Question
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.

Hi

Both Sephora and Benefit recommend this under powders. If you put this over a powder, it's a liquid and can compromise or even liquidify the powder. It works really well under powders.

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.

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 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.

Hi,

They're two different things. The best thing you can do is go to a Sephora and get a free consultation. The consultants are trained to deal with each individual situation, each person's skin tones, eye colors, and hair colors, and can recommend the very best products and shades from a wide range of manufacturers. When you ask a question on these boards, sometimes people who have no experience with any products give advice and sometimes teens make suggestions, having only experienced only their own young new skin. (No offense to anyone intended). I remember once a 13 to 17 year old writing a review where she complained about how a product intended to counteract aging skin wasn't helping her, and then recommending everyone stay away from it. It's all a matter of perspective, I guess, which is why the Sephora consultants can give you the very best answers about products. If you're not near a Sephora, you can also get best advice by calling the toll free line at 877-SEPHORA.

Hope this helps.

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.

This product is somewhat sheer with the first application, which is good because it allows you to "build" the color with some control.

The best way to find out would be to try both colors on, one on each cheek. I personally love posietint because it looks more natural and is a lighter, brighter color. Benetint is too dark for me. Hope this helps!

I have very fair/light skin and I love posie tint. It goes on light and you can add more if you need it darker, but it's so natural looking. Hope this helps!! Good luck!!

They both would work fine. They are both extremely natural looking. They're sheer, so they will work well on your fair skin, but you can also easily build up the color intensity by adding more layers. Of course, it depends on what color you want. Benetint gives you more of a rosy flush, while posietint gives you a pretty pink glow. If you can't decide, I'd reccomend getting the Feelin' Cheeky set which includes Benetint, Posietint, and High Beam.

Benetint might be a little to dark for you. I find it settles in my pore and looks splotchy; posie tint is smooth and looks beautiful on me. Good luck!

Hi

I have very pale skin. I use either although Benetint very lightly. I like the option of having more than one shade.

Because I have very pale skin, the Sephora rep suggested that when I use Benetint, I apply it like this:

A long time ago, the Sephora consultant showed me how to use this. She suggested I draw a very faint circle on my cheeks, and then put a slash of Moonbeam over the very top of the circle. Then blend the whole thing. It looks beautiful and natural. However, the circle has to be drawn faintly, and quickly, followed by the Moonbeam. If this is not done in an incredibly fast time, it dries and looks like a clown. (Only do one cheek at a time). If this is done quickly, it looks 100% natural, and not like there's any product on at all. I've learned not to totally draw the line though - instead of --------------------- although circular, I do this:- - - - - - - - - . By not making a consistent line, I've found it's not too heavy. Now I do more dashing that full circle. (DO NOT FILL IN THE CIRCLE - THIS IS JUST THE OUTLINE OF ONE). It ends up looking very natural.

Hope this helps.

I agree. Posietint is better because benetint is more of a darker rose, and that would look unnatural on a skin tone like yours.

A I have light skin, blond hair, blue eyes and I use Posietint with a tinted moisturizer. I like to keep a more natural look and Posietint definitely gives me that. However, it is more pink than the Benetint which is red. The Benetint would give you a natural look as well. You should see a Benefit makeup counter or go into Sephora to test it out, as it would help you decide which color would go with your skin, hair and eyes much better!

I love Posie Tint because it gives you a sweet poppy pink flush! You can make it as natural or vibrant as you want depending on how much you apply. The greatest part of Posie Tint is that it stays on all day and you can wear it on your lips for smudge-proof perfection.

I would simply put posietint!! It looks great on pale skin tones and if you want to show off the color, put the tint 2-3 times!!!

I would try out posie tint, I have a fair complexion and found the rose blush looked a bit too much like sunburn...

posietint will give you a nice flushed look and warms the face up!

Posietint is a light sheer poppy pink, while Benetint is a darker sheer reddish tint. I would think for your light skin tone to go with Posietint.

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.
