Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig. Winters in India are almost over. Yes, it may take a month or so for weather to get warmer. But for me, winter has just begun. And it is severe and going to last till April. So, I am fully justified in buying winter appropriate colors and reviewing them as well.
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig is a complete winter lipstick with its gorgeous shade and hydrating feel. Let us see though did I like it or not. 🙂

My take on Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig:
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick comes in 20 lovely shades. The finishes range from both matte to creamy. Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig belongs to the latter category of finish. The shade is described as red grape by the company. I feel it is more berry toned than a wine shade. However, it does have red undertones. A beautiful neutral-toned berry shade with reddish undertones is an apt shade for winters.
Generally, dark colors are worn with simple eye makeup. But I like to experiment and hence, have been wearing this shade with both simple and colorful eye look. In fact, I feel it looks stunning with cool-undertoned shades on eyes.
Texture: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig is ultra creamy and goes on almost-smooth on lips. It just tugs a bit while applying. But once on the lips, it feels very light and super hydrating. It has a glossy shine to it because of its creamy texture. It also transfers but not very much.
Pigmentation: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig has opaque pigmentation. One swipe gets you beautiful color on the lips.
Staying Power: Since its creamy, I expected it to not last very long. Well, I was half correct. 😉 It lasts for 3-4 hours and leaves a stain behind after meals and drinks.
Packaging: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig comes in a very sleek packaging. The lipstick outer packaging is not shaped round as other lipsticks. It is a square black packaging with shiny finish. The name of the shade is mentioned below the cap.
What I like about Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig:
- Perfect shade for winters.
- Berry red shade with neutral undertones.
- Very creamy texture.
- Feels hydrating on the lips.
- Glossy shine.
- Will suit almost all skin tones.
- Intense pigmentation.
- Applies evenly.
- Sleek packaging.
What I do not like about Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig:
- Average lasting power.
- Transfers a bit.
- Unavailable in India.
Final Impression: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Fig is slowly becoming my go-to lipstick in this winter. Though I am not very fond of shine in lipsticks, I love the creamy and hydrating formula. Gorgeous berry shade just makes it more attractive. Highly recommended for dark shade lovers!!!
