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.

Looks natural!

This lip tint looks amazing for almost any skin tone. I usually don't wear anything straight up red, but this was so natural looking in color. The only thing I don't like is how it looks after it starts wearing off in a few hours, or if you're eating and drinking it goes quicker. That still doesn't stop me from wearing it though!

Just perfect
Sampled

I love the natural look that this stain provides. Just the right amount of pinky red to look natural without looking fake. I like not having to worry about smearing it everywhere too. I'm not a fan of the taste but that is actually a good thing since I chew on my lower lip when I'm stressed. The taste definitely discourages lip chewing. I'll be buying this when my sample runs out.

This stuff rocks!

Benetint is my go to blush for all four seasons. I tried the cha-cha benetint as a sample from birchbox and was hooked. Both give me great color and they last a long time. Great product!

I didn't hate the color of the tint. What I really didn't like is when I put it on my lips, it smelled/tasted like I had just eaten a rose. Not a fan.

The Original Tint
Sampled

I haven't used this product in a few years - I prefer a powder blush rather than a stain, but look forward to using the product on my lips.

Taste?
Sampled

I liked the idea of the product more than the product itself. It went on nicely but left some parts of my lips darker than others and had a strange taste even after the product was dry.

Perfect tint

I have never used a product like this but I love it. The stain is subtle and lasts for hours

Not the best
Sampled

I have used several different brands of lip and cheek stains before and this is my least favorite of them all. The color does not last very long and the color is not really dark enough to really make a difference.

Holy red
Sampled

I liked that it has two uses but the color was so intimidating I liked that less was more but I prefer natural lips.

Mediocre
Sampled

I didn't find this product very effective - a little complicated to use, and the redness didn't really show on my lips or cheeks, even when I applied multiple layers. Cute sample though.
