An exciting new makeup brand is launching called Kiss Cosmetics. Myself, along with a handful of other bloggers, have been working with them over the last year or so in the run up to their launch. I've been extremely lucky and I was sent one of their new releases to review, a lipstick (or KISStick as they're calling it) in Frisky Fuchsia - a gorgeous raspberry shade (there are 10 shades in the collection). Price-wise they're similar to brands like Max Factor with this lipstick coming in at £7.00, putting it firmly in the middle of the high street.
The packaging feels really nice quality - it's sturdy and doesn't feel cheap. At the base of the lipstick case there is a pot where you can see the shade (I like it when brands do this). The lipstick is really well pigmented as well as being soft and buttery with a lovely sheen. In the picture above I used my Karla Cosmetics lip brush to apply the lipstick and didn't need to layer it - this is how intense it was off the bat. It wore really well, didn't bleed or go patchy, it just faded over time. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you want lipstick to last on your lips, apply it with a lip brush, you get a nicer application and it'll last better.
I had no idea what to expect from KiSS cosmetics, how good their products would be, and yes, this is only one thing I've tried but I really have been impressed with this. It's good quality both the packaging and the product, it smelled nice and lasted well, and in my opinion has a good price point too. I can't wait to try more from the brand and can't wait to see what products they release.
The best part, in my opinion, other than the lovely quality of this product and the fair pricing is that ALL their products are cruelty free. You don't find many brands that are high-street priced that can say that. The brand launches on the week commencing 20th April - you'll be able to shop them online from then here.
