Did I mention it’s fat free?
Do me a quick favor and check your blush stash, boo. If you find enough peaches to bake a cobbler, then I’d like you to meet my new go-to girl, Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick in Sugar Cookie ($18).
The color — a warm, shiny peach with flecks of gorgeous gold — has been around for a while as a permanent member of Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipstick line. Like the other Silky Finish gals, she’s got a thin, creamy texture (very hydrating, to boot) that glides on slick and smooth, and I think she looks GREAT paired with peach blushes like Benefit Georgia, NARS Orgasm, MAC Sunbasque, MAC Margin and MAC Peaches.
Do you remember the sparkly glitter from last week’s look with MAC Lipgelee in Resort Life (part of the Venomous Villains release)? — how it ended up all over the place? Well, Sugar Cookie isn’t messy like that at all. Her golden glitter stays put, but all is not peaches in the garden of golden glitter.
Sadly, this Sugar Cookie disappears faster than…sugar cookies, or the box of toffee macadamia nut chocolates I opened last night right before bed.
My thighs keep telling me “No,” but my taste buds keep telling me “YES!”
I have to reapply Sugar Cookie often — about every two hours or so — unless I layer it atop a nude lip liner, which almost doubles her wear time.

Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: Some gals may not dig Sugar Cookie’s weak wear time, but a nude liner helps. If you wear peach cheek colors like NARS Orgasm often, you might want to give this cookie a try. Available now at Benefit counters and Benefit.com. Grade: A
Speaking of the Benefit Silky Finish Lipsticks…
Anybody else notice the Silky Finish lipsticks marked as new on sephora.com?
I got excited for a second before I remembered Breathless (a muted grape with a pearl finish) and French (a creamy cherry red) actually aren’t new; both shades have been around for years.
I’m not sure why Sephora marked them as new, but I still think they sound like pretty fall colors.
