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.
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!
I LOVE benefit cosmetics and have been wanting to try this! Once I get the hang of how to use it, I think it will be amaze!3
I've always wanted to try this but have been scared off by the color and the full size price. Really liked this as a cheek and lip stain. A little went a long way for my fair skin and be sure to blend immediately after application, otherwise the color will be uneven and stick to the dry parts.4
I really love this product! It is the perfect tint for lips and is long lasting. I apply before leaving the house and then top with chap stick. I love it!5
This product works best as a natural looking blush. I don't really recommend using it as a lip tint because it has a weird taste.5
Easy natural blushed look. Love it for days I look like a pale monster going to work at 5am! It really pinken'd up my cheeks without looking like I had much make up on! Def a must for days when you want minimal make up5
I liked that with just one layer you could create some color... but nothing drastic. I'm not a big lip color so this slight tint was great! Easy application as well.4
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.1
Ehh. I'm not in love with this product. It worked as advertised and stayed on longer than your average color, but it didn't leave me rushing to my computer to order it. It does what it says, but didn't knock my socks off.2
This product is great, you can add a little or a lot to find the perfect shade for you. It dries quickly but not quick enough that you would have streaks on your face. Love this product and I will definitely switch my blush out for this product once I am out of everything.5
