Review: Benefit's Lollitint

I'm a fan of Benefit but I've never tried any of their cheek and lip tints. I decided this had to change and after much deliberation over which shade to go for, I eventually bought Lollitint. I chose this one because it's not a shade I would usually go for as I tend to steer away from any makeup that is barbie pink coloured. However I think this may have changed my mind on the whole barbie pink look!

I absolutely love the packaging. It's so cute, yet so easy to carry around too! I love the bright pink and white combination and it's very clear to tell that it's a Benefit product! Having never used one of their tints before I wasn't sure what to expect on the application side of things. However having a brush like a nail varnish is actually really handy to dot the product onto your cheeks before blending with a brush! I've still not mastered the best way to apply to lips and every time I have so far, I've done it differently. Although I'm definitely not a fan of using the brush included. 

The colour payoff is really good and I like the fact that it's buildable so you can use a tiny amount for a subtle flush or build it up for a more vibrant pop of colour. Although like many others have warned about this product, you do have to work relatively quickly as it does stain. 

I absolutely love the colour this gives to my cheeks as although it's bright it actually gives my pale skin quite a natural flush. I'm never going to build this product up too much as bright pink cheeks with my pale skin is definitely not a good look! I love that it's not a sticky product too and it doesn't leave my skin at all tacky. 

I also love the colour on my lips. However I'm not sure I would wear this on my lips and my cheeks at the same time as I think it's a bit too much for me! I'm also not a fan of the smell/taste of this product. I didn't taste it intentionally but when applying it I find you get the taste of the product even when it's near your lips. I don't know if that makes sense to you or if any of you have experienced this? But it does give a lovely tint to the lips and I'm surprised that the tint lasts for so long before wearing off.

Overall I'm really pleased I bought Lollitint both colour-wise and for the product itself. I definitely can't compare it to any other cheek and lip products I own and I'm definitely going to get a lot of use out of it. 

Have you tried Lollitint? Or any of the other tints? Which one is your favourite?
