Benefit 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.

So excited to get this sample!

I have been wanting to try Benetint for ages, but just never got around to it so I was super happy to see this sample in my first Birchbox shipment! I really liked it - it gives a very sheer, very natural flush to your cheeks and the tiniest bit of color to your lips. Like you would look if it were a perfect world. Not too much, not too little. And the scent of roses is very nice, too.

Didn't really work for me

It didn't really tint as well as I wanted. I used it on my lips. I also didn't appreciate the scent.

Classic Favorite

I am not very makeup-savvy, but I have had this in my collection for some time now, and I still love it. My makeup tends to disappear quickly, (especially by the end of the day) so sometimes powder blushes don't last very long. This tint is a beautiful healthy color and stays on my face longer!

Nice color

When I saw the color of Benetint, I expected it to be a lot brighter. It is actually quite natural looking which I prefer. It's a nice way to control how saturated you want the color to be. Works really nice on the cheeks.

Not for everyone

I'm not one to wear this bold of a color on my lips or cheeks normally. I let a friend use it and it looked way better on her.

Great lip stain!

Benetint is a great lip stain, but I shy away from using it on my checks. Love the scent to it also!

Multi-use

You can start light and get darker just by applying more layers, and I love that you can use it on your lips OR cheeks. Though I would definitely used a different brush when it comes to blending, or your pads of your fingers. Great overall product. Only gave 4 stars since it's not that long lasting, but is a great product overall.

Just the best

I love Benetint. I have been using it for years. It is the perfect thing to carry when you need a little color for your lips or cheeks. I use it under a clear lip gloss and it creates a lasting color.

Like it, would use in the summer

I really like the concept of this product. It smells like roses, but does not taste bad or anything. My only gripe about this product was that using it in the winter when your lips get dry is not the best time to use this product. I have little cracks in my lip from the cold weather that no amount of chapstick can fix and the tint tends to seep into the cracks and excencuate them. Otherwise I loved it, and I liked the build able factor.

Beautiful color and great longevity. Goes on super easy and very easy to blend. I was a bit intimidated of a stain but have definitely become a fan!
