All of the above.
I don't use a traditional foundation (I have freckles, foundation looks silly), I use You Rebel and I will use this after I apply the tinted moisturizer. Sometimes, my face goes naked, so then I can rock this. I wouldn't put it on UNDER foundation, because I feel like you would lose the color. I also throw a pop of Nars Orgasm blush on top.

Posietint Over or Under Liquid Foundation
I'm having this dilemma-- should I put the posietint on before or after my LIQUID foundation? If I put the tint on before the foundation, will the color of the tint still show through? And... If I apply the posietint over the foundation, won't this cause my foundation to smear? Please help! I look forward to reading your opinions and ideas. Thanks!

You can use it either under or over the liquid foundation depending on the coverage of foundation you use (light, medium, or full coverage). If you use it under the full coverage foundation, it might not show the color as much as it does over the light coverage foundation. If you would like to use it over the liquid foundation, just dapping it on. Try not to rub it because it could smear off the foundation. Hope that help. :) Good luck.

I've had a problem with Posietint streaking when I put it on before foundation. Applying it over foundation gives you a little more time (still not much) to blend the product before it dries. If you apply it over foundation, you will get more color without having to use as much. Plus, if you use a full-coverage foundation, you have almost zero hope of seeing this product under it. Hope this helps!

I use it after foundation and have no problems with smears at all... just make sure your foundation is good and dry. Posietint is really very light and gel-like and dries super fast, so dab some on and then quickly and lightly pat/swipe the product onto the desired area. I would never use it under anything - it has a lovely glow that would be erased if you used foundation over it.

I put in on under liquid foundation. It shows through and if you didn't think it did, just put more posietint on next time knowing that the foundation will dim it some. You'll figure out the right amount to get the look you want. Like JC said, when I put it on over foundation it rubbed the foundation off.

answer 10
The answer is simple:
Liquid with Liquid, Powder with Powder.
Ok - so with a liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer, use your foundation/tint first; then apply your PosieTint
If you use Powder foundation, you should be using powder blush for better results; BUT if you want to use PosieTint or ANY other cheek stains; use the PosieTint or cheek stain FIRST to stain your skin; then use your powder foundation as per usual. That way, if you get overzealous with the stain, you can try to mute it down.
As per any stain on lip or cheek, the trick is to try it many different ways until you find the way that works best for you.

Put your posietint on before you use your foundation-it will show through your foundation and if necessary add a little shimmer or powder blush to enhance the color-while your foundation and powder blush fade through the day-your posietint will still be there!

If you use liquid foundation, I have found that the Posietint will smear the foundation and you will need to reapply the foundation after the Posietint. This also includes powder foundations. To make your Poisetint show through your foundation so you don't have to apply powder blush-add a few layers of the Posietint.

I put this over liquid foundation. It does not smear, in fact I think it settles in quite nicely, almost becomes creamy on the cheek, and is easy to blend. I do think though that effects could be different with different foundations, considering different amounts of moisture/oils. However I have done this with several brands, and find over has always been best.

Posietint is very sheer. It gives a youthful, natural finish to your lips. I would use it as a base to blend with another more dominant pink lipstick. Or you could also use it as a base to a shimmery lip gloss.

Hot pink or vibrant roses look great on pale skin. To achieve that look you could use Posietint on your lips then apply a flattering red over the stain. Voila! Your own personal color! Blending two colors always looks better and more complimenting than just one alone.

You don't lick it when it's wet, you put on small amounts and then let them dry. The whole point of a stain is that you do not lick it and therefore, once your lips have been stained it has no taste.

Do one cheek at a time, and either an X or 3 dots on the apples of your cheek. For lips I apply it from the brush and rub in with my finger. Either put a lip balm on before or after you do it. Be fast when your are rubbing it in. ONE CHEEK AT A TIME (:
I have very pale skin, and it shows up more pink on me versus my sister who is very tan(I got the irish gene, she got the Italian gene). My friend who is dark, like the cha cha tint a lot more than this. So does my sister. Because this shows up more sheer on their cheeks. But still pink on their lips. Cha Cha tint doesn't show up orange on them, it is gorgeous! However, I look like an ompaloompa. I'd test it out at the store first though.

It is actually pretty easy to cover up. I put the pocket rocket lipgloss color Jesse by urban decay and it completely covered up the color. It's a dark shade though so it makes sense. It's super easy to layer though and the color becomes more intense as each layer is added so it's easy to adjust. Posietint is pretty bright so I think it would show up on darker skin tones nicely.

If you have dark lips, it will make them look kind of weird. but if you have pale lips, it will make them a beautiful shade of pink. As for your cheeks, I like to brush a little on my cheekbone and blend it out with my fingers. You can add more if the color doesn't stand out; it's very easy to build up the color intensity.

This product is somewhat sheer with the first application, which is good because it allows you to "build" the color with some control. I am fair and I apply it 3 times to my lips and let it dry somewhat betrween applications & then apply a lipstick color over it to give it either a shine or matte finish. I would say this product would be very lovely for your color. cheeks or lips. I encourage you to try it!!!

(they also have them at macys if you dont have a sephora nearby). just dont apply directly to cheeks, you'll get streaks because it isn't as thin as the benetint. hope that helps!

Posietint for the cheeks and benetint is more natural for lips

They both are definitely very natural looking, and sheer, so they won't look to bright against your fair skin. However, you can add more to easily build up the color intensity. Of course, it all depends on what color you want. Benetint gives you a rosy flush, while posietint goves you a pretty pink glow. If you can't decide between the two, I reccomend buying the Feelin' Cheeky set, which includes Benetint, Posietint, and High Beam.

hmm.. that depends. i'm paler skin toned but i tend to get tanner in the summer time so the posie tint looks best in the summer. benetint (which i've tried as well) works really well for the winter time. the great thing about these tints are that they can be the base and if u want to add a little more, just put on some lip gloss and it switches it up again. also, i just bought another posietint for the fall season so i'll be wearing that and probably but a little redder toned lip gloss on top. hope that helps!

Both are very natural. I very fair skin (read: see-through) and I chose Posietint because it is brighter. I need that pop of color or I look tired and washed out.

I've tried them both and Posietint all the way. I promise you will love it. But don't be fooled by how it looks through the bottle or when it comes out on the brush, it's amazing once it's on your skin. My mom, sister and I have 3 different skin colorings completely and we all look great with it. Benetint is too harsh for cheeks, it's more for a va va voom pop on the lips.

Hi

I have both and have very pale skin. Benetint makes a strong statement even when lightly applied. You could go to Sephora and see and try both.

Hope this helps.

Posietint. I have dark golden honey hair and medium-light skin, and posietint is much more natural. I have tried both of them, and I also like the consistancy of posietint better.

Of course! You can pretty much do whatever you want when i comes to your makeup! A moisturizing lip balm or primer is actually a very good idea post putting on the lip stain because most lip stains suck all the moisture out of your lip leaving you licking you lips a lot with can lead to chap lips which is not fun!

yes you should. because the tint will settle into the lines of your lips so you should really put on a lip balm
hope this helped.

No, sorry. It would be like trying to paint over crayon. The posietint would just bead up and wouldn't stain the lips.

I would brush you lips with a soft wet toothbruch, use lip balm but take it off before applying posie tint. It is not drying and the color will not looks cracky. I love it. Bought the mini but will def buy the full size!

Yes, I do this all the time. However, it takes more time because you need to let the moisturizer set and then blot any excess before applying the stain.

Also, it will take longer for the stain to set and you have to be a little careful not to lick it off or mush it around on your lips before it sets or the color can be a little uneven.

I find that it's worth the wait for moist all-day lip color though.

I would put the moisturizing lip balm on after applying the stain - that way it will last longer and the color will show up better

Hi

If you use something moisturizing, Posietint and Benetint may not adhere to it. I apply it after. This doesn't need to be a big production with powders and primers or anything. Just use either tint and then a moisturizer or gloss or balm and you're good to go. This is supposed to be convenient, not a time-consuming process. However, always moisturize with something, since this is drying.

Only if you want your stain to not adhere AT ALL!
The trick to applying a good lip stain is to have exfoliated and moisturized WELL BEFORE you try and stain your lips.
Slick slippery skin on your lips WILL NOT stain. They just won't! The stain will float on the top of your lip balm and get pushed into the inside of your lips or outside corners and make you look like you've been sucking on a popsicle and not in a good way.
I'm not saying you can never moisturize your lips before a stain; I'm just saying that it's got to be A LOOONG TIME before. If it takes you an hour to get ready, from shower to dressing and out the door; you can exfoliate and hydrate your lips in the shower/just after your shower. Then, as you come to the end of your beauty regimen (meaning, the very last thing you do at the end of that hour) you can wipe your lips (stains only stay on clean, dry lip surfaces) and apply your stain at your discretion.

Imagine trying to put lipstick on over a heavy gloss. You are going to have a battle to try and get that lipstick to coat. That's what I'm talking about. Stains should go under any lip balm, lipstick, lip gloss; to stain the skin. Otherwise they just won't work.

Keep in mind, the lips naturally lose lots of skin cells during the day. Your stain may wear off unevenly. It's not the stains' fault, it's just biology.

YES! I always use a moisturizer first, then Posientint. It looks very natural. If i'm using a powder I always use it after i apply Posientint but wait a few minutes to let it dry and set. I put a dab on my cheek and with one finger i shape it into a natural blush look. It looks great but takes a little practice. Oh, the finger you use to smear will turn red :)
