Benefit Candy Store Lipstick

The Spring Season: Benefit Candy Store Lipstick

Benefit Candy Store Lipstick ($18.00) is a semi-sheer medium pink with golden shimmer and a glossy sheen. On my lips, it really deepens and emphasizes the natural rosy-pink of my lip color while adding golden shimmer and a reflective, glossy sheen. Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipsticks have this really moisturizing, glossy feel. It’s almost like lipstick and lipgloss had a baby and called it Silky Finish. It’s very wearable all on its own, partially because it does have such a nice sheen without having to add a gloss (which also makes it convenient to keep in your bag!).

Is this the right pink lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

    I feel like it looks really similar to MACs new Fresh Salmon (which I really want to get my hands on!) Which one do you prefer?? And which one do you think would last longer?

    This color is fantastic, but for some reason I have an issue with lipstick that’s not shaped like lipstick. I know that’s weird, but it bothers me. LOL!
