Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick

New for spring 2012 are some new lipsticks by Smashbox called Be Legendary.

These beauties come in twenty-two creamy colors and two finishes: lustrous and matte. The three I have for you today are all creamy, very moisturizing with Shea Butter, and have a really nice shiny finish. No scent or taste to speak of either.

I kind of love the black square tubes they come in. A nice departure from your standard round bullet shape. Oh and easy to line up in a drawer!

The colors are pretty rich and feel very nice going on. Creamy, smooth, moisturizing and a nice sheen to them. You can layer them also for more coverage if you want.

Melondrama is a gorgeous shade of peachy melon. Totally, utterly perfect for spring, I LOVE this one.

Mandarin is a pretty reddish orange shade. Very juicy looking!

Vivid Violet is a pinkish violet shade. It’s not overly dark or weird looking on pale skin, which is great.

These are really nice lipsticks! I love the texture, they feel really comfortable on my lips and give a nice wash of build-able color.
