totally overhyped. the tint took so many applications to even see a hint of a glow, it was so watery and messy. it had a wonderful rosy scent, but that was the only thing good about this. ulg...
I think it's beautiful, both on lips and cheeks.. however.. it's MESSY! It's impossibly to apply, you're always getting it on your fingers and making a mess, plus it lasts about 5 minutes! It lasts even less on the lips! I think the Tarte cheek stains are a much better option if you want a natural looking stain that's easy to apply and lasts more than 5 minutes.
I find that benetint on its own doesn't stay on all day. Although i really like the shade on my very pale skin, I've found that if i seal it with a light dusting of powder blush (i use mac), it stays on a lot longer and gives a more 'finished' silky texture. sephora used to do a FANTASTIC rip off of this product in their own brand range. It had the same container/applicator, but came in several different shades of red and pink, and stayed on all day, for about a fifth of the price. bring it back! benetint didn't compare to its imitator!
I have this in the small tube with tint on one end and gloss on the other. I finally caved and bought it since the price was so much more affordable, and I couldn't see myself ever using the whole large jar. When I use this under something light, like mineral foundation, I'm left with a gorgeous natural glow that lasts until I wash it off--no fading whatsoever.
It has a numbing quality when I use it on my lips, and the staying power is just okay, but I really like the "stain" effect while it lasts.
GREAT CHEEK COLOR FOR ALL--I HAVE A TAN COMPLEXION WITH YELLOW UNDERTONES AND THIS LOOKS FABULOUS,HOWEVER IT IS PRICEY AND AFTER A WHILE IT DOESNT SEEM TO CLOSE PROPERLY AND LEAKS, THIS HAPPENED TO MY SIS AS WELL.
I read about this product in magazines for years, so I was excited to get it from Sephora. It di give me a nice flush, but the packaging made application difficult and it was a huge mess. It did not last very long either, but it was pretty while it lasted. The main beef I have with it is the packaging. I had to go on a trip, and the nail polish type bottle was in my makeup bag. When I closed it while in the hotel room, I apparently twisted it closed one time too many, and the seal on it broke somehow. It would "close", but not tight. It was only a few weeks old so I couldn't throw it out. I took my chances and got home to a pink stained makeup bag and all my products coated in sticky pink yuck. I like the results of the product but the packaging ruins it for me.
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this product before. I had high hopes for this, as I am always looking for that perfect stain that will actually give natural-looking color and STAY on for more than 2 seconds...well needless to say, this failed at doing both. It was difficult to attempt to use as a blush stain due to the nailpolish-like blush applicator, and on my lips, it was waaay too bright cherry-red and only stayed on long enough for me to accidently lick it off :-P
this is a really nice colour, i really like it as it gave my pasty morning look a rosy glow. however, its liquid and very easy to spill and it is sooooo expensive for blusher! it never runs out though to be fair. worth the money.
I really like how this looks on. It gives my pasty skin that natural flushed look. It's a staple in my makeup routine. I only use it on my cheeks, and on a rare occasion my lips. A little goes a long way, and you have to be careful when putting it on (it is very staining - I recommend putting it on before you get dressed so you don't accidentally get some on your clothes). I just wish it were more gel textured like theBalm's Stainiac. It probably wouldn't look good on someone with more yellow or bronze undertones, but works well on someone with somewhat fair skin and pink undertones like me.
I wanted to like this product but it did not live up to my expectations. While it does last a long time, the color is all wrong for me (NC30, light olive skin, brunette). The red made my lips look like I ate a popsicle and I don't really go for that look. On my cheeks, it made me look like I was standing out in the cold for hours. I will not repurchase. In fact, this sat in my medicine cabinet for years until I threw it out.
