Home Made Benetint Lip and Cheek Stain

Martha Price


I just found this on another web site and couldn't wait to post it! I love Benetint lip stain by Benefit - you can make your lips as light or as dark as you want, and the color will last for hours - but it is expensive! Also, I understand that the dye in it is made from crushed insects. Ewww!
This "copycat" stain is made from natural food coloring, which can be found at natural food stores, such as Whole Foods.

How to Make Home Made Benetint Lip and Cheek Stain


  1. Place a TINY amount of the red food coloring on a Q-tip and rub on lips really, really well. Add more (a tiny bit at a time) to deepen color as desired.
  2. P.S. Dry Kool-Aid also works! Lick your lips to moisten and rub with cherry (or whatever) dry Kool-Aid.
