Review: Benefit Cha Cha Tint

I’ve been meaning to post this for such a long time!
In fact I thought i had already done so and thought I was going mad as I remember taking photos etc but there is no post to be seen!

This beauty is my current favourite cheek colour and has been for the past 2 months or so.

Benefit’s Cha Cha Tint is a welcome addition to their tint family, having only contained a red and pink tint previously.

I love a coral orangey colour and especially during the summer months with a bit of high beam on your cheek bones it can look gorgeous with a tan!

My bottle is clearly a little scratched from usage as I had to retake my photos having lost them somewhere!

It is most definitely well used in my daily make up and also for nights out.

The consistency is similar to that of Posie Tint (the pink cheek tint) which is creamier than the original BeneTint which is a clearer liquid.

Also I should note at this point that i do love the nail polish bottle design, some people hate it but I’m a firm lover as it was the original design for so many of their products.

You can see below that the brush is quite easy to use and you can dispense as much or as little as you please  onto your cheeks.

I tend to put it on the apples of my cheeks and blend outwards towards my hair line so that most of the colour is on my cheeks, but a bit does flush up the sides making it look more natural.

As you can see in the picture below, this most definitely is a stain and in the time it took to take the above picture and then try to blend it, a mark was left behind!


Oh well, it shows you it’s staying power and of course the colour blended in is lovely and natural.

After the success of our previous post about our reunion night out, I have even decided to take a photo of my face…shock horror!

Here’s the before and after and you can clearly see the colour:

You can see where I’ve blended it in and it gives a really natural look.

It blends easily as long as you’re quick and although looks a little bright initially it does seem to calm after a few minutes.

It also lasts really well particularly if your foundation or other base materials are long lasting and shine resistant.

Personally, I love it. I love all the cheek tints but I do despise the price!

At £24.50 this little bottle is quite expensive, but as no other brand has so far come up with a cheaper alternative (as brands such as Me Me Me have come up with dupes for Benetint, Posie tint, High beam and Moon Beam) I eventually caved!

If you were interested in trying Cha Cha Tint, Benetint or Sun Beam then your luck is in!

In Style are giving away a 4ml bottle with each of their November magazines out from the 4th of October.

Obviously there’s only one bottle in each magazine so you’re going to have to fight it out at the newsagents!

I picked up the one with Sun Beam as I almost bought it previously but didn’t as I wasn’t sure about it.

This is the perfect opportunity to try it out for £3.80!

Will you buying In Style to try it? Do you like Benefit and their cheek stains? I’m going to be testing mine out over the nest week!

    I see you have that typical "application stain" on your hand. Hasn't that happened on your face too? I was a bit slow once and had a stripe. And I'm not that keen on it "sticking" so well. It's my skin it's sticking to that hard in the endx Joanna @ The Treasure Chest

    You definitely all need to grab In Style girls!Yes I did get the stain on my hand which I explained in the post was from taking the photos and then trying to blend afterwards which clearly wouldn't happen normally.It's never happened on my face as I always blend it straight away, and as far as I'm aware mine always comes off straight away with my cleanser so I wouldn't worry about it 'sticking to your skin'
