Here's a Sneak Peek at Benefit's Latest Stain, Chachatint

Benefit's latest liquid lip and cheek stain isn't out until June, but here's a sneak peek at Chachatint. Like its predecessors, Benetint and Posietint, Chachatint ($29) is a liquid stain applied with a brush. This time, though, the hue is a slightly shimmery mango; it's not quite coral, but closer to the orange family than its pink and red sister tints. See before-and-after pictures of Chachatint.

Here I am at left, looking highly alert and awake (and not at all sarcastic!) without makeup. I applied a few dots of Chachatint on both lips and cheeks, and the result is shown at right. Like all of Benefit's tints, this one requires fairly quick blending to ensure even color, but the end result looks natural. I love sneaky products that make it seem like I'm not wearing makeup, so this is going to be in my makeup kit come June and beyond.

Have you tried the smaller travel size of Benetint? Totally different packaging, and small enough to toss in your purse. GZO, your story of running out the door made me laugh. Such a funny visual. Tile wind up ok?

Miss80, sorry. I'm not a professional photographer, unfortunately, and am still learning how to use the lights we have here. Working on it.

I wish they would change the packaging - I had a benetint break in my makeup bag years ago and I'm always fearful that it will happen again.

i'm intrigued! I'm a huge coral fan when it comes to makeup. But I do wish you had the same lighting in both photos. It's hard to tell the difference when your skin isn't the same color in both photos :( M80M

I saw this in person and it was very pretty — nice and bright but without being in-your-face. Love it!

Bingbing, I drew a little X on each cheek to apply, then blended. Stains can be tricky because if you don't work quickly, the color won't go on evenly. Have you ever used a makeup sponge? Applying the color on the sponge, then dabbing it on cheeks might make things easier. And yep, Anon, the packaging is the same. I like it because it's small and doesn't take up a ton of space in my drawer. Believe it or not, I remember saving up to buy Benetint when it was $24. That was 11 years ago, of course.

Annie, did you just use the brush that comes with the bottle to blend? I've always had trouble applying liquid/cream blush evenly.
