I Bought That: Benetint Lip & Cheek Stain

Benetint Lip & Cheek StainThere are certain items that stay on my wish-list for a while for no good reason. As in, there is no good reason that I should have waited for years to buy Benefit’s Benetint Lip & Cheek Stain because it is AMAZING and costs less than a decent pair of shoes.

About the Name: Yes, the word “stain” does carry with it a certain horror-inducing connotation, but this is not like the stain that you found on your rug after stepping in dog poop. This stain is rosy and sheer and makes you feel like a fresh-faced twenty-something.

About the Application: Thank you, Benefit, for idiot-proofing your product for make-up dummies like me. It comes with instructions. FOR REAL. You just sweep three little tiger stripe lines on your cheeks, blend, and voila! Gorgeousness!
