Hello everyone! I hope you are all well, today is the day I finally post my Lollitint review after weeks of saying I would. Due to my exams coming up soon etc, it means that I will be posting less often and might be having a few guest bloggers oooooo! But you will have to wait for that because right now I want to tell you about the best lip and cheek stain ever!
If you don't know anything about Benefit's tints then they are basically long wearing liquid formulas (nail polish like) which you can paint onto your face for the apple of your cheek or simply put on your lips.
Firstly, lets start of the packaging which has got to be one of my favourite things about this product. The product is boxed in an adorable pink polka-dot box which is just so girly! When I opened the box inside, there was an even more girly metallic pink bottle which looks like nail polish. as also within the lid was a thin narrow which you would expect to see from a nail polish. Nevertheless, it does sit on my makeup drawers looking ever so beautiful and I love just starting at it.
The Lollitint is a candy-orchid tinted lip and cheek stain which is described to be the flirtiest flush you can get from a bottle and a pop of dreamy sweetness. The colour is so beautiful and perfect for Spring. As you can see from the swatch below, its a really pretty cool-toned pinkish lilac. It's a real unique shade as I do not own any blush this colour and I believe it would enhance all skintones due to the blue undertones. As well as the colour, it also gives a satin, dewy look. It gave me a really healthy looking and natural glow if I apply it lightly as it really brightens the skin or you can build it up to be more intense so you can make it more of a bold statement cheek. That is a good advantage of the product, it is very buildable and versatile to any look you want to create whether its a bold pink lip or bold cheeks, it is a fun shade for the spring.
The formula is different to the over tints as it is more of a gel formula which I think is much easier for blending. It's rather thick and creamy yet feels so lightweight on the skin. The staying power is amazing and it really does live up to Benefit's statement that it lasts from AM to PM. The only disadvantage of this is that because it does stay on so well it does dry incredibly quick. As I was doing the swatch on my arm and took some pictures I then wanted to blend it and I couldn't so you will have to work quick with blending it! Benefit do give you some little instructions on how to apply the tint. Like the instructions, I do brush three strokes on the apple of my cheek but I blend it with a Real Techniques contour brush instead of my fingers as I worry about a patchy effect. For the lips, I just do the same, dap and blend to create a stunning lavender shade!
Overall, I am so impressed and also in love with this product. It is just a two in one which I am starting to take everywhere! The colour of the year from Pantone is Orchid so it is perfect! The formula although a little hard to work with, is really good and much better compared to the other tints. It's just a really fun and flirty product which I would recommend to anyone if they want to achieve a beautiful and radiant glow. Although pricey at £24.50 if you want a high quality and long lasting product then it is worth every penny!
