Benefit Ultra Plush Lipgloss - Kiss You


I was lucky enough to get this lip gloss for free by winning a Facebook competition. It was called the Colour Me competition for the launch of the new Benefit Colour collection which includes powder and creme shadows and lip glosses in lots of beautiful shades. I won the Ultra Plush lip gloss in the shade Kiss You.
It came in the most gorgeous packaging as everything Benefit does. The packaging is art deco inspired and it looks great before I've even tried it out on my lips.

My first glance at the purple tube and i thought oh no its too dark. But after trying the colour out I was pleasantly surprised that it goes on a candy pinky purple colour which isn't too dark for my pale completion at all.
Because of the colour of the bottle and swatch photo on the website I would never even try out a tester of this colour if it was in front of me in store as I would automatically assume that it would be too dark but it has really opened my eyes to try shades that I usually wouldn't touch.

A pet hate for me and my husband is sticky lip glosses, you don't want your hair and face getting into a sticky mess with one gust of wind and my husband refuses to kiss me with lip gloss on in the past as it was sticky. Fear no more ladies this lip gloss has a new no sticky formula and I can vouch for it. It is lovely and soft and smooth and most importantly not sticky. This shades gives my face a lovely pop of colour as I like the rest of my make up to be quite neutral. The colour is also great for daytime and work as it isn't too bright I would say it is just bright for daytime glamour.
Thank you Benefit for my lip gloss I will definitely get my wear out of it.
