What Benefit say about Posietint
A see-through poppy-pink tint which can be used on cheeks and lips. The liqui-gel formula blends to just-picked perfection on all complexions and lasts for hours.
I was a little bit disappointed with Posietint when I first swatched it on my hand because the pretty pink liquid seemed to disappear completely after I'd rubbed it in. Thinking it would also be too subtle on my cheeks and lips, I stashed it away in the make up drawer and only actually pulled it out again a couple of days ago. After experimenting with the liquid over the last few days, I can say that I'm actually really pleased with the product and the results I get from it.
Benefit's liqui-gel description is a pretty accurate one. I'd say the formula is slightly thicker than Benetint and I personally find it easier to work with. A couple of small swipes of the brush on each cheek is all that's needed to apply enough product. The formula blends with ease on bare skin and over foundation, but you do need to be quite speedy with blending because it dries quickly. The bright gel leaves cheeks with a translucent hint of petal pink colour which actually looks really natural and delicate. If you want a little bit more colour, the tint can also be reapplied to create a slightly deeper pinky hue.
As with all other stains and tints I've tried, Posietint is quite drying on lips. The colour does look pretty though and a little bit of gloss or balm applied on top makes wearing it a lot more comfortable. I've found the formula to be fairly long lasting on lips and when it does start to wear, it fades evenly. On cheeks it doesn't budge. My oily skin normally doesn't do well with cream or gel blushes but Posietint lasts all day which is pretty impressive.

So, will I be repurchasing a full size? Hmm, I'm not sure. The colour is pretty and the formula is nice to work with but at £24.50 for 12.5mls of product, it's expensive stuff. I think given the choice, I would probably opt for a Becca Beach Tint instead. They're slightly cheaper (although you do get less product) , the packaging is more hygienic and I think I prefer the slightly thicker formula.
Have you tried Posietint? What are your thoughts on it?
