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.

did't like

I didn't care for this product. It did the reverse of what I would want in a lip product by staining my lips red. My lips just looked irritated.

Fun to use!
Sampled

I thought this was so cute, you apply it in little drops that look kind of syrup-y. I love it as a lip tint because it doesn't fade or get on your teeth. I don't know if I'm using it right as a blush tint, but it's still really fun to apply! The downside was that I spilled some and it kinda stained my finger for a bit, but that was over an hour ago and it's almost gone now. Love this product so far!

Easy to use

This product was easy to use and provided great color. It dried quickly so I could just apply a coat of gloss and I was out the door. This is a plus with the pace of my life.

Great for everyday

I like to use very little makup on most days. This gives me just a hint of color that is very natural looking.

BeneTint on lips
Sampled

I am a fan of powder blush for my cheeks, so of course I tried the benetint on my lips as a lip stain. The color is wonderful, and the scent is light rose-scented, which I liked a lot. However, this tastes terrible if you happen to lick your lips when it is either wet or already dried. I did find it to be much less sticky than other gel style lip tints, so I would be more likely to try it on my cheeks. It lasted significantly longer than other lip stains I have tried, however the application is alittle messy. My first time, I simply brushed it onto my lips and layered several coats to develop a dark stain that I desired. The formula is super watery, so it bled into the creases of my lips and even out onto the skin around my lips. I definitely suggest a red or clear lip liner to block this bleeding color if you plan to apply with the brush. The next time, I dotted it onto my lips and blended with my finger. That produced a softer effect and less bleeding, however, then my finger was red for a while. I truly prefer the "marker" pointed tip pen style applicators for lip stain. Obviously this product doubles as a cheek stain, where a pen wouldn't be the best application method, so I understand the brush for benetint. Overall, i enjoy the product. I hope they come out with an orange shade, I have been looking for one!!

Loved it!
Sampled

I really enjoyed this product. I only use it on my lips (not cheeks, so I'm not sure how it works there). But, it looks great on lips. I'm usually not a huge fan in the 2-1 products, but I like this brand and product.

Good, but not great

I was really excited to try this when I got it in my birchbox -- such a great idea. Sadly, on my skin tone the lip stain is barely visible and comes off easily - on cups for example. The cheek stain works but a powder blush works better, in my opinion.

Love it

I love Benefit products and this has always been one of my favorites. The rose scent is perfect and the color provides just enough color to look natural on my skin.

Rose red tint

This tint is a beautiful rose red color on lips and a natural flush look on cheeks. Great product and it smells like roses what more can you ask for.
