Get "Kiss Worthy" Lips With FSL Cosmetics: A Review And A Giveaway!

I love supporting smaller, up-and-coming businesses. So you can be sure I was thrilled to meet Kimberly Riley, the brains behind FSL Cosmetics (Feel Good, Smell Good, Look Good), at a blogger mixer during the recent New York Fashion Week. Kimberly, a cosmetic chemist, has a passion and a love for her new line that is frankly just oozes out of every aspect of her being! I know from "tweeting" and chatting with her that she spends hours every day working on and perfecting her current lipstick and lip gloss offerings. And I love them!

I had the opportunity to test out Pink Colada and 14 Karat lip glosses and Vino lipstick. Upon application, I was immediately struck by the smooth, non-sticky (and I mean zero tackiness!) texture of the glosses. They provide lovely color and high shine finish, but are extremely light on the lips. The hint of sparkle is gorgeous! I have been wearing Pink Colada, a beautiful pinky-mauve, on its own (I love the way it makes me feel when I have very little makeup on!), but I think that this shade would complement a pink lipstick or even a more nude color very nicely. 14 Karat, is a yellow gold gloss with subtle shimmer. This one is sure to add a richness to a variety of lipstick colors, especially nude tones. Vino lipstick is a creamy, rich, and beautiful cranberry red with a lovely sheen, that can be built up or sheered out on the lips, depending on the desired level of intensity. All of the FSL products are infused with lip healthy vitamins and antioxidants and smell deliciously of juicy fruits (Pink Colada's scent reminds me of a Pina Colada...yummy!)

I am dedicated to providing reviews that are 100% my own opinions, bias-free. If I ever feel that I cannot give my readers honest feedback on a product, I will not present a review for it.

  1. My G perfume makes me smell and feel good. I would like the Pink Colada Lip Gloss.

  2. My Coolwater perfume Makes me smell good, and it also makes me feel good, because my fiancee compliments me every time I wear it. It is the only perfume I have wore that he really likes.

  3. What makes me look good is when I get a full night of sleep. I then don't wake up with huge bags and dark circles. Insomnia is a problem for me but on those nights it doesn't strike I feel like a million dollars the next day.

  4. I feel good & smell good when I'm wearing a feminine scent--like Philosophy Amazing Grace. I like to layer the shower gel, body lotion and fragrance so it lasts longer!

  6. What makes me feel good is reading inspirational quotes on Twitter. I love it :) - @thattweetthing

  7. I feel good when my cat is in my lap and I have a full glass of cabernet sitting next to me!
    Thanks for the giveaway:)

  8. What makes me feel good is a little bit of blush! I love to dab blush right on the apples of cheeks to give me a youthful glow. I plan on following @fslcosmetics on twitter too!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  9. Spring time makes me feel good! The flowers blooming and sunshine just do a world of good for the soul!
