Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss - Melondrama

I was already a fan of Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Stick formula, so when I heard that they were releasing a new Be Legendary Lip Gloss line, I was super excited! I've been trying out the shade Melondrama* ($23/0.2 oz), which not only has an adorable name, but a great formula!

"Inspired by photo gels found on set, this glassy gloss starts with a clear, hydrating base free of traditional heavy binders (meaning no stick-factor), then infused slowly with vibrant pigments. All of the gloss ingredients are perfectly dispersed in an ultrarefined formula, creating a superlight, comfortable blend that you can hardly feel. And yet, like a photo gel, the gloss still leaves a bold wash of gorgeous color since the pigments are left intact with the careful mixing process." - Sephora

Smashbox's new Be Legendary Lip Gloss comes packaging in a clear rectangular bottle with a flattened doe foot applicator. There is a very slight scent to this gloss, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Melondrama is a beautiful peachy orange shade with golden shimmer. This gloss has medium opacity, but it definitely isn't opaque. If you wanted a bolder lip, you could pair the Legendary Lip Stick underneath in the same shade. Smashbox is marketing this as a bold, full coverage colour, which I don't think it is. Either way, I don't mind a semi-sheer gloss, but I know that this is a deal breaker for a lot of women.

This gloss feels incredibly smooth and comfortable on my lips - almost like I'm just wearing a lip balm! The formula isn't stick at all, so if you don't traditionally like lip gloss, you might like this one. I love the high shine finish from this gloss, it's so pretty! This gloss wears for about 3 hours on my lips, and it does transfer while eating or drinking. However, you don't need a mirror to reapply this shade, so touch ups are super easy!

I'm really loving how comfortable this lip gloss is! I feel like so many brands are putting out great glosses - sticky gloss is becoming a thing of the past. Hooray! Melondrama is a perfect Spring shade, and I'm loving the golden shimmer, it's just beautiful I'm also wanting to try out the shades Coquette, Pink Lady, Illume, and Gingerly. Have you tried any of these new glosses yet? :)
