I have a curse, where I must buy all new products that Benefit comes out with (well, more like just a curse for my wallet). I’m a huge fan of their cult classic product Benetint, as well as its poppy-pink sister Posietint, so naturally I had to give Cha Cha Tint a go. It’s the perfect addition to the family that we’ve been waiting for because we all know how hot coral shades have been lately!
This liquidy-gel stain is an orange-coral shade, and works great on both cheeks and lips. I actually find it looks a bit more ‘pink’ on the skin, which is much more flattering then the bright, scary orange hue it looks like in the bottle. I’ve never been a HUGE fan of the nail polish-type applicator, but since the texture is a little more forgiving (similar to Posietint rather than Benetint), it’s really not all that bad. Work quickly and in light layers and you’ll have bright, glory cheeks and lips from morning til night.
It is a tad expensive, but there’s not other blush out there that will outlast this…so if you’re on the hunt for a full 12-hour glow, this is it right here. I definitely think it is my favorite out of the 3 lip and cheek stains from Benefit because of its creamy texture and gorgeous shade. I even wore it on my lips a few times at New York Fashion Week and not only did it last throughout the long days, but I also managed to get quite a few compliments on it!
