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.

love the staining power
Purchased

love how it stains your lips for at least 8 hours! love the color - looks natural pink/red on my lips.
the only drawback is that it is not moisturizing, so you will have to apply a different product on top of it like lip balm or lip gloss. But it works for me since my lips become dry throughout the day and I have to use my lip balm often anyway. great product!

Rosy smell and color
Sampled

The product does smell strongly of roses but I actually like the smell. I was a little scares to use a liquid blush but it doesn't gone on dark and you have time to rub it in before it dries. Definitely need to put a couple coats but it is pretty subtle and you can't smell it once it dries.

I Love This Product!!

This stain is great! I love the build-able color allowing you to go as light or dark as you choose. This product is definitely a must-have!

The Best!

Love this for blush and lips! I just do a cheesy smile and then dab a dot in the center of my bubbled cheeks and then lightly rub towards my hair line. Its FABULOUS!

AMAZING

I seriously love this stuff. I received this as a sample in the January box. I wasn't a huge fan of using this on my lips as a lip stain, mainly because I have very chapped lips and it did not flatter me. However, I LOVE LOVE LOVE (did I say love?) this as a cheek stain. I put it on in the morning over my foundation and it staid until I washed my face at night. I purchased IMMEDIATELY.

Great 2-in-1 product!

I love Benetint! I like multi purpose products and this works well on the lips and as a blush. One coat gives a natural color and you can build up from there. The full size lasts forever! I don't even remember when I bought it, and it's only half gone even with frequent use (though I don't use it EVERY day).

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.

Not cheap, but lasts long and really works
Sampled

Benetint is one of those products that I'd seen in magazines a million times over and always thought "gee, I'd like to try this..." Well, I got a gift card for the holidays and figured I'd splurge.

I'm so glad I did. It gives a gorgeous flush to my lips. The color reminds me of the lips of girls in pre-Raphaelite paintings. So romantic! Plus, the rose smell is heavenly. My boyfriend did tell me I smelled like the bad guy in "The Hunger Games," but I don't even care.

I've also used Benetint (sparingly) on my cheeks. While it is a bit daunting to paint red liquid on one's face, it blends well and **SO FAR** has not caused my hyper-sensitive skin to erupt in pimples. I was a bit concerned about acne due to the fragrance and the fact that the brush comes in contact with "mouth bacteria," but so far, so good!
