What is it?
A poppy-tinted lip and cheek stain.
What it does?
Benefit's Posietint is a petal-pink stain that plants a kiss of see-through tint on cheeks and lips. With hours of smudge-proof, just-picked perfection, you'll be the prettiest bloom in the bunch!
I've been wanted to try Benefit Posietint since a friend of mine at a beauty forum mentioned about it ( plus after reading another positive reviews). So I gave it a try, buying a sample tube from a contact. Here's the review ( not a pleasant one, I must say....)
Water, Rose Water, Glycerin, Quarternium-15, Carmine
Mini tube 2,5 ml ( it's a sample anyway)
- The color is nice. It's more like a rosy pink.
- Texture: watery
- Hard to blend ( you need extra speed to blend before it dries out)
In the tutorial videos and images, people put three lines of the blush on each cheeks and blend themwww.beaut.ie/blog
That was exactly what I did. Result,
I'm not quick enough when I blended the left cheek, so I was left with a subtle pink streak ( sorry for the bad picture quality, it was taken with my mobile phone)
The right cheek seemed to be okay. It gave me a very subtle rosy hue ( almost un-noticed argh!)
PS. I haven't tried it on my lips ( it used to be cheek and lip stain)Price
$28 at Sephora
180.000 IDR for full size 12,5 ml
80.000 IDR for sample tube 2,5 mlOverall Rating:
1 out of 5. I love the color and the concept of this product. But it just won't work for me.
Will I re-purchase:
The result, the efforts to put on, and the price were such a turn off.
