Benefit They’re Real! Double The Lip Swatches 

You can save time and get fuller-looking lips in one easy stroke with the new Benefit Cosmetics they’re real! double the lip. This lip liner & lipstick in one features a Custom Teardrop Tip that lines and defines your lip line and fills in lips with a complimenting colour lippie for the appearance of volume and dimension. A creamy,  semi-matte lipstick which comes in neutrals, pinks, reds, berries and corals with 8 shades available. I sadly only have 7 as I lost one in a recent bag theft 😮 so I don’t have the nude colour to swatch for you but FYI, it was my fave.

How Does It Work?

The tube is tear shaped rather than round and the pointed end of the teardrop has a different, complimentary liner shade with a slightly waxier texture, like a lip liner, to prevent colour bleeding around the lips and to define the lip shape. The lip colour and liner colour blend together to give a subtle definition rather than a harsh line.

How To Apply?

To apply simply position the pointed tip along your upper lip line and glide on. Pivot the tube around when you fill in your lower lip, so the pointed tip is always against your lip line, and that’s your lips done! 😉 

What’s The Consistency and Pigmentation Like?

The lip liner and lipstick all in one idea works really well. I wasn’t sure if it would as sometimes things like this are a bit gimmicky but they’ve chosen good colours and the pigmentation is great.  I am not sure I would describe the finish as ‘semi-matte’ as they do. These are more of a creamy velvet texture in my opinion. Definitely not shiny or glossy, but not particularly matte either. I prefer that actually as makes your lips look plumper.  My lips were visibly fuller.

They Claim This Lasts 8 Hours, Does It?

I’m quite unlucky that lipstick doesn’t stay on me that well. I’ve had plenty of all-day liquid lipsticks start to wear off after 4/5 hours. If I put it on just before I leave for work it will stay until around 11 am and if I reapply it after lunch it will stay on until around 4 pm. So it does last longer than a regular Mac lipstick on me, but not 8 hours.

Favourite Colours

I really like the shades Revved Up Red, Juicy Berry and Lusty Rose. They all work well if you have quite pink or pigmented lips already. I think the other colours would work better for those with darker skin tones, or with more of a blue undertone to their skin.

Would I Recommend?

I’d definitely recommend investing in one, the best one, in my opinion, would be either the nude colour that was lost when my bag was taken (I will repurchase) or Lusty Rose.  Benefit Cosmetics they’re real! double the lip are perfect for super quick, natural, daytime makeup when you’re so busy you barely have time to look in a mirror but want to look put together and like you’ve made an effort. These are great for those who don’t have much time to spend. They are a great invention and not just a gimmick and I have been very impressed with the formula, application and pigmentation.
