Benefit Lollitint is the latest product from Benefit doing the rounds on the beauty blogs, and it's one of those that made it's way to the top of my wishlist as soon as I saw it. I've used a couple of the tints from Benefit before, my favourite being Cha Cha Tint that regularly sits in my bag always being reached for come summer. 

Lollitint is described as a 'candy-orchid' shade, a lilac-pink hue perfect for spring. I was a little nervous that it would ridiculous on me, being relatively pale, but I actually think it would suit the majority of skintones. On the lips it's really buildable too, so if you're unsure you can wear it quite sheer, or apply a few layers for a more bold look. It's not the easiest of things to apply on the go, but it really does stick around that it's only really necessary after eating or drinking. I apply a couple of swipes to the lips and dab in with my fingers.

I love that the tints are multi-use too, and these can be used as a blusher also. I apply a couple of light strokes upwards around the apples of my cheeks and quickly but gently blend with my Real Techniques Expert Face brush. Again, it's buildable but looks really natural and pretty. It does dry relatively quickly so you do have to get blending pretty sharpish. I don't know about you, but blush is always the first thing to disappear from my make-up, but this literally sticks around until the end of the day. I can see myself using these so much especially when the weather is a bit warmer because they do not budge! At £24.50 it's definitely not the cheapest product ever, but you only need the tiniest amount so it should last for ages.

Have you tried this? What did you think?
