Smashbox Always On Matte Lipstick | Review

I adore liquid lipsticks, they are one of my favourite beauty products to try out. I had been meaning to try one from Smashbox for a while and finally decided on the shade Babe Alert.


There are 20 shades to choose from in the Always On Liquid Lipstick range, for £19 each. This nude rose shade is described on as:

Perfected on-set in our L.A. photo studio, our long-wear, water-resistant liquid lipstick features Advanced Polymer Technology that makes it stay put and look as fresh and flawless as your first swipe for up to 8 hours. Featherweight but fierce, this liquid matte formula is infused with lip-smoothing Primer Oil complex for suede-soft lip color in 20 super-rad shades.
It’s smudge-proof, budge-proof and non-feathering. Because really, who has time for touch-ups?
The only matte liquid lipstick infused with Smashbox Primer Oil complex to keep it comfortable. Advanced Polymer Technology makes it stay put and look as fresh and flawless as the first swipe. Precision tip applicator lines and fills with one swipe of our no-drop reservoir. Budge-proof, non-feathering and water-resistant.

Whilst the formula doesn’t have a distinct smell, it is really easy to apply. The tip on the applicator makes it really easy to apply, especially on the cupids bow.  The formula doesn’t dry down immediately so there is time to correct if any mistakes are made.

As far as liquid lipsticks go, this one is one of my favourite formulas, right after Anastasia Beverly Hills, it doesn’t make my lips look dry or cakey. It just sits on top nicely without looking heavy. Always On has great longevity, whilst I haven’t worn it for 8 hours, it can be layered when reapplying after eating/drinking without looking crusty or being super drying.


I love this lipstick, it ticks all the boxes when it comes to liquid lipsticks and I defiantly am looking to add a few more to my collection! It is my perfect everyday shade! Thank you so much for reading! What’s your favourite liquid lipstick?

Until next time!

    I’ll maybe have to try this! I’ve been loving wearing liquid lipsticks because they last for a lot longer and I work long hours, but when eating some of them just crack and then it’s very difficult to remove it entirely and if I try to reapply it, it’s a bigger mess. If you say this doesn’t happen with this smashbox one, I’ll have to give it go! this colour is beautiful on me, btw! x

    That’s such a pretty shade on you! I’ve been meaning to try these for ages, I’ve disliked a lot of the liquid lipsticks I’ve tried because you just can’t reapply at all – so frustrating! Everyone has such positive things to say about these ones though! Xx
