Benefit Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

This lightweight stain goes on sheer for buildable rosy coverage. The long-lasting formula is made with carmine rose petals and lasts for hours. Not surprisingly, it’s a staple with celebrities, makeup artists, and models (not to mention Birchbox staffers).

I can NOT live without it!

This product is a staple in my make-up bag. It's light weight and doesn't cause breakouts. Gives me just the right amount of color without making me look like I've loaded up my face with too much make-up. Works great under lip gloss on the lips too! Plus: the bottle lasts quite a long time! Well worth every penny.

Love the tint
Purchased

I love everything this brand has to offer. This is one of the best stains out there. It gives you the flush minus the heavy layering.

Awesome product but awful taste

This is a gorgeous product, long lasting, beautiful color. But it tastes just awful so I hardly ever use it.

Great!

I have this and I love it! I use it pretty much everyday and it seems to go with everything. It also lasts for a long time.

Lip stain

This product works great under a lip gloss in place of a liner for some extra color.

How did I live without?
Purchased

Gone are the days of blush that starts rosy but fades by mid-day! Benetint gives the most perfectly natural flush to my fair skin, and it doesn't budge throughout the day. I draw three lines per the instructions and use my BeautyBlender to blend (so as not to stain my fingers), and it melts in evenly without any streaks. I've used several cream and gel blushes and have never used one that worked so well. It works great as a lip stain as well and is very buildable from a sheer rose to a more intense red. I love the rose scent and am addicted to the matching Benebalm as well. Seriously, how did I live without this?

Love this multi-handy product

This is perfect for a hint of rosy color on checks and lips. On my short list of make-up musts! AND it lasts forever. I have had the same bottle for over 2 years and not even halfway through ((and I spilled it once too!!))

Love It!!

I absolutely love this product. I am able to use just a little or a lot on my cheeks and lips for just that little bit of extra glow. I can either use it alone for a light sun kissed look or as an extra layer under my regular blush and/or lipstick. This is definitely a mainstay in my cosmetic bag no matter where I go.

Lasts forever

I use this on my lips -- not bold enough to try on my cheeks. It creates a nice, subtle stain and lasts a long while. I layer with lipgloss -- either tinted or clear.
