Benefit Saucy Full-Finish Lipstick
Benefit Saucy Full-Finish Lipstick

Benefit Saucy Full-Finish Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sparkling tangerine.” This is a lovely brightened coral-orange with peach and copper shimmer. It delivers mostly opaque color coverage. CoverGirl Rapture is similar in the base color, though a bit more orange. MAC Drive Me Wild is like a much deeper, redder version, but it has the same coppery shimmer. Milani Cora Bora Bora is frostier but the colors are similar–just no gold shimmer in this one. Dior Coral is in the same vein but with subtler shimmer. It’s a bit pinker but reminded me of Guerlain Gems.

Benefit’s Full-Finish Lipsticks are supposed to deliver medium to full coverage with a smooth finish. They’re really creamy and have a nice glide. For a lipstick with as much slip as this one, I was surprised that it wore so well–it lasts a solid four hours and almost makes it to five. I didn’t detect any scent or taste either!  I also liked how moisturizing this one; it’s quite hydrating and wears comfortably for hours without leaving lips feeling parched.

Kind of like a sleeper hit--Benefit's Full-Finish Lipstick has excellent color payoff, comfortable wear, and moisturizes. Perhaps not the most wintry color available, but maybe keep it on the radar for spring and summer.

  1. This is a really interesting and unique looking color with the shimmer! I’d love to see more of these Christine! :)

  2. This is a pretty coral. I don’t even like corals on me, but I can see myself wearing this. :)

  3. Whoa, I’ll definitely keep it on the radar for spring/summer! Such a nice coral with golden shimmer!

  4. Certainly keeping this in mind for summer! Could it be buildable, maybe more opaque for a stronger color? Darn it, I’m SUCH a sucker for sparkly pink/coral/golds in any product type! LOL (MAC Expensive Pink is on my radar after my bank account recovers from the holidays, hehe.)

  5. Its a great colour but I’m not a big fan of the glitters. They seem too big and they mostly end up everywhere. I bet its a great colour for a party or something tho! Too bad Benefit is quite hard to find where I live.

    I am bookmarking this for summer. I would also love to see more of these Christine. Thank you for remarking on the lack of scent and taste too–I always really appreciate that for all your lip color posts.

    I love these lipsticks. I am surprised they are not more popular. They are so moisturizing and great for my dry lips. I have Lady’s Choice and La La something or other and both of them are so natural looking. I wear them all the time.

    Hi christine. is this anything like Guerlain Automatique’s 142? Thanks. I’ll ask a friend to buy this for me but I have the 142 im afraid they might be of the same shade. Thanks
