Benefit Posietint: A Review and Photo

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.

Yay!!! I'm SO obsessed with Benetint, I've used it every day for years, on my lips AND cheeks. I bet this one will be just as fab. I'm signing up for the Sephora notification for sure!

I have whiter skin and dark hair though. I wonder how it would look on someone with a Liv Tyler-like complexion.

She's so cute. The color is really great on her fair skin and since mine is similar it would probably look nice. I am not a huge fan of benetint though. I find it hard to use even though I'm pretty good with makeup.

Oooh, this looks really good - BeneTint is too much of a hot pink on my skin, this could be a considerable improvement :-D

I think teamsugar may have removed my orginal post ( GreenSkittleGal saw it) because it had a link to my blog which was posted yesterday about Posietint, but it is avalible now in Benefit Botique's no need to wait on Sephora!

I will totally be getting this! I LOVED the Benetint sample sizes Sephora has been giving out. I love tiny makeup. I agree, having something more pink and less red would be ideal.

Pixigirl31, the best way to apply it is to draw on little "cat whiskers" on your cheeks — maybe a half-inch long or so. Right after drawing them on, just use your fingers to blend. I can do three stripes on one cheek before blending, but after that, it's tough because the color sets quickly. It's a lot easier with lips, in which case I often like to leave the color on so it looks "bitten." Hope this helps!
