Space Case

Smashbox Space Case Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark gray with cool undertones and a very fine, gray pearl. It had good color payoff, but this shade was harder to apply evenly; I had some issues getting the edges to look even and there was some serious settling in my deeper lip lines. The texture was moderately tacky, not as spreadable as others in the line, and light-medium in weight. The natural lip color came through slightly, which had an impact on the overall tone of the end result, I think. On me, the product wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

The formula is supposed to have “the full coverage a lipstick” with “the high shine of a gloss” in “a single coat” and is available in two finishes (metallic and vinyl). To me, it felt more like a gloss than a lipstick overall, as it had the plushness and glossiness I’d associate with a gloss. The coverage was typically mostly opaque to fully opaque across the range, and they went on fairly evenly and smoothly. I noticed that a lot of shades emphasized the lines on my lips up-close, but I couldn’t tell just looking in a regular mirror, as there was such a strong shine. The wear ranged from five to seven hours, which I suspect is partially due to the slightly thicker, moderately tacky texture.

Girl, Please

Smashbox Girl, Please Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is medium-dark brown with strong, warm undertones and very fine peach pearl. It had opaque color coverage in one coat, as described, and the color spread evenly across the lips without streaking. There was noticeable color in my lip lines when I looked up-close, though it was less apparent at a full view as the finish was quite shiny. This shade wore well for five and a half hours on me and was somewhat hydrating.

Pink Drank

Smashbox Pink Drank Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth-feeling gloss that spread comfortably across the lips. It applied fairly evenly with almost no streaking, but there was a bit of color that gathered in my lip lines. The texture was light-medium in thickness, not heavy, and moderately tacky. The hybrid lipstick/lipgloss lasted for five hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Crimson Chrome

Smashbox Crimson Chrome Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium ruby red with fine, red pearl. The pearl was similar in tone compared to the base color, which gave it a stronger metallic sheen–it looked more foil-like than other shades. The consistency was smooth, not too thick or heavy but more substantial on the lips than your average gloss, with some tackiness. It was intensely pigmented with a bit of color that sat in my lip lines, though I did not notice that at a normal viewing distance. The color stayed on well for over six hours and was slightly hydrating.

Pearl

Smashbox Pearl Spotlight Palette ($35.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains three highlighters: a pale yellow, peachy brown, and golden peach. Smashbox describes the palette as having three finishes–subtle glow, moderate, and super sparkle–and that the texture is “ultra-blendable, velvety smooth.” The first two highlighters were better performing than the third, which had a drier, stiffer texture that made it harder to apply and much less pigmented compared to the other two shades.

Gold

Smashbox Gold Spotlight Palette ($35.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains three powder highlighters that are golden in tone/hue. Smashbox describes the palette as having three finishes–subtle glow, moderate, and super sparkle–and that the texture is “ultra-blendable, velvety smooth.” The first two shades are better in quality, while the last shade had a firmer, drier texture and was more sparkle than powder. Whether one prefers or steers clear of sparkle is one matter, but this type of sparkle did not apply well to the skin, as it was looser and did not spread evenly.
