I have a love hate relationship with liquid lipsticks. I love them because of their long staying power but hate the drying formula. Finding a liquid lipstick that doesn’t dry out lips but stay on for a long time is a challenge. However I overlook the drying part if the shade is amazing, just like Smashbox Bawse Always On Liquid Lipstick. The shade was launched by Youtube Star Lilly Singh.
Packaging is simple see through plastic tube with black cap. I like the applicator which is pointed and gives precise application.
Texture & Formula – The formula is not too runny or thick, it has just the right consistency. I like how it gives opaque finish without layering. It sets within few seconds of application and stays on for a long time. I like how despite of being liquid lipstick its not that drying or uncomfortable.
Smash box Bawse goes on smoothly and evenly. It doesn’t get gloopy or lumpy and gives smooth application in one stroke.
Pigmentation – The formula is very pigmented. I have uneven lip tone but the color covers the pigmentation well in one stroke. I always apply a lip liner so that the application look precise and neat.
Staying Power – 8 hours claim of the brand is true. I can see the lipstick on for good 7+ hours without much fading.
