Benefit Cosmetics : Benetint Lip Balm SPF15

One of my favorite lipbalms from one of my favorite cosmetic brands.
My go-to lip product on days that I dont feel like wearing makeup but want a hint of tint and moisture on my lips. 

If you guys havent heard of the news yet, Benefit Cosmetics will soon be more accessible for us Philippine buyers, click HERE for more info. 

Im gonna make this review really short since I still have to bathe my dogs LOL!

Benetint Lip Balm comes in a tiny glass pot, I love the pin-up, retro-ish theme of Benefit's packaging. Not to mention a lot of newbie brands of cosmetics are trying to imitate the same packaging design sheme. 

The little glass pot holds 6.5grams of product. 

This could be a turn-off for some since you would have to dip your finger in the pot each time you wanna use this, but I dont really mind since I always tote around a lip brush with me. 

This is a rose-tinted balm, smells like roses too. The texture is buttery and smooth. 

The balm can be a little melty too when you store this in warm places, so make sure you store it somewhere cool. 

Looks scary red on the pot but goes on sheer when applied. If you have pigmented lips, and looking for a product that would add more pigment, you honestly wouldnt like this product sincce it goes on really sheer. 

It doesnt even add that much color to my semi-pigmented lips. 

Below is a lip swatch of Benetint Lip Balm topped with clear shimmer gloss.
The color doesnt really look that much different from my bare lips. 

Overall, I still love this product since it does a great job in moisturizing my lips, I rarely get lazy to wear lipglosses anyway and I just use this as base for my other lippies so I dont really mind that its not as pigmented as other tinted balms are. Another plus is that it has SPF too. :)  

Octinoxate (Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate) 7.50% Others: Diisostearyl Malate, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacylapidate-2, Bis-Behenyl/Isostearyl/Phytosteryl Dimer Dilinoleyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Polybutene, Trimethylolpropane Triisostearate, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) wax, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Carmine (CI 75470), Fragrance (Parfum), BHT, Geraniol, Tocopherol, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Citronellol, Benzyl Salicylate.

Use it alone or use it as a base for lipsticks/glosses. Remember to use a lip brush each time to avoid contaminating the balm. :) 

Since this is just a balm, expect to reapply this product every 2-3 hours, the moisturizing effect though lasts a couple more hours after the sheen of this balm has worn off. 

Loves it! :) 

Definitely backup worthy. :)

12-18 months. 
Remember to use a lip brush to prolong the product's lifespan. 

$ 20.00
