Smashbox Be Legendary Triple Tone Lipstick released in the hopes of making ombre lips easy. Because people, ombre lips are hard to achieve and hard to rock. The trend for me started in Korea and slowly wormed its way into the Western market. I watch all these incredible Instagram mini videos where gurus make it SO easy to create an ombre look and I end up trying it and look like a clown with smeared makeup.
Or sometimes, just sometimes, like rarely, I actually do nail it but I look sickly for some reason.
Smashbox Be Legendary Triple Tone Lipstick is supposed to take the difficulties and application issues of an ombre lip out of your hand by making things easier. How? By creating a lipstick with three shades! Just swipe it on and the three shades act to line lips while providing a dark and light contrasting shades to create an ombre look. The demi-matte finish provides a smooth, even application.
Awesome idea right?
I have some reservations as I’ve tried Korean lipsticks and products like this in the past and they don’t quite work out as promo images applied. Etude House’s Balm + Color Tint is proof positive of this.
What do you think?
Think it’ll work out as great as the model’s lips?
