Smashbox Limitless Lip Stain in Sangria

I don't have a lot of luck with lipstains, as a lot of  them have the nasty habit of being a bit too blue, and just showing up as fuchsia when they're on the skin or lips, no matter what the shade promised on the box or barrel.  So I approached the new Smashbox limitless lipstains with no little trepidation. This is the shade "Sangria".  Some of you who follow me on Twitter may find this amusing.

Based on a marker pen bullet-tip - you use the pointed end to line your lips, then turn it so you can fill in the rest of your lips with the side of the bullet - the Limitless Lipstain differs from it's current rivals by having a coloured balm on the end, to intensify the shade and make it more comfortable in wear.

Delighted by the swatches, that show this to be a deep, rich and highly pigmented red, from the marker I couldn't wait to try this on my lips, where things just got better:

Perfect blood-red lips with no feathering, I couldn't really love this shade any more.

Or could I? Well, I could only love it more if it lasted longer.  I wore this through a recent breakfast meeting, and it was defeated by half a plate of scrambled eggs, leading to a Red Ring of Doom situation ... so bear in mind, this may need reapplying if you're planning to do anything with your lips besides pouting during the day ...

Smashbox products can be difficult to find, but you can usually find them in Debenhams, and you can definitely find them on QVC.

The Fine Print: This popped up in a recent goody bag.  But I love the colour so much I'll be purchasing a backup.  I'll just have to give up eating eggs.

  1. That is indeed a gorgeous colour... I'll keep my eye out for it!

  2. I'm sorry but as lovely as that lip color is, nothing is worth giving up a proper plate of eggs for =D

  3. I recommended these to a friend, they are like the old MAC lip stains that are discontinued -great entry!x


Thanks, I love hearing from you!
