Smashbox Chai Be Legendary LipstickSmashbox Chai Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good color coverage that applied without tugging on the lips, as the texture was lightly creamy without feeling heavy or moving easily. This shade felt more emollient than some shades, so the finish was glossier. It was moderately moisturizing over the four hours it wore for, but I did have a bit of color settle into lip lines over time. MAC Well Bred Brown (DC, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).
