Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain

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 have always stared at this product in store but was too scarred to ever buy it and try it for fear of it not matching, not blending, not the right color, not liking the feel, etc. That all changed. They are not kidding when they say work it in right away. It sets quickly. It's easily blendable and buildable so you can have a light or concentrated color. I love it as a lip color but I also need to use a lip moisturizer with it.

I love almost anything from Benefit and these cheek and lip stains especially!! Word to the wise, don't let it linger on you cheek for too long but it will stain that one spot. I have very fair skin so I had this problem (Have to rub it in asap). Other than that, I really really lve using it on my lips. Such a pretty color.

I've been hearing about the Benetint lip and cheek stain for years, and had always wanted to try it. I was so excited to get it in my box and to finally get the chance to use it! Definitely lives up to the hype.

Liked more for lips than cheeks.

Made my cheeks a little TOO pink for my taste (I prefer the Tarte stick blush) but loved it for my lips--still put gloss on over it though for some shine.

Love this!

I was hesitant to try the product at first, after looking at the deep red color, but found that it gave a nice tint to my lips. I used a gloss on top to give shine.

Love!

I was a little unsure about using this product because it's liquid, and for some reason I'm always a bit scared to use a liquid makeup product, but I LOVE this!! It only takes a little dab to get the perfect amount and I love how easy it is. The only downside, in my opinion, is that it does stain your finger for a while, but all in all, I will definitely continue using it!

It is a nice product. I like that it is a stain and stays on longer than lipstick. I will use this and not have to reapply too often. My husband liked it more than my regular lip tint. That is a plus!

This is a very cool product. I am excited to try it out. However, I prefer traditional blush and lip stain.

I think that Benetint is a perfect product for a fair skinned women wanting a natural looking flush. It is very sheer and feels weightless. Perfect for me this winter!
