Benefit's Hydra-Smooth Lip Colour in Dare Me Review


Hey everyone! I'm reviewing a lipstick from my all-time favourite beauty brand, Benefit!

The shade I'm reviewing is called Dare Me, it's a vivacious hot pink colour that stands out beautifully! I find it a gorgeous colour, that isn't too bold (I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to bold lip colours) but is highly pigmented and stunning.

Application: As the name suggest, it goes on smoothly; it was easy to apply! It didn't dry out my lips (I suffer from really flaky lips) and made them look smooth. 5/5

Colour: Gorgeous! I'm in love with hot pinks. 5/5

Longevity: It stayed on after walking round town and drinking an iced lemonade fairly well. 3.5/5

Packaging: The packaging is absolutely gorgeous! It sort of looks like a Greek architectual column, which is so appealing to me as a uni student! Once again, Benefit doesn't fail on the packaging front. I love how Benefit packages their products, it's a real strength of theirs! It makes you love the product even more. 5/5

Packaging! (Sorry for the hair, it gets everywhere!)

You can buy this from any Benefit counter in stores like Boots or Debenhams for £15. (I used my Debenhams card to get £5 off!)

Thanks for reading!


  1. I love Hoola by Benefit and have been keen to try some more of their products! I just treated myself to their "They're Real" mascara which I'm loving and I feel a lip product could be next! This bright shade would be a great contrast to my more neutral autumn make up staples!
