Review Benefit Lollitint



Benefit Lollitint* £24.50

When ever Benefit release a new product I end up falling in love, I am a full on Benebabe and have yet to be disappointed by their products. Benefit's first ever product was Benetint (developed first as a nipple tint for an exotic dancer, oooo), and since then a range of other tints have been created in a lovely collection of shades. Lollitint is the newest addition to the line up and I have a feeling it's going to be a hit, I squealed for about an hour when this arrived at my door beautifully packaged with some sweets (that didn't last long)!

I am a sucker for Benefit packaging. It's just gorgeous! Always super cute and fun but still practical. Lollitint's packaging matches the shade of the tint, a beautiful orchid shade which I am pretty sure is the 'colour of 2014'! The bottle is like a big nail varnish, the brush is the perfect size for applying the tint.

Lollitint is described as being a 'candy-orchid' shade, it's the perfect shade for the transition from winter to spring (if it ever comes) and will look gorgeous all through summer. It definitely looks a bit scary when you first swatch it, it's quite lilac toned but still a universal shade that will flatter everyone. I am still pretty scared of blush as I am super pale so using this the first time was an experience! I was totally wrong to be scared as even on my near translucent skin this a stunning shade.

I like to apply Lollitint in three tiny stripes on the cheek before blending in with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush. It has a thin consistency and you have to work one cheek at a time as this dries very quickly, and when it's dry it's not going to budge. Benefit suggest blending Lollitint in with your fingers, but I prefer the brush so I avoid having stained fingers. This has an incredible staying power and bright pink fingers aren't the best look! Lollitint will last beautifully for a good 10 hours, it can be ever so slightly drying so applying this on top of moisturised skin before or after foundation will help to make it last all day. 

I have tried this on lips and am neutral on whether I like it, you need a few blotting and reapplying sessions to get an intense colour. If you have dry lips it clings unless you use a really good balm before and a gloss over the top. I just like to use this as a blush personally, but if you love the candy orchid shade it can be worth the effort for the lips as it is a gorgeous colour. 

My first venture into a cheek and lip stain has been pretty impressive. Benefit haven't let me down and I would really recommend having a look the next time you pass a counter. It's truly a beautiful shade that gives the most lovely glow when blended out and you know it's going to last all day long. 

Lollitint is priced at £24.50 which seems steep, but if you like this sort of product I think it's worth investing in. You need the tiniest amount and it will last you forever!
Have you tried Lollitint?

  3. I was wondering what this was about! It's pretty! There's not a lot of orchid shade products out yet, but I think there will be lots more coming soon! I have yet to try any Benefit products for the face, but they do sound lovely. :)

    1. I know what you mean, seems a lot for one product. But if you are a fan of this type of thing it's worth the money as it will definitely last you a seriously long time!xx

  11. Would you say this is better than the posie tint? I'm worried this kind of pink would be too dark as I have very fair skin and ginger hair! I love the colour but don't know if the darker 'candy' colour would suit me? X
