DKMCosmetics Gel Eyeliner

A few months ago, I was given a great opportunity to spend the night out in Hoboken, NJ. The reason? To preview the DKM makeup collection and the artist who has inspired it all, Dina of Dina’s Kiss & Makeup (DKM). I was even luckily enough to wear one of the must have looks of the fall.

Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

The event was intimate and engaging. I met bloggers from the area and across the world (Spain). Dina previewed three hot looks for the fall, including: pink on pink, glitter eyes, and vamp lips to bring out our inner 90’s grunge.

The looks were all perfected by DKM products and Dina walked our small group through each step and product, while answering my many questions.

What’s great about an event like this, was that it was both engaging and open. Dina gave amazing and real advice on all things beauty and she showed us first hand what to do and what not to do.

The best piece of advice: Some women say that they can’t wear a certain product. They can wear anything, they’re most likely just using it wrong.


I was lucky enough to have my own makeup done and looked AMAZING (if I do say so myself). I debuted the glitter eye, which complimented my skin tone and hair. (See photos below)

Thanks to Dina and DKM cosmetics, I was even able to overcome my fear of doing a vamp lip and bought one from the collection.

Actually, I bought a lipstick, lip liner, and gel liner! How could I not? All products are used in Dina’s shop in Hoboken and I’m all about supporting local and reliable beauty products.

If you’re ever in the area, check out Dina’s super cute shop and her pink hair (which makes me envious).  I can’t wait to scope out the DKM Cosmetics Website for some more goodies (I’m thinking a brow pencil.)

How do I rate DKM? 5/5 stars for local products that last!
