Benefit Silky-Finish Lipstick in Skinny Dip: Review and Swatch

Packaging for Benefit's Silky-Finish Lipstick

Benefits Skinny Dip is described as a nude pink lipstick. Upon opening the container the lip color looks a bit dark and more brown but after swatching it I had fallen in love with the color. It is a lovely nude color that is not too fleshy and can go on more sheer or really rich color depending on how much you put on. It is a silky-finish so it is quite soft and creamy on. It has a bit of a sheen on the lips but not like a gloss and not completely matte. What I love about this lipstick is that it doesn't dry out my lips like many other lipsticks I have, It makes my lips feel smooth and moisturized. It is a bit on the more expensive side for lipsticks, $23 at Sephora.

Overall, I love the nude with that hint of pink and the way it feels on. It doesn't feel heavy or like my lips are drying out from wearing it. However, they don't last the longest and the price is a bit steep, even M.A.C lipsticks are a bit cheaper than these.
