Benefit Lollitint

You’ve seen Benefit’s lip and cheek stains before. The little bottles — they look just like nail polish — have become a cult favorite among beauty junkies and makeup artists alike thanks to user-friendly formulas and almost unparalleled lasting power. The first shade, Benetint, was developed when a stripper, ahem, exotic dancer, came to Benefit’s founders Jean and Jane Ford looking for something to enhance her nipples on stage. Benetint was born and it’s rose scent and bright red hue have been around ever since. Today, there are an array of colors which run the gamut from coral (Posietint) to peachy-orange (Cha Cha Tint), but the brand’s latest release, Lollitint ($30), is a bright, dare we say radiant orchid shade that not only highlights the Panton’s Color of the Year, but looks great on your cheeks and lips.

Just like Benefit’s range of lip and cheek stains, Lollitint is a brush-on formula that works on cheeks as a long-wearing stain as well as lips. And while the traditional Benetint is a loose, fluid formula, Lollitint has a creamier, more user-friendly formula that gives you a little more time to blend before it dries down. On cheeks, it gives a fresh, bright tint that is completely sans shimmer and lasts from dawn to dusk. On lips, it’s just as long lasting, but we recommend using a moisturizing balm underneath to keep your kisser comfortable while you wear your Lollitint. When dry, the formula is smudge-proof and smooch-proof. The release of the year? It’s still early, but we might just have a contender on our hands — or on our lips and cheeks.
