Benefit Benetint VS Givenchy Blush Gelee

I recently received both of these products as a gift. I'm not much of a makeup person but I know my way around a good tint. I've had benetint pocket pal for ages. I use it a lot and it's lasted really well.



Benetint blurb-

"Our original rose-tinted stain is kiss-proof, see-through color for lips and cheeks. It's the sexiest flush you can get from a bottle! What else you need to know:Naturally sheer and sexy on all complexions...innocent yet provocative.

Originally created for an exotic dancer in the 1970's, benetint has soared to cult fave status. It's loved by celebs, makeup artists and gals around the world!"

£24.50


Pros, Benetint has a cult following for a good reason. It's a colour you really can't get from any other products and it stays put for ages.
Cons, It stains everywhere. It's always all over my hands/fingers/random places I don't remember touching. It's also more expensive than Blush Gelee.


Blush Gelee blurb-
"A unique integrated soft foam applicator, with a very soft end, that slightly touches the skin to leave the ideal touch of emotion on cheeks! A skin-like buildable result : a very natural fresh rosy glow on cheeks, for a healthy “pinched cheeks” look…"


£23

Pros , The consistency of this product is so easy to work with, you can build it up bit by bit for a stronger colour or just a bit for a bit of colour. I'm not 100% sure but I think they have many different colours (I can only find candide pink). The applicator means no staining.
Cons, I can't think of many. The packaging makes it a bit hard to squeeze the right amount of product on to the applicator. Product is also wasted on the applicator.


AND THE WINNER IS

Benetint. Simply, the colour beats everything, buy a brush to avoid staining.
