You may already know that Benefit Cosmetics is one of my all time favourite brands and has been for quite a number of years now. I have so many holy grail products from Benefit and I consider myself extremely fortunate that I am now receiving packages from them.
They recently sent me three of their They’re Real! Double The Lip Lipstick & Liner in One Lipsticks. While these lipsticks have been out for awhile now, these are new colours that just released at the beginning of March. I was really excited because I had not yet tried any of them, and I had no idea how the formula or the colour payoff would be.
“Get fuller-looking lips in one easy stroke with they’re real! double the lip”
This is what this lipstick promises:
“This lip liner & lipstick in one features a Custom Teardrop Tip that grabs and defines your lip line and fills in lips with a complementing colour for the appearance of volume and dimension. This semi-matte lipstick comes in neutral to bright shades for visibly fuller, sexier lips”.
These are the shades that I was sent:
Bare Affair – Warm Nude – This one is definitely my favourite out of the three simply because I love a nude lip!
Racy Raspberry – Pink Raspberry
Ruthless Red– Juicy Red
I find these lipsticks to be ultra creamy and pigmented and I would describe the formula to be a creamy matte / satin-matte. I love the dimension they create with the built in lipliner and I find them really easy to use / apply with the pointed tip. All I do is rotate / flip the lipstick upside down to really line the lips with the tip. With more use I could see it becoming a little harder to get a sharp line, but I have yet to experience that. I have also noticed that they have a nice, light and fruity scent, that is not at all overly strong.
Here you can really see the lipliner effect with Bare Affair.
Its safe to say that I am in love with these lipsticks, and I really like the teardrop shape of the bullet and also the design of the packaging. Benefit always kills it with their packaging / marketing!!!
I highly recommend checking these out, as the formula and design gets two thumbs up from me!! I hope they release more nudes / soft pinks in the near future!!
Thank You to Benefit Canada for giving me this opportunity to review these wonderful lipsticks!
I hope you found this review helpful!
