Benefit’s They’re Real! Double the Lip

When I was in shoppers a few weeks ago to get nail polish remover, I walked out the door with $200 of product – none of which were the nail polish remover that prompted the original trip.

Out of my haul was a Benefit Cosmetics tin with 5 They’re Real! Double the Lip lipsticks.

According to Benefit

  • Get fuller-looking lips in one easy stroke
  • This lip liner & lipstick in one features a Custom Teardrop Tip that grabs and defines your lip line and fills in lips with complementing colour for the appearance of volume and dimension
  • This semi-matte lipstick comes in neutral to bright shades for visibly fuller, sexier lips.

According to Me

These are OKĀ lipsticks with great color however I wish they were longer lasting. I do find that I have to reapply frequently. I was skeptical about the liner/lipstick in 1 but it seems to work well. Takes a bit of getting used to to apply – and a bit more effort in the mornings. The contrast between the 2 colors does help make the lips look fuller, but not dramatically so. You could also achieve this look with liner and lipstick (but don’t to all 90’s on us!).

I don’t think these are the best lip colors on the market, but I don’t regret my purchase. I use them mostly for day looks and return to other, more dramatic, longer lasting lip colors for evenings out.

I think they are fun, a novel idea and I don’t regret my purchase. That being said they aren’t cheap so I don’t think I would get them again.
