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.

Not my favorite
Sampled

I put some on my lips and one cheek. I couldn't notice the difference between cheeks really. It was very subtle. If you put enough on your lips, eventually it will look naturally more pink/red.

Perhaps I need to wear a layer of foundation before using this, but the blush just sank right into my skin and didn't do much. It actually left it kind of irritated, and I don't have sensitive skin. Maybe it works better on the lips, but definitely sample this before buying.

Perhaps I need a good layer of foundation on, but I didn't see much of a difference when I tried this as a blush. It just sank into my skin and made it irritated. The liquid concept is interesting though, and maybe it works better on the lips, so definitely sample before buying.

Move on

I feel like everyone and their mom already has 2-3 samples of this product so I was not that excited to see it arrive in my birchbox. I do not even use my samples of the benetint that much. I like regular powder blush much better.

Stays
Sampled

The product really stays and is not as bright on the skin as it is in the bottle.

Feels odd
Sampled

Too runny - feels odd on my skin. Maybe my coloring is just different or I applied it wrong, but every time I tried this product it looked bad on me.

I have oily skin so I do not care for these type of products to stain my cheeks also I do not care for the color for my lips as well this is just a personal preference though

Not a great lip tint
Sampled

This product may be better for cheeks but as a lip tint not so much ... I needed to apply it about 4 times before seeing any kind of color and there was more on my finger than my lips. Maybe I didn't let it dry (#impatient) but the taste was horrible.

Didn't like it
Sampled

This was too runny to put on my cheeks once I have my foundation on. It's a pretty color- but I don't like the watery formula. Also didn't like how it felt on my lips.
