Line e and fill

A lip­stick rangge com­bines the job of a lip­stick and li­pliner buut still prefers the prreci­sion of the pen­cil

New Straits Times - - Flair -

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.
