Smashbox BCA Limited Edition Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Promise

smashbox post

Inspired by photo gels found on set, this gloss starts with a clear, hydrating base free of traditional heavy binders (meaning no stick-factor), then it's infused slowly with bold pigments (unlike most glosses that are over-processed in a rush).

Be Legendary—with a cause! Think pink with this limited-edition shade of our Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Promise, created exclusively for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). Just one swipe of this airy, glassy gloss leaves your pout with a vibrant wash of gorgeous color that’s never sticky.

My Review*

    20141101_182036

I am a big fan of Smashbox Cosmetics and always have been. They have such a large variety of products and different color varieties within those products, which is awesome. I have been collaborating with Estee Lauder Companies' BCA Campaign and they sent me the Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Promise.

Five dollars ($5 USD) from the purchase of the Promise lip gloss will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. It was created solely for the Estée Lauder Companies' Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign. I love companies that help raise awareness. You can read all about Breast Cancer in the Breast Cancer Breakdown post I wrote.

This gloss from Smashbox Cosmetics has the glamorous shine I love, without the sloppy stickiness—and it comes in a range of sophisticated, elegant shades- from a pretty neutral sparkling brown sugar to fearlessly bold shimmery sheer black.

The Promise Lip Gloss shade is a very feminine light pink color with a slight shimmer. You can wear it alone, under your favorite lip stick, or mixed with another gloss. I love that it’s true to color. The color I see on the website is exactly the color that it gives me when I apply it.

I love this lip gloss. It is such a beautiful color and makes any outfit shine with it’s light feminine pop of pink shine. It is a great quality gloss that doesn’t have to be re-applied very often, which I love. This feels like a liquid lipstick with a bit of gloss, which I love. I love the lightweight feel and the fact that it isn’t sticky yet it IS creamy. A+

Usually when a lip gloss has sparkles or glitter, I can feel it in the overall texture within the gloss. This one I can’t though, which I love. It’s just a creamy, nourishing feeling- not gritty like other sparkling glosses. The wand is also very thin which seems to mold to my lips, I love it. It seems to contain the amount of gloss that comes out to very little. so it’s a very even application all over.

I feel that this is an anytime/anywhere shade. It can be worn to work, to the playground with my kids, or even a date night with Adam. The color is very versatile and moisturizing. It creates a chic, modern, ultra-feminine girly look. I really am loving the pale pink color.

Smashbox tip: Create the illusion of a plumper pout by dabbing a bit of extra gloss in the center!

AMOUNT OF DONATION: In support of The Estée Lauder Companies’ BCA Campaign, Smashbox will donate $5.00 from the purchase price of this limited-edition shade of Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Promise to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF).
