Packaging:

“They’re Real Red On!” lip tint by Benefit Cosmetics comes in a compact square black single-shade palette with bevel edges. The lip color itself has a creative lip pattern on it. The palette conveniently houses an applicator brush and a small mirror. We found the design of the product to be very unique.

Texture:

This lip tint has a creamy texture.

Smell:

“They’re Real Red On!” lip color does not have any particular smell.

Color:

This product is available in one color only: “universally flattering red shade.”

Application:

Using the applicator brush, start by contouring the lips with the lip color. Fill in the space within the contoured lips with product and let rest for a couple of minutes.

Effect:

When we tested the “They’re Real Red On!” lip tint we noticed how easy it was to apply. The creamy texture of the lip color along with the gentle brush allowed for easy and mess-free application. We only needed one layer to coat the lips fully.

The lip color is a universal shade of red that is suitable for day as well as night make-up. And the finish is completely matte. The “They’re Real Red On!” felt very lightweight on the lips. It also had a long staying power and was more or less transfer-proof.

We realized after several uses that for optimal results, it is best to let the lip color dry for a few minutes on the lips to avoid smudging. “They’re Real Red On!” lip tint did not dry the lips and provided some moisturizing power due to its creamy texture.

Price:

“They’re Real Red On!” by Benefit Cosmetics retails at an average market price of $26/1.2g. This product is pricier than other similar products in the same range like Urban Decay’s “Low-Fi Lip Mousse” which sells at $22/3.5g and Clinique’s “Pop Lip Shadow” which retails at $19.5/1.2g.

    Thank you Ounousa for sending me this product! I love benefit products in general. I love the texture, it’s very easy to apply, long wearing and very comfortable. However, as a personal preference, I generally love my reds to be HIGHLY pigmented and the only thing I didn’t love as much as I’d hoped is the fact that you have to layer it to get the true red you see in the pan. But otherwise, it’s beautiful! I highly recommend it, especially if you want that subtle red that you could wear every day!

    I like it super easy to apply, small mirror for fix ups , the texture is great it will not dry your lips at all , what i liked most is that you control the shade by applying more layers if you want it darker . I like its size too

    A great red Liptick for a Nude Person

    Submitted by pascale dushfunian

    First let me start this by saying that i am a Nude Lipstick kinda girl, wearing red lipstick for me is super daring.

    let me start with the packaging, i loved the fact that u apply it with a brush, it gives u an incredible accuracy specially for a red lipstick where u need to be precise.

    the texture is amazing, and lasts super long , even if you try to remove it with a tissue the red effect is still there for the whole night.

    The shade as mentioned is universal , however i cant say is my ultimate ride or die shade of red, i love and wear nude lipsticks most of the time, thus feeling weird and extra everytime i wear a red one. i found the shade a bit daring and bright for my very fair skin , i guess i prefer a slighly darker shade.

    i am sure its a holy grail for red lipstick lovers

    First of all !! can I just say how beautiful this packaging is ?! it’s the cutest tiny lip tint I’ve ever seen. I am obsessed with this small brush, it’s always hard for me to get the edge of my lips right and matching on both sides, but with this brush, it was effortless! I love the texture of this tint and how it melts into your lips like you’re not wearing anything, and it dries instantly. I’m not gonna say it lasts all day, you’re gonna have to retouch especially after eating or drinking; but still, it holds well. I also want to say that this is RED RED and not dark red but you can add an additional layer for a darker color. Overall, I love this lip tint and I would recommend it.

    I would definitely recommend this product.

    Average Red but Long-lasting and Smudge Free

    Submitted by Maya Fawaz

    on

    – Packaging: Elegent, Compact/ Travel size. It’s very unique and the brush is also very useful for application. I love how lips are impressed into the lipstick which makes it look very nice.
    – Texture: Very smooth and easy to apply
    – Color: I was not a fan of this “red” color. It looks really nice in the package, however once applied, it gives a vintage – orangey red instead of the strong haute red. RUBY WOO by MAC is still my favorite. However, you can use it during a day since it’s not that strong, use several layers to make it more intense for a night look, or even apply a nude lipstick on to p of it, which turned it into a beautiful pink.
    – Effect: I loved how long lasting it is. It lasted literally all day, while fading into a more pinkish-red color. It is also smudge free and is absorbed by your lips to give a lip-tint kind of effect. It also keeps your lips looking fresh and doesn’t dry them at all.
    And so, if you are looking for a beautiful RED color, this is not the product for you. But if you’re looking for a long-lasting lipstick, this is definitely it.

    The product is a travel size package which makes it very functional. It comes with a helpful brush/applicator that makes it easier to apply the product.
    The texture is creamy, it doesn’t dry your lips and it shocked me that it matches my skin undertone but the only disadvantage is that you need to re-apply every couple of hours after eating or drinking.

    Love it

    Let’s start with the packaging, it is very handy and travel friendly, yet very cute and creative. It comes with a tiny mirror that I found it useless because I can see through unless I close one eye. It comes also with a brush that I loved
    Color: it is a true red, which is considered as a universal red that compliments many many many skin tones.
    Texture: it is the weirdest texture I’ve ever tried (in a positive way) it is so creamy yet not greasy, it is hydrating yet it dries down like a powder. Looks matte but not dried.
    Longevity: I don’t find it long lasting. It is long lasting if you don’t eat or drink, but when it fades out you can touch it up easily.
    Payoff: it is super pigmented and applies very very seamlessly, it layers up beautifully as well. The tiny tapered brush that comes along is very useful to draw the lines without using a lip liner. However the products bleeds so it is better to use a lip liner and since it is not transfer-proof if you touch your lips then accidentally touch your face it will leave a mess. So you have to be careful
    The Price: for the SIZE is too expensive
    Overall: I like this product, i love red lipsticks and it is easier to apply than Ruby woo (MAC), lighter than the 400 of Giorgio Armani. I recommend it for red lippies lovers (PS: it is vegan)

    The package is very cool and small it can fit easily in a purse. The applicator is very useful to contour the lips and to fill them easily. The mirror make the process flexible and applicable anywhere. The texture is creamy, rich and blendable. It doesn’t leave the lips dry or sricky in contrast to other matte lipsticks and it is long lasting lipstick . Finally, the color is hot and red can’t be better!

    So i got this with the ounousa pr box. I didn’t find the color to be my favorite 🥴 but nevertheless the formula was amazing. Usually matte lipsticks or tints are very drying but this one seemed pretty lightweight. I didn’t feel bothered and my lips didnt chap. In addition to that the applicator is precise and i like the fact that it comes with a mirror for whenever you need a quick touchup. The color payoff is great although i had to dip a couple of times to complete the look but the color seemed opaque enough not to have to use a second coat.

    I was honestly really disappointed in this product. I like the packaging and the size makes it easy to take around with you for touch ups. What I didn’t like was the color and the formula. The formula was very drying and it didn’t last long at all. The color didn’t flatter my skin tone at all, it was way too bright. Overall I like benefits products, but this one was a miss for me.

    I found the packaging of this product really cute. It was a really nice shade of red and wasn’t too harsh or orange. I could easily decide how bold I wanted to go depending on how many times I layered it. I think the applicator was precise and easy to use . The only downside to this product is that I thought it smudged very easily even when left to dry (came off on hand and clothes). It’s also not very moisturizing.

The brush that comes with it makes it very easy to apply the product on the lips accurately. I loved the color for my skin tone, it’s fresh and it really lasted all day. The texture is very light, but sometimes a little bit too dry.”

    I really loved the texture it’s very smooth and creamy and leaves your lips hydrated. The color is beautiful and I just loved the brush that comes with it because you don’t need a lipliner to contour your lips the brush will do it. But it’s not longlasting so you better keep it in your bag. Recommended.

    “This product is honestly a gift from God, its amazing the packaging is unique and elegant. And that bold red color is Very pretty i love it. But i think applying the color by finger tips is easier and faster than the brush the comes with it. I’ve tried to use it as an eyeliner too with the eyeliner brush and let me tell you that IT IS A LOOK. I think its worth the price”
