Think Pink with Smashbox lips

Not enough attention is given to pink lips but I want to change that. Actually I want to give attention to all things pink therefore you’ll start seeing my THINK PINK posts with some favorite pink cosmetic items.

I’m starting with Smashbox because they’ve created my new favorite lip product and with luck they sent it to me. I really wouldn’t have known about it if Smashbox hadn’t sent today’s goodies.

SMASHBOX BE LEGENDARY LONG WEAR LIP LACQUER in FLUSHED has become my sidekick or “lip kick” lately. This liquid lipstick is with me every day. There’s something about this that has grabbed my heart. Basically I’m a lipstick girl. I like gloss and used to wear them constantly but as I’ve gotten older I’m more excited about lipstick. The Lip Lacquer has the best of both worlds. It feels like a lipstick on and yet it has a shine to it like a gloss. It’s moisturizing and not the least bit sticky.

The Be Legendary Lip Lacquers ($24) are available in 20 shades so even though I’m a pink person I’m guessing you’ll find one that’s just right for your red, coral, nude or wine passion. FLUSHED is described as a ‘soft rose gold’ on Sephora but I find it to be a cool but not cold pink that looks right with just about everything. These are long lasting and they say you’ll get 8 hours wear out of them. I don’t get 8 hours wear out of anything but I can get almost that far if I don’t eat, drink or kiss!

As a lipstick lover I have always loved Smashbox lipsticks. It was one of the first brands I binged on. Their lipsticks are smooth, moisturizing, don’t settle in the lines on my lips and best of all they are fragrance-free. My experience with BE LEGENDARY LIPSTICK in POUT ($20) has been wonderful. It’s a bubblegum pink which may not work for everyone but it’s the pink of my dreams. I have some natural tint to my lips and I don’t feel washed out when wearing Pout. Smashbox lipsticks contain Shea Butter for moisture and Vitamins C and E for protection.

To change things up and make these lipsticks and lip lacquers more versatile there’s Smashbox ALWAYS SHARP LIP LINER ($20) that comes in 16 shades. I have both Crimson (for my grown up lips) and Shocking Pink that helps deepen my bubble gum lips to something more ladylike. Crimson is a blue red while Shocking Pink is a vibrant hot pink.

I love that these twist up and I’ll never have to worry about breaking them with a sharpener. These are water resistant too. I like to line first, fill in and then blot that down. Next I’ll apply the lipstick or lip lacquer. This is how I get any longevity. When the lip color starts wearing away, I still have a stain left.

Three great lip products, four great colors and one pair of lips that love to wear pink = success. Have you treated yourself to any Smashbox lip products lately? — Marcia
