Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick!

Purchased by me


After ignoring the brand for a while, Smashbox is making its way back into my heart and my makeup bag with some of their wonderful products. I totally love the new Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palettes–see Golden Hour reviewed here.  And although the Be Legendary Lipsticks may not be new, they now have an astounding 120 shades! Inspired by their customer’s feedback, Smashbox has added rich and creamy reds, stunning pinks, sultry berries and super flattering neutrals in cream and matte finishes.

They have also provided an easy way to shop online by categorizing the finishes and the color family: pick your finish and then choose from pinks, violets & bolds, nudes, reds, corals, browns, berries and neutrals. No surprise, I went for the corals and chose Casita, a creamy papaya shade. It just short of a red coral–I’d call it a warm mix of orange/pink and coral. This is a great shade to brighten the face and for a pop of color if you’re otherwise wearing neutrals. There is very subtle sparkle that adds a nice sheen to Casita.

Be Legendary lipsticks are vibrant, highly pigmented and creamy. The creams have a lovely satin finish and soften and protect lips with shea butter + vitamins C and E. Mattes are vitamin-fortified and won’t dry out or settle unevenly on lips. They are also formulated without Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Phthalates, Fragrance & Talc. My only complaint is that are not as long lasting as I hoped they would be. You must reapply after a few hours but that is not a deal breaker for me–I wear lip gloss often and am used to reapplying.

Housed in a sleek. black square tube, each lipstick is .10 oz. of product for only $21. Based on Casita I will definitely be buying more shades of Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick.

Don’t forget about Smashcash! The program is pretty cool. You get points for purchases, one for every qualifying purchase along with free shipping and 2 free samples. There are 3 levels and the more you spend on an annual basis, the more perks you get.

    That’s a shade that I’d love too. I have one of their lipsticks in red, and it’s gorgeous. I need to wear it more.

  2. Wow they have quite the variety of colors! I like how bright vivid they are. I like that you can also get smash cash to use later! That’s pretty awesome!

  3. Jacqui Odell says

    I am not really into red colors, but I like how bright that one looks. Maybe I will give it a try instead of my normal brown.

  4. Those colors are lovely. The color that you picked is perfect for Spring and Summer! The lippies look so moist, perfect for avoiding dry and chapped lips.

  5. Paris Anderson says

    I have not tried Smashbox lipsticks. The color you choose looks amazing for spring and summer and 120 colors to choose from means there’s a color for everyone!

  6. 120 shades – holy cow!

  7. Perfect shade for you. It’s like they made it for you. I’ve always been a fan of Smashbox lip products – they aren’t fragranced and they feel good on.

    I have just started wearing lipstick more often, and I am loving these shades. I don’t normally stray far from a plain nude color, but there are some great colors here I would love to try.
