Beauty Crush: Kiss New York’s New Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquer + Swatches

BY: Beauty & the Beat Blog ON: March 20, 2014 IN: Affordable Beauty, Beat, Beauty, Beauty Beat, Beauty Launch, Beauty Trends


It’s the first day of Spring, and of course I’ve been bitten by the beauty love bug… again! My latest beauty crush is courtesy of Kiss New York! A couple of weeks ago, I got my hands on the new Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquer from Kiss New York. You all know that I’m usually a matte lipstick kind of girl, so trying a lip lacquer was a new adventure for me.

As soon as I swiped this product on, some key attributes instantly stood out:

  • The bold colors
  • The high-gloss finish
  • The great coverage
  • The long-lasting wear

If you’re looking for intense color with a high-gloss finish you have to give this lip lacquer a try! It was developed with the help of consumers, so it’s definitely one of those “for us, buy us” beauty products which is awesome! Here are a few swatches of the Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquer colors I tried.


Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquer Colors from Top to Bottom: Midnight Plum Black, Bubblegum Pink, Lively Hot Pink

Spring’s here, which means we’re all about the brights, but I’m still loving dark lips for nights on the town and Midnight Plum Black is gorgeous. It’s a deep plum hue that reminds me of a piece of deep, dark chocolate! If you want that Barbie-like beauty, then Bubblegum Pink is a must-try! I’m more of a hot pink lippie lover, so Lively Hot Pink is my color of choice for a statement-making lip look.

While I was fairly pleased with this product, I did find that the more intense of a look I wanted, the more product I had to use, and it felt a little sticky at times. It’s definitely one of those beauty items that I’ll have to play around with for the perfect consistency and coverage.

This product hits store shelves in March 2014, so make sure you keep an eye out for these lippies!

Are you a fan of lip lacquers? Is Ruby Kisses Lip Lacquer your list of lippies to try?

Ciao Bellas,
