Makeup Review – Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip


I like to experiment with my lip colors for the simple fact I have full lips and they tend to draw a lot of attention on their own without me doing anything to them. Awesome.

Now let’s get down to business. Today, I’m test-driving the Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip in Brains N’ Bronze.

Ooh, that was a mouthful.


It glides on very smooth, and honestly, you don’t have to use very much. Now, that is not to say you don’t have to reapply throughout the day. I think I had to reapply one other time but that was mainly it. Not bad, huh?

Now, it is thick, so that’s a plus. However, the thickness of the cream can be too much for some. You might feel like you have heavy lips if you’re not used to it. Many consumers have complained how gooey and sticky the formula is. The color, I feel, makes up for it and it totally brightened my face!


Here’s another look inside:


Now that we’ve met the players and saw the game, what’s the score?


  • Available online and at Sephora, Ulta, and other beauty suppliers that carry the Smashbox brand.
  • Heavy pigmentation
  • Beautiful, vivid colors.
  • Long-lasting.
  • Glides on easily.
  • Very creamy.


  • It’s pricey – $24 USD. A definite splurge.
  • Consumers have complained how gooey and sticky it is.

All in all, I do recommend it but as I mentioned above, if you’re not used to heavy pigmented lip creams, this might not be for you.

I’m going to be reviewing a lot of lip colors, glosses, sticks, and what have you. If there’s something you want me to review, just drop a line in the comments and I hope to purchase it for review soon!
