Makeup Review: Benefit California Kissin'

Makeup Review: Benefit California Kissin'

About a month ago, I wrote a series on blue lip glosses that many of you seemed quite curious to try. So now that Benefit California Kissin' Smile Brightening Lip Shine ($16) has launched, I decided to give it a whirl.

I was really surprised by how impressed I was with my new blue hue! I thought that blue lip gloss was going to be wacky and weird, but it turns out that the tint actually cools down your skin tone. In addition, it tastes good and smells great. (I wish it were true that it made my breath fresher, but to do that, I'd probably have to eat it. )

I can't really tell if it made my teeth look whiter or not, but it does have lots of shine, and the gloss gave my lips a subtle blue sparkle. Also, the packaging has these great aqua waves that just scream Summer. What can I say? I'm addicted to the blues.

blue lip gloss in general is wonderful. i've had a lancome juicy tube in a sparkly blue shade for awhile, and it's quite nice. i'm totally a sucker for blue lip gloss - i'll give this one a try too.

i was wondering if anyone had tried this yet- i might have to give it a shot! it is expensive for lippie but i love benefit and most of their products are a hit, so i might have to shell out for it!

along the same lines, i have the lime green tendertones from mac. i first thought it was ridiculous, but i tried it any way and it's my favorite. it really does tone down the pink in my face (and lips) and adds a great shimmer. i think of it as my new favorite neutral!

Wow, first I've heard of the blue lip hues. But $16... ouch. I'm still pissed at Benefit for purchasing the Dr FeelGood stuff... I hate how it feel on my face!

I had heard that the blue makes your teeth whiter. You can wear you fav lipstick and add the blue gloss on top!
