Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner in Nude Fair & Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Audition

A few weeks ago I reviewed Smashbox's Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in Paris Pink, which I absolutely loved! Unfortunately, this shade has been discontinued - why Smashbox, why?! Since I made you all fall in love with Paris Pink, I feel like I need to find a suitable replacement from the brand to share with you. And here comes Smashbox's Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Audition* ($23 CAD). I've been pairing this lipstick with Smashbox's Always Sharp Lip Liner in Nude Fair* ($23 CAD), for a beautiful pinky nude lip!

I'll be honest, I hardly ever wear lip liner. I just can't be bothered to add the extra step into my beauty routine. However, I did enjoy using this lip liner from Smashbox! I really appreciate the auto-sharpening packaging - not having to lug around a sharpener is a huge bonus! This formula is smooth and creamy, and I found it really easy to outline my lips. The shade Nude Fair actually matched my natural lip colour pretty well, as it's a nude pink shade.

Smashbox's Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Audition is a dusty rose shade with a natural finish. I wouldn't say that this is at all a dupe for Paris Pink, as that lipstick had a matte finish and was a pale pink shade. So, while this isn't a dupe for my beloved discontinued lippie, I do still think that Audition is a worthy competitor. This is a great everyday lipstick with a creamy and very wearable formula.

This lip liner and lipstick work beautifully together, so if you're looking for a great everyday lip duo, I'd highly recommend giving these a try! I get about 5 hours of wear from this duo, but you will have to touch up after eating/drinking, as these lipsticks aren't transfer resistant.

Have any of your favourite lipsticks ever been discontinued? I'm so sad that Paris Pink is no longer available, but Smashbox does have plenty of other worthy lipstick options! What do you think of their Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Audition?
