    I use this as a blush and a lip tint. Very natural looking. It does stain your hands, so make sure you wash them right away after applying!

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

      I initially got a trial size bottle while traveling and fell in love. I saw pictures people had taken of me while I was wearing this and the soft flush was natural and youthful. I hate makeup that feels heavy, so I rarely wear lipstick. This allows me to color my lips without a greasy, sticky, or dry feeling.

                Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

                This is my go to when I wear a product on my lips! I'm still using the tiny free sample sized bottle and it has lasted me a few months and isn't even halfway empty yet. It smells great and allows for varying shades of color depending upon how many coats you apply. My only qualm is that it is kind of pricey.

                  This is a great lip and check stain. It's very natural looking as long as you don't go too crazy and apply a ton of it. Benetint also smells lovely. Make sure to bled fast when applying to your checks though.

                      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!

                      "We do not test our products on animals. 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."

                      Hi gorgeous! Benefit does not test for or claim that our products are hypo-allergenic (least likely to cause an allergic reaction) or non-comedogenic (does not cause pimples & blackheads). If you have a specific allergy, please review the ingredients which are listed on the product page and contact your general practitioner to determine if a product is suitable for your skin.

                      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).
