Benefit ChaCha Tint Review, Photos and Swatches

After playing with my new ChaCha Tint for some time I can finally write my thoughts about the product.

It should be available here very soon now, but it’s already available in the US for $29 (for 12.5 ml). I’ve asked my friend to get me this set which was an amazing deal in May.

To tell the truth, I didn’t even plan to get the ChaCha Tint, as I  want to get try the Posie Tint finally but I couldn’t miss such a great deal since I was getting some products from the US back then anyway.

I have to say that I really regret that I never ordered this set, I have no idea what I was thinking about.

But back to the ChaCha Tint… I really like the  design and the package, it is so Benefit and looks great for summer.

It is described as a mango-tinted stain for lips and cheeks and  I agree with the description. It’s just a shame that it doesn’t smell like mango, too.

I know that that the formula is compared to the Posie Tint and according to swatches I can also see some similarities. But, as I have only Benetint, I can say that ChaCha has a thicker and more gel-like consistency.

The colour looks really intense in the bottle and it really is, so you have to blend it out really well, especially if you have a fair skin like I do. I assume that it would look great on the  dark skin tones and I can’t wait to try it on tanned and dark skin tones.

How to apply it?

As it is a stain, I would recommend

Product Placement: Gossip Girl and Chanel Makeup

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now and the conversation with the lovely Daniel Sandler on twitter(don’t forget to follow him…yes, that Daniel Sandler, Make Up Artist, and yes, you are right when you are thinking about the Watercolours ).

So today’s topic is makeup in films and shows. The question is… Do you think that every time you see a beauty product in a film or show – the company paid for that. Or was it just a part of the plot that the actress had to use lipstick/mascara/powder/perfumes/whatever and it was just a random choice, not a particular brand.

If it is a product placement (this is how it is called) why do they show the product for a second only and, unless you are  very good at brands, you will never recognize what brand it was. Plus most people couldn’t care less, only us, makeup fans, always want to know what product was shown (or is it just me?!)

The other question. Who cares? I mean would you get something because Carrie uses this beauty product or Blair uses that beauty product?  Maybe I would care and this would influence me when I was  a teenager, although I can’t imagine where from I would have money to buy Chanel makeup, but now… I mean come on? Does it really work?

The other thing is when you see your favourite celebrity using a certain makeup product in real life! Remember how Angelina Jolie was spotted using Chantecaille gloss? Well, I read that it was sold out within hours. Amazing, isn’t it?!

So
