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.

I love this for my cheeks! But, I did not like it as a lip stain. The rose scent reminded me of the rose scented perfumes and lotions that were popular among older ladies when I was a kid. Anyway, I couldn't really smell it when I put it on my cheeks. But the scent was strong on my lips, and didn't really add much color, no more than a fruity lip balm would.

BeneTint on lips
Sampled

I am a fan of powder blush for my cheeks, so of course I tried the benetint on my lips as a lip stain. The color is wonderful, and the scent is light rose-scented, which I liked a lot. However, this tastes terrible if you happen to lick your lips when it is either wet or already dried. I did find it to be much less sticky than other gel style lip tints, so I would be more likely to try it on my cheeks. It lasted significantly longer than other lip stains I have tried, however the application is alittle messy. My first time, I simply brushed it onto my lips and layered several coats to develop a dark stain that I desired. The formula is super watery, so it bled into the creases of my lips and even out onto the skin around my lips. I definitely suggest a red or clear lip liner to block this bleeding color if you plan to apply with the brush. The next time, I dotted it onto my lips and blended with my finger. That produced a softer effect and less bleeding, however, then my finger was red for a while. I truly prefer the "marker" pointed tip pen style applicators for lip stain. Obviously this product doubles as a cheek stain, where a pen wouldn't be the best application method, so I understand the brush for benetint. Overall, i enjoy the product. I hope they come out with an orange shade, I have been looking for one!!

Rose red tint

This tint is a beautiful rose red color on lips and a natural flush look on cheeks. Great product and it smells like roses what more can you ask for.

Love the lasting color!

I had wanted to try this for a while so was very pleased when it arrived in my birchbox! I love the lasting glow on my cheeks, although I haven't really been wowed when using it on my lips. The only downside for me is that it leaves my fingers red after blending.

Love!

I love Benefit products, especially the Benetint, have been using it for years. It is a great long-lasting blush. I do not use it on my lips though as it tends to dry them out.

Great lip tint

It's a subtle enough color to wear during the day and of course works for a night out on the town. I like adding a shimmer lip gloss over it. Just wish it lasted a little longer.

Great cheek stain

If you're looking for a lightweight blush, this is your product! I went on a hike while wearing this and it lasted the whole time; it lasted the whole day! I was not impressed with this product as a lip stain, but if you will use it on a regular basis as just a cheek stain, this is the product for you.

love benefit stains!
Sampled

All benefit stains provide a nice, dewey, natural glow... I am an avid user of posey tint as a blush. Posey tint + tinted moisturizer are pretty much the only products i dont leave the house without. Benetint is a bit dark for my skin tone as a blush, but I can use it as a lip stain. Also, while you need a stain to dry quickly or you will have a big mess and have to wait for your face to dry ( super annoying), benetint dries so quickly that it can be streaky if you are a new user to the product. I find that posey and chacha tint are way less streaky.

works really well

I have had other tints that have been placed in my box and this was the first one that really left a noticeable tint to my lips! I would absolutely recommend it, but it's just not a product I use.
