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.

See swatches!

    I saw these in Sephora the other day, but didn’t get to swatch them. I like the idea of long-wear & SPF so I should probably go check them out. Would like to see if they have a color more opaque as I have a million and one sheer glosses. Thanks for the review Christine!

    This is really pretty, but I have several similar colours already although not long lasting ones, so might check out the other colours if I can (not sure where it’s available in the UK though).

    I have Forever and it doesn’t show up. The color just sort of fades away. It stays sticky and shiny but that’s not what I was hoping for when I bought this.

    Do you this this its drying? the mac long wears are SUPER drying — my lips hurt for days!

    • No, these aren’t drying, because they’re not like MAC’s prolongwears at all, which are liquid lipsticks that dry. These are still liquid glosses :)
