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.
This is a great tint, however, it is super lightweight. It looks good on my cheeks but not so much on my lips. I will happily use this sample, but not sure I will be purchasing it. Not a bad product, just not really my thing. I prefer powder blush.4
I've gotten this and another lip stain (Stainiac) as samples, and while I love the idea of lip stains, I prefer Stainiac. Benefit's version goes on well and blends better (I'd imagine it is the better cheek stain, but I don't use it in that way), but it seems to take a little extra time to dry. This wouldn't be such a big deal, except that there is a nasty taste if you accidentally get it in your mouth - and with a slow drying time this can happen very easily. Stainiac is nearly tasteless. I will say for Benefit's benefit that this version does require less to get the desired effect, but that taste. ugh. disgusting. I'd rather get soap in my mouth.4
I love this color. It looks like my lips but better.4
Love the color of this tint. It's especially great on cheeks and looks like a very natural flush. Only downside is that it tastes terribly bitter, so careful not to get any of it in your mouth.4
I tried this as a lip tint and as a blush and I although I prefer it as a lip tint the scent was just too floral for me to wear that close to my nose. It is ver subtle as a blush even after a few applications and the color on the lips is very nice but still natural shade. I personally don't like floral scents and so I only docked it 1 star because otherwise it's a lovely product.4
Really liked this product more than powder blushes I've tried that seem to disappear after a few hours. Overall pretty weightless, but has staying power.4
This is a great cheek tint. I use it on my cheeks then put my blush over it. The tint makes the blush last all day. I have used it on my lips, but think it is better on the cheeks.4
The product isn't as strong as I expected. I like the color and application better on the lips than cheeks.4
I was so excited to receive this product in my Birchbox! I was originally intimidated by the dark coloring of the bottle and worried that I would look like a clown after application. It took me a few tries to get the right pigmentation that I wanted, but after a few days, I got the hang of it. I really feel like a little bit of this product goes a long way!4
I didn't used to be a fan of lip stains, but this product is slowly changing my mind. It looks a lot more natural then traditional lipsticks and it feels lightweight too!4
