Review: Unfortunately for me, I found Benetint very messy and it really is a stain so you need to work it into the cheeks quickly, otherwise your skin will just look ruddy. The colour is way too bright and pigmented for me and always seems to makes me look clownish. Plus this colour only brings out the pink in my cheeks and makes it look worse, so for this reason I avoid this particular shade. Mind you I ADORE Posietint, its much more subtle sister product. I personally prefer to use a powder or cream blush for a more natural look with only a third of the mess involved.
