Does anyone have a good recipe for a lip stain?

I've heard of using a little food coloring, cake decorating pigments, or cool-aid (tastes good too!) in a petroleum jelly base, but I'm a little afraid to try it myself. I'd like to make a stain that's smooth (not sticky like a balm), but still conditioning...any Tips?

Beet juice and vegetable glycerin can make a really great lip and cheek stain. Plus its all natural. I don;t have the recipe on hand, but I think it you juice a beet and just add the glycerin until you get to a good consistency you will be fine. The only catch is it must be made fresh before too long. (the trials of natural skincare LOL)

Thanks! I tried cool aid (just strait for color, cause I haven't decided what to put it in yet). And it worked great. Red 40 (food dye) is a good light red color that you don't see in most makeup! I used black cherry so it had a little ble thrown in and look pretty darn solid.
