My lovely angels, Today’s review is about Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick. This is my first smashbox product ever. I received a bright neon pink shade from the collection. Shade is ‘magenta matte’. I love matte lip formulas because of the good pigmentation and staying power. Read more to find out whether my first Smashbox lipstick impressed me.IMG_5890

My opinion about this lipstick
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick -Magenta Matte is a highly pigmented bright neon pink (blue undertones). The formula  is not drying on lips. But on application- It’s not very creamy enough for my liking. One main thing I noted about this lipstick is how much it stains my lips. Formula is semi-matte

Pigmentation & staying power
Highly pigmented.  As it stain my lips in a deep pink color, the color stays long after the actual lipstick wears off. I got almost 7 hours of wear. It’s like a neon pink on my NC40 skintone. I feel this shade suits paler skintones better.

Overall, a lipstick with good packaging. Highly pigmented formula. I am not a fan of the non-creamy formulation. The product is not drying but it doesn’t feel moisturizing on my lips either. This lipstick stain my lips in a deep pink color- So,the color stays long after the actual lipstick wears off. If you are looking for long lasting matte neon pink color, then this is worth checking out.
