A Gift! – Benefit Her Glossiness A-List Lip Gloss in Talk to My Agent

May 20, 2009
By

I recently received a thoughtful gift from the lovely Kim, who generously gave me a stunning lipgloss from Benefit because she knew the colour was very me. With shades of plum and mauve similar to those in my beloved MAC Hyper and Bobbi Brown Black Pearl, this your-lips-but-better lipgloss is precisely that – my lips but better. Awesome!

It isn’t as pigmented as Hyper, of course but its sheerness makes it the perfect nude gloss because it evens them out without the intensity. I like how the slick of colour brings a healthy look to my lips. This shiny gloss is shot through with multi-coloured shimmer too; just look at its complexity!

I’m not fond of the scent (sorry, Kim :P) – it reminds me of the synthetic fragrance of a grape-coloured Bonne Bell lipgloss I owned a long time ago. However, I liked that gloss because of its shade and appearance, as I do this Benefit one. In fact, I prefer Talk to My Agent and am hoping the scent dissipates, for I can certainly see it becoming a much-used item.

Thank you, BB Cream Queen!

    Hi Plue~

    She is. Was very touched when she offered to CP something for me when she visited another country – the way she asked was so sincere and kind. :)

    Do you have any drugstore glosses to recommend? I really like your reviews, but some are a little expensive. Thanks so much.

      Hi Tiffany,

      Za has a good range of lipglosses. Heroine Make also has some nice nude ones. :)
