I wanna do da CHA CHA!

Afternoon my lovelies!!
I've been harping on about wanting BeneFit Cha Cha Tint since it first came out. Yes, I know I'm EXTREMELY late to the party on this one, but I've FINALLY got the chance to own it. I picked it up as part payment for my services as a BeneBabe last Saturday promoting 'They're Real' in Boots and i'm chuffed to pieces with it. This afternoon i have finally had the opportunity to play around with it properly and i thought i'd share the results with you lovely ladies....

You girls probably know the drill with BeneTints by now so i'll skim through it quickly...
Cha Cha Tint is a Mango-tinted lip and cheek stain. BeneFit describe it as a 'Tropical Sunset Hue'.
They recommend brushing three strokes onto the apples of the cheeks and blending with the fingers. HOWEVER, I find if i put a little on my hand then brush it on with the end of a foundation brush i get a more even result. That was a little trick a picked up from the girls last week and it works a treat! You can use a little or a lot depending on how TROPICAL you're feeling at the time. 
For the lips its a no-brainer really. Just dab it on and blend it with your fingertips. I usually pop a bit of Carmex over the top of these tints just to give a little shine and i did the same for these photos.

Gah.... once again my beard (which i thought i did away with after the last lip photos) has made a reappearance. Goddammit!!
This colour just screams VEGAS VOLT to me after seeing these pics. It's so similar in colour but is more subtle and definitely lasts longer. On the cheeks it gives a lovely glow. I put way more on for these photos than i normally would as i needed it to show up on camera, but its VERY pretty!! 

So there's the total-face ChaCha effect!! A bit much for a shift at work so i have since powdered over it like a maniac and replaced it on my lips with my ol' faithful Nude Rimmel lippy. 
I didn't find this a pain to apply or to blend. I did have issues with BeneTint but i think that has more to do with the shade than the product. PosieTint does not show up on my cheeks but I love it on my lips but, unlike PosieTint i would not wear Cha Cha Tint as an everyday lip colour. Well, not for work at least. 

What do you think of lip stains?? Do you own Cha Cha Tint or did you skip it??


  1. I dont own any of these but love the idea of a 2 in 1 product & this colour would be my first choice. Looks lovely on the lips, stains are great as they reduce the need for touch ups, im prone to licking off lipstick & gloss! Xx

  2. This is such a gorgeous lip colour! You really suit it x

  3. I think it looks gorgeous, Im surprised at how well it actually shows up on the lips!!!xxx

  4. Argh I want it now, beautiful on the lips :)

  5. I had the sales assistant put this on me and I love it but haven’t taken the plunge and brought it yet. It looks lovely on you.
