Benefit has just released the most amazing line of gorgeous glosses based on their gorgeous blushes. Great idea, right? I love the idea of the matching shades, especially if you have a Benefit Blush you adore (ahem, Dandelion, anyone?). And the Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Glosses do just that! I got Bella Bamba, Coralista, Sugarbomb (MY FAVE) and Dandelion. They are quite sheer and moisturizing, which makes them easy to use and rather addictive. These are the least sticky glosses I have ever used which is a relief, as having my hair stick to my lips is not a good look for me. They have a subtle mango- fruity taste/scent that is reminiscent of a lip gloss from my youth. If you try them & recognize the scent, let me know!

If you are looking for huge colour pay off, then you may be frustrated with these. However, if you are looking for a nice soft lip gloss to match your cheeks, then you will love them! I love the idea of matchy matchy gloss and blush, it just makes for a polished and elegant look. And with the softness of the Benefit blushes, these lip glosses make for the perfect combination! My daughter loves Coralista for the coral orange tone, which is so very hot right now, very Pantone Tangerine Tango, if you will. I adore Dandelion, which is as soft and gentle as the Dandelion blush which I adore and reviewed here. But for some reason, Sugarbomb made me really fall in love. It has that sort of purple-taupe look I am loving these days, and even though it shows as super frosty in the swatch, that does not translate to the lips. Just shine. For the record, Bella Bamba and Coralista are sheer and jelly like with no shimmer, and Dandelion and Sugarbomb have a wee bit of frost. Verdict? Love.
Available wherever Benefit is sold, & on counters in May for $18
