If you're in the hunt for a long lasting blush and lip color that looks very natural then Benetint by Benefit might be for you. I was fortunate to received a full size sample at the Generation beauty event a few months ago. It's a 2 in 1 lip and cheek color that comes in a form of a liquid that stains your skin. It gives my face a natural rosy flush and it stays on forever! (forever means all day lol). It's absolutely beautiful. Now I know why it's a favorite of so many people.
Benefit claims, "Our original rose-tinted stain is kiss-proof, see-through color for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours. Naturally sheer & sexy on all complexions...it’s innocent yet provocative.Originally created for an exotic dancer in the 1970s, benetint has soared to cult fave status. It's loved by celebs, makeup artists and gals around the world. It's the sexiest flush you can get from a bottle!" (taken from Benefitcosmetics.com)
It bright rosy red color in the bottle, but it's sheer and subtle on the skin. It gives my skin that "just pinched" look ^_^.
I like to either brush a few strokes or dots on the cheeks and blend with fingers. I do the same on the lips. Since I have a medium/tan skin tone, I have to reapply more than once, about 4X so the color can show through. If you have pale to light skin tone,
I wore it once to a mini date with El Hubby and it was able to hold it's color on the cheeks at the end of the day (about 6 hours). There was a little fading on the lips, but the color was still visible.
It retails for $30 and is available at department stores and Sephora.

Overall, it's a great product and it does what it says. I highly recommend it.
Have you tried Benetint?
