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.


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, 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. 😀

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

    I can’t help but like any colour you review as your nails are just so wonderful and perfect looking it is hard to think too badly of the colour!

  6. I’ve ummed and arred over this shade for so long now, and at the moment I am at “arr” but I don’t know if that is good or not. It looks very nice on you though.
