Benefit Benebalm

Hello hello!!

Benefit is a well known and loved company in the beauty community, and for good reason. I love their boxes powders and blushes, the porefessional, gimme brow, and I cannot rave enough about the roller lash. But that was as far as my benefit collection went until my good friend Kim sent me a box of Benefit goodies from wining the #curlfriends contest that I was a part of!

Which brings me to Benefit's Bennbalm. 

On Benefits Website Benetint is described as 'a rose tinted kiss of sheer buildable cooler that gives you soft, sexy lips' and it also 'hydrates with mango butter and sodium hyaluronate'.  This's also comes in three different shades, posibalm, cha cha blam, and lollibalm which are pink, coral, and berry toned.

Here is a swatch, and it's definitely a sheer formula like it deacribed. 

My Thoughts-
-I don't find this very buildable, but I do like that it's a sheer formula. It gives a nice wash of color on days where you want minimal makeup, or just want some shine to your lips. 
-It's also a great topper for lipsicks. 
-The formula is very mosirurizing and doesn't feel heavy at all. 
-Overall I'm really pleased with this lip balm. It's $18, but I feel like it's better formulated than the Nyx and other brands I've tried!


Have you tired any of Benefits Balms? Let me know in the comments!

  1. You're a natural beauty, Ashley and frankly I don't think you need much or any makeup at all. This has to be one of the prettiest I've seen you (mind you, you're always pretty), the makeup is so soft, natural and looks like you just finished working out so you have the natural flush.

    I am not a fan of sheer lip products so this is just not for me. I like my lip products to pack a punch, full blown colour. LOL!

    1. Aww thank you Shireen! That is so sweet of you to say!! I'm actually going to do a look similar to this on my youtube channel very soon!!

      And yes I usually don't like my lip colors sheer but I felt like I needed something with this look that wasn't so 'Bam'!

  5. I would probably use this as just a lip balm when I wanted to moisturize lips since its so sheer.

  6. Hi Ashley! :) I've always love Benefit makeup products. I find that they always make cute and amazing products. Will definitely need to get my hands on these benebalm soon. I've tried a few of their products which I love but not this. I think this will be a great one for everyday use. :)

  9. Looks great on you Ashley! I wasn't impressed when they came out with these balms. They felt good, but I felt that they needed a little more color. Like they were too light! I have the posie tint & balm, but I haven't tried it yet. I'll eventually get to it, but we're about to go into Fall and I feel funny talking about it in particular LOL because it is such a summer color. The one you have can work year round :)

    1. Thanks Kim! I do feel like they could use more color to them too, but they are so great for lazy days with minimal makeup! And at least you can save the posie tints and balms for next spring!!
