Jess Wright x Kiss Launch Party

47 Comments


Who doesn't love a good party?

Planning an outfit, getting your hair and makeup done and spending quality time with friends?
If only I could do that everyday.

Recently I was invited to a launch party and this one was a cracker.
For all my non-Brits reading "TOWIE" also known as "The Only Way Is Essex" is a reality TV show that airs here. I guess it's some what similar to the Real Housewives of *insert desired place here.*

Well TOWIE star Jess Wright recently became the new ambassador for the KISS beauty collection and the PR team kindly contacted me to see if I wanted to come along.
Of course I accepted and brought my plus one.

Jess is representing KISS nails, eyelashes and imPRESS nails. The US store can be found here however if you're in the UK you can find them at your local Boots or Superdrug.
Personally, I've never been drawn to false nails. Mine are really strong and look like they've been french manicured so I can get away with painting them myself. If I want a salon like finish I use my holy grail top coat.
Though I always had glossy nails, my only issue was how often the actual polish chipped and the annoyance that occurs when one doesn't have enough nail polish remover. (Something I always seem to fall victim to.)

The thought of quickly being able to throw on colour without making a mistake and maybe carrying a small tube of glue with you if one happened to fly off into the near distance? Possibly poking someone in the eye?

I was hopeful but still skeptical.
The lovely technician first started by shaping them to give them a bit more pizazz.
The press ons were then measured against my nails in order to find the perfect fit.
And now... the fun part!

Nail glue was added to both my nail and the other nail then quickly pressed together.
(Yes that was a weird explanation but give me a break here.)

Even as I type this post I still can't help but stretch out my fingers to look at them. I feel like I've been kept out of the loop with these and will definitely wear them whenever I'm too lazy to paint mine.



After a few glasses of wine, the next agenda was the eyelash station. I have very curly eyelashes and it takes heaps of mascara in order to make them visible to the human eye. On the two occasions that I have been brave enough to opt for false eyelashes they have both resulted in complete and utter disaster.

When I want to wear eyelashes I want them to feel like I'm not wearing any opposed to feeling as if metal rods are weighing my little eyes down. Both Jess and the make up artist recommended the Lily lash describing them as "perfect for a night out."
She started with measuring them against my eye and cut off the smallest corner
They were glued onto my lash line and the excess glue was wiped off with a cotton bud.
Light and fluttery!

Alongside learning some game changing beauty hacks, I also got to meet another lovely blogger! You know when you meet someone for the first time but it certainly couldn't have been the first time because you've already bonded over any and everything?
That's exactly the experience I had when I met the lovely Jodie.
You can find her amazing blog here.
Dress - Zara
(Currently sold out but I've linked other dresses I think are equally cute)

Bracelet - Givenchy



Well that's all for now So-ho, see you soon!
(Awful pun, I'll just see myself out)
