Smashbox on the rocks

I have never been much of a fan of lip glosses as I find them gloopy and I personally hate the texture. It's rare that I purchase lip gloss however, so many people have raved about the Smashbox on the rocks lip gloss collection that I wanted to purchase them to try out and review for you guys. 


My first reaction when they came in the post was that the colours looked pretty. They just looked so vibrant and the packaging was smart and simple.

I tried each one to see what they looked like on my lips, what the texture was like and how long lasting they would be as lip-glosses are not usually very long lasting. 

First thoughts.. I wasn't a fan of the texture they were rather sticky and didn't feel great on my lips. The three nude colours (Jewel, Gilt and Pout) were not very pigmented and they were hard to see on my lips. They looked like a standard clear lip-gloss with a slight shimmer. There was also glitter within the gloss which was awful to try and remove as it lingered on your lips. The glitter also made my lips sore. NOT IMPRESSED!

Although the nude lip-glosses were a disappointment, I did quite like the Azalea and Legendary as they were more noticeable on my lips. The colours were nice on and they were relatively long lasting. However, I don't think I will get much use out of them as I don't particularly like the texture. 

Overall, I personally do not understand the hype and I wouldn't purchase these again. 

This is just my personal opinion as I know so many of you LOVE lip gloss. I guess I will never been a lip gloss girl. Hand me a lipstick any day.
