Benefit LolliTint Lip & Cheek Stain* | £24.95
First things first the packaging is just dreamy, Benefit really hit the nail on the head with this one. The pretty polka dots box just makes Lollitint scream girliness, and it continues throughout, once you finally open the pretty pink polka-dotted box, you reach a metallic pink bottle which looks just like a nail polish, covered in the same pretty polka dots! Now on first impressions when i twisted the top and peeked inside the bottle i was a little shocked at how bright the colour looked, but don’t let this fool you, it blends out really well to the most perfect pinky/lilac shade!
(as you can see in the above pictures)I like to apply LolliTint by adding three little bobs or lines going up from the apples of my cheeks and blending it in with my Elf small stippling brush as i just find this the perfect size, although you can use your fingers if you prefer. I find the colour is just perfect for the transition from winter to spring, It gives my cheeks a really healthy pinky glow, like you’ve just come in from a really long winter walk! I also really love wearing it on my lips, the combo together is fast becoming my favourite!
If i was being really fussy with LolliTint i would say my only little minor snag is that it drys super quick so you have to act fast with your blending skills! But with this being a stain its understandable to me, I just always make sure i have my brush in hand before i apply any to my cheeks so I’m ready to blend instantly after applying, and it doesn’t seem to be doing me wrong! I also really love applying LolliTint to my lips, It is a really buildable colour i usually add about 2 layers to create a perfect pink/lilac lip!
Overall, Benefit’s LolliTint has fast become my favourite product to use lately! I really like that its like two products wrapped up in one little bottle, The staying power is just amazing, it lasts all day until you decide to take your make up off & I just absolutely love the colour and the combo it creates when its on both my lips on cheeks is just really pretty! Everything about LolliTint is perfect for me!
