I was sent out a PR package of different bits and pieces from the new Kiss New York Professional range to try out. As I am on a lipstick roll lately I thought I would continue the trend!
Kiss New York Professional Egoism Matte Velvet Lipstick
First up I am going to talk about the Kiss New York Professional Egoism Matte Velvet Lipsticks (€7.49). I was sent out two different colours to try out; London Fog and Eternal Sunshine. London Fog is a very pretty pinky nude perfect for day wear while Eternal Sunshine is a gorgeous orange and will be beautiful for the summer when we have a golden sheen 😉
The lipstick shape for all the world is like a rounded off triangle. I was unsure if it would be easy to apply direct but I am happy to say they glided on with ease. The rounded tip actually helped me with application which is needed as I am awful for remembering a lip liner a lot of the times!
They are quite velvety when applied and they do not leave the lips too dry. The lasting power is not amazing as they do not set fully matte. This does not bother me as I prefer to reapply then feel like my lips are being sucked dry if I am honest! I wanted to mention it in the event it would be a pet peeve for you!
Both colours I actual love and I am surprised. I am not going to lie, when I saw eternal sunshine I thought ah no thanks! I do not have super gorgeous plump lips and I feel that if I am going to do a bold lip; darker is the way to go and not brighter! However, I actually think I could pull it off if I lost the ghostly pallor 😉
Kiss New York Professional Moisture Tattoo Lip Stain
Again I was sent out two different colours; Lost Cherry and Pink Mango. Now if you have followed me a while you know I love a good lip stain and these are just gorgeous! They remind me of a gloss when your first apply them minus the really annoying hair stuck to your lips stickiness. These have some fierce staying power, I mean I had to scrub my lips to remove Cherry Red so that I could take a picture of Pink Mango.
Both colours suit my skin tone and I often alternate between the two; more so now that I am back to work. I always find lip stains are the best for work, especially if you do not have the time to check for unsightly lips lol.

Overall, I am impressed with the Kiss New York Professional Makeup Range. At the moment they are only available in select pharmacies, however I hope that changes as I need to get my hands on some more from the range. You can checkout the stockists on their official Facebook page HERE
Until next time
