#3 Best seller “Always on liquid lipstick” from Smashbox !

I always get very excited when I know my next post is going to be the topic I really love from the bottom of my heart is Lipsticks. So without further ado let’s jump into it.

Smashbox’s ‘Always On Liquid Lipstick’ Bawse, Out Loud & Baja Bound

A liquid matte lipstick infused with primer oil complex. A non-drying formula that is so opaque and insanely pigmented. A matte finish which so comfortable on lips and waterproof. On top of it, it has a list of huge fan followers. It is a “Cruelty-free” brand. The price is $24 (USD).

What I really think about these liquid lipsticks.

Bawse – It is a beautiful, gorgeous, and “must-have” deep red! Be ready for that ‘red carpet’ look…Yes! I must say, after trying Bawse my obsession for ‘Mac ruby woo’ has lessened for some reason. I would suggest people who are into Reds and haven’t tried this one…please go and grab ‘BAWSE’! It will never disappoint you. Such a universally flattering red shade and will suit all skin tones.

Basically, When I tried to compare it with Mac ‘ruby woo’, I could see that ‘Bawse’ is the winner! Although Smashbox is pricey and has earned its perks by offering an excellent color pay off. One swipe is fully packed with intense color, so lightweight and flawless.

OUT LOUD – A deep orange shade and I never ever thought that this shade would be the best discovery of my life ……. I don’t know why it took me so long to get my hands on this liquid lipstick. Omg! when I first tried it on my lips I was like…Huhh! where was I this whole time before the pandemic…And now since I have found this gorgeous shade…I have to wear a mask every time I step outside the house. However, I am happy that finally I got into orange and not just limited to pink, coral, fuscia ‘n’ reds etc,.

Such a pretty burnt orange so opaque and lightweight with the beautiful color pay off. This shade is for all my beauties who are thinking to invest in some different shades. It is definitely going to suit you irrespective of different skin tones. Again this is a matte formula but not over-drying. 

BAJA BOUND – A pink coral shade that is bright yet gives a very soft look. Recently I have updated my profile picture on WordPress there I am wearing this shade. As per my opinion, it’s not that unique shade and I am definitely not going to recommend it unless you want to spend $24(USD) on it. Being said that, NYX soft matte liquid lipsticks have a wide array of color collections and one particular shade “Antwerp” is similar (but not same) to this shade. Luckily, I have been using it for years so I know it is irreplaceable.

Anyway, Let’s come back to Baja Bound. Again, it is the same lightweight matte formula. Super opaque with excellent color pay off. But guys, I think this shade will look beautiful on light to medium skin tone and my beauties between tan to deeper skin tone, it may wash you out. But as I always say that there are no strict rules for wearing make so suit yourself and feel free to try it.

My final thoughts !

The formula is quite thick & matte once dry so dry/chapped lips beware!. Please exfoliate and prep-prime before application or else, it may settle into fine lines and end up looking like “Zombie’s lips”..ha ha ha !!!

These liquid lipsticks are best if planning to wear often (but not occasionally) in order to utilize the product as much as possible. Else it might end up getting dry or cloggy in a container and then you won’t be able to use it anymore. The game is over!

Seems, these are long-lasting, waterproof, and stays put for pretty much considerable time but not sure if it will survive throughout the day. A quick touch up might be needed. 

My most recommendable color is ‘BAWSE’.

Pigmented lips like mine. These lippies are boon for us! Grab any color you like!

So yes! I would recommend it to my friend and family to buy specific/selected shades!

Please share your thoughts n comments and let me know if you like matte liquid lipsticks too!

Thank you and Namaste !

My top 3 Mac lipsticks for all skin tones

Hello my beautiful friends !

Let’s talk on very interesting topic today and yess! as you read the caption it’s “Lipstick”. No matter how old we are, no matter if we are Dark ,Brown or white & no matter if we are beginner or professional it will always find its way to our vanity or most of the time in a hand purse. It has earned its place in our heart so on the lips. Look at just any lip products you own even if sitting ideally you will definitely want to swatch it. I know I know ! it’s Tempting. Anyway, time to dig into it.

Before we start I would like tell all my friends that that MAC Lipsticks offer different types of finishes/textures so always recommendable to understand it when you add it in your shopping cart. Some formulas glides so beautifully on lips that it takes us straight to Hawaii & some are so true to its nature specially Retro Matte lipsticks that it needs a lot of efforts to apply it but results are amazing though. No doubt !!!!

Mac Diva

If somebody is already following Mac lipsticks then they will probably laugh at me as Mac Diva is already into the “Limelight” so what’s the point reviewing it now ? yeah I get it girls but every opinion counts so let’s continue. It is an intense reddish- burgundy color as described on the company website but for me it looks like a dark burgundy berry color with a matte finish. It has a huge fan followers across the world. It is the most beautiful & sought after Lipstick from Mac and will take your style swag to the next level. At the same time it is very dark color so some of you might think its a vampy color and I am totally agree with you!LoL!. All skin tone can pull it off it is so comfortable matte on the lips such a luxurious formula and excellent color pay off in a single swipe. Oh! I love to see this one particularly on my brown and dark beauties I can’t take my eyes off it is so irresistible. Formula is long lasting but might need a touch up after 6 hours or so as it’s a creamy matte.

Mac Ruby Woo

This one is the iconic red lipstick which will suit all skin tones without any second thought and have won so many “best lipstick awards” being popular shade it has always been a talk of the town. Such a unique vivid cherry red with blue undertone and again bestseller from Mac. It is a Retro Matte finish lipstick & has opaque application and thus name says it all a very matte or one can say a true matte. Lips to be Prepped n Prime before applying retro matte is advisable that too with a lip liner just to avoid feathering or else it will give you a very hard time for application. Believe me I have tried it in the past without exfoliation and it was totally gross! no one wants to be seen with cracked or chapped lips having lippy on, but look at the brighter side if you get a chance try this one in the store, must have lipsticks guys I bet other girls will envy you after all “lips don’t lie”. Who needs a retouch-up, matte formulas often comes to the rescue so yeah its quite long lasting.

Mac Relentlessly Red

Now this one I do not wear as frequently as needed because I always get stuck between other reds , pinks and burgundies but this one is another bestseller from Mac. Bold and beautiful bright pinkish coral fuchsia retro matte alluring people to stare at your lips. Yes ! that bright and coral plays its magic giving you a fashionista look all the time(AM/PM). Fair to medium,Brown or dark skin tone can easily pull it off being said the shade will show its true color/hues as it is very pigmented n so rich in color. Recommended to try it in the store to check the vibrancy of it, completely a showstopper. However, Relentlessly red is a warm tone lipstick and the formula is little more drying compare to other retro matte so exfoliating lips prior to application is “must”.

All these Lipstick’s retail price is $19 (US dollar) and it is in their permanent line. Swatches of it are shown below and I’ve tried my best to take the natural colors of it.

Swatches from Left Mac Relentlessly Red, Mac Ruby Woo, Mac Diva

I know lip swatches are more appealing than a hand swatches so going to update the post soon. Stay safe stay healthy!!!

Thank you so much !
