Benefit Benetint

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.

I don't get the fuss

I honestly hated this product. Its watery, smells funny and left my fingers red and BARELY left any color on my lips at all. I can honestly say, it was awful....

Funny taste
Sampled

I found this product difficult to use on cheeks as it didn't blend well and I felt a little like a clown. When I tried it as a lip stain, it had a really funny taste to it, kinda like soap. I gave the sample to a friend.

pretty color, wears off
Sampled

In fairness, I haven't tried this on my cheeks, only my lips. I haven't had much luck with gel or liquid blush (I like to have more control). I do love lip stains so I was excited to try this one out. First of all, it smells like roses. Strongly. One layer adds a nice shade for natural looking lips, but since I have darker skin, I like two shades. Before I could add another shade, I needed the first layer to dry completely before adding a second layer. If I added more right away, it ran down my face. I could tolerate the waiting if it lasted longer on my lips. About an hour after applying it, it was gone.

Nice

Thanks birchbox for sending me a product from this brand. I absolutely love the brand. But I have no luck with their lip and cheek stain. I find it hard to blend. This product is not for me.

Difficult to deal with
Sampled

My skin tends to oily, and this disappears within a couple of hours, as it happens with any other product from Benefit. Also, it is difficult to spread once applied, looking like a silly splot on my face.

Super DE-hydrating
Sampled

I used this product and was pretty excited to have a tint under my gloss. Within a few hours my lips were extremely de-hydrated and for a few days following, I couldn't get them moist again. I would recommend not using this product.

Not a fan
Sampled

I don't like this because it's too liquidy and I can't get it to work as a blush or a lip tint.

Too sticky and tacky feeling. Did not last long and came off very quickly before eating or drinking anything at all
