Smashbox's Be Legendary Lip Gloss provides nearly perfect glossy finish without the (sometimes sticky, but often protective) coverage that most lip glosses contribute. That's both fantastic and a little disappointing. For those who prefer moisturizing lip glosses, this won't replace those, but for those looking for the gloss without the thick (and moisturizing) coverage, this is the way to go. I purchased mine in Smashbox's ART. LOVE. COLOR gift set (GREAT VALUE!)—slightly smaller Pout, Coraline, Disco Rose, Orchid, and Superstar—and while all the colors are excellent, they don't entirely hide the color underneath, making them ideal for blending but less "fearlessly bold" than described. Even the most dramatic colors in the range mellow out a bit on the lip. For me, that's a good thing. If I want truly bold, I'll use a lip stain.
