Callas is a a cosmetics brand sold developed in Japan and France, but made in Korea. I love Japanese and Korean Cosmetics (e.g I’m trying to get my hands on some Etude House), which tend to always be great quality. Callas makes some good products and the lip items are especially nice.
Callas Brilliant Stars Lip Gloss is a high shine, glimmery gloss that is low on stickiness, but still high on color. That is a good achievement, since usually to get good color some tackiness is expected as a matter of course. At around $12-15, the price isn’t too bad–not budget range, but not high end either.
Callas Moist Petal Lipstick is a good moisturizing lipstick. The color pay off is high and it feels lovely. this one also runs in the $12-15 range.
Callas Perfect ColorStay Lipstick (pictured above) was my favorite. This slimline lipstick has nice staying power without feeling dry. The packaging is attractive and it pairs well with the gloss. I had a few positive comments on it from friends who saw it. They had not heard of the brand before and liked the look of the tube. Callas ColorStay runs at around $15.
I linked to order pages from Amazon.com, simply because they are most likley to be in stock there, but I actually ordered mine from Yesstyle, which is an incredible Japanese and Korean fashion, beauty, and accessories site. It is a neat place for some unique items, and well worth looking at for non-beauty items. For example, they have some incredible handbags and shoes! You can also view Callas items at Callas.com.
