Smashbox Colour Match!

Hey guys! My mom wants me to replace a lipstick I gave her awhile back, but it looks like the shade has been discontinued. The lipstick was Smashbox Be Legendary in the colour "Vivid Violet".


Not sure whether they have a new colour that they've replaced it with that's similar. Any feedback is appreciated 🙂 

Smashbox Colour Match!

Have you tried finding the shade on Temptalia? You can use her dupe list to find a good match.

@MIDGshops  I wish Vivid Violet was still around because it is gorgeous!  I think Lancome's Absolu Rouge Hydrating Shaping Lipstick in 325 Impertinente (sheer formula) may be close; it's a little cooler and darker.  

I recently purchased one of Nars's re-released lipstick shades in Shrinagar, and I think it would be an even better match.  Here's a swatch on me (natural lighting.)


MAC's new collection, Love Me lipsticks, has a couple that are close.  Killing Me Softly (a little warmer than Vivid Violet) and Joie De Vivre may be worth checking out also.

I'm not sure if Smashbox came out with a similar color but off the top of my head, KAT VON D - Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick - Eggplant

in L.U.V. could be a dupe? @MIDGshops
