Benefit Dallas Ultra Plush Lip Gloss: Review + Swatches!

I have another one of the recently released Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Glosses to share with you today, this time in the shade Dallas.  Modeled after the popular Dallas Boxed Powder, this gloss is a rosy brown creme.

These glosses come in squeeze tube packaging, which I'm usually not a huge fan of because the plastic applicator part can get a little messy.  However, because the plastic applicator can be washed and cleaned, this sort of packaging can be more hygienic than standard wand/tube packaging.

Above and below are comparisons of the Dallas gloss to the Dallas powder.  While they aren't exact matches to each other, they do fall under the same brown-like shade.

On my lips, Dallas applies like a sheer brown.  I really like the consistency and appearance of this one, it is very similar to Coralista.  So far I've been really happy with the formulation of these new Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Glosses.  I find that they are smooth, moisturizing, and not sticky at all.  However, because Dallas is quite brown, I won't find myself wearing this outside of the fall and winter seasons.

If you have a medium to dark complexion, I think this gloss would be a gorgeous neutral color on your lips!  It works for lighter complexions as well, but I think this is one of those colors that would shine most on medium to dark skin tones.  These glosses retail for $16 and can be purchased wherever Benefit cosmetics are sold!

Do you like wearing brown shades on your lips?  I have to be in the right mood for it, which is usually in the fall and winter only.

xx, Allison
