One of the easiest ways to switch up your makeup routine is to change up your lipstick. Just as the seasons change, so do our wardrobes and so should our makeup… or lipstick rather!
I’ll admit, I tend to forget about all the beautiful shades in between nude and classic red (remember, I’m a lip balm kind of girl) and I typically don’t splurge on any lipstick or lip products altogether. I’m known to find a shade that looks good, and wear it until it’s gone before purchasing another. But after discovering this smashbox lipstick set, I realized the value of trying a variety of shades and, more importantly, just how beautiful a deep plum or burgundy lip can be this time of year to provide a complementary contrast to winter’s dark wardrobe.
This collection includes 6 shades of mini size lipsticks (Famous (pink neutral), Audition (neutral rose), Primrose (mauve pink), Fig (red grape), Witchy (deep burgundy), Legendary (true red)) and a matte lipstick transformer, which I’ve yet to even try. I love that I get to try a variety of shades within this set without spending the money for the regular sizes.
The satin-smooth formula allows each color to glide on evenly and the moisturizing recipe helps to protect and soften lips with shea butter, vitamin C & E, and it lasts a decently long time. Though I truly enjoy all the colors within this set, the shade “Fig” has been my all-time favorite so far. I’ve received many compliments on how well it pairs with my pale, olive skin tone.
