Products I regret buying - Kiss New York Maxi Shine Lipsticks

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post in my "Products I Regret Buying" series.  In this post, I learned that sometimes lower price does mean lower quality, at least in this instance.

Today I'll be focusing on Kiss New York Lipsticks.  I saw someone on YouTube review them and really love them. Then I ran across them at the beauty supply store for $2 per tube. I thought, hey what not, it's a steal! Unfortunately I think they're inexpensive because they're not very good.


My main problem was that the colors just looked weird on my lips. The magenta looked too blue and then the nude looks too gray. Usually I'd just solve this problem by adding a lip liner and gloss. However, the lipstick itself doesn't even like to stick to the lips. It's smear city! The only way I got it to stay was to apply, blot, reapply, set with powder and blot. That is way too much work when I can pick up another drugstore lipstick and have no problems with application.


PROS
-very inexpensive
-available at your local beauty supply store
-pretty colors
-can see lipstick color through the clear compartment on the tube

CONS
-smears really easily
-covers uneasily
-does not last long
-colors are a little off on the lips

Would I Recommend?  Not really...you can find $1 ELF lip products or NYX Lipsticks for similar pricing but they're way better.

FTC Disclosure:  Post not sponsored.  I bought these products with my own money.
