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.

Burnt lips

The product burnt my lips and was painful to use. I may be allergic.

Disappointing on all counts
Sampled

I love the idea of this product and was so excited to try it. However, it fails all around. The scent: Roses, but not the "this smells so good I want to eat it" natural rose scent that I adore - this is the "holy cow that old lady smells like roses" perfumey scent. Bleh. Tastes horrible, like drinking the aforementioned perfume. Finally, the tone of red was totally wrong for my skintone, looking unnatural on both cheeks and lips. Bummer!

I was not really happy with this product. I actually received a similar product in a previous birch box shipment that i just like better.

Not for Me

Lip stain seemed great at first but did not last more than 15 min with color on the lips.

Not for me

All of the reviews for this product have been pretty positive, so I was hopeful. I had received the same type of product in a sample before (Stainiac) and I didn't like that one either. The texture and color just wasn't for me.

Not a fan

Sadly, this just doesn't work for me. I have naturally dark pink lips, so the color is very subtle. It doesn't last long on my lips for a stain and it is drying, plus I really dislike the rose scent and the chemically taste. I wouldn't wear this sheer of a tint unless it was also moisturizing. It's too messy to apply to carry in my bag, and I can't use it on my cheeks because the perfume irritates my sensitive skin.

Great Scent
Sampled

I wasn't very impressed with the pigmentation. There are so many lip and cheek products out right now that this one seemed very lackluster. I have to use a lot of the product to get any color at all on my skin, and I am very fair skinned.

Nice idea but not enough tint
Sampled

I am allergic to Benefit lip gloss and tried a small amount to test. While I'm not allergic, the tint was too light for my lips to wear alone. I've see mixed reviews so it must depend on the user.

Hated this one!

This went on my lips oddly. The color wouldn't distribute evenly. The sample wasn't a good color for me, but I don't think I'd try this in another tint.

Nice sample but not for me
Sampled

I don't use blush or cheek stains and this was not the right color for my lips. I wound up giving this to a coworker who uses the product. The size was good for travel. It just wasn't something I would ever use.
