Lipstick review: Smashbox always on liquid lipstick – babe alert & gula-bae

Hey there, fashionistas! Today, we will be reviewing the Always On Liquid Lipstick by Smashbox in two shades – Babe Alert and Gula-Bae.

When it comes to glamming up, a lipstick can change the whole game. All makeup aficionados love experimenting with different shades of lipsticks. Some even love mixing two shades to create a new one.

And, one cosmetic brand which has grown famous among the masses is SMASHBOX. Today, we will be reviewing their lipsticks from one of their most popular range, Always On Liquid Lipstick. We have tried two shades from this range, Babe Alert and Gula-Bae and both of them have turned out to be amazing.

Let’s start with the pricing, if you compare it with brands like Lakme and Maybelline, you will find this product to be expensive. However, it’s in range with brands like MAC, Estee Lauder and Huda Beauty. You will have to shell out Rs 2100 to get this lipstick.

Talking about the quality, the application is quite smooth and it dries quickly once applied. The good thing about this one is that unlike other liquid lipsticks, it doesn’t crack. The stay is good but you will need to do some touchups in between.

However, one negative point that we felt this product has is that it starts drying up when it’s on the verge of finishing. Other than that, it is an amazing liquid lipstick.

Now, let’s talk about the shades. Both Babe Alert and Gula-Bae are good shades for the Indian skin tone. Interestingly, Gula-Bae has been specially designed for the Indian women. While this one has a pink-ish tone to it, Babe Alert, on the other hand, has a hint of red mixed with brown.

Both the shades are good if you wish to ditch the usual nude palette. They go well with both traditional and western looks and compliment heavy eye makeup perfectly.

The final verdict

In the end, we would say that you should definitely try this range of lipsticks from Smashbox. Both these shades suit all skin tones. However, you can also find similar shades in other brands as well. Quality wise, the product is good if you are willing to splurge on lipsticks.
