How does each toothpaste feel in your mouth?

 

The charcoal peppermint is smooth; Butter Me Up Organics powder feels like dust; the Matcha Mint  is like foam.


What’s the nastiest toothpaste flavor you can imagine?

 

Garlic.


Which of these products would you buy without testing just based on its packaging?


Butter Me Up Organics powder.


Give each product a sassy name based on its color and texture.


I’d call the charcoal peppermint ‘I’m Married’; Butter Me Up Organics powder would be ‘I’m Grandma’; and Matcha Mint, ‘I Forgot My Name.’


What was the best part about these products?


They're all non-Fluoride and there is no unnecessary bubble with detergent.


What would you change about them?


My favorite is the powder one [by Butter Me Up Organics]—it had the most simple ingredients and I felt smoothest after.  But I’m not fan of cinnamon for toothpaste.

 

 

Mark Jen Hsu & Tina Outen

 

Mark Jen Hsu has styled campaigns for Kenzo, and worked with almost every major mag, and Tina Outen is a fashion industry OG who, just this Fashion Month, styled hair at Unravel, Koché, Philipp Plein, Luar, Markus Lupfer, Natasha Zinko, Bora Aksu and Charlotte Knowles and more.

 

How does each toothpaste feel in your mouth?


Mark Jen Hsu: The charcoal peppermint product feels very normal and minty—like a normal toothpaste. The Butter Me Up Organics powder is thick, chunky and powdery at first, but dissolves nicely after a few brushes. The Matcha Mint feels earthy and thick, and the taste is very ‘organic.’


Tina Outen: I could only do the charcoal. I’m a bit phobic of jelly textures and the Matcha Mint was a bit like eating a jellied eel, and the powder was so dry it made me gag.

 

What’s the nastiest toothpaste flavor you can imagine?
 

Mark Jen Hsu: Poop flavored toothpaste.


Tina Outen: Beef.

 

Which of these products would you buy without testing just based on its packaging?
 

Mark Jen Hsu: I liked the Butter Me Up Organics powder package—it looks cute and like there's scientific research behind the product, which I love.


Tina Outen: I’m all about dentist recommended toothpastes. I've spent a small fortune on my teeth so whatever the doc recommends to look after all his hard work is for me.


Which flavor is good enough to eat?


Mark Jen Hsu: The charcoal peppermint toothpaste in a tube is delish.


Tina Outen: Cinnamon, because it's Christmas—well, nearly.


Give each product a sassy name based on its color and texture.


Mark Jen Hsu: I’d call the charcoal peppermint ‘Nightful Glisten,’ the Butter Me Up Organics powder ‘Dark Snowfall’ and the Matcha Mint ‘Namaste Crunch.’


Tina Outen: The charcoal peppermint would be ‘Halloween Heaven’—you’re definitely goingn to give your boyfriend a scare when he see this on your gnashers. The Matcha mint is ‘Jellied Eels’! Not for breakfast, thank you. Butter Me Up Organics powder would be ‘Your Hangover’s Hangover’—dry mouth never got dryer before this brushing experience.


What was the best part about the products?

 

Mark Jen Hsu: Fresh breath for every encounter.


Tina Outen: I didn't like any of them—I will stick to my Sensodyne. Brushing my teeth is one of my favorite feel-good morning routines followed by my hot shower. But none of them had that feel-good factor for me—it was more an ‘Ewww what's going on?’ kind of vibe!

 

What would you change about them?

 

Mark Jen Hsu: The Butter Me Up Organics toothpaste could have more of a distinct flavor, and the packaging is a bit overwhelming.


Tina Outen: Everything.

 

 

Kyra Cherie

 

Kyra Cheria is a singer/model/dancer/actress and all around cool girl, who you've likely seen on the runway for brands like Gypsy Sport and Hardeman, or posing on Instagram as her alter ego, @tacobell_DSL.

 

How does each toothpaste feel in your mouth?

 

The charcoal peppermint is medium thick, with light flavor, and is easiest to brush with out of the three products; Butter Me Up Organics powder is grainy, unconventional and earthy; Matcha mint is slippery, sliding, light and fresh.

 

What’s the nastiest toothpaste flavor you can imagine?

 

Throw up flavored.

 

Which of these products would you buy without testing just based on its packaging?

 

I think the charcoal peppermint toothpaste has the coolest, cleanest aesthetic to it. If I saw it in the store, I’d gravitate towards it over the other two.

 

Which flavor is good enough to eat?

 

The Matcha Mint!

 

Give each product a sassy name based on its color and texture.

 

The Matcha Mint is ‘Slutty Karen,’ Butter Me Up Organics powder would be ‘Sage,’ and the charcoal peppermint is ‘Electra.’

 

What was the best part about the products?

 

You can never have too much toothpaste! Trying new toothpastes is an interesting and fun way to experiment and get results or find out what you like. I also loved that these products were all natural and organic!
