freshly picked

Benefit Benetint is a cult favorite, and one of the best products for no-make-up make-up. The berry stain delivers a natural, rosy flush that's appealing to both beauty minimalists and connoisseurs. The color lasts all day, and flatters a wide variety of skin tones.

Posietint is like Benetint's kid sister. Released just in time for summer, this petal-pink cheek and lip tint creates a subtle, innocent glow. The see-through stain delivers hours of lasting color. Because it sets quickly, be sure to blend Posietint right away. Applying the stain on top of powder can create an uneven finish, so blend Posietint directly onto bare or primed skin. Although the packaging includes a brush similar to a nail polish brush, I recommend dabbing the product on with fingers for a more controlled dose.

Benefit has created a few products around Benetint including Pocket Pal, a double-sided wand housing both Benetint and a clear gloss. Pocket Pal is a great item to keep in your purse for quick touch-ups, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll release a Posietint version as well. In the meantime, you can pick up the original Posietint at Benefit.
