My new favorite!

I am long time lover and user of Posietint, however, it's always nice to stray away and try new shades/types of makeup. So, I first gave Bella Bamba a try. I liked it, but it was a little too pink on my fair skin, and the wrong shade of pink at that. After I finished it off, I decided I would next try out Coralista. It is truly my favorite blush I have ever purchased!
It reminds me a lot of Georgia Peach, a box-o-powder that Benefit discontinued quite some time ago. I loved Georgia to set my foundation and give me a peachy tone, Coralista is like the Georgia of cheeks! The peachy pink is PERFECT for me! It is NOT orange like it may seem when looking at the powder itself. It works great on whiter than white me, and it works great on my much darker mother (who has FINALLY bought her own after stealing mine every morning for weeks!) Thank you Benefit, NEVER discontinue Coralista!
Oh, and it smells FANTASTIC!!

I really liked this stuff, however, as a setting powder, it took a lot. So, I went through it quickly. It is beautiful, though! Really gives you a nice glow, while still being non-shiny and nice and matte. I love it to touch up throughout the day!

It's a fun little product, if you've got $20 to drop on lip gloss, then heck yeah! The combo of posie and california kissin is fabulous! If you've got a nice event to attend, like a wedding or prom for example, it lasts for a very long time and it looks great. Nifty to-go posietint+california kissin--in one!
Loved that it's flattering

It smells lovely, it blends easily, and it is smooth! That Gal really does brighten my face no matter what I put on over it. Just remember not to use too much, a little will do the job, and it leaves face silky smooth! My makeup doesn't slip off one bit throughout the day!
Loved that it's Smooth, silky

I am guilty of the smokey eye obsession. I never used to be, but I now feel naked unless I have made my eyes smokey. I LOVE this kit. It has nice little directions, and with practice for first-timers, a lovely smokey eye can be achieved with ease thanks to this kit. The colors are fantastic, the black is nice and matte, and it blends easily. Thank you Benefit!!
Loved that it's matte, easy, flattering

Georgia was and is my FAVORITE box-o-powder ever! I was SO SAD when I found that it got discontinued, I am going to order as many as I can this time around so I always have a nice supply just in case!!
I don't have perfect skin, there's discoloration, redness, etc. Georgia is a great way to even it out. It truly works better than a highlighter for me, it has a beautiful peachy glow and it looks so nice on my super light skin. I feel airbrushed and flawless. I love it so much. During the warmer days, I won't even use another powder to set my foundation--I'll just use Georgia! The "peachy" glow is just perfect enough, and it compliments my much darker toned mother as well! Great product!
And it smells AMAZING! Thank you Benefit!!!!!
Loved that it's flawless, beautiful, nice glow, flattering

This is AMAZING! I was always a faithful Bad Gal user, but this is absolutely amazing. That brush finds lashes that you didn't even know you had! I've never had a mascara like it, nothing comes close. I recommend it to ANYONE who is living in one big mascara dilemma, just one coat is enough, and as someone who usually has to apply 8 coats before I get what I like, that is saying A LOT!
TRY IT!
Loved that it's amazing, beautiful

I LOVE ultra shines! I have it in "Patootie", and I love topping it over "Lana" in long lasting lipstick, or wearing alone! The color isn't too intense, nor is the shine, it is a perfect combination of the two! The shine reflects light beautifully for a dazzling smile. I just love it so much! Adds a little extra something to my face! And I always get compliments! A truly GREAT lipgloss (which is tough to find!) Bravo Benefit!
Loved that it's brilliant, beautiful

I love this lipstick. I had it in "Lana" (which I don't see up there anymore) but it was a pinky almost purpilish looking color--in the tube! Once on, it looked AMAZING! It was almost a frosty kind of color, it was so pretty and added the perfect "pop" to my face.
I top with Ultra Shines in Patootie, and it looks gorgeous!

Gives me beautiful cheekbones!

Although I have cheekbones that are visible, they are not extremely prominent or noticeable. With this little box of amazing powder, I can easily achieve celebrity status cheeks.
My mom used it a couple of times, and she almost has nonexistent cheekbones--even her face looked thinner and her "cheekbones" popped!
The bronze next to the pinky highlighter is just an amazing combo, and the bronze is not too intense. I have very light skin and it never overpowers my face, only gives me beautiful, sexy cheekbones.
After doing my cheeks, I like to take my brush, swirl it around in both colors, tap off excess, and then sweep across my forehead and nose for extra highlight and bronze power on my face!
Tip--Make sure you blend! I sometimes will get harsh lines if I go for a little darker bronze power on my cheekbones, like during summer, but blending is no big deal, it blends beautifully!
Loved that it's incredible

Should I dare?

I am an NC25-NC30 with warm undertones and dark hair and eyes. I have never thought that bright pink was in my color palette, but lately I've been hearing good things about Posie Tint from people with darker skin tones.
What do you think? Should I go for it?
Absolutely!! I have super light skin, I am actually NC15--one shade lighter!--and it looks fabulous on me. Posietint actually looks better on lighter skin, while it's darker, older sister Benetint is the one for the darker gals. You will look fabulous, I never thought a rosey pink color would look good on me either (I thought I was going to look like a clown!) back when the girl at the Benefit counter put it on me, but it really flatters light skin. It is very intimidating when you see it straight out of the tube, but once blended into skin, it's amazing!

is 10 really dark ?

is it really dark or would it fit all skin tones ?
I'm super, super light, and I loved 10. I liked to take a fluffy brush and swirl it in the two colors (rather than use the long rectangular brush included in order to swipe both colors along the cheek) and it was a lovely, bronzey color on me. The brown is quite intimidating in the package, but on the skin, it is gorgeous and really takes quite a bit to ever go "to dark" for your skin. It's build-able, too! So if it is not dark enough, it goes darker and darker very easily! I loved it, hence why I no longer have it--I used it all!

Can high brow be used on the cheeks as a highlighter as well?

I suppose it could!

However, you'd just need to do a lot of blending. High brow is a little thicker since it is supposed to "lift" your face. It IS a highlighter, but the idea of high brow is to open up your face and, like I said, lift it. Your cheeks don't need to be lifted!

Also, the color is very vibrant, even when blended. I suppose if you apply just a few dots and blend, it would be fine. However, it is more matte than shimmery, so your cheeks won't be shiny or standout like they would with high beam.

So, go ahead and give it a try! See if you like it, your cheeks likely will stand out, but won't have that glossy appeal that can be achieved using highlighters like 10, high beam, etc.

Good luck!

how can i make lipstick more long lasting?

Benefit has a GREAT lip primer called lip plump. It makes lips plump and beautiful, without that burn that other plumpers do. In fact, it minimizes lines on lips for smooth lips.
But, most importantly, it is a PRIMER which means lipstick actually does stick onto it, and every time I use it my lipstick lasts hours longer!
I suggest going into a boutique or to a counter and having them try it on you with your favorite lipstick and color over it, and see how you like it. I love it!

Does it run in the heat?

How well does this hold up in the heat and humidity? I'm a huge fan of the She Laq because my brows do not run with it on. I'd like to try this but if it runs when it's hot I don't want to bother.
I've been using this every day of summer, and it absolutely holds up in the 97-103 degree weather. The only time I find that it starts to come off is when I'm rough-housing and wiping my face a lot, then it will surely start to come off. Otherwise, nothing can beat this stuff. I love it and no other brow product has worked so well for me!

What is the purpose of the powder in the Brow-zings kit?

I use and love the wax, but can't seem to grasp how to use the powder.
The powder is there to fill in any sparse areas you may have. Also, it latches onto the wax to make brows more defined and natural looking. I agree, I don't think the powder is always necessary, but I much prefer the powder on top to really help that stuff stick, stay, and last all day!

How do you stop Posietint from leaking?

I can't carry it with me, and I can't carry it in my makeup bag because it leaks any time it's not upright. It' had to stain the lining of my purse before I realized that. It also gets caked up inside the cap but outside the bottle. Does everyone's do this? Help!
I've owned many different bottles of posietint many different times, and I've never had leakage problems! I transported everyday to school and town. Maybe you just got a faulty bottle. I am terribly sorry, I'd go crazy!

As for the caking, the only way mine will cake is if I leave it unscrewed or leave the cap off for extended periods of time. It seems doing this dries out the product, and causes caking, so I screw the cap back on immediately after I use!

Good luck with your next bottle! Don't let this faulty one ruin your love for posietint!
