Summer is on its way and after months of going make-up free or neutral, I’ve dug out my favourite summer brights. Here’s a current favourite which I can’t believe I’ve not reviewed before.  It’s the Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick in Electric Pink.


It’s a matte finish but isn’t as drying as other matte lipsticks I’ve tried. The formula is smooth and glides smoothly over lips without dragging and highlighting dry patches on my lips. I have a much darker upper lip but one coat covers it well and you can only see a slight hint of that coming through.

I’ve had this lipstick for ages now but have barely worn it as I’ve been rocking the liquid lipsticks for the past 12-18 months. The Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick is tempting me back to bullet lipsticks, but with coverage like that, I’m not complaining.

Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick is available from any Smashbox counter in Boots stores nationwide, and is priced at £17.
