There is something about red lipstick that can add instant glamour to any outfit! I don’t know about you but when I think ‘glamour’, red lips is one of the first things that always comes to mind! … they just seem to go hand in hand! Which is why I truly believe every girl should have the perfect red lipstick for those days when you want an instant pick me up and/or to ‘wow’ all those who come in sight of you. I actually found this one a few weeks ago and have been addicted to it ever since! It’s the Smashbox ‘Be Legendary’ lipstick in the colour ‘Legendary’ … and let’s just say the name sums it up pretty well!
First of all … Don’t you just love how the sleek, straight lines of the tube just make this lipstick look so chic!? It’s not one of the reasons why I love it … but it definitely is a bonus!
Why I love this lipstick!:
First, It’s highly pigmented with a matte but slightly glossy finish in the perfect shade of ‘true red’ that has just the right amount of blue to make it extremely flattering! … I have a ‘light’ to ‘olive’ complexion but I’m sure it would look good on almost any skin tone!
Second, it’s packed with goodies for our lips like Shea butter for moisture and Vitamin C and E to act as antioxidants! If you read my blog you would know that I love multi-tasking products and I always prefer to wear makeup that work to improve features on the inside while enhancing features on the outside. I think it’s especially important to have hydrated lips when wearing any bold coloured lipstick because if you have any bit of dry or chapped skin it will show through immediately! (See more Tips To Perfecting Your Bold Coloured Pout here.) … Having a lipstick that hydrates and moisturizes ensures that you won’t have this problem and that your lips will always look soft and smooth … Which is exactly what this one does for me!
