Most Helpful Positive Review Don't be fooled by the bright orange
I received this in a trial size gift set. I thought "hmmm... bright orange?" I have fair skin, though right now is tanned and hazel eyes. I stayed home one day and decided to give it a whirl. WOW! It's not orange at all! In fact, it has a nice fresh glow about it... and "sun-kissed" look. HUGE fan! I have tried it as a lip stain. One coat is fine. 2 coats and you're starting to get too coral for my taste, but others may like it. I have all 3 stains. Posie is now my least favorite. Benetint and Cha Cha Cha rock! If you are hesitant, I don't blame you one bit. If you have the option to buy in within a gift set, definitely do it. I think you will be sold on it, and you won't feel compelled to love it since you didn't splurge on the big one.
Most Helpful Critical Review Bright & wearable, but stains easily
I use this as both a lip stain and a cheek stain. When you're using as a cheek stain, keep in mind that this is bright colour that is absorbed by your skin VERY quickly (even if you have cover up on), so you need to blend it into your cheeks as soon as you put it on. You can't even wait three seconds to screw the cap back on the bottle, otherwise you'll have a huge orange dot on your face. This also stains your hands.
When I use this on my lips, I like to blend it with the Posietint colour and top it off with some lip balm, as this can be drying.
Overall, I find this lasts longer on cheeks than lips. The colour is bright, but you can build the intensity to your liking, so it could really be suitable for a variety of skin tones.

Works like the old stains. Stays on all day. even under a mask. Needs a gloss, can be drying.
Perfect for the makeup minimalist
Lindsay from Denton, TX
I'm a 40-something who doesn't use much makeup. I remembered the gel lip/cheek stains I got from the drug store when I was a kid in the 80's, and set about looking for them again to add a little color to my face. I was pleased to find Benefit has a line of them, as I always like their products. I got the mini size of this color to try it out, and was a little shocked by the vivid orange color when I opened it, but after application it dries to a pretty, sunny coral. I'm very happy with it. I plan to buy one of the reds next.
Perfect for adding some everyday razzle-dazzle.

This is a more creamy consistency than the original Benetint, but it seems to help with application, longevity and color payoff. Right out of the tube it's a scary orange color but it turns into a very pretty peachy-coral shade on my medium-brown skin. You do have to blend it in quickly before it can dry even a little bit...otherwise it leaves streaks.
I even bought for Daughter-In-Law- LOVE THIS PRODUCT
DM from Paulden, AZ
I had receive a sample of this and loved it! Especially having to wear masks now, it's great for the lips. It stains your lips with color and doesn't transfer. You can build the color by applying more coats if desired. . It gives enough stain to look like a natural color on the lips. It is not dry or tacky, you can apply a gloss on type if you want as well. You might have to reapply after you eat. Start with a shear layer and build from there! Highly recommended in my personal opinion.
I just love this product, easy application

Used for cheek, eye color and lip tint.
Sparkle from FL
I used this product as a blush. It gave a really natural glow that I was going for. Should you desire a less subtle look, you can easily add more to build color.
My FAVORITE lip stain!!!! I've tried soooo many...
Lindade from Kansas
I've tried many stains and like this one best. Some are too intense, or go too dark for me. Some don't show up. This one gives a soft but bright color.
Lasts the day

Nice color can be subtle or bold depending on layers.
Classic awesome tint

Benefit has incredible tints and I always go back. Tried and true tint!
Lace from Las Vegas, NV
Been wanting to try Lip + Cheek stain and I'm glad I started with Benefit Chachatint. When I saw that they have peachy-orangey color that goes with my medium skin tone, I knew I found the one. This will be perfect for days that I just wanna have a "no makeup" make up look, simple yet flattering!
Absolutely love. Stays on!
Emdot from Los Angeles
Beautiful color that stays put. Please please do NOT discontinue this product.
I will buy it for friends
Syd from Omaha NE
It was a great color and best stain
carloh from LA County
In love with this color and formula!!
Definitely buildable so you can go super sheer or super punchy color, whatever your preferences are. As an (extremely) oily skin girl, I appreciate a product that is as quick&easy as cream/stick blushes but in a formula that actually works well on my skin type. This color is also right up my alley since I love blush colors that lean more towards peach-orange. Can't speak for the other colors/formulas, but this one is definitely a winner!!
Flipflopgirl from Pikeville, Ky
I started using this as a summery blush on the recommendation of an Ulta employee. I like it so well, that I use it Year round. Soft color, looks natural. I have always disliked the artificial look of blush, but felt I needed a little something to give me a glow. This is it!
Flipflopgirl from Pikeville Ky
I feel that my skin tone doesn't have enough glow. I have always used a powder or cream blush. But, as I get older, I prefer a more natural look. This does it, smooth it on your cheek bones, and it give a little glow to your whole face.
Tonya from Raleigh, NC
I love it! Just don't put too many layers or it gets really dark. I don't love the applicator but I'm getting used to it.
I would not buy again
Sue from Sebring Fl.
Did not like the applicator - too much like applying nail polish to your lips. After eating a sandwich it was gone - I thought it was a stain, but it did not last. Loved the color in the bottle though . Tech applied it on her hand to demo and I thought it would work. I have only found one lipstick that lasted like a stain but they don't make it anymore. I'm tired of trying cosmetics (especially expensive ones) that don't work like they advertise.... Sorry Ulta...
Nice base or plain!
Escapemom from Wellington
I don't use the applicator...I use a Qtip and apply til I get the color I am looking for. You can build the color up! This isn't very drying either. Looks natural!
Super Long Lasting and 100% Natural Looking!!
MzPayne from Savannah, GA
When I first saw this blush I was super intimidated by the applicator/type- it literally looks like fingernail polish?! But after using it, I will NEVER buy another type of blush again. Because it's a stain it stays on all day, and as someone who doesn't wear any other makeup other than mascara, blush, concealer (for my baggy eyes), and lipstick- I needed a blush that would stay on all day without applying a primer/foundation, etc...The trick to using this blush and getting great results is applying it a certain way... I personally use the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush, but I think any sculpting/blush brush would work. I use the applicator brush that comes in the bottle and put about a pencil tip size drop on the RT brush and apply it in a blending/sweeping motion immediately to one cheek- and then repeat the process on the other. This can be tricky, because if the liquid sits in one spot on your face for more than a few seconds it will leave a "stain", making the color uneven; however its VERY easy to apply and blend if you do one cheek at a time (also easy to remove if you do happen to get an uneven tone). Overall this product is amazing!!! It's very simple to use after your first try, lasts ALL day, and only requires a very small amount- so it will probably last me almost a full year!!! Worth every penny!!!
Doesn't stay on as long as other tints
FenwayMom from Roswell, GA
I was disappointed by the Cha Cha Tint. It doesn't stay on nearly as long as other tints I've used in the past. Isn't that why people buy tint - because it lasts most of the day? When I first put it on, the color is shockingly bright. It fades to a nice color pretty quickly, but within a couple of hours, the color is completely gone. I won't buy it again.
Perfect for what I was wanting

Great stuff, looks great on lips!
Only blush I use!!
Kmichelle from Austin, Tx
I use cha cha tint for my cheeks to give it a natural blush look, it's a tint so it lasts all day long and I also use it for my lips and it looks so natural and pretty. Cha cha tint is the perfect summer color, and it is the only blush I am using at the moment. The only thing is that you have to be really careful when applying it. The directions on their say "Place three vertical lines on your cheeks with the applicator" I tried that but since it's a tint it dries quickly and you are stuck with three vertical lines on your cheeks. The applicator is that of a nail polish so I use the Real techniques stippling brush and it applies cha cha tint waaaaay better than using fingers or a sponge.
