Brush three strokes on the apples of your cheeks & blend quickly with fingertip. Apply on lips & blend. For a deeper "pop" of color, repeat.

    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.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

        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.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

            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.

                    Used this for a party I was hosting, I wanted something I could apply once and not worry about constantly. It was the perfect shade, and I added a few more coats for extra vibrancy. It stayed on so well and didn't even feel like I was wearing anything. Love it!

                        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.

                        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).
