Smashbox Cosmetics – Lip Enhancing Gloss – Photos & Swatches

Smashbox’s Lip Enhancing Gloss ($18.00 each) comes in three different finishes: sheer color with full shine but sheer color; true color, which has a softer shine and medium opacity; and full color, which is the most pigmented with high shine. There are eleven shades in sheer color, nine shades in true color, and six shades in full color. Lip Enhancing Gloss is non-sticky, thin to medium in texture, and fairly moisturizing. They last so-so on lips–I get a few hours of wear–and they have a nice glossy finish.  Here is a selection of swatches and photos of some of the Lip Enhancing Glosses (all the ones my Smashbox counter had)!

Where to Buy: Nordstrom.com

Note: I do not own these, so I cannot do lip swatches for you! Sorry :( Tell the Smashbox fairy to come and leave some under my pillow, LOL!

  1. Pixel, Sultry & Flash are my favs! Candid looks a little Nars Orgasm ( or Nymphette perhaps? )

  2. Tatiana

    The Smashbox fairy needs to holla at me too…I want Starlit!

  3. MC

    I want Candid in a lipstick… maybe with a little more gold… just at tiny bit more. Suggestions?

  4. margot

    liking pout and scoop. I bought Electric and liking it

  5. I LOVE the colors of smashbox lipgloss, but they do not stay on for more than like 10 min….Another thing is they don’t put very much product in the containers…I have to pump and pump the applicator to get a tiny bit of color (I own pout, scoop, and fame)

  6. Meagan

    Right now I only have Debut and Surge but I have a bunch of non permanent colors too that came in sets and as samples!

  7. Kitson

    Is there a MAC lipgloss that is similar to fame?

  8. Janelle

    Looove Candid, Electric, and Starlit :)

  9. Susie

    I love Candid. Its a great color ..total winner.

  10. Heather

    I love candid I wish it was more vibrant thought.

  11. Goodness Luxe looks beautiful! Though… I don’t think it’d actually look good on my lips! :\

    Christine,
    Is Pout similar to Fashion Scoop?

  13. Madeline

    You have to try Illume….it is amazing over a nude lip! They recommend wearing it over ‘Charming’ but i find i have to use concealer first too to get the right effect.

  14. does anyone know a great dupe for the smashbox lip gloss in beauty..they’ve discontinued it and it’s my favourite gloss..help!

    • morgan
