Benefit Fauxmance Ultra Plush Lipgloss
Benefit Fauxmance Ultra Plush Lipgloss

Benefit Fauxmance Ultra Plush Lipgloss ($16.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft berry.” It squeezes out and looks like a coral rose with soft white shimmer, and then applied, it’s a light coral-pink with a glossy, reflective sheen. MAC Persistent Peach is a touch lighter and has a creamier consistency. Chanel Mystery is very close in color but glossier. MAC Strange Potion is darker, more coral. Dior Pink Veil is pinker.

Fauxmance has a gel-like consistency that feels comfortable on the lips, glides on easily, and has a lot of slip, but it doesn’t feel thick or heavy when worn.  The color coverage of this particular shade is semi-sheer to semi-opaque with some translucency that allows the natural lip color to come through.  What I liked was that this didn’t turn out to be too creamy or milky, so it doesn’t settle into lip lines noticeably nor have problems where pressing your lips would cause lines to show up.  The lipgloss has a sweet, fruity scent but no real taste to me.  The biggest downside, though, is this slips into oblivion within two hours, which is really short wear compared to the average lipgloss (in my experience).

Great coverage, texture, and overall feel, but the wear is short; and if you don't typically get four hours (maybe you get two), expect even less.

  1. Too bad it wears off so soon, because I really like the color :-(

    This is really just leaving me flat. I don’t know; it seems a really common color that doesn’t do much, plus if it lasts that short a time on you it’d be gone from my lips in thirty minutes or less. I give it a resounding “…meh.”

    It swatches very pretty, but it doesn’t seem to show up much on your lips :(

    Benefit is really pushing this new collection hard. Too bad it’s such a snoozefest.

      I really like it actually on your lips; so natural.

    When I looked at the swatch on your lips I almost commented “Christine I think you forgot to put the lipgloss on!” It just doesn’t show up…

  6. Monica!

    This doesn’t look that glossy, does it? but the color is lovely. The wear time is not off putting for me, glosses don’t last very long on me anyways…

  7. I like this one more than some of the other new ones I’ve seen. Very pretty for spring! :D

  8. To me, this is nothing super exciting, but it is lovely and very flattering. A quick & easy lip shade to throw on :)
