Love that it's: “blue, glossy, perfect”

This is THE best lip gloss ever! Not only does it feel good on your lips, but it smells good. iI totally illuminates your smile. It's not gloppy and won't make your lips stick together like crazy glue. Simply the BEST!

smells amazing

I've used this product for years. It smells great and is not sticky. It makes my teeth look slightly whiter.

Perfect for everyday use

I got this as a gift from my sister and I was a bit hesitant of using it since I was never really a fan of minty lip glosses but I'm glad I tried it because it gives enough shine that's perfect for every day use. The bluish tint also gives the illusion of having whiter teeth. I'm surely going to get another tube once I run out!

Love that it's: “minty, Fresh, shiny, wearable”

Got this with a mini set last year and I fell in love! It is so fresh and wearable, whitens my teeth perfectly and leaves that little glimmer and a bit of glam. I've gotten so many compliments that as soon as my mini ran out, I ran to get a new one! Love love love.

Doesn't make my teeth look whiter.

luckylu
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

I dont have very discolored teeth, but I have noticed that cool shades of lipsticks do make my teeth look whiter and brighter so when I saw this, I was excited to try it. It has a nice feel, not overly sticky,and just a hint of mint makes it nice on a hot summer day, but the real reason I bought it was for a gloss that would make my teeth look whiter without having to wear a full coverage lipstick. I love almost everything from Benefit, so it saddens me that this product didn't live up to my expectations.

It's fine for what it is, I guess

Love that it's: “very shiny, glossy, minty”

I got a full size version for free with something last year, and, as a lip gloss, it's ok. It's glossy, and it looks ok so long as it's over a darker colour. If you wear it on bare lips, I find that it leaves a noticeably blue tint. Perhaps, if you have darker lips than me, the blue tinge is not as noticeable. Additionally, while it does have a minty tingle, by no means would I ever rely on this to genuinely freshen your breath; at best, you get a little flavour of mint on your tongue should it get on it. Overall, I enjoy the shine it gives when paired with something, and the mint flavour is kind of neat, but I would never purchase this item on my own. It's far too pricey for what it is, and, if you're bent on a minty gloss, there are others out there for 1/4-1/3 the price of this one, plus they aren't BLUE on your lips.

Tingly and Minty

Sophiesue88
Location: Yorkshire
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “tingly, minty, Fresh”

I did not believe that a lip gloss could make your teeth look whiter but it does make them look a little whiter. I really like the smell. I really like the tingle on my lips. My favourite thing is the moisture. I think all benefit lip glosses are really moisturising and I will buy this again.

Brinley1999

Love that it's: “minty, sparkle”

I really like taste of the lipgloss, the texture and most of all the sparkle! But if you put to much on it kind of makes your lips turn blue.

Blue lip gloss? Really? YES!!!

I never would have thought that this was the secret to a super bright smile. Whoever in Product Development came up with this product should be promoted to VP of Awesomeness.

Best lip gloss in the world!!!

cutiepie100
Location: Connecticut, USA

Skin tone: Light

This lip gloss is like my everyday goto girl. I always have it with me and it helps me look my best in every occasion. It has a nice tinted blue color when you squeeze it out of the tube but turns clear on your lips so don't worry, you won't look like a smurf wearing this refreshing lip gloss. The tinted blue also makes your teeth look whiter so it makes your smile even more beautiful. The minty smell is so refreshing and makes your breath smell minty and fresh as well as your lips so always make sure you have this on when you smooch the guy of your dreams.

minty fresh

jenjen

i like this product but don't feel it's worth the cost. i'm a babe on a budget so i like my money to go far. it's minty fresh and gives a good tingle to your lips, but i have to apply a thin coat otherwise it's almost too blue and makes your lips look funny. i would buy this again if money weren't an issue.

I like the minty flavor of this gloss and it does brighten my smile a little. That said I'm not a fan of the blue glitter, which looks like a teenybopper gloss in the sun. I'd say it's expensive for what you get. Nnot one of those benefit products that makes me go wow.

Not really necessary

Robs
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

I got one California Kissin' with my Justine Case kit. I'm not a huge fan of lipgloss but I decided to give it a try. The blue doesn't appear at all though you need some color under it, otherwise you end up with shiny lips... and that's all. I can't tell my teeth got brighter or whiter, and it doesn't last long - actually, if you're wearing lipstick under it, it also makes the color vanish faster.

Freshly Fantastic!

Kashefska
Location: Denver
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

I love the minty smell (and taste..). I also like that it is kind of thick. The blue sheen it gives does not make your lips look blue at all, and actually does give the illusion your teeth are whiter. I wish it lasted longer on my lips though.

Shimmer and Shine

Love that it's: “great feel taste and look”

I love the look of this lip gloss! I always loved a minty flavor to my lip gloss and bought another brand before I found this one and need-less-to-say, this one has me hooked. The blue tint is not bad at all as it lightens up and gives lips a healthy glow. I was afraid that it was going to make my lips look dead, but as you can see it was not the case at all.

Summer lips in a tube!

Audsurfs
Location: Monterey, Ca

Love that it's: “minty”

I love this product! It is a light tint of blue to make your teeth look white. It tastes good and the sparkle is fun. This is a super casual lip gloss and is Ca lips in a tube. The minty also seemed to help plump my lips a little.

Instant Glamour in a Tube!

Kimmy
Benefit Employee

I have been using California Kissin' for 8 years now. For a quick hint of sexiness, California Kissin' leaves a hint of sparkle and shine on my lips, creating a pout to die for. Use it over lipstick to take it up a notch, or use it as a lip balm to feel pretty at the gym.

good when used with other products

beneholic
Location: Undisclosed
Eyes: Brown

I'm not a big fan of lip glosses nor mint, so I was kind of hesistant to try california kissin'. But it said it would make my teeth appear whiter so I decided to give it a try. I've been using this for a while, and I'm not sure if it actually makes my teeth look whiter. But it is pretty when used with other products (california kissin' + posietint = great combination!) and not that sticky.

Mm mm, such a cute colour and minty. Love the package too. Just a tiny bit over lipstick and you're good to go. Too much and your lips look blue and cold, so be careful. Could eat this stuff, its that good.
