As far as lip and cheek tints go, I’ve been loyal to one brand for the past 6 years now so for me to try another product was a major feat in itself. Reds are always tough, for complexions like mine- earthy with strong yellow undertones, but the perfect red looks very flattering… once I manage to find it!
So I tried the Benetint Rose Red- a lovely warm red, but subtle and translucent. I found that it gave just the right amount of a ‘flush’ to the cheeks at first… like you’ve just done a head-stand. I’d say it’s perfect for a natural day look. For the lips, I had to work a little harder… I didn’t achieve my perfect red for a while but after a few strokes, a little smudging and light rubbing, I finally got what I was looking for. The beauty of this product, I found, lies in the fact that you can really experiment with the intensity of the color. My lips were happy with a bit of tweaking but I assume if your skin is lighter, you’d have it way easier, because the color would stand out more.
I was amazed to see the color still intact and my cheeks still plumped after my lunch break at work (I had first applied it in the morning). I didn’t have to touch-up at all- although the lips needed a quick swipe.
Apart from the Rose tint, I also happened to sample the mango hued tint called the ‘Cha Cha tint’ which is wonderfully intense and suited my complexion better than the red- I loved the warm, natural glow it gave me and the fact that it kept me blushing all day!
Definitely recommended if you’re looking for that perfect ‘red’ or a lovely natural glow this season.
