I'm not a huge Benefit cosmetics lover, I personally don't see it as any better than Revlon/Maybelline etc. Therefore I'm not interested in paying their overly inflated prices for such simple cosmetics. Especially when you can find duplicates of their products from other brands for significantely less!
2true is a make up brand exclusive to Superdrug, and I have used them in the past for basics. All of their items are £1.95 each, or 3 for £5! Their matte pressed powder is infact my favourite everyday powder, as I find it very light but still good enough to give me a matte finish. While looking at buying my regular powder, I was also tempted into buying both of their cheek tints.
Benefit do Benetint and Posietint cheek tint, which retail for £24.50 each! Super expensive in my opinion. These ones from 2True are only £1.95 each - a massive 90%+ saving! And Catherine from Catherine Loves blog shows that they are both almost exactly the same as the Benefit versions. She has some photos of the two, which give a better comparison.
The pink Cheek and Lip tint in shade 2 (pink) has a creamy texture, and it comes out on the brush a very bright barbie pink! But once it's blended in it gives a lovely girly glow. I found this very easy to use and it lasts quite well too. Please excuse my very tired eyes!
shade 1 (red) has more of a inky stain texture to it, rather than creamy. It is a runny liquid, which I found doesn't blend as easily, but it lasts longer.
Overall, I prefer the pink stain as I like to have feminine pinky cheeks, but the red stain has great lasting power! And they can both be used on lips! I think that they are a great dupe for the benefit products, and that £1.95 each is an absolute steal! I also really recommend the 2true matte face powder!
You can buy these products for £1.95 each from Superdrug.
