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.
