    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

    First time using a liquid blush. Color is beautiful. Natural but pigmented. I only use one application when I'm not wearing foundation, then use powder on top. With foundation, I use two applications, then powder. Lasts all day which I've never had with a powder blush. Only concern is I don't know how long it will last.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

        This is a lightweight product that looks fresh, like the natural we wish were born with! The stain can be layered for a darker effect if desired. It does not flake and fades away naturally. I find I have to replace it once during a work day. I was dubious because over and over again I have purchased products with the hope for this kind of performance only to be disappointed. This time I have found a keeper.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

            I applied this on my cheeks and it immediately dried and would not blend at all. I tried blending with a damp beauty blender then with the warmth of my finger and neither worked. I then tried to remove it with a makeup wipe since it wouldn't blend, and it was stained. Had to put 2 layers of foundation and concealer on top of it before you couldn't see it anymore. Definitely taking it back. Waste of money.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

              I have been using Benetint as a cheek stain for almost 15 years now and I can't live without it. Unlike a powder blush this blends into your skin without drying it out and doesn't look chalky. It gives the appearance of healthy, naturally rosy cheeks used in the right amount, thought you can turn it up a notch if you want. For me Benetint generally lasts all day, but I do reapply if I'm going out at night.

              I find it too red/dark for my lips, but I have liked other shades.

                  I'm allergic to lip products and this is probably the only one on the market that doesn't break me out or irritate my lips I've been using this for over 10 years and it's my go to product I don't go anywhere without it although the big bottle applicator is very hard to use, the smaller bottle applicator is the one that I use. I use the small bottle and fill it from the big one. And take it to go since the small bottle applicators easier to apply as a very girly natural look and gives a really great healthy look to the lips it's not red and it's not pink it's an in between color and it looks very natural. I absolutely love this product so much I use it on top of the planter under lip liner very good probably my Best Buy

                    I use this for my lips and also as a blush. It works great as a blush for a natural flush look. Looks great on my lips, I top it off with some chapstick for a little shimmer.

                      i use a wet tissue and put the stain on top of it for a blended natural look. if you use it straight out of the bottle is is likely to look like a large stain on your face. takes some getting used to but once you master it you'll never use anything else. lasts until you wash it off. completely natural look. no one would no it's makeup.

                          Hi gorgeous! All of our tints look great on every skin tone! These lip and cheek stains are long-lasting and buildable...you can use one coat for a soft wash of color or several coats for an extra pop. Here are some other differences: --Benetint: a sexy sheer-rose shade for a sweet hint of color --Posietint: a poppy pink shade for a natural flush --Chachatint: a sassy mango shade for a warm tropical sunset hue --Lollitint: a candy-orchid pink for a POP of dreamy sweetness Have fun, gorgeous! xoxo, B

We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing and we are actively working to promote the development, validation, and recognition of non-animal methods. For instance, we are playing a leading role in the development of alternative methods through our support of the "Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing" in the United States and our active participation in the validation studies of new alternative tests in the framework of the European cosmetics association (Cosmetics Europe). Additionally, we are one of the few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the safety of our customers, which is our foremost priority.

                          We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide."

                      • Q:

                        Do you have this product in a smaller size? I have dry skin. Will it be difficult to apply?

                          A:

                          This product is currently only available in one size: 0.40 oz. Application is easy! To apply to cheeks, brush three strokes on the apple of each cheek and blend quickly with fingertips. To apply to lips, dot onto lips and blend with fingertip. For a deeper “pop” of color, repeat. To ensure smooth application on dry skin, first apply a moisturizer and a primer, such as Benefit Cosmetics Total Moisture Facial Cream (Item #: 2229452) and Benefit Cosmetics "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer (Item #: 2159818).
