Benefit’s Six New Ultra Plush Lip Glosses Lightly Tint Lips While Treating Them to a Moisturizing Formula

Published in: Benefit, Lips, Makeup

Benefit Fauxmance Ultra Plush Lip Gloss

Wearing the new Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Fauxmance ($16), one of six new glosses coming this March

Got any extra room in your book bag? How ’bout that secret pocket where you stash those emergency Fun Size Snickers bars and cat treats (because you never know when you’ll meet a sweet stray)? If you do, lucky you! Because you’ll want to make room for these new $16 Ultra Plush Lip Glosses from Benefit.

They’re just so cute! And Art Deco-ey (I don’t think that’s a real word…).

I love the scalloping at the top and the fonts. Plus, all six new shades are sheer enough to apply easily without a mirror, so as your professor drones on about the Krebs Cycle, you can gloss your lips without missing one minute of the metabolic pathway excitement. (P.S. You’ll forget it all in 10 years.)

As part of the relaunch of their color collection this spring, Benefit’s also revamping their glosses, ditching their Ultra Shines for this new line of Ultra Plushes, which are lightly tinted, non-sticky glosses with a faint fruit punch flavor and scent and a wear time from 2-3 hours.

Remember the Ultra Plushes Benefit released late last year to go with their boxed blushes? The six new shades coming to the permanent line soon are members of the same family.

FYI, in the event that you snarf down half a bag of Trader’s Joe’s Olive Oil Popcorn while watching Snookie and J-Woww one afternoon (it happens), you’ll need to reapply, as these don’t hold up well to snacks or meals.

I like having a few sheer lipglosses around, and these fill that need just fine. Plus, they make my dry lips say, “Yay!”

The light tint and lack of glitter might bother some gals, but I kinda like these. If you’re all about the shimmer and pigment, you may dig these more for the packaging than the actual product inside.

PRICE: $16 for a 0.05-ounce tube

    I love your top, woman!!! Where’d you get??! <3

  2. Nicole Shrimpton says:

    I would probably buy these just for the box, darn you benefit and your cute packaging!

  3. I’m not a fan of sheer lipglosses because what’s the point when it gives the same effect as a clear one? That being said, I might try and get my hands on one of these seeing as I don’t have many clear lipglosses and love the non-stickiness factor! Not to mention, the packaging is CUTE.

    Well I can see getting one of these, but the shades are close enough I don’t see the need for lots. I got Dallas this summer, sonothing close (I’d want to see these compared to Coralista and Bella Bamba).

  13. These shades look so bright and fun! The packaging is cute and I like that it corresponds with the new packaging for the Creaseless Cream shadows but to be honest, I think I liked the other packaging for these Ultra Plush Lip Glosses better. They were so vibrant and bold and fun! These are definitely cute but I feel like the packaging kind of just fades into the background…

  17. Kathleen says:

    Oh no… I love my Ultra Shines! This makes me really disappointed, as I rarely wear the 6 mini ultra plushes I have…

  18. Their isn’t much difference between these lip colors … it is very lite and transparent. I like bit dark shades.
