I don't wear lipstick because it's a bit too high maintenance for me. I wanted something for my lips that would be easy and have some staying power. This is it, plus it doubles as a cheek stain. If you want a subtle hint of color be careful not to apply too much as it tends to look brighter after it sets in. I have started applying this under my tinted moisturizer and powder and find that it's the most natural way to wear it. I like that it does not have a shimmer or sheen to it. I made the mistake of trying to put it on after powder and it will completely remove anything underneath it. Also, If you have any imperfection where it is being applied like a patch of dry skin or a healing blemish it tends to "stick" to the spot and make it look like it's unevenly applied. Be careful with that. Otherwise, it is a great product and a little goes a long way so it's a good value in my opinion.
I love this tint so much it's insane.
I'm a neutral skinned PPP (with the TINIEST leanings towards warm), and oranges tend to overwhelm my features and make me look...well...weird. So when I opened up this bottle and saw the NEON orange product, I immediately assumed I would have to return it. But I decided to try it on just to see.
And oh. My. GOD. This is so pretty on me I can't even believe it. It turns into a gorgeous coral colour on my lips, and when I use it on my cheeks it gives me this beautiful "lit from within" kind of glow. I do have to be very careful with the amount that I use because it's highly concentrated in it's gel-like formula, but I consider that a bonus as I don't have to use very much of it. Speaking of the formula, it's actually my favourite that I have ever worked with in a stain. It's not as watery as Benetint (which I honestly WISH came in this formula because then it would be my HG), and it doesn't dry as quickly as other stains, so I have some time to work with it before it sets.
For my lips, I put a tiny dab directly on the lip and then work it in with my pinkie. I only need one coat of it for perfect, natural coral lips. (Any more than this, however, and it becomes WAY too orange for a neutral skinned girl like me).
For my cheeks, I put a small amount on my finger tips, and then rub them onto my cheeks gently, making sure not to pull my hand away while I'm blending it in (as I hear this can cause patchy colouring). I tend to use this UNDER my mineral foundation, because I don't know how the liquid would blend on top of a powder, so I use a little more than usual to make it show through the foundation, and it just looks SO pretty.
The best part of the benefit stains, though, is their staying power. I said this with Benetint, and I will say it with Cha Cha Tint: This lasts FOREVER. I can put it on and forget about it for at LEAST 6-8 hours, and that's with me eating oily Italian food.
If you're a lazy beauty like me, or you prefer to just put on makeup and forget about it, I highly recommend trying the Benefit brand stains.
I absolutely love this product! I got a sample size and I've never looked into the mirror and felt so sun kissed. My favorite look is tan skin and reddish/burnt cheeks. This by far does the trick. It makes my face lively and lifted. Im always smiling and this just lights me up. I do find that while i apply it, it removes the makeup underneath but i do not mind because that allows my few freckles that go across my nose and adds to the beachy look. Love this!!
This is a gorgeous coral stain on my (quite yellow toned) NC10-15 skin. Not overly orange or pink. It's easy to blend (I just tap it on with my fingertips), and is very pretty on both cheeks and lips. It's thicker in consistency than BeneTint, so I don't find it settles into the lines on my lips as badly. It wears like iron on the cheeks, and it pretty impressive on the lips too, without being drying. It's easy to wear subtly, or build up for more intense color.
You may see that I have previously reviewed the Benefit Coralista Blusher and said that it is more of a shimmer than a blush as the colour is very faint. Well... if you apply a small amount (less is definitely better) of cha cha tint to the back of your hand use a small blusher brush to pick up some product and dab this into the Coralista and apply to your cheeks, not only do you get the highlight but you get a gorgeous coral/peach colour blush which lasts all day. The other way is to use your fingers to smudge onto the apple of your cheeks and immediately apply Coralista (while it is still wet) and you get the same effect! I just worry that I would get the other everywhere this way!!
The good thing with Cha Cha tint is that you can also build it up and wear it on its own or for a more sun kissed look apply bronzer then use coralista over the cheeks!
I haven't tried as a lip tint but when I do, I will update my review!
I originally wanted a lipstain and I just so happen to get a sample size of the benetint in my ipsy glam bag. I was really happy about it but the benetint doesn't last long on the lips at all so I thought the cha cha tint would be similar. It's a pinky peach colour, really pretty on the lips. The formula isn't watery like the benetint so I think that is the reason why it stays on way longer. It looks creamy and if you leave it in on one spot to long it will stain the area its in. I quite like that factor about it. I also have the posie tint and it is also as great and same formula too.
Cha Cha Tint is a great color for me (NC15, brown eyes, reddish brown hair). It is pinky orange and lasts all day. You do need to work fast with it as it is a stain. My second favorite blush is MAC Something Special, however, it doesn't last as long as Cha Cha Tint.
I have ton of products from benefit , and I see those different kinds of tint every time I went to sephora but somehow I wasnt intrested in those and never tried them out... Yesterday when I was killing time in sephora, I walked to benefit section and was trying everything out there, and when I finally put the chachatint on my cheek. I'm lik OMG!!! I can't believe I never tried them!!!! It is kinda pricy, but I have to have it. So I grabbed one and wales to the cashier , but I found a better deal while waiting in line. Sephora has a deluxe sample set for all the tint (posietint, sunbeam,chachatint). It's 0.13 oz of each and it's $17. The regular bottle is 0.42 oz , for $30. If you do some math. Buy 4 of the sample sets, U get 0.52oz of each tint for $68, if u buy full size it's gonna be $90. And you only get 0.42oz per bottle. So after I got home and I get on my phone ordered another 3 packs of the sets. Lol!!!!
I've heard things about Benetint from my friends and I was so excited to get it! So the other day, I went to Ulta to sample Benetint, Posietint, and Cha Cha tint. I didn't think much about Posietint and Cha cha tint, but Benetint barely showed up on my skin. I'm a very tan Asian, and Cha Cha tint was the only one that looked great and bright. The lady at the counter recomended me to try Cha Cha tint or Benetint, but "you should definitely get the coral one" (as in Cha Cha Tint). Of course, I picked up Cha Cha Tint. I am proud to say -I love it! It stays on all day, on both my cheeks and lips and looks so natural! Although it is a little pricey, it is definitely worth it. Therefore, I will repurchase.
I don't know about "stain..." Compared to others I've tried and BeneTint original, this is more of a long-wearing liquid base.
If you've read any of my other reviews, you know I am an orange person, and I bought this after trying on my hand in Sephora and being very excited about the color. It looked just like the rosier places on my hand, which is what I look for in a staple blush.
I think it may be best for me in winter, as right now I have the good old summer burntan, and this delicate shade is lost on my face. I am probably a full on Medium level right now, but I go beyond the pale (ha!) when the Alabama November monsoon season hits and lasts until March.
This color is really nice, IMO, for apricot redheads or those pretending to be apricot redheads (and copper heads, henna heads or those with freckles, for that matter). Those hair and skin combos can be hard to compliment in a natural way without looking sunburned or feverish. I find, from my on-hand experience in the store, that it layered nicely under sheer powder and a little pop of a brighter powder blush or highlighter. I'm telling y'all, my hand was gorgeous! I've used BeneTint in more ash blonde-haired days the same way, and I think Cha Cha is a nice alternative if the deep red rose pink is not for you.
