Benefit A-Lister Ultra Plush Lipgloss
Benefit A-Lister Ultra Plush Lipgloss

Benefit A-Lister Ultra Plush Lipgloss ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bubblegum pink.” It’s a pale, milky pink-beige with white shimmer. MAC Warm Embrace is pinker and darker. Chanel Allegorie is less shimmery and sheerer. Urban Decay Obsessed is much pinker. Chanel Caprice is darker and pinker.

The texture is very gel-like; thicker than some glosses but not in a heavy, goopy way, but in a creamy, gel kind of way. It’s non-sticky from the get-go and stays that way throughout the wear. With A-Lister, the wear wasn’t too impressive–a mere two and a half hours. You can definitely move it around on the lips, which is likely why it doesn’t hold on as long as some other glosses do. For as milky as the color is, it didn’t settle too noticeably into lip lines and yielded rather even coverage overall. It was semi-opaque in color; enough that it substantially altered my natural lip color but still allowed it to come through. The formula was lightly hydrating–no replacement for a true lip balm but a great daytime alternative that gives some color.

The gloss also has a sweet, fruity scent–I did notice a bit initially after applying, and I’m not particularly sensitive to scents, so if you aren’t a fan of that type of scent, you might want to sniff it in store, first.  It comes in a squeeze-tube with a slanted-tip applicator.

I wish this lipgloss applied more evenly and wore longer, because then it would be a more compelling shade.

    I don’t get the hype with these glosses. I bought two because everyone was raving, but the wear time is pathetic. it was gone within 30 minutes with me because I sip on coffee/water while at work.

      I agree. I bought one – Coralista – and the wear time is terrible. Also it leaves my lips feeling super dry after it’s gone!

  2. Looks alright, but not more than that.

    I think you listed MAC Embrace Me instead of MAC Warm Embrace- the link goes to MAC Warm Embrace though

    The color looks beautiful! How does this compare to Turkish Delight by Nars?

    I love this color. It looks like it would be perfect for the Spring and Summer :)

    I wonder how close this is to Loreal Color Riche Le Gloss in Baby Blossom. This looks like it might have more shimmer.

  7. I have the glosses that were releases last year and I really lke them. The feel is very cushy and smooth, which I like a lot. Some of the shades were kinda “meh” but overall, I like these a lot. I don’t think I would bother with this particular shade since it is kinda like every other gloss, but I am excited to see their other new releases! :)

    Milky pinks are not my thing, but it does look nice on you. Maybe I’ll look at one of the other shades. I have a small one of Dandelion somewhere, but it was so sheer on me I didn’t bother with it.

  9. I love your eye makeup in this post Christine! It’s nice and natural looking, love your blog so much!
