Desert Rose

Smashbox Desert Rose Always On Liquid Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark rosy copper with warm undertones and a matte, metallic finish. It was richly pigmented and yielded even, opaque coverage in a single layer. The liquid lipstick was thin but not watery with enough slip to spread across my lips without being too hard to control. This shade lasted well for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.13 oz. - $184.62 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to "stay put for up to eight hours" and "won't flake, bleed, or feather" with "rich, lightweight color." It is a comfortable, thinner liquid lipstick formula that dries down to a matte finish. The texture is thin with enough slip to glide and spread well across my lips for even, smooth coverage that typically lasted between six and eight hours. The formula was usually non-drying.

In Bloom

Smashbox In Bloom Always On Liquid Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with strong, warm undertones and a matte, metallic finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, and the consistency was thin, non-clingy, and spreadable without being overly fluid, so it was easy to get even coverage and crisp edges. It dried down and set to a transfer-proof finish that was comfortable to wear. The color stayed on well for six and a half hours and was non-drying.

XO, Vlada

Smashbox XO, Vlada Always On Liquid Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with warm undertones and a matte, metallic finish. It had good color coverage, though it needed a half of a layer m ore for truly opaque coverage. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and thin initially and then dried down to a transfer-proof finish that didn’t feel clingy. Usually, metallic finishes can emphasize my lip lines quite a bit but this did not exaggerate them. It wore well for six hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.13 oz. - $184.62 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to "stay put for up to eight hours" and "won't flake, bleed, or feather" with "rich, lightweight color." It is a comfortable, thinner liquid lipstick formula that dries down to a matte finish. The texture is thin with enough slip to glide and spread well across my lips for even, smooth coverage that typically lasted between six and eight hours. The formula was usually non-drying.

In Bloom is gorgeous!!! I haven’t had luck with metallic lip products in the past because they emphasize the wrinkles in my lips too much, so I’d be afraid to buy this. But it is so beautiful, I’m feeling a little tempted…

These are so unbelievably pretty!!! Probably a tad too reflective metallic for me, but still. My favorite out of these is In Bloom. That one is drop-dead gorgeous!
