Welcome to my world of makeup, sweet scents and real talk. You should always have a cuppa to hand and sit back and enjoy a little snippet of my world! A beauty and lifestyle blog for all, but as I like to say it's also 'brown girl friendly'. As a brown beauty myself I ensure that all product reviews that are complexion based really show what works on a deeper skin tone as well as showing what's being catered for brown beauties!

KISS COSMETICS | Mini Kissticks Review

Hi loves!

Recently the new makeup brand Kiss Cosmetics released a new line in their lipstick range KISSTICK. You can now purchase their full size lipsticks in mini sizes - Mini Kissticks*.

I personally think this is a great idea! Each mini lipstick has 1gram of product, which is a decent size for a mini lipstick product. I would say they appear more like a deluxe sample size.

The lipstick I received from KISS Cosmetics was the shade 'Frisky Fuchsia' is described as 'a delicious raspberry, not too cool so as to suit most skin tones'- perfect for summer and great on deeper skin tones! It is quite a moisturising formula which is quite glossy. The glossy finish does not last, but the colour does leave a stain on your lips. As it is glossy it does transfer (like most lipstick products). I would say that you would definitely need a lip liner (see lip swatch below) with this shade as it is very creamy and pigmented. However, because of the formula being so opaque, this mini size will last you quite a long time!

The packaging of the lipstick at first reminds me of a lip balm packaging, which although may not be the prettiest, it's great for travelling with and throwing into your handbag. When closing the lipstick, be aware that the lipstick does not go all the way down so you'll need to be careful when placing the lid back on otherwise you may scrape some of the lipstick.

In terms of any scents - the lipstick has a plastic sweet scent which is not overpowering and doesn't transfer to your lips. The lipstick bullet is shaped as a traditional bullet with a pointed tip which makes it easy to apply. However, as it is a mini size the bullet is quite thin (but I didn't find it difficult to apply onto my fuller lips).

The mini sticks come in 10 shades ranging from nudes to purple. They retail for £2 each and you can purchase your mini lipstick from the KISS Cosmetics website.
