Apply Benetint to your cheeks and then blend Benefit’s High Beam onto your cheekbones for a luminous glow.

Benefit Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

In 1977, Jane and Jean Ford, the twin sisters behind Benefit, met a local dancer who requested a long-lasting red pigment that wouldn’t budge during her shows. They listened, and this beloved rose lip and cheek stain was born. Year after year, it’s a bestseller for good reason: the translucent color leaves us with a natural flush so we look pretty, not made-up.

How it Works

This lightweight stain goes on sheer for buildable rosy coverage. The long-lasting formula is made with carmine rose petals and lasts for hours. Not surprisingly, it’s a staple with celebrities, makeup artists, and models (not to mention Birchbox staffers).

How to Use

Smile and dab three small strokes on the apples of your cheeks. Blend immediately, as the formula does dry quickly. Next, dot on your lips and blend with clean fingertips. Apply another layer if you want a deeper crimson hue.

love it
Purchased

After years of having to reapply my blush several times a day, I was happy to discover benetint. This product stays put until I wash it off at night. It doesn't bother my sensitive skin, and is simple to apply. Plus the large bottle lasts a long time.

Great cheek stain -- not as long lasting as I'd like
SampledPurchased

I love the natural look this cheek stain which is the best blush I've found so far. I don't like how it stains your fingers pink, and I wish it lasted longer, but it does give a natural flush, and if you're looking for a natural look, this is it.

My favorite cosmetic!
Sampled

My collection isn't complete without Benetint. It works for everything! It gives me a nice flushed look without looking like I'm wearing makeup - I use it on my cheeks and lips. I keep a big bottle in my bathroom and a pocketpal in my bag. It's not sticky (on my skin anyway) and the faint taste is not unpleasant. Definitely recommend!

Long lasting color

Love this color tint from Benefit. I received this in a kit a couple of years ago, and the color still holds true. Very easy to use and very natural looking! Must have!

i've found "The One"
Purchased

I am not a lipstick wearer, but I love lip stains. I have bought just about every lip stain on the market and this one takes the cake. The color is a beautiful "your lips but better" shade, and it is long-lasting without being drying. I don't think I'll be wearing anything but this for a long time.

Favorite Makeup Staple

I loved the versatility of this product! Using it as a lip stain and covering with a clear gloss worked great. I also loved using it as a cheek color. It provided the glow I like in a blush without the grainy look I sometimes get with powder blushes.

Love the color hate the taste!
Sampled

This is an amazing stain, as it works for both cheeks and lips! The color is rich and long lasting, the only reason it isn't 5 stars is the taste. It has a very strong rose taste, that when my husband kisses me he claims taste like potpourri. I myself hate the taste when first applied but get used to it. That aside I love this and it is always in my purse for needing color emergencies, along with benefits watts up? Fresh tinted lip balm in rose, and this. The perfect emergency kit.

It's a Must Have

If I had to pick just one product to use for the rest of my life this would be it. It's a very natural look. I use it for my cheeks and lips when I don't have the time or energy to put on a full face of makeup. It takes less than a minute and it makes a significant difference. I only wish it would last longer on my lips. I don't mind reapplying every so often though.

Great product

I really like the versatility of this product. I use it on my lips and cheeks for quick color. It takes so little to have an impact that the "cost per wearing" should be low.
