Benefit Posietint

I received a bottle of Benefit’s Posietint last Christmas, and I’m finally getting around to reviewing it! I've been a long time fan of Benefit’s High Beam, and I wanted to try out a few of their other products. Posietint is housed in the same sort of bottle as High Beam. The bottle is very reminiscent of a nail polish bottle, with a skinny brush applicator.


Posietint is a multi-purpose product that you can either use as a lip or cheek stain. I've always only used it on my cheeks as a blush. Benefit’s Benetint is one of their most famous products, but I've never tried it out. Benetint is a red stain, whereas Posietint is a light pink stain. I've tried applying Posietint in a few different ways, and unfortunately I haven’t had much success with this product.


Benefit is one of my favourite beauty brands, so I had such high hopes for Posietint. However, I find that this stain is very, very light, and usually doesn't show up at all on my cheeks. The liquid seems fairly pigmented in the bottle, but once you blend it into your cheeks, the colour almost all but disappears. I've tried layering on the product, up to 5 layers, but then I find that my cheeks feel somewhat sticky, and there still isn't great colour pay off.


If you've tried Benefit’s Posietint, and had better results than I've had, please let me know how you apply it! I really wanted to love this product, but it just left me wanting more. I might start trying to use this on my lips, since I don’t want the product to go to waste. Posietint might also act as a great base to apply similar powder blushes over top of, so I still do need to play around with is a bit!

Benefit's Posietint retails for $36 CAD, and can be bought at Sephora (link), Shopper's Drug Mart, Murale, or from Benefit online
