Smashbox Cosmetics Always On Liquid Lipstick Review

If you know me, then you know I love a brown lip. One of my favorite lipsticks for the past year has been Smashbox's Always On Liquid Lipstick in True Grit, so you can imagine how excited I was when they created new nude shades. The new additions consist of six shades: Fair Game, Gotta Light, Stay Neutral, Psychic Medium, Slay Tan, and Deep Thoughts. I love that they've created lip shades that compliment a flawless 'no makeup' look for almost every skin tone.

Personally, I'm a fan of nude shades that lean more to the brown/dark brown side which include Psychic Medium, Slay Tan, and Deep Thoughts. I prefer tints that match my skin tone or are slightly darker, and these three shades are perfect for most of my brown girls!

I've reviewed a total of four Smashbox Cosmetics Always on Liquid Lipsticks: True Grit, Slay Tan, Psychic Medium, and Deep Thoughts. Below you can see how the shades look on my skin tone, versus in the bottle (which tends to look different). Tap the picture for a direct link to purchase the products.




  • Long lasting: I almost never have to reapply, and it stays on even after eating

  • Texture: applies smoothly, and the angled tip of the applicator allows you to line your lips perfectly

  • Smashbox Cosmetics' Always On Liquid Lipstick comes in 44 shades

  • Formulated with Primer Oil complex which conditions lips

  • Cruelty-free


  • Price: $24 is a little expensive for a lipstick, but I don't feel it's ridiculous for the quality that this product brings

  • Packaging: The clear tube and black top symbolize luxury, but the bulkiness may be a problem when carrying small clutches


All in all, If you're looking for a lipstick that provides you with rich color, comes in a variety of shades and finishes, and isn't too bad on your wallet, Smashbox Cosmetics' Always on Liquid Lipstick is my recommendation!
