Review: Benefit Posietint
Where to buy?: Sephora, Ulta, Benefit counters (in some macys) and if you're lucky to live close by a Benefit store.
What Benefit says: Benefit's Posietint is a petal-pink stain that plants a kiss of see-through tint on cheeks and lips. With hours of smudge-proof, just-picked perfection, you'll be the prettiest bloom in the bunch!
I had this cheek/lip stain for almost a year the same time I purchase Benetint and I have to say this is also my favorite cheek stain. Similar to Benetint it can be use as a lip or cheek stain and I had use it in both ways.
As a lip stain it gives a healthy pink color to my lips but can be very drying so a lip balm after application is a must. As a cheek stain it looks very nice on people with light-medium skin tones, it gives a nice light pink color on the cheeks.
Similar to Benetint it dries very fast so you would have to be quick on application otherwise it'll leave streaks on the cheek. The formula is a little thicker and it leaves a matte finish.
The staying power on the lips are OK, it will eventually fade when eating or drinking, however, on the cheeks its fantastic I wore it a whole day many times and it never faded on me by the end.
Comparing it to Benetint I like Posietint a lot better only because I can wear this color on the lips because its pink, I'm not bold enough to wear red lip colors in public :[
Would I buy this again?: Definitely yes
