Iced Out

Smashbox Iced Out Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a rich, deep blue with a hint of purple and fine blue pearl. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, tacky but not goopy, and smooth. It was intensely pigmented and applied with opaque coverage in a single layer with little fuss. There was a bit of color that sat in my lip lines (they seemed darker), the high-shine finish made that less apparent in person. On me, this shade wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating.

The formula is supposed to have “the full coverage a lipstick” with “the high shine of a gloss” in “a single coat” and is available in two finishes (metallic and vinyl). To me, it felt more like a gloss than a lipstick overall, as it had the plushness and glossiness I’d associate with a gloss. The coverage was typically mostly opaque to fully opaque across the range, and they went on fairly evenly and smoothly. I noticed that a lot of shades emphasized the lines on my lips up-close, but I couldn’t tell just looking in a regular mirror, as there was such a strong shine. The wear ranged from five to seven hours, which I suspect is partially due to the slightly thicker, moderately tacky texture. You can view swatches of all shades here.

Smashbox Baller, Bubbly, Moody, Nymph Always On Gel Eyeliners

Baller

Smashbox Baller Always On Gel Liner ($18.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep, blue-teal with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage that was somewhat even. I expected this shade to apply better than it did, and to help the color even out, I used a synthetic smudger brush to smudge and blend out the edges a bit. It was comfortable to apply and never tugged, even on the waterline. It wore well for eleven hours well on my lower lash line and nine hours on my lower waterline; after sixteen hours, there was still visible liner on my lower lash line but seemed like 40% had worn away (give or take!).

The Always On Gel Liner formula is supposed to have “super-saturated color” that wears for “over 24 hours” (because 24 hours aren’t enough!). I have four shades, and while they are long-wearing, they definitely look thinner and a little faded after ten hours of wear (and even thinner after sixteen hours of wear). They have a really creamy, almost slippery, consistency initially but dry down and remain resistant to transferring and smudging during the day. I found them harder to sharpen because the pencil was so creamy that sometimes it clogged up my sharpener.

Space Case

Smashbox Space Case Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark gray with cool undertones and a very fine, gray pearl. It had good color payoff, but this shade was harder to apply evenly; I had some issues getting the edges to look even and there was some serious settling in my deeper lip lines. The texture was moderately tacky, not as spreadable as others in the line, and light-medium in weight. The natural lip color came through slightly, which had an impact on the overall tone of the end result, I think. On me, the product wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

The formula is supposed to have “the full coverage a lipstick” with “the high shine of a gloss” in “a single coat” and is available in two finishes (metallic and vinyl). To me, it felt more like a gloss than a lipstick overall, as it had the plushness and glossiness I’d associate with a gloss. The coverage was typically mostly opaque to fully opaque across the range, and they went on fairly evenly and smoothly. I noticed that a lot of shades emphasized the lines on my lips up-close, but I couldn’t tell just looking in a regular mirror, as there was such a strong shine. The wear ranged from five to seven hours, which I suspect is partially due to the slightly thicker, moderately tacky texture.

Girl, Please

Smashbox Girl, Please Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is medium-dark brown with strong, warm undertones and very fine peach pearl. It had opaque color coverage in one coat, as described, and the color spread evenly across the lips without streaking. There was noticeable color in my lip lines when I looked up-close, though it was less apparent at a full view as the finish was quite shiny. This shade wore well for five and a half hours on me and was somewhat hydrating.

Pink Drank

Smashbox Pink Drank Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich pigmentation with a smooth-feeling gloss that spread comfortably across the lips. It applied fairly evenly with almost no streaking, but there was a bit of color that gathered in my lip lines. The texture was light-medium in thickness, not heavy, and moderately tacky. The hybrid lipstick/lipgloss lasted for five hours on me and was lightly hydrating.
