staying power


it stays on my face for at least 8 hours

- Sephora User

it is a beautiful feminine pink color, you can build it to be as light or bold as you want it, it looks really natural because there is not a powdery, sparkly look and it lasts all day

- Sephora User



it is such a nice shade of pink that it brings out the natural color in my lips without it looking over did, they are nice and subtle for daytime wear without the heavy feel of lipsticks

- Sephora User

no longer weighted down with the harsh formulas in most lipsticks, this product goes on weightlessly and stays with a solid color for hours

- Benefitcosmetics User



like posietint this has a very creamy texture and blends beautifully into the skin as long as you work quickly

- Boots User

i loved the texture smoothed on lips like a dream

- Birchbox User

chapped lips

hydrates lips

doesnt dry lips

- Debenhams User

posie tint gives me an even better pop of color (easier to control, and with more blendability, too) and also looks smooth, feels moisturizing, and lasts alllll day

- Sephora User



the creamy texture helps it blend easily (as long as you're quick

- Birchbox User

the formula is most similar to posietint, where it's a creamy, milky consistency that doesn't sink in right away, so you have more time for blending

- Sephora User



:)what i love about it:this "sexiest flush you can get from a bottle"has a naturally sheer and sexy on all complexions is buildable from the sheerest application to a bright flush

- Benefitcosmetics User

posietint is a delightful poppy-pink tint that gives you the ability to create a sheer cheek stain or the ability to layer it and give it more pop

Perfect summer color

I'm a big fan of Benetint and Posietint (former for winter/fall, latter for spring), so I was super excited for Cha Cha Tint for summer! Happy to say, I love the color. It's the perfect punchy peachy orange for me. It shows up well and looks natural on my pigmented lips and medium, warm-toned Asian skin. Cha Cha Tint is a milky, opaque, creamy liquid, similar in consistency to Posietint. It looks alarmingly bright right out of the bottle, but sheers out nicely into a natural-looking flush. Like Benefit's other stains, this comes in a bottle with a brush that reminds me of nail polish packaging. I'm not a fan of this brush because it leaves streaks on my cheeks and is too floppy to control on my lips. So I wind up putting a bit of the liquid on another surface and then using my own brushes to apply to my lips or cheeks. This stuff stays on through a full workday and starts to fade a bit at night. It is a true stain--once it absorbs, I can eat or drink without worrying about it coming off. I did not find it drying, but I still like to put a light layer of lip balm or lipgloss on top. Overall, very happy with this product! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

at first, i was hesitant to buy this since it’s $18. there is plenty of other cheaper options of blushes/lip stains. i honestly fell in love with this product. i use it everyday, and it lasts me all day long. a little tip: if you don’t want it to be as pigmented (it is very pigmented) you can use a chapstick and put two dots on your lips and blend it, and you have a beautiful reddish look to your lips. if you’re using it on your cheeks, you should use a mist/setting spray before you apply. in my opinion, if you don’t use either of those tips for lips or cheeks it will be VERY pigmented, and it drys very quickly, which makes it hard to blend!!!!! other than that it is seriously perfect! it’s so worth $18.

Not too impressed, but it was still nice

I'd been wanting to try this for a while and a visit to Sephora cemented my need to give it a go!The positives:It is just in the most fabulous possible packaging. The metallic rose gold container looks amazing in your makeup bag.This is probably the most convenient possible blushing product you can get! It it very, very easy to blend in and this way to can have your blushing + highlighting together in one place.The negatives:The price is prohibitively high considering the limited use of this and the very small amount of product. I do feel that you would get much better use out of a box o' blush and a highlighter and you would get results that are much easier to customize. You can layer this product pretty easily, but I find that I needed three of four layers of the highlighting tone to get the shine that I needed.The pink is VERY hot pink. If you're pretty light, like me, and you like more natural colors, this might be a little dramatic for you. Also, I preferred Bella Bamba MUCH more for my dramatic blush because it has more dimension which I found fine-one-one to be rather flat.I was thoroughly unimpressed with this as a lip color. It had a serious tendency to settle unpleasantly into any cracks or imperfections in my lips and was very unforgiving.It wore off way too fast. I only found the blush staying on for a few hours and on the lips, it had maybe an hour tops.The bottom line is, if you need a beauty product that can guarantee speedy blush + lip color on the go, this is a great product. I would personally recommend a Pocket Pal or a Posie Pal for that purpose because I find the stains are much more natural looking and more versatile when it comes to easy layering and long wear. I did return this product - it was the first Benefit product I ever had to let go because I found the use was far too limited to be worth keeping. I was a little sad to see something so sleek and beautiful leaving my makeup bag, but it was for the best! « less

Best Benefit Tint yet for fair skin!

I have always been a fan of benetint, but sometimes in the winter I find it can be a little too dark for my very fair, rosy, freckled skin and this summer I had been feeling at times it was just a little too red. The posy tint, on the other hand, has always been too PINK for my taste, even if it's not a bad choice for my complexion. It's just a little bubble gum for my style. I agree w/ others that initially the color in the bottle seemed questionable, but on my cheeks, it is the perfect peachy orangey with a hint of pink flush. The color is also great on my lips, but seems to be a little less translucent than the benetint and peachy colors always highlight any dryness on my lips so I need to make sure i combine it w/ a good balm before and after to make sure it doesn't look chalky. I think the posytint has a similar texture that's a little more creamy than the liquid classic benetint. Now if I could just get my hand on a mini version for my purse or the combo tint/gloss product that's sold w/ benetint in it! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-5515851676354103604-full" data-show="-5515851676354103604-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Love it!

I'm a big fan of Benefit's liquid stains in a bottle, but Lollitint is hands down my favorite! This bright orchid color is so flattering on my fair, neutral toned skin. I use this on both lips and cheeks. On lips, I brush it right on, wait a few minutes for it to completely dry, then top with a clear lip balm. I don't find it drying at all. On cheeks, I use a normal blush brush to grab some Lollitint and quickly brush it onto my cheeks using light, feathery cross-hatched strokes. This way, I get no streaking and the color stays put. The formula is most similar to Posietint, where it's a creamy, milky consistency that doesn't sink in right away, so you have more time for blending. It sinks in faster than Posietint on my lips and results in a more pigmented look. You can use a sheer layer for a soft flush of color or really build it up. The color is different enough from Posietint that I think it's worth it to get Lollitint even if you have Posietint--especially if you crave purply blushes and lipcolors like me!

I’m looking for a lip stain or something similar to wear to school everyday. I’d want it to be more on the sheer side, long lasting, hydrating, and not too expensive. I’m fine with matte. Any recommendations? For reference, I prefer the no-makeup makeup look (concealer, setting powder, mascara, lip product)

What’s the best lip product (balm, lipstick) that’s natural and hydrating? It doesn’t have to be long lasting, something like a sheer/slight tint to add color to your lips so you don’t look like a ghost! Thank you!

I really like the Benefit Lip & Cheek Stain (which as of now there are 5 colors to choose from, $18 for 6mL or $30 for 10mL). Just the mini one has lasted me several months. It dries pretty quickly and has a dewy sort of finish and i would say it’s long lasting. Not SUPER cheap but definitely a good buy!
