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 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.2
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.2
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!2
I have this and I have tried it twice and I didn't like it. Gave it to my daughter and she loved it.2
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.2
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.2
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.2
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.2
I think this product is OK for a cheek stain. However, I was really more interested in it for my lips and it really isn't ideal for a lip stain. It is very thin and the smell is so strong that I almost felt I shouldn't be putting it near my mouth!2
I am a huge Benefit junkie but this product just missed the mark for me. I actually had already purchased the full-size so I knew I was not going to like this sample. I've tried using my fingers, a brush, a sponge, and just didn't feel like it smoothed into my cheeks. I looked like I had just smeared lipstick on my face or something. That being said, I know a lot of people who like it....I would prefer a cream blush I think. BUT I will say the color is great--kind of a rose/poppy color.2
