Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick: *Entire collection swatch & review*


Hi beauties!

Smashbox Cosmetics was kind enough to send me the ENTIRE collection of their *new* “Always On Matte Liquid Lipsticks”. There are 19 shades in total and they come in a beautiful array of shades to fit every skin tone. They claim to have an 8 hour wear with a comfortable and “featherweight” formula. They retail for USD$24.00//CAD$28.00 each. You can purchase them at Sephora (in stores & online) & on the Smashbox website and other retail stores that carry the brand.




Youtuber “Lilly Singh” came out with her own personal shade in the collection called “Bawse”. It’s a beautiful deep red in Smashbox’s lovely formula!





I really love the applicator of the liquid lipsticks. It’s different from your typical doe-foot applicator in that this one is a bit thinner and has a bit of a point at the end of it which really makes for an easier and more precise application.


Here are swatches of each shade:

From top to bottom, left to right: Bawse, Stepping Out, Big Spender, Driver’s Seat, Bang-Bang, Dream Huge, Girl Gang, Chill Zone, True Grit, Miss Conduct, Babe Alert, Baja Bound, Shockaholic, Thrill Seeker, Blast Off, In Demand, Some Nerve, Out Loud, Disorderly


Bawse – deep red (Lilly Singh “iisuperwomanii”)

Stepping Out deep nude

– Phthalates

I have to say I really love the formula of these liquid lipsticks. They are soo comfortable on the lips compared to other liquid lipsticks. These are super pigmented and opaque but they literally melt into your lips and don’t crack or make your lips feel tight or uncomfortable. As for the 8 hour wear… I would say if you’re not eating or drinking anything they will last quite long but I noticed that when I ate or drank they did come off but they didn’t flake off which is a good sign. They’re not the most transfer-proof liquid lipstick out there but I feel that’s what makes it so comfortable to wear. Overall I really love the formula and recommend it to those of you who dislike liquid lipsticks because of the uncomfortable and dry feeling most of them tend to have. I love the shade range as well and would love to see more from this formula! Let me know your thoughts and if you have your eyes on any shades in particular!


XO Julia ❤
