Benefit Lip Gloss Review and Swatches
Benefit has replaced many of it's glosses with a single new line of gloss in eight shades.
The formula is supposedly a glossy finish with a great color payoff and most important a dazzling shine.
What did I think of them?

So long as you go into your purchase of Benefit Lip Gloss believing it to be more of a lip cream than a gloss you should be alright. It's a very interesting formula that isn't particularly glossy or shiny but more of a creamy lip color.
I tried three shades of the new gloss and I loved the fact that they had such great color payoff. Each one was quite pigmented and left behind a creamy, sparkling finish. It's not really a typical gloss in my opinion as the texture and formula are quite creamy in nature. One shade did have a slightly gritty texture due to the amount of shimmer in the product but it still managed to apply nicely. The shades all wear pretty long and have a moisturizing formula so they won't try out your lips.
The shades I tried were Zone Out (Golden Nude), Almost Famous (Bronze Penny), and Fresh Squeezed (Shimmering Off Pink). I loved all three shades but I was particularly delighted with Almost Famous as it paired up so great with many of my Summer looks this season.
So long as your purchasing these for the pigmentation you should be ok but don't expect a super glossy finish. I thought that the formula of Benefit Her Glossiness was rather ideal for a glossy finish but these lacked the standard mirror shine you'll get from many "glosses" which is why I'm seeing them more as a creamy lip color.
Overall, the shades are very nice and if you prefer a gloss that isn't super sticky, tacky, or shiny these should appeal especially if you love a highly pigmented lip product!
