Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

I got a sample of the Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick and while I’m not always a fan of matte this one feels nicer than most I’ve tried.


What’s to love?

I’m a huge fan of the Smashbox brand so it’s no surprise that I like the Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick.

This long-lasting matte is very easy to apply and dries quickly without feeling super dry on my lips. Like I said usually matte liquids dry and shrivel my lips but this one looks nice and plump which I love. The pigmentation is also amazing. I had zero patchy spots and compete coverage in one swipe.

The lip gloss smells like cookies which is nice and it’s free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

The funny thing is I have no idea what shade this is! I got this sample last Summer and the shade is not listed on the tube. However I think it might be Deep Orange which is sold out at Sephora so it might have been a Summer color.

Overall I think this is my new favorite matte liquid!


I do like the look of the matte texture but just for fun I added a little Eclissare Color Eclipse ColorGlass Lip Gloss for some shine. I think both looks are nice.

Full-Sized Price: $24

    I got this in my PLAY! box the other month but haven’t worn it much. The formula sounds fab so I must give it a try! Thanks for the swatches too 🙂

  2. Liquid lipsticks always dry and shrivel my lips too! This sounds like a great product.

  3. Great color! Matte lipsticks dry me out a bit too much.

  4. I love the color on you. I just cannot do mattes- need to add gloss on top also.

    This color looks so good on you! I tried once smashbox makeup and I got a very ugly allergy. I am horrified of trying something else.
    Have a great day!
