Benefit Cha Cha Tint


During the holidays I went for a bit of shopping and I ended up at Benefit. I did not have any products by this brand yet, so I was looking around a bit until I discovered this colorful looking lip and cheek stain. I already have a product similar to this one, but this was a completely different color so I wanted to try it out. 

Before I get started with my review.. take a minute to look at this lovely commercial by Benefit of their lip and cheek stains.. it's very cute and it actually makes me want to get the other ones as well.. Oh dear!



Back to business. The Cha Cha Tint comes in a simple but colorful packaging with wild stripes on them. Once I opened the package, I found a small paper inside. Wondering what it was, I quickly unfolded it and discovered it was a visual 'tutorial'. The paper explains how and where to apply the Cha Cha Tint. This is smart and convenient. The cheek and lip stain might not be a common product for everyone, so this is great way to give additional information. 



The bottle itself is an even brighter orange than the package, but it does have the same print. The writing and the stripes are very playful, so it is a fun product to look at! The bottle contains 12.5 ml (or 0.42 US fl. oz) of lip and cheek stain. If you remember the lip and blush tint by Catrice, then you will realize that these two are similar products. They both come in a nail polish bottle, but what about the applicator?



Well, the applicator looks like the nail polish applicator brush too! So, this was also new for me, but I must say that I like it! It is best to keep this product far away from my nail polishes though, so I do not get confused when I am sleep deprived (which is often). The color of the lip and cheek stain is a very bright orange, matching the color of the bottle. Will it be too bright on skin? 


Benefit describes the color as "mango-tinted", though I think mangoes are a bit more yellowish, I certainly do like that they connected it with something fruity. It is a bright orange color that becomes so soft and fresh once smoothed out on skin. It just adds that bit of color to give you a healthy and awake glow. I absolutely love it. It also leaves a nice stain on your finger(s), so you might want to take that into consideration! See the swatches below: 



But what does it look like on my face? The final and most important question. The first picture is me without wearing any Cha Cha Tint, the second picture is when I am wearing it and the third picture (the one in the middle) is a close up in brighter light. The product is very buildable, after you even it out you can add another layer to it and deepen the tropical color. I am also very pleased with how the lip and cheek stain is on my lips. It is not sticky at all, just melted right away into my lips. It does taste rather strange and unpleasant, though.. but we're not supposed to taste it anyways.


I am in love. It really gives you a natural vibrant glow perfect for spring and summer, and it stays on all day. No need to re-apply. I did not have an orange-tinted blush yet, so I am very happy with this product. You can get this summery Cha Cha Tint (or the other three colors) for $30.00£24.50 or €33.00. In the Netherlands the brand is available at Douglas and in Belgium at Inno. Make sure you have a look, because even though it is quite pricey... it sure is lovely! Are you a fan too? Do you own a lip and cheek stain? Would you like to?

    1. Oh, haha, jaa als je het eenmaal op stippelt dan moet je wel snel wezen zodat het niet meteen een "stain" achterlaat. xD

  14. Ik heb eens een lip & cheek stain van e.l.f. gehad, en die vond ik best goed. Ik kan me inbeelden dat eentje van Benefit nog stukken beter is :-)

    1. Gaaf! Ik heb er nog geen geprobeerd van E.L.F., maar bij de volgende aankoop naar kijken!

  15. Hey Natasja, what a beautiful shade on you! I've never tried many cheek/lip tints. The only one I own is a Becca one, but I might still prefer cream/powder blushes personally ;)

    1. I don't have a lot of blushes and the once I have are all different kinds (creamy, powder, tints.. one I have to rub on.. but think that's creamy as well haha) so I really have no preference.. as long as it looks good ^^ But i hear you, lots of people tend to prefer powder blushes.

  16. I used to own a lip and cheek tint but I've used it all up and have never repurchased. I love how convenient this product is and it did add a glow on your face. I'm just not quite sure whether the color will suit me. Hehe. I also love that it's not sticky coz the one I had before was sticky and also has a strange smell but the coverage is great. Great review! Thanks also Natasja for your very heartfelt comment on my blog, appreciate it so much! :)

    1. Hi Rea! First of all, you are very welcome. Your wonderful post inspired me to do so, so I should be thanking you! Thank you, Rea! I think this color could work for you, but if unsure.. have a look at their other colors.. I'd love to try those someday. Thank you for your kind words and input! Always appreciated.

    1. Dat is ook heel belangrijk om te weten. Het imago is een belangrijke factor voor de aankoop, tenminste wel bij mij :-) Super schattig zijn ze, he!
