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.

Very subtle
Sampled

The color of this tint is very subtle both on my lips and on my cheeks. It smells good, but tastes bad if you accidentally get it in your mouth before it dries. You only need a tiny bit, which is nice, a little goes a very long way.

Gave it Away
Sampled

When my mom and I received our boxes, she was hoping to receive this product, and did not. I got it in my box, but I wasn't a fan of it, so I traded her for her mascara.

Tint is great

The color was really ice and natural. But I felt like it really dried out my lips.

great color
Sampled

I really love this benetint for my lips. It gives it a great subtle color that stays. I like to use it over my chapstick. I have not tried it on my cheeks yet, but only because I like the blush I already have.

Great cheek stain!
Sampled

This is one of those products I always wanted to buy but never quite justified spending the money on it, so it's exciting to get a sample of it in Birchbox. The color gives a great flush to cheeks, with staying power. I use Benefit's cha cha tint and posie tint, and I love how they look on my cheeks, too (and that a little bit goes a long way!). I can't speak to Benetint as a lip stain.

Classic Stain
Sampled

Good for the summer, but I'm not a huge fan of cheek/lip stains. This is the classic.

Nice!
Sampled

I tend to stick to using powder blush on my cheeks, but I was really satisfied with this product as a lip tint. It smells lovely, goes on easily (even more easily than most of the lip stains or tints I've used), and stays for a decent while. I liked it quite a bit.

Nice for a quick dash of color.
Sampled

The color of this product is beautiful, particularly on the cheeks. I think it would be great for mornings that are rushed when you really need to simplify. But it doesn't have quite the same nice finish as a traditional blush in my normal routine. Went well with my smashbox clear lip gloss for a natural looking lip color!
