I hate the packaging, but love the product. I do not like that it's in a glass container, makes it difficult to take with you for touch-ups, and I do not apply it as a blush with the nail polish applicator as it dries very fast and can look streaky that way. I find if you tilt the bottle and use your fingers, while working very quickly it's beautiful and lasts all day. I love it as a lip stain and find it looks and stays better when you put on two coats of it. It takes practice to master this product but when you do it's well worth it. i will repurchase.
I am in love with this product. This is the most natural looking flush you will find - easy to use, buildable, and lasts all day. Long-lasting is probably the most important blush criteria for me because I use it to look more awake and fresh - as the day goes on, you get more tired, but your face is still looking just as perky!
The key to this product is finding a good application routine. Benefit recommends applying three dabs to your cheeks and rubbing it in, but this can look spotty if you aren't quick enough.
Personally, I have found the best method is to buy a dark-bristled flat foundation brush, run the benetint brush and wand over the last 3-5 cm of the foundation brush and then swirl on the apples of your cheeks and afterward lightly dab the brush up your cheekbones. This makes it mess free, precise and well-blended. No stained fingers and no spots!
Another bonus: the bottle lasts about 8 months for me, so it really isn't that pricy.
This product is way too expensive. That said, I love it. I have had NO problems with it causing dryness or a rash on my cheeks or lips, even though I have super sensitive skin. The rose fragrance is delightful. The color is perfect. It lasts all day on my cheeks. I just wish it lasted longer on my lips. The packaging isn't convenient to carry around in my purse for touch ups during the day. If the bottle opens and it spills, it will ruin my purse AND I'd be out of a lot of money! Other than that, I highly recommend Benetint and I will definitely be buying it again in the future.
I really like this product. First thing I want to say, is that it took me a while to learn how to use it right on the cheeks - it's somehow hard to blend, because it stains - when it's there, it's there, so you'll have to blend it right the first time.
I usually use this as a lipstain, and it works wonders for me. It doesn't dry out my usually dry lips, and it lasts a long time.
I wouldn't recommend this to someone who is very knew to makeup, since it can be tricky to use.
This is my favorite product in my makeup bag. It's a dual cheek stain and lip color, and when it's blended correctly, it looks natural and flawless. It lasts for a long time and smells divine. I will not go back to a traditional powder blush and as a lip stain, it's a fabulous base, especially if I'm going to a dinner where I will be using a napkin/drinking wine, etc.
It's a very pretty product however every time I apply it I feel like it's sucking all the moisture out of my lips and my cheeks. After about half an hour my lips start to crack and my cheeks feel tight and irritated. If only it contained a bit less alchohol!
I have a love hate relationship with this product. here are the pros and cons in my opinion
Suits all skin tones
comes with a great applicator
can be used as a lip color and a blush color
looks natural on the the skin, its great for that no make up look
smells like roses
Too expensive, if you plan on using this just as a lipstain youre better off looking elsewhere. Cover girl or Maybelline make some okay ones for waayyy cheaper.
Like most lipstains, this will fade quickly, be prepared for many reapplications throughout the day.
with that being said, I would still repurchase this product because some of my clients request it often. It really is a nice product but im sure you can find something better for a lot less money.
My ratings *might* seem harsh and like I don't like the product. I do like it however! The color, I feel, is awesome. And pretty long lasting. But there are a couple of quirks for me. Sometimes I end up with an uneven look from cheek to cheek (probably a user error). I'd recommend really rubbing it in as soon as you brush the product onto your face, because otherwise it may stain in a blotchy way. The other thing I don't like (and this is odd) is that when I'm using the nail-polish-like-wand for my lips,it tickles my lips to no end!! It's not a good feeling for me! I wonder if others get that reaction. It's a bit pricey, so I'd only get it again if I had another deal going on.
Benefit is generally a mostly miss with a few hits type of brand for me. I love the packaging on many of the products but I'm not always happy with the quality and therefore I rarely bother with items in their line. However, the benetint makes my product top 10 list. If I were forced to own only one lip product forever, I would choose bentint. The reason I enjoy this product so much is that it truly functions well on both lips and cheeks. The finish is satin, instead of being fully matte like Becca beach tints. The formula is also much less drying than Becca beach tints on lip areas. The color is able to be layered for more intensity if one chooses and blends very nicely on my cheeks. I get a good 4-6 hour wear time with the product and it just feels comfortable and looks good. It has to be patted on my lips though as simply rubbing seems to make the product disappear. One of the most convenient and versatile products I have ever used and there's nothing irritating or drying about it. I like the rose scent, it is pleasant and not overpowering nor does it smell artificial.
I love this product! It gives you that natural flush of color not too overpowdering! This product is great because it works well on all skin tones
Benetint is just so easy to throw on and the best thing is you can use it as a liptint as well! so this has be a staple in my travel bag ever since I got it!
The only con is the price. Although the sample size has lasted me forever, the full size costs about 35 dollars.
Despite that I will definitely repurchase this again when I run out.
