Another Benefit review for y'all. They seem to be my favourite brand of the moment. I love everything about their products, and surprisingly have never had a bad experience with any of the products. I had a funny feeling about "They're Real" before I really gave it a proper go, and now It's my favourite mascara (like the rest of the worlds!) If you missed my review you can view it HERE. Anyway on to the new product of the moment Lollitint, and gals it's right up my street!
Benefit have some fine tints, and I've been a huge fan of "Benetint" for donkey's years, ever since I purchased my first product "High Beam". It's been a love affair that's spanned 10 years so far! This shiny new product took the blogging world by storm, we all love a good tint! This new one is absolutely beautiful! I use it on my cheeks as opposed to my lips (I find it a little too drying on my lips, but with a bit of lip balm it works quite well!). I absolutely love the look it gives me on my cheeks. It gives me a nice fresh, healthy glow and I constantly get asked, what blush I'm wearing, when I rock it. Fun Fact, Benetint was actually invented for a stripper to get pinker nipples- who knew! Anyway, today I'm talking to you about the newest baby to the tint family Lolli-tint.
Pink to make the Boys Wink, or Sian wink! As everything pink I'm immediately gravitated towards, cliche or wha? I'm such a typical girly girl! Like all Benefit packaging it's so blooming cute. Pink and with polka dots on. I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but I judged this straight away and had crazy high hopes for it. I'm a really pink blusher kinda gal. If I could choose one product (excluding me brows, as let's face it I'm going no where without them) It would have to be blushes. They make me come alive, and more importantly look as fresh as a daisy, even when I'm not. I dip into coral tones every now and again but the majority of the times I choose a nice pink. Pink gives you more of a pretty, romantic healthy glow. When I first swatched this, I knew immediately it would be perfect on my cheeks.
I tried it on my cheeks, and I absolutely loved it. Nearly as much as Benetint, and I really do love Benetint. It will always hold a special place in my heart! As I've mentioned It's a lot more candy pink then Benetint, which I'd say is more rose toned, where this is a lovely orchid colour. After using it a lot more on my lips It really is more hydrating, so if you're like me you find Benetint a bit drying on your lips, give this one a shot. Although I still recommend wearing a bit of lip balm before you apply it. as if your lips are like mine they're constantly dry. which is a real plus. It can be built up to give you your desired colour, or left just to lightly tint your lips, if you're going for a more natural look. It also looks gorgeous with a nice clear lipgloss over it, for a real WOW factor. I love multi-use products like these, as lets face it girls, these tints aren't cheap. They do last for what seems forever though, so you won't need to repurchase this over, and over, and over again as a little does go a long way.
I've been using this religiously since I got it a couple of weeks ago, and it's safe to say I'm in love. I love everything from the colour to the consistency. Like all tints, it's quite watery, but the colour that it leaves is fantastic. When I first swatched I was a bit worried about the colour pay off. I've been using this as a blush for a couple of weeks now, and it lasts at least 12 hours on my face - which is perfect for me, as I hate lugging around all my makeup on a daily basis! My bags always seems to be jam packed, and I'm always puzzled to what's making them so heavy, so I really don't need extra things to carry. When I use it on my lips, it lasts about 4 hours so, it's still a pretty durable product, considering most of my lip products last about an hour on my lips! Like I've mentioned before I would recommend using lip balm under it to keep your lips soft and subtle.
Benefit "Lollitint"* €34.50
As you can see it's a gorgeous orchid colour when swatched(Colour of the year, dont'cha know) Once on my cheeks though I'd say it's more of a candy pink! It's extremely easy to work with, and I know it's going to be my go to blush for this Spring/Summer! Over all I'd say it's worth the €34.50, for two reasons. The colour is absolutely blooming beautiful, and it lasts for absolutely ages, so you're not going to be running of it any time soon. Definitely a product you should invest in!
