The Scarlet Season: Smashbox Starlet Lip Enhancing Lip Gloss

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss Siren ($18.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a semi-opaque shade of pinky-red with subtle golden shimmer and a high gloss sheen. Like previously mentioned Siren, the formula is all about high-shine without being sticky. It’s a moisturizing gloss that looks good and fades well, though it lasts about four hours on my lips. The scent is a lightly sweetened vanilla that’s pleasing without being cloying or synthetic. I do like Starlit over Siren, just because this has better coverage and doesn’t sink into lip lines much at all.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

    That is pretty, there is a pinkness to it that I really like. I think it is a good “trainer” red too.

    Love it. It’s sheer enough that I would wear it. I don’t wear red much. I’m too pale.
