DOUBLE THE LIP

Benefit Cosmetics Double the Lip in Lusty Rose

One of Benefit Cosmetics' latest offerings is the They're Real Double the Lip lipstick & liner duo. Aimed at creating fuller-looking lips in a single swipe, these are a two-in-one product to add to a minimal makeup collection. I picked up my sample-sized Double the Lip in a recent issue of Elle Australia, and am glad to have tried this cute colour, Lusty Rose.

The lipstick bullet is ultra thin and teardrop-shaped to allow you precision when applying. The outer colour is generally a darker shade and acts as the lipliner, while the bulk of the bullet is the lighter shade that fills in your lips. The design is quite easy to handle and I found it quite intuitive to apply to the lips. The lipliner shade stayed on the outside' the lipstick didn't all blend together into one shade (obviously this is the idea). 

The formula itself is creamy, and I found it more on the hydrating side, though it is labelled as a semi-matte product. I'm glad I've tried a sample size and while I'm not totally sold on buying a full-size, I would like to test out the darker shades to see how the lipliner effect comes off.

As far as the plumping effect goes, I did feel like I achieved the result, and the striking difference between lipliner and lipstick shades wasn't so terrible on the lips. It simply adds some dimension to where it helps. Double the Lip retails for AUD$36 at Benefit stockists.

Have you tried Double the Lip from Benefit? What are your must-have shades?
