Hello Lovelies! First of all, I apologise for the puffy appearance of my face in these photo's. I had some bad news this weekend and no amount of concealer would cover it up! Moving on, If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter then you'll know that I was lucky enough to be selected to be one of Benefit's Benebloggers and try out their new lip and cheek stain - Lolli Tint*. The package arrived at my desk on Friday afternoon complete with three little jars of sweets, it was so cute and definitely cheered up a dull day. 

Lolli-Tint is a candy-orchid tinted lip and cheek stain, which they describe as the flirtiest flush that you can get from a bottle. As you can see from the swatches this is a candy pink tint with a hint of purple which I think is really pretty and perfect for any time of the year. 

The product comes in a pretty pink bottle with lollipops and dots all over (how cute?!) and has an applicator similar to a nail polish applicator. To apply this, I just dab a tiny amount of it on my cheeks and then quickly blend it in using a stippling or buffing brush, so that the product doesn't remove any of my make up. You really only need a tiny bit of this product though as it is very pigmented and a little goes a long way. It's also really important to work quickly with this product as it's pretty fast drying. To apply this to my lips I just paint a little bit on then rub my lips together and let it dry. It dries to a matte finish so I like to apply a little clear gloss over the top to give my lips a little shine as matte isn't my favourite finish. I was a little bit scared of the colour at first as I am quite pale and was worried about how this would look on my cheeks but it gives you a really nice, natural flushed look which I think would suit most skin tones. 

As Lolli-Tint is a stain, it has amazing staying power. In the first swatch I have just applied the product and the second picture is after trying to rub this product off, as you can see it really doesn't budge and I find that the product is still on my lips after eating and drinking, which nearly never happens. I think that this product would be perfect for Valentines Day which is coming up as it would love lovely with a pink or purple smokey eye. 

Lolli-Tint went into stores on the 25th January and retails at £24.50, so it is a little on the pricey side, but a bottle of this will literally last you forever. I still have a bottle of my trusty Benetint from years ago and it's only half gone. For me, Benefit have done it again. I've yet to be disappointed by one of their products and this one is no different, I love everything about Lolli-Tint and have been wearing it on my lips non stop since receiving it.

  2. I've swatched this so many times already in the stores and want it so badly, it feels too expensive though for some reason! I want to wait until it comes out in a set!
