    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

    I use this on my cheeks, obviously. The nice thing is that it is up to you as far as how saturated you want the color. I also use it on my lips. I line my lips with a matching rose color and then apply one or two coats of Benefit Cheek Tint. I can leave it matte or put gloss on top. The color is beautiful. Even if you're running off to the gym, put this on your cheeks for a little rosy glow until you can work one up. I have used this for years and it is probably my number 1 favorite product. There is nothing bad about this product, it is amazing!

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

      LOVE this product. The only thing I would recommend is to apply it to a smooth surface (i just use the top of my foundation bottle) and swirl a blush brush around in that instead of applying directly to cheeks. This has given me the best results for smooth application. I use it on my lips sometimes and love the color it gives me without a glossy finish. I have never been a fan of lip glosses so I love lip tints for everyday use.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

            This is my all time favorite beauty product. There is nothing else like this that is so versatile. I use it for cheeks and lips. I use this for a quick run to the store all the way to a fabulous night out. You have total control of the shade you need. Just a dab on cheeks for a healthy hue or several layers on lips for a noticeable, kissable smile all night long. I can slip this one product in my purse and need nothing more when going out. LOVE this. I use it alone or put some gloss over it for moisture and shine. I have gotten all my friends addicted to it. I wish it was a bit more moisturizing, but the benefits far outweigh that when I can just use gloss too.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

            I have been using this (and the lighter pink shade) for a couple years now- amazing product. You can use it alone, directly on cheeks and lips for some natural color. Or put on top of your favorite C C cream for a little more finished look. It can also be used under your blush to help set the color. This rose color is no where near as dark as you would think. Yet the lighter pink is plenty of color too. Just adjust color intensity by the amount of dots you dab onto your face. I have very light olive skin, and I apply 3 2cm stripes to the apple of each cheek, then I rub in with circular motion. I also use on my lips. All you need is this, and a little lip gloss and you are set. Love love love this product!

            Try it as a blush!

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain:

            I never use this on my lips and I am addicted to it as blush! Apply as a few dots and use a makeup sponge to immediately blend after moisturizer/primer but before any foundation/concealer/BB cream for a beautiful natural blushing from within appearance. Pair it with a matte red lip for a easy retro glam look!

              I was hesitant to purchase this product because I read reviews saying that it disnt work very well. I bought it anyways, tried it and I loved it. I hate everything about lipstick, and I wanted something to add to my look without having to worry about retouching it all day. I put this on once and it lasted all day. It also made my lips look bigger.

                This is so much better than a powder foundation and I love the color it gives my lips! Cons are mainly that it stains my fingers and tastes really bad but I'm completely in love with the look it gives my skin! It gives a gorgeous rosy glow that blends right into the skin. If you struggle with cake face like I do this product is a must have!

                    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).
