I’m willing to give Benefit’s newest fragrance a try since I’m such a huge fan of Maybe Baby!

At first glance it sounds like a rather odd combo of notes. A blend of mangos, freesia, peony, and sandalwood? Whoa. That’s alot to partake of in one bottle.

But I’ll give Benefit a chance with this one! I’ll be heading into Sephora to have a sniff! Hey you never know it could be another winner!

Benefit Posietint Review

You’ve all been eagerly awaiting this review haven’t you? Tis my review of Benefit Posietint!

I know, I know you’re waiting for me to trash it aren’t you? I’m so sorry to disappoint my dears but be prepared to be $28 USD poorer. Come on shell it out. Time to make your donation to Benefit.

Benefit Posietint trumps Benetint in spades and I’m here to give you a raving review. I’m in love. Finally, after much disappointment lately, Benefit has scored and we have a winner!

Posietint is a completely new formula compared to Benetint. It’s not creamy as I had originally suspected. It’s still very much a liquid stain however it’s a tiny bit thicker than Benetint which makes blending a very dreamy experience. Benetint has this uncanny ability to apply streaky and it’s a mess to blend at times. I used to have the sincerest love for it but you have to take into consideration that at the time of it’s release it was probably one of the only stains on the market which made it a staple product for me. However, as time passed stains began to flood the cosmetic market and much better options (and cheaper at times) were made available so my beloved Benetint got pushed into the cosmetic graveyard on the bottom of my closet where all good cosmetics go to pass away and possibly wither away and die or maybe, if they are lucky, get some love from me in the distant future.

Without Flash: Posietint vs Benetint

Posietint vs Benetint

Now we have Posietint and a skeptical Muse purchased it hoping for the best but preparing herself for the very worst. The worst hasn’t come. Posietint is everything it promises to be and more.

The Muse hearts Benefit’s cute instructions that they include with all their products lately!

As I mentioned above it blends beautifully and it’s a very natural pink color. The general idea of the pink had people hyper considering that Benetint applies more red than pink. Rest assured that the pink is much more natural than the reddish tinge of Benetint. The color applies sheer at first but can be quickly built up to a deeper color should you desire it. In my FOTD below I used three stripes across each cheek, blended and reapplied again with the same amount to achieve the deeper pink you see.

I think that Benetint applies much better on the lip area than Posietint does. I wasn’t thrilled with the results of Posietint on my lips at all as it appears too sheer. My lips are already a pink hue so placing the stain on top didn’t do much. I felt like Benetint definately wins in the lip staining department.

Possibly the best part of the product is of course the fantastic staying power. It’s not going anywhere until you remove it. Once it’s on, it’s on. For good.

All in all Benefit Posietint is a BIG winner. I love Benefit and I’m constantly on a roller coaster ride of ranting and raving about their products but in this case, Benefit Posietint gets a big Muse Approval for purchase! I love it and think it’s worth purchasing for yourself!

For my below FOTD I tried to be as minimal as possible. I skipped foundation and concealer so be gentle. I was trying to do the really natural look.

I’m basically using Posietint on my cheeks and lips plus a hint of mascara and a very light touch of Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Lumnious Eyeshadow in Miami Ice on my eyes!

I did two versions of the FOTD one of which was without gloss and one with gloss.

Here’s what I came up with:

With Gloss

Benefit Posietint

Team Sugar has an article up about Benefit’s newest stain that will be available shortly from Sephora. The new stain is entitled Posietint and appears to be pinker as opposed to Benetint which is a bit redder in color.

Someone else blogged this and I’m completely befuddled where I originally read it! If you blogged it do give a yell so I can credit your entry here!

This looks fabulous. Even though I’ve lost my love for Benetint lately (I’ve found stains that are much more pigmented than Benetint) I can’t help but be excited about this particularly stain!

Maybe we finally have a winner from Benefit?

Cross your fingers and await the Muse’s review because I’ll be all over it as soon as it’s released!
