I'm Asian, with highly sensitive skin, so I wanted to make sure I wouldn't react badly to this product, and that the color really would work with my coloring...I heard that Benetint is great for cool beauties, but now I can say that Benetint worked well for me, with my pale, warm-toned skin.
I shelled out 40 big ones CDN (incl. tax) and eagerly ripped open the package at home to try it on my washed face. I put a few biggish dots on my moisturized cheeks, blended with my fourth finger (bcuz it is the most padded finger and tugs the least), and was very, very excited at the result. I dotted on more tint, and blended yet again. It was NATURAL! Softly flushed cheeks.
The only quibble I have is that my fourth finger took on a distinctly rosy quality...but the red came off it throughout the day. The blush stayed on all day though, and since it's a tint, I didn't feel anything on my face. I tried it as a lip tint as well, on moisturized lips (I applied lip balm for a few minutes until the lips were softened, then wiped it off). The tint worked pretty well yet again, altho I think the key to using Benetint as a liptint is to apply it only one thin coat and blend so that the tint spreads out evenly and not into the lines of the lips, and then to coat the lips with a moisturizing gloss. Two coats of the tint left my lips looking...well...way too pink for my liking.
The price sounds scary, but that bottle ought to last me for a while...like a few years! Unfortunately, it's glass...so handle it with care if you travel with it. All in all, it's my new essential beauty item.
For that "maiden aunt joins the circus" look, there's no better product than this god-awful fuschia nail polish for the cheeks. I mean, it's FUSCHIA! It's garish, it's streaky, and I hated it. Blech. And at $26 a bottle, looking bad has never been so expensive!
don't see the hype about this product. but maybe i am just not a tint person. the product was not easy to blend and leaves weird taste. and the tint is just unnatural if you don't put the right amount on it.
but, lol, i was reading this on the MUA board... apprently, benetint was invented by a request of a stripper who wants a product to make her nipples red and the colors not easily to fade away.
I was intrigued with this product and bought it. It looked good when I tried it on at the store, but when I brought it home, it either gave me too little color on my lips or too much when i put on more than one application. I do like this as a cheek color though. I just wish that it was packaged like LORAC's lip/cheek stains. It would also be nice if they had this in several shades.
this is a crappy product, all the beauty journalists who rave about it need their heads examined. It is totally impossible to blend and leaves lines and streaks on your cheeks. On the plus side the staying power is fabulous, as anyone who's tried to get it off their hands will know.
This is one of my holy grail blushes. It never fails to give me a natural flush like I would get from being out in the cold. I don't wear it all the time though because sometimes it's a pain to blend. But that's just because I'm lazy and I would rather just sweep a powder blush across my face.
I thought this was too red for my fair skin. I also couldn't seem to blend it well enough for it to look natural. I also tried it on my lips and it was way too bright.
I have been looking for natural, "flush" look, that stays all day.
I found it! BeneTint is wonderful. i found, unlike some reviews here, that it was actually very easy to blend. i didn't have any splothiness or anything like that. it went on smooth, flawless-- and really looked like a natural "blush"!!! and it stayed all day. usually, with my powder blushes, they fade after a few hours.
I think, perhaps, the reason others didn't like it, is that maybe they had dry skin.
I applied it on moisturized skin, and it went on very easily! and u only need a tiny dab, so i know that this will last me a super-long time.
well worth the money ($26), and this is something i can wear everyday for a natural look, and even add a little more for an evening look.
I was worried that it would not look good with my skintone--but it 's really the best color that i've ever put on my cheeks!
I have to join the 'No' crowd here. The concept is great, and it didn't even give me problems when applied on my oily skin. However, I have some serious, serious issues with the shade: it needs to be a bit more tawny and realistic. Fuschia just does not do it for me. Also, that stiff little brush? What is that all about? BeneFit could improve this product and grow their loyal customer base, and I'm waiting....patiently.
I like Benefit Benetint. It looks natural, and stays on for a long time. I also apply a small amount on my lips but I also apply Cherry Chapstik over it. The result is moisterized natural looking red lips! I would definitely buy this product again.
