I recently discovered Kiss New York, a new brand of makeup for women of color. Although Cover Girl has been my go-to brand for a while now, I'm impressed by Kiss New York's flawless coverage.
Before I went to a press preview I applied the Ultra Cover & Stick Foundation in "Chocolate," a maximum coverage-yet-lightweight foundation that matched my skin tone perfectly. The "True Tone" formula mimics the warm yellow and red undertones for women of color.
Acne Cover & Cream Foundation, which gives you natural-looking coverage and helps banish your blemishes.
But even with two foundations on, I didn't look like a contestant on RuPaul's "Drag Race." The active ingredients in the cover cream (soothing salicylic acid, green tea, macadamia seed oil, shea butter oil, and vitamin E) are great for oily and acne prone skin. The foundation does double duty; it covers existing acne and promises to control future breakouts without drying out your skin or clogging your pores.
Kiss New York makeup is sold online and at an urban beauty supply store near you. Most items are under $8.
