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 was SO excited to try out this product - it's such a cult classic, so I was hoping it lived up to the hype. I tested it for a few days as a cheek stain (I'm more of a lipstick girl so I didn't test on my lips) and it delivered a soft but definitely noticeable tint that lasted all day. The only thing I didn't love about this product is that it didn't seem to love me - it caused my cheeks to break out. Maybe I can get away with using it occasionally but I won't be adding this to my every day routine.3
I have used this product before and LOVED receiving a travel size! This is one of my faves so I guess Birchbox knows how to choose products for me!5
I'm a makeup novice and am too nervous to try using this on my cheeks just yet - powder blush is more than fine for me! I have used it as a lip tint, and though the color doesn't last as long as I'd like, I think it's a really beautiful, full color. I'll likely keep using it as a lip tint, but I may get adventurous and try it as blush! It would be great if the instructions could be more clear for n00bs like me.4
I love benefit products and had tried the benetint prior to getting it in this month's box. My sister uses it all the time. Great product, a little goes a long way.4
I like the product...it worked great. I am currently using a mineral product, so this was nice change.5
Love this product - especially in the cold winter months when my skin is super drab. Just the right amount of color that lasts a LONG time! Love that I'm not 'eating' the color the second I take a sip of a drink or a bite of food like I do with lipgloss or lipstick. It actually sticks around!4
This product is great if you're looking to make your lip/cheek color last a lot longer than it normally would. I tried it as a lip stain underneath my normal lip gloss and wore it on date night when I knew my husband and I would be out for a long time and I'd be putting my lips on lots of wine glasses! It really helped my color look vibrant all night long. I wouldn't wear it everyday (or as a blush -- I just don't like myself in blush, nothing against the product), but for an occasion where you want your makeup color vibrant all night long, this is for you!5
Love this product! Will definitely be buying soon!5
I liked it on my lips better than my cheeks. It doesn't blend well on my skin.4
I did like the slight tint this product gave but couldn't handle that it smelt and tasted like a rose. Yuck I don't want that on my lips.2
