Get excited Canadian lipstick lovers! Smashbox has a creation just for us that was born via a collaboration with Flare magazine and fashion illustrator Donald Robertson.

'Ignite your lip look with this ultra-soft lip color that's exclusive to Sephora. Inspired by the Canadian flag, Smashbox and Flare Magazine collaborated to create this limited-edition, vibrant, warm-coral red lipstick—dressed up by cult artist Donald Robertson. Get one-swipe, rich lip color with this creamy shade that’s formulated with shea butter for lasting hydration and vitamins C and E to protect, leaving lips feeling ultra-soft with a gleaming finish.'

Canadian Flare is a gorgeous warm red with a creamy texture and a bit of glossy shine. I usually opt for a slightly deeper, more cool toned red, but this shade isn't too warm and works well on me. I think this shade should suit most, and the creamy texture wears very well. I have no prior experience with the Be Legendary formula, but this shade has a smooth, hydrating texture (thanks to shea butter, and vitamins c and e) and a buildable level of colour. The colour wears well for a few hours (4-5) and stays completely comfortable. I leaves a bit of a stain as it wears, which I quite like in a red lip shade.

Overall, this is a great red lipstick! I love that Smashbox created something just for their Canadian fans and the Donald Robertson packaging is an added bonus. Should you not be Canadian (sorry!) Smashbox has also released Smashbox + Donald Robertson Be Legendary Matte Lipsticks, with six Sephora exclusive, limited edition shades featuring packaging with Robertson illustrations. What do think of this red? Yay or nay?
