Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain

In 1977, Jane and Jean Ford, the twin sisters behind Benefit, met a 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 best-seller for good reason: the translucent color leaves us with a natural flush so we look pretty, not made-up.

Great stain!

This is a diverse product, can be used on lips and cheeks. I really like it on my lips. It stays on for about 4-6 hours and only needs a little gloss or balm inbeteeen applications. Does not cake, looks really natural.

I can NOT live without it!

This product is a staple in my make-up bag. It's light weight and doesn't cause breakouts. Gives me just the right amount of color without making me look like I've loaded up my face with too much make-up. Works great under lip gloss on the lips too! Plus: the bottle lasts quite a long time! Well worth every penny.

Awesome product but awful taste

This is a gorgeous product, long lasting, beautiful color. But it tastes just awful so I hardly ever use it.

Lasts forever
SampledPurchased

I use this on my lips -- not bold enough to try on my cheeks. It creates a nice, subtle stain and lasts a long while. I layer with lipgloss -- either tinted or clear.

Does not blend well
Purchased

Absorbs too quickly. Sticky. Thin liquid, very bright, cannot be touched up over any kind of tint, concealer, foundation or powder. Does not stain, fix (absorb)if blended with most moisturizers and creams during or after use in attempts to blend.

My favorite lip color

I adore this lip stain! I have been using a small bottle for months, so it is definitely worth the money, but I would recommend it even if it were gone in three strokes of the brush. The color is fabulous, it is long-lasting and it stays for hours.

Best lip stain ever!!

Beautiful color that looks a little more than natural. Super easy to apply with little brush applicator and lasts FOREVER. Doesn't come off with food or drink or activities and generally has lasted me half the day (4-6 hours).

LOVE this -- it's now a DAILY Must have

I got this in the sample size. I've always struggled to find natural looking blushes and lipsticks that I don't hate (I'm very picky about things not looking or feeling greasy on my lips). My father is from India and my mother is a red-head and my skintone is fair but weirdly hard to match/coordinate with makeup. This is wonderfully natural looking while not looking 'too natural' if that makes any sense? And the staying power is AMAZING. I need to wear blush every day or I look wan, and this lasts all day.

Weird application, but I like it
Purchased

Not one review I read mentioned that this is a water-consistency liquid applied with a nail polish-type brush to your lips. it does settle into creases a little, so if you are over 45 or have smoker-lips, you'll probably hate it. The color is less intense than you think (unless you apply like 3 layers) but it is quite a lovely product once you master application. Once it dries it really does stay put, and it smells nice. Love that I can kiss my baby without leaving big lipstick smooches all over her!

Love the tint
Purchased

I love everything this brand has to offer. This is one of the best stains out there. It gives you the flush minus the heavy layering.
