Now, I normally don’t bother with cute ‘foreplay’ type items or things like whipped cream and sprinkes or honey (Seriously, have you actually brought that stuff into your bed? It gets everywhere, and I have it on good authority from one of my friends that if you get honey in your hair, it takes no less than 3 washings to make the sticky clumps go away.). But, Kama Sutra has a reputation for making good stuff, and I love the taste of strawberries, so I thought I’d give this a try when TabuToys offered me a chance to review their Strawberry Honey Dust.
The Lust Dust came in a large tin that is 4 inches in diameter and 4.5 inches wide-about the size of one of those big cans of tomato sauce (sexy comparison, I know, but hey, it works!). The tin is elegant looking, and the main colour is a medium green with a gold overlay. While I’m not sure if the pattern is actually Indian, I could definitely see this as the pattern on a gorgeous sari. I think that you could leave the tin out in your bedroom without raising too many eyebrows. It actually fits in well with the colour scheme in my bedroom, so I have mine on my dresser.
The powder itself is very light. It makes me think of powdered (icing/confectioners) sugar, or maybe flour that’s be well sifted. It’s soft, fluffy, and isn’t clumpy at all. The Strawberries and Champagne powder has been tinted a soft pink, more like a pastel baby’s blanket colour than Pepto Bismal.
The powder itself is made from a cornstarch base with the addition of glucose, honey, flavor, silica,saccharin and colors/dyes. You’ll want to avoid getting this near your/your partner’s pussy, as the sugars in it can (and probably will) cause a yeast infection. It’s gluten and paraben free, so if you or your partner have allergies to them, this dust won’t give you a bad reaction!
Other than that? It performs just like any corn starch powder. It applies easily and doesn’t make you feel like a powdered doughnut unless you manage to put way too much on. A light dusting leaves you feeling silky smooth, keeps you dry, smells lightly of strawberries and is absolutely lick-able and kissable. There is a slight chalky taste and feel, but it only happens if you absolutely douse yourself or your partner with this.
The taste…really isn’t that bad. I almost expected it to be a sickly sweet ‘candy’ type flavour, but no. It’s definitely sweet and strawberry, but I didn’t find that it was horribly artificial or overly sweet (especially in the small amounts you’ll be using!).
The feather duster included with the kit is nice, but I’m a bit iffy about feathers. I would have liked to have known how they were sourced, and how Kama Sutra cleaned them before they made them into a duster. My cat, on the other hand, has no such qualms, and has stolen it as her new favourite toy ever. I bought a large poofy blush brush from my local drug store for a few dollars, and use that instead for application. It works just as well, probably even better. I found dipping the brush into the powder, then tapping some of the excess dust off before applying it to skin worked best so I didn’t end up with too much.
Ingredient list: Corn Starch Modified, Glucose, Zea Mays (corn) Starch, Honey, Flavour, Silica, Sodium Saccharine, Sodium Benzoate, Red 33, Red 40
Overall, this is an excellent kit for a bit of tasty foreplay! I give it 4 strawberry scented paws up out of 5!
