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 Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

    I hate that so many shades of lipsticks looks so good on your lips. Makes me want to get them, but then, they don’t work on my darker lips! But I like all your lipstick reviews. Keep up the good work!
