Benefit Lollitint: Photos,Review and Swatches

One day last week I was having a mooch around Instagram and came upon a post from Sweaty Betty PR, offering a free Benefit Lollitint to those who placed an order for Roxy Jacenko's new novel,"The Rumour Mill".

The offer was current for one hour only, and before I knew it ( well...not really ) there was an order confirmation email in my inbox...I couldn't pass up the offer of a great read, and a full size Benefit product that retails in Australia for $52!!

Benefit describes Lollitint as;

"The flirtiest flush you can get from a bottle! Our candy-orchid tint treats your lips and cheeks to a "pop" of dreamy sweetness"

Yes...I would have to agree with that!

Benefit's Lollitint is due for release in Australian stores February 15th.

All Lolli'd up on the lips and cheeks!


I used the applicator brush to dot the tint onto my cheeks, and then used the elf Small Stipple Brush to blend it out. The pigment sinks into the skin very quickly, I found it best to just dot one cheek at a time and blend quickly! I used two layers of the tint on both my lips and cheeks for the photo above,just to see how the colour built up. Lollitint definitely packs a bigger, brighter punch than its warmer toned sister, Posietint.

Pair it with...

..the Essence Stay With Me Lipgloss in the shade "Deep Rose" is a pretty neutral/cool toned pink gloss with a hint of very fine shimmer, and looks really pretty over the tint. I find these tints a little too drying on the lips to wear alone, and will continue to experiment with some other shades and combinations.

Is a flirty flush your cup of tea? ...Like a pretty pop on your kisser?...Then Lollitint will be for you!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

  1. This colour is soo pretty! It looks gorgeous on you :) I've barely tried any Benefit products so maybe I need to keep an eye out for Lollitint when it hits stores!

    1. Hi Sarah! It is very pretty! I have only just started purchasing a few benefit products, enjoying them so far, but just wish they were a little cheaper! Try and wait for a good deal, honestly, I would probably regret spending $50 on this had I purchased it. A nice bright pink cream blush would give you the same flush of colour. Lou xo

  2. oo the colour looks lovely! So lucky that you seen that offer!!


    1. Hey lovely, it really is a very pretty shade, and it was pure luck that I did see the offer!! I'm not normally that lucky!! Thanks so much for your lovely comment, Lou xo
