    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint:

    I am 58, and you would think this would be a young girls' blush, but I got a sample of it and decided one day to try it. It gives the most beautiful natural blush you have ever seen, and is especially nice for daytime. I am now much preferring this over my powder blushes, because it looks so much more natural. My husband even noticed it, and said I didn't look as "made-up." The only downside to me is it can be a little hard to blend. I was trying too hard at first, now I just pop it on and blend a little. After all, our real blush is not perfect! I use primer and foundation, and they help it to blend in. Upsides? My tiny little bottle lasted 8 months, even using it almost every day, and....it smell like roses!

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint:

      I like the color as a lip stain; it's a nice addition to my Benefit lip stain collection when I want something a little more dramatic. Although it looks pretty dark, it's easy to put on a light layer and then build up to a darker shade. I have a terrible time keeping any kind of color on my lips and this stain didn't perform any better or worse than any others I have tried.

      I was not happy with it as a cheek stain. It dries very quickly making it hard to blend it out evenly. I ended up with uneven color every time.

      It has a very strong rose scent. I don't mind it but if you don't like flowery scents, you should probably pass this one up.

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint:

        This had been my daily blush for years. Just like it describes itself on the bottle "the sexiest flush you can get from a bottle." If you want that natural flush/blush look this is it. I love this stuff and would be crushed if they ever discontinued it. Build-able color that lasts until you wash it off. Great stain color for lips too!

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint:

        If I don't feel like taking a lot of time to put on makeup I just throw a bit of this on my lips and cheeks and it really makes a difference. It's pretty light and, especially on the lips, it fades fairly quickly, but it looks really natural. In terms of tints, I would buy this before any other one I can think of.

        I use this everyday, on my lips and cheeks. Its great for everyday use, but Nice enough for special occasions. Bought to use in my wedding. Smeels just like roses. you can add more till you get the shade that you like.
        The girl at Ulta told me that you cant make this look bad, and at first I didnt believe her. Its red liquid and made me very nervous, but she was right! Blends so nicely and is remarkably easy to apply! I feel just like snow white or cinderella while wearing it!

            I loved this for the short time I wad able to use it. The glass nail polish bottle broke when it fell put of my bag and smashed on the floor a plastic bottle would be better. For $30 I won't be purchasing again.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint:

            Love this product. I use it as both a blush and a lip colour. I appreciate the natural flush it gives your cheeks as well as the long lasting classic colour on the lips.

            I use a thicker lip brush for lip application that I can cover my whole lips in a few swipes. This allows it to dry evenly. The applicator it comes with makes it a bit more difficult for even coverage since it doesn't cover as much area.

            As for the cheeks, I put a few dots of the product on the apples of my cheek and blend into my base (foundation or bb creme) with my fingers. I feel fingers give the most even, natural application, with little risk of streaking.

                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).
