Smashbox Lip Gloss Orchid
Today I have come up with one more review of this lustrous and cute looking Lip gloss of Brand Smashbox. This product has gained quite a good reviews from bloggers abroad and when I saw it on drugstore.com where it was available in a set of 5 I jumped for the deal.You can get these 5 lip glosses in just $20 albeit it cost $80 separately. I took out the orchid shade 2 days back as it appealed to me a bit.You will find below the swatches of the color Orchid and also some pics of how it finally looks like onmy lips 🙂 So lets jump !!!

About Smashbox Lip Gloss
How I apply Smashbox Lip Gloss Shade Orchid
I apply this lip gloss in two ways -Â first by making an outline by pencil lip liner of same shade and then filling in with this Lip Gloss.
Secondly, by applying on the top of your lipstick as gloss.Topping with lipgloss brings out an entirely different shade and experience and sometimes makes my boring matte lipstick a little interesting 🙂 By the way I will be wearing the same lip gloss in my next youtube video so you can keep a watch there as well 🙂
Price: I bought this for 20$ as a set. I got it from Drugstore.com (doesn’t ship to India) and I got it through someone.
Packaging: So this gloss comes in a rectangular cuboid glass tube with a dark black roll on cap. like the picture shown. An sponge applicator is attached with the cap which helps in smooth application of gloss. This package is leakage proof.
My experience with Smashbox Lip Gloss Shade Orchid
Texture: The texture is not that sticky which I like. I completely detest sticky lip glosses and the best part is that it has a very subtle color. The gloss easily glides on the lips and will give a fuller look.
Color: As I stated above the color of gloss is very subtle and sober. A single swipe will give you sweet sober not so colored and simple look.
Shade is vivid violet and one can easily carry this color for sober and simple look and also at your office with formals. Smashbox Orchid color is quite rich in terms of deftness of shade.
Pigmentation: Earlier I thought that it won’t be pigmented but they have proved me pretty wrong. This Smashbox lip gloss is extremely great in terms of pigmentation. Two swipes and you will get the exact color you have bought the product for.
My take: I liked the product because of its dual use and pigmentation. The staying is also decent as it stayed on my pigmented lips for two hours without any meal in between. The doe foot applicator is good and easy to work with. It glides smoothly and has great finish. Also its not very sticky and doesn’t leaves any residue like other lip glosses. It’s pretty hot right now and it doesn’t bleed so that another of its advantage.
What I like about Smashbox Lip Gloss?

What I do not like about Smashbox Lip Gloss?
I am not a fan of lipglosses but I still like this one .Didn’t find any thing to dislike till now. I won’t consider price discouraging as Smashbox is a high end brand.
