I’m really glad to see Smith & Cult bringing out more products – so far I rather like what I’ve seen and particularly like the new Ice Tears palette, above. It’s a great name for a palette that can product a gorgeous dark blue or grey smokey eye. The formulas are butter soft, super blendy and velvety and look a bit YSL to me. If you like a deep toned smokey, it’s right here. They’re good at names across the board.. there’s a lipstick called ‘Kissing Tiny Flowers’.
If you like a matte lip, or as Smith & Cult have rebranded it, a lip stained flat, I’ve got to say that this is very impressive. I know that brands keep upping their formulas when it comes to non-drying mattes, but this really is non-drying. I wore this happily and comfortably and I hate mattes! The only niggle I have is that it didn’t look terribly even on my lips – if you have ultra smooth lips naturally, you’ll be fine. While the colour did fade, the ‘stain’ element does seem to be there because several hours later I still had a hint of baby pink on my lips.
This new shade is LoveSucker and it’s £24.
You can see by the swatch that it’s a creamy, almost moussy formula and I think it’s better applied with a lip brush for a more even application. Lots of good things about this formula, but an even application isn’t one of them.
