Smashbox On the Rocks Legendary Lipstick Trio

Smashbox's On the Rocks Legendary Lipstick Trio* ($23 CAD) contains three minis of their Be Legendary Lipsticks. I've tried the Be Legendary Lipsticks before, so I was excited to try out three more shades! These lipsticks normally run for $23 each, so with this set you get to try out three minis for the price of one full size tube!

The lipsticks in this set aren't packaged as nicely as the full size lipsticks. I'll be honest, this mini packaging feels a bit cheap. The full size lipsticks have such nice, sturdy packaging, but these minis feel really plasticy, in my opinion. Packaging aside, the colours that Smashbox included are really nice. First up is Legendary, the true red from this lineup. I found that the formula of Legendary was a bit on the dry side, and the colour took a bit of time to apply evenly. Next is Fig, which is my personal favourite from the trio. Fig is a sheer berry with a glossy finish. Lastly, you have Primrose, with is a pinky nude. I love that Smashbox included a bright red, a berry, and a neutral, these three shades can easily get you through the holiday season!

So, what do you think about Smashbox's On the Rocks Legendary Lipstick Trio? I love the colours, but I do wish that the packaging was a bit nicer. Have you checked out any of Smashbox's holiday sets this Christmas?

    1. Thanks Jasmine! Ya, it looks and feels a bit more like a 500 point perk from Sephora, rather than an actual gift set!
