Those of you who love Benefit's cult-favorite lip and cheek stain, Benetint, will be excited to know about Posietint ($28). Like its big sister Benetint, Posietint is a liquid stain that goes on with a brush. The difference is that instead of giving a reddish flush to lips and cheeks, Posietint gives a sheer pink wash of color. When you see it, you'll understand why it's not packaged in a clear bottle; the stain is the color of Pepto Bismol. Never fear, though: when it's blended into skin, it looks like a natural flush of color.
To see how Posietint looks when it's on cheeks,
I snagged a bottle of Posietint to try out, so I asked my friend Allie to be a model. She is one of those gorgeous women whose skin looks like it's never seen a blackhead in its life. I applied a few small swipes of Posietint on the apples of her cheeks, then blended them using my fingers. The result: A totally natural-looking burst of pink. I think Allie looks like the quintessential English beauty here — all creamy complexion and rosy cheeks.
