Benetint is one of Benefit's most iconic and best selling products. It's a rose-tinted lip and cheek stain. I've been using Benetint for several years now and really love the natural, healthy looking glow it gives me.
A big advantage of Benetint is that you can have a little sheer flush of colour or you can build it up to be more dramatic, depending on the look you're going for. If I am going for a really natural understated look, I will apply a little before my foundation and the Benetint just peeks through enough to give a really natural and subtle glow.
Although Benetint is designed to be a multipurpose product to be used on both the cheeks and the lips, personally I don't really choose to wear it on my lips. I have tried it a few times but it dried my lips out a little and I don't find the colour to suit my lips as much either. It works really well on me as a blush and I'm happy to just use it in this way and use a separate lipstick/lip balm.
The scent of the product is a really subtle and feminine rose scent, which I adore. It just adds a bit of something extra special to the product and makes it feel really luxurious and expensive.
Benetint is definitely on the pricier side and retails at about £25, but I do think it is worth this amount. A bottle, although it may look small, actually lasts me for around a year (even with daily usage).
There are several 'dupes' of Benetint and I have tried a fair few. None of them have lived up to the real thing, but the best of the ones I've tried is The Body Shop lip & cheek stain which is a good, much less expensive alternative (£10).
If you're on the fence about purchasing, I would definitely recommend you to try it out. It's a really lovely and luxurious blush and I think it could work well on all skin tones.
I was so won over on this product the minute I saw the colour and was quite taken with the fact it is good for the lips and cheeks.
I'm not one for tints mainly due to not being very good at applying it onto the cheeks, I look like I'm heading for the circus but what I found helped was the little video the company produces and amount of help online now. Also, BENEFIT gives little note for you to download. It seems so simple but when you haven't tried or have tried and failed just knowing you're applying it right takes a lot of pressure off.
Also my skin is clear now, so I don't feel that I'm highlighting an area I'd rather not. I always would love those rosy cheeks that glow and look great in photos and this is as close to perfect as I have found in terms of a tint.
You can make this as light as you'd like or as dramatic as you'd like. I put LIPCOTE over the top of the tint to hold it as I find it does bleed a like too much or fades quicker than I'd like.
The only negative I have about this is that it can dry your lips out a lot. The day after using this, I find I spend another day with Vaseline trying to moisturize.

This little bottle goes a long way. x
Benetint is a rose-tinted lip & cheek stain from Benefit Cosmetics. It comes presented in what looks like a nail polish bottle with a built in brush. Benetint costs £24.50 for a 12.5ml bottle. It's not cheap but a bottle usually lasts me around a year so it will last you a while. That's the good thing about Benefit Cosmetics, their products lasts ages so try not to be put off by the hefty price tags. Benetint is easy to use. Simply brush three strokes on the apples of your cheeks & blend quickly with your fingertip before it dries. If you don't blend the tint quickly enough it will stain your cheeks with the initial three strokes. So make sure you blend it quickly as stripy cheeks isn't such a good look!
The tint looks lovely and gives your cheeks a nice rosy glow. It's better to apply the tint over foundation so you achieve the best overall look. The tint is long lasting and doesn't fade throughout the day. I never need to top it up on my cheeks, although I top it up on my lips every so often.
Yes, you can also use Benetint on your lips. Simply brush the tint on your lips using the built in brush and pout until your heart's content. Benetint gives a lovely red colour to the lips. I wouldn't say it's a subtle colour but it's not too "in your face" either. It stays put whilst eating and drinking but I do like to top it up now and again as I just like the feel of the brush against my lips. It feels lovely!
Benetint is a gorgeous lip and cheek stain that stays put, looks nice and lasts ages. I do wish it was a little cheaper though as it does put a big hole in my pocket when it comes to repurchasing it!
A nice innovative product from Benefit.
This is a product that is one of my make up stand bys. It isn't cheap iitially but I find it lasta ages.
It comes ina box and inside is a pot a bit like a nail varnish glass pot and the applicator is similar to a nail varnish one too.
I use this to giv e abit of volour to my cheeks and also as a lip colour. It is a liquid, like water only a deep red> kind of like red food colouring. As it is so very liquid and the pot only has the brush applicator lid you have to be careful not to knock it over as it would make a nasty mess.
It stains when it gets on your clothes so be careful not to drip any.
I like the fact that you can apply a little an blend it in or add more if you want a deeper colour. On my cheeks I put just a little but on my lips I sometimes apply a few coats.
It does not protect your lips at all. In fact it is quite drying so I apply a good quality gloss or lip balm over the lip stain to give extra gloss and protection.
I used to buy this regularly but have found that Superdrug have a copy cat product that does the same job for a lot less money so i now buy that.
I would recommend this as a good multi purpose blusher and lip stain but there are cheaper copies available if you are on a limited budget.
I was recently lucky to be given a set of Benefit make up products for my birthday which gave me a great opportunity to try out some new products. One of the products in the set was this Benetint lip and cheek stain. I have used Posietint before as I have quite pale skin so was worried that the Benetint might be too bright for me but decided to give it a go.
The stain comes in a small red bottle with a white lid. Inside is an applicator which is like a tiny paint brush. The first thing that I noticed is that unlike Posietint the consistency of the stain is very liquid. This means that you have to be very carful applying it or it can drip everywhere.
It is recommended that you put a few crosses of the stain on your cheek with the applicator and then rub them in. I find that this does not work for me as I am never quick enough and it leaves marks on my face. Instead I tend to put a little on my fingers and then dab it on my cheeks.
On putting the stain on my cheeks I was quite pleased as it was not as bright as it looked and gave me quite a natural looking blush. I think it is best only to use a small amount. What I like best about the product is that unlike other blushers that I have used it does seem to stay for most of the day and does not fade.
I would recommend this stain as part of a kit but probably would not buy it separately as there are other cheaper version available.
After trying The Porefessional product from benefit I just had to try out another product and I am not as happy with the Benetint. Although the product isn't horrible, I do not feel it is worth the amount of money. There are similar products for a lot less that are comparable.
The problem I faced with this product is the packaging. It comes in a little bottle with a brush that comes out of the top kind of like a nail polish bottle. You are supposed to brush it onto the area of skin that you want the product to go and then blend it with a brush, sponge, or your fingers. I am not a fan of the brush applicator because after using it so often the brush collects bacteria and can actually cause break outs wherever it has touched skin. I also don't like how if blended with fingertips the product stains (Yes I know that's what it supposed to do, but it doesn't blend well with a brush or sponge) If you can manage to get the product applied to your hearts content, then yes. The product will stay in place all day long without smudging or fading. I have an olive skin tone and the color that is available in this product is not great for my skin color. I don't think it looks good with all skin types.
Why this product?
I asked a girl at work what blush she wore as it was nice. This was many years ago and she introduced me to a fairly new brand- Benefit and the cheek stain Benetint.
When first buying this product I could not believe the price of it .It is about the size of a nail varnish bottle (12.5 ml) and the liquid inside is watery and a blood red in colour. The consistency is what you would expect a stain to be, but I must advise to watch your flooring and clothes when you apply the product, as it is hard to remove. To be fair, the product does last a long time and does not need to be reapplied once on.
When applying the stain, I place it on a blusher brush and blend quickly as it dries very fast. I apply it with a blusher brush, because it gives a more natural glow. Many people have commented on my skin when I wear this product and I think it makes my eyes pop.
The product is meant to also be used on the lips. I have found that the liquid is far too drying to use on my lips, and as it is a thin watery substance, it runs into the lines around the lips. For this reason, I only use it on my cheeks, but love this product and would still buy it regardless of this.
Would I Recommend?
My reviews are my own work, but may appear on other websites
This is a gorgeous blush and lip tint. It is quite pricey but is worth it. When applied to the cheeks it gives a very natural look. It makes you look very flushed. When applying this product you have to be careful. If you apply to much onto the cheeks it will stain and be hard to blend out. Also try to avoid getting the product on your clothes as it will stain them. When on the lips it also looks nice. It starts off glossy then drys up and turns into a stain which lasts for hours. It can be quite drying and is not the most flattering lip product but is perfect for a summers day where you do not want to keep applying more product or if you just don't want to carry a lipstick round with you the whole day. Overall I would defo recommend purchasing xxx Imogen
Benefit do some gorgeous make-up which I like to treat myself to once in a while but unfortunately due to their price they are only an occasional treat. The Benetint is a cheek and lip tint which costs 24 gbp so it isn''t a cheap product but it is a really good one and a lovely treat to myself when I fancy something nice. Benetint comes in a bottle similar to a nail varnish as there is a brush that is stuck to the inside of the lid for easy application. You are supposed to draw 3 stripes of the Benetint on the apple of your cheek and then blend it in. The colour in the bottle looks very dark but when it is applied to cheeks it just gives them a lovely natural flush of colour which isn''t glaring or too rosy. You can apply more on top of the first coat to get a darker colour but I find that just applying the 3 strokes is more than enough for my complexion to give it a nice natural glow of colour. One of the ways that you can tell that this is a really high quality product is that it lasts for so long compared to normal blushers. I have no problems getting 12 hours of wear out of this and it stays put even on hot days. On your lips it won''t last as long but it still lasts longer than most lip glosses will and it gives lips a lovely stain of colour that again isn''t too dark. A nice way of using it is to apply it over your lipstick which just gives your lip stick a bit more colour and also helps keep it in place for much longer than it would normally stay put. You only get a tiny looking bottle for the money but it lasts for a surprisingly long time even though when I have a bottle I use it almost every day even just around the house because it is so nice. I love this and just wish it was a little bit cheaper as I would never be without it if it cost less but at the price it retails for it will just have to remain an occasional treat and one that I look forward to giving myself when I have some extra cash.
I am a big fan of Benefit makeup because I think it is good stuff and often quite quirky. I got this Benetint, which is one of Benefit's most popular products as part of the Sugarlicious gift set that I got for my birthday.
To be honest I am still a bit unsure about it. I can tell that it is a good quality product, but I am just not sure if it is the product for me. I prefer a bronze look rather than rosy cheeks, which is exactly what this stain gives you. Don't worry though it is not a bright colour that makes you look like a clown, more of a pinched look I would say. When you apply it I would recommend applying it little by little so you don't go too far and run it in straight away or you'll get red stripes on your cheeks.
I tend to use it more often on my lips because it seems to accentuate the colour of them rather than staining them so much that you look like you have got a vampire pout! I find though that it really dries my lips out (something that I am prone to anyway) so I have to add lots of lip balm over the top. This is not necessary a problem though because I find that the two combined give my lips and nice shiny, pink and, most important, natural look.
It costs twenty four pounds and fifty pence on the Benefit website at the moment and I personally think that is a bit steep, even though it does last for ages. I won't be buying it again, but that is mainly because I like bronze products rather than rosy ones. If you prefer the latter, then Benetint would probably be perfect for you.
Benefit Benetint us one of the classic range that they keep on year after year and is a staple of my make up bag. Although it comes in a small bottle you only ever need a few drops at a time so it actually really lasts.
I use it in two different ways:
1) as a cheek tint in place of blusher. Just dab a few dots along the underside of cheekbone then REALLY QUICKLY and firmly rub it in. You MUST do this quickly as it drains and dries really quickly so you need to blend and spread immediately.
2) as a lip stain. Just a quick flick if the brush on upper and lower lip then rub lips together to blend and cover evenly.
Make sure you gave a baby wipe or hand wash immediately to hand to clean your fingers after blending as (just the same as cheeks) it only rakes a few seconds for it yo dry and stain quickly! Not such a good look to give dark red fingertips!
Been using the same bottle of benetint for years. Product smells great and looks very natural when applied. U have to work very quickly with this. I feel like its rather watery as compared to benefit's other tints like posietint and cha cha tint which means you may need to use more product. Would live benefit to maybe reformula so that it's the consistency of their other tints. Overall, nice and natural looking and smells great.
It is a really lovely product but it is very pricy. Personally I think the packaging could look better for the price you are paying for a bottle of rose tinted water (basically). I think that it definatly is a luxury product that looks very natural on your face. I would keep on purchasing if the price was lower.
I think this tint is very different compared to benefits other lip and cheek stains I.e. Cha cba tint and poise tint.
Definatly a product to buy.
I've been using this amazing product for around 10 years now and I still love it today as much as I did when I first discovered it. Benefit's Benetint is a lip and cheek tint in a lovely rosy sheer pink colour. It gives a lovely natural look giving your face and lips that youthful glow that we all aspire to.
Benetint comes in a lovely little bottle, much like nail polish, and when you open it the cap has a brush attached to it for applying the rosy tint. It fits into your handbag perfectly as it is quite small but even so I find it lasts absolutely ages even when used on a daily basis - months and months. It's easy peasy to apply too - you literally just brush a small amount on to your cheek (I tend to do it on the 'apple' part of my cheek i.e. this is the largest puffy part of your cheek when you smile) and then use your finger to spread it round a bit for a natural glow. You do the same on your lips and if you want a deeper hue then repeat the application - easy peasy! I use this product instead of blusher which I think looks too harsh on my skin, plus I'm not very good at applying it. However Benetint is so easy to use and looks so natural that I find don't really need to use blusher.
One of the side effects that I experienced when I was going through my breakdown last year was that it left me incredibly pale. Even my lips were almost white, with a pale blue tinge. I did literally look like death warmed up slightly. I didn't venture out of the house much, but when I did, this was a fantastic help. I don't normally wear makeup, but I did keep this in the car so I could use it whenever I did go out.
Benetint was first designed as makeup for exotic dancers. It aims to give your lips and cheeks a subtle glow, so people wonder if you've been up to something naughty. his is a 2 in 1 product, although I only ever used mine on my lips to give me a bit of colour. My benetint was part of the' Justine Case' set, but you can buy this on it's own for £24.50 for 12.5ml
The benetint is a deep red liquid and comes in a small pot with a brush for ease of application. The packaging looks similar to a nail polish bottle, with the round, clear glass bottle and the small applicator brush. There isn't much of a smell or a taste from this. This contains rose water, and this is the only hint of a smell or taste that I found. The brush made the product easy to apply, I just sort of painted it on my lips. It dried almost instantly, so I'd imagine you need to be very quick if using this as a cheek tont. The colour on my lips was similar to what my usual natural colour is; I just looked like I had bitten my lip slightly to increase the blood flow. It just gave me enough of a hint of colour that I looked like myself. It was a nice natural colour, and the colour was long lasting and didn't bleed or transfer to fabrics or cutlery. I did find though that Benetint was quite drying on my lips, and I needed to use a lot of lipbalm on the days following me using this.
I don't feel this product is worth the price tag. Maybe for those who are more experienced with makeup, this would be a great product, as you can use it on both your lips and cheeks, but I only ever used it as a lip colour as I don't feel too sure of liquid blushers and I was scared of looking like a clown. I have also read that Benetint doesn't blend well if you use it over foundation and if I am wearing makeup, I need foundation.
Now that the colour has returned to my skin, and I look almost normal again, I won't need this again, I hope! Even if I did, I think a tinted lipbalm would do a similar job for a lot less money. I loved the colour, but the fact it dried out my lips and I wasn't that impressed with the results, especially considering the price. There are hundreds of positive reviews on the internet about this product, so it has it's many fans and has also won some beauty awards, but this wasn't for me.
I got this as a free sample in a a magazine here are my thoughts.
This comes in a small glass bottle that is a light foil effect pink and the lid in white with a brush in it. It is kind of like a nail polish is that sense and the brush is about that size. There writing on the front is white there is a small flower on the packaging aswell. The one I have have I believe to be a travel size and this fits very comfortably in my coin purse, the packaging really is great quality unfortunately the good ends there.
Colour and Formulation
This is known as 'rose tinted' in colour but this just did not show on my skin. I wouldn't mind but I am very pale so that really shouldn't be a problem. Mine may have just been a dodgy one as it is a lot paler than I have seen from other reviews and on the website.
I found this to be very thin and to much thicker than water. When I tried this on my list it made them feel quite odd and this did not give my lips any colour at all. It didn't even complete a 'my lips but better look' I was very disappointed. As I tried to get a colour added I was just adding more and more of this liquid to my lips and it made them chapped. I cannot comment on the staying power of this as I couldn't see it.
This didn't transfer though so at least it didn't ruin anything. I just found the whole product a real disappointment.
On my cheeks this gives them a slight flush but by the time I have added powder etc this an barely be seen, this may be because I have fairly rosy cheeks anyway but I really hoped to see a difference.
Price and Availabilty
This can be from most department stores and also at Boots. There are a number of online stores that also provide this. I find the price of this quite appalling, the full size is being sold for £24.50. This is an awful lot off money t be spending on just one product that for me did absolutely nothing.
This has put me off the Benefit brand is general even though I quite like the bad gal mascara, but this is far too expensive and I will not repurchase.
