Unlike Benefit’s longstanding liquid blush Benetint, Chacha Tint has an opaque, lotion-like texture that is easier to work with. This fragrance-free, liquidy cheek color sets quickly, so blending must be swift, but it offers a bit more playtime than Benetint, so you’re less likely to make a mistake.

Cha Cha Tint imparts a soft, sheer peachy pink coloration that looks fresh and attractive—and it lasts! It doesn’t leave a shimmering finish, instead making cheeks look lit-from-within. All told, if you like the color and want an alternative to powder blush, Cha Cha Tint is worth checking out.

The formula is suitable for all skin types—and it won’t magnify the appearance of large pores like Benetint (and other liquid or gel blushes) can.

Pros:
  • Surprisingly easy to apply, although blending must be swift.
  • Imparts a sheer, peachy pink color that leaves cheeks looking lit-from-within.
  • Won’t make large pores look dotted with color like standard gel or liquid blushes do.
  • Long-lasting color.
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • Expensive.
  • Not everyone will like the sole color available.

Brand Overview

Benefit At-A-Glance

Benefit was developed by twins Jean Danielson and Jane Blackford, whose initial claim to fame was a stint as the Calgon twins back in 1960s television commercials. They opened their first cosmetics store, The Face Place, in San Francisco, circa 1976, and then, perhaps recognizing the need for a name with more impact, The Face Place became Benefit in 1990. From there the line took off and expanded its presence beyond the Bay Area to include national department stores and, eventually, Sephora boutiques.

Benefit's makeup philosophy is outrageously fun and its product arsenal is centered on impossibly cute names and a lexicon that aims to make beauty enjoyable. Benefit single-handedly started the trend of selling makeup and skincare products with ultra-cute appellations for less than ultra-fancy prices. As with most lines, there are enough missteps and problem products to shop carefully, but Benefit shines in several categories, including foundation, bronzing powder, blush, and shimmer products.

Unfortunately, some of the products simply can't live up to their promises. This is mostly true of their skincare formulas, where the showcased ingredients are either present in itsy-bitsy amounts or the claims attributed to them are very exaggerated. Despite this, if you're in the mood for a fun experience and can manage to choose products wisely while enjoying the whimsy, Benefit deserves a look.
