Benefit recently released 4 new shades within their Ultra Shines Lip Shine collection, and I was lucky enough to receive one of the glosses (in the shade ‘so frisk me’) to trial and review. The other shades in the collection are ‘nudie-tude’ (goldspun twist), ‘nookie nookie’ (opal glaze) and ‘patootie’ (oyster pink). Despite my longstanding love for the Benefit brand this was the first lip product from their range that I’ve ever tried, but it is a safe bet that after using this gloss I will be buying more in the future.
In the tube the colour looks to be quite dark but on application to the lips it’s a gorgeous semi-opaque berry colour that contains a lot of shimmer. It’s not too sparkly though, I can still wear it to work without feeling to overdone. The shimmer looks incredible in the sunlight and I’ve received quite a few comments on this gloss while standing outside, if that is anything to go by. The longevity of the product is quite good, with the gloss lasting 2-3 on average for me. I absolutely love the scent of the gloss, it’s a really summery fruity sort of smell that reminds me of skittles. The Ultra Shine Lip Shine range retails for $34 AUD and is available for purchase online from Adore Beauty. (note: I was sent this product for consideration for review)
