Benefit Her Glossiness
Since wearing Benefit Bad Lash Gal and being very disappointed with it I thought the last thing I would do is buy another Benefit product. That was until a few weeks ago when I saw my friend wearing Her Glossiness. When I saw her I couldn't take my eyes of her lips, they we're like a celebrities, very glossy and pouty, it didn't look gloopy or sticky and from that moment. I had to ask her what product it was and I was amazed when she said it was a benefit product. I have to say though I was sold and I had to have one as well.
I have read a few reviews about this product and I was surprised, no one raved about it.
I went straight to Boots to purchase the £13 lip gloss! They had five different shades including:
Didn't Hear It From Me
My People, Your People
Where's My Stylist
Who Are You Wearing
Who Does Your Work
I bought it in a fabulous bright pink shade called Who are you Wearing? This shade is such a beautiful colour, even though it looks bright pink in the tube on the lips it is a nice shade of pink, personally I think it is great for a day or night time look and I have used it for both and I don't feel out of place.
The packaging I feel doesn't live up to the Benefit name, when I think of Benefit as a brand I think of quirky packaging, don't take themselves to seriously, having fun with makeup and their packaging. This is why when I bought this lip gloss I was a little disappointed as the packaging wasn't what I expected. It was plane and boring. It is a clear 3.0g tube (which can be good as you can see how much product you have left) with a black glossy lid. The packaging looks cheap and doesn't represent the £13 price tag.
Inside the applicator itself is sponge, which makes for easy application and glides on so smoothly with very little effort. To me this product isn't sticky unlike other lip glosses and it really does have staying power. Yeah okay every time I eat and drink something some gloss does come off but doesn't it with every lip gloss and lipstick you use? This is no different granted but I do have some shine left on my lips, which is what other lip glosses don't give me. Even though it is sheer in colour it is also vibrant at the same time. You can apply your favourite lipstick and this gloss over the top and feel confident you will look gorgeous.
This gloss has a very lovely smell; it smells very fruity almost like a summer smell, the scent stays on the lips longer than other glosses I have found.
If you wear this product all day you will notice your lips are soft, although like other glosses and lipsticks your lips will eventually dry out so a good lip treatment is needed before bed so you're ready for the mornings glossing.
Ok the £13 price tag is expensive but I think it is a brilliant gloss that I would buy again in the future, after all it will take me a while to get through this tube so the price is justified, unlike cheaper brands where you get half the amount of product that you have to keep re-purchasing. You can purchase a decent branded gloss for £20 upwards so £13 isn't that bad, is it?
