Hot on the Highstreet Week 59

I have never been a big Benefit fan, I tend to find their make-up greasy and overpriced... however I couldn’t help noticing their newest summer product, Cha Cha Tint. This mango tinted lip and cheek stain is the third in a series preceded by the very popular Benetint and Posie tint. The Benetint is very vividly coloured, a bright red that can be quite lethal when you apply it. Posie tint gives more of a shimmery girly sheen, and is used best as a cheekbone highlighter. Cha Cha tint is a safer bet, a more mature, delicate colour that gives a gentle pretty blush.

This tropical sunset hue is perfect for summer days when you want to be as bare-faced and fresh as possible, requiring little effort. The pale orange-pink colour is good for most skin tones, and will give you a subtle sun-kissed glow all year round. I have tried Cha Cha tint on my cheeks and love the orangey glow, it is not as harsh as many blushers and feels creamier and softer on the skin. I am yet to try it on my lips but can imagine it looks glam with a coat of clear lipgloss on top.

Cha Cha tint is a perfect way to update your make up bag for summer - it is priced at (a rather expensive) £24.50 and is available in most big Boots stores, buy online here.


  1. the application of all those bene-whatevers looks tricky though, do you use the brush or a sponge? Do they just blend in like a cream blusher or do you have to be quick as once it's there, it's there!

    so many queries.. anyway! I like the look of the girl meets pearl moon beamy things.

  2. thats such a nice colour,bit more subtle than the posie tint.I like Benefit but I think its a tad overpriced for what it is,might have to make an exception for that bad boy though!x

    @Maya I've got the posie tint and I just dot it on my cheeks and blend really quickly with my fingers.x

  3. This one is a really pretty colour. I like the benefit High beam although I do think its really expensive for what it is! :) X

  4. yes Katie - I agree, dot and smudge, does need to be done quickly though!

  5. I love Benefit tints!

    Eda ♥

  6. Totally agree with you re: greasy and overpriced. I so want to love their stuff though, as the packaging is gorge!

  7. that looks amazing, just what ive been looking for
