A month ago I wrote about my first Kylie Lip Kits; Candy, Posie and Mary Jo and since then I decided to order two more shades, 22 and Koko. Today they have arrived and I am very happy with my latest additions!
I ordered 22 and Koko on the 29th March and fifteen days later they arrived, a couple of days longer than my first order but they are delivered all the way from America so I was happy to wait. However, this time my order was subjected to a customs fee of £12, which has frustrated me a lot as I ordered three Lip Kits last time and didn’t recieve any charge. Of course this is nothing to do with Kylie or her products but it has sadly put me off ordering more.
I must say that although I think the quality of the products are amazing, the shades of the lipsticks can be very misleading. With my previous shades, Posie and Candy, I absolutely adored how they looked on Kylie, however I was slightly disappointed with the colours on me. I felt Posie was a lot darker and not a vibrant super pink like it is on Kylie and Candy was also significantly different. I guess it all depends on your skin tones, luckily I feel the shades Mary Jo and Koko look a lot closer to the colours they are advertised as. I’ve noticed quite a few people have commented about the shades looking different so I’m not the only one who has noticed this.
I decided to buy Koko and 22 because they were very different to previous Lip Kit shades and I was hoping Koko would be a lot lighter on me – and it was! Koko is described as a pale pinky nude and on my lips I think it ironically looks a lot like the shade I thought Candy was, so I’m happy about that and but it’s lighter than Posie and Candy. 22 is a burnt orange shade and although it’s not as vibrant on me as I would like, it’s definitely the shade it is advertised as.
Any of you who follow @kyliecosmetics on Instagram will know about the upcoming metallic metal shades; King, Reign and Heir. Although I won’t be able to buy any of them at this current moment in time, from the swatches Kylie has shared I’d definitely wear Heir, it’s my favourite shade out of the three for sure and I think it would compliment blondes with pale skin.
Speaking of new shades, Kylie has also brought out three nude glosses; Like, Literally and So Cute. As I’m not really a lip gloss person I’ve yet to purchase any, although if I was to pick my favourite shade I’d choose So Cute. I’m pretty sure So Cute is the lightest shade so from my experience with the Lip Kits, picking this one won’t look too dark on my lips. The irony is, I absolutely love a bold lip colour, but there’s a fine line between just right and too intense. Although I still love the shades Posie and Candy, it is frustrating seeing them look so perfect on Kylie and a different colour on myself.

Apart from the Lip Kit themselves, the other exciting part of ordering from Kylie is receiving the iconic Kylie Cosmetics Postcard. Sadly, for some reason this time I didn’t find one in my box, I don’t know if this was by accident or because it was my second order. However, there’s a different postcard with Kylie’s Glosses and I think I might even prefer that as it is a photo of Kylie from her Glosses music video. If any of you have tried the other shades or glosses then please let me know what you think, I’d love to hear your opinions!
I must thank Kylie for introducing me to liquid lipsticks, I still can’t get over how amazing they are and I can’t wait to try other brands versions too. It’s also so refreshing to see a celebrity use their own products and be so involved in the process. I’m so excited to see the new shades of Lip Kits Kylie releases and continue to watch her brand grow, she’s doing so well and should be very proud of herself!
