Day 1 of the 30 lipsticks in 30 days Project opens with Benefit Cosmetics Silky Finish lipstick in Frenched.

Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick – Frenched

Frenched is a scary bright RED lipstick in the tube. Just look at it. Its bright without discernable warm or cool tones although I’d say it tends towards the warm.

However, I knew right off that Frenched was a red made just for me. Its no secret I love red lippies and Frenched fills that niche, being at one and the same time bright and creamy.

Being a silky finish lipstick, the texture is smooth and silky but it goes on very creamy and pigmented. I mean pigmented… seriously.

It certainly is a colour for the night and promises to glam up any night outfit. Bit too bright for the day, even for me! 😉

Stay tuned for Day 2 to see NYX Black Label lipstick in Opium.

Stay beautiful,

Paris B

I love Benefit lipsticks too!! I just wish that they’re not so expensive!

Hiya Jenn

Mmmm… 😉 The Silky Finish lippies are really nice but I echo your sentiments about price!


Nikki June 1, 2009 at 1:14 pm

wow..your lips…. I am hypnotized!!!! so pretty!


ParisB June 1, 2009 at 5:15 pm

Hi Nikki

Thanks! 😀 Now you’re hypnotized hand over all your lippies! teehee


Connie June 1, 2009 at 2:06 pm

it looks soo creamy…. and luscious! looks great on you! I’ve never tried benefit’s lipsticks before :p


ParisB June 1, 2009 at 5:16 pm

Hey Connie

I only own a couple… bought during their sale – go me! 😉 Thanks!


yahui June 1, 2009 at 2:14 pm

oooh la la, Paris. 😉 might i suggest plumping it up a notch with some gloss, just in the middle of the lips? would be so juicy to bite then. 😛



ParisB June 1, 2009 at 5:17 pm

Hiya yahui

In real life, it needs no plumping! Seriously… :) Thanks for the suggestion though. A couple of other lippies might need that treatment.


Reese June 1, 2009 at 2:45 pm

being a nude/natural colour fan, i am secrectly hoping i could wear red well, yours looked really juicy…


ParisB June 1, 2009 at 5:18 pm

Hi Reese

Its a big jump from nude/neutral to red so try a sheer red before going in the deep end. A couple of sheerer reds are coming up soon. Thanks! Any girl can wear red lipstick!

Way to start off Day 1 with a bang, PB! Hehehe… :)


ParisB June 2, 2009 at 12:14 pm

Hey rinnah

Yep! 😀 Had to start with a fave RED!


gio June 1, 2009 at 7:36 pm

wow, it looks so creamy and pretty! Looks great on you!


ParisB June 2, 2009 at 12:14 pm

Hi Gio

Thank you! :)

that lipstick is tooooo red for me. have you really worn it out on a date or an outing? 😛

looks rather new to me. i bought the chanel LE red gloss jupiter and regret it. gave it away to MIL as it’s just too red for me and i can’t wear red.


Connie June 2, 2009 at 11:16 am

With a red like that, the date’s sure to be one wild night! *winks*

I prefer taking product pictures before actually using them so they won’t look all “used” when I post them up :-/ Perhaps that’s why PB’s lipstick looks new.


Karen June 4, 2009 at 6:32 am

I love the Benefit lipsticks. I don’t have a red one so I’ll have to check this shade out. I have a few colors from spring/summer 2009 that I really like, and I did a post featuring swatches and pics of the colors a while back. Thrillin’ Brazilian is my favorite!


ParisB June 4, 2009 at 10:01 am

Hiya Karen

Oh I remember your post! I’ll probably wait for them to come here, test them then order online teehee… Thanks for being so up to date! Its a great help for me :)


christina January 24, 2010 at 11:00 pm

hi there!
I googled reviews/swatches for Frenched and came to your blog. It will be my first Benefit lipstick, and was the colour that got me the most from their site. I’m a sucker for reds and corals! is there any other you really liked? I liked the swatch of misbehavin and breathless (more plum/mauve colours).
Any experience with them?
thanks :)


ParisB January 24, 2010 at 11:40 pm

Hi Christina – I love Frenched! I haven’t tried Misbehavin’ or Breathless but I might have Swoonderful somewhere. Its not bad too but not a bright shade. Good for everyday I’d say. Thanks for coming by!
