I wanted this for ages because I found that original benetint gave a lovely colour to my lips but was too hard to apply and it was very drying. This was much better than Benetint. I usually wear it with Rosebud salve underneath for extra moisture. It smelt good but the taste was awful. It was too expensive and it didn't last very long on my lips. For some weird reason it makes my mouth very dry too. ???. I agree with other reviewers that if it came in a stick form, i would buy it again. I have discovered that this makes a wonderful blush though.
