ABOUT KISS

KISS is a global leader in professional quality beauty products and treatments, with iconic brands sold in over 100 countries worldwide.

Empowering beauty enthusiasts to “Bring the Salon Home” is the KISS WAY since day one–when Mr. John Chang went to work inventing DIY beauty products that lengthened, strengthened and adorned women’s nails, with results worthy of a salon visit (and saved them time, effort and money!).

BRING THE SALON HOME

Everything you need, all in one place.

OUR CULTURE & VALUES

The KISS mission is to encourage an unwavering commitment to ethics, integrity, and excellence; to offer consumers cosmetics with the highest quality, efficacy, and safety; and to continue to provide cutting edge innovations that make every day more beautiful for everyone.

NAILS

The creation of KISS DIY artificial nails, followed by ready-to-wear glue-on nails (including a chip-free French mani), elevated the KISS success story, and orders flowed in from huge retailers including Walgreens and Walmart. But by far, the company’s shining star–the press-on nail–literally revolutionized the beauty industry: Women could get a perfect looking mani, in minutes, with reliably long-lasting results.

LASHES

From false nails to falsies
Thanks to groundbreaking innovations, KISS is a market leader in false eyelashes. Most recently, KISS Magnetic Eyeliner Lashes and GLUEliner (lash glue and eyeliner in one!) are true game changers, with a fast-growing, loyal fan base.

COSMETICS

Smart beauty
