Benefit Tinted Lip Balm (Review and Swatches)

Benefit Tinted Lip Balms Swatches

I first tried the Benefit Tinted Lip Balm around about this time last year – I feel so in love with them, that I filmed a swatches video and took some pictures to do a review here on the blog, but somehow, life got in the way and it ended up gathering dust in my hard drive and never getting published.


So instead of wasting a perfectly good video, I thought I would go ahead and post this anyway, even though it was filmed and photographed a year ago, I don’t think swatches get old – if anything they remain quite useful as part of my archives, in case some of you happen to find my blog whilst searching for swatches of the Benefit Tinted Lip Balm. Enough waffling – press the play button above or click here to watch the video!

The Benefit Tinted Lip Balm is, as the name suggests, a hydrating balm with a hint of colour; it contains mango butter and sodium hyaluronate to keep your lips moisturised and soft, whilst adding a sheer layer of colour. There are four balms available in the collection – BeneBalm, ChaChaBalm, PosieBalm and LolliBalm, and each of them is meant to work perfectly well together with the corresponding Benefit Lip & Cheek Stain. My two favourites are BeneBalm, for a sheer hint of rose colour that makes my lips look really plump and healthy, and Posiebalm, which is a lovely everyday and easy to wear colour on pretty much any skin tone.

These balms are so moisturising and sheer that you don’t have to worry about applying them. If you want them to look more pigmented, you can always build up the colour in layers, or pair them with their sister lip tints from Benefit. Quality-wise, I highly recommend these without even having to think twice about it; if it wasn’t for the rather steep price tag, I wouldn’t be able to fault these balms, however I do think they are a little bit overpriced, even if they are one of the best tinted lip balms out there.

What do you think of the Benefit Tinted Lip Balms? Have you tried them or their sister Lip Stains?

    I have Benefit’s benebalm, and i do quite like it. I have to admit I bought it for the packaging (shiny red with polkadots, hello!), but I was favorably surprised once I put it on. It feels good, stops the sting of my chapped lips. It is thick on the lips, which took getting used to for me. That texture is probably due to the mango butter. Obviously it’s good (I have it on my lips right now) but I have to say though, as far as tinted balms are concerned, the color payoff is a lot higher with Elizabeth Arden’s balm sticks, which are also very lightweight on the lips since they’re moisturizing oils, not butters. You should check them out!
