A few weeks ago a powder blush broke into pieces inside my makeup bag (sigh), convincing me that it was time to switch to a much safer cream blush.
Kess Berlin Duo Stick
I remembered a few video ads from Kess Berlin promoting their Duo Stick and I ended up picking the shade “Rose-Champagne Glow”, which has got a natural-looking pink blush and a highlighter very similar to my beloved Becca Cosmetics highlighter in Champagne Pop.
You can apply the Stick directly onto your skin and blend it with your fingers or, vice versa, pick up the product in circular motions and get rub it on your cheeks.
For my skin tone the shade “Rose-Champagne Glow” is perfect: the blush is easy to blend and stays there for a good amount of time (cream blushes last a little bit less than powder ones).
The price tag is 32€.
Kess Berlin Easy Eyebrow Pencil
Another big change was going from the Sleek Eyebrows Kit (it’s the one I used in 2018 to create fake freckles!) to a pencil. When was the last time I used a pencil? High school perhaps?
It has been weird to use a pencil again after so many years but it works fine, although I’m having a hard time letting go of the Sleek Kit, which was expired and quite bulky.
The Kess Berlin Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brow suits my eyebrows’ colour and helps me draw fine lines that actually look natural. Promoted!
The price tag is 19€.
Kess Berlin One Swipe Kajal
A kajal named “One Swipe” sets high expectations from the start, as long as you don’t expect to blend it easily! In fact, I’ve tried to apply it on the upper eyelid and blend it quickly, but it seemed already set in stone.
It’s a different story in the internal rhyme: here it’s been smooth and creamy.
The price tag is 19€.
Discount codes and tracking
One cool thing I’ve noticed about this brand is that they constantly offer discount codes! I got all of these products at 25% off with the code CIAO25A. I suggest you go over Facebook Library Ads and check if they’ve got any ads running with promos.
On the other hand, I’ve found it frustrating that the package is not traceable and they don’t even disclose this choice on the website.
