Benefit - Hydra-Smooth Lip Colour - Nice 'n Teasy

Benefit - Hydra-Smooth Lip Colour - Nice 'n Teasy £15.00

I added this lipstick to my wishlist a couple of weeks back and about a week later I ordered it myself. I know I'm terrible but I was desperate to try it and my mum made me jealous by having one of these lipsticks already!

I've always liked Benefit lipsticks and although the packaging is usually smart it's also a bit nondescript. Now the packaging for this is magnificent, retro, rather 70's. I know I can't love a lipstick based on packaging alone but it is a good start.

The colour I opted for is nice 'n teasy, a rosy neutral, with a medium coverage. I wanted something I could wear to work, to the shops or even, as today's task was, to look after a cat. This lippy is incredibly moisturising, it applies like a lip balm. I do find this lipstick to last a little less longer than matte style lipsticks, I also think this is down to the colour as darker ones tend to stain. Not that this is a big issue, as this is the sort of lippy I'll be proud to pull out of my bag.

There are ten different shades in the collection ranging from sheer coverage to medium-full coverage so I'm pretty sure there will be something for everyone and the neat packaging makes for an amazing gift.
