Smashbox Fireball Matte Be Legendary Lipstick! (& a wee Smashboxpark plug!)

If you were following me ANYWHERE on social media this past weekend you'll know that I spent the most incredible two days with Smashbox in London, checking out their pop up shop, Smashboxpark in Boxpark, Shoreditch. A definite highlight of that entire trip has to have been discovering one of their newest Be Legendary lipsticks in Fireball Matte. 

The most stunning fiery orange/red, National Makeup Coach for Smashbox (& all 'round good egg) Janine Bird admits to shedding a little tear at its sheer perfection: 

This ultra luxe formulation glides on and settles to a silky matte finish. It boasts Vitamin C, E and shea butter for a nourishing, non drying long lasting lipstick like nothing else I've tried. And boy does it last, check out Smashbox MUA Carolina Bicudo's (pictured) after shower shot!

Smashbox Fireball Matte - REFUSES to budge!
Twice now I've sported this stunning shade and it's true what they say about people treating you differently when you're wearing a strong lip. There's an undeniable confidence in powerful colours such as Fireball, even more so when you can be confident that, once applied, it's not going anywhere. 

Janine recommends taking your time with Fireball application for maximum longevity
Apply over your favourite red lip liner for application perfection, or, as Janine suggested, over Fuchsia to bring a whole new dimension to this show stopping shade.

What make we of Fireball? Will you dare to wear? It joins the Be Legendary lip lineup this month at €21. Available from Smashbox counters nationwide & online from Boots & Arnott's. 

Should you be in the vicinity of Shoreditch though, do be sure to drop by Boxpark before they close in mid June. The Smashboxpark pop up is about as perfect a brand fit as I've seen in a very long while! You can even grab an aprés makeover selfie in some of the most amazing lighting available, as evidenced by Youtube beauty pal Melanie Murphy below:
