Things I Love – Benetint

Rosey cheeks for all!

Sometimes I am asked what kind of makeup I wear. Truth is, I switch it around a lot but I do have a few staples. One of those is Benetint. This cheek stain is perfect for every complexion. A product originally used for strippers to make other areas more, ahem, “rosey”, Benetint is A) easy to apply and B) a great addition to a quick makeup routine. I have a pretty pale, boring skin tone. I always feel like I need some color. I just do 2 Xs of Benetint on my cheeks and BAM…instant color. I also use it as lip tint when I want some more color there. Then just put on chapstick or gloss.

Now you may say “WHOA that shiz is expensive, B!” and to that I say…yes..BUT it lasts for a LONG time.  I wouldn’t be overstating to say you might could go a year with 1 bottle.  Especially if you don’t use it everyday. I think I have bought 2 bottles…ever. And I was introduced to it before my wedding in 2005!

Now I am planning to have a makeup vlog at some point when I have time but I did find this lovely Brit giving a tutorial on how to apply it...so enjoy!

I also recommend Benefit as a cosmetic line.  I love a lot of their stuff…I just can’t pay department store prices all the time.  A few other staples I keep by them are High Beam, Dandelion and plum mascara (i’m out…and poor).

See..this was a Benefit counter creation.  Love them so much I went to the mall ON MY WEDDING DAY to get them to do it.

Too bad they couldn't tame the frizz

  1. Is there a Benefit counter locally? Or – how do you know what to order online – like how do I guess what shade I am, etc? I feel like I am darker toned than you – but I really have no clue… it looks like nice stuff and you always have pretty skin!

    • All the dept stores carry it and Ulta now does! But it is just one shade. It is magical and just works for everyone. Just start with a little and add more. That video does a good job explaining it. And thank you 🙂

  2. I did watch the video… I should have clarified… I need foundation kind of stuff! so thus the shade question 🙂 I am a bit weirded out about going into those places and asking for help though.
