China Glaze On Safari Collection: Kalahari Kiss NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 5 - 2012

Today’s NOTD features a new shade from the China Glaze On Safari collection, it’s an unusual one for me to pick out to wear… warm-toned nudes are not my cup of tea, even though this one does actually look quite like a cup of tea.

Look.

Or as my ma would call it, “gnats piss”.

Ok, it’s not really very tea-like after all is it?  I got carried away with that one.  Still, it’s a pretty edgy choice for my tastes and I kinda like it.

The formula was good, better than CG’s summer offerings which were all-at-once watery and thick – this one applies smoothly with a good amount of pigmentation that provided full opacity in just two coats.

China Glaze Kalahari Kiss is available to buy instore at Sallys and online at BeautyBay.com, priced at £6.95

What do you make of the shade?  Would you wear it?

    Reminds me of Caramac bars. Mmmm. Caramac. I quite like it but it would look a bit odd on me, since I’m more or less yellow myself ahaha :)

    Hahaha. I read the first sentence and thought ‘Tea? TEA?! More like gnat’s piss!’.

    Then I read the next sentence. Your mum is cool. :-D

    Lily is right, it looks like the color of Caramac bars!
