Smashbox Megatint Long Wear Lip Color is new for spring 2013 and these lightweight lippies come in six shades.
These are the first lip tints from Smashbox, but they are definitely more pigmented than a traditional “tint”. They are developed with 40% water which I TOTALLY noticed when applying them. It was actually really neat (ewww who uses that word anymore?), they felt really cooling and slick and I kept thinking it was in my mind until I read about them more.
They have a long wear formula and are supposed to last 8 hours or so.
Mimosa, Punch, Cerise
Mimosa is a coral shade.
Punch is a bright cool-toned fuchsia.
Cerise is a cherry red.
Overall: I really love the texture of these because the water effect is really obvious, and they feel pretty comfy on the lips. I haven’t worn them for a full day yet so not sure about the 8 hour claim yet. They are nicely pigmented, not like a lipstick would be, but more than a normal tint. You can build them up a little bit, but they still look more like a pretty stain.
Pricing: $20.00 for 0.05 oz.
What do you think about these? Do you like lighter tinted lips for summer or prefer super saturation or gloss?
Note: Not cruelty free
