I’m a huge fan of all the Benefit products I’ve tried, and if I had a larger bank account, I would own every single one. During an impromptu trip to Sephora, I decided to finally pick up Benetint, the rosy cheek and lip stain. Products that serve double-duty are always a-ok in my book, since you’re getting double the use out of them. I was excited to finally try out this best-seller.
The packaging and container is similar to High Beam, which I reviewed a while back here. I love the nail polish-like applicator- it deposits just the right amount of color and is easy to apply. The consistency is rather thin, but very tinted. You can either dot the color and then blend, or draw a thin line and then blend (I prefer to draw the line for an even coverage). I find that I need to apply the product twice to get a real nice flush of color. It adds a rosy pinkish-red tint to my cheeks and lips that isn’t too bold or too subtle. I prefer using it on my cheeks, but the lip tint is nice when I’m in a rush.
As far as lasting power, I usually apply a few coats so it lasts all day. The bottle is small enough to carry in your purse for touch-ups throughout the day, though. The best part is that this stuff will last you forever. The bottle may appear small for $30, but it will last you a year minimum- more than likely for 2 or 3 years. I justify the price being decent because of this.
Have you tried the infamous Benetint? Any thoughts? If you prefer watching a video (and to learn how to apply the stain or make fun of my accent), you can watch the video below. And if I’ve convinced you to make the splurge, you can buy it here at Sephora!
