“ Brand: Benefit / Type: Lipgloss „
I have an extremely kind Auntie and Uncle who every Christmas buy me something from either Urban Decay or Benefit as they know that I couldn't afford to treat myself to something like that. And this year I received the Benefit Her Glossiness Gift Set and I couldn't have been more impressed. It retails for around £25 and is well worth the money.
As with all Benefit products the first thing I notice is the gorgeous packaging and this did not let me down. It comes in a quite hard bright pink cardboard box which slides out to reveal the lip glosses. They are double ended which I think is brilliant as you can just pop one in your bag and if you get bored you have 2 in 1! The actual applicator is a very soft sponge which makes it very easy to apply and it just glides on. The actual tubes are a clear plastic which means you can see how much you have left.
The colours contained in this box include -
Life on the A list - Bright pink
Who are you wearing? - Deep sparkly pink
Who does your work? - A purple colour
Talk to my agent - A dark plummy purple colour
Next question please. - A gold shimmery colour
Kiss you - A clear pink with a subtle sparkle
I love the names the Benefit products always have they make them really unique rather than just boring numbers. I'd say this set is definitely worth the money as the lip glosses last a very long time and are not as gloopy or sticky as you may find with other gloss.
Until last year I was a Benefit virgin, however after purchasing this product I was a convert.
The packaging is attractive and easily recognisable. As it is fairly compact, it fits into a handbag or overnight bag with ease.
The box is easy to open and once inside the inner packaging slides out to reveal three double ended lip glosses in assorted colours including glittery and matt. The colours are versatile and the variation would allow for both day and evening wear. The lip gloss has a sponge tipped applicator which ensures an even delivery of gloss onto your lips.Obviously it depends if you use one or all of the colours but I have found that each gloss lasts for a long time both in time and on your lips!
Good value for money and from personal experience I am aware that this product can be washed out of clothing too!
I was given Benefit Her Glossiness Gift Set as a present from my boyfriend's parents for my 21st birthday. They have always been great at buying presents but this alongside the other bits that they bought me surpassed any expectations that I had.
*About the Product*
Wham! Bam! You're totally glam! We've wrapped up 6 shimmering new lip glosses in 1 fabulous kit. So much gorgeous gloss at such a value...you'll be ready to kiss and tell!
Benefit Her Glossiness is as simple as it gets when it comes to putting it on your lips. Choose which lip gloss colour you intend on apply and remove the correct end of the lip gloss. It has a specially designed soft cushion paddle so all you need to do is coat your lips gently in the gloss and you are then ready to rock and roll. The gloss is smooth which allows you to apply it easily. Not a lot of the gloss is necessary for it to look sheen and give a nice shine.
*Price and Availability*
Benefit Her Glossiness Gift Set is available to buy from most department stores, such as Debenhams, John Lewis and Boots at their Benefit make-up counter. If you prefer to buy things via the internet, you can purchase it on www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk.
You can buy this set for £25. Yes it is a lot of money as are most Benefit cosmetics but keep in mind that this is 6 lip glosses not just one and they are a great quality. So splash the cash, it's worth it.
The packaging: The overall packaging of the three lip gloss wands is a typical Benefit, brightly packaged cardboard box. Extrovert, bright and bold. The packaging of the lip glosses are very different to the individuals as there are three wands with two lip glosses at each end of them. These wands are quite basic and simple yet sleek and good to look at. In the middle is a base piece of hard, black plastic and from this two stick applicators are attached. The applicators have a specially designed soft cushion paddle for ease of use. The tubes filled with lip gloss are clear plastic enabling you to see how much is in them.
Texture, taste and smell: Unlike a lot of lip glosses, these are not gloopy, cheap-feeling or too thick. In fact, I think that they get the texture and consistency of the product pretty much spot on. A little is required to coat your lips and leave them looking glossy. This product has an ever so slightly sweet taste and smell but it is very slight.
Staying Power: With regards to how long the lip gloss lasts, it is actually very good, unlike the indivudals which is completely baffling. Perhaps they have since looked at the negatives of the product and made some changes to the ingredients. Whatever it is they have done has been successful as it now lasts a good three or more hours before disappearing from my lips. I'm happy with that.
What colours are in the set? In the Benefit Her Glossiness set you get three double ended glosses which means six different gorgeous coloured glosses. These are:
- Life On The A List (a bright, bubble gum pink colour) When I first saw this colour in the tube I thought "I will never wear that colour" but when you apply it to your lips it is very different and I actually really like it. Perfect for a more youthful look.
- Who Are You Wearing? (a deep pink sparkling colour) Another colour that I wasn't instantly taken with but I love it now and wear it frequently, especially on evening out.
- Who Does You Work? (a block pink/purple colour) I have always wanted to buy this colour but never quite been brave enough to so it was the perfect opportunity for me to give it a whirl and I like it but it is probably my least favourite of them all.
- Talk To My Agent (a dark plum colour) I find this colour perfect to achieve a sophisticated look and wear it a lot at work in meetings when I'm trying to impress.
- Next Question Please (a golden shimmer colour) A great golden colour that is perfect for the summer months when you have a golden tan.
- Kiss You (a clear fuchsia with a slight sparkle) This is by far my favourite colour as it is a twist on the usually clear as it is an ever so slightly tinted pink colour with pieces of glitter in. I think it is perfect for day and night wear.
Longevity of the product: How long do these lip glosses last? This is difficult to say because I have used them for just under a year and there still seems to be loads in all but one of them which I have used a lot more than the rest. I would say that the whole set will last you almost 2 years. Now when you break down the cost, you'll understand why I think that they are great value for money.
*Would I Recommend This Product?*
Love experimenting with different colours on your lips? This is perfect for you if you do. This set with six colours included in the three double-ended tubes offer plenty of colour options that suit all skin types. It gets my approval and recommendation to others, that's for sure. I recommend it highly if you are looking for a present to give to a friend, sister, mum or any other female friend. They'll thank you for it, trust me.
Call me nuts, but I actually think that this product is better in a gift set. I found the consistency of the lip gloss to be different with greater staying power, and I think that perhaps the applicator is different. It is a lip gloss that gives them a glossy sheen and looks great.
This Benefit product - Her Glossiness - is once again a fusion of design and amusing naming. Benefit excell in their choice of naming and packaging making this a perfect treat for yourself and a lovely gift for a friend. Included in this product are three lip gloss sticks, each one double ended meaning six shades are included in total.
Each individual stick has two complimentary shades on them. This means that this lipgloss is portable and brings in the day-to-night element so useful in this fast paced society. Either use the paler of each shades during the day and darker at night or layer the plain coloured shades with the shiny come the evening to create a lovely gloss.
Relatively expensive products, as with all Benefit items, however since there are 6 glosses included, all in usable shades this product lasts for a long amount of time thus meaning it doesnt have to be bought very frequently.
My sister got me this lip-gloss set for my birthday a good couple of years ago, and the fact that I still have them says it all!
Although they may seem to be in small tubes, they really do last a long time.
The colours are fabulous and there is a different shade for every occasion. The bright pink and orangey colour is my favourite.
The lip-gloss is applied with a small brush and goes on very well. The flavour is very yummy so make sure you don't lick it all off! However the lip-gloss is very sticky, so if you have your hair down it is likely to get stuck, which is not a good look!
The packaging is beautiful and would look lovely on anyone's dressing table. Also the fact you get two colours in one is a plus, as it means you can change your look when out and about.
Overall there is a lovely selection of colours which you can mix and match with any outfit. The quality is very good which is why it is worth paying that little bit extra. The only downfall is the stickiness, but what can you expect - it is lip-gloss after all.
Benefit Her Glossiness Gift Set
I received these lipgloss for a christmas prsent last year.
The products come in a little cardborad box with 3 lip gloss each with two shades on either end. This is a great product for trying different benefit shades. There is a wide varity of shades to suit every occasion. The colours are very bright and very shiny. Having a doubled ended lip gloss allows the opportunity to change the colour of your lip gloss through out the day. The lip glosses are very long lasting, they smell lovely and are not too sticky.
If you have never tried Benefit make up before, this is a great product as it allows you to try all the different shades and finds out what works for you.
Overall I loved these glosses so much that have bought them for a christmas gift for a friend this year.
Benefit Her Glossiness Gift Set
I received these lipgloss as a present for my birthday from a friend as I absolutely love lip gloss.
The products come in a cut little box with 3 lip gloss each with two shades on each 'wand'. This gives quite a lot of variety and a lip gloss to go with every outfit. My favourity is the light pink colour as I tend to stick to nude lips so this colour is perfect. The colours are very bright so very on trend, especially the bright pink colour. These lip glosses are small and thin so fit in your bag perfectly. You can even change your mind through the night and alternate colours.
The lip glosses themselves are very long lasting and gloss so they stay on all night and make you lips look really good. They also have a very nice smell and are non-sticky - well as non sticky as lip gloss can be.
Overall I would recommend this product. Unsure of the price as I received this as a gift but would buy this product myself as well.
Imagine my delight when, last birthday, I ripped off some ugly flowered wrapping paper to reveal not one, but three (well, six really) beautiful Benefit products in a funky box with a fab title.
Her Glossiness is a shiny not gloopy, soft not sticky, sweet not sickly lip gloss wand which comes in gorgeous colours with just the right amount of sparkle (I was guilty of over-sparkling in my teenage days. I have learnt from past mistakes).
This gift set comes with six colours, four of which I've actually worn outside the house (the other two are reserved for playing "dress up" in the privacy of my flat). The colour in the middle on the bottom on the picture is particularly pretty (and tasty) in my opinion.
The only problem I can think of with this product is that the three pinkest colours are all very similar when they're on your lips, and the two vampiest colours are a bit too "vampy" for me. Thus really there are only two colours in practice. However, this does not matter because I love SETS and one lip gloss on its own (or even two) wouldn't be a set and I wouldn't be able to line them up on my dressing table in a special order (like I used to do with those huge sets of colouring pencils I had as a kid).
This is an ideal gift for a girly girl who is in their teens or twenties (I can't vouch for the rest of the population). It has fab packaging and is a great product. Besides, buy a girl a Benefit product and you can't really go wrong!
I received this as a gift for Christmas and can safely say that this set of lip glosses definitely make a good present to any make-up lover - the packaging is lovely and sophisticated, there was almost no need for this product to be wrapped up!
This gift set contains 3 double-ended lip glosses containing 6 wonderful shades, from deep red and pale pink to glittery gold - there really is a shade to suit everyone. Usually in gift sets people will favour some shades over others, however every shade in this set is a firm favourite of mine and they have all been used equally! Each stick of lipgloss contains one light and one dark shade, so if you go out you can pop one stick in your bag and you have two co-ordinating colours to choose from to change your look as you please.
The lip gloss itself applies evenly and it even has a moisturising quality to it, making lips feel silky smooth. The formula is non-sticky, I have worn the matt 'nude' colour to a theme park and despite going on several rollercoasters I had no problem with my hair sticking to my lips, which would no doubt be a problem with other brands.
The product is quite long-lasting... or it would be if it didn't smell and taste so divine - I often find myself having to reapply after I've licked it off! Despite daily applications, the clear tubes show me that I have a considerable amount of product left which is pleasantly surprising.
As it was a gift I'm not sure what price was paid for it, however if it is in line with the usual high price of Benefit products then I would say this is justifiable, as you are getting 6 colours which last a long time. Definitely recommendable!
These are almost what they say on the box.
As always with benefit they are well presented in a cute little box. They do make a good present, just put in a gift bag without wrapping up!!!
The colours I have are all quite pink and may not be everyone's choice, although I do believe there are other colour sets available.
As in the description they are not sticky at all. They sort of dry on the lip fairly quickly and don't feel tacky or like it will rub off as soon as it's touched. I did find though that in a situation where I was eating and drinking the gloss came off quite soon (I know that often happens, but I was hoping with the premise they would last a little longer....)
Having several different shades is useful as you can very quickly change you look very quick.
They are great and I like them, but as with all make-up, although they have advantages and are more aesthetic than most, there is nothing outstandingly different!!!!
I got bought these for my birthday this year, having never used any Benefit make-up before. However, I can't get enough of the stuff now! These lip glosses are so silky and smooth, they manage to stay evenly all over lips without the usual large amount gathering in the corners and none on the main part of your lips!The range of colours is also brilliant, unlike with some sets you get there's always 1 or maybe 2 you don't really like or use but with these I have used all love them all. There seems to be a different colour for all occasions/seasons etc. The fact that they're double ended also, makes them even better for me, as I only need to take one stick out with me but have the choice of two colours - perfect! I'm not sure how much they are as i obviously had them as a gift but I'd buy them again no matter what the price.
The Her Glossiness Gift Set contains 3 double ended lip glosses; so there are 6 different colours in all. Each pen has a darker colour and matching lighter colour; there are 2 red coloured glosses, 2 purple and 2 pink.
The six colours are called:
* life on the A-list (bubble gum pink)
* who are you wearing? (passion fruit pink)
* who does your work? (sheer wine)
* talk to my agent (sugar plum shimmer)
* next question please (golden berry shimmer)
* kiss you (clear fuchsia)
In the normal range, only offering 4 colours, there is no clear tinted gloss which is a great benefit, no pun intended, of this set. There is also a great range of colours, some not normally available, which give the range a feel of exclusivity.
The tube of gloss is clear which allows you to see how much you have left, with a screw-on black lid. The brush is average and allows for smooth, sheer application and does not get too messy. Said to be high gloss these glosses meet expectations. There is a good balance between too-shiny and shiny-enough and the glosses are not sticky. This is great as the amount of glosses I have tried which stick my hair to my lips are countless. These glossies are also spectacularly silky and quite soft; they don't have a plastic-y look and don't look too wet. The addition of jojoba oil moisturises lips nicely and makes quite a difference; as Benefit say, it leaves your lips feeling 'five-star pampered'. Each gloss has a slightly different smell, my two favourites smell of candy floss and another of bubblegum.
Overall, these are great glosses which perform really well, with the added benefit of jojoba oil. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
