Kismet Cosmetics - Velvet Collection Semi Matte Lipsticks (Black Friday Discount!)

Kismet Cosmetics: Velvet Collection Semi Matte Lipsticks
*Self Purchased*

A few weeks ago I introduced you to Kismet Cosmetics with a review of their amazing Opulent Bronzing Lotion. If you're looking for a healthy and temporary glow you should check out my review!  Recently Kismet launched the My Kismet Color program where the owner of Kismet, who just so happens to be a certified make up artist, will choose the right lip color for you after reviewing a photo you upload! How easy and convenient is that?!

So I don't know about you but I always gravitate to the same colors for lipstick, lip gloss, you name it. I'm sorry to say I don't generally trust many of the folks at the mall make up counters who suggest colors for me either... But after having a great experience with the Opulent Body Bronzing Lotion and seeing how beautiful the colors looked online I gave it a go!

Specialized picks for me were: Desert Rose, Vivianna (for a bold lip), Moment would be my perfect red and Hey Baby, a perfect natural! You can view all of these exciting colors on Kismet Cosmetic's website here.

I decided to choose two of the lipsticks to start with, Desert Rose and Hey Baby.  A few quick, but important items about these boutique lipsticks - they are gluten free, paraben free, talc free and lanolin free! This is especially important for those with allergies and sensitive skin. I also love that these are made in the USA!


Kismet Cosmetics calls Desert Rose a mauve-marsala. The color of the year blended with a neutral tone to create the perfect everyday shade.

I chose this shade because it looked like a somewhat 'vampy' fall shade and it wasn't something that I would generally choose for myself. Usually I have either a neutral lip or a very bold fuchsia or pink lip going.  I'm so glad I tried this though because its perfect for this time of year and while being bold is still easy to wear daily.


A marvelous mauve that is perfect for everyday wear. Developed with the LSU Golden Girls, get ready to see Hey Baby during the halftime show!

The formula with both of these lipsticks is creamy and light, its not sticky and it did not dry out my lips. Each is color packed and I found that my color lasted and lasted and lasted. Overall I give them both my seal of approval and I'm still entitced to try more! Find your color at
