Benefit’s tints has always been an overrated product for me, at least in my opinion. Their Benetint is a overpriced, watered down red tint and clearly Korean cosmetic’s counterparts give Benefit a run for their money. When Skinfood came out with these Fresh fruit juice extraction blushes, I knew I had to try at least one in hopes of it being a dupe that I can recommend for you guys. To my surprise, these are actually something I was hoping the Benefit tints to be but way better. So stick around and I’ll show you why your going to need these in your life as well. Let’s go!

Packaging for these tints are very similar to Benefit’s tints with is chubby bottle. But unlike the Benefit ones, the bottle isn’t clear which is kind of a pain in the butt if you want to see how much product you have left. I personally don’t really mind since you can easily see how much product you have if you just screw off the lid and look inside. I also like that each shade has a color coordinated bottle and cap and it is actually very accurate. Also there isn’t a stopper, so make sure not to tip the bottle when you have the cap off or it would end in a disaster.
Like I said in the beginning, I was expecting this product to be a watery mess with no pigmentation. To my surprise, it is very pigmented and lasts on my skins a lot longer then the Benefit ones. It is almost like a creamy color rather then a watery tint, therefore the colors stay more true to how it comes out of the bottle. On the cheeks, it blends out to be a really natural looking flush of color, almost like you used watercolours on your cheeks which is so pretty to me! It may be a little too natural for some people, but for a dry skin type person like me, this is an absolute dream since it hydrates while colouring my cheeks.
On the cheeks, this shade is almost like a contour shade but it blends out to a slight brownish peach which I absolutely love. But this shade is not going to be a shade I’m going to be wearing on my lips since it catches onto my dry patches and because it is a lighter shade then my lips, it almost makes it look slightly crusty.
I really don’t know how to explain this shade other then calling it a mellow carrot shade. It isn’t those obnoxious looking orange tints you see a lot in the K-beauty world. It has a nice balance of orange but looking like those food colouring, toxic looking oranges if you catch my drift.
I really don’t know why they call this a raspberry shade since it isn’t much a raspberry shade. I mean it does kind of look like a raspberry shade if you cooked it into a puree LOL. On the lips, it barely shows but it is a really pretty shade.
Sorry for the different lighting. I got this shade last out of all the shades since there was a mix up with my ordering. But anyways, this shade is definitely my favourite one out of the four since I tend to gravitate towards lavender shades a lot. This color shows up nicely on my lips as well as my cheeks and lasts a little bit longer then the other three since it is brighter out of the four.
When you first blend it into the skin, it almost has a creamy consistency to it. As it dries down, it gets to almost a powdery finish but it still reminds quite hydrating. Its quite hard to describe the texture since it is so unique. But one thing you do have to keep in mind is to not use too much when you apply it over your base make up since it does make your base make up move a bit. When you down blending it into your skin, it leaves a nice natural glow to the skin but doesn’t feel tacky.
This product doesn’t have the strongest lasting finish but I don’t have a problem reapplying this since it is so easy and effortless. I’d say average wear time if you don’t set this product with any powders is about 3-4 hours before you’ll have to reapply.
There is a fruity scent to it but it isn’t anything too strong and it does go away after application. Smell-o-scale: 6/10 in terms of how strong the scent is.
Simply dab it onto your cheeks and blend away. I usually like to use my air puff for the blending and I’d suggest you guys work on one cheek at a time or else you’ll have the little dab marks on your cheeks.
-easy to work with
-good color range
-can move your base make up around if your not careful
-could have a longer lasting power
Yes! I got all four shades didn’t I?

I really like this product. It came to me as a surprise since I didn’t think these would be any special, but I ended up getting all of their shades. They are pigmented, shows up on the skin and blends effortlessly. I highly recommend these over the Benefit Benetints any day for sure. The stand out shades for me I think is 04 berry beet juice which shows up the most and lasts the longest. Overall I really like this product and definitely recommend you guys pick up at least one of the four shades to try for yourself!
