Have wasted money and time on these products in the past few years - as others have said, it either left dots / stripes depending on how it was applied, or ruined my foundation. Found it to be FAR too expensive for what it was!! Also found that it seemed to cause spots on my cheeks after wearing it.
Solution - The Body Shop lip and cheek tint - totally amazing, half the price, lovely colour, no dots / stripes, leaves foundation perfect, doesnt give me spots and there are regular discount codes / 02 priority moments available so it's an all around win!!
I love my benetint..I use the cha cha colour and apply with a stipple brush , i have two one for my foundation and a cheaper one for the blush. I put a bit on my hand , dab brush on and apply quickly to cheeks.I apply after foundation but tbh I don't apply that much foundation , I use YSL.
I love it cos it stays on all day ..have tried numerous top end blushes that look great initially but disappear after a few hrs
I love benetint. Use the brush it comes with and put a couple of lines on and then quickly SMOOTH it over, not rub. I do it after I've done everything else as then my foundation has had a chance to sink in and 'settle'.
I found the superdrug version too intense and it left lines/dots no matter how quickly I tried to smooth it!
I love Benetint. The Body Shop one is nicer for lips than Benetint but for cheeks, I prefer Benetint.
I just put my foundation on with my fingers (no stippling here) then use the brush in the Benetint to put a splodge about the size of a pea on each cheek and just make circles with my finger to blend it.
I only use a tinted foundation so can't comment on how it effects properly applied foundation, but in my (limited) experience, nothing lasts as long as Benetint. I suppose its all in the mind but I realised on the way home last night that I had left my make up bag in my desk (with my benetint) and I'm not back in the office until Wednesday. I seriously thought about turning round (and missing my children's concert) I was so devastated ! I feel naked without it!!
I didn't turn round but I hopped over the Superdrug today to buy the copy - pretty much the same (and as long lasting so far) but I found I did need to move pretty sharpish to stop it looking stripey!
