PosieTint, ChaChaTint, and LolliTint are slightly creamy in consistency, BeneTint is straight up watery. The extremely thin consistency of this tint makes it a challenge to apply evenly. Whether it be on the lips or cheeks, you gotta blend BeneTint out fast, this stuff starts to sink in immediately! As with all liquid tints, BeneTint must be applied before powder products. If you're looking for lasting power, Benefit's tints are where its at. While all of Benefit's lip and cheek stains are long wearing, BeneTint boasts the most longevity. On the lips, BeneTin can last up to seven hours, and ten hours on the cheeks.Removal can be a chore, so apply with care. BeneTint has a strong rose scent and bitter flavor.
I find BeneTint difficult to apply evenly on the lips, it consistently shows up much stronger on the bottom lip. On top of that, this tint is very drying, accentuating dryness and occasionally causing that terrible shriveled lip look To correct this, I highly recommend prepping the lips with a scrub and balm, then pairing BeneTint with a moisturizing lip product like BeneBalm or Revlon's Balm Stain in Romantic. Color payoff is sheer, but it can be built up to an extent; while color can be built up, BeneTint will never be opaque, it just isn't that kind of product.
I much prefer BeneTint on the cheeks. This lip and cheek stain looks so natural, like a true flush. BeneTint really melds with the skin, it doesn't look like makeup at all. Its so hard to go overboard with this tint, you can just keep layering it and layering it, and you'll never look more than a little bit embarrassed. By far, this is the realest looking blusher I've ever tried.
BeneTint is a gorgeous, sheer, rosy red that becomes more pink when blended out. Its hard for me to describe the finish of BeneTint, because it doesn't really have one, it takes on the texture of your skin, or whatever foundation you apply it over. Generally though, BeneTint is matte, without any shimmer, glitter, or sheen.
Benefit's BeneTint was worth the wait. I'm glad that I finally got to try it. This lip and cheek stain can be a struggle to work with, so I wouldn't recommend it to a makeup novice. However, with a bit of effort, BeneTint can yield gorgeous results. This stuff creates the truest, rosiest flush I have ever seen! The little 4ml bottle I have will last be ages, since just a drop or two can go such a long way, but when its empty, I'll likely repurchase! I totally get the hype around BeneTint, and I do recommend it.
