Benetint lip balm/stain substitute?

The little glass jar has been discontinued. I am bereft. It was the only product I have ever been utterly loyal to.

I have the benefit benetint lip stain in the bottle with the brush but I loved the balm. The fact that it waa only produced in one universal colour meant it was always the perfect colour as it just emphasised your natural lip, and the texture was perfect when applied with a lip brush.
Is there anything similar out there?

Not quite the same but a good substitute which I really like is the Burt's bees lip balm in pomegranate it's only about £3.50 too.

Thanks ELR will have a look at it.

Any more for any more?

Bodyshop do a good one, I prefer it to the Benefit one actually

I have a bottle of this and it's a good substitute (at an even better price!).

Oh, just realised it's out of stock on that site. It's elsewhere online though, Amazon etc.

Crepe - i have the bottle one. It's the lip balm they've discontinued. But thanks.

I'll look for the Bodyshop one. Is it just in one colour like the benefit one? Loved that translucent red/pink.

Elizabeth Arden 8hr cream as a liptint available in pink or burgundy.

Sorry snot I got so excited thinking that I had the perfect product for you that I didn't read your OP properly blush

Crepe that's ok. I might try it when the liquid benetint runs out smile

I like the Korres tinted lip balm pots, Pomegranate and Mango are my two favourite shades. Actually find them a lot more hydrating and more pleasantly fragranced than the Benetint one, too (though I completely agree the Benetint colour is ace!)
