Benefit Cosmetics lollitint candy-orchid tinted lip & cheek stain*
£24.50, available online and from Benefit counters

So…here we go again with the cutely-packaged, versatile and fresh-looking cheek and lip tints from Benefit Cosmetics. I remember buying Benetint all those years ago when it was first released and was pleased as punch with my just-pinched cheeks and rosy lips. Whether it is their stains or illuminating highlighters, I adore the ease and finish of the Benefit cheek products in a bottle and their new candy-coloured Lollitint is no exception.

Lollitint is described as a “candy-orchid tint” and is the prettiest lavender-pink shade with cool undertones and a build-able finish. The consistency is a lot creamier and less watery than the likes of Benetint but still dries just as quick once brushed onto the skin so speed is the key with application. I pop three of four dots along my cheek and gently dab and rub the tint into the apples of my cheeks and upwards for a sweet lilac flush. I always love the fresh dewiness that Benefit’s cheek tints instantly give to your makeup and Lollitint is a darling shade that perks your cheeks up a treat and can be applied onto bare skin or over liquid foundation. I personally don’t love the tints when used as a lip stain but I tried it above and it worked quite well providing you prep your lips well with a balm so they don’t become too dry but really Lollitint is all about the candy cheeks and I love it!

    I've been dying to try this but when I saw how thick it was compared to Benetint it put me off a bit! But it looks lush! Lovely shade and it looks like a really cute natural finish, will have to pick one up after all 🙂 x

    This looks lovely, I'm always a bit nervous about trying cheek stains in case they're too heavy and I look awful but this is beautiful.

    Definitely swayed me to give it a go.

    Have always been a little scared of trying a cheek & lip tint but this product may have persuaded me to give it a go 🙂

    This looks really lovely on you!

    I sometimes find they take off my foundation though!!
