Benetint - 21-06-2015 by

Benetint is very easy and quick to use and the colour is very pretty

Pretty! - 13-08-2014 by

This is amazing! I received a sample and will definitely purchase the full size. I was always hesitant about this blush because of the intense colour, however when you rub it in it looks totally natural. It gives you a beautiful flush to your cheeks and it lasts all day. It definitely is not over the top or "clown-like".

Wouldn't be without it. Love it. - 05-10-2013 by

I have only just recently tried Benetint and I cannot express how much I love it! I was hesitant at first due to it looking so scary dark in the bottle and based on my previous (rather messy) experiences with stains, but this product is not like that at all. It starts off as such a subtle hint of colour that really is a beautiful natural glow. And then you simply build it up to the shade you want if you are after something more. The bottle with the little brush makes it easy-peasy to apply and I imagine it will last an incredibly long time based on how much (or rather how little) I have used up so far. I do find it feels a little dry on my lips by itself so I add a gloss or topcoat for moisture, but I will never be without this product. I have never before come across such a lovely colour and so versatile!

Great product, especially for fair skin! - 09-01-2013 by

I honestly couldn't live without this stuff! I use it for both my lips and cheeks, although be warned you have to work fast if using it as a blush (being a stain, it dries quickly). I apply a couple of coats to my lips and follow up with my trusty Nivea lip balm, since this product does tend to be drying. But that's a small price to pay for gorgeous, natural-looking rose-tinted lips, right? Right!
And to all the fair-skinned ladies out there - do not worry about this product appearing dark in the bottle, it works wonderfully on fair skin and comes out as the ideal shade for a cheek tint! I imagine you would need more coats if you had medium or olive skin, but no doubt Benetint would still work for you (from what I've seen, it's pretty universal). I'd definitely recommend this product!
P.S. Yes, it's a tad pricey; but you don't need much, so it lasts forever!

Gorgeous just kissed flushed look! - 18-10-2012 by

Love this product. By far the best cheek tint/stain out there. Great with bronzer for an all over easy natural look and whiter looking teeth! Can't live without it. Apply more for more color. Gorgeous! If you like stains you will LOVE Benetint!

Amazing Product! - 28-11-2011 by

I received this product as a sample and immediately fell in love with it! The colour is natural looking and easily blendable. It looks amazing on its own, but often i used it as a base for blush which seems to give my cheeks colour all day. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone - it has quickly become one of the staple products in my makeup bag!

I love this tint! Such a nice natural blush - great for a natural make up look. Definitely worth getting

This is a great stain but the packaging lets it down. The brush is cheap and quite usless for blending. I just use it to brush on 2 small X's on my cheeks and then quickly blend with a small foundation type brush. I find if I try to blend with my finger I end up with a stained finger instead of cheeks. Benetint is also a great lip stain. You can get the pocketpal version or even the mini Benetint sample vial for your handbag and then just refill with the full size.

I approached this product with much hesitation as I am completely hopeless with putting any colour on my cheeks that involves anything other than a brush and powder. Emphasis on completely hopeless. However, much to my relief, this product was so easy to apply. Just a dab on the apples of the cheeks and some blending with your fingers and you will have a lovely soft touch of rose on your cheeks, and it will look so natural you will stop every time you walk past a mirror to admire it. Or maybe that is just me... I will definately purchase this product as it is such a wonderful one, plus it is also a great multi-use product that you can also use on your lips.

I need about 3 to 4 applications of this product before I can see a flush of colour on my olive skin. Smells nice.

I love using Benetint as a stain on my lips. I usually apply 2+ coats to my lips, followed by a clear lip gloss or balm. Benetint has got the most beautiful rose petal hue that lasts for many hours. It took me a long time to perfect the cheek application and I rarely use it for that purpose.

I was sent this as a sample from the wonderful people at Adore, thanks! And I love it!! Looking at the bottle I thought it would be too dark for my pale skin but the colour is such a pretty pink and it is easy to layer it to get the perfect colour. On cheeks it looks great on it's own or layering it with a powder blush. I think this is the most perfect pink stain for my lips that I have ever used. I do find it slightly drying but a swipe of clear gloss or lip balm over the top solves the problem. So thanks again Adore and I will definitely be purchasing the full sized product when my sample runs out.

I heart Benetint! It's the perfect Snow White cheek flush with rose petal lips. Yes, it is a stain, so you need to work quickly on the cheeks - I do one cheek at a time, I make a little X with the brush on the apple of my cheek and then quickly blend outwards. As a lip stain I apply two coats to dry lips, then put a gloss or balm over the top. Love love love.

The best lip stain, ever! The only thing I am not delighted with is how long the brush is on the applicator - makes it difficult to apply a perfect line on my lips, but it's a small price to pay for such a fab product! A great red tint which looks natural on the lips, and lasts well. Pop a bit of clear gloss over the top, and you're ready to go!

Unfortunately for me, I found Benetint very messy and it really is a stain so you need to work it into the cheeks quickly. I personally prefer to use a powder or cream blush for a more natural look with 1/3 of the mess involved.

- 20-07-2008 by

This is a cult product but was a little so-so for me. It can be difficult to apply so you need to move quickly. Very pretty on lips but can be drying, so I always apply a balm or gloss over the top.

Q & A
1 Question Ask a question
  • From Annie at 6/07/16 2:07 PM
    • Q: Can the tint be applied over foundation?
      Can the tint be then covered with a bronzer?
    • A: Hi Annie,

      Thanks for your product question. This tint certainly can be applied over foundation, for a natural flush. If you wanted to, you could then apply bronzer over the top, or in the same area as the tint, to warm the skin up.

      If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact our customer service team at, or by calling us on (03) 9486 7179.
