Limited Edition KISStick

Today’s review is one I am excited to share with you, being of a newly released and limited edition lipstick I was able to snag ahead of the release date on the 20th May!

Let’s begin with a little background information about KISS Cosmetics before we get onto the lipstick itself. KISS is a new brand for 2015 but, during its development, was already fully establishing itself in the blogging world, drawing on feedback from a variety of beauty bloggers whilst in the process of designing its packaging and products. The pricing of their products is of a typical high street price, and all are comprised of cruelty free ingredients –  no animal testing here!

Osculate Orchid KISStick Review

Although 10 shades of ‘KISSstick’ are already for sale on their website, but ‘Osculate Orchid’ will be available as a limited edition shade on the 20th of May. As a purple shade with fuchsia undertones, it is a very daring colour, even for a lover of bold lipstick such as I! However, despite the idea of a purple lipstick being rather daunting, KISS describes it as a “fail safe” for captivating lips and has designed it to suit all skin undertones, meaning there’s no fear of looking like an alien, no matter your skintone. Although I cannot speak to the validity of this claim, I have certainly found it to suit my own skin tone perfectly (which, for the record, is a deathly pale one and thus difficult to cater to). I certainly think such an unusual shade is a must-have for anyone’s collection, and such a bright fuchsia shade is the perfect way to rock a bold lip in the Summer months.

In terms of pricing, this lipstick is fairly standard for an every-day high street lipstick, retailing at £7; not an incredible bargain but certainly nothing that shall break the bank. However, in terms of value for money, it is certainly a must have, being a well pigmented lipstick with a beautiful satin finish. The lasting power was also impressive as it did not bleed, and even stained my lips slightly, meaning it stayed put throughout the day with minimal touch-ups. The picture below really doesn't do the colour payoff justice! In person, it's slightly bright and with much more of a fuchsia hue.
