Crimson Chrome

Smashbox Crimson Chrome Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium ruby red with fine, red pearl. The pearl was similar in tone compared to the base color, which gave it a stronger metallic sheen–it looked more foil-like than other shades. The consistency was smooth, not too thick or heavy but more substantial on the lips than your average gloss, with some tackiness. It was intensely pigmented with a bit of color that sat in my lip lines, though I did not notice that at a normal viewing distance. The color stayed on well for over six hours and was slightly 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.

Brains 'n' Bronze

Smashbox Brains ‘n’ Bronze Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a rich, reddish brown with warm undertones and copper and gold pearl that give it a more metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer with a smooth, light-medium weight texture. There was moderate tackiness that developed further tackiness over the five and a half hours it lasted. The formula of this shade had more slip than others, so it appeared both wet and glossy applied and had more color that settled in my lip lines. It was lightly hydrating.

Mauve Squad

Smashbox Mauve Squad Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rose gold with warm, brown undertones and fine, pink and gold pearl. It had medium coverage in one layer, which was somewhat buildable, but the formula has a thicker feel on the lips that applying much more did seem like overdoing it and made it more prone to sliding around/feeling heavy. The color applied evenly, though there was a bit of color that sat in my lip lines (which, again, wasn’t quite as noticeable at a normal viewing distance as the finish was so shiny). This was one of the shorter wearing shades at four and a half hours.

Foiled Brat

Smashbox Foiled Brat Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and plum, violet, and red pearl. It had almost opaque coverage in a single layer with even application. The texture was smooth with moderate tackiness, and there was some color that welled in my lip lines from the start, though it did not worsen and wasn’t apparent at a normal viewing distance with the high-shine finish. It lasted for six hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Foiled brat is STUNNING, same with Mauve Squad!!

I’ll have to swatch these and see how tacky they are to me!! With my hip length curly hair, I have to be careful with tacky gloss 😛

I’m not the biggest fan of glossy finishes, but I have to admit that these glosses (or lipsticks?) are gorgeous! I certainly wouldn’t turn down Crimson Chrome and Foiled Brat.

Beautiful!!!! I especially love Foiled Brat and Crimson Chrome, they are super shiny and richly pigmented. Mauve Squad is gorgeous, but I think I’ve got too many dupes for it!

These look beautiful on you Christine!I saw a Utube video on these and Tati lip swatched the whole collection and they are so pretty.I can’t wait to try them.Vlada MUA collaborated with Smashbox to create these!
