Ring-a-ring o’ roses,
A pocket full of posies,
We all fall down.
Ring-a-ring o’ roses,
My pocket is full of posietint,
I have fallen in love with it.
Poisetint ( Popping Pink ) , Cha Cha Tint ( Coral) and Benetint – (Hot Red)
Although I wanted all 3 of them (greedy me) I narrowed it to Poisetint for now.
It is pop pink tint in a cute nail polish like bottle. Although it is light pink color in the bottle but on application leaves this beautiful flush of bright popping pink on the cheeks and lips.
When I say bright popping pink it isn’t fuchsia or dark pink. It’s petal pink to give the right pop and the flush of color. It leaves a see through or transparent color. The texture of the liquid is smooth liquid. Almost like nail polish minus the stickiness.
Benefit Posietint Lip And Cheek Stain Swatches:-
All you need one – two streaks on each cheek and a couple of streaks on the lips. Like the name says it’s a tint, it appears like a stain doesn’t look like make-up. It great for daily /casual use or can be worn below your lip color or blush. Over the day if the lipstick or blush wears off you have this tint to your saviour. I prefer it as it is coz I don’t have to think of makeup then. It’s so so light on the skin, you can’t feel it at all. It’s so natural, it’s you. Doesn’t dry you out.
The tint lasts for a good 7-8 hours. It doesn’t budge at all. In fact it’s so tinted, if not dabbed quickly after application of the streak, the streak is visible. So I suggest its one cheek at a time followed by the lips. I put this to test of longitivity. When I wanted to take it off my face instead of cleaning it with cleanser, I washed it with my regular facewash. Trust me; although the cheek stain was washed away, I need to give my lips a good scrub before the tint came off.
Now you know how much I love you all. I put my products through lots of test before I would recommend it to you all . Muuaaahhhaa Muaaahhhaaa….
What I like about Benefit Posietint Lip & Cheek Stain:-
- How’s its light on the skin.
- I don’t have to think before application. Goes on every damn thing.
- Everything else that I have missed out.
- It’s a cult multipurpose product.
What I don’t like about BENEFIT Posietint Lip and Cheek Stain:-
Nothing other than availability. I would not say Price because is comparatively cheaper than a MAC Lipstick and Blush put together. Plus I need so little of it. This will practically last me for ages.
This is how it looks on me:
I have not used any foundation, only Garnier BB Cream, so that you may get the exact idea of how natural this shade looks. Excuse me for the shining nose and cheeks. It’s so damn humid in Mumbai these days. I was constantly sweating. BTW this pic was taken about 3 hours after application.
Overall rating: 5/5
Price: USD 32 (Its USD 30 online but I had to pay for the taxes coz it was bought from Macy’s)
Where I got it from: Macy’s – San Francisco, California, USA
Another killer review coming up soon. Here is the sneak peak . Guess what is it?
