Ask a Question
Benefit's original rose-tinted stain is kiss-proof, see-through color for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours. Naturally sheer & sexy on all complexions...it's innocent yet provocative.

Originally created for an exotic dancer in the 1970s, Benetint has soared to cult fave status. It's loved by celebs, makeup artists and gals around the world. It's the sexiest flush you can get from a bottle!
Brush three strokes on the apples of your cheeks & blend quickly with fingertip. Apply on lips & blend. For a deeper "pop" of color, repeat.

Beauty tip: Amp up the staying power of your lip color...wear benefit under your favorite lipstick or lip gloss. Wear under high beam on cheeks for a healthy, dewy glow.

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

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.

          My go-to stain

          By Naytash

          from Austin

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

          First off: like everyone else, I really don't like the applicator. Probably anything else would be better, since I end up using my hands or fingers to spread this on. With that out of the way: the color is my favorite thing ever!! I really think it would depend on the skin tone on whether it would suit you, so definitely try it out in store. They've been giving out samples of it too, as that's where I got mine. The smell is not too strong roses, and it stains very well on lips and cheek. You can layer it for added effect. I like it as a stain, making my lips just a bit more colored than their natural hue, and then I throw some lip balm over it (my fave is to use Smiths Rosebud to add to the pink/rose hue and smell: lovely!)

              I love this product and have been using it for years. My only "complaint" is that it tends to get lighter the closer you are to finishing the bottle.

              Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

              I have the mini gift one and it stays on all day and has awesome pigment as well as an awesome feel on the skin. the only thing is that since its liquid, using too much is a danger, so a little goes a long way.

                  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."

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).
