Kismet Cosmetics Succulent Collection (Elope and On Point) and Velvet Collection (Vino) Swatches and Review


Kismet means destiny in Arabic, Hindi, and a lot of different languages. So, I believe it was in my kismet to discover Kismet Cosmetics. What a delightful brand, which currently has two lines of lipsticks – The Velvet Collection (Semi-Matte Lipsticks) and the Succulent Collection (Liquid Lipsticks that stay glossy and do not matte).

I received one Velvet Collection lipstick in Vino and two Succulent Collection lipsticks in Elope and On Point.


Starting with the Succulent Collection, this collection consists of liquid  lipsticks that stay glossy instead of matte. These are really moisturizing and come in gorgeous colors. If you’re not into matte liquid lipsticks, these are a great way to join the trend.


Elope is an on-trend dusty nude and is quite flattering and because of its glossy finish, it makes the lips appear fuller.


On Point is truly on point. If you like brighter shades, this one is amazing!


And, finally the Velvet Collection’s Vino. This shade is my favorite right now. I am loving deep reds, and this one is SO comfortable to wear and the last is fantastic, as well!



These gorgeous lipsticks are so comfortable and long-lasting. They are perfect for those looking for a break in between matte lipsticks or just throughout the Winter, so your lips can survive the harsh temperatures!

They have also just launched a new program that helps YOU find the PERFECT shade:

KismetTM Cosmetics Adds Personal Touch to Choosing the Perfect Lipstick Shade

#MyKismetColor will enable women to pick the right lipstick shade with help from a licensed makeup artist

COVINGTON, La. – If you’ve ever wanted your own personal makeup artist to help choose what lipstick to wear, this hashtag

Boutique cosmetics brand Kismet now offers a helpful way for women to choose the right lipstick shade based on their

personal needs with the introduction #MyKismetColor. Through the program, women will have direct access to company

founder and licensed makeup artist Caitlin Picou, who will provide a personalized Kismet lipstick shade recommendation.

Picou said she decided to launch the hashtag due to popular demand and the company’s founding premise that “fashion is

head to toe.”

“Many customers ask me which Kismet lipstick would be best for them based on their complexion, hair color or even the

type of event they’re planning on attending,” Picou said. “Given my background in and love for makeup artistry, I wanted to

make it easy for women to contact me directly so I can provide a more personalized Kismet experience.”

So, how does the program work? Picou said it’s quite easy. Simply post a photo on Instagram or Twitter with

#MyKismetColor, pointing out any particular needs, and Picou will personally assist in picking the right lipstick shade.

For example, Picou said if a woman is in need of the perfect pink lipstick to complement a fair complexion, all she has to do

is post a headshot with #MyKismetColor, and she will Tweet back or comment on the Instagram post with the best shade.

Likewise, if an outfit calls for a lipstick to tie it all together, post a selfie in the outfit and Picou will provide the finishing touch.

For consultation with added privacy, Picou said women may also send their photos to her Instagram or Facebook inbox.

Kismet products are made in the United States and are currently available at and assorted specialty

boutiques. For more information on Kismet products, purchases or to become a reseller, please visit the website or call 985-
