I have tried bad lipsticks in my life, I have tried great lipsticks in my life. Smashbox lipsticks are somewhere in between.
Again, love the packaging, and the way the lipstick bullet is. I loved the pigmentation of the lipstick too. I didn't love that it went dry fairly quickly (about two hours) and how the color started to pool around my lips. not a good look.
As far as first impressions go, it's in my "only wear when you're not going out for long" days.
Only time will tell if my opinion changes later on...
