Quick rundown review:
*Overall rating: 5.
*Price (main reason for deducting a lippie on the rating): At $28, PosieTint is definitely on the expensive side.
*Packaging: Eye candy. I am a sucker for BeneFit's packaging schemes. And with PosieTint, the bottle itself is even cuter than the outer packaging.
::My favorite things about PosieTint::
*Multitasking item: as a soon-to-be-mommy, I have been especially in the market for items that accomplish more than one thing. This is great for cheeks but can also be used for a little lip color if I want it.
*Looks great under make-up or without.
*Brightens but does not look like Barbie make-up -- the color is a little appalling at first. I thought it was too "bubble gum" or "Barbie" but it looks really great with my skin tone and does nothing but brighten and enhance.
*NOT sticky! I was surprised by this (actually, I was resistant to even try it on my hand because I feared it would be sticky and I HATE sticky)... thicker consistency than watery BeneTint and it just looked like it might be sticky. But it goes on smoothly and dries without even a hint of sticky.
*A (VERY) small amount goes a long way. Though it is expensive which is a drawback, it lasts a looong time. Since I am so fair, I only need two quick dots -- a little more if I want some extra color for the entire day.
*Moisturize or apply oil-free sunscreen before using PosieTint. Dries more evenly on well-moisturized skin.
*Use only a small amount unless you are wanting more "pop"
Love this product! Will definitely buy again.

Great natural color for lips and cheeks. Much better than Benetint which I had been using for a long time. This one is much closer to my natural coloring and you can use it with or without makeup. I have fair skin (I use BE Fairly Light) and have some natural color in my lips and cheeks. I just dab on a small amount to the apples of my cheeks and rub quickly, then I apply my BE min foundation over it. I put two dabs on my lips and use one of those cosmetic q-tips (one side is pointy and the other looks like a flattened q-tip) to blend over my lips. I find it moisturizing and even fullness-enhancing. It stays on a long time and doesn't leave that weird red ring around my lips that Benetint left. I find the creamy quality much better than Benetint, plus it is NOT sticky. If you didn't want to wear makeup (going swimming, beach, working out, etc.) you could definitely put some of this on your cheek, eyes and lips and go. Love this product more than I thought I would. Not a barbie color. Everyone will probably have to test that theory for themselves though. Get a sample before buying if the color scares you! It's less intense than it looks unless you apply layer after layer after layer.

Well, what can i say!!!! i love this product! it scared me a bit when i dabbed it on my cheek and saw this very bright color, but it blends beautifully, leaving such a natural look, it doesn't look like you are wearing make up, you just look healthy, unless you build it up of course. Very good product, would be fab for someone who hates powder blush, or likes to look natural. Will buy again!

I received this in a swap from a great MUAer, and I absolutely love this product! I have a lot of blushes, with lots of different textures from shimmery to matte to in between. Posietint is the one that most closely mimics my natural cheek color after I come in from the cold or finish a workout. This color isn't natural for everyone, but it is for me. I've been using this alot this winter. For reference, I'm a NC20-25. I'll be purchasing this again once I run out which, hopefully, will be a while!

I had a makeover and they used this on me. I was really impressed. The colour was gorgeous. I would definitely buy it but it's a but pricey.

I resisted Posietint for the longest time, mostly because I was so done with Benetint that I couldn't see myself returning to something similar. However, this is far better for me than Benetint was. This is a pinker, less red, stain. It is more easily blendable, the color does not set as fast as Benetint does. Also, the lighter color is better for my PPP skin. I love to use this on "no makeup" days when I am using just a trace of foundation or concealer, and gloss or lip balm. Today I am wearing it with a cream bronzer...I put the bronzer on and under cheek bone, and the Posietint on the apple of my cheeks. Looks gorgeous.

This is the perfect colour for my light/medium cool beige skintone. Beautiful healthy flush of colour. Makes me look like ive caught a tiny bit of sun and I can't wait to use this with a bronzer. Looks very youthful. It's replacing my bubble gum pink cream blush from Guerlain.
I like the fact that it's liquid and it won't look dry like powder. I apply a swipe over each cheek (one dip is enough for both cheeks) and blend in with a finger or foundation brush. It's just gorgeous! I haven't tried it on my lips yet, and don't really intend to.
Like the original benetint, posietint is longlasting and waterproof, however the red colour of benetint was a tad warm for me.
Brilliant you must give it a fair chance!

A beautiful, creamy pink colour. It comes a pink bottle with a white lid, and has a nail varnish applicator. It has a thick-ish formula. It comes with a small instruction leaflet. By small, I mean 3cm by 3cm. You brush three strokes of colour on the apples of your cheek and blend quickly with your fingertip. Then repeat on the other cheek. Not as easy as it sounds. It dries pretty quickly, so it's best to practise before you go out and keep some makeup remover by because it WILL stain the finger you use to blend with, if you don't get it off quickly enough. You can use it on your lips aswell, but i think it dries them out. I like the colour, it gives me a beautiful flushed glow. But take care to completely conceal any blemishes on your cheeks, otherwise they appear more prominent. It does last the whole day for me. It cost me £22.50, which was a spur of a moment thing because the MUA at the Benefit counter was so lovely (and a little desperate) that I couldn't leave without buying something. I don't regret it, but I wouldn't repurchase because of the price.

This gives such a gorgeous, long lasting tint! I'm so glad I decided to shell out the $28 for it. It lasts forever, too!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This is the PERFECT shade for my skin. It is so natural-looking, and I look really happy when I wear it (what else is blush for?!). Nice staying power. I never use on lips, as it can be a bit drying. I suggest trying it out in the store before purchasing. (Note: I've removed a lippie because it contains Quarternium-15 and carmine, a pigment made from insects. Not for vegans! However, the Skin Deep database, www.cosmeticsdatabase.com, rates it a 2, which means it is pretty safe.)
Still love it; still going to use it.

Ok, I wouldn't purchase (mine was a gift) this because it is expensive and I honestly don't think its worth the $28. I have a hard time wearing it on my cheeks as it is too...bubblegummy for my skin. It just looks "off". I should probably stick to browner pinks or plums. This works pretty well on my lips, however, when I apply a plum gloss I got from B&BW, which seems to brown it down just enough. Works well under lipstick too. It does last well. It just really doesn't work with my skin. If you really like that color of pink, go for it!
I also think the nail polish bottle is a bit of a pain. It could be worse though. I'll finish this bottle (eventually) and will not repurchase.
EDIT: This seems to work better on my lips when I put it on my finger first, then blend it around (instead of applying it directly to my lips). Still not sure if I would buy this for myself, since it doesn't really look very natural on me.

This product is amazing! I swear, Benefit must have someone with a split personality making their products because I either LOVE them(Bathina, Boi-ing, cream liner) or HATE them(B spot, Ooh La lift, etc). This is an AMAZING product. I agree it seems expensive but I know this will last a LONG time, and it has given my cheeks color like nothing else! Def highly recommend. This is replacing my NARS Orgasm and Deep Throat blushes.

I reallly wanted to love this product, but I only like it. It's mediocre, and for the price I paid, I was expecting an excellent, not mediocre product.
The colour is great, and the staying power is good as well, but my issue is the application. I have tried numerous ways and various amounts, but I cant seem to get it right! I am no dummy when it comes to make-up (or nail polish, which would apply to this brush), but every time I put this on it dries before I get a chance to blend it completely. And I am left with little neon pink, clownish looking dots on my cheeks. Its not a good look for me at all.
Also, going with something someone else said, if you have alot of redness in your face, you might want to stay away from this. I wore it on an especially irritated day and my co-worker asked me why my face was so pink. Hmmph. Thanks for that Posietint.
All in all, I will probably continue to use it to try and master it, because I love the colour and the idea of the product itself, but I wouldnt purchase it again, because its just not worth the price IMO.

loveeeeeeeeee this blush...very easy to apply and make my cheeks looks natural..only the price I thing is too high, wish they could lower the price.

For blush/lippie I find this a bit expensive.($28 at sephora) I am a drugstore girl...$5 for lippie $4 for blush. BUT this stuff is worth it. Firstly, it goes a long way since it really does last a long time, no need to reapply also only need a little bitty bit. So I really do think it is worth the extra dollars. I used to use the regular benetint but it was to dark/harsh/almost neon on my somewhat pale skin. This seems a bit bright but apply lightly and you get a gorgeous, natural pink (no other word to describe it, it is simply PINK) that lasts and lasts. I mostly use on my lips, i think it looks natural, as if i have naturally darker lips. add another layer for a more obvious, glam night-time effect. Looks great on as blush too. For me...and a lot of paler spectrum ladies, i think this is eons above regular benitint. I will always have a bottle.

I really love the color of this blush. I have very pale skin (for most brands, I am too pale to find a foundation light enough) with white blonde hair and pink undertones to my skin. One issue I've always had is that I love my natural pink blush, but when I put on foundation, it covers it up. This product matches my natural blush perfectly, resulting in a simple, pretty no make-up look. I don't have any problems with blending like others have mentioned, but I do tend to put my make-up over slightly damp skin, so that might help. This is my winter HG, as Orgasm and Tarte Tickled Peach are my summer HG's, when I have a tiny bit of color.

i love this stuff!!!..it is the most beautiful pink shade. and it really does stain ur lips. looks great on cheeks too very natural im more of a bronzer girl though..the downside is it could get dry if you dont no moisturize lips..put a layer of chapstick on before and after you apply this product or your lips will dry/peel...overall i love this product, the packaging is more cute then convenient. and its kind of expensive at 28 dollars. i wonder how long it will last me. usually i only have to apply it 2 times a day.

I switched to this product from Smashbox's O-Glow - because I wanted a nice pink flush and the O-Glow clearly wasn't doing it for me. I'm really happy about the switch as I like Posie-tint a lot. I had used the orginal Benetint before and was really impressed by it and the quality of Posietint is almost on bar. It is quite pigmented so it is important to start out with a small amount and build from there. I didn't give it five lippies because I find unlike the Benetint which blends amazingly the Posietint doesn't blend quite as well - it seems to dry faster then i can blend it and sometimes the dots that i put on my face are still somewhat present - it's not something that is noticable to anyone but me - but since i only do my makeup for myself it is a detraction from the prouct - other than that the packaging is cute which is what i expect from Benefit.

intimidating at first (looks nearly fluro on the brush) but brings a natural flushed flowery pink to my cheeks and a bright pinkish ting to my lips. the first time i used it, i followed the instructions and used the brush to paint three dots on my cheeks and blend~~ and i ended up looking like a doll, so a little goes a long way. its very pigmented so now i just swipe a small amount of the product off the brush and blend onto the apples of my cheeks, u have to be quick to avoid streaking cause it dries pretty fast. stays on for most of the day, fades a little by night but i have oily skin anyway. the packaging is really cute~~ like a nailpolish bottle and shiny metallic pink. the instruction pamphlet is pink and cute as well <3 i really like this tint (my first tint btw), now i want to try benetint as well

i love this! i previously used benetint which i liked. i like this a little better as it is creamy in comparison. i just put three little dots on the apples of my cheeks and blend in. it gives a nice pink color. sometimes i put a little dandelion on top then finish it off with be's mineral veil.
