I’m sure there will be some statistics out there testifying to the wonder of Benefit’s tint (if you laid all the Benetint owners end to end, they’d circle the moon 8 times kind of thing…) and I have to admit that it does sit among my all time favourite products. What’s not to like? It’s a proper tint that leaves a decent amount of colour while being easy to blend (but be quick) whether you use it straight onto bare skin or over foundation. It isn’t as good on cheeks as on lips in my view, but it’s not terrible – you will get a light lip stain that doesn’t disappear in two minutes or as soon as you look at a latte.
This one is called Gogo Tint and it’s joining the original Benetint, Lollitint, Posietint and Cha Cha Tint. It’s a cherry-ish colour (not a dark winey cherry but more those bright orange-scarlet ones that are often suspiciously shiny). Benetint history takes us back to 1977 when a dancer was looking for something to make her nipples more pink and a bespoke bottle was made up. It’s not recorded whether that customer is still dancing but I’m guessing she’d be surprised to see how many shades nipples could, in theory, now come in.
In the swatch I’ve done it as it comes out of the bottle and then a lighter amount blended with a brush. The only minus is that Gogo Tint is £25.50! When did these tints get so expensive? To lessen the blow, I’m linking HERE for free postage and a free gift (a passport cover – it’s not horrible) but the latter is only until 13th August.
