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.

Best Sample EVER

I have always been a huge fan of Benefit's products, but this tint absolutely takes the cake. I've always used the PosieTint, and I was elated to find that they had a tint in such a classic color. The tint goes on like a dream, and stays throughout the day. It does not dry out my lips, but I would recommend hydrating your kisser before application. I have already told everyone I know about this tint. It is PERFECT. I have not tried it on my cheeks, because I am very fair skinned, but I may give it a try soon. I love it!

Expected more from a "stain"

Haven't tried this on my cheeks, as I'm always cautious about anything that red. Perhaps based on the lack of longevity on my lips, I should give it a shot. The sample I received seems really watery and even when trying to build the color, it just doesn't seem to have any staying power. Sad. I do love how natural it looks, though.

Pretty great

Lovely smell, but can be tricky to use. Gives a nice natural flush if it's done right. It doesn't take a lot either so the bottle will last forever.

LOVE.

I've been dying to get my hands on a Benetint for the longest time, and finally I got a sample through Birchbox. I tried it immediately and I loved it. The color is beautiful and although at first I had a hard time getting it to look right, in the end it looked gorgeous. I would definitely buy.

Benetint....love thisss!

I'm not one to wear too much lipstick because of having to reapply or the smudging, but this product does not apply like a lipstick, it's literally a tinted liquid that gives life to your face. You know how your lips become red stained from kool-aid? Well this product does just that! I normally apply a clear gloss over or a balm, also I do rub some onto my cheeks and I feel like my face looks refreshed and anew. I accidentally slept with it over night (I normally wash my face every night but also did not wear foundation) and when I awoke, my lips were still stained and my cheeks looked adorably rosey! Definitely glad I received this in my birchbox and will be buying this product as well!!!!

Love

Use this for cheek color OR lips. Light and easy use a little or a more depending on how much color you want. When I use on my lips I follow with either chap stick or gloss

Good Product

I liked this product very much. It gives very natural and subtle results. Make sure to blend very quickly after application though.

Inovative

I bought this a few years back from Sephora. I really like the product, but in order to get a deeper, long-lasting red, you have to put on multiple coats...and it doesn't stay on as well as I'd hoped.

Also, it is rose-scented...so you definitely get a bitter taste when applying it.

Love this! Use it everyday

I never leave home without this product now! It's great to just add a touch of color to your cheekbones towards the end of a work day when your bronzer has already faded away. I can discreetly use this product and blend on my cheeks. Works like a charm every time and looks so natural. Highly recommend.
