While I see that the reviews for this product are overwhelmingly positive, I can not say that I like this lipstick. It's an average pink. It's not anything great in my opinion. It's a pink with a little shimmer in it. It does not compliment my NC15 skintone.
It looks like I didn't quite get over the 60's. This lipstick is very "slick", doesn't last well at all. While I am not a person who tans or trys to maintain a bronzed look, the effect of this lipstick on me is that of an overly tanned women wearing a very frosty apricot or pink lipstick. Which is pretty impressive for a pale faced woman.
I just am not happy with the purchase, wouldn't buy it again. But if you're looking for an "average" everyday boring lipstick, go ahead and buy it.

I love this colour when it's not too warm out. Hot weather makes my lips go bright, bright red/pink and they completely drown out a colour like this one.
I do love the way that it has light reflecting particles but you couldn't call it shimmery. I also love how it's a cool toned pink but it's flattery even paired with a nude face - you don't have to dress up to put it on.
However, I'm giving it a 3 because it doesn't last and it clings to any dryness on the lips. It's also such a soft texture that it slip-slides about on the lips and you end up with very uneven colouring. Especially if you're someone who will smoodge their lips together alot when you can feel product on them like I am.
It also has a weird relationship with its tube. I've nearly used mine up completely and the point of the lipstick now emerges somewhere over to the side of the tube - instead of inline with the slant designed in the tube. Alot of lipstick residue has also been left on the inside of the tube and has to be taken off with a brush. It's not ruined or anything - but it does rather impact on the feel you get when using the lipstick. I wouldn't pull this out in public because it just looks unco, not glamouress.
However, will repurchase because it's such a gorgeous winter lipstick colour and it's moisturising. It's more like a non-sticky gloss than a lipstick actually. The fact that I've nearly used it up says a lot. I am a lipstick junky - always on the hunt for a new - and it's really rare that I push a lippie down to even half it's tube.

THis is a great lipstick with a really nice glossy pink colour which is quite shimmery and shiny.This makes my lips look amazing and i use it loads when i've done up my eyes, the only problem with it is that though it is really nice and creamy to apply it melts soo easily. Mine is pretty mushed up because i had it in my bag on a warm summer day. If it does get mushed do what i did, the top was the bit that was mainly mushed so cut off the end and put it in a pallette and use the rest as normal.

This shade is a milky pink-peachy neutral. Would work on a wide range of skin tones. Looks perfect with a smoky eye. Very creamy/soft texture - don't leave it in a hot car or carry it in your pocket! It smushes very easily. No scent. Moist feel, doesn't dry out my lips. The only bummer is it doesn't last so I have to reapply constantly. I do love the color though and would repurchase.

I'm Asian--fair olive skin with cool undertones. This sheer lipstick was near exact to my lip color if I use one or two layers. The more layers of lipstick I put on, the paler my lips are so this lipstick is very build-able. It has just enough gloss and sheerness to wear like a lip gloss daily. Downturn on this product is that it is expensive for a sheer lipstick, and does not last long enough. Would purchase again if I can't find a better lipstick

When I first saw this color I fell in love. It's a soft pink--a little light but very wearable, maybe a hair on the cool side--with semi-sheer coverage. The finish is slick and a little shiny, with a hint of warm toned micro-shimmer. It's almost natural looking, and very pretty. A bit similar looking to Chanel Ming RA, IMO. Unfortunately, it needs a rather thin application to wear perfectly evenly, wear time is generally quite low, and you quickly find yourself running out of product. The color is great, very flattering and a nice alternative to beigey nudes, but I found the formula a bit disappointing.

Nice bright pinky lipstick, texture is so smooth, glides on easily but doesn't last long on my lips.

Jing-a-ling is a pretty sparkly light-to-medium pink, glossy, and sheer. It's something I'd really only wear during daylight hours, as I like something a little more dramatic for evenings out, but it does give a lovely pop of glossy color to a muted day look. A bit expensive for such a sheer lipstick, which is why I wouldn't repurchase, but still very pretty.

I'm surprised I hadn't reviewed this lipstick yet since it is the one lip color I keep coming back to. Yes. I'm not a big lipstick collector. I wear mostly old-school Chapstick--my lipstick collection consists of YSL nude-y pinky color which is georgeous but comes off in seconds, Ruby Woo by MAC, which I absolutely love but wear on special occasions, and, as of late, NYC Color Cafe color b/c it is nice and neutral. However, when I wear lipstick I keep returning to Benefit's Jing-A-Ling. This color is fabulous if you have naturally heavy-pigmented lips because it lightens up your mouth with just a teensy-weensy hint of glimmer--NOT frosted at all--just a tad glimmery. The glide-ability of this lipstick is excellent. It is creamy and glides on nicely. I have given this lipstick a 5 because I love the color--it is so hard to find that perfect color and this does not dissappoint. However, as with most lipsticks, the longevity isn't excellent. It is a pricey lipstick, but not the most expensive I've purchased. The packaging is nice too. Overall I will purchase this again--I've gone through two tubes already. However, I'm on a kind-of boycott against Benefit because they have discontinued "She-Laq" and it was the best ever product for keeping eye makeup from smearing. I will purchase when my anger subsides--actually I had better purchase soon because Benefit will probably discontinue THIS great lipstick! Oh well...

Better for the summer, and really beautiful with dramatic smokey eyes...

This was my first Benefit lipstick and I love it. It's a very beautiful pink with a nice sheen/shimmer to it. It glides on like a lipgloss and just feels so soothing on the lips. However, because of it's sheer and glossy nature, it's not very long-lasting. This is a beautiful color for when I want some color on my lips, but not a huge amount and want to look more natural. The packaging is wonderful and elegant feeling. Would totally repurchase.

i like this color if i dont want something super noticeable on my lips, its shimmery pink and you can build it up and i love the packaging just like anything from beneFit

ah....a Benefit product I can praise.
this is a gorgeous pink -- sheer with some golden glints and has proven to be a lovely product as a lippie or over another lippie. I have also been using it over gel lip liner and it is spectacular in that it is not heavy or lipsticky looking.
lovely on anyone I have used it on.

Beautiful color. I love how smooth and great it feels on the lips. Anyone that wants a nice pink lipstick should really look into this. =)

This is a beautiful very soft pink with the most minimal amount of gold shimmer. It goes on super smooth and silky and has a very nice shine. It doesn't feel extremely moisturizing but it's not drying either. The color is pigmented enough and can be built up to a more full coverage look on the lips. It doesn't last that long but honestly I don't care. This is great for all those soft on the lips bold on the eyes people like me !
I want to try more of the colors, also the packaging is very nice and sleek and very secure as it closes very tightly and it will never come open in your purse.

This is a very pretty pink, almost a nudey pink - at least I can wear it that way on its own. It is very sheer, very smooth and very slick - feels somewhere in between a lipstick, lipgloss and lipbalm. Worn over lips which have been lined and filled, applied, blotted and applied again you can get a reasonable lipstick look, if you wear it alone then really it's a step up from a tinted lip balm.
It is soft and moisturising enough to use throughout the day without needing an additional balm and I do often drop it in my purse to put on through the day - but not as often as the clinique buttershine lippies.
Nice, but not my favourite, I have a personal dislike of the stick shape this and other similar products come in - however I would repurchase as they have some fairly unique colours.

I'm in love with this lipstick, it took a lot for me to spend 21 euro on a lipstick as i normally only wear gloss and never bother with lipstick. but after seeing this on youtube in a tutorial i fell in love with the colour and finish so off i went and bought it.. and i love it and i dont feel guilty for spending that amount of money on it :)

I looove this lipstick! I just bought it yesterday but i'm seriously in love. It's moisturizing and gives me MLBB lips! My lips are quite pigmented so a lot of pink lipsticks don't show up on me, but this one does. It gives a beautiful pink pearly sheen. If only the price was cheaper...
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Oh I loved this lipstick! I have purchased this a handful of times, and love the sexy colour. You most definitely do not need a gloss with this, as it gives a lovely sexy sheen. It has probably been my favourite pink lipstick I have come across, and think it is worth every penny. I even scrape the dregs from the bottom when its all flattened out and get heaps more applications! It gives you the most kissable looking lips. I have been using MAC the past few months as I fancied a change, but I think this will always have the favourite lip colour in my heart. Glides on like a dream! YUMMY!!

I agree with all the other comments below, except that I do not feel anything grainy in this lipstick. It has such a glossy finish and actually somehow make my lips look fuller. The color is appropriately described on Benefit's website as a tutu pink. On me personally, I would describe it as a pink nude color. Honestly, this is probably the best lipstick I have ever owned and I want more colors! I think I will get Sugar Cookie next.
