Benefit They're Real! Double The Lip // With Swatches

If you’re an avid reader of my blog, you’ll know I have a slight (OK, maybe a slight understatement) obsession with lip products; I just cannot get enough of ‘em. Benefit Cosmetics has recently launched its new they’re Real! Double the Lip and I’ve been giving them a whirl. A little (ok, a lot!) of lipstick never hurts, right? I was lucky enough to receive all eight shades of the new lippy and I have been like a kid in a sweetshop swatching them all.

The Benefit they’re Real! Double the Lip is the latest product within the they’re Real! Line; first we had the mascara, then the eyeliners and now the whole shebang with the lips. Maybe there will be a they’re Real! brow product coming, who knows? If there is, you heard it here first ;). The whole idea behind the they’re Real! Double the Lip is that it acts as a lipstick and lip liner in one. Pretty genius, right?

Are they the best lipsticks I have ever used? Not really, however, I must say I am loving using them, primarily for their ease. These are super easy to use. You get the darker liner shade on the tip of the teardrop bullet and the main lip colour underneath - simply pivoting depending on whether you’re applying on your top or bottom lip. For someone with small lips (filler needed please!!), I thought I would have great trouble trying to wear these, and in places it is harder to get definition, but overall not at all bad to use.

My only qualm is that sometimes I struggle getting the liner to sit right on the outline of my lips, and sometimes it’s hard to see definition. The positive of this is that the colours blend well together and the outline is not harsh in the slightest (no 90s lip here gals). I am not sure if I have achieved the fuller, sexier pout that the they’re Real! Double the Lip promises, but I have definitely been gravitating towards them everyday. They pack a punch with pigment and are super moisturising on the lip - genuinely, an all-round nice product!
