"Put on some lipstick and pull yourself together" - Elizabeth Taylor
There is something powerful about swiping on your favorite bold lipcolor and stepping out of homes, cars, & bathrooms with a fresh coat of sass. I'm not one for matte lip products, not for their appearance but for the sheer fact that they're almost always uncomfortable; they pull, crack, dry, and feel heavy on my lips. That being said, I'm a sucker for creams, satins, & glosses, anything moisturizing, and that's why I just had to try Smashbox's highly-rated Be Legendary Liquid Lips. And let me tell you...
Oh. My. Goodness. Gracious. New favorite lip product! It's the strangest cross between a lip stain, lip gloss, and lipstick, most likely the reason Smashbox stopped its title at "Lip...". It possesses the strong pigment and velvety cream of a high-end lipstick but is packed into a cylindrical gloss container complete with a doe-foot applicator stick. I kid you not when I say this is one of THE most comfortable lip products I've ever worn, and it's incredibly durable without the need for lipliner.

So as you can see, these shades are rich! Pigmented, glossy, thick but moveable, everything you could want in a lip color. The first two shades, Petal Metal & Mauve Squad, are in Smashbox's Liquid Metals line and are typically used as toppers (as shown in the final two photos above) and the last two shades, Bad B & Bad Apple, are a part of their Liquid Pigment line. Wear them alone, and they hold their own beautifully. Put them together, and they're the perfect dynamic duo; the Laverne & Shirley, the Lucy & Ethel, the Thelma & Louise of lipstick.
