The Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip stain comes in a glass bottle, similar to that of nail polish, which has a white lid adorned with small beads and a zigzag-shaped upper edge. Even its applicator is the same one used for nail polish. This bottle is also available in a mini size that you can easily carry in a makeup bag. It is designed in the same way, minus the beads and zigzag edges.
This product consists of a liquid formula that spreads out effortlessly on the lips.
This cheek & lip stain is infused with the scent of fresh rose water.
The color of the stain appears to be red through the bottle, but it turns out to be rose-tinted upon application. You can find this stain in other colors: Gogotint (dark pink shade), Lollitint (purple shade), Chachatint (orange shade), and Posietint (bright pink shade).
You can either use this stain to color in the lips by applying a few drops and massaging it out, or to add a pop of color to the cheeks by applying a few drops and massaging it out until they turn rosy.
This stain gives off a rose-tinted color on the lips. It can replace any other product, like lipstick or gloss, in case you don’t wish to use them. Your lips will come out all rosy and natural, with no sign of stain applied.
This color doesn’t last for long though, it stays in place for 3 to 4 hours before having to reapply it. However, if you apply the stain first and follow up with lipstick or gloss, your lips will charmingly reflect the color and will look even fuller. We’d like to draw your attention to the fact that this stain dries out in no time. So it’s better to quickly pat it dry with your fingers when you slide it on, otherwise the color might come out patchy and uneven.
As for the cheeks, one layer is not enough to make the rosy color pop. You need to apply two or even three layers to notice the difference. In spite of that, the results are quite satisfactory as the cheeks appear flushed for around three to four hours as well. So it is best to keep this product on you in order to slide it on whenever you feel that the rosy color you desire has faded out from your lips or cheeks.
The full size Benetint Cheek & Lip is sold at 43 USD per 10 ml. This price is considered to be fair in comparison with Dior Addict Lip Tattoo which is sold at 39 USD per 6 ml only.
