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 the original Benefit tint and is a beautiful, natural, rosy color. It has a very liquid-y consistency so takes some time to layer on enough to get a deeper color but is well worth the time. It easily lasts all day once on.4
I got a sample of this a while ago. I don't usually wear much heavy makeup - I'm really finicky with lipsticks and balms because with my super oily skin, they tend to make me break out around my lips. This stuff is great! Just adds enough color to lips and cheeks to give the illusion of a more "natural" make up face (especially since I tend to accentuate eyes instead of lips). Then I can top with my normal lip balm that adds a little shine. Wore this for my sister-in-law's wedding, and it looked fantastic!5
I was disappointed with this product on myself. This blush is great for someone who doesn't need full coverage, as for me it didn't blend well with my foundation.3
This stain was very user friendly. It does dry quickly but blends very well. Gave my lips a deep, even rouge color4
I have never used a liquid stain before so I was skeptical. I have been a powder blush girl for a long time as the main staple of my beauty regimen. I now only use this stain for my daily cheek needs. it is subtle yet effective. With just one application it lasts all day through work and even into night occasionally with just a little touch up. I found it only slightly effective on my lip but it is nice to know if I ever need a bit of color added I can use just this one product.4
Natural long lasting color for lips but is a little sheer for cheeks and is a little hard to blend on cheeks but it helps under a light dusting of powder blush4
I just use this stuff on my lips, but I love it. I've never really been able to use anything thick and colored because my lips are always too chapped, but this doesn't make it look at all like you're wearing lipstick - it just makes it look like your lips are that nice red color. It isn't sticky or heavy in any way, and though it doesn't last forever it fades nicely. I hardly ever use anything else!5
Thank you Benefit for this amazing product!! I have been using this specific one for about 7 years and still going strong. Everytime I use it people are amazed because it looks like I'm putting nail polish on my face but when they see the results, they're jealous they don't have it. I usually will put this on over my foundation and pat it in with my index figure about 15 seconds after I've applied it to my cheekbones. It also works great when you combine with vaseline to make a good lip stain. Very versatile, I love it and I think anyone else would too!5
I absolutely love the color this stain gives my lips! I usually layer over it with Benebalm to provide some extra boost in color and hydration.5
I use this under my makeup and with blush on top. When my blush wears off, I still have color on my cheeks. Awesome!4
