I have a confession to make, just one week ago I was a false nail and lash virgin. Yeap. There, I’ve said it. However, along came a little invite in my inbox to change all of that and open my eyes to a world of beautiful possibilities!
Last Thursday I was invited along to the #JessWrightXKISS event, to discover the fantastic products by KISS and to mingle with their lovely new ambassador Jess Wright (of TOWIE fame!). The setting for the event was the very stylish Soho Hotel, in a room that had been converted into a fabulous beauty station. Drinks were flowing and cute canapés were a plenty – I have no idea what the canapé I ate was, but it was lovely! Ha!
A short while later and the beautiful Jess Wright emerged from an adjoining room looking absolutely gorgeous! She gave a short speech welcoming everyone and saying how grateful she is to be a part of such a fantastic company – she also gave her recommendations too. Then it was time to have a little fun!
First up was the lash table, a place to discover the range available – from subtle lashes through to full on drama (including ones with fluttery multiple layers), there’s a lash for everyone! As I was a lash virgin, I opted for a pair (called Sultry – fab name!) that was a little more on the subtle side to ease me into the lash world. I was greeted by the lovely Danny Defreitas, an amazing hair stylist and makeup artist – who was more than happy to take my fake lash virginity, haha! Thanks Danny!
So here I am, straight after application – loving my subtle lash change to give my eyes a little more of a flirty (or should I say “Sultry”!) look.
Eyes done, it was time to check out those nails! Again, I’ve had my nails “done” before in terms of painted, but I’d never had artificial nails applied – I was so intrigued! There was a plethora of styles to choose from, ranging from the classic French manicure look through to some super fab glitzy ones.
I went for this Impress nails set, which is matte navy blue with a stunning accent nail of gold glitter – which is addictive to stare at! Don’t say I didn’t warn you! I was so impressed with how quickly the nails can be applied and once they’re applied, that’s it! Your nails are looking damn awesome and there’s no way you can smudge anything – perfect if you’re impatient like me when it comes to waiting for paint to dry. I am such a convert to this collection, they’re so clever, look stunning and they’re effortless to use. I think the glittery styles would be even more perfect for the upcoming party season!
Let’s delve in to the collection a little more… doesn’t it all look amazing!?
When it was sadly time to leave, we were each given a goodie bag filled with all the lashes and nails we could ever dream of, which is so generous of KISS – I can’t wait to get stuck into trying them all out. Seeing as I received so many fab products, I thought it was only fair that I run a little giveaway so that you guys could grab a slice of the action…
So here is my competition where you could win a fabulous set of red Impress nails and a set of classy nude French nails, alongside a set of 100% natural hair eyelashes to make you all fluttery and beautiful!
