I actually like this product more than Benefit's Benetint - but maybe because I got this product first. I like the rollerball format, it is easier to carry around and apply. I don't use it as a blush but as a lip stain. I like the rosy colour, I find it really beautiful and natural - not a hot vibrant fuchsia like many stains. It is drying so you better use a lip balm with it, and it doesn't last forever, but since it's easy to transport and apply that's not the biggest deal .

I'm a complete Benetint devotee, but am utterly open minded to new products. This is in a roller ball format so far better than the nail varnish-type bottle of Benefit...or so I thought. The colour, as far as I can tell, looks very similar, but I'll put them both together in natural light tonight and do a comparison. This doesn't blend as well as the Benefit version, plus it dries a lot quicker so you have to blend it very fast before it dries a streak a across your cheek. Although the roller ball is slightly easier to apply, and more compact to carry around in your handbag, I think you have a lot less control with it. I suppose with the nail varnish application you can put less on too, whereas with the roller ball you kinda just hope for the best. The leaflet inside suggests you put a "circle" onto the apple of the cheek but if you do it this way it is FAR too much. Once blended it gives good colour payoff with an intense pop of berry colour. The Benetint has more of a rosy blush to it, whereas this has more of a berry-ish stain. I always, always end up toning the colour down with some more of my mineral foundation, as it's too much. I was hoping for a good alternative to my Benetint, but I've not got it in this. Wouldn't buy again. Just goes to show that sometimes the original IS best.
