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.

Great subtle lip color

Benefit cosmetics really shine with some of their more understated products - and this is certainly one of them. It stains lips without leaving any weird residue and it smells like roses. The applicator reminds me of nail polish (don't confuse the two) but the rest of the packaging is great.

Beautiful color

I haven't tried this product on my cheeks yet, but it is the perfect shade of pink/red for lips! I like to layer the color for a more dramatic effect and then put lip balm over!

Love it

Love the dewy fresh look this leaves your skin with. It works great for lips and emergency eye shadow also!

Perfect every time

I love Benetint because it gives the perfect amount of color every time. It's also long lasting, which means no need to reapply all the time!

Great for us low maintenance gals

I don't really use make-up, aside from eyeliner & mascara.

This tint is a wonderful natural blush, and fits easily into my morning 5min of attending to my face before running out the door.

So easy to apply, and forgiving in its placement - don't have to worry about streaks etc - just rub into your cheek while giving yourself a happy smile in the mirror.

The light rose scent is one of my favorite cosmetic scents.

The *perfect* blush look...
Purchased

So I've experimented with different ways with applying this stain to my lips and cheeks and here's what I've found to be the best application process…

1) One dunk in the bottle, then swipe across the lips
2) Drunk, swipe over right cheek, dunk again swipe over right cheek (let set)
3) One dunk in the bottle, then swipe across the lips (blot lips together
4) Drunk, swipe over left cheek, dunk again swipe over left cheek (let set)
5) One dunk in the bottle, then swipe across the lips (blot lips together
6) Using a blush brush, blend cheek stain (I've tried my hand, a sponge brush, a beauty blender…a plain old blush push seems to leave the most natural finish without soaking up all the product like a sponge does).

BONUS STEP: while the brush is still a little damp from blending Benefit Benetint, apply bronzer to cheek bones for a rosy sun kissed look!

Enjoyed this product.

I really enjoy using this product. I like that using just a small amount gives a slight color but that you can adjust the amount of color by using a larger amount.

Now I know why it's such a popular item

I haven't tried this as a cheek tint yet, but it's awesome as a lip stain and stays on for hours! Also, doesn't cause lips to be too dry like other similar products I've tried before.

So easy

I have always wanted to try this! Thanks Birchbox!! This is so easy to apply a child could do it. Three paint strokes and your good to go.. This did not do much for my lips but rocks on my cheeks!

Awesome

Love this on my cheeks... Doesn't do much for adding color to my lips, but gives me such a nice pink cheek for every day wear. I have bought MANY other blush sticks from MAC and NARS but I like this much better. I have a huge blush stick from NARS that I am trying to use before purchasing the benetint, but it's not the same!
