A lipstick and liner in one! I had to try the Benefit
I couldn’t decide which colour to get so I picked up the big sexy lipstick set which includes four colours: flame game, pink thrills, revved-up red & lusty rose.
What Benefit say about the product
Each custom teardrop tip grabs & defines your lip line and fills in lips with complementing colour for visibly fuller, sexier lips instantly!
- Flame Game – orange-red
- Pink Thrills – bright pink
- Revved-Up Red – bright red
- Lusty Rose – dusky pink
The lipsticks are displayed in a tin and have individual labelled slots. The packaging is silver and the shape is the same as the they’re real mascara. The tin is a nice touch and is perfect if you want to display them. If I’m honest I probably wont use the tin myself.
The bullet is a teardrop shape, the point is the liner and the main body is the lipstick. I have read other reviews complaining that both parts are the same consistency, I however find that the liner is slightly more waxy and the lipstick more creamy. Other reviews also said that it was a really difficult product to apply. I disagree and feel that the point allows a smooth and even application with the lipstick colour filling in underneath. My bottom lip is too big to fill in completely with one swipe, so I just angle the product to fill in the rest. Rubbing my lips together helps to blend it and I am really happy with the results.
There is a subtle liner effect and a definitely think my lips appear fuller. I find that the lipsticks are comfortable and hydrating to wear and leave a subtle colour behind. I love all four of the colours and although I originally though that the orange shade would be my favourite, I have to say Lusty Rose is a beautiful colour and I am tempted to buy the full size of it.
Being a big fan of Benefit Cosmetics, I had high expectations of the products. I did initially think that the lipsticks would be a bit gimmicky and that I would get bored of them after a while, however I love the texture and colour range. I always wear bright lipsticks for Spring and Summer so will be alternating between these shades. The lipstick shades are so much fun that we have filmed a lipstick lookbook featuring them on our YouTube channel – watch it below.
