Benetint, by Benefit cosmetics, is one of many cult makeup products that I've meaning to try for ages. It claims to be "the original and still the best rose-colored cheek and lip tint. Kiss-proof and water-proof, this indelibly sheer tint gives you an innocent, yet provocative glow that will keep everyone guessing "what has she been up to?"
First impressions: it comes in what resembles a nail polish bottle, and I quite liked feeling I was being naughty and applying nailpolish to my face. I only hope that my clumsy self doesn't somehow knock this bottle over onto the bathroom tiles!
I decided to test it by applying it first to my hand (as I was already wearing makeup yesterday) and applied it in stripes to my wrist, also thinking to myself that it would be handy for Halloween makeup effects later in the year! When I woke up this morning, after washing up and washing my hands numerous times, the stripes were still there on my wrist- so it's definitely a hard wearing product. It was perfect this morning to create a natural, easy weekend glow.
I haven't tried it on my lips yet, but from what I can tell so far this is a cult beauty product for a reason- definitely a must-have for any respectful makeup bag!
