Smashbox Insta-Matte | Lipstick Transformer

Hey guys! I feel so bad for taking so long to post about this! I bought it at Sephora either late January or early February, & when I got home & put it in my lip products container it actually fell behind it so I didn't end up finding it until last week! Better late than never tho!

The Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer is a product that'll let you love your lipsticks even more than you do now. When I seen this at Sephora I wasn't sure what I should expect from it, I didn't know what the texture was gonna be like or even the finish, however I knew I had to have it!

The packaging is very small & slim, just like a lip gloss. Which is perfect since it doesn't take up much room in your makeup bag. The product is a clear gel that comes out of a plastic doe foot applicator.

The lipstick I'm wearing a Younique lipstick in the shade Conceited which is a medium cream pink. The top picture is before the application of the Insta-Matte & the picture below is after.  As you can see it doesn't give you a completely matte lipstick like a matte liquid lipstick would. This more so reduces about 80% of the shine.

When applying I like to squeeze a small pea size amount on my finger tip & then pat it all over the lips. One of the things that I really enjoy about this product is that it doesn't dry out the lips & make the imperfections even more noticeable. The fact that it's also a clear gel means you can transform any of your lipsticks into a demi matte.

Over all thoughts, I love it. It's something that helps you get more use out of the lipsticks you already own. I bought this product at Sephora for $26, I also checked online to make sure it's still available & it is. I recommend checking it out, it might just be your new favourite thing. I also really love the feeling of it, it's like a smooth velvet feeling. Very enjoyable & useful.
