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.

Pretty, just not for me
Sampled

This stain offers a nice, natural flush for most, but it's not my preferred shade. I have very tan skin, so even with blending a few "layers" of color on my cheeks, it just didn't look quite right on me. My lips also didn't take the stain very well, and just looked like I ate a cherry popsicle. A positive is that a little goes a long way, so even the small sample will last a while!

Not my cheeks
Sampled

This product made me really skeptical from the start. I don't like trying products I've never heard of on my lips because they're really sensitive to some products, so I thought I might try it on my cheeks. Before applying it to my cheeks I put a small dab on my hand to gauge how much to use.. and decided there was no way I would put it on my cheeks.. ever! It was a really dark and obvious color that I couldn't smear enough to make it look more subtle.. I would have looked like a CLOWN if I used it on my cheeks. So glad I didn't. Hope it works for other people's lips.. heck, or nipples according to the packaging.

I really liked this tint. It's suttle, a nice complement for a natural look.

great for cheeks
Sampled

I like this for my cheeks. It starts as a light color that blends easily and is very build able. I do find it doesn't take much to go from barely noticeable to a bit much. "Woah, hey blushie!" were my fiance's kind words. But once I got the hang of it, i found I really like the color. And the rosy smell is nice too. This does not work so well for me as a lip stain. Ive tried many times, and the color just isn't right, and it doesn't stay on my lips for long anyway.

I love benetint---I have tried the product before, but it has been awhile. I mainly use this for a lip tint as I often forget to reapply throughout the day. I love that the color is natural looking and it is easy to apply. I will be purchasing after I finish with my sample.

Love it as a lip tint!
Sampled

I am super into this product as lip tint. It has an amazing scent and is perfect for a low-maintenance day under some lip balm. I have mixed feelings about it as a blush as it takes off my powder foundation when I smudge it on. Maybe it is the product or maybe it is my technique. This would be perfect for a foundation-less day when I want a super minimalistic look.

I've never tried liquid lip or cheek tint b/c I assumed it'd go on really intensely and dry before I had time to smudge it. This was far from the experience I expected-I loved it. I applied a decent amount and rubbed it in with no issues. Gave my lips and cheeks a nice rosy hue. I did prefer it on my cheeks tho'. (Left a darker ring toward the inside of my lips and I tasted a little accidentally-blech!) Overall a great product tho'. I'm definitely sticking this in my purse. Great way to perk up your look on the go.
