Every woman is in search of the perfect lipstick: one that is not too creamy, not too dry, not too pigmented, but not too sheer. Well, I believe I have found a good balanced lipstick that you won't mind trying. It is Smashbox's Be Legendary Lipstick. I chose the color Honey.
The Be Legendary lipstick is long-wearing and feels moisturizing. The color Honey is a more natural shade. I have medium toned skin, and it pairs well with my skin tone. It is a great mix of pink and beige. It gives enough color so that the lipstick does not disappear into my skin tone or make my skin appear dull. The lipstick has a slight tacky, creamy feeling, which stays on your lips for hours. Now I am a great fan of MAC's lipstick, but I almost prefer this lipstick than MAC's lipstick since it stays on longer. There is a very slight vanilla scent, but it is almost undetectable. That is great for people who have allergies. I highly recommend this color if you are looking for a nude tone which won't wash you out. Plus, you will not be reaching for your Chapstick when you wear this lipstick! If you think the lipstick is too sheer for your taste, do not worry. Coverage is buildable and will remain natural looking even with the added coverage.
I love this lipstick, and will absolutely be buying more shades. As an added tip, if you find this lipstick to be too moisturizing, pat you lips with a little powder for an instant matte look.
