We all love Benefit make up. Their makeup is cute as hell and their primer is TO DIE FOR. They are honestly one of my favourite brands! I am a sucker for a good lipstick, I honestly think I have over 100 Lipsticks so when I found out that Benefit released a line called There real Double lipstick & Liner I was so excited since its a two in one. I had my eye on the Big Sexy Lip Kit as soon as I heard about it, but it was a limited time thing and sadly sold out on me.
I was lucky enough to stumble across it when I was on holiday in the Duty-free shop. I was so happy.
This kit contains 4 lipstick & Lip Liners combined. At first impression, I was so confused since the top of the lipstick is slightly darker than the bottom. I didn’t understand how it would work. Was I going to have two different shades on my lip?
From top to bottom the colours are: revved up red, flame game, pink thrills and lusty rose!
The lipstick is shaped permanently as a teardrop which I really like since it makes it super easy to get into all the corners of your lips.
The texture was quite nice, it was almost a whipped texture and is very moisturizing. It isn’t sticky at all. It does, however, slide around until dry so be careful. It claims to have 8-hour longevity which I found it didn’t. For me, it only really lasted 4 hours but they are small enough to carry in a small bag so that doesn’t really bother me since their easy to carry around. One thing that really bothered me was the smell. It has a strange sweet smell that makes me feel really sick. I can’t really describe it.
Top to bottom : pink thrills, flame game, revved up red and lusty rose!
I also love how pigmented they are, one swipe on the lips and your good to go. The lip liner function I am very sceptical about since it doesn’t really feel like it’s doing anything.
These lipsticks claim to give you big fuller looking lips which I think they do. Not because of the built-in lip liner that they claim does it, but because of how moisturizing it is. What do you guys think? Do my lips look big and plump?
The slideshow below shows the colours!
Overall I really liked the results. The shape makes it easy to get right into the cupids bow and my lips look super kissable!
coming in at $45AUD their a snatch since a single one goes for $36AUD
Would I buy it again? Yeah, I definitely would the are cute as hell. I hope they bring out a nude collection.
That’s all from me.
Until next time my lovely xxx
