Benefit Lolli-tint ♡

(Get it here)

Lets talk about one of my favourite lip products today; Lolli-tint by Benefit! I love Benefit, its one of my favourite makeup brands, and their products never fail to impress me. Benefit describes Lollitint in these words: "Our candy-orchid tint treats lips & cheeks to a “pop” of dreamy sweetness. It’s the flirtiest flush you can get from a bottle…and its smudge-proof, smooch-proof color lasts from A.M. to P.M. Talk about stain power!"

I have to admit, I fell in love with the Lolli-tint even before using it, because of the sweet packaging. Both the box and the bottle are adorable. The bottle is a metallic pink colour, which has little polkadots and lollipops all over, how cute?! When you open the bottle, the applicator is like a nail polish brush. I didn't know how I felt about that at first, but I really don't mind it.

 Lolli-tint is very long-lasting, and stays put for the entire day. So you don't have to worry about re-applying it every other hour. Plus, it doesn't come off without a fight, even while taking of my makeup at night, I have a difficult taking it off. I absolutely adore the unique blue toned lilac pink colour of this tint. The colour is not too purple or pink, but its a perfect blend of both. I also love how the colour looks gorgeous on all skin tones. 

The soft (or not so soft, if you're layering it) lilic-pink colour looks really flattering on your cheeks and lips. The tint itself, is quite pigmented. So if you're going for a subtle natural look, you should apply a small amount. The thing I love most about this is that it is very versatile, because you can use this for both, a natural everyday look or a bold statement look. With using two or three coats of this on your lips and applying a layer of clear lipgloss on top, you can get the perfect bold lip.

The only problem I have with Lolli-Tint and all the other Benefit tints, is that they have to be blended really quickly, because they dry up immediately. However, that does not change the fact that I absolutely love this tint and almost everything about it.
