Smashbox Cherry Copper Be Legendary Lipstick is a recently Nordstrom Rack haul of mine that launched with the Cherry Smoke Fall 2014 Collection. It only set me back ten bucks! I wanted it when it launched but somehow it fell down my beauty wish list so I was happy I was able to finally get it and on sale too. I’ve been to two different Nordstrom Racks and both actually have tons and tons of the shade available so check your local store and see if you can grab it if you do want it after reading my review.
For me, Smashbox Cherry Copper Be Legendary Lipstick is more about the color their the formula. This is a beautiful orange-y metallic copper! I love shades like this and obviously the name is slightly misleading as there isn’t anything cherry about this shade.
The formula, mmmm meh, not all that great. I find the texture drags a little during application and looks best with a little clear gloss on top as the metallic finish looks a bit frosty on my lips. With clear gloss you can get more of a liquid metal look. The texture is light but it’s not terribly hydrating and feels a bit on the dry side on my already dry lips!

I think the issue is reserved for this shade though as I have a few Smashbox Be Legendary Lipsticks and they are quite creamy, it’s just this particular shade that had a bit of a draggy application and felt a little on the dry side.
But I wouldn’t give it up for the world as the color is really gorgeous and I can totally make it work with clear gloss. And hey, at ten bucks? I’m trying hard not to complain too much 🙂

P.S. Nordstrom Rack has a website now, it’s kinda limited (I think the score has way more potential) but you can shop it at www.nordstromrack.com.
