Tis the season for dark and vampy lips and this Smashbox liquid lippie in Girl Gang is ticking all of my boxes. Not only is the opaque plum colour totally gorgeous and impactful, but the formula is insanely good and makes me want to run out and buy the entire 20-strong range.
I know the whole world is all about liquid lipsticks right now but until very recently any I tried - apart from my beloved Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet - were disappointing, felt uncomfortable and looked dreadful as they wore off the lips. So this stuff was a revelation: despite being a really opaque matte, it felt rather comfy (it’s infused with Smashbox Primer Oil) and the colour looked fresh and vivid for several hours without needing to be touched up.
It was also much easier to remove than I’d anticipated: I had visions of getting it smeared all over my face, but a couple of swipes with an oil based remover (it’s water resistant) and it was gone. My lips were in decent nick afterwards, too, not shrivelled or dried out in the slightest.
I am crazy in love for the shade and desperately need to try more, including Chill Out which is a very interesting grey shade – I can just picture Mr Fluff’s face when I come down rocking that…
