The makeup masters at Benefit have created a new product that I couldn't wait to review. It's called the They're Real Double The Lip, a lipstick and lip liner combo that helps bless you with fuller-looking lips.
It provides a fuller effect through its bullet's teardrop tip, that holds liner at the top and lipstick at the bottom. The bullet's shape also makes applying this lipstick incredibly easy, to the point where I shave off at least five minutes of my standard lip liner and lipstick application time.
There are eight shades in the new collection, ranging from neutrals to bright shades:
- Nude Scandal
- Flame Game
- Criminally Coral
- Pink Thrills
- Revved-Up Red
- Fuchsia Fever
- Lusty Rose
- Juicy Berry
All shades have a semi-matte finish and nourishing consistency. Pigment is strong across all shades, however Revved-Up Red, Fuchsia Fever and Juicy Berry are so highly pigmented that even my best cleanser can't remove their colour in one cleanse alone!
For the most part, these new lip products do help give the appearance of fuller lips. However I found this was most effective with the shades Pink Thrills, Juicy Berry, Lusty Rose and Criminally Coral. I saw the least plumping-effect with Flame Game and Fuschia Fever, however both colours are so dope I couldn't give a fuck!
