Hello! Hope you're having a great day! I wanted to take a little more in-depth look at my new Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in the color Legendary!
I think this is their "iconic red" color (Smashbox describes it as a "true red"), and I can definitely see why!
Even though I was pretty much sold on the color alone, I was also super impressed at the performance of this lipstick. The Be Legendary lipsticks range in finishes from mattes to creams and I think this finish falls somewhere in the middle. It was very comfortable to wear (these lipsticks have "shea butter for lasting hydration and vitamins C and E to protect", according to the information on Sephora) and never looked dry or flakey. The wear-time was awesome; it lasted a good 6 hours before I noticed it fading, and that was with light eating and drinking. When it did start to fade, it did so evenly, so my lips never looked patchy or like I needed to reapply.
While the Be Legendary lipsticks are a little on the pricey side at $20, they definitely aren't the most expensive lipsticks out there. I'm not sure how all the different colors/finishes of this line perform, but I can say that if you're looking for a great red lipstick, definitely give this one a try!
Thanks for reading! <3
