Love it! This gives me such a healthy glow. I will NEVER use powder blush again! I highly recommend.

As a lot of people here say, this IS an alternative to BeneTint. I thought I'd give this a try because I don't get BeneFit products where I live :( And although it isn't as impeccable as BeneTint, it certainly is a worthy competitor! It isn't as good as BeneTint as a cheek stain (although it's still pretty darn good) but in my opinion, it beats BeneTint as a lip stain. This stuff actually stays on your lips!
Overall, very pretty! A cheaper alternative to BeneTint (with better packaging..hehe)

I use it as a cheek stain and it gives me a very healthy glow, makes me look like I'm wearing absolutely NO make-up, which is great for school. Its easy to carry around as well. My lips are naturally pink (lucky me!) so on my lips, this gives my lips a natural kind of bitten look. But otherwise, the formula, texture and colour of this lip and cheek stain is GREAT for all skin colours and every girl on the go must have this product in her purse.

I like this a lot, but I don't use it everyday. I don't like it as a lip tint, it tastes funny, it looks fake, and it doesn't stay on very long. BUT as a cheek stain it's pretty cool. It looks very natural. When I wear this people are always asking me if I'm wearing blush or if my cheeks are just naturally rosy and I always tell them they're just naturally like that! It might be a little too runny, but it goes on pretty easily, and for me it stays on all day and I usually don't wear any foundation or anything. I found that if I do use foundation, if I use powder foundation then I have to put the tint on first and put the powder on top. I don't like using it with liquid foundation because it just kind of all smears together and doesn't work. If I'm using liquid foundation, then I just use powder blush. I noticed that if it's warm outside (or inside) my cheeks start feeling really hot like they can't breath, and I don't like that, so I don't wear it if it's going to be warm. And it also makes my cheeks feel a little bit sticky. Another thing I don't like about it is that after a few uses when I screwed the cap back on some of the blush started squirting out, wasting some of the product. I don't use it very often so it's lasting me a pretty long time. And I don't use very much when I do use it, only one dip for both cheeks. So...
-Pretty easy to apply
-Works well under powder foundation or alone
-Stays on all day
-A little goes a long way
-A tiny bit too runny
-Makes my cheeks hot in warm weather
-Makes my cheeks feel a little sticky
-Doesn't work too well with liquid foundation
-Product squirts out of cap when closed

I Like it , not something i reach to everyday but it does what it says.
I actually think its a little too liquidy for the consistency, i think a more thicker liquid would make it go on more/better. Since its so liquidy for me i put on actually numerous dabs.
For the lips it gives it a red tint but it doesn't last too long compared to the cheeks.
Overall its a cheap and good lip and cheek tint comparable to the higher end stuff.

A lovely tint, it makes me look a lot brighter on those horrible winter days when the glare-y light makes your skin look almost grey! It's a really nice red as well, not too harsh, but just about noticeable to give you that nice little glow. Although it doesn't stay on your lips for long so you do have to keep re-applying it - but it stayed on my cheeks for hours.
Also when i screwed the applicator back in once it all sort of squidged out - not very good!!
But apart from that mishap i must say it's avery good. Worth the £9.50.

I don't like it as a lip tint because I'm not fond of the taste. It didn't last very long on me as a cheek tint but that might have been due to the fact that i used to use it on bare skin and did not use a finishing powder over it.

i gave this a 5 lippy for price only because i'm comparing the price to benetint. this is a cheaper alternative but i suppose works the same way. i have combination skin, so i put this under a neutral mac powder blush. i find that if i use this as it is, it looks splotchy and unbalanced.
but under a neutral mac blush, it gives me a lovely rosy hue. and yeap, it does stay and stay. at the end of a work day, my cheeks do look rosy like i have just been exercising.
don't like that i can't get the ends out, though. i';m down to my last quarter tube and it's tricky to get out. also, the colour leaks from the cap when i close it, leaving loads of product on my fingers after closing. messy.

I can never leave home without this on.. I'm using this solely as a cheek blush since I want my lips nude all the time ü the color is great and since it's in liquid form.. It lasts all day that I never needed to re-apply. It's quite expensive for me but I will definitely keep this item in my kit! Its best sealed with Dandelion.. will definitely give you that healthy looking glow! Also, it's the next best alternative to BeneFit's BeneTint.
Didn't break me out
Great color (not too red when applied)
Doesn't cover blemishes

I bought this product because Benetint was just too expensive and I wanted to experiment with cheek tint after using powder blushers for years (although if you realize that Benetint is a bigger bottle, it might actually be worth it).
I used it initially ON TOP of my make-up (liquid foundation, loose powder then the 'Lip and Cheek Tint') but realized it was slightly splotchy looking so I left it one side for a while before hitting on the idea of applying it BEFORE the loose powder. It made all the difference! Suddenly I had a natural looking rosy glow on my cheeks which didn't look at all like you applied blusher. Since it is applied after liquid foundation, it was easier to blend. And because it is applied before the loose powder, it looks like your natural colour coming through from under your make-up!!!
Gals if you want to experiment with cheek tint but do not want to splash out on a S$60 something Benetint, I suggest you try TBS 'Lip and Cheek Tint'. I love it!!!
