Smashbox Skinny Jeans Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark blue with fine pearl. The pearl is less obvious once applied, but there is a subtle sheen and luminosity to the finish from it.

The Be Legendary formula is supposed to have “rich, vibrant color” that is long-wearing and moisturizing. The brand described it as a “sheery navy,” which is more accurate than the more generic, formula-wide description, as it had more medium coverage that was buildable up to semi-opaque pigmentation. The texture had some slip, which made it comfortable to wear, but it applied unevenly, gathered in lip lines, and was hard to keep from sliding around (though it didn’t actually feather on me). This shade wore well for four hours on me and stained my lips bluish.

Action

Smashbox Action Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium purple with subtle, warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff that went on evenly for the most part; there was some color that seemed to migrate into my lip lines slightly.

The Be Legendary formula is supposed to have “rich, vibrant color” that is long-wearing and moisturizing. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and non-tacky but still emollient enough to glide across the lips with ease. It was comfortable to wear for the four and a half hours it lasted, and I felt like it kept my lips hydrated.

Golden Hour

Smashbox Golden Hour Cover Shot Eye Palette ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a small, travel-friendly palette that features a warm, gold and plum-themed color scheme across eight shades. What I liked about this palette was that each well was large enough for regular eyeshadow brushes, and there was enough product across each that nothing felt skimpy. It actually is a more realistic amount of product, where one can finish and work through it, particularly for those of us with less modest stashes!

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “beyond blendable” texture. The eyeshadows in this palette had good to great pigmentation, softer, slightly dustier textures that were blendable but a couple shades were more prone to sheering out without a primer underneath. It did seem like a formula that I would not wear without a primer, but it was workable on bare skin. The wear was between seven and eight hours, depending on the shade, which is about average for me. The biggest issue I had when I worked without a primer was just that the formula was more prone to fallout during the application.

The palette should release officially on December 7th.

Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palettes ($29.00 for 0.27 oz.) recently had an early access, one-day release but will be released again shortly (12/2 on Smashbox’s website at the very least) and are part of spring’s launches. There are seven variations, and they are a slim, compact palette (they actually contain more than it seems like they would, given their size). I’ll be working through them and hope to have some reviews sooner rather than later.

Black Cherry

Smashbox Black Cherry Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep berry with a hint of cool, red undertones and a natural sheen. There was very, very fine shimmer throughout, but it was sparse and only gave it greater luminosity but did not make it appear pearly, frosted, or metallic. It had semi-opaque, even coverage, which gave it a lip-stained-like appearance as the translucency was noticeable but even.

The texture felt moderately emollient with some slip, a light-medium thickness, and didn’t tug or pull on the lips when applied directly from the tube. This shade wore well for five and a half hours, left a soft stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time. I liked it overall, and I think the translucency and finish will be right up someone’s alley, though it isn’t quite the most “pigment-loaded” shade I’ve tried from the range.
