Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain

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.

versatile stain

The stain works well to give your lips and/or cheeks a rosy color. It goes on smoothly in a liquid. The product is quite unique.

Great stain

Been using Benetint for years and its one of my favorite beauty products. Very versatile, can be used as check or lip stain and it works. One way to use it most don't know about is with a blush brush. Put 3 dots and blend with your brush. Just get to it quick or it'll leave dots!

Feels natural!

Stain feels natural on your lips as it doesn't leave a sticky residue. Love using it to look like my lips are naturally stained pink!

Love those rose cheeks!

This tint really keeps its color on both lips and cheeks, even through a workout! The rose smell is really nice, but not a fan of the taste. Fabulous color!

Great product

$30 is a bit cost prohibitive, but this is by far my favourite tint. It smells fantastic and the color looks great on just about everyone! I've been using this for years.

Smells great, natural look

Very natural looking on both cheeks and lips. It didn't last as long on my lips, even without eating or drinking anything, it was gone within a couple hours. The color and smell are really nice though.

So cool!
Sampled

I never knew such a product existed! I have rather dry lips so will have to try again after some exfoliation, but it has a nice tint. I also love that you can add layers to control tint. Very cool product.

Great natural color on lips
Sampled

Even though it looks really dark in the bottle, this product leaves a nice natural pink tint on the lips. It works best if lips are exfoliated and not too dry. Otherwise, it runs to inside of lip and looks like you've been eating a popsicle. It's a really thin liquid. I find it worked best if I pressed lips together after applying so that it absorbed quickly. It did have a funny bitter taste at first, but that went away after a bit. I liked it with a clear gloss over it best.

It's more difficult to apply to cheeks, I thought, but maybe I was applying it wrong. I think I used too much the first time. It also seems to work better when blended with a brush. Otherwise, it will absorb into your fingers and turn them red. I will keep practicing on the cheeks. I do like that it lasts a long time on cheeks and lips. I will probably purchase this product when I run out of my sample.

great color

I don't normally like "stains" but this one went on nice and smooth. I was very impressed with the color. The sample was a little small and therefore a little difficult to apply.

Good everyday product
Sampled

I like the stain on my lips with a little vaseline, looks natural and healthy. Reminds me of summer after eating a cherry popsicle. This is a great product for a casual Satruday, but not polished enough for the office.
