Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick - Nylon Nude

I don't typically lean towards wearing a nude lip, but lately I've been wearing a lot of berry blushes and a darker eye, so a nude lip is needed. I recently picked up Sephora's Favorites Give Me More Lip set, which included a full size tube of Smashbox's Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade Nylon Nude ($23 CAD/0.1oz). This is a very nude lip with some peachy undertones.

"Legendary beauties are unforgettable for their daring, iconic style. Get famously bold lips that stand out from the crowd with this beautiful lip color packed with vitamins C and E. It's guaranteed to keep your lips feeling smooth and looking marvelous." - Sephora

This is my first time trying one of Smashbox's Be Legendary Lipsticks, and I'm quite impressed! Nylon Nude is fairly pigmented, and I only needed one or two swipes to achieve an opaque look. This lipstick has a somewhat creamy lipstick, but it isn't the most hydrating formula that I've ever used. I do think that your lips need to be in fairly good condition before using this formula because it will accentuate any flaky bits that you may have. I always make sure to exfoliate my lips before applying Nylon Nude.

I do like the hint of peach in this nude lipstick, as it makes it a bit more wearable. A lot of nude lipsticks give me a dead look, but I think that the peach notes in this formula add something extra! This formula lasts on my lips for about 4-5 hours, which I find quite good. Nylon Nude is a creme formula, but it does have a lovely sheen to it. I normally like to wear something with a bit of shimmer in it, but I actually enjoy wearing this creme shade! I also absolutely love the packaging of this lipstick line, I think it's so chic!

  2. Like you I never really go for nude and if I do its always a gloss. This looks really nice though.
