Unbridled

Smashbox Unbridled Be Legendary Prime and Plush Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a vivid, medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly to my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines, though it had a touch more slip than ideal.

The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy that was lightly hydrating to wear. It lasted well for four and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$24.00/0.14 oz. - $171.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "creamy" texture with "rich, pigment-packed color." The textures were smooth, creamy with light slip, and comfortable to apply in a fluid motion as they did not tug. Some shades were more satiny in their creaminess, while a couple felt more emollient and would likely benefit from a lip liner for better wear, though I did not experience any shades feathering/bleeding on me.

The pigmentation was semi-opaque to opaque with more shades being closer to opaque than not. They were typically buildable and weren't prone to emphasizing lip texture or gathering in my deeper lip lines. The lipstick wore between four and six hours and was hydrating while worn.

The formula had a faint, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste. I almost thought it was fragrance-free when I first tried to smell it as it was that faint.

Bawse

Smashbox Bawse Be Legendary Prime and Plush Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish with very faint pearl throughout. The lipstick had a smooth, lightly creamy consistency with light slip–enough to glide on but not to the point where the color slid around during wear.

It had rich pigmentation in a single stroke, which stayed on nicely for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt lightly moisturizing over time.

I like all three, but I don’t need orange lipsticks, I have Lady Danger and that is enough orange for me. I love the colour, but not so much on me.
Bing and Bawse are both beautiful. I want both but need none. I’m going to put them on my WL anyway, so I don’t forget about them should I ever run out of red lipsticks. 😉

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
