Hi,

Both look good. Most people have more than one shade of blush or lipstick, so it's nice to have an option of more than one shade.

Hope this helps.

answer 3
From my experience definitely Benetint. Posietint is not a product I plan on buying again. First off Benetint provides a natural rosy flush which blends easily given that it is liquid. The Posietint is a little creamier and when applied to face, I could not spread and it looked like I had pink streaks on my face that did not come off with makeup remover. Needless to say, Posietint was not a good for me and probably many others.

I personally would use Benetint. While Posietint is nice too, I find the colour too light, it seems to fade faster and it doesn't go on as dark to begin with, so I find Benetint a better bet for more dramatic, longer lasting colour. I think the only time I would pick Posietint over Benetint is if I were wearing very little makeup and just wanted a slight blush to my cheeks and lips.

Hey! I think that Posietint is best for fair skin. Especially while you soak up the last bit of summer, it would be a great way to get that pop of color into a neutral colored outfit. Obviously it won't last you very far into the fall and winter but a lot of my fairer friends tell me that their experience with benetint is that they've looked like they had a raspberry popsicle because of it's harsh contrast against them. Either way, they're both great no matter which you settle on!

Well, it depends on what you are going for. Posytint is softer, and a little more subtle. I like to use it when I am going for a more natural look. Benetint is darker but a bit more sheer - so you can get sort of a flush going which is very cute and sexy all at once.

I have very fair skin and find I use Posytint most often - but benetint is still a fave of mine.

I haven't tried Posietint yet. I am sure it looks great on fair skin. But I use Benetint all the time, and I am really fair, and it looks great on my lips. I don't know about cheeks, but it is pretty sheer, so if you just put a little bit and blend quickly, it should look fine on fair skin. I think the color is designed to be universally flattering.

I have used this for years. I apply foundation, blend then apply benetint on my apples of my checks and blend toward my temples. Then I apply powder. If I am going out for the night, I will usually add a blush on top of this (like Nars Orgasm) for more impact.

I put on my Hour Glass Veil primer, Cera Ve moisturizer, Dior Skin Nude Concealer, Bobbi Brown Cream Foundation, MUFE HD Powder, Laura Mercier Mineral Powder and then pat in the Benetint. I find that this way works for me but I have very fair skin and need for it to show up, where as I was afraid that if I applied it before everything else, it would be muted. It didn't effect the look of my make up, though. That was also after applying about 2 or 3 coats of it to build up the color. I put a few dots on and then pat it in instead of rubbing so that might be why it works for me.

In order, I use my moisturizer, a liquid foundation, light dusting of Bare Minerals powder, then Benetint. I've found that, even after using the Bare Minerals powder, the Benetint is easy to blend in, possibly because I've already put on my moisturizer and liquid foundation. I put little swipes of Benetint on my cheeks and blend them in pretty much right where I swipe. It hasn't messed up my powder foundation doing it that way, but again, I don't cake on the powder stuff much.

I usually apply it before my Bare Escentuals foundation, but I always found it too pale and then added a powder blush on top afterwards.

You should apply the foundation first in most cases of blush but since this is in a liquid form, I'd suggest applying your foundation all over except for the apples of your cheek and after applying benetint, slowly blend it in.

I would apply Benetint before powder since it might create a muddy mess if you apply after powder. Remember that the powder might neutralize some of the red tint, so add a little more than if you were wearing the cheek stain alone. Also, be sure to let the Benetint completely dry before applying powder.

I would say Benetint is DEFINITELY more natural looking. Posietint has a slight shimmer to it, and seems more creamy, compared to the very translucent and matte Benetint. Also, when people blush naturally, it tends to be more red toned (benetint) rather than pink toned (posietint)

I've tried both repeatedly. Posietint was a more familiar creamy texture, and extremely streaky/dotty on my face, how you first touched it onto your skin determined the dark areas. The color is peachy and very, very subtle. Benetint is a surprising thin liquid, like water, and has more natural looking undertones of pink (at least on my skin). It spreads more easily and does a great job layering darker depending on how much your clothes white out your skin that day. Now I only use the Posietint for a day I want an obviously "made up" fashion look with trendy colors like a coral or nude lip, for fun; the benetint is for everyday and classic dressing up days.

for your complexion, I would go with Benetint. start with a small amount for a more natural appearance. when it comes to this stain less is more but it really goes a long way. the posetint, while a cute summer color comes out as a very pink, 'barbie doll' tone and may not naturally compliment your described features. when applying the benetint, one stroke of the brush to the apple of your cheek followed by a quick blend (you can use your finger or a sponge) and the same to the lips is all it takes to fulfill a natural flush. apply more for your desired effect.

If you want to rinse it off you can do so for a few minutes after application, after that I'm not so sure because I always wear a balm or gloss over it since by itself it just dries on your lips. So I doubt you'd find yourself out in the rain wondering if your chin was all pink and stripy since tints are rather uncomfortable by themselves and are seldom not accompanied by ones favourite chap/lipstick, balm or gloss. If I do something to take off the balm like eating, drinking, etc. the colour stays on.

For the lips, use the applicator to make three dots on the top lip and the bottom. From there, use your finger to dab/spread the color.

I have used it for a long time in different ways, but the way I like best is to swipe/ dab on the hollows of your cheeks (as much as one dip in the bottle attains) under the cheekbone and closer to your ear than nose, then pat it toward the apples of your cheeks, tending toward the cheekbones but not too high. Do it quickly though because it dries fast and if you pat/ blend too much the color will just come off on your fingers. Hope this helps!

How do you apply Benetint? I went pretty close to the directions with excellent results, although I think I probably applied more to my cheeks. I swished it across one cheek, then spread it around with my finger(s) to make it look natural, as you would with any blush, . I did only one cheek at a time as this is a type of dye. One doesn't want it to set in place too long. I hope this helped. I simply love it!!

Hi there! I apply benetint using my clean fingers. I have tried several brushes, but FAIL. It would only literally stain your cheeks like red spots and won't blend well that much. So yes, fingers are the easiest tool to blend them on your cheeks for a natural blush! Hope this helps!:)

Here's what I do: I take the little brush, and make three or four quick lines across my cheeks on the "apple" (or roundest part) of the cheek, right at the cheekbone. Then with a makeup sponge, I blend them. There's no magic to using "lines." Some ladies will draw a circle, and I've seen makeup artists paint a small triangle. The key - as with the application of all makeup, is to place it where you want it, start with a small amount (and add more later, if you like), and BLEND, BLEND, BLEND! It's very easy to use.

you can either put 3 dots on your cheeks and blend them together quickly after application, or you can do a quick swipe on your lips and rub together like you would with a traditional lip stick/gloss.

Use the brush they give you, much as you would on a painting. I usually outline the outside of my bottom lip, then quickly fill in the center, and then do the same thing for the top. Make sure to go quickly, though, as it sets rather fast. For a lighter look, scrap some of the paint off of the brush into the bottle, and then after applied, dab it evenly with a tissue or a finger.

I wet a wedge shape beauty sponge then apply a bit of the benetint to the sponge. After I've got enough product on the sponge I squeeze the sponge together a few times to help distribute the color. When I have a slight tint (vs. a red stain) on the sponge I dab it on the apples of my cheeks.
For a richer color on the lips I simply squeeze out the extra water and use the corner of the wedge to apply directly to my lips.

By applying several coats on your lips you achieve darker red. The first one or two coats just looks like those perfect healthy red lips that are pictured on women with supposedly no make up. I think it would be fine on any skin or hair coloring. The pink is a little different. It has a sticky coating that eventually dries, but not as fast as the original. The posie pink also has a more pink hue than the Benetint original has red. But both look really good. They look natural.

I have dark blonde hair and hazel green eyes and prefer the rose. I do like a rosy cheek though, so if you'd like more subtle blush, the peach may be the way to go. Either way, the staying power and natural color are the best on the market!

I haven't tried the pink, but the rose isn't as dark as it looks in the bottle. It's very natural looking, even on my fair skin.

In my opinion, the pink isn't as much a tint as a tinted highlighter, and the rose works on most any skin tone and is much more natural looking. I recommend the rose. It is so pretty, natural looking, easy to apply and stays on for quite awhile.

I'm black haired and green eyed. I wanted something that looked natural. I use the lighter version and I adore it. Its not too pink and not too red. I haven't tried the red yet but there hasnt been a need either.

As long as you use just a tiny bit of the product you should get a nice natural look from the original Benetint. The red isn't really that strong as long as you don't layer it. I use about three tiny dots on my lips and then blend it in with my finger and it looks really natural. It helps if you use some lip balm first though because it will be easier to blend. I hope this helps!

Depending on your skin tone, which I assume is fair (?) both benetint and posietint will not give you a nude flush. Benetint is rosey while posietint is on the pink-ier side. Hope that helps!

I haven't tried the pink tint, but the rose tint is already pretty sheer. The beauty of the product is that you can start off blending just a bit in your cheeks and add more if you want it darker. The initial color isn't very dark though, definitely not a deep red that you might think from the bottle

I only use my middle finger when applying Benetint. I do have a bit of staining but after about two hand washes with soap, it's gone.

Hand soap and H2O works just fine if you use it right away otherwise use a little eye make up remover.

Hi,

Soap and water seems to work just fine, but if I really have the dye on my fingers I might use a waterproof makeup remover that's made for tough makeup. Last suggestion would be a petroleum jelly which worked when I once spilled some and it really got into a couple of fingers.

Hope this helps.

Benetint for sure. Posytint is nice but it's a lot lighter of a pink, probably best for fair haired girls.

I think benetint the original would be your best pick. The pink posey might be to bright and unnatural for your medium skin tone.

I ended up getting benetint and love it!! I put a primer on first so it doesn't settle in my pores, which are unfortunately large. I also add alot more than the suggested 3 dots. Thanks for the suggestions!

i suggest benetint. you can go wrong since and if you dont like it you can return it. I think benetint has a more mature intensity which may compliment your skin tone more than posietint.
