Smashbox Limitless Long Wearing Lip Gloss ($21.00) is a new gloss formula from Smashbox to debut this summer season. It’s a long-wearing gloss that’s supposed to give you wear of up to six hours. The formula is also touted as being non-sticky and non-drying. It’s definitely not sticky like MAC lipglass, but the texture is fairly thick while the the doe applicator doesn’t let you apply too much gloss at all.
The gloss does have SPF 15 (7.5% Octinoxate, 3.0% Avobenzone) in it, which is always a nice benefit to have. The color range includes six shades, ranging from nudish beige to raspberry pink to deeper beige. The color I tried was Nonstop, which is a raspberryish shade. It has pretty shimmer in it, and it does give my lips some color. It kind of deepens and brightens up the natural color without being too bright. The new Limitless Lip Glosses are great if you’re looking for sheer gloss that’ll wear well for about four to six hours.

Smashbox’s Untamed Collection is their summer launch featuring six new products, plus four shades of their Waterproof Shadow/Liner Duos. They launched two glosses, two eyeshadow/liner trios, creamy cheek color, and a brightening pencil.
I tested out the Untamed Waterproof Shadow Liner Trio in Savage ($29.00), which features a soft, beigey-pink, deeper olive green, and a warm, shimmery brown. They’re all creamy shadows designed to use as liners, bases, or eyeshadows. They are waterproof, therefore crease-proof, too. Just be sure to prepare yourself for the size of this product, because each part of the trio is fairly small. It’s not necessarily a bad value, it’s just surprising.
Terracotta Creamy Cheek Color ($24.00) is a soft, fleshy reddish-brown color that goes on sheer and creamy. It’s easy to blend, and it looks very natural on the face. It’s definitely not an overwhelming color, and it is a nice alternative to bronzer, too.
I also tried Untamed Lip Gloss in Raw ($18.00), which is described as a deep red. I’d have to say it’s more like a semi-sheer reddish brown, over a “deep red.” I really thought I’d like this shade, but it’s not as red as I was hoping for. It looks better on my lips than I expected it, too, though, because it goes on fairly sheer and just gives my lips more of a brownish-red tint.
