Review of BeneFit Cosmetics Cha Cha Tint by abfabjeanius
I decided to give this a whirl, since I've been a user of Benetint and Posietint previously. Cha Cha Tint also comes in a nailpolish-esque bottle with the nailpolish-brush applicator thingy.
COLOR: Reddish-coral, sort of akin to BeneFit's Coralista box powder. On my light golden skin, it gives a really nice, natural peachy-coral glow. However, on my lips, it applies unevenly and also pulls a weird orangey-red color that is not cute.
APPLICATION: BeneFit recommends doing 3 stripes along the cheeks and blending in with fingertips. However, if you don't have the reflex skills of a superhero, this stuff will dry *fast* and leave little dots where the dried bits didn't blend properly. I find it better to dab some onto my fingertips with the brush, then use that to blend onto the apples of the cheeks. Although this method stains the fingertips more, it at least will help the product to blend evenly onto the face.
OTHER TIPS: This applies best over a very light foundation, or on bare skin. Otherwise, all that fast blending will sort of wipe off any heavy foundation or concealer application. I do find that applying Cha Cha Tint on bare skin, then lightly applying a product like BeneFit's Some Kind-A-Gorgeous (or other light foundation/TM), yields the most natural effect. It really gives that "glow from within" look. I find it is very long-lasting, even on my combination skin.
Purchased this for $28USD. Overall, quite pleased with this product and think it would work for a variety of skintones.
