Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain

In 1977, Jane and Jean Ford, the twin sisters behind Benefit, met a 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 best-seller for good reason: the translucent color leaves us with a natural flush so we look pretty, not made-up.

Fun but doesn't last

This is a fun idea and the color is gorgeous; however, the stain just doesn't last-on lips or cheeks. It works in a pinch but I don't think I would buy the full-size product.

Ok but strong scent
Sampled

I tried this as a lip tint and as a blush and I although I prefer it as a lip tint the scent was just too floral for me to wear that close to my nose. It is ver subtle as a blush even after a few applications and the color on the lips is very nice but still natural shade. I personally don't like floral scents and so I only docked it 1 star because otherwise it's a lovely product.

Love this stuff. Can be made as subtle or dramatic as needed.

Feels light but lasts all day

Really liked this product more than powder blushes I've tried that seem to disappear after a few hours. Overall pretty weightless, but has staying power.

Great cheek tint

This is a great cheek tint. I use it on my cheeks then put my blush over it. The tint makes the blush last all day. I have used it on my lips, but think it is better on the cheeks.

Works nicely on lips

The product isn't as strong as I expected. I like the color and application better on the lips than cheeks.

Liked this once I got the hang of it!
Sampled

I was so excited to receive this product in my Birchbox! I was originally intimidated by the dark coloring of the bottle and worried that I would look like a clown after application. It took me a few tries to get the right pigmentation that I wanted, but after a few days, I got the hang of it. I really feel like a little bit of this product goes a long way!

Great for a splash of color
Sampled

I didn't used to be a fan of lip stains, but this product is slowly changing my mind. It looks a lot more natural then traditional lipsticks and it feels lightweight too!

A little streaky, too wet
Sampled

I liked the stain. It looks natural and lasts awhile, but I found it too runny for my taste. You have to blend as soon as you apply it because it sets fast and if you're not careful, you can see where you brushed it on your face. It might work better on bare skin so it doesn't smear your foundation around.

I liked the effect this product had, but it was almost drying to my lips. I had to reapply lip balm several times throughout the day. Good color and easy to apply.
