Benefit California Kissin' Lipgloss





Benefit California Kissin' Smile Brightening Lipgloss £14.00

I have been dying to try out this lipgloss as I am obsessed by anything that promises to make your smile brighter. As a huge fan of Benefit makeup, I was eager to test out California Kissin' as it's described to be a minty fresh gloss with a hint of blue, which you apply over or under lipstick and the colour makes your teeth look whiter. On its own, the lipgloss has no colour and made my lips looks quite pale but not in an attractive way, so it's not something you can carry in your bag as an instant colour - you need to have a lipstick with it. I then tried it with a bright pink lipstain underneath the gloss and voila! I could see the blue tint on my lips, and I'm not sure it made my teeth look any whiter but my completion was definitely brightened, eyes emphasized and skin softened. It hasn't been my miracle "whitener" but I do like the lipgloss for the colour it turns pinks into and the minty fresh scent :)

  2. I'm a huge fan of Benefits but this product has definitely escaped my radar. Sounds cool though and looks great on you! Sad it didn't have the whitening effect you were after though. Have you found that the minty-ness of it made your lips fuller? Lip plumpers tend to have mint into them if I'm not mistaken.

    1. Thank you! :) Surprisingly not really plumping, it makes lips look fuller when applied on generously, but that's because of the thickness of the gloss.

  4. I've had my eye on California Kissin' for a while, so thank you for the review! I'm not yet a lipstick girl (I haven't even tried it) but lipstain is definitely my thing. It looks great on you. :)

    1. Thank you :) Lipstain is probably better to use with this lipgloss, as you only need a hint of colour to bring out the blue in the gloss! Glad you liked the review!
