Greetings, dear readers! For today's blog post, I wanted to share with you some of the products I picked up at the International Salon and Spa Expo from Kiss New York Pro.
Kiss New York Pro is a new to me brand, and I picked out a variety of items to test.
Fennec - Spell - Spicy
While I usually grab for palettes, I just couldn't resist picking up these single eyeshadows! These colours are beautiful, and I was really impressed with the quality of these. Richly pigmented and incredibly smooth, I am loving these, and the low price point is an added bonus!
These eyeshadows blend so beautifully! Only a little on my eye brushes went a long way to create this look, and I am happy to report I didn't have trouble with fallout either. Kiss New York Pro eyeshadows are definitely on my radar, and I will most certainly be picking up more! I'm hoping to see the same great quality in other shades!
In addition to the eyeshadows, I also the Top Brow Brow Highlighter Pencil Duo. On one side is a thick highlighting pencil and the other is a thinner pencil in the shade brunette. The highlighting end applies very easily and has a velvety texture. With just the softest pressure, this pencil imparted colour just below my eyebrows around the inner arch, and it gently blended with a touch of my finger for a softer look. The brow pencil side, on the other hand, requires a firmer hand to apply. It still applies quite easily, but it doesn't have quite the same soft and velvety texture. Instead, it stays firmly in place, a feature I know I want from my brow products! I used it to outline and fill in some thinner areas of my brows. The final look is darker but still fairly natural, a look that I prefer from my eyebrows.
To complete my look, I added Kiss New York Pro Egoism Matte Velvet Lipstick in New York City. The teardrop shaped lipstick bullet applies to the lips with a little pressure. While it isn't an issue by any means, this lipstick is a little firmer than I personally prefer. This isn't to say I won't use it again, but I may be less inclined to grab for this lipstick over other reds with a softer formula.
The final look is smooth and even, and while it does come off while eating and drinking, I was pretty impressed with its overall staying power. I only needed to add a few little touchups to keep this beautiful red shade on my lips throughout the day.
Here is my final look for the day. It's been a while since I've sported a red lip, and now that I'm wearing it, I have no idea why I've not been wearing red more lately! As for Kiss New York Pro, I'm really happy I have discovered the brand! The products I have tried thus far apply nicely and are richly pigmented. I also can appreciate the affordability of these products! I look forward to seeing where the brand goes from here and hope to test out a few more items in the near future!
