Kiss New York Pro: Egoism Lipsticks

Press Sample

Greetings, dear readers, and happy hump day! It's back to business as usual around here now that my family vacation is over, although when it comes to traveling with young kids, I have to admit I feel like I could use a vacation from my vacation! Ha! At least I was able to get a little time to myself for a deep tissue massage to get some of the knots out of my back, and I did enjoy sharing some fun adventures with my boys. Now if only I can keep my rambling to a minimum and actually get to today's blog post....

For this evening's blog post, I have three shades from the Kiss New York Pro EGOISM Matte Velvet Lipstick line to share with you. Kiss New York Pro is a brand that I first stumbled upon a little over a year ago while attending the International Salon and Spa Expo in Long Beach. The brand has released several nice products at an affordable price, and I certainly am eager to pick up and try a few other things that will be launching soon. Let's get a closer look at the three lipstick shades in today's post!

All three lipsticks have a matte finish and richly pigmented.

#Kiss is the darkest shade in this evening's post. The colour is rich and deep and overall, applies easily to the lips. It is a little tricky to get a fully even application of colour, especially if your lips aren't as smooth as possible, as I have shown here. My series of illnesses the past month and a half have really done a number on my lips, and while they are in better shape than they were, they ideally need a little more TLC for me to optimally wear this particular shade. That being said, I LOVE this colour and look forward to wearing it again!


When I first saw Doppio, I wasn't sure it was really the colour for me. Was I wrong about that! Doppio is such a pretty nude pink shade, and I have found myself grabbing for it quite a few times. The application is a touch uneven with my lips in less than stellar condition, but it is more forgiving than #Kiss as shown above.

Coco Ravish

Coco Ravish was the shade I was most excited about between these three, and I have such mixed feelings about it. The formula is fantastic and the colour is stunning, BUT the lipstick itself has such lovely flashes of blue shimmer that just don't translate to the lips. There is a hint of blue if I look really closely, but I was hoping to see more of it after application. While this aspect is admittedly disappointing, Coco Ravish is undoubtedly a beautiful shade are still arguably my favorite shade of these three in today's post.

At the time of this post, the EGOISM Matte Velvet Lipsticks are out of stock and not available for purchase. I'll add the social media links to Kiss New York Pro so you can be alerted when they are back in stock. Until then, there are other fun products to check out from the brand.

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful evening!
