Benefit’s range of delicate lip and cheek stains are some of the most successful product launches of recent times. It all started with the cult red Benetint that I can remember buying as a student and being told it would revolutionise my makeup routine. It did. Ten years later and not only have they expanded the line to include three more lip and cheek stains (the pink-purple Lolli Tint, delicate pink Posie Tint and peachy Cha Cha Tint,) but they’ve also added a collection of complementary balm tints for lips to ensure every look is effortlessly beautiful.
Their Lip Balm Hydrators are available in four different shades, all containing hydrating ingredients to leave lips looking and feeling super soft. It’s often suggested that wearing the same shade on your lips and cheeks can ensure a cohesive and more natural makeup finish (as hues aren’t competing with eachother,) so Benefit are simply making the whole process even simpler. Packaged in matching cases to their cheek stain counterparts, all four lip colours provide just a hint of colour for a super natural finish. They’re extremely pleasant to use and provide just a hint of sweet scent to the lips; although they’re essentially glorified and very expensive lip balms, there’s something a little luxurious and aspirational about them. I’ve no doubt these will fly off the shelves and into some Benefit addict’s makeup bag… Even with the £14.50 price tag!
The Benefit Lip Balm Hydrators are available online and in boutiques priced £14.50 each.
