Even though I love lipsticks with all my heart, I have those days when I just don’t feel like wearing one. Especially during the summer, I tend to enjoy lip stains and tints a lot more than lipsticks. They’re weightless and their application is usually hassle-free. After having a positive experience with my Etude House tints, I decided to splurge a little and got my hands on Gogotint by Benefit.
Benefit is world-famous for its tints, and I wanted to see what the hype is all about. Let’s find out!

Release your inner rebel with color that lasts! Just a heads up… gogotint’s flush will get you lots of flattery. Not used to all the attention? Just respond “thank you cherry much”…they’ll get the hint!

My Experience with Benefit Cosmetics Gogotint Cherry Red Lip & Cheek Stain
The product comes in a lovely bright pink colored packaging. The white cap has to be rotated to open and close the bottle. Overall, I think that reflective packaging is quite pretty and photogenic, keeping in line with most Benefit products.
The packaging actually looks a lot like nail polish. The applicator is a brush that I’m not a huge fan of. It sometimes tends to disperse more product than required, making it tricky to control the amount of product especially when you’re new to Benefit tints.
If you have used Benetint, you will know that its consistency is water-thin and very runny. The consistency of Gogotint is quite different. It’s gel-like and a little bit thicker than Benetint. The pigmentation of this product is extremely high.
A little bit of Gogotint goes a long way. Just a couple of small dots are adequate to create a pretty stained effect on the cheeks. Attention needs to be paid however because if you use more than needed you can end up with clown cheeks. Once this product sets, it’s almost impossible to remove it instantly so I highly recommend going slow and building it up as needed.
As opposed to the brand’s description of the product being cherry red, the product is actually more of bright pink. On the lips, Gogotint can go from blush pink to hot pink, depending on how much you layer it. It will neither moisturize your lips nor dry them out, and it will simply add a tint to your lips. The color will suit all skin tones.
No matter how much you layer this lip tint, it will not become cakey or flakey. It is extremely lightweight and stays put throughout the day. I have very oily skin, but the tint didn’t budge from my cheeks. Even after eating or drinking, the tint does not disappear from the lips.
It is available in 2 sizes. I picked the smaller bottle because I wanted to test the product out. It is quite expensive, but it lasts for a really long time so I think that it’s worth the price.
- High pigmentation
- Suits all skin tones
- Does not become cakey
