Smashbox Bawse Deep Red: Always on Liquid Lipstick & Swatch

This statement is going to be weird to some people... but as a woman of colour I was very afraid of red lipsticks. I remember when I was experimenting and my mom used to tell me that those were not her favourite colours on me. If I listened to her I would’ve probably stopped wearing them but you know my social media family out there always told me that it looked great!
So I continued to try more colours.

Let me start off by saying liquid lipsticks over traditional lipsticks any day. This was my first time trying anything from Smashbox in a while (like 2010).

So I was excited to try out the Always on liquid lipstick in Bawse ($28.00 CAN) ** (which I received in a goodie bag from a blog event in 2017).

  • 8 hour
  • Liquid matte formula
  • Not drying
Smashbox Always on liquid lipstick in Bawse swatch

Bawse is a deep red that is perfect for a night out. It glides on smoothly- it doesn't drag or apply streaky like some liquid lipsticks. When applies it DOES NOT MOVE! This would have been the perfect colour for me to get married in! I applied it in a few layer for the swatch above and let me tell you. It took forever to come off. I used a wipe- oil based remover- soap (in that order) to get it off. Which isn't an issue to me because I love & need the staying power!

Another pro is the doe foot applicator. It takes a while to get the hang of liquid lipstick application in the beginning. Flashbacks to me unintentionally over lining my lips like a mad woman (smh). An applicator like this allows you to fill in your lips without that hassle.

Wouldn't this be a great Valentine red as well???
