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.

Effective all day

This lasted all day on my cheeks and I love the natural glow it gave me. It was horrible on my lips - ineffective and drying.

Nice Classic
Sampled

First time to try this product I've heard about for years. I can see why it is a favorite for many. I used it on my lips mainly. It worked well, but did not last a long time. The color is "OK", but better for those with, perhaps, lighter skin. I'm not fond of the rose smell/taste, but I could live with it. The sample brush seems too small to use on my cheeks, but I think it will work in a pinch. I'm happy to have tried it, will consider it for a future purchase.

Simple Everyday Tint
Sampled

I love to swipe this cherry red stain on my lips in the morning and top it with another lip product. Don't be set off by the bright color, it doesn't turn out as shocking on the lips as it seems! This product smells amazing and as always has the super cute packaging of Benefit! (I own this full-size product, however, despite what the birch box website says, I did not receive it in my box this month).

Beautiful Stain
Sampled

I dream of stuff like this - something that stays on and feels like a natural part of my skin. I don't usually put stuff on my cheeks but this actually looks pretty natural on me. As a lip stain this is not as great as other stains I have tried - it settles deeply into the inner part of my lips but not the outer, so application is uneven. It also disappears from my lips more quickly.

A bit too light for me
Sampled

I don't always wear anything other than chap stick on my lips, so when I do colors, I like them to be easy to apply and I like when they don't require me to reapply all day. I didn't really like this color because I found it to be too light for my skin. I actually looked like I didn't have anything on my lips, and I applied twice! I have a medium skin tone but I was pretty surprised that the color didn't show at all.

Lovely Little Stain
Sampled

I love this product! I don't use it so much for my cheeks, as I have a natural blush. But on my lips...it is quite lovely! It lasts all day, I just add a little gloss and I'm good to go.

Great product but not my color
Sampled

I prefer a pink blush to red, but otherwise I would love this product. The application is really smooth, it blends well and smells great. The stain is pretty light and is easy to make darker or keep it pretty natural looking.

I was nervous but it's GREAT!!
Sampled

I was super nervous the first day I decided to try the Benetint as my blush for the day. I used it right on top of my foundation, and it went on so nicely. It blends so well and looks so natural. I just put a few dabs along my cheek bones and then blended until it looked like a natural blush. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who likes the look wearing blush, especially without the dryness of a powder version.
