I love this product, but believe there is room for major improvement. The color's beautiful, the packaging is cute, and it's very versatile. However, the packaging is impratical, the applicator is silly (and tickly, or is that just me?) and the design on the bottle smudges off within days, making a new product look like you'd had it rolling around in your purse for years. I would be much more pleased with this product if Benefit redesigned the packaging.
I got this product as a birthday present from my roomies!
I've never really wanted this product because I thought it would somehow clash with my warm skin tone. It doesn't! Yay! It makes your lips so pink and youthful. Not too drying but it's best to top it off with a gloss or lip balm.
OK, I must confess I bought this product because I fell in love with the cute bottle...
But it's a very good product, too. It delivers the right shade of colour (if you work it well of course), it won't transfer or smudge, and it's easy to apply... if you're swift-handed of course.
This is because the product is really liquid and it dries super-quickly on your skin, so you have to apply it as soon as you've slicked the brush, or it will dry and leave gracious pink stripes on your cheeks instead of a glowy, "bonne mine" look.
One only con: it comes with a brush that you must forcedly pass on your cheek, day after day, so it will gather bacteria all along the process. I'm not sure how safe the product is going to be in the long run.
Only used this as a cheek stain/blush. Color shows up pretty strongly on my skin (although I am fair). I have one of the minis, which I think contains a more generous amount of product than it seems. I found I could only blend it with fingers.
-long lasting (10+ hours on my skin)
-between a creamy and liquid consistency (not watery like benetint)
-can be worn as a very light hint of color or worn as a stronger pastel pink
-must work quickly, but blends easily and does not streak
-works really well as it's own color and as a base color for blushes that aren't as long wearing. Shows up even with highlighter over it.
-doesn't highlight my pores/acne scars even when worn on bare face
-great for hot and humid weather
-applicator is awful and awkward
-can be slightly blotchy if not applied evenly or quickly. Also, if building for coverage, I had to wait for each layer to dry completely before adding another layer or it looked REALLY blotchy.
-when I did mess up, the same thing that makes it long wearing makes it a pain to remove if I needed to redo my makeup to get rid of the blotchiness. Not ideal if in a rush.
I like the color after 3 layers. Or after layering on top of a darker tint. I just never get what I expect from a Benefit product but I keep buying coz I get lured by the cute packaging and names. Anyway, I only got the smaller tube (came from a kit) so I could try different products with minimal commitment.
I have the smaller version of this it came in one of the makeup sets. I really like the shade, it's more of a barbie/girly pink. However, I prefer the benetint also the price of the benefit tints are just way too over priced!
I like it. Perfect color for my cheeks, I'm pretty fair and it just gives a natural looking flush. Lasts all day. Doesn't do much for my lips though. My lips are pretty pink so when I put it on you can't really tell I've done anything. I would probably repurchase but it is kind of expensive.
This is an awesome tint! the colour is amazing. I tried it on a cotton bud in store, but find when i apply it directly to my lips it gives a much more striking colour! and its a buildable colour.
I find it is much easier than Benetint to apply to the cheeks (as it is a gel finish and doesn't dry as fast).
This is also really good to just use as a base to your lipstick to make it last longer.
Hahahah So I was applying this on my cheeks in the morning and my boyfriend asked me why I was putting nail polish on my face.
Anyway I love Benefit's tint line, they're all great.
Posietint is great but I like Benetint better just because it's the exact color of my natural flush.
I received a sample of this in a swap. It's a cool concept.. but in order to get any color on my lips, I have to layer and layer and layer. And forget about cheeks. It blends away into nothing!
