As you guys know, I am a big fan of Benefit products. They always have cute and innovatively packaged products - how could a girl resist? Today I am going to be talking about another one of my fave Benefit products which I repurchased earlier this year because I loved it so much.
As the name suggests, this is a rose coloured lip tint or a lip stain. According to the packaging it can also be used as a cheek stain but since the packaging makes it difficult to apply and blend on the cheeks, I tend to use it only on my lips. Either way, I like the fact that it has more than one use.
When I was younger, I never liked using lip stains as the colour pay off was always so fake looking, if you know what I mean. I was so happy when I finally stumbled upon a product which gives a lovely, natural looking hit of colour to your lips without going over the top.
I absolutely love the pretty pink colour that this product gives to the lips - it is my natural lip colour but better!
Even though there are some great aspects to this product, I am the first to admit that it does have its flaws. Firstly, the packaging is not very convenient or hygienic for that matter. Even though it looks cool, I am not a fan of the brush applicator that reminds me of a nail polish bottle. The bottle is also not very convenient to carry in my handbag as I get worried that it will spill at any moment.
Other than the packaging design flaws, I think that this is a fabulous little product. It lasts several hours after being applied on the lips without budging. I like to use it first thing in the morning especially on days when I am after a minimal makeup look - you just need a nice gloss or a lip balm on top and you are ready to go!
Overall, I love this product because it is so easy to use and has great lasting power. Like other Benefit products, it is on the pricey side, retailing at around $55.00 AUD at my local Myer but given that a 12.5ml bottle lasts a good while I think that it is not that bad if you can afford to splurge a little.
