Benefit they're real! double the lip

If you have been reading my blog this week then you might have noticed that I have a lipstick things going on. I am obsessed with lipsticks right now - crayons, liquids, sticks, stains and so on and because there are so many amazing releases right now, it seemed like a great idea to have lip week on the blog!

The Benefit 'they're real' family is growing and moving on from the eyes where the family already has Mascara and eyeliner, we now have LIPS and more eyes which are coming in a separate post, but today we are doing they're real Double The Lip!

The description goes 'Get fuller-looking lips in one easy stroke with they’re real! double the lip'. So what you get is not just a lipstick, but a lipstick and lipliner in one, a total revelation for those like me who never ever remember the need for a lip liner and I can count on one hand how many I actually own!  The custom Teardrop tip is said to grab and define your lip line as well as filling the lips in with a complimenting colour for both the appearance of volume and dimension.  

There are eight double the lip products within the range and all of them are semi-matte with everything from your very nude neutral to the brighter more daring shades and here they are: 
  • Nude Scandal, 
  • Lusty Rose, 
  • Juicy Berry 
  • Pink Thrills

  • Criminally Coral
  • Revved-Up Red
It did take a while for me to get the hand of how these lipsticks worked. With the liner being at the top of the tear drop, remembering to turn it upside down to do your bottom lip was something I forget all the time and getting it to sit right on the outline of my lips has been testing, but I have persevered and can now master it with no problem, the curse of having thin lips!

What I love is how the liner and the lipstick compliment one another and work so well together. They are also not only really pigmented but also really moisturising too which is an added bonus plus the formula is so lightweight that once applied to the lips you forget that it is there. The longevity is also really impressive, once applied you get a good 4-5 hours wear time and after lunch when I have re-applied it stays again for the same amount of time and impressively I have found very very little transfer onto glasses or mugs when I have had a drink.

I am finding it hard to pick a favourite shade, I can narrow it down to three - Lusty Rose, Juicy Berry and Nude Scandal and those are the three I have used the most. I am not brave enough to even attempt to pull off the coral but it is beautiful.  If you have been wanting to add to your lipstick stash then I would definitely recommend investing in one, of these. They are just a little bit different to anything else you will own and regardless of your skin colour or tone there is something for everyone. Priced at £16.50 each double the lip is widely available from the likes of Benefit, John Lewis, House of Fraser, Boots stores, Lookfantastic, and ASOS to name just a few!


What do you think to these? Do any of the shades catch your eye?

  2. wow that is really clever and I think I would probably be the same as you, must remember to turn it! I absolutely love the Lusty Rose shade! I am glad you mention the lipsticks are also moisturising as I find some of the brighter shades can dry out the lips.

  5. My first thought when looking at the design of these was whether I would be able to master the liner portion on the lower lip. It sounds like it takes a bit of getting used to, but I do like the idea of having both in one product. The Nude Scandal and Lusty Rose are my favourites x
