I decided to check out Posie tint, after reading rave reviews for Benetint, and thought that the Posie option would suit my darker skin. Application of this product couldnt be easier, and I am amazed by its staying power! and after a drunken night out (which resulted in me going straight to bed with a faceful of make-up) the Posie tint was the only product that was still on my face, looking just as good as when I had applied it!
The cost is fairly price at £22.50, but according to the lwoman who served me, Posie tint lasts roughly a year.
Overall this is one item that I really couldnt go without, and i will continue to buy in the future.

I remembered how when Benetint was first released, it received rave reviews from various beauty magazines. I went straight to a Benefit counter but I was sorely dissapointed. So when I received this as a gift, I didn't have high hopes for it. However, this has turned out to be the prettiest pink blush I have EVER used. It's a subtle, baby pink that makes my cheeks look naturally rosy :) Not mauve-y, not rose-y, not fuschia, not hot, bright pink etc. Just the perfect pop of pink on my fair-medium skin! It does not show up very well on my lips but I can see the slightest hint of pink if I do put it on there.
Posietint (like Benetint) has to blended in very quickly as it dries really fast. So I brush two strokes (you can do less/more) on one side, blend in it quickly with my fingers and then only start on the other side. Otherwise, I resemble a cat with two pink whiskers :p The texture is great too as it doesn't leave a creamy shine but is just matte so it really looks as if you're not wearing any blush. I guess it's more of a cheek/lip stain :) Oh, and the colour stays on the whole day too!
It's a bonus the bottle is super cute :)
FYI, I'm wearing this blush/stain in my profile picture and you can see how the pink is really natural!

I was turned on to this tint by the Prescriptive MA at my local Macy's (I was there to return a couple of lipsticks that went MIA after an hour of wear). I explained what I wanted -- something natural that would last -- and she sent me to the BeneFit counter. When I saw the cotton candy color of the Posie Tint, I was skeptical, but the MA insisted it would be better for my skin tone than the reddish tint. She only applied it to my lips (I have yet to try it on my cheeks, I'm a slave to Lorac's blush), and it looked very pretty, though not exactly natural. Once it settled, though, it reminded me of that episode of SATC, where Harry tells Charlotte that he fantasizes about her perfect, pink lips. Well, now I have them too...though I should mention that lip balm or gloss is still a must (I can't stand the feel of completely bare lips during the day).
UPDATE: This ended up going back to the BeneFit counter. I couldn't stand the dry feeling on my lips, and was constantly applying lip balm. Wasn't worth the effort.

I really love this stuff. It's the first stain I've ever used, and once I got the hang of applying it, I liked it much better. A little goes a long way, and like others said, you must blend immediately. It's a very pretty, girly pink, easy to wear everyday. I have yet to layer it with other blushes or highlighters, so I'll have to experiment.

I use this in my magic combo of Moon beam and posietint with Dandelion on top. This give the best pink colour with the perfect amount of highlight and will last all day without fail. I used to use Benetint in this combo but as it is more red, sometimes my cheeks would come out too bright/red although it still was lovely. Using posietint this way give a slightly softer look which I think is more wearable for every day but could be built up as well. In using these two liquids, Dandelion has something to grab onto which intensifies a color which would normally not show up on me very well...highly recommend. I am also going to try Coralista over these two as that is lovely color would be a slightly warmer option as well...love these products and always come back to them. Great price as this amount will last you ages.

I found this a bit hard to get used to after mastering Benetint. It's creamier and IMO a bit harder to blend evenly than Benetint. You really need to blend immediately, without delay, else you get an uneven tint. It's also very, very pink and pigmented. I use the same technique as I do with Benetint - spray a make-up sponge with MAC Fix+, apply three lines on the apple of my cheek and blend in circular motions with the moist sponge. It really is important to blend immediately with this one. I also need a powder over the top to tone down the candy pink. With careful application, this product is as good as the wonderful Benetint and has the same pleasing endurance as its predecessor.

The application with the brush to the lips tickles! But the color factor is great! however the pink on the cheek is a bit much for a pale person like me. This works great for lips, apply, mush and top off with clear gloss. I would recommend the BEnetint for the cheeks.

I love this color and it's staying power! I have been using this EVERYDAY on cheeks and lips since I got it 3 months ago. It takes a little while to get your routine down and get the right depth that you want. If you like pink then this is it if you don't like pink then don't bother. It tingles a little bit while it is setting. The applicator is kind of tricky to get use to and the price is a bit high, but a little does go a long way so I guess that makes up for the price. I always use this under a gloss as some people have said it is drying, but I can't go with dry non gloss lips anyway.

The first time I picked up Posietint in Sephora, I put it right back down. It was pepto bismol pink!!! Then I read and watched a few reviews, and decided to give it a try. I love Benetint after all. :)
I like Posietint but I think it takes some getting used to if you are used to Benetint. It is a bit thicker, so it's different to blend than Benetint.
I love the color, once blended it is a light light pink. Just a natural blush for your cheeks. I prefer to use stains for work as I tend to feel grimey and hate having lots of stuff on. Just a little powder and Posietint/Benetint and some eyeliner and that's it!
Benefit is my only expierence with stains, but I'd like to try some different ones. Honestly, though, I don't think I'm ever going to run out of these two products! Hehe!

I always think the bottle is too big. Honestly, I've only used 5ml when I put it on everyday for 3 months. I wish they had smaller bottles available. Overall, this is an excellent blush and lip stain. I love it, more than benetint.

Having been a long-time fan of the original BeneTint, I was beyond thrilled when its cute, pink baby sister, PosieTint, was released.
I actually much prefer this to BeneTint. Like the original, this is a liquid tint that comes in a little glass bottle with a brush applicator. However, while BeneTint is a heavily-fragranced, watery liquid with a strong, vampish red colour, PosieTint is much more subtle. It goes on in silky, candy-pink drops and just like BeneTint, a little goes a very long way.
Personally, I find PosieTint a lot more versatile than its predecessor -- the colour is so sweet and natural that it is far more buildable, plus there's a lot more room for error. It also is kinder to the lips than BeneTint, leaving them both delicately tinted and soft.
This is a brilliant, use-every-day product that will perk up your complexion and can be tailored to suit most occasions. Of course, something that looks and works so perfectly has to have a catch, and it's this: the price really isn't reasonable for such a tiny bottle. As it's such a great, every day item for your make-up bag, in my experience it does not last long enough to justify the price tag. The way the packaging is designed will also prevent you from getting at every last drop, which is a real pity because you really will want to! 4-lippies for the lack of value for money; otherwise, this is a HG product and a staple for any collection.

The packaging of this product makes it kind of a hassle to put on when in a rush in the morning. It comes out as a really scary bright bright hot pink, but once blended, disappears into a faint pink glow.
I don't like how it has a metallic, unrealistic pink on my skin (NC35), but the end result looks a bit liek MAC's Petticoat MSF, and a lot of people seem to like that, so I think it's just a personal opinion here.

Posietint is my first liquid blush, and as such it has been quite difficult learning how to use. However, my efforts have paid off as this blush provides a very natural looking glow. Also, it stays on all day. My skin is very pale, so I believe the original Benetint may have been too dark for me to wear. This provides just the right amount of color. So far, Posietint and Lemon Aid have been my favorite products from Benefit.

Expensive but worth it! Totally the cutest freshest color. Makes you look young and vibrant.. looove it. Only con is it's hard to get the color to be right without being too bright. you definitely have to layer it on.

Love this product. makes my skin appear really glowy and healthy without being patchy! ive had troubles with blushers before being too thick and making my skin look dirty but this does not at all..on my second bottle just now. i may try a powder blush such as chanel jc to see what that is like but this is one of my favs

I have been looking for a beautiful pink flush stain for years and have tried every stain out there to achieve this look. This stain instantly brightens up your face but is not the obvious dark red or fuschia color that other stains leave behind. I only use this for my lips but it's a great base under clear gloss or to make any other lipstick/lipgloss more rosy in color. My HG stain for sure!

I have to say I love this stuff. I didn't think I would at first as I was scared by how neon pink it is. And I have used the regular BeneTint before with mixed results. But this gives me an amzing natural flush that stays all day long. Its expensive but I can tell it will last forever. Sold!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Tan Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Great stuff! One of the products I hate to run out of. Even on tan skin, it gives a nice natural, flush/healthy glow to your skin. (pic #5- is 2 coats ;1coat is more natural, at least on me)
It lasts all day, even when swimming. I use a clean lip gloss wand because it'll stain your fingers.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I love this, It's Barbie pink and lasts all day long, come rain or shine. Quite pricey but lasts ages and you only need a small amount. You need to blend in very quickly because it's more of a cheek stain.
The metallic paint on the packaging does scratch a little which is dissapointing.

This is very expensive blush but it's very very nice blush. I love this pink tone. It's very natural and last long all day. My face always pale like a piece of paper, so when i apply this it's look really good and not too much.
