This product is one of my essentials! The deep-cherry color comes off lighter than it appears in the bottle, and comes off to a sheer raspberry on the skin. Since I have a more rounder, heart-shaped face, I put 3 strokes on the top of my cheekbones, near my hairline, and blend away. Great for those rushed-mornings!
This is one of those everlasting products, I just realized I bought mine almost a year ago and it's still not completely gone.
Just a little bit is enough because it's a stain and the color is really strong so it really will seem like it lasts forever.
I use it both on my lips and cheeks and it looks great.
If you're using it on your lips make sure to use some chapstick or gloss on top because this is not a lipstick, it's a stain and it doesn't contain any moisturiser.
Overall I'd buy it again
I have used powder blushes for years and I decided to give this one a go. The reviews I had read were varied, as is mine. The smell is delicious! The colour I have to say is great! No complaints there. My only complaint is that it is difficult to rub in. It ends up looking like you just put the blush on and didn't rub it in, and since it is a stain it's hard to fix it if you messed up You have to rub it in the second it goes on your face or else it will stay streaky. I like this product and would recommend it to others.
I like this product, which leaves a very stubborn lasting stain on my skin, but I must be VERY careful when using it: I need a very light hand and I need to blend it as fast as I can, or the color will stain my cheek (it seems to penetrate and dry as fast as... well, add your similarity here).
I use it under my foundation: my skin looks glowy and fresh.
I find it hard to use, dont get all that hype
I got this in my Topbox and had been dying to try it for ages. I hadn't taken the plunge because it looked scary and REALLY dark and is hella expensive (38$ Can.) So when it showed up in my Topbox I was thrilled!
It CAN be tricky to apply, especially if it doesn't agree with your foundation (trial and error I guess.) I find it works best if I put it on before I put on my foundation, or if I am using BB cream it goes on like a dream afterwards.
I put on three big dots (make sure to blend FAST to avoid having three permanent dots!) and blend like there is no tomorrow. It gives me a beautiful, HONEST flush. It looks like you're blushing from within instead of powder blushes that sit on top of your skin and tend to look "powdery". This isn't one of the blushes that looks good angled along your cheekbones (at least not on me.) I put it on the apples of my cheeks, where I would normally go pink if I was giddy, jogging or tipsy :)
I found that a sponge soaks too much of it up too fast and a brush just doesn't move it around well, so fingers for this girl. Oh, and for all the people complaining that it stains your fingers- try washing them afterwards, it comes off with soap... Like really easily.
Try to find a sample to see that this product is for you, or buy a "kit" that includes it... The other products in the Primping With The Stars kit are phenomenal! Really. Try the POREfessional, it will change your (makeup) life :)
This is one of my HG products. I get compliments on my skin EVERYTIME I wear it without fail. It gives my cheeks this awesome satiny flush. I happen to love the smell and rosewater is pretty good for your skin anyway.
Of course, the downside as a dark-skinned woman is that you can't just use the "3 dots" and see results. You should be a lot more generous and build it up until you get the flush you want.
my gripe has to do with the fact that the bottle is glass and shatter very easily. It has broken on me twice and I haven't gotten to finish it. I would rather get a shatterproof plastic and pay less money.
I tend to wear it over my cream or liquid foundations or just on clean, moisturized skin. This product is all about effortless beauty.
I think most of people's issues with BeneTint are derived from lack of proper application. If you're not getting the desired effect try mixing a little bit of a liquid highlighter with it. This creates a beautiful flush to the cheeks with a shimmering bonus!! I Long live BeneTint
The best thing about this product - the smell! Oh my goodness it's just lovely, truly smells like roses. Great as a lip tint, you can build it up really easily from a very subtle pink to red lips. Good as a cheek tint, though I mainly use it as a lip tint. Has great staying power - will be buying this again!
I really love the color that this tint gives me on my lips. I don't use it on my cheeks because I like it more on my lips. Benetint has a nice nailpolish-like brush. I just brush some product onto my lips and spread/blend it out with my fingers and then rub my lips together. It gives a beautiful yet natural rosy and berry-like stain on your lips.
My complaint: the taste. I accidentally licked my lips right after brushing it onto my lips and... yuck. It's kind of a bitter taste. However, don't worry about the taste. After the product dries on your lips, there is no taste at all. Just don't lick Benetint when it's wet.
The staying power is pretty good but I do have to reapply after several hours. I can build up the color too. With one light layer, it's an enhancement of my natural lips. With two or more, it's a lovely cherry tint that still looks natural. Love.
Really expensive though. I had to bite the bullet on this one but I don't regret it.
