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 product

$30 is a bit cost prohibitive, but this is by far my favourite tint. It smells fantastic and the color looks great on just about everyone! I've been using this for years.

Smells great, natural look

Very natural looking on both cheeks and lips. It didn't last as long on my lips, even without eating or drinking anything, it was gone within a couple hours. The color and smell are really nice though.

So cool!
Sampled

I never knew such a product existed! I have rather dry lips so will have to try again after some exfoliation, but it has a nice tint. I also love that you can add layers to control tint. Very cool product.

Great natural color on lips
Sampled

Even though it looks really dark in the bottle, this product leaves a nice natural pink tint on the lips. It works best if lips are exfoliated and not too dry. Otherwise, it runs to inside of lip and looks like you've been eating a popsicle. It's a really thin liquid. I find it worked best if I pressed lips together after applying so that it absorbed quickly. It did have a funny bitter taste at first, but that went away after a bit. I liked it with a clear gloss over it best.

It's more difficult to apply to cheeks, I thought, but maybe I was applying it wrong. I think I used too much the first time. It also seems to work better when blended with a brush. Otherwise, it will absorb into your fingers and turn them red. I will keep practicing on the cheeks. I do like that it lasts a long time on cheeks and lips. I will probably purchase this product when I run out of my sample.

great color

I don't normally like "stains" but this one went on nice and smooth. I was very impressed with the color. The sample was a little small and therefore a little difficult to apply.

Good everyday product
Sampled

I like the stain on my lips with a little vaseline, looks natural and healthy. Reminds me of summer after eating a cherry popsicle. This is a great product for a casual Satruday, but not polished enough for the office.

Changed my mind
Sampled

I really have never cared for this brand. I knew of this product, but was prepared not to like it. I was pleasantly surprised. I own other lip stains, but have always found the color to be a little strange. This had a nice believable color. I wouldn't mind sampling the other color they have as well, but will probably purchase this in the future.

great color
Sampled

I really love this benetint for my lips. It gives it a great subtle color that stays. I like to use it over my chapstick. I have not tried it on my cheeks yet, but only because I like the blush I already have.

Great cheek stain!
Sampled

This is one of those products I always wanted to buy but never quite justified spending the money on it, so it's exciting to get a sample of it in Birchbox. The color gives a great flush to cheeks, with staying power. I use Benefit's cha cha tint and posie tint, and I love how they look on my cheeks, too (and that a little bit goes a long way!). I can't speak to Benetint as a lip stain.

Classic Stain
Sampled

Good for the summer, but I'm not a huge fan of cheek/lip stains. This is the classic.
