Benefit I Think I Love You Full-Finish Lipstick
Benefit I Think I Love You Full-Finish Lipstick

Benefit I Think I Love You Full-Finish Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bronze rose.” It’s an apt description; it’s a sultry plummy rose with a metallic-like frost to it. The color coverage is nearly opaque. Clarins Blackberry is a creamier version–it doesn’t have the frosted finish. MAC Snazzy is redder and has fuchsia shimmer. MAC One of a Kind is a little brighter, less muted.

It delivers the medium to full color coverage the lipstick is supposed to, and it does so with a really smooth, melt-on-your-lips kind of color.  It applies evenly, and it doesn’t take a lot of product to get the really opaque look.  The texture is creamy enough to allow the slanted tip to glide across the lips with ease, but it isn’t thick or heavy, so it doesn’t slide around and get onto teeth.  There’s no discernible taste or scent, which may be a plus for some.  It is moisturizing, too, which is good, because I was able to get five hours of wear out of this shade during testing.

I Think I Love You

A
Kind of like a sleeper hit--Benefit's Full-Finish Lipstick has excellent color payoff, comfortable wear, and moisturizes. This is such a great shade for fall/winter, because it's darker, plummier, but it isn't vampy, so it's wearable with many different looks.

    Well I think I love it, too! I’m almost out of MAC’s Fresco and I need another pink lipstick.

  2. Oh man, I just placed a Sephora order. I wish I had seen this review before I hit “submit”. :(

  3. Amount is too little for this price. Color will disappear on my lips.

    Dear Christine! Thank you for this review! I’d like to ask you what eyeliner and eyeshadows did you use? This make up (btw it applies to most of your make ups ;-) looks very good on you! I also have dark hair and brown eyes and I’d love to be able to create such look for myself. thanks in advance! ps – how do you color the waterline? it looks very difficult to make… and then to wash.

    How do you think this would look with darker skin? Mac nc45

    I think these lipsticks are one of the best out there. Especially if you have dry lips like me. I hope to get more in the future. Thanks for the review.

    Oh and BTW Christine that color looks really flattering on you. It brightens up your face and looks very natural. Just thought you would want to know lol .

  16. Really love this color lipstick! I think I will have to pick it up!

  17. Oh man, this shade is beyond beautiful, and it looks absolutely lovely on you! This looks like one of those “goes with everything” colors!

  18. This looks so pretty for an elegant every day color !

    It looks beautiful. I can’t bring myself to spend much money on lipstick, though, unless it lasts all day.

    I love this! Do you think it would suit a fair, cool complexion?

    How does this compare to MAC Oh oh oh! from MAC Me Over? My immediate thought was “omg want!” but it does look a lot like that one, which I already own. (Speaking of Oh oh oh! it definitely wins for looking nothing like it does in the tube when it’s on your lips!)
