Review: 5 Looks with Smashbox' Be Legendary Liquid Lip

I'm usually not a fan of high shine finishes for lipsticks because they feel sticky, but Smashbox' Be Legendary Liquid Lip makes my lips feel soft and plump. The formula is highly saturated and the vinyl-like finish creates fuller lips, as if I just got botox injections. It's not my everyday choice due to lipstick getting everywhere (while eating, drinking, putting on clothes etc.), but that's to be expected with any shiny or satin finish lipstick!

I decided to create 5 different wearable looks that were inspired by Smashbox Lip Editor-In-Chief Vlada Haggerty (@vladamua).

The 5 Different Looks

1) For the Space Bunny - Start with applying Iced Out on the outer parts of your lips, leaving the middle part for Space Case. The simplyteee take on an intergalactic look!

2) For the 90s Chick - Apply Girl, Please on your lips, then top it off with a bit of Brains 'N' Bronze for that metallic finish. Scary Spice would be jealous.

3) For the Bronzed Goddess - Line the outer parts of your lips with Bad B, then dab the middle with Petal Metal to finish off the look. For those with naturally tanned olive skin, this one's for you.

4) For the Innocent Girl Next Door - Apply Pink Drank all over your lips, and top it off with Mauve Squad in the middle for that extra plump! Elle Woods approved.

5) For the Indecisive Badass - Apply Brick Trick to half of your lips, and finish off the other half with Foiled Brat. Alice in Wonderland vibes with this look!

6) For the Girl Boss - Start with applying Bad Apple all over, and finish off with Moscow Muled on the middle parts of your lips. A different take on the classic red lip!
