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.

DISAPPOINTING
Purchased

I should have known better. I bought this years ago and forgot how many application I needed to have any color show at all. The only one of this kind of product from Benefit is Cha Cha Tint. That actually does show. No, I won't ever buy again.

Wasn't worth the hype
Purchased

I'm not crazy about this AT ALL. I love light make up looks, but this looks like I am wearing NOTHING. Awful taste. I use it if I have nothing else.

Not enough pigment
Sampled

I know many people rave about this product but I didn't find it to be very effective. The consistency was too thin to do a proper job of coloring my lips and I don't like using liquid blushes as it makes my skin look like it has a rash rather than a cute flushed "straight from the ski slopes" blush. But if you want just a hint of color, Benetint might be just want you're looking for.

no thanks

I feel like this product took a lot of it to achieve any coloring on my cheeks. It last throughout the day, but took a lot of effort to get to that point.

Too Subtle

I know most people are crazy about this product, but I find it to barely show up on my skin (and I'm pretty fair), plus it only lasts for about 5 minutes. I've just found other stains I like a lot more!

Not a big fan

I have this and I have tried it twice and I didn't like it. Gave it to my daughter and she loved it.

So-so product

Very ho-hum in my humble opinion. I applied this to both my lips and cheeks. I had to keep applying more product to my cheeks to even notice anything. I ended up ditching that effort and just using my regular blush. As a lipstain, it's just okay. It provides a very light and pleasing color base, but definitely is not a stain--it disappeared within minutes. Definitely not impressed with this product.

Drying for my lips

I am a super fair girl and while this shade works on my lips as long as I don't go crazy... it sucks moisture right out of my lips. I am way too apprehensive to try it on my cheeks.

no color.

I don't know what tint they are referring to because there is no color. There was a little gloss. But no color or tint to speak of.

Meh

I really wanted to like this, but the color just isn't for me. I'm not a red red person. My lips felt really dry too after applying.
