Benefit Sweet Tintations

These adorable benefit gift sets had already caught my eye on a shopping trip before Christmas in one of the many department stores i'd seen them in! So i was absolutely delighted when i received one as a very generous gift from a lovely family friend.. 

Inside this set are mini sizes of the popular lip and cheek stains; Benetint and Lollitint, as well as these you also get two full size Balms including the Benebalm and the Lollibalm. So really the perfect gift for any make-up obsessed lady! 

The Benetint is one of Benefits most popular products and has been around for year, i have used the benetint before but have never really got on well with attempting to use use this on my cheeks, it stains SO quickly and being as pale as i am i personally find it hard to put on without looking like I've been punched in the face repeatedly. The product itself is quite watery and a completely different consistency to the Lollitint, both products are incredibly pigmented and just bare in mind a little goes a long way! 

I actually preferred the consistency of the Lollitint and enjoyed using this product more then the Benetint! I thought it had a more creamy texture meaning you could apply and blend with ease, not having to worry about looking like a creepy china doll with bright red rosey cheeks! This product also looked gorgeous dabbed on the lips and i really enjoyed using and wearing it both ways. 

The two balms are SO great especially for people who can't be bothered with the faffing of applying lipstick! The two colours obviously pair up perfectly with the above tints and can be worn over them creating a deeper depth to the tint colours. These are super hydrating as they contain mango butter, they give your lip a great pop of colour whilst also keeping them lovely and hydrated in this harsh weather! The product applies so easily and i did love wearing both colours. I had never tried or heard of these before and originally thought that they would be bright and apply like a lipstick, i was completely wrong and are great for an everyday lip! They are very handy sizes to keep in your handbag and to apply whilst on the go. 

Not only was the outside packing beautiful each product had a strong smell of roses, which i really enjoyed (infact like the bit of the weirdo i am, i found myself sniffing the bottles) 

I would love to know if anyone has any tips on applying the Benetint as i'm not ready to write it off just yet.. 




  1. The balms look incredible and I would love to try them, especially with summer approaching. I'll have to look out for any special offers like this! I've not found out how to apply the Benetint in a way that works for me yet either :/

    1. The balms are so lovely! Let me know if you ever do find out how to use the Benetint! haha xo

  2. My friend has this. She says the balms are disappointing but she loves the tints :)

    1. Oh really, i love the balms more than the tints! I think they are so much easier to use & they apply so lovely! xo
