Unless you been living under a rock for the past few years, you've likely heard of Benefit's best-selling, award-winning lip and cheek stain called Benetint. This red rose-colored liquid creates a natural, healthy-looking flush to whatever it touches. Its popularity has spawned many other products like Pocket-Pal, a smaller version of the tint with a clear lip gloss, Posietint, a brighter and sheer pink tint and Benetint Lip Balm ($20) a deep pink, non-sticky and light lip balm that has recently been updated to include SPF 15.
I've been dying to check this out for ages, and this past weekend, I played around with the petite pot. The texture is delicate, smooth, ever-so-slightly waxy, but mostly creamy and refreshing. This has a lot do with the fact that it contains not only Vitamin E and other emollients but also real rose petals that give it a signature sweet and girly fragrance.
It can be worn alone (it looks way lighter on than the original tint does), or you can wear it over or under your favorite lipstick to make it appear more sheer. Lip balms are a great love of mine, and I'm happy to add this one to my list.
