Benefit’s Benetint is one of those makeup bag staples that every beauty editor and beauty junkie seems to own no matter what. It’s not hard to see why it’s a universal favorite: Just a few swipes of this rose-hued cheek and lip stain gives you a seriously pretty flush that lasts for hours.
But while you might be more than familiar with the product, do you know about the cheeky—dare we say slightly racy—origins of Benetint?
Editorial Intern Charisse keeps her blonde hue bright with a little help from this color protecting wonder.

This spring we’re getting smart about protecting our pricey highlights with a simple solution: shampoo designed for color-treated hair. Prep your strands for sunnier days (and keep them safe from dulling UV rays) by loading up your shower caddy with one of our most recent favorites: Nick Chavez® Beverly Hills’ Color-Saver Sulfate Free Shampoo.
