I purchased this in the shade Deep Berry 029 before realizing that Essence cosmetics makes a lip tint that's much more affordable. I wouldn't repurchase this only because it costs CAD$16 vs. the Essence Tint & Colour Shot in 05 Classic Simplicity, which was CAD$3.99. Granted the amount of product is wildly different in each (7.2ml vs. 1.8ml), but if you're like me and don't tend to go through products quickly, you'd be better off purchasing the Essence lip tint. Both shades are nearly identical, and wear time is similar, although I found myself reapplying more often with The Body Shop's lip stain. I also noticed that if I eat or drink, the product rubs off easily even though it's supposed to stain the lips, not sit on top. The whole reason I wanted a lip stain/tint was because I don't wear a lot of makeup and I don't like anything that's fussy or that I need to reapply constantly, but still wanted something for days when I'd like to be more made up, so it was disappointing that it didn't last as long as I'd hoped.

Expensive! Leaves your lips partially tinted (I tried the darker shade, and people asked me if I was okay since I had a bleeding lip. As a blusher it stained too quickly to properly blend in and left an unhealthy looking flush. Definitely not purchasing again

I purchased this in Deep Berry and Dusty Rose. The formulas appear different between these two. In the Dusty Rose, the color is very similar to a natural pink lip color. I have added some of the Deep Berry to darken the color slightly. The price is around $15 but you can get deals at the store to help reduce the cost. It is not a liquid as others have mentioned. The issues I have between the Dusty Rose are that the Dusty Rose leaves a white residue after drying. I have to re-moisten my lips to make it go away. That does not happen with the Deep Berry however withe Deep Berry I do get some bleeding into my lines. I have tried to line the outer lip with a pencil hoping that helps. It does not last through a meal but can last several hours if not drinking or eating. I would probably not repurchase. I also would not recommend the Dusty Rose as it does not add enough color and with the other issues, just not worth the cost. If I can get the bleeding issues resolved, I would consider purchasing the Deep Berry (which is more of a bright red color).

I use the original shade 01 stain. It is basically a much more affordable version of Benetint lip and cheek stain. The main reason why I use this is because it enhances the natural colour of my lips but still allows me to enjoy kissing my husband without the stress of getting gunk all over his face. For this reason alone I will keep repurchasing!! Oh, and you can keep applying loads and it still looks really nice and doesn't stain!

I love this lip stain, it is the just flushed natural kind of pink that all lip stains wish they were. I adore this product and have been faithfully using it for more than a year. If you ever stop making it...I will cry big crocodile tears. Have re-purchased 3 X already and just stocked up on the buy 3 get 3, most coveted item in my beauty arsenal

I have this in 026 Bright Peony. It's a pretty good cheek and lip stain, although I've only used it on the lips. Very easy and quick to apply, dries down after a minute or two. The new formulation is great, very pigmented and has some moisture, it only starts to dry my lips out very lightly after an hour or 2. The price is also decent compared to some of the other stuff out there I got it for $24 (in Australia). If I don't eat it will stay on for about 4-5 hours, but if I eat it removes most of the product immediately leaving only a very faint stain. However it does reapply fairly well - no streakiness. Also it doesn't bleed or feather at all and doesn't need a lip liner. I found that there is a bit of transfer/crumbling onto cups etc. but if I blotted it with a tissue a couple of times after applying and drying the product, it was mostly fine. Main con would be that there was a very limited colour range, really wish there was more to choose from as it was mostly bright pinks and reds. That being said I want to try a red one next.

In looking for a dupe for benetint (for lips) that doesn't cost $40 CAD, I gave this a try for around $10. The color (Deep Berry) is great and the effect is exactly what I like in a stain, very subtle and brightens your complexion without looking or feeling like you're wearing any lip product. I took two lippies off though because the product just isn't as liquid as benetint... Its more of a goop, and too much product is on the applicator. So when you apply a little bit to your lips and press them together, the product just goops up on the edges of your lips rather than spreading evenly. You have to take your finger or a separate brush to spread the product out for an even layer. The problem with that is it's a stain... It stays on my fingertip through hours until I am able to scrub it off. Also, it doesn't last that long on lips. While I do drink a lot of water and it doesn't transfer to the glass, it still wears off in about 4 hours.I really don't think benetint is worth it for the amount of product you get and the hefty price, so I will keep trying different substitutes. This one is probably fine if you aren't bothered by the messy application, but personally, I'll keep searching.

I search for some reviews to convince myself to buy this product or not, cuz my mom told me to buy nyx lip matte than buy this. But, after I found some reviews and bcs Im so curious with this product, then I bought this yay. And............ luckily, this product amaze me *except its price*I really like its red color with some blink blink, even when I apply it when it still wet or after a bit dry.It has a long stick and it really helps me to apply the lipstain on my lips. But, I never apply it on my cheek till now, bcs I have sensitive cheek and it blush easily, so Im afrai it'll make my cheek overly-redSo, if you like half-lipgloss-half-lipstick product, yet you dont want them both, you should try this. And theres 2 color options, pink-purple and red. I never try the pink-purple on bcs Im in love with the red one.

I love this product! I hate putting lipstick everyday or having to fix every now and then. This lipstain saved me! I put around 2-3 coats to get an amazing red-natural colour and i use a clear lip balm over it and i'm done! It lasts sooo long and even when it fades it doesn't look bad. Only thing is.. be sure to exfoliate before using it because it doesn't look good on chaped lips.
