I really love Smith and Cult. It started with the nail polishes with their ultra chic shades and now I permanently have one of their lip glosses in my handbag. The latest addition to the line are these very pretty hybrid lip care and makeup products in two glossy shades. Here’s a look at the new Smith and Cult Tainted Lip Stained collection. Super-cute packaging alert!

Smith and Cult Tainted Lip Stained Swatches
Linger Sigh (honey + bruised), Sweet Suite (plastic + pink):
The texture of these glosses is absolutely gorgeous. They literally glide over the lips, instantly soothing any dryness and making them feel super comfortable. They give the lips a really juicy, volumised look and even after the gloss fades, a kind of just-bitten tint remains on the lips. They also feel very moisturised and plumped long after the shine has gone.
The feel of these is key. There’s no stickiness at all, and they actually have the nourishing feel of a lip oil.
I absolutely love the gold packaging too. With Smith and Cult products, I always get a lot of questions about the packaging and whether the caps are dented. I think this must be because the design doesn’t come over too well in my photographs. In real life, the depressed design of the lids that feature on the lip products and also the nail polishes is really beautiful. I love it.
