New items from Kiss for Halloween 2011

Spotted the new Kiss Halloween display while out grocery shopping. This year they have lip gloss in addition to their awesome Halloween nail decals!


These are the new decals. NSHW05 and NSHW06. They're really similar to last year's, but this time there are some large body art stickers and slightly fewer decals. I still think it's weird that there's a decal that says skull... Really? Skull? Why not a picture of a skull instead? Regardless, the designs are adorable.

This is the new Kiss Limited Edition Halloween Dark Seduction Lip Gloss in black. There was another color on the display, it may have been red, but I only grabbed this one. Gorgeous packaging


It has one of those odd curvy applicators. I can't remember what brand had those... The long fuzzy wand that curves in... Know which one I'm talking about?


Here's the Dark Seduction gloss in black applied straight from the tube and then blended out a little bit. Flash and no flash. It's very dark, I was surprised! I thought it would be more sheer and grey, but it's not. It's a semi-sheer black with a purple tint.

The gloss has an odd and slightly unpleasant strong black raspberry candy scent. The scent lingers on my lips after the gloss is gone. It's just really strong and slightly too perfumey for me to really enjoy it much. Maybe it will grow on me.

The gloss formula isn't spectacular. It's slippery on the lips so it doesn't stay where you put it and it settles into all the lines in my lips. It looks great blotted down, but if I want to keep the glossy effect I may have to wear it over lipstick.

I found mine at Meijer in the Halloween seasonal section. I haven't seen these anywhere else yet.

  2. Yeah, I also think it's weird how there's a decal that just says skull. Not sure who would wear that instead of a decal of an actual skull.

    Wow, that lip gloss is more pigmented than I thought it would be, too. But...it's a shame about the fragrance. That turns me off immediately, especially since lip gloss is so close to your nose, so if you don't like the smell, it's going to constantly bother you.

    Thanks for showing us this. I love looking at Hallowe'en stuff!

  5. I am ALWAYS looking for new black lipgloss (ever since Lancome discontinued my beloved Piha black, grrr), but this doesn't look like a viable option. It *looks* thick, but you say it's thin and slippy, so the pigmentation must be reaaaaally weird. Guess my collection of Good Black Lip Stuff will have to remain at 3 things for the time being...

  6. Alexisaurus, haha aw oh no! Hopefully you can get some this year! I hate my lip swatches so much... but I'll try to take a picture and see how it turns out. Can't make any promises XD

    Collier, that's the thing. It *is* thick, but it's also slippery... It really is weird. It feels sticky when you put it on, but then it gets kinda... melty? And then it slips around. It's worth trying because it's so cheap- I think I paid $2.50-ish (need to check my receipt)

  8. Great Post I liked the nail stickes and also the lipgloss, I have a black lipgloss from another brand. It looks precious layered on MAC Dubonnet.

  11. Hrm - thanks for the input! Right now I've got a few that I'm pretty pleased with: Urban Decay Lip Junkie in "Perversion" is excellent (but not as good as that discontinued Lancome, dammit). Also a Shu Uemura black lipstick, and an Illamasqua black gunk-in-a-tube, both of which blend REALLY well with Sparkly Sheer Gloss Of Your Choice to make a good smooth black tint. But I'll definitely keep an eye out for this on future drugstore runs!

  12. Love the decals. I don't know about the lip gloss. I have a black lipstick. I've never worn it outside. Too scared to do that.

  13. Love these decals! Hope I can find them; Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday and I love it and anything Fall related. May even buy the gloss if I find it if only for the packaging. :)

  14. OMG I am going to have to stock up on those decals!!! I love Halloween for that very reason. You can't find skull decals any other time of the year.
