Benefit's Lollitint is Sweet
Benefit's Lollitint is the NEWest in a series of Benefit Tints (Bene Tint, Posie Tint, Cha Cha Tint and Lolli Tint). It's a light purple, liquid, lip & cheek stain. I swatched all the colors for you, so you could see the difference. All of them pretty much have the same consistency, except for Bene Tint. It's more liquidity and as you can see from my hand bleeds into fine lines. If you would like to see my review on Cha Cha Tint, click HERE (excuse my skin, gosh it's come a long way! HaHaHa)
Let's talk about the application of Benefit's Lollitint. It's tricky. Don't let the light color fool you! It's powerful and you don't need much. Too much and YOU WILL look like a clown. Dot & blend. Dot & blend. Look in the mirror and see how it's going. This is a STAIN and it STAYS ON! It STAYS on your cheeks, lips and may I add fingertips. HaHaHa It will LAUGH at your makeup remover! So be ready to have blush-colored cheeks for at least 2 days. What I did below, was add Lolli Tint to my bare face AND THEN applied my foundation (Urban Decay). As you can see it showed THROUGH my foundation (which gave me the look I was looking for). It did better underneath my foundation, than on top of it. I then applied the Lollitint to my lips. It showed up very nicely. It's a lovely purple. Surprisingly, it was a lot darker on my lips. I loved the overall look. It's FRESH! The color is very soft when applied correctly. So technique is crucial.
I had to show you the display at my local store (GIF on left) (it's a mirror & crystal...it's nice), but while I was on instagram I came across THIS cute Benefit Lollitint display (instagram picture credit: summmer21). Asian stores have the cutest displays! Balloons, Carnival & Hearts! There's even a heart on top of the Lollitint box. Why can't we have displays & packaging like that? LOL >.< Have you tried any of Benefit's Tint's? If so share your experience or story.
