So I was in the market for a vampy burgundy lipstick, but I didn't want anything too terribly drying. I already owned one lipstick from Benefit and I figured their glossy-lipstick hybrid might do the trick. ...Or not. It always amazes me how trick in-store lighting can really be.
It's $18 for a sleek black tube with white lettering and Benefit gives a tagline of "for the softest, sexiest lips." Umm.. sure. They also give a more indepth description of the "Silky Finish" line: Our flattering silky-finish lipsticks are sheer and buildable, so you can customize your look: a light wash of color for au natural gals or an amped-up POP of color for the drama queen in you!
I have a feeling Benefit has discontinued this color, since I couldn't find it or a description on the website. I would say it's a dark plum in the tube and a rusty burgundy on the skin. The thing I don't like about this whole line of lipsticks, in general? They have close to zero staying power.
Full on, straight out of the tube. Ah!!
