Over 50 here: I reviewed this product negatively the first time around, but have decided that as a blush (not as lip tint) it is very good if one isn't planning on wearing foundation and "the works." Wish Bonne Bell would bring back their much more reasonably priced gel blushes (came in a small tubes) that were available in the late 70s/early 80s. Benetint is really wa-a-ay too expensive, but these days they can ask for the money because there's no similar product out there, really.
I had trouble getting this to work for me. I don't know if it was the technique or what, but a) it was pretty bright pink, and b) I couldn't get it blended, so it looked streaky. The nail polish brush wasn't helpful at all, and I had a terrible time with this product. Plus, it was hard to remove.
hi everyone. I have this and I like it a lot. I broke the lid on a bottle and went to the drug store and purchased one of those travel plastic bottles - it had an eye dropper lid...the bottle was similar to the size of the Benetint bottle - bit smaller. I found from this that I could continue to refill this bottle with my Benetint - works GREAT...it lets out a drop at a time without spilling a drop. I mention this because several posts complain regarding the packaging. After a bit of practice you will not be disappointed with this product. The customer service is wonderful too. Best if used on a moisturized face (either with a light foundation or a light moisturizer).
There's a learning curve with this one. I know it's super-popular, but I had some trouble getting it to work right for me. The color wasn't right for my skin tone, which is pretty fair, and getting it to look right without being streaky was difficult.
I know I am crazy, but I buy this over and over again.
I am very pale and this is the most natural, and longest lasting blush I ever found in my life.
I buy this as gifts for my friends and relatives, and they love it.
The BEST blush! continued >>
I bought the original & the balm, and was disappointed both times. I'll stick with Delux Tintsticks. This stuff was drying, and low on color.
I have to use it alot to see on my yellow toned(Asian) skin. It dries fast ,so doesn't give enough time to spread evenly. I prefer Benefit "Cheekies" .
I got this from a nice MUA swapper and was excited in trying this. The blush has a very ncie rosewater scent and I adore the scent! But when it comes to the colour, it doesn't show out in my medium skin. And the stain got onto my finger instead of my cheeks. Compared to cheekhue, I would recommand using MAC cheekhue. This goes out of my cosmetics drawer!
The ingredients are great but unfortunately this is hard to apply and much to fushia for fair skin.
Reading your reviews, I got convinced that I am currently too much suntanned to wear it. It is hardly noticeable: I have always to add a bit of powder blush, and on my lips it disappears. I shall try it again in wintertime (when I am quite pale). In any case, Lancome had somethins similar which, even if it was harder to apply, was wonderful also for suntanned people (or at least on a the suntanned version of me...).
