Blushed : Review of Posietint by Benefit

November 17, 2012

I’m sure you’re all familiar with Benefit’s famous Posietint. I tried it out a few times on my lips and cheeks and decided to review it.

The packaging is just like Highbeam’s and Benetint’s, it looks like a nail polish bottle. Even the applicator looks like a nail polish brush.

On the brush, Posietint looks a bit scary… It’s so bright! It feels more like gel when you try it on.
This bright pink can be used as a blush and as a lip stain (++). I love multi-purpose products!
To apply it, you need to brush 3 strokes of the product on the apple of your cheeks, then blend them towards your cheekbone.

I got disappointed when I swatched it… It’s way to sheer and it’s not even blendable. Once you apply it on your cheek you have to start blending it within less than a second or else it keeps a stain of where you’ve placed the product at first.
After blending, I realized that it was hardly noticeable (see picture below – blended version of the product). Not only it was very sheer, but patchy too. Pink patches of Posietint were all over my cheeks.
Plus, it emphasized my pores.

Then, I tried it on my lips. To be honest, it looks divine! However, it tends to dry up the lips.

As much as I hate writing bad reviews and as much as I love Benefit, I had to share this with you guys. Don’t waste your money on Posietint. Not worth it.
Or maybe I’m using it the wrong way…

I hope you’re all well 🙂

      I got it with the Feelin Dandy kit by Benefit, it’s not the full sized product… So that’s fine
