Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain

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.

Love Benetint!!
Sampled

One of the best stains I have used! It was my go to years ago so I'm to add it to my makeup bag again!
Its very watery (unlike the gel consistency of Stainiac) but easy to spread on your cheeks and really nice natural flush color.
Highly recommended!

Nice tint, but didn't last long
Sampled

It's awfully expensive for what it is - it really didn't last long on my lips - I think the little sample will be gone in a couple days, and that doesn't inspire me to buy the full size.

Great tint
Sampled

I love the natural red tint it gives my lips, it is perfect because I don't prefer to wear lipsticks because I feel they look too unnatural on me. I did find this to be a bit drying on my lips though, so I have to keep chapstick on me to keep my lips hydrated. It smells so lovely too :)

Amazing Product
Sampled

I've thought about trying Benefit products for a long time but was always put off by the cost. Now that I've had this sample in my January box, I think I'm hooked! This stain is amazing. It's the perfect color for my very light skin tone. On lips, it's not the longest lasting stain I've used, but it's much better as a cheek stain. One layer is the perfect light tint to add just a bit of color to the face, but it's so easy to layer it for a little more drama.

I tend to wear makeup on the not so heavy side. I typically never wear lip color as it is too bold for my style. I tried this and LOVE it because it gives your lips a nice natural rosy color. I can wear this daily and not feel weighed down from it. Also since it is a stain it doesn't rub off when I kiss my boyfriend or when I drink out of a glass. A definite must have for me!

I hate lipstick but my lips are really pale. This is a great option to get a subtle red lip without the sticky feeling.

Benetint

I like this product for the bit of color it adds to my lips. Really nice for a little pop on them for early morning workouts! I don't look so washed out at the early hour! I don't like it for my cheeks. I feel like I look like a flushed little girl.

Natural Look

I love that Benetint leaves your lips and cheeks looking natural! It does not look like there is color on them at all. It feels very natural as well, and does not leave your lips dry like some lip stains.

versatile stain

The stain works well to give your lips and/or cheeks a rosy color. It goes on smoothly in a liquid. The product is quite unique.

Great stain

Been using Benetint for years and its one of my favorite beauty products. Very versatile, can be used as check or lip stain and it works. One way to use it most don't know about is with a blush brush. Put 3 dots and blend with your brush. Just get to it quick or it'll leave dots!
