AMW Reviews: Benefit Posietint

*SNOOZE* Whoever invented this deserves an award!

The extra 5 minutes, turned 10 minutes turned 15 minutes is such a luxury on "bed weather" that we have for the past few days!  Who would want to spend 30 minutes to do their own makeup when they can use this precious time to sleep?  

No wonder multi-tasking products are on the wave in the market!  One of the most loved multi-tasking product to date?  Lip & cheek tint! 

I'm not fond of lip and cheek tints because most of the time, the formula are quite drying, I have a sample of Benefit's Posietint from Benefit To Go Bestseller lying around my make-up case that I've only decided to use a month ago!

This kiss of see-through poppy-pink tint brightens cheeks and lips.  Liqui-gel formula blends to just-picked perfection on all complexions and lasts for hours.Liqui-gel formula blends to just-picked perfection on all complexions and lasts for hours.
Size: 12.5ml

AMW says ---
  • Subtle shade that looks like you don't have any blush on!
  • Easy to blend
  • Build-able shade.
  • Stays the whole day!  
  • Gives a nice, subtle inner glow.
  • Also works as a blush base to make your powder blush last longer!
  • Can be removed easily with make-up remover.
  • A lot of people dislike the packaging, I think the brush is fine with me but it's hard to reach out for product especially if 1/4 of the product is left.
  • Will not show up much on people with darker skin color.
  • The brand is not available locally, have to search for resellers.
  • Difficult to match left and right cheeks if you're a first time user.
I know how most of our blush tends to disappear before the morning ends!  This is a no-fuss blush that stays the whole day!  Subtle is the key word!  So if you are into dark colored blushes, stay away from this product!

  • If you plan to use this both on your lips and cheeks, do not use the brush straight from the packaging for hygiene purposes.
  • As Cheek Tint: apply using your fingers or stippling brush.
  • For barely there inner glow: Approximately 3 brush strokes.
  • For a hint of baby pink shade: use approximately 5-6 brush strokes.
  • For heavier pigmentation: save up your Posietint and top this tint with a matching powder blush.
  • If you like using the brush that comes with the packaging, I suggest to wash it on a weekly basis to prevent bacteria buildup!
  • Apply this last!  Apply whatever liquid or powder foundation you normally do, then you apply the Posietint, if you have oily skin, you can set with a translucent setting powder, if you have dry skin, leave it as it is as it gives a nice, dewy glow!
  • If you have pimples or acne marks on your cheeks, make sure to cover the area with concealer and foundation before you apply this Tint.  Use a brush with a stippling motion so you won't remove the foundation and concealer!
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Blush addicts! Anyone who wishes to have a permanent blush tattooed on their cheeks! *hahahaha* Just joking!

Where to purchase and how much?
If you plan to travel or have friends who will be going to Hong Kong or Singapore etc...  ask them to help you purchase.  For those who are willing to go online shopping, there are a lot of sites selling these! :)

Benefit Posietint 
applied at the back of my hand with 2 brush strokes
Color is exactly the same in person

Gently blend the Posietint 
and a nice light pink shade will show up

Applied on lips
It doesn't show up much as my lips are already pigmented

3 brush strokes --- the best to create a natural blush 
on the apples of my cheeks

I want all the product to go on my cheeks, not on my fingers, 
so this is my favorite way to apply my Posietint!  
Stippling motion with foundation brush

Voila!  My natural-looking flush!

I haven't tried the famous Benefit's Benetint so I can't compare the 2 for now!
I have beauty blogger friends who prefers the Benetint over Posietint!

  1. I really love benetint. I haven't tried this one, i tried the red one :) but it's really a great line. benefit is such a great brand! :D

  2. I love this tint! It's so pretty!

  3. I love both Posietint and Benetint, but for practicality and ease of use, I prefer Posietint because of its gel-like consistency. Unlike Benetint, which is like water, there's always the risk of spillage. But, yeah, when you're down to the last bit of Posie, it's difficult to get. I just remove the plastic thingie on top of the bottle's "mouth" and use a plastic stirrer to get the tint.

  4. omg sis! can't believe it! i just put up chacha tint on my blog and you did this! ! ! :O :O :O

  5. awww benefit, sosi ☺♥
    the lioele blooming pop tint is almost eggzakleee the same as this ♥

  6. haven't tried any tint from benefit yet but if ever i will try one, i'd go for posie tint nga!

    it loos great on you,sweets!

    hindi ba mahirap tanggalin?

  7. I heard from another blog they also had a highlighter : D So if you ever get benetint one day maybe you can try that out too? I heard they were selling these tiny bottle size types.

  8. Great review! I love wearing cream blush for long wear

  9. Ooh, you finally decided to give it a try and it looks really pretty on you! :P I love Posietint over Benetint though. Happy weekend, Nikki. :)

  10. That's a beautiful tint, thanks for the review.

  11. I heard so much about Posietint... it really does give a natural flush.. it's perfect for a no makeup, makeup look! Awesome review!

  12. it looks really good on you and thanks for the tip on how to apply it. i hate using my hands, too.

  13. Thanks! I must check this out! I'm with you - I always apply watery formulations with a stippling brush. Great look.

  14. it looks like Etude House Fresh cherry tint in #2 shade cherry pink. I ilke it =)

  15. ohhhh thanks for the stippling tip! i usually just dab and blend with my fingers cause, well, i'm damn lazy lol

  16. It looks really good on you! :)

  17. @Kumiko Mae Because of this, I want to try the Benetint!!!

  18. @makeupbyjem Agree, very nice, subtle shade! looks so girly!

  19. @TPS Thanks for the tip! That's why I find using Posietint quite easy because of its gel-like texture!

  20. @xin *high five* sisters from different parents!

  21. @Marge Sosi ka diyan? SAMPLE size nga eh! hahaha Really? I guess there's a lot of dupe out there, I think the Body Shop one also looks like this shade, the limited edition one!

  22. @~tHiAmErE~ Nope, not difficult at all, use it with regular makeup remover! or in my case, the cleansing oil :D

  23. @katatonik I think I have the highlighter one and yes, it's the same sample size as the Posietint :) I like it It does give me the well deserved glow!

  24. @Mrs.Zeus I tend to just pick up powder blush in the morning because I'm always on the rush, but if I know i'll be attending a party or event, yup! I'd go for cream blushes :D

  25. @Pammy OO! I've had it forever, I just don't want to open any if I don't plan to use!

  26. @Hollie The only problem with this is that it won't show up to some skin color but overall, it's a wonderful product!

  27. @Jackie Glad to help! I hate having tint on my fingers!

  28. @Lina Kim ♥ Ahhh cheaper alternative and available locally! thanks for sharing your find! Will take a look at it if I visit the store :D

  29. @Mona You're so cute, I'm damn lazy too so I like using the brush so I won't need to clean my fingers :D (now that souunds...gross?) :P
