The Staggies took the lead on the half-hour mark though Yoann Arquin, who was purchased from Notts County last month, before Yann Songo'o, on loan from Blackburn Rovers, doubled the advantage six minutes later with his first goal in just his second SPL appearance.
Kris Boyd responded for Killie early in the second half before Cardiff City midfielder Filip Kiss, who had scored four goals in three matches prior for County, was sent off in the 76th minute for a second bookable offence.
That allowed Boyd to chime in with an injury-time equaliser for Killie who had Celtic loanee Jackson Irvine put in a full 90-minute shift and Brighton & Hove Albion's Vitalijs Maksimenko and Dundee United's Michael Gardyne on the bench.
In the County camp, Songo'o's Rovers teammate Jordan Slew played 73 minutes before being replaced by Melvin de Leeuw, Rotherham United's Michael Tidser played for 65 minutes prior to Alex Cooper coming on and Slovan Bratislava's Erik Cikos was an unused substitute.
