Kylie Jenner's luscious lips has been the talk of the town and now, her lips are even more talked about as she released her own cosmetics line and the debut of the Kylie Matte Lip Kit. It has even now expanded to glosses and metallics.
With exclusive branding, Kylie Cosmetics products sell out quickly in a matter of minutes after restocking. The matte lip kits especially are really hard to get your hands on and you have to be ready once an update on restock is released. I, myself, have been trying for a couple of months to get them. I'm always too late when they restock and by the time I get online, everything is sold out. This time around I patiently waited for the restock and once it went live at Kylie Cosmetics, I had every matte lip kit in my cart. However, every beauty enthusiast seem to be hounding the release as well because once u got to the last page of check out I'm only left with two kits - meaning the rest has sold out!
I was able to purchase Candy K and Posie K although I really have been wanting to get Dolce K.
The Kylie Matte Lip Kits come with a matching lip liner to get the perfect and plump, lasts all day, 'Kylie Lip.'
Posie K is described as a dusty, mauve pink. When swatched on the back of my hand, it appears true to description.
However, on my lips, it does appear slightly brighter, with it leaning more pink than mauve.
Candy K is described as a warm nude. A good combination of brown, peach and pink, creating a warm nude and is true to its description when swatched on the back of my hand.
On my lips it is a pale, peachy pink. Still a good nude shade but the warm brown undertone seems non-existent.
The lip liners are really good. They are creamy and rich. Nothing too exciting to be honest when it comes to lip liners.
So here's what everybody has been waiting for, my thoughts on the matte liquid lipsticks. There was a big controversy on the Kylie Lip Kits when rumors started floating around that they are one and the same as the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip. Kylie however did say that they don't have the same formula and exact colors as Colourpop. I do believe they use the same laboratory as Colourpop.
Anyway, the Kylie Matte Lip Kits applies thinly than the Colourpop Ultra Mattes but it does apply evenly. With some Ultra Mattes it could apply unevenly. This is true to only some Colourpop Mattes and also more of their older shades - I think Colourpop has improved their formula because I noticed that the newer shades has a better texture and application.
The bolder shades of the Ultra Mattes, though dries matte, does slightly transfer. The Lip Kits however doesn't have any transfers. I can't say that same for the bolder shades of the Lip Kits like Mary Jo K, 22 and Kourt K since I haven't tried those out but Posie K and Candy K definitely doesn't transfer.
Eating and drinking... I haven't had a problem with the Ultra Mattes. Although it does come off slightly it does not flake off or get patchy afterwards. You would still have nice, matte, even colored lips. The Lip Kits, however, are horrible for eating and drinking. They start rubbing off and flaking. You definitely have to remove the whole entire thing and reapply.
The Matte Lip Kits (all matte lippies) are definitely not for dry lips. You would really need to exfoliate and moisturize prior to application. Don't forget to blot out the balm before applying the lip liner and the liquid lipstick.
The Lip Kits smell absolutely amazing! Think Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino! That's the best thing about this product that is worth the mention.
At $29 + shipping for 2 products (liner & liquid lipstick) I don't think the price is too bad at all however I think this product is too hyped up. I like it but there are so many products out there that are similar. I love Colourpop products and since the Ultra Matte Lip are only $6 apiece, I think I'd rather buy those than spend so much on the Kylie Lip Kits. Will I buy more Lip Kits? Maybe not.
