Benetint Review, Tinted Lip Balm, and Pocket Pal Lip Gloss Duo

 Benetint Review, Tinted Lip Balm, and Pocket Pal Lip Gloss Duo

Benefit Benetint Pocket Pal

A horrible thing happened a few weeks ago. The cap on my beloved Benefit benetint Benetint Review, Tinted Lip Balm, and Pocket Pal Lip Gloss Duo broke. I dropped it and now it is chipped and won’t stay shut. Since it is a staining liquid, I can’t let it spill all over. So it is now carefully sitting on a shelf in a plastic baggie just in case it tips.

If you have never tried Benetint, it is a liquid cheek and lip stain. Although the color appears as a rather intimidating dark red in the bottle, if applied lightly, it goes on as a nice light rose that gives a natural and long lasting flushed look. I adore the stuff as a cheek stain, especially on days when I want to wear just a bit of makeup or want a really natural look. I also like it for when I want a long wearing look. Use of the product takes some caution. It dries quickly, so I find that the time for blending it is limited. That means two things: (1) don’t put too much on to start, and (2) blend quickly! My trick is to dot a bit on and blend it quickly, then dot on a bit more and blend again until I have the amount of color that I want. I have pale skin, so I use very little. People with darker skin would likely want to use more to build up the color, but I recommend building it slowly. It can darken up pretty fast and it is easier to add color than it is to remove it.

Benetint also makes a great lip stain. Instead of going for a long wearing lipstick which can be sticky, I prefer to put on some Benetint, let it dry, and then cover it with benetint lip balm Benetint Review, Tinted Lip Balm, and Pocket Pal Lip Gloss Duo. The tinted balm is also fairly nice by itself, providing decent moisture and a light rose/red sheer tint to the lips. As with the stain, the gloss looks darker in the jar than it really is on the lips. A downside of the tinted balm though is that the color does not last particularly long when used alone.

So what to do about my broken bottle? Well I think I have found the answer. I came across the Benefit Pocket Pal (pictured) which has the Benetint stain in one end and a clear gloss in the other. I think I will order this and then refill the stain from time to time from my carefully stored broken bottle. Yes, I could just go find some sort of new container or replace the whole bottle, but this way seems more fun!
