Like many BellaSugar readers, WhiplashGirlchild tends toward lip gloss rather than lipstick. So I was intrigued by her positive review of Benefit Cosmetics Silky Finish Lipstick ($16), and I thought I'd let her tell you what she likes about it and what she doesn't for today's user review. (Write your own reviews in the Beauty Product Junkies group, and I might post yours on BellaSugar too.) Here's WhiplashGirlchild's take:


I've been strictly a gloss girl for a long time. I haven't bought a lipstick in years. So I was a bit nervous to try out a lipstick. But I liked this color and I had a coupon code, so I purchased Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in Hug It Out, which they describe as a "pink nectar (pearl)" color.

Okay. Now, when I received the lipstick, it didn't look anything like a pink nectar to me. It's more like a medium pinky-brown with a bit of shimmer. Good thing I like to have pinky-brown lips.

So the color being off was a happy accident; I'm okay with that. The lipstick goes on very lightly and feels pretty velvety, more like a light gloss then a lipstick. It's not thick or sticky but smooth. It barely feels like I'm wearing anything at all.


This is me wearing it and holding the tube so you can see what the actual color is. If I were you, I'd buy Benefit's Silky Finish Lipstick at a counter if possible, since the color was so off. But if it weren't for the color being off, I'd give it five stars!
