Product Review; "Benefit Cosmetics Bene-tint"
Originally developed to make an exotic dancers nipples look pinker and more inviting, this lightweight almost water-like formula does triple duty as a lip and cheek stain.
Benetint stain comes in a glass bottle with a nail-polish like applicator wand that applies to pretty much any part of the face you want to seem more flush and alive. The most comon areas being the lips, cheeks and nipples (?), I decided to get a little adventurous and do a dab above eyebrows and even mix with a bit of moisturizer for duller complexions. If you've got the ingenuity, this product can become very versatile as it's chemistry is incredibly maleable and has almost no density on skin. Applied and blended quickly on moisturized skin looks like a pinch of color and wears all day without fading.
Since Benefit Cosmetics offers the product specifically for staining, it's perfect under a sheer foundation or lipstick as it creates a bit more depth and dimension. Used almost like a primer, this product gives the illusion of having warm, bright, enticing skin. Use anywhere you want to invite attention.
Benefit Cosmetics Benetint; $28.00
