The Summer Season: Smashbox Flirty Lipstick

Smashbox Flirty Photo Finish Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a stunning shade of played down magenta pink. It’s a blue-based pink, but it’s not too cool toned, so both warmer and cooler skin tones can wear it. It has a slightly glossy finish with very minimal shimmer, but lips look fuller with the smooth, even coverage of the Photo Finish formula. It’s a creamy, nearly opaque color that’s moisturizing and wears for a solid four hours. Photo Finish is definitely a bit of an underrated lipstick formula!

Is this the right pink lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Spring Season: Smashbox Splendid Lipstick

Smashbox Splendid Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, semi-opaque coral-pink with a glossy finish. It has subtle golden/champagne shimmer throughout, but it has more of a glimmering effect. Despite having a very soft and sheer look to it, it’s surprisingly opaque. It really melds and blends with your natural lip color, so it is easy to wear. Smashbox’s Lipsticks are always very creamy and moisturizing and wear for a solid four hours on me.
