I've been trying to fight it, but whenever I think about Benefit Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Nookie Nookie($18) my mind instantly jumps to Nineties metal band Limp Bizkit!  "I did it all for the nookie," anyone? Come to think of it, something about this lovely gloss DOES have a 90s vibe, just one of a different sort.

Benefit Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Nookie Nookie is a pale opalescent shimmer that would look right at home on the lips of a Nineties New Age goddess. The light pink shade includes hints of mocha and peach and is spiked with large gold glitter flecks throughout. Despite the warm gold and peach components, I'd say the color pulls cool-toned overall thanks to an abundance of beautiful purple and pink shimmer.

Benefit Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Nookie Nookie includes a brush applicator that's a tad small for me. It takes awhile to apply the gloss because of the small brush, but the petite applicator does allow for quite a bit of precision. It's a trade-off.

Benefit Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Nookie Nookie smells like fruity candy but has no discernible flavor. The color is a too pale for me to wear by itself, but it makes a great layering gloss that adds opalescent flair over light-to-medium pink or rosy lipsticks.

Benefit Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Nookie Nookie is a great gloss for adding shine, shimmer and dimension to your look. I think this gloss would look particularly rockin' on people with cool or neutral undertones, but the hints of peach and gold mean that us warm-toned ladies can pull off Benefit Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Nookie Nookie as well.

What's your favorite Benefit gloss?
