Ah.. the coveted Benefit Lolli Tint that I’ve been longing to review for ages (again) but prohibited because I’m so kuripot (english: cheapskate) to purchase the full sized bottle. So I’m reviewing this (finally!) thanks to the November BDJ Box of 2014 which contains all the wonderful Benefit Cosmetics products. I own a full-sized bottle of the original Benetint that I reviewed before and I think trying this out, made me consider actually purchasing a full-sized pretty soon. As promised, I will be reviewing the best of Benefit products for the whole week. Read on for the full review!
|Oh it’s so cute
What? Benefit Lolli Tint
Where to buy? Benefit Cosmetics Store everywhere!
How much? Around 1,700php (35USD?)
Small but powerful. The Benefit Lolli Tint literally packs a punch as this baby stays on until you remove it with a good cleanser! The lasting power of this product definitely compensates for its insanely high price.
I put it on like so, swipe swipe swipe. 3 stripes like a kitten. Meow!
Gaaah.. this is what I get for posing in the camera before blending the Lolli Tint. Streaks of tint on my face. Uneven and I’m not able to fix it no matter how hard I rub. Oh well, till I wash my face later on the day.
Oh well that’s life. Sometimes you can never correct mistakes but you can learn from it.
|“Oh, I have a pimple. It’s just a pimple. It’s like.. no big deal. What? No big deal? Yeah.. just keep your face clean” (who remembers that commercial?)
That’s why I learned how to blend as fast as I can on the other cheek. LOL. It gives a nice pink flush that is so flattering on my fair-olive skin. The Lolli Tint is the perfect pink for pinays who are not yellow or not pink. Just olive. Just neutral. Because not everyone is yellow-toned or pink-toned. Some are actually normal-toned.
Tip: Blend it as fast as you can because once it stays put. It stays put for good.
|It’s a pinkish-muave when swatched
Pucker up. It looks muavey on the hand swatch but it’s a nice bright pink on my pigmented lips. Here is a kiss for you. Please don’t run away from my fish-faced smooch.
