Apply Benetint to your cheeks and then blend Benefit’s High Beam onto your cheekbones for a luminous glow.

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 it Works

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).

How to Use

Smile and dab three small strokes on the apples of your cheeks. Blend immediately, as the formula does dry quickly. Next, dot on your lips and blend with clean fingertips. Apply another layer if you want a deeper crimson hue.

Long lasting and pretty flush

This blush is SO natural looking and SO long lasting! I tend to like powder blushes but they usually fade by the end of the work day. Benetint always stays on throughout the day and looks great on my fair skin. I was really pleasantly surprised by it!

Happy to try this cult favorite

While I was happy to try this cult favorite, I wasn't impressed. It does work great for me as a lip tint, but not for a cheek tint.

classic product

I first tried Benetint at a sleepover in high school. I've been hooked on Benefit makeup ever since. It's got a nice rosewater fragrance and just a dot is enough to last you all day. Definitely worth the money. This is perfect for that "oh me? I'm not wearing any makeup" look.

Benefits Benetint is now a part of my daily makeup routine. I have turned on several of my girl friends to the product. From the ease of application, to the all-day wearability, this is a must have in your makeup bag.

Best Tint

I loved it, actually my daughters want to steal it. I tried some other stain sample and loved it. when I was about to buy it, I found this one and I liked the reviews, so after trying it, could not be happier, the only thing I'm not so sure is the way you have to apply it, since it's a brush it tickles and I'm afraid the container may break, but the stain is natural and awesome

So versatile!

So the fact that you get 2 products in one is great! Especially when traveling. The color is a little bright at first but I just work it in until I get the blush color I like and the rose smell is great as a lip gloss!

2-for-1

Received this as a sample a while back, but I'm still using this product! I love it. Its easily able to be used for a little flush on the cheeks, or the perfect tint of red to the lips. I've used it under a red lipstick to help keep the appearance of color if the lipstick wasn't a long-wear. The cheeks can get tricky, you've gotta be careful and fast.

Stays Put..

I received this as a sample and was excited to try it out. Then I put it on and it looked funky with my pale face. I'm hoping to try another color and hope it looks better. Because I do feel it's a good product.

I've been using it for years!

Benetint is a great product for cheeks and lips. It gives a natural looking blush and lasts all day. I use it daily under a tinted lip balm to give my lips a natural color boost.

gorgeous, natural flush
SampledPurchased

I'm only so-so on this as a lip stain, but as a blush -- wow! I rarely get enough sleep, and this seriously keeps me from looking tired and/or sick, but never looks like "makeup." Also, I love the burst of rose scent (which fades quickly and doesn't interfere with perfume or anything, if you worry about things like that).
