Smashbox Lip Paint - Artiste

I really, really wanted Smashbox's Muse Lip Paint in Artiste, but everywhere I went, they were sold out! Boo! Back in February when I was in LA, I managed to find it while shopping at Irvine Spectrum! Planet Beauty had a great selection of higher end cosmetics and hair care products. I walked away with my Muse and some lashes that I managed to mangle that night. Let's just say I slept with them on. I won't disclose any other details. Hahah!

Artiste is the middle tube. Love, love, love! I wasn't too fond of the other shades since they were particularly light.

I love how the tube is a soft squeezable tube with a doe foot applicator. I think I would have liked a brush applicator better, but I was stoked with the squeeze tube! I can get every bit of product out of this without trying to unsuccessfully scrape the tube. I actually squeeze a bit of product up and swipe it up with the applicator.

The texture has a nice slip and is a bit thick, but not overly sticky like Lipglass can be. The swatch here shows it to be a bit more ruddy, but it is actually a mauve with gold flecks.

I look tired, but at least my lipgloss is pretty! Its a very natural color on me and I love it! I hope Smashbox takes note and creates more lipglosses like this - color, texture and the PACKAGING! Overall, I give this gloss an A++. I like it that much! :)
