KYLIE LIP KITS: Worth the Hype?

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Hi everyone! Today's post is all about the KYLIE COSMETICS Lip Kits. And let me tell you, I was pretty skeptical, as I often am when celebrities come out with makeup lines. But...I was actually so impressed with her cosmetics! The Lip Kits are beautiful, long-lasting, and are so moisturizing that they don't leave your lips dried out and chipped. 

It took me a few months to actually go about purchasing the cosmetics: thanks to good reviews and some amazing new shades that were coming out. Check out my first impressions video below. I go into each lip kit individually and give you swatches and show you how it wears on the lips! 

Below I'll outline the four lip kits and give you super cute selfies of me wearing each one (vain, much?) Hopefully this will give you a good idea of how each shade looks. Overall, I love these lip kits. They're $29 for each lip kit. In the kit, you get both a liquid matte lipstick and a lipliner. It's pretty pricey but getting both the matte liquid lipstick and the lipliner makes it a better deal. The lipliner is creamy and easy to apply. I've found that it's best to apply the lipliner with the darker lip kits because it's harder to apply the darker liquid mattes without a bit of an outline. 

I also love how long-lasting these are. I can wear them all day without much chipping or wear and tear. The only time you get a little movement of the product is in the inner part of your lips where you'll be talking, eating, and drinking. 

I'm also impressed with how moisturizing these are. As a person with pretty dry skin and dry lips (who is constantly needing chapstick) these are actually great for that dryness. It's surprising really, because most matte liquid lips completely dry out my lips and chip, making it look cracked and yuck. 

The first two shades I bought were Koko K and Leo. At the time, Leo was a birthday edition product, but thankfully she restocked it! 

KoKo K is a beautiful and perfect pink that's perfect for everyday wear. As you can see below, it's incredibly flattering! It's a great salmon shade and it works both for fun and professionally! 

Below is Leo, which is a mix between a deep red and a brown, making the perfect rich burgundy. This one is lovely for a night out, as it's pretty intense for a day look. I've also noticed that I have to use the lip liner with this product because of how dark it is (which I don't have to do with KoKo K).

Below is Kristen, which is by far my favorite. It's a great mix between a pink and red, kind of a strawberry-toned lipstick. It's so wearable and pretty and I find myself reaching for it and Koko K more than any other lipsticks.

Lastly, I bought Maliboo, which is a cool-toned nude lipstick, perfect for fall. I'm loving wear this on a day to day basis because it's intense, but insanely wearable.

  1. Oh that's nice to know they moisturize! We've been thinking about purchasing them also but our lips are so dry to begin with that we hate putting anything on them!!

    You look gorgeous in all of the shades!
