The Scarlet Season: Smashbox Legendary Lipstick

Smashbox Legendary Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an ultra glossy blue-based red lipstick. It glides on effortlessly and gives nearly opaque color is just two layers. It has a very glossy look to it, but there is no shimmer to it. It’s one of Smashbox’s Photo Finish Lipsticks, which means they “infused” their Photo Finish Foundation Primer into it. All in all, it’s supposed to make it feel silkier, smoother, and increase wear-time. I found it definitely felt very smooth and soft on my lips, and it certainly wore well throughout the afternoon I tested it (about five hours). It’s not the longest-lasting lipstick I’ve worn, but it’s very comfortable, which is a huge plus.

Edit: Fixed the photos!

The Scarlet Season: MAC Rockocco Lipstick

MAC Rockocco Lipstick ($14.00) was a limited edition shade of fiery orange-based red with a creamy texture, semi-matte finish, and a subtle sheen. It’s definitely one of my favorite orange-based reds, and I love the way it clings to lips without drying them out. This is probably one of my top three red lipstick shades I wish MAC would repromote, because it really just has something extra about it that nothing in the permanent line brings to the table.
