Benefit Cha Cha Tint Review!

Hi Everyone,
Hope you're all well.
Today I am going to do a review on the Benefit Cha Cha Tint that was free in October's InStyle. This is only a sample size, but it is actually really convenient as you get to try out the product first. 

The packaging I think is quite sweet. The applicator is like a nail varnish applicator so you can get quite a precise line.  

The Benefit website describes this product as;

"This mango-tinted stain beautifully blushes lips & cheeks with a tropical sunset hue. Smooch-proof & smudge-proof, this sheer stain will have you looking deliciously sun-kissed for hours."

Swatched on your hand, the product actually looks sheer and a very pretty coral colour. However, once on your lips I find it to be a bright orange/red colour, which was actually quite disappointing as I was hoping for it to be quite a sheer flush of coral to my lips. 
To get an even coat, you do have to put on a couple of coats which does build the intensity.   I did try and use this on my cheeks, but I found the product really hard to blend so I was left with a blob of colour on my cheeks which really wasn't a good look. 
However, when on my lips I found that it stayed on throughout the whole day like they claim. 
But because I find it drying throughout the day, I do touch up just to add a bit of moistness to my lips. 

On the whole I am on the fence about this product. I think the lasting power is amazing and if you like a bright orange/red colour then this would be perfect. However for me I find it too drying for my lips, especially as we are into the colder months, and I find the colour a bit too  intense. 
The product retails for £24.50 which I think is quite a lot but then again I think the bottle would last a long time. 

Let me know what you think down below, and I also hope you enjoyed this post.
Thank you for reading, and please follow if you want to as it would really brighten up this cold and wet Monday,
