            Unlike powder blushes, this stuff doesn't look cakey or fake, which I love. It is expensive but I think this little bottle might last me more than a year and I use it almost every day. Temporarily stains my fingertips when I apply it but I don't care. I don't use it as a lip tint because it tastes too awful for me to stand, which is why I took off a star.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

              I honestly never thought I would spend so much on a blush, but after using a little deluxe sample size I knew I HAD to buy the full size. The little size lasted me like a year, so I can't imagine how long the regular size will last me. It legitimately smells rosey and blends beautifully as a blush. It also works pretty well as a lip stain too! My favorite product by far!

                  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.

                            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."

                            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).
