If you’ve read any of my earlier posts on the Benefit Double The Lip lipstick and lip liner duo, you’ll know that I haven’t been impressed by them overall. Of the four minis I tried from a set I bought, I only really loved one of them, and overall just felt a little underwhelmed by the range.
Now let me explain. It’s not the this is a terrible lipstick, and in fact, I like the colour of this particular shade, but it is meant to be a duo lipstick with a distinction between two shades, and in two of the four I’ve tried, I just couldn’t see any real distinction.
As you can see by both the swatch and the lip application, this one looks like one solid red colour and not two shades of red as you might think from the look of the lipstick tube. So really, it just isn’t what it claims it is and that’s annoying.
The formula is fine, it feels creamy on application, but overall, it just doesn’t really do anything for me. Plus, the lasting power isn’t great either so I’ve just felt a bit irritated by these lipsticks in general.
I’ll use the rest of this shade and one other which I really liked called Lusty Rose, but I definitely won’t be repurchasing these in the future.
