This has been a staple product for me for years! I don't think there is another tint on the market that can beat it. It's always a bad day when I run out. I use a few drops on my cheeks and soak my lips with it and am set to go. It's a tint, so it doesn't stay bright for 6 hours straight or anything, but the color lingers well and it's so easy to refresh. I always get more compliments when I use it- people say I look "brighter!"
I can not live without benetint! It is my absolute must have. I use it every single day after foundation. It looks great on my skin and I love the smell. The best way to use this as a blush is to use a blush brush to blend it. Do not use fingers like the directions tell you or you will end up looking blotchy pink. I put three lines on my cheekbone and quickly blend it with a blush brush. It stays put all day and the best part about it that it has a natural look to it...I dont FEEL or look like I am wearing blush..looks like a nice natural flush
I love Benefit products, but this one isn't doing it for me. As a cheek stain, it's difficult to blend. The colour is too intense on me even tho I apply only a little (Mac NC20). However, I do use it everyday as a lip stain. It does look natural. But tbh, I just want to use up this product so I don't waste it.
About me: NW10-15 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
This made a beautiful lip stain. However, it never looked natural on my cheeks. The closet application method I came to creating a naturally flushed cheek was to take the brush applicator and put a teeny tiny dot on my counter and then quickly swirl it up in my MAC 109 brush and swirl onto the apples of my cheeks. But I think this product is better suited for people who medium to dark skin tones, because it always just seemed like "too much" and not blended on the edges enough for my fair complexion. Beautiful product though. Looking forward to trying Posie Tint.
I got a small bottle of this from Sephora and usually use it under a powder blush. I like the color, it goes on well and feels light though it doesn't really stay on as long as I'd expect. It feels comparable to some powder blushes. I wouldn't pay full price for it personally, though I if it's a free gift it's nice.
I like Benetint but I guess I could say I've tried better lip and cheek tints (such as Tony Moly--a Korean brand). The best thing about this tint is that it's not irritating to the skin. Other tints tend to make my cheek feel as it it was on fire or something.
I got this with my Benefit Sugarlicious kit and I won't be re-purchasing only because it's a tad too expensive to get the full-sized bottle. Tony Moly has better ones at a cheaper price (below $10).
This remains my HG blush no matter the season. I'm a MAC NC45 and it works equally well in summer when I [thankfully] have a tan and in the winter when my color has started to fade and make me look a bit ashy (a problem for many brown girls). It's hard to find products that work during both seasons but this does. You have to work very quickly to blend it out before it starts to dry or you can end up with streaks but it will last all day-even on hot summer days when you've been sweating. I don't use it as a lip stain, though-it makes lips taste funny and will affect everything you eat and drink so I'd avoid that. I took one star off for the packaging because I think it would be better in a plastic bottle than a glass one, since most women probably keep this in their purses and bathrooms and glass isn't a good idea for either environment.
I bought this product after hearing so much about Benefit's stains, and was expecting it to be a mind-blowing purchase. Let me tell you, mind-blowing isn't the phrase I would use to describe it. It is simply mediocre. As a cheek stain, I could barely tell there was any enhanced color on my cheeks after applying it. It's also not a very practical or appealing way to apply blush, and if anything, it just makes your cheeks look blotchy. I do love it as a lip stain. You can apply one layer and get a really sheer hint of color, or you can apply multiple layers (allow to dry between layers) and build it up to a more intense rose tint. Unlike most lip stains, it did not dry out my lips at all and the product has a lovely smell to it. Would I purchase it again? Probably not. It's lovely, but there are many lip stains at the drugstore that I'm sure work just as well. It's not worth the price, and I would certainly not recommend using this on your cheeks.
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.
