Benefit Benetint

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.

I've wanted to try Benetint for so long. I'm glad I finally did! I actually sampled it at Sephora and bought it from Birchbox... That was mu plan, but I didn't feel so bad about doing it since Sephora was out of stock anyway :-)

I have oily/combination skin. Fair (winter) to medium (summer). My skin is mostly clear, but I get the occasional zit and have some receding acne marks. I used Rx acne treatment and minimal light foundation all over. I also use Benefit's Porefessional primer.

After I prime some oily areas and do my light foundation I add 3-6 quick strokes of Benetint to my cheeks and pat to blend with my fingers. The color is natural, buildable, long lasting, and sheer. I love having color without shimmer. It's really nice to dab on your lips (after a bit of balm), too.

I sampled the pink shade of this tint and still preferred the classic red. I was intimidated by a stain, but this stuff is really foolproof. You can go as subtle or as bold as you'd like. I also feel like the bottle will last forever! I like not having to worry about a blush powder crumbling all over my makeup bag. This is definitely a winner that lives up to its reputation :-)

The perfect stain!
Sampled

I love this so much. I feel like it has been a favorite for years but I just tried it myself for the first time when it came in my box. That is why Birchbox is the best! It is a great rosy color, that is not too intense and really lasts. It kind of dries up your lips when you put it on, but I think that is why it stays and I simply just layer some chapstick on top. The mini size is perfect for keeping in my purse so I think I will continue to keep it and refill it with the full size version.

Love it!

This tint has a very natural look to it! I love the ease and convenience of this product! The color looks dark or red in the bottle, but it the most beautiful and natural color.

Great lip stain
Sampled

Loved this product as a lip stain. Never tried on my cheeks, but great long lasting color for lips with a natural look.

My new "go to" cheek color
Purchased

I was a bit scared to try this product but have found I love it. I put my creme blush away and only use this. Some reviews say it doesn't last long, but I haven't found a blush that lasts longer. It's easy to use and puts the perfect rosy tint on my cheeks. I haven't had as much luck on my lips as I always stain the bottom one darker for some reason. I'm going to keep trying though!

Perfect color
Purchased

I love this stain if there was anything to fix it would be that it can be drying without a balm over it or something. Also the brush is very ticklish on my lips.

One of my favorite products EVER

I love, love, love Benetint. The color makes for a very natural rosy glow, and you can easily intensify the color. I have fair skin, so on most days my routine is just tinted moisturizer, Benetint, and lip balm and I am ready to go.

Perfect lip stain

I love Benetint! I haven't used it on my cheeks, but it's great as a lip stain. You can wear it solo or to intensify a lipstick or gloss color. It's very long lasting.

Favorite thing in my makeup box
SampledPurchased

I LOVE my Benetint. I use it every day, it never brakes me out, it stays all day, and I don't have to worry about getting makeup on my clothes. You can add more or less depending on how dark you would like it to show. I have tried lots of cheek tints, this is by far the best. My first bottle lasted almost a year with every day use! That makes it less expensive than some of the cheaper items that you buy a few times a year. It also looks so natural.
