I was looking for another alternative to my all time favorite stain Benetint and thought Lollitint might fit the bill. Unfortunately, it is much different that Benetint. Formula is thicker, doesn't stain nearly as well (I resorted to using a primer just to make sure the color stayed). It also turns a different color when applied-I wonder if I got a bum bottle or somethign because it looks pink on the wand, but when I apply it to my skin, it turns a weird blue-ish/grey/plum hue. Weird. I'll use up the remainder of the bottle, but wish it was just as good as Benetint.
