Benetint claims

Our original rose-tinted stain is kiss-proof, see-through color for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours. Naturally sheer & sexy on all complexions…itโ€™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!

Price : Rs 1300 approx

How to apply (from benefit website )

how to apply benetint

What I love about Benefit Benetint:

  • If there is one blush I would like to purchase year after year after year, it would be this. This is the most long lasting and most natural looking blush I have ever tried.
  • It is a liquid rosy coloured sheer blush. On my skin tone , I have to apply atleast 3 layers of it for it to be really visible.
  • This would work on all skin tones. Depending on your skintone, you would have to apply more or less of it.
  • It works awesome base for a powder blush. I mean even after 8 hours , you would be able to see blush on your cheeks if you have applied benetint underneath.
  • It smells of fresh rose petals.
  • Once you get the hang of how to use it, it would barely take you second sto apply it.
  • It gives a fresh glow to cheeks without leaving making your face oily. Would work on all skin types.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Works fine on lips as a long stay product. Dab and blend within seconds of applying to avoid blotches. You can top it up witha lip balm and that does not fade the colour. I am not a fan of it on lips though. It sort of looks uneven on my lips.

benetint bottle

  • Comes with a nail polish kid of a brush, which is soft and works fine in applying the products. you would have to blend the blush with fingers.
  • Does not go patchy even after hours of application.
  • A great stuff especially for humid weather. Hold strong even when you are sweating. ๐Ÿ˜›

The not so good things about Benefit Benetint:

  • I had tough time learning how toย apply it. ย Youย haveย to apply it with a brush and if you don’t blend it within 10 seconds ofย applicationย it would dry and set forever on your face. You would end up with splotchy funny lookingย application. Also , since it is super long staying no matter how much you try to rectify it by topping with with a powder blush or by applying more tint, you’d only be worsening the application.ย 
  • It goes off only with an oil based remover.
  • The bottle is made up of glass, which is not travel friendly.ย 
  • Notย availableย in India . :(( Kunchals here in Delhi sells it at almost double the price.
  • Stains the fingers. It looks as if you have applied “aalta” on your fingertips. ๐Ÿ˜›

Overall, I love love love Benetint. It gives amazingly natural flush to cheeks. Wouldย definitelyย pick it again.

For those who are looking for a good liquid blush option available in India. They may try The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stainย or Lakme Cheek Tintย as well.

nice review rati… :thumbsup: & this one looks so awesome…i have tried the lakme one….but the color is more of pinkish rather then a healthy slight reddish glow…which i just hate…. :yuck: but i bought the bourjois hi-tech tint..red one for the lips..n i use it for the cheeks even…gives a very similar effect…the kind in your pic….n not very expensive also..its just around 400 something….. :woot: :woot: :woot:

Rati August 23, 2011 at 7:28 pm

oh yeah bourjois one is also nice. I have used that also. ๐Ÿ˜€ oh you dont like lakme one? A lot of people seem to love it. :))

Reply

dimpi August 23, 2011 at 7:34 pm

i said lakme one looks so pinkish….so not natural….i was so excited when it was launched….but when i used it….my husband thought i looked like red monkey who sun bathed and faded its color… ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ …..n i did try using it at other times also…but even my friends were like u are having a bad makeup day…. :yuck:

Rati August 23, 2011 at 7:35 pm

Gaea August 23, 2011 at 7:51 pm

supaaa!!! :yes:
i am a sucker for the “flush on cheeks effect” – cream and tint blushes are my top picks. this seems like the bestest ๐Ÿ˜€

i have tried TBS (both pink and the coral) and lakme – TBS pink is good. didnt go for bourjois as it was just lip tint :smirk: – i hate the lakme one – patchy, a bit obvious ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and since i picked the wrongest of MAC cream blushes – brit wit, have ordered for NYX natural, really looking fwd to it and hope it works alright ๐Ÿ˜‰

on this one, it needs an oil based remover?! :struggle: i am lazy for products that dont wash off with soap and water lol.

u have shed quite some wt i guess :star: (u dont need any sculpting ;)) – or is it the post viral effect ? ๐Ÿ™
i did read somewhere u had stretch marks – so yay! :yahoo: for your wt loss! :party:

Reply

Rati August 23, 2011 at 8:28 pm

gaea actually i dunno if i have lost weight bt if you guys are saying that i’d gladly take the compliment :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

oh yeah it does need an oil based remover. bt i love the ffect so i dont mind taking an extra step. ๐Ÿ˜€

no those were some stretch marks i had bt because of my carelesness they became so evident. :(( now they are nt going only. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

guess natural would work for you. :))

i likeeeedd… rati i had mailed u asking how is posietint.. toh ab idhar hi bata do..wud it realy be suitable for apne indian skintone… ?:) ?:)

Reply

Rati August 23, 2011 at 8:33 pm

oh! err i must have missed. ๐Ÿ™ posietint neha would work on most fair complexions. It is not as warm as benetint is. and that is quite light pink. this gives that warm rosy glow. Posietint looks cool toned pinks (if that makes sense)

both are good in their own way. depend son the kinds of complexion you have. ๐Ÿ™‚

Reply

Neha S. August 23, 2011 at 8:37 pm

i have basically neutral tones.. but mostly pinks and cool tones look better on me.. i think i wanna try posie.. but just fear it shudnt look too bubblegummy… ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜›
