Lip glosses are not everyone’s cup of tea, some love it and some hate it, well it is not easy to please everyone right? Spring is here, maybe you should think about changing the routine and try things you are not really into. Having glossy lips can be one of these things, with the reflection of sun your lips would be glowing. Glowing, shimmery Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss range has some colours that you might want to check out.

Lip glosses are back again this year. This year, some of the trends are about having glowy skin and makeup, like applying Vaseline to your eye lids and cheeks to get that dewy look, would you do it? Since I already have oily skin, I will most likely skip it and only use Vaseline on my lips, but I will jump to lip gloss wagon.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss Review

I’ve had these Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss set since November (I guess it’s from Holiday 2015 Collection – Art.Love.Color|Lips), however, I didn’t really used them back then as in Winter having wet lips means getting extra dry lips for me. Do you have the same problem?

The Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss set has 5 lip glosses. Coraline is described as True Coral, it gives glossiness, but there’s not much colour going on. Disco Rose is a Rich Rose colour and gives red&rose mix finish and once the lip gloss settles there’s some reddish tint on the lips. It feels like a sheer lipstick. Orchid is a beautiful sheer berry colour. Pout is Pale Blue Pink and like Coraline, it doesn’t really give any colour, so it rather reflects your natural lips. Superstar is soft golden grape colour and it has really fine shimmers in it. You can see little sparkles on the lips.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss Swatches

SmashBox Be Legendary Lip Gloss is descried as a weightless and non-sticky lip gloss, which I will not agree with 100%, there are weightless lipsticks, however, I don’t think there’s such thing as weightless lip gloss. If you know any, please let me know! When you wear it, you feel it on your lips, but in time it feels lighter, which I don’t really mind. One of the things that put me off with lip glosses is the stickiness; I hate having my hair sticking to my lips, especially when it is windy. These lip glosses are a little sticky, so I won’t agree entirely with non-sticky formula. However, in the end which lip gloss is not sticky? Considering this, I have to say it is certainly better than normal lip glosses.

At first, they have glossy and shiny finish then once it settles they kinda look like in between glossy and opaque, so if you don’t like to have extra shiny lips then you should give this one a try. Most of the glosses are so sheer that you can’t really see any colour on the lips but glossiness, but these ones actually give some colour to the lips, for effortless look it can be a good pick. However, you shouldn’t expect something extra pigmented as they won’t look as pigmented as they look in the tube.

I love the moisturising effect of these lip glosses, my lips feel soft and they don’t tend to dry out. Longevity wise, it lasts a few hours on my lips which is good for a lip gloss (no drinking and eating). Even after a few hours, Disco Rose and Orchid leave some tint on the lips, so you can go for a while without refreshing your lip gloss.

The applicator is a winner, you can apply the lip gloss from both sides and there’s no excessive product on the wand, so you won’t have to worry about having too much lip gloss on the lips. If you like to know more about these lip glosses then please checkout the Smashbox website.

How do you feel about lip glosses? What’s your favourite one? Have you tried Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss? And the most importantly, does it make you feel legendary?

    I’m still pretty old school and love lip glosses, so these are my sort of product! Think I’d prefer them if they were more pigmented, but Pout and Coraline sound like lovely everyday shades 🙂

    • I was the same however now I hardly wear them. I want to try new Lancôme ones, they look so cute.

  • They look lovely and are such pretty colours. If they are non sticky I will like them. Thanks for introducing me to the lipgloss selection. Gemma x

    • Most of the lip glosses are sticky, that’s why I hardly use them xx

  • I’m not a huge lip glosses fan either but, when the summertime come, I’m always tempted to try some, plus I keep hearing that they are coming back …

    • Since they are coming back, I will try to wear them more often. I used to love them when I was a teenager.

  • Karina Guimarães Ribeiro

    Lip glosses are always a good idea for the spring and summer, i love the Coraline color.

    • I am more of a lipstick person too. I just don’t like the stickiness of lip glosses.

  • Hi Ela ♥ I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with glosses, I love a glossy finish, but they almost never have good colour payoff and feel too sticky.. but, as you said, which gloss doesn’t feel sticky for at least a little! I like how ‘Pout’ sounds, like a violet type of colour… and I do love a ponytail and glossy lips in summer! I think I will swap these next time I’m at a SBox counter 🙂
    ps; Its strange that your lips dry out in winter when wearing these type of lippies! its kind of the opposite or me 😉 ow, and I do love the whole glossy look that is trending, not that sure if this kind of look will work under the hot sun!

    Have a great week!

    x Josune @ Your Beauty Script

    • I have love&hate relationship with glosses too. I used to love and wear them all the time when I was a teenager and now I hardly wear them. Stickiness kinda puts me off, well sometimes for beauty we have to do things we don’t really like 🙂
      My lips are dry in general and when it kinda feels wet, then they got weirdly dry which I hate. I’m not really sure how often I’d wear lip glosses in summer like you said I don’t want to imagine hot days wearing lip gloss 🙂 however Spring is the perfect time for it.
      Have a great week, Josune. xx

      • after this post I actually bought myself a lip gloss, :p it’s a Kiko one though 🙂 Spring indeed feels perfect for a glossy shine! x

  • I’m not a massive gloss fan but these sound lovely and I love the colour selection!

    • I’m not a lip gloss person either, I still prefer my beloved lipsticks 🙂

  • I am not a fan of lipglosses, mainly because I’m not into sheer finishes – I like opaque colours on my lips, even with nude shades. I often find that people trying out lipglosses as you did here are more often than not a bit disappointed by the products.I guess we expect so much of a product that claims to be ‘legendary’ 😛 So it’s a pity that these are not overly pigmented, because the shades themselves are super pretty!

    • Every company promises things they can’t give, I’m used to disappointment:) however they give at least some colour to lips, some of the ones I used before didn’t give any tint. I am not a lip gloss person but I will try to use them more often 🙂 x

  • I am not a fan of lip glosses in general because my hair keeps getting stuck onto my lips and it’s just all sorts of grossness. These look really pigmented though but I will pass.

    • Ah same happens to me and I hate it! I’m a lipstick person and it will always stay that way 🙂

  • I’m drooling over the colors – they’re so springy. I could definitely go for a pretty purple. :]

  • I love them all! Even though I don’t wear/buy a lot of lip glosses this ones seems super worth it 🙂

    • I hardly buy lip glosses, these were a gift to me so I might as well use them 🙂

  • Lip gloss is where its at for me, especially tinted lip gloss since this is the closest I get to lipstick. So many pretty colors here. Thanks for the info!


    • Lip glosses are perfect for spring, some tint on the lips and shiny finish!

  • Katie

    I love lip glosses for this time of year, these colors are really pretty! My C.O. Bigelow mint lip gloss is probably the least sticky formula I’ve tried.

    • I haven’t used many lip glosses for a long time, I used to love them when I was a teenager 🙂 these are better than the most of the ones I’ve tried, less stickiness 🙂

  • I’ve become more of a gloss girl lately so I will definitely have to give these a swatch when I go makeup shopping, which will probably be soon ;P. I’m glad these aren’t too sticky. I don’t mind some stickiness, but I can’t deal with lip glosses that are so sticky they tend to gunk up on the lips.

    Nida | Caked To The Nines

    • I’m slowly getting into lip glosses and I’m sure I’ll be using them more often since spring is here:) I haven’t found any lip gloss that’s not sticky so a little bit of stickiness is still fine 🙂 xx

    I’m not usually much of a gloss person but I absolutely adore Smashbox so I would definitely consider trying these out. The colours look gorgeous, especially the nude!

  • The pigmentation looks great! I love the red shade. I don’t like lip glosses on windy days, as my hair always blows into it and gets all sticky, but they are my favorite for hot summer days. I use NARS’ tasmania lip gloss the most of all 🙂

    xo, mikéla /

    • I hate it when my hair gets all over my lips, so lip gloss on a windy day is no-go 🙂 x

  • They have some lovely colours! 🙂

    I agree with you on the sticky lip gloss problem – haha! I used to have rally long hair and wear lip gloss a lot, I was always getting stuck when the wind picked up! Haven’t worn gloss in a while, although I do use my paw paw balm on my lips often.

    Away From The Blue

    • I have long hair at the moment and I know the struggle, I really hate it 🙂

  • The packaging looks really nice, but if it’s a sticky lip gloss then it’s not a winner for me! I hate having my hair stick to my lip gloss!

  • Love your ideas here!

  • Nadia

    What beautiful shades! I was trying to pick my fave and I can’t! Love the lilac’y ones & the nude one so much. I can definitely see lip glosses making a strong comeback. As much as I have always found them to be gross and uncomfortable to wear, I have to admit that a) the formulas have changed since those “super sticky times” lol and b) they definitely look so much better than any lip gloss a decade ago. Shades ranges are especially impressive.
    While I currently have ONE lip gloss in my arsenal, I might try and get a few more by amazing brands like Smashbox and give them a go 🙂 Thanks for a great review, sweetie!
    xox Nadia

    • I used to wear only lip glosses years ago, I don’t know how I managed to do it. Formulas have definitely changed a lot, luckily they are not that sticky anymore 🙂 I still prefer my lipsticks more ha ha 🙂
      Have a great week, hun! xx

  • i have this lipgloss in one shade. i love how they are very thick and transfer the colour. A little bit sticky though for me, but I’m not a gloss kind of girl x

    • They are a little bit sticky, agree with that however it gets better in time. I am not a lip gloss person either! x

  • After years of avoiding glosses I’m getting back into them these days – I love Smashbox so would love to give some of these a whirl!

    Oh my gosh, I’m totally a lip gloss girl at heart and I LOOOVE the look of these! Honestly, I could never quite embrace the matte lipstick trend – I’ve always been into glosses and sheen lip finish. I’ve actually never tried these, but they look fab and honestly you can’t go wrong with Smashbox – their products are super awesome! x Thanks for the recommendations hun, I will definitely be checking these out. x Orchid is on my radar for sure!


    • I used to love glosses years ago, however now I wouldn’t really say I love them. I am a lipstick person so matte is way better than glossy lips for me 🙂 However this year I will make an effort to wear more glosses.
      Have a great week, lovely! x

  • Jennifer

    Love the photos! I’m not the biggest fan of wearing lip gloss but these look so pretty


  • Ela, thank you so much for a great review! I almost never use lip glosses, since they tend to dry my lips out. I will check these out though, since you said they are moisturizing:) I love all the shades; they look so fresh and fun for spring.

    • I’m not a lip gloss person, I hardly wear them however now I’m making effort to wear them more often 🙂 These are way better than most of the ones I’ve tried, they leave my lips soft.

  • I’ve actually never tried any lip glosses or lipstick from smashbox before. I don’t normally wear lipgloss for the reason u described above and how it my hair always gets stuck to it, so I usually stick to a lipstick. However, I really love these colours! Thanks for another awesome review:-)

  • I used to love lip glosses and then I went off them when I became completely obsessed with matte lips! Although I still love a matte lip, I want to wear more glosses as I think they look so gorgeous in the Spring season. I love that these aren’t too shiny and sticky, softer opaque glosses always appeal to me more. I really want to try one of these in a brighter colour and completely change up my lip routine. This was such a great review and I’m intrigued to try these now:) – The Kylie Jenner Lip Kit – Unboxing, Review and Swatches

  • Oh man, such a bummer that the pigmentation isn’t as vivid on the lips as it is in the tube because when I first saw these pics, I was like, “omg, these colors are GORGEOUS.” I, too, hate wearing glosses that are super sticky. I’ve tried some that weren’t sticky, but more watery in the consistency. These, too, as you would imagine weren’t great, as they’d dry out super fast and look very, shiny upon applying. The struggle is real in finding a comfortable gloss to wear, haha. Thanks so much for the honest review and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!



    • It is almost impossible to find a comfortable gloss, well I haven’t found yet 🙂 I’m a lipstick person, however I’m trying to wear glosses more often. Have an amazing week, beauty! x

    • Glosses are perfect for spring time, a little bit of shine on the lips looks good 🙂

    I used to love glosses but I’ve switched to lipstick these days. Sadly I can only find Smashbox online so I’ve never tried anything from them. If I ever have a lipgloss phase again I might give these a go!


    • I used to only wear glosses when I was a teenager and now I’m no longer a gloss person.

    • Smashbox products are good, if you have a chance, give them a try.

  • They look really pretty! I love lipgloss, especially when it’s not sticky, but I’ve never tried one by Smashbox.


    • It is really hard to find non sticky glosses, at least there are better than the most I’ve tried.

  • omg the colors look so pretty!!! i haven’t tried their lip products yet but i’ve only heard good things about their beauty products. really need to go and try. their matte product seems really cool too

    • I have my eyes on the matte products too, I haven’t had any disappointing products so fay, hopefully I will never have ha ha!

  • I love the way you swatched them like this, it’s super pretty! For some reason Smashbox never excited me but I might have to check these out, I need moisturizing lippies!

    • Smashbox primers are good, it’s the first product I tried from them.

  • Great review. I was sent a sample a couple of years ago and I agree. The color is very light and it DOES feel like a lip gloss. They’re ok, but I feel there are better out there.

    • Pigmentation wise they are not the best and of course they feel sticky like most of the glosses, however they get better in time and leave my lips soft.
