NEW BRAND ALERT: Kiss Cosmetics





A brand new cosmetics brand is launcing today called Kiss Cosmetics. I've been excitedly watching and helping their brand unfold in their secret Facebook group along with some other bloggers for the past few months and I'm happy to share with you a couple of their new products. The very lovely people behind the brand were kind enough to send me a Locked Lips* Lip Top Coat and a mini version of their Kiss Stick in the shade Birthday Suit*. 

Firstly, the Locked Lips Top Coat* is a relatively new idea to me, and I've certainly never tried a product of it's kind on my lips. It's a clear lip sealant and the idea is to apply your favourite lipstick and then apply the top coat directly over the top and allow it to dry and it will make your lipstick last all day, even through eating and drinking.  I'll have to be honest here and say I'm really not sold on this idea. I dunno if it's because my lips are naturally really dry, but I found that this just made the lipstick look really dry and flaky and I thought it felt really strange when first applied. I also didn't like the feeling of painting onto my lips with a nail polish-style brush. Just freaked me out in all honesty. It's certainly something I won't be using again, but maybe it will work on people whose lips aren't quite as dry.

Locked Lips* will retail at £3.50 and will be available to purchase on 29th April 2015.

Onto the Mini KisStick in the shade Birthday Suit*, well this is a different story. I absolutely ADORE this lipstick and it's already gained a firm place in my everyday makeup bag. It's a kind of peachy-toned nude that I'm sure would suit just about any skin tone. I'm picky with my nudes and I don't think I've got another one like this in my collection. The formula is an absolute dream for my dry lips - it's so creamy and applies so nicely and doesn't stick to any dry patches. The lasting power isn't great, but I find that with all moisturising lipsticks and I don't care about that because it's so easy to reapply. I'm certainly gonna be ordering a couple of these in other shades as well as this one as I'm sure the mini won't last me very long.

There are 10 shades available in the KissStick range and they retail at £7 which puts them right in the middle of the highstreet price range. They launch TODAY over on the Kiss Cosmetics website.

If you want to have a look at some other shades available in the range, some of my beautiful fellow bloggers have reviewed them over on their blogs:

Frisky Fuchsia - Makeup-Pixi3
Toxic Kiss - Floral Etiquette
Seductive Damson - Beky Lou

  1. I completely agree with you about the lip sealant, I tried Lipcote which is the same kind of product, and I found it very strange applying with a nail varnish brush too. I only tried it once and haven't touched it since! The lipstick looks gorgeous though, I absolutely love that shade! x

  2. This sounds like an interesting brand, I might try some. I don`t get the idea of a lip coat, I find it a bit useless, but for some it may be appealing.

  3. The lipstick shade you got looks gorgeous and I'd be the same as you on the Topcoat, it would feel very strange to apply something like it on my lips and not to mention that I also have dry lips all the time x

  6. It would be great if a lip sealant could be produced in a more user friendly (or user-used to!) way, but the lipstick itself looks gorgeous. I'll have a look at the website now and see if I fancy anything from them myself!
