At first glance, The Body Shop's Lip & Cheek Stain ($14) reminded my of Benefit's Benetint ($29). The dupe sleuth in me wouldn't rest until I knew, so here I sit one stain (and a few bucks) richer.

Too see the full effect of applying it to both the lips and cheeks and get some application tips, you can check out the tutorial below where I use it to get a natural "no makeup" look.
Now, as it compares to Benefit's Benetint, I think it's an exact color dupe, but performs better! Benetint has more of a liquid consistency, where The Body Shop's stain is more gel-like. I find the gel provides a better medium for application and blending. Benetint's applicator is a little brush that is a little too small for the lips let alone the whole cheek area. Overall, I recommend The Body Shop's Lip & Cheek Stain for a great, natural looking product for the lips and cheeks as well as for a good way to save $15 on Benefit's Benetint.
