A couple of weeks ago I finally managed to stay up late enough and get myself some of the Kylie Lip Kit from Kylie Jenner’s makeup like, Kylie Cosmetics. They’ve been on sale now for several months but they usually sell out in record time and getting hold of them can be quite an ordeal. With that being said, I persevered (and stalked the website for hours) and finally got my hands on the three nude shades before they sold out again. Now before trying these, I couldn’t quite work out if the hype surrounding these liquid lipsticks was solely because of Kylie or if they were actually amazing products – now I’ve tried them here’s my thoughts…
The Kylie Lip Kit comes in a rather snazzy box, with Kylie’s signature melting lips on the front and colour coordinating sides to the product inside – and I would like to note that the colour on the box isn’t exactly reflective of the shade inside so just keep this in mind. Each kit comes with a liquid lipstick and matching lip liner and they retail for $29 (approximately £20 in the UK), which I personally think is super reasonable considering you are actually getting two products. The products themselves have a rather nice packaging too, with the liquid lipstick housed in a glass lipgloss-style tube with a doe foot applicator and the lip liner is not too dissimilar to that of MAC liners with a pop off lid and the ability to be sharpened.
The three shades I chose, in the end, were (below: left to right) Koko K, Candy K and Dolce K and the reason I went with these was that I wanted shades I could wear comfortably every day and these are all perfectly nudes / pinks. Koko K is the lightest shade in the whole Kylie collection and it is definitely the pinkest toned, which at first but me off but having worn this several times now, it’s definitely the perfect pale pink. Candy K is a pinkish nude tone and sits in the middle of the three I own, while Dolce K is the darkest of the three and is a light brown nude (this one really doesn’t look like the packaging colour at all). All three shades apply beautifully and they are by far the longest wearing lip products I’ve ever used; I actually had a hard time removing them on first use and had to try several methods before finally opting for an oil-based remover. Scent-wise, they all have a very strong vanilla fragrance that I happen to love but I can definitely see this being a downside for some people. Either way, the smell disappears straight away and you are left with a super matte lip after around 10 seconds.
Unlike a lot of matte lip products I’ve tried before, these are not drying in the slightest and applied over the lip liner, I find myself forgetting that I’m even wearing anything on my lips! The lip liners themselves are super creamy and work well to line or completely fill in the lips, the only downside though is that the creaminess means they do have to be sharpened quite regularly. That’s only a minor complaint though.
Overall, I’m super impressed with all three of the Kylie Lip Kits that I picked up and I can definitely say that they totally deserve the hype they receive. If you can get your hands on them I’d recommend them highly and if I had to choose a favourite, I’d go with Candy K simply because it’s the perfect pink toned nude for me. Next on my list are definitely the new metals Kylie has released, they look like nothing I’ve ever tried before!
Have you tried the Kylie Lip Kit yet? What are your thoughts?
