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.
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!4
It didn't show on my lips at all :(
also I'm not a huge fan of the smell
I LOVE this product! I received a sample in another subscription box awhile back and wanted to buy a full size of it and then received one in my BB. It is so natural on the skin. Stays on all day long and is the perfect shade of blush. I will also use it as a lip tint and it is great, just enough to pop the natural color of my lips. Thanks Benefit!5
Tried it on my cheeks just did not work so tried on my lips it was not bad but the taste was so chemically tasting could not use it for my lips3
I love Benefit cosmetics. I like using this product on my lips but don't think I would ever use it for my cheeks.3
I like this product a lot on lips; however, not on cheeks at all. I didn't think it blended well and you have to put a lot of product on to get real color. Personally for cheeks I would stick to a powder or cream blush.2
I like this concept and think this would be great for a night out with a dramatic lip; however, it's not something I would personally use every day.3
Love this stain - perfect for lips and cheek! I like to use my Dr. Lipp balm before or after to give my lips a bit of moisture, and add the stain for color. It lasts for a long time and gives a really pretty pink-red shade depending on how much you apply. Must have!5
Not sure if there even is a fuss. This is pleasant enough to use - light, no real odor, easy to apply - but I just didn't see that it really did anything. I got a good pinkish glow on my cheeks and lips right after application but it was gone the next time I checked the mirror.3
I love this for my cheeks! But, I did not like it as a lip stain. The rose scent reminded me of the rose scented perfumes and lotions that were popular among older ladies when I was a kid. Anyway, I couldn't really smell it when I put it on my cheeks. But the scent was strong on my lips, and didn't really add much color, no more than a fruity lip balm would.4
