A cheeky trio from Benefit.

Sara: I have long been a fan of Tarte’s cheek stain, but I know you picked up the Benefit Feelin’ Cheeky! Minis trio awhile ago and loved it. So when I was in Sephora this past weekend, I had to grab it. I think I have found my new fav products! Not only are they the perfect pink or rosie shade, but they’re also incredibly fun to use. I haven’t tried the High Beam illuminator yet, have you?

Ashley: Yeah, I know Benetint has been around forever, and I don’t know why, but I’ve never had the urge to try the tints. Maybe cause I’ve always been loyal to Tarte. But, you know it’s so easy to get suckered into those products they have in the checkout line at Sephora. That’s where I saw the Cheeky set and I thought it was a good way to try all three products: Benetint, Posietint, and High Beam. I don’t use High Beam as much as the other two…depends on my mood. I also like to use it under the arch of my eyebrows…but only when they’re plucked. Which let’s be honest, it’s not as often as it should be.

Sara: Those products in the checkout line get me every time, too! Especially on a busy Saturday afternoon when the line is a little long…I always tell myself its more Beauty Insider points on my card! I have also known about Benetint for years, and never really gave it a second look. Every time I pick out a new Tarte stain (yes, I have several) the Sephora beauty consultant tells me how great it works as a lip stain. If you aren’t picky about the taste, then I would agree, but I have never been able to get past the taste to actually use it on my lips. The Benetint’s double as a lip stain as well, but without the bitter taste!

Ashley: I know, this is a seriously versatile set! And they definitely last most of the day as a cheek stain, so that’s a bonus! Plus the small sizes are great to travel with or throw in your bag for a mid-day touch up. Overall, I’m very confused as to why I never tried these sooner!

    I recently bought the primer (pore minimizer) which I love as well as the High Beam and the tint. I am not crazy about the tint/gloss on my lips. What do you think of it?

      Hi Nancy! Thanks for commenting :) I don't love the regular tint on my lips cause its a bit too dark for me, but I do like the Posietint! Although it doesn't last as long on the lips as it does on the cheeks. I'll have to try the primer!
