Hey there guys. Happy Monday to everyone. I'm back with a review after that bad case of lue last week. Hopefully I will on my way to full recovery so I can focus and more trivially important things. I'll be kicking off the week to good health with a double dose of lip products from Benefit Cosmetics.

This duo is part of a set from Pucker Up and Party I got months ago. This somehow got lost in the mountains of products lined up for review but I rediscovered these when I was re-organizing my stash. The whole set contains four products - 2 full sized lip balms and 2 mini lip and cheek stains namely:
- Full size Benebalm hydrating tinted lip balm, 3g
- Full size Posiebalm hydrating tinted lip balm, 3g
- Mini Benetint lip & cheek stain deluxe sample, 4 mL
- Mini Posietint lip & cheek stain deluxe sample, 4 mL

Benebalm Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm is described as "kiss of sheer color gives you the sexiest lips." This gives a light rosey red tin with a shiny finish. This is supposed to be a buildable color, with lip-softening, lip-hydrating and lip-conditioning properties due to the mango butter and sodium hyaluronate.

Benetint Rose Tinted Lip and Cheek Stain is described as "original rose-tinted stain is kiss-proof, see-through color for lips and cheeks that lasts for hours." This one imparts a deeper rose hue (vs the lip balm) with matte finish.

Personally, I always prefer matte, full color lip products just because I like having the option of sheering out it out or putting a more opaque finish. With Benebalm, you only get the tiniest hint of rosey red color with the added benefit of moisturizing your lips.

The $18 price tag is not really worth it. The tint is not really as buildable as claimed so even if I try to layer on more (I tried 3 layers), I only get more goopy lip with no more color as I get with a single layer. I'm also not a fan of the cloying rose scent. The smell went away after several minutes, it being so close to my nose made me a bit dizzy and nauseous. This product is not for me but would be perfect for those looking for a lightweight tinted lip balm. This gives my lips a natural-looking red tint with a bit of shine. It feels light on the lips yet also moisturizing and conditioning.

Pros:
- Lightweight formula
- Moisturizing
- Natural-looking tint

Cons:
- Rose scented
- Sheer color
- Expensive for what you get

Benetint has achieved cult status as a favorite lip and cheek product to many beauty enthusiast.  This product gives a sheer yet rich red tint. I applied three swipes on my cheeks and blended it out. One layer is enough for that pretty flush of color but this can also be really built up to get a bright, more pronounced shade.

On my lips, Benetint applied somewhat patchy. This maybe because my lips are not in good condition and peeling in some parts. Nonetheless, the color is a pretty rosy red that really fresh and youthful. It also lasted long, up to five hours and it's easy to touch up since you don't get product build up.
Benetint Rose Tinted Lip and Cheek Stain
Pros:
- Lightweight
- Easily absorbed
- Buildable color
- Versatile

Cons:
- Needs to be blended quickly to avoid streaking
- Slight rose scent
