Rose Magic

Smashbox Rose Magic Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a dark, coppery-red with warm undertones and a fine, metallic shimmer-sheen finish and a moderate shine. The texture was smooth, medium in thickness but light-medium in weight, and rather tacky (which I find consistent with this formula). It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly across my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. It wore well for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.27 oz. - $88.89 Per Ounce

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.

XO, Vlada

Smashbox XO, Vlada Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the color applied evenly on my lips without any streaking. The texture was smooth, moderately tacky, and medium in thickness but a touch of product gathered in my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance.. It stayed on well for five and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.

They look so nice on you, Christine, especially XO. Unfortunately, I can’t wear liquid metallics because they emphasize the wrinkles on my lips a LOT, but I can certainly appreciate how pretty they are on other people.

Since I may actually have enough lipsticks….um, but yeah, I love XO, Vlada. What to do, what to do? I would have previously been like: “I have to go try that one on!’ After watching xSparkage’s YT video late last night about people using testers and just how gross it really can be….I think I’ll just buy it. If I hate it on my face, back it goes.

(Leesha’s video on testers = Fear Factor)

I wore Rose Magic today and wasn’t sure I could pull it off both because of the shade and because of my gigantic lip lines but it was very pretty. I really liked wearing it. It didn’t settle into my lips lines but it certainly didn’t make them fade away. I was stunned by how the Pat MacGrath Luxe lippies made my lip lines look so diminished but I am getting better about accepting that at my age I am going to have lip lines and there won’t be any hiding them sometimes so wear what makes you happy. This is a happy shade!

Yes!
I find that if a products doesn’t settle in the lip lines I can wear it. I’ve had lip lines for quite a long time, but I don’t let that silly fact stop me from wearing what I like.
Rose Magic is a lovely colour and I’m sure you rock it!

Both of these are so pretty. Actually the entire collection is well coordinated and looks great on you. Happy colors!
