As I’ve mentioned in this previous post I am a lip gloss girl. I’ve slowly transitioned to the shiny, sticky liquid-in-a tube over the last few years. I’ll switch up my routine at times though and go back to lipsticks when I need my color to last longer than an hour without re-applying. My biggest pet peeve when it comes to lipsticks is that they make my lips dry and flaky… definitely not a look I want to be sporting.
My latest and greatest find though has me rethinking lipsticks. I picked up the Smashbox Photo Finish lipstick during my last visit to the mecca of makeup… aka… Sephora. I was eying another lip gloss (of course) when the Smashbox makeup artist recommended I give this lipstick a shot… and I have to say I love it. The lipstick feels very smooth on my lips and makes my pout feel silky and moisturized. Best part is… the color is long lasting and I don’t have to re-apply after an hour. The lipstick comes in two formulas… cream and sheer. If you pick the cream lipstick and you like the shine that you get with a lip gloss I would recommend to add a dab of gloss at the center of your lips because the lipstick itself is not very shiny, even though it’s advertised that way. The collection has a wide variety of colors but my favorites are Splendid and Beautiful… both are warm peachy colors that can be worn day and night.
