Line e and fill
A lipstick rangge combines the job of a lipstick and lipliner buut still prefers the prrecision of the pencil
ALIPSTICK is not enough. You have to line tthe lip first with a pencil to set the frame and fill it in with your lipcolour. But Benefit’s They’re Real Double The Lip (RM100) lip colourr promises a twoin-one lipstick and liplliner experience.
No more lipstick and lip pencil. You can have both in one tuube.
The brand’s Teardroop Tip “grabs and defines your lip line annd fills in lips with complementting colour for the appearance of volume and dimension”.
In other words, the stick has two complementary shades onit so whenyouswipe the teardrop applicator on, your lips will be lined and filled up at the same time.
There are eight sexy shades on offer and eight neutrals. I tried the Criminally Coral colour. On the tip of the lipstick is a red shade, followed by a light coral hue.
Swiping it on is a breeze but it lacks the precision of a pencil lip liner despite the tipped end and you’d have to remember to point the tip downwards when doing your lower lips otherwise the line will appear close to your mouth. strong colours won’t appear so bold.
My take on this lipstick range doesn’t reflect the consumer panel survey it did. Some 91 per cent of the 110 women who participated in the survey said lips look fuller and sexier. To me, they look like they have been swiped by lipstick, nothing more.
I like it that it defines the lip line but I am a conventional person and I prefer the precision of a lip pencil. Andat RM100, I find it to bepricey too, for the function it delivers.
