benefit Full-Finish Lipstick in Shy Swatch and Review

With wacky and out of the box designs and innovations come Benefit Full-Finish Lipstick in Shy. The San Francisco based company puts the laughter on us that doubles as a flaunt-able and chic look.

Upon seeing the lipstick, the box art was a big surprise. There was a picture of a lovely lady that was from the betty page, who also seemed like she was from the 70s on TV. The creativity and use of glamour really appeals with a good laugh.

While taking the lipstick out, I immediately noticed the artwork on the lipstick case and the the picture of our lovely dame dropped out of the case and on its back it reads, “How do I love lipstick? Let me count the ways…” – Lana.

….and today we’re counting “Shy!”

Here is a close up pic of the lipstick popped open with a bit of the tip propped up.

The actually shape is in a unique curvy design and very lip hugging!

Here is a picture of the lipstick on full blast in the sunlight. The reflection and the shadow simply makes the lipstick very glamourous for it’s look.

Now comes to the actual lipstick swatched. Shy is a soft nude pink in semi-glossy finish that does not contain any shimmer. The curvy shape of the tip makes it glide on super smoothly and easily. It felt light-weight on the lips but at the same time very emollient and moisturizing. The texture is soft, creamy and butter-like. Pigmentation is in between medium to high with long lasting power that doesn’t dry out the lips. Also note, the lipstick doesn’t have any scent or taste to it, which is nice!

With black background and white polkadots, the lipstick came down as a bit humble yet shy for its color in the tube. Just like the shade suggests, the color is very lovely in nature. Meeting the lipstick on the lips gives a big shocker on how flattering and vibrant the color is. The amazing formula also makes it great for everyday wear!

    I like the color on you, but there’s no way I could pull it off. Also, the packaging is a bit ‘eh’ for me >_<" I'm not sure why, I just really dislike the whole image+black with swirls-thing. It looks kinda cheap to me : / I dunno..
