I was treating myself to some birthday treasures with gift cards that I was given to Sephora. My favourite cosmetic item is lipstick, so I decided to by some new lippys, ones from companies that I have not yet tried. Smashbox was one of those companies. As I was browsing the lipstick fixture and a Sephora exclusive caught my eye.
From the Be Legendary Lipstick collection, I choose Legendary, a true red. The very first thing I notice is the feel of the matte case. Completely square in shape, it feels like metal. Heavy and cold. I swivel up the lipstick and apply, starting at the top bow of my lip. It's riche and creamy, packed with shea butter and vitamins E and C. It does not take many coats to become opaque and I notice it's very shiny and does not require gloss, not that I would add any, anyway. The colour stays true, and the blue undertone never feathers off my lips nor does it change - that shade stays tube true and lasts for hours.
Legendary retails for $19 and is available online at Sephora.com and in the larger 'Flagship' Sephora stores. This red has a faint blue undertone that gives it a poppy-rose tone, making it perfect year round. No liner for Spring / Summer and a rich liner for a deep Fall / Winter winner. I rate this lipstick 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Have you tried any of the shades from the Legendary collection?
