For an extra luminous look, apply Posietint to your cheeks, then layer Benefit’s Girl Meets Pearl onto cheekbones.

Benefit Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

Even the most beloved classics can benefit (get it?) from the occasional twist. This poppy pink lip and cheek stain is an updated version of Benefit’s bestselling Benetint. From our morning coffee to our evening wind down, this long-lasting formula stays put.

How it Works

Once it’s on, it’s really on. This stain leaves our cheeks flushed and our lips petal pink for hours. The creamy gel looks opaque but goes on sheer.

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. Add more if you’re trying to make a bold statement.

It's AMAZING

I love, love, LOVE this product! I have a warm medium skin tone (sun kissed) and this looks adorable as a lip/cheek color on me. The color looks like the pomegranate yogurt from yogurt mountain. It's great for a natural look and makes a great gift for more natural make up users who don't venture out on their own into the makeup world (my mom).

I wanted to like this

I really wanted to like this cheek stain. The color on the packaging/bottle looks great and I thought it would give me a natural/flush look. It did, but since I tend to get redness around my nose area to begin with, the redness of this stain didn't really mesh too well. Still a gorgeous color, I feel like this may work really well on someone who has fair skin and no redness issues.

Can't see it?
Purchased

If I put this on over my makeup, it smudges it off. If I put it on under my makeup, I can't see it. Any suggestions?

Pretty good!

This is a pretty good product! My only complaint about it is when you apply it you have to blend it ASAP or it will leave marks from where you applied it. Since this is a stain it is also very long wearing. I really like the color of posietint because it looks natural, unlike some of the other tints. When you put this product on your cheeks it is a nice subtle pink color but when you put it on your lips it is a beautiful hot pink!

This is so pretty on!

This does dry a little fast so rub it in quickly, but it leaves such a pretty glow of color!

Just ok

I had never used the Benefit lip products prior to purchasing these product but I read rave reviews on sevearl differnt online forums. I was not overly impressed with this product. The application of the product is similar to a fingernail polish brush, which for me was inconvient and awkward. The color was great and the formula was long lasting. I will probably not buy this product again after this one runs out due to the applicator but I do like the color and finish.

Love this stuff!

I am a lip stain lover from the day I discovered it's existence. I have tried just about every brand out there at every price point. I know people complain about this product being drying to the lips, but I always use it as a base color and then wear lipstick over the top. As the days goes on and my lipstick wears off I always have that nice under layer of color that last all day.
This product is very hard to apply to the cheeks, but I have a little trick that I have been using for years. I mix a little of the stain with my favorite face moisturizer and then apply the mixture to my cheeks. It makes it go on smoothly and just has a hint of color. I make up a little container of it so it is ready to go for many applications.
The one real downfall is the applicator, I am always afraid of spilling the bottle, and a sponge applicator would be easier to apply the product.
