All about: Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer


I have worn matte lipstick for as long as I can remember; even when it was devastatingly uncool for the average beauty nerd I was still all over it like a rash. I just like the way it feels and love the way it looks, and call me a little too fond of the nineties - many do! - but I have always been a flag flying fan of a seriously matte lip (see matte perfection on Mossy, above). I’ve been wearing one with pride since I first started slicking on lipstick (no gloss for me) and so when I heard about Smashbox’s new Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer I was intrigued and just a little bit excited to boot.
2015 was definitely the year of the Return of the Matte Lip as a trend, and its power and popularity just continue to grow. Smashbox’s Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer vows to turn any formula you like matte, which at first had me perplexed. Would it? How could it? Seriously? However, if we can make our lipsticks shiny with a simple swipe of gloss why can't we make them matte as well, huh?
And that, my friends, is exactly what Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer does. A silky feeling gel in a tube, it transforms any cream lipstick into a velvety matte finish that lasts and lasts.
This means it also essentially doubles your lipstick wardrobe by transforming any of your fave shades into a velvet-smooth, matte finish that is never chalky, and the highly portable tube means you can mattify on the go, where and when you please. Magic!
My only worry with this product was that it would feel too heavy/gluggy on my lips since I already had a lipstick on under it, but that simply wasn’t the case. It is incredibly comfortable and light as well as being easy to apply, and gets a major thumbs up from me on all fronts.
Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer is available right now in selected Life Pharmacies, beauty spas, at the Smashbox Concept Store in Ponsonby and at www.smashboxcosmetics.co.nz with an RRP of $48.00. However, the fact that this baby expands your lipstick wardrobe exponentially makes it quite honestly, priceless!
