Since my love affair with cosmetics began, Smashbox has been a continual front runner as a favorite. Over and over again and with each product I add to my collection, I fall even more in love. Yet again, Smashbox is a smash hit with Fuchsia Flash–one of twenty-two lovely shades from their Be Legendary collection.
Unlike Mandarin which has a lustruous finish, Fuschia Flash’s finish is matte. Also unlike other matte lipsticks I’ve tried in the past, Fuchsia Flash feels so juicy and lightweight on the lips. Not only did I skip the moisturizer before applying the lippie, last Friday, I wore it all night without reapplying or touch ups. This lipstick did not even budge. That alone, is a huge plus as I don’t like to fuss with makeup while I’m out on the town.
I’ve been upping the ante with my lipsticks and going for bold. Fuchsia Flash is right on trend for summer 2012 and perfection when paired with minimal eye makeup. Not to be hindered, though, this shade can also be pulled off with a subtle smoky eye.
If you’re feeling like me and brave enough to try high-voltage shades, I’d definitely recommend this flashy, blue-toned beauty. For me, this just may be a staple throughout the summer so expect to see her alot. You’ve been forewarned.
