Benefit Cosmetics 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.

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

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

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'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.

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!

Perfect Rosy Glow

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.

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 up
