Review: Benefit Cha Cha Tint

Benefit Cha Cha Tint

With the launch of Benefit's Tinted Balms, I thought I'd revisit one of my favourite of their famous tints. Don't make me choose between this and Posie, I love them equally! No one ever seems to talk about Cha Cha though, and in my opinion, you're missing a treat if you write this off as a gaudy orange. 

Described as a juicy mango shade, Cha Cha Tint is a gorgeous coral. It's far more flattering than the idea of orange blush sounds, and gives a healthy, dewy finish. It blends perfectly into the skin, and looks so natural, which is a nicer look for Summer than anything too powdery, I think. I think the reason I love this and Posie so much more than the original Benetint is their creamier formula. It's far easier to work with than the runnier original, and I like to apply this with the little brush provided, dotting it on the apples of my cheeks, before blending out with either my finger or a brush, such as the Real Techniques buffing brush. Be warned though, you must blend quickly. Leave it to sit there for too long and you are faced with some very obvious dots where it was originally placed.

The whole point of these tints is of course, that you can also use them on lips. I must admit, I find they can be a little drying, but I do think they make a nice base as once they are on, they're going nowhere. I just find that I need to top up with lip balm every few hours, which I don't mind. The coral shade of Cha Cha is just beautiful on lips, and very on-trend right now. I am pretty keen to try it out in balm form, as it seems Benefit have taken the tint+balm combo I've been using for years, and put it together into one convenient product! 

Which Benefit Tint is your favourite?
