REVIEW: Benefit's Chachatint and Chachabalm

When Lennard decided to make a trip back to Singapore a couple of months back, I got him to get me Benefit's latest babies from the States; Benebalm, Posiebalm, Chachabalm and Lollibalm. Yes, all 4 - something which he couldn't comprehend.

"Why do you need 4 lip balms and they are so expensive la?!?"
"Because I'm a girl?" *gives him the duh face*

Haha. Anyway, I wanted to see how orange would look on my Asian skin tone the other day so I pulled out my mini Chachatint (Bought from Singapore Best Buy World.), Chachabalm and to create an entire Benefit look, the World's Famous Neutrals kit (Bought from Daily Vanity.) as well, and proceeded to take a million and one photos (Yes, I took many product shots that day. The sun was kind and the lighting was perf.).

The Chachatint is described as a mango-tint that bathes your lips and cheeks with a beautiful tropical coral hue. And of course, the Chachabalm is the accompaniment for it, except that it's just meant for the lips. The latter is formulated with mango butter and sodium hyaluronate to give you the softest and juiciest lips.

I drew 3 tiny strokes of Chachatint on each of my cheeks and blended them in with my fingers. And because I was using a liquid foundation beneath, my cheeks did not feel dry. For my lips, I used only Chachabalm. It was rather sheer but it did lend some colour to my lips. It was definitely hydrating and I like that it was a tad glossy without being the least bit sticky.

Ending off with a peek at the eyeshadows from the World's Famous Neutrals kit. (:
