Benefit's Full-Finish Lipstick: Fully Pleasing

Benefit's Full-Finish Lipstick: Fully Pleasing

At the Fall 2008 fashion shows, lipstick was more popular than lip gloss by far. It's a little early to slip into cool-weather fashion, but a creamy lipstick works any time of year.

Benefit has just launched Full-Finish Lipstick, and the texture is great. You know how some lipsticks pull on your lips a bit, or they just don't go on evenly? Not the case with these; they glide on easily and evenly, leaving my lips feeling smooth and moisturized. If you're looking for a new lipstick, it's worth taking a look at these. To see two colors — including one that is pretty much a dead ringer for Angelina Jolie's signature shade —


So here are two radically different shades, but I love both of them. On the left is Lady's Choice, a nude shade that seems very Angelina, no? It's great for that nude, no-makeup look, and it balances a smoky eye really well. On the other hand, there's Flirt Alert, a candy-apple red. It's a lot of color, but it dresses up a tee and jeans like nothing else. Do either of these strike your fancy?

I agree the colors and texture are great, but I was disappointed by its staying power. Fast-fading lipstick is my pet peeve,and I eventually had to shelve these babies since I am a faithful a.m. latte drinker.

You can find Lady's Choice color on ( I tried Flirt Alert, and I LOOOOOVE IT! It's an eye-catching color in pictures and when I go out at night. I've heard red lips also make your teeth look whiter.

I have a Benefit lip stick in a nude color and I really like it because it isn't chalky or drying. I hardly ever use it, since I mainly use carmex but I really need to!!!

I am OBSESSED with Benefit's lipsticks!! I have 7 or 8 of the Silky Finish Lipsticks, but have yet to try this formula. I can't wait now! I love the nude shade, but I'll probably end up getting a soft pink...that's usually what I go for.

Wow! Lady's Choice is really gorgeous! Flirt Alert seems a bit glossy for me - when I wear red, it's always Russian Red!

I have a weakness for red.

oo the nude looks great. i've been using nude lip glosses a lot but i don't like the sticky feeling they leave behind so this is a good alternative.

I'm not good with nude colors, considering my skin tone...but i'm a sucker for reds and this one is no different. i love it!

Oooh, great to hear! I think I'll stop by the local Benefit counter, and check it out! On a similar note, I can't wait to read your article on skin tones. That'll be a god-send! :D

Retro Bunny, it's a creamy color with a tiny bit of sheen, but nowhere near shiny or glossy. It has pink undertones and works great on cool-toned skin, I say. :)

I'm excited to try the Lady's Choice - looks like the perfect nude...
Retro-Bunny Retro-Bunny 9 years
Ooooh my giddy god. That nude is amazing! Is it a glossy nude or a matte nude? And how are the undertones? Pink or peach? I've been looking for a good nude, but nothing to make me look pinker!

I'm a fan of the silky-finish lipstick line (I like how they feel, even if they don't last terribly long, and the sheer colors have suited me), so I'd be interested in giving this a go. I can't wear orangy-reds like Flirt Alert appears to be, alas...but they do have a color called "Wild Card" that they describe as Pomegranate - I might be tempted to try that one for a splash of color. So hard to tell online, of course.

I love the nude color. It seems really easy to wear. I love red lips, but they're too high maintenance for me.
