Smashbox Punked, Violet Riot, Talk to Me Be Legendary Matte Lipsticks

Smashbox Punked Be Legendary Matte Lipstick
Smashbox Punked Be Legendary Matte Lipstick

Smashbox Punked Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It was more of a satin than a matte, as it had some sheen. The texture was lightweight, moderately creamy, and glided on without dragging on the lips. It had good pigmentation, which distributed evenly across the lips. This shade wore well for four and a half hours but had some color pull into lip lines over time. MAC Halsey (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Petit Four (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Smashbox Violet Riot Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) id a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish.

On me, this lipstick wore nicely for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Jawbreaker (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar).

Smashbox Talk to Me Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, neon magenta with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish.

The color lasted for over six hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Babe (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW |
Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to be a creamy, long-wearing, richly pigmented formula that’s lightweight and moisturizing. The texture has a more velvety feel compared to the Cream range, and the finish varied between matte and satin. The formula didn’t cling, but it often accentuated the appearance of lip lines and natural texture on the lips, and it was mostly a non-drying formula. The majority of the colors I tested had good pigmentation and longer wear. There was a very, very faint vanilla scent to them (I could only detect when the entire tube is untwisted) but no discernible taste.

Smashbox Femme Fatale Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a very deep berry with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color coverage, though not fully opaque, that applied evenly and smoothly. The texture of this shade was better than many in the range, as it was smooth, lightly velvety, but it didn’t cling or emphasize the natural texture of my lips. It wore well for over six hours, left a fuchsia stain behind, and was non-drying. MAC Babes and Balls (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M501 (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Smashbox Mauve Be Legendary Matte Lipstick
Smashbox Mauve Be Legendary Matte Lipstick

Smashbox Mauve Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a heavier consistency that was more cream-like than velvety, and it definitely was not matte. The texture caught on the natural texture of my lips, and the color pulled into lip lines over the four hours it lasted. It was neither drying nor hydrating, but it would streak anytime I pressed my lips together. MAC Please Me (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Anna (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar).

Smashbox Safe Word Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rose-brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This was one of the more matte shades in the range, as most were semi-matte or even satin. It had a velvety consistency that applied the full coverage color evenly and smoothly. On me, I was able to wear it for six hours, but it was lightly drying over time. Make Up For Ever C107 (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Evan (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Smashbox Pinch Me Be Legendary Matte Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was thicker, denser, and emphasized lip lines as the color settled there over time, so it wasn’t the most flattering shade to wear. I would recommend a lip primer or lip liner underneath to minimize settling. It had opaque coverage, though, and it was neither drying nor hydrating over the five hours it lasted.

Smashbox Red Rage Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark ruby red with strong, pink undertones and fine fuchsia shimmer sprinkled throughout. Though it wasn’t fully opaque, it covered evenly and smoothly as the lipstick glided on without tugging and sat well without settling into lip lines.

Of all the Cream shades, this had the least glossiness, but it definitely wasn’t matte.

FORMULA OVERVIEW |
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to be a creamy, long-wearing, richly pigmented formula that’s lightweight and moisturizing. The consistency is light-medium in thickness–not thin but not heavy–that sits well on the lips and adheres for four to seven hours comfortably. Most of the shades had semi-opaque to fully opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. Some shades were nicely hydrating while others were lightly moisturizing but none of the Cream shades were drying. There is a very, very faint vanilla scent to them (I can only detect when the entire tube is untwisted) but no discernible taste.

Smashbox Pretty Social, Audition, Chai Be Legendary Lipsticks

Smashbox Pretty Social Be Legendary Lipstick
Smashbox Pretty Social Be Legendary Lipstick

Smashbox Pretty Social Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale, light pink with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a glossy finish. This shade had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly but had a tendency to settle into lip lines immediately. The settling worsened over the four hours the color lasted, unfortunately. While it was lightly hydrating, it was one of the worst shades I tried in this formula due to the application and more slippery consistency of the lipstick itself. MAC Angel (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Vivid Imagination (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Blushing Pout (P, $7.99) is more pigmented (90% similar).

MAC Long Legged & Fabulous (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Smashbox Audition Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and easy to apply as it didn’t tug on the lips. The color lasted for a solid four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Backtalk (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Cabana Boy (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (DC, $22.00) is warmer, less glossy (95% similar). MAC Modesty (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Fig (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Colour Pop Jiffy (LE, $6.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Smashbox Chai Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good color coverage that applied without tugging on the lips, as the texture was lightly creamy without feeling heavy or moving easily. This shade felt more emollient than some shades, so the finish was glossier. It was moderately moisturizing over the four hours it wore for, but I did have a bit of color settle into lip lines over time.

FORMULA OVERVIEW |
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to be a creamy, long-wearing, richly pigmented formula that’s lightweight and moisturizing. The consistency is light-medium in thickness–not thin but not heavy–that sits well on the lips and adheres for four to seven hours comfortably. Most of the shades had semi-opaque to fully opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. Some shades were nicely hydrating while others were lightly moisturizing but none of the Cream shades were drying. There is a very, very faint vanilla scent to them (I can only detect when the entire tube is untwisted) but no discernible taste.
