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.

Nice for a quick dash of color.

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!

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!

love this, but not for me

I love Benefit cosmetics. I like using this product on my lips but don't think I would ever use it for my cheeks.

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.

Good for a night out

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.

Fantastic!

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!

Not sure what the fuss is about
Sampled

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.

Yes to cheeks, No to lips
Sampled

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.
