East Vs West: K-Beauty Dupes for the Benefit Lip Tints

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be showing you some KBeauty dupes for the Benefit Lip Tints! I reviewed the Benefit Lip Tints earlier on in the year, and I was really surprised at the price point of the products considering I had products that were almost identical in my collection for a fraction of a price. If you prefer to purchase branded cosmetics you do you boo, if it makes you happy then do it! However for me $57 per shade is un-achievable, so Ive picked out my favourite dupes for the range for less than $10 each.
Lollitint
Lollitint is a beautiful orchid shade, and the Too Cool for School Milk Tint in Milky Lavender is the absolute perfect dupe. Below I have the Milky Lavender on the left and the Lollitint on the right. For me, this is the perfect dupe as the TCFS has a great doe foot applicator which makes it so much easier to apply than the Lollitint too.

Price Breakdown
$57NZD for 12.5ml
$4.56 p/g 

 $6.34NZD for 9.5g
$0.66 p/g
Posietint
 
Posietint is fairly easy to dupe, it's a standard baby pink lip tint, though it is slightly different than most baby pink tints as it is a fraction on the cooler side (it's a purple-pink rather than a peachy-pink). Both the Too Cool for School Milk Tint in Milky Pink and the Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in PK001 are great dupes, though the Etude House is the closest colour. Again, both the Etude House and the TCFS have nicer applicators in comparison to the Benefit.



Price Breakdown
$57NZD for 12.5ml
$4.56 p/g 

 $6.34 for 9.5g
$0.66 p/g 
 $5.95 for 9.g
$0.66 p/g
Chachatint
Chachatint was slightly harder to dupe. It's a really beautiful mango like orange so it is a pretty particular colour. I find the Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in OR201 is a little too peachy, but the TCFS Milk Tint in Milky Orange is a pretty perfect match. The TCFS is a little sheerer, but this only requires two coats to match the shade of Chachatint.


Price Breakdown
$57NZD for 12.5ml
$4.56 p/g 

 $6.34 for 9.5g
$0.66 p/g

 $5.95 for 9.g
$0.66 p/g


Benetit
The Benetint was another hard one to dupe because the formula is so sheer most of the other tints needed to be diluted slightly to get the full effect. There are three good dupes for Benefit, the Peripera Vivid Tint Water in Apple Squeeze is the closest to both the texture and colour. The Too Cool for School Milk Tint in Milky Red is a very good colour dupe, but since it's a milk tint the texture does look slightly different to the water tint. The TonyMoly Tony Tint in Cherry was listed as the official dupe for this tint, but for me I think it's definitely more on the pink side. To be fair, the colour difference really isn't noticeable far away, the HD photos do really show the little details!


Price Breakdown
$57NZD for 12.5ml
$4.56 p/g 

 $6.34 for 9.5g
$0.66 p/g

$3.51 for 9g
$0.39 p/g

$6.48 for 5.5ml
$1.17 
Final Thoughts
If you like the look of the Benefit Lip Tints, but don't want to pay the price of Benefit Lip Tints, this is going to be the perfect cheat sheet for you! I'm not trying to belittle Benefit in any way, but realistically there will be a lot of people who just can't afford $57 for each shade, but can afford between $3-7 for each shade. You are paying for the brand name in this case, all of these K-Beauty lip tint dupes last for just as long (if not longer) and all come with doe foot applicators which I personally much prefer. The reason that I've titled this K-Beauty Dupes is also because lip tints are a huge thing in the K-beauty world and have been for quite some time, so there are many different varieties around which would help me find the closest colour and texture match. 

If I was to suggest getting one entire line to dupe the Benefit line I would definitely suggest the Too Cool for School Milk Tints, for all four shades it costs $26NZD, less than half the price of one Benefit Tint.
