Move over Kylie Cosmetics. There’s a new lip kit in town, and it’s promising big, sexy lips in just one stroke.

Available in stores and online at Ulta ($29), Benefit Cosmetics’ They’re Real! Big Sexy Lip Kit is simplifying the process of creating a full, round lip by combining lipstick and liner in one little tube.

With the help of a custom teardrop tip, the lipstick is designed to grab and define your lip line, while also filling in the lips for maximum volume and dimension.

First impression

Housed in a sleek, compact tin, Benefit’s They’re Real! Big Sexy Lip Kit includes four all-in-one lipsticks in the shades Revved-up Red, Lusty Rose, Flame Game and Pink Thrills.

Smaller than a standard lipstick, the sleek tubes are the perfect size for travel and cut down on space by packing both lipstick and liner into one product. Each lipstick is highly pigmented and promises no less than eight hours of wear.

The lipstick formula is creamy and goes on smoothly without feathering or bleeding. The custom teardrop tip makes the application process a lot easier than when using liner and lipstick separately.

Positioning the tip along the lip line, you swipe the lipstick across the lip (pivoting as you trace your lip line) until you’ve filled in the entire lip surface.

Fab or flub?

Fab! Benefit Cosmetics strikes magic again — this time in the form of the They’re Real! Big Sexy Lip Kit.

The easy-to-use product eliminates the headache of finding the perfect liner to match your lipstick by giving you everything you need for the perfect bold lip in one tube.

The lipstick’s creamy formula is lightweight and applies beautifully for all-day wear. As the product glides across the lips, the liner and the lipstick blend together seamlessly, without any harsh lines or bleeding.

The real magic behind this product, however, is that custom tip. The revolutionary teardrop design makes lining the outer lip with precision a breeze, and it does a wonderful job of helping to maximize the volume and dimension of your lips.

Overall, I’d say the price alone is worth picking up this kit. For the price of just one Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit, you receive four lipsticks with liner, and you don’t have to deal with applying each product individually.

For those interested in checking out more They’re Real! products from Benefit Cosmetics, I highly suggest trying out the cult-favorite They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara.

Similar to its lipstick counterpart, the product offers fuller, fatter eyelashes with just one swipe.
