The first Monday of September is always Labor Day in the United States and most brands celebrate this day with a huge SALE! It came to my attention that Kylie Cosmetics offered buy one, get one free on all matte and velvet lipsticks. I thought this was the chance for me to finally buy some of their lip kits.
I don’t wear much lip products as they never stay all day and I’m too lazy to touch it up every time. But, ever since Kylie came out with her beauty brand I wanted to get my hands on some of her lip kits. The choice was hard as I liked almost every shade, but I decided to buy 4 of the lip kits. The website stated that international orders will be delivered within 10 to 15 business days. I really wished that I’d would be delivered faster as I wanted to have it so badly, but I couldn’t do anything about it. So, I just had to wait and be patient. So, 15 days later I was able to pick it up at a pick up point. I followed the order carefully on usps.com and knew that it was already in Amsterdam but it was held at the duane. Therefore, I had to pay import duties ☹. #LifeOfAshleySharon
Let’s just go to the shades I bought:
From left to right: Hazel, L.A., Exposed & Brown Sugar
When I unpacked my package I noticed that the colors were in pretty the same color range. All nudes. Next time I’ll chose some more variety. The package came in a cute pink box with a card from Kylie Jenner for her 21st birthday. Still, happy birthday to you Kylie😊!
The lip kits
The lip kits are, as the name already says, kits with a liquid lipstick and lip pencil. I bought 3 mattes and 1 velvet lip kit. All packages contain the signature of Kylie Jenner herself and are all in the same design. The lipstick contains 0,11 fl oz/3,25 ml and the lip liner 0,03 oz/1,0 mg. These lip kits costs $29,00 each and can only be bought on www.kyliecosmetics.com.
I bought this shade because I wanted a warm brown shade for my lips. This is a pretty shade I’d wear in autumn or winter.
Exposed is one of Kylie’s favorites so I had to try this one. And I understand that it’s one of her faves. It’s a warm mid tone beige. You can wear this shade at any occasion.
This is the most nude one of the shades I’ve ordered. It’s almost the same color as my lips are.
This is the only velvet lip kit I ordered. It’s a vibrant shade which I like to combine with a army green sweater. It’s actually a shade I’d wear in the summer. Because of the velvet finish it fades faster than the other shades. This color doesn’t last all day. Though, this color makes my lips feel not dry during the day.
What Kylie Cosmetics says
Let’s first see what the brand says about the lip kits.
The #KylieCosmetics Lip Kit is your secret weapon to create the perfect ‘Kylie Lip.’ Each Lip Kit comes with a Matte Liquid Lipstick and matching Lip Liner.
This ultra-long wearing Lip Liner has a creamy texture that glides across the lips for a very easy and comfortable application. The Lip Liner sharpens easily in most standard sized sharpeners – just make sure your sharpener is not dull!
Matte Liquid Lipstick
The Matte Liquid Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry out your lips.
I’ve been trying the lip kits for a few weeks now and I’m very enthusiast about the Kylie Cosmetics lip kits. The scent of the lipstick is sweet, but once they dry the scent fades. The mattes are real matte and last almost all day. If you eat something greasy the lipsticks will start to fade. During the day the mattes can make your lips dry. To avoid that feeling I add a little bit of lip balm to make it feel more pleasant.
The lipsticks are highly and intensely pigmented as the brand claims. The texture is light weight and apply very easily. It dries fast, so don’t try to add another layer once it’s already dry. I’ve tried that but the result wasn’t very pretty. One layer is enough because of the high pigmentation. Mostly, when doing my make-up I always apply a thin layer of lip balm to hydrate my lips before I apply lipstick. I can imagine that if you have dry lips and you apply this lipstick it might make your lips feel even more dry.
Long story short; I am in love with the Kylie Cosmetics lip kits and I’d definitely buy more of them if I could just order it and it would be here within 3 days or something without risking the chance to pay import duties. The lipsticks last real long and are highly pigmented as the brand says it would be.
