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 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....
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a wonderful product but it is not for me prefer powder or cream application if products for cheeks and lips
this tint was too hard to blend on my aging skin but I love the brand & gave it to my daughter.
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.
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
