BENEFIT CALIFORNIA KISSIN' LIP SHINE

SMILE BRIGHTENING LIP SHINE  
$20.00 (Sephora, Ulta, Amazon)

 

 





THE CLAIMS:

Sexy shine meets West Coast cool in this delectable, smile-brightening lip shine. The aqua-blue sheen actually makes teeth appear whiter! Wear it alone or over your favorite lipstick for a look that's bright, fresh and oh so cool. It not only brightens your breath… it brightens your smile!

THE INSPECTION:

On a neutral lipstick
Benefit always has the cutest names and packaging for their products!  This is one of my favorite lip glosses.  It has a thin consistency and is not sticky.  Although it is blue, it does not look blue on your lips (unless you put too much).  It has an iridescent shimmer that is really pretty.  The blue color makes your teeth appear whiter.  Based on the color wheel theory, blue sits opposite yellow and they cancel each other out.  (But what if you don't have yellow teeth? Gross! .... It still makes my white teeth brighter).  It's an optical illusion that makes teeth appear brighter. It tastes and smells like

Over bright lipstick
mint.  I use it over lipstick or by itself.  It lasts a pretty long time but I do need to reapply now and then throughout the day/night. It is a little pricey!
