought this in Witchy and really love the shade. I think it lasted pretty well and the application was smooth
Great color, doesn't last
Kels from Roseville
So I absolutely love the bright coral color. It's super bold and has really great pigment. However, the lipstick really doesn't have any staying power, even without a mask on. I really love smashbox liquid lipsticks though so I may try to find a similar color in those.
I love this lipstick
Mustang Shirley from Niles, IL
I love this lipstick. The Pout (bubblegum pink) works well with my skin tone. The pink color is very pretty and stands out nice but it's not too bright. It goes on smooth and doesn't dry my lips out. The only problem is I have to reapply it every so often since it does smudge and comes off after awhile. Other than that, I love it!
Loved the rose color.!!
Fannyboo from Albuquerque, NM
The rose color this has its amazing it goes perfect with my skin tone and for a daily used.
I would buy this product again.
Heartlady from San Jose, CA
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.
Fig is a perfect shade for fall
Mrs. Anonymous from Indiana
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.
Lovely colors, thin formula sinks into lip lines
Anggg from TX
Smashbox has lovely colors for lipsticks but this formula sinks into lip lines and accentuates them. Has zero blurring properties.
I love this shade!
Michelle Bower from Colorado
I love this shade. It is flattering and great for running out the door.
DEANNA from NY
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!
Love the color, but not the feel
Rachel from PA
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.
My New Favorite Lipstick
Cdshell from Leland, NC
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.
A beautiful comfortable matte lipstick!
BeautyFan! from Illinois
Finally a matte lipstick that is smooth without any tingling or strange scents. It wears beautifully with full coverage and feels comfortable.

Love matte lipstick love smashbox they have great colors ..I am very picky about colors
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!
BeautyFan from Illinois
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.
Bought this during Lipstick Week
Gianna from Lake Mary, Florida
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.
Tina from Ohio
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.
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.
Dani from State College Pa
Everyday wear that provides beautiful results !
Perfect shade of nude with just a hint of color.
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.
