Probably the most talked about subject in the world of celebrity last year would be Kylie Jenner’s Lips, I think it’s pretty fair to say that they have become an industry in their own right and Kylie has confirmed this by releasing her own cosmetics; Lip Kit by Kylie.
First released in November in three shades; Candy, Dolce and True Brown, the products sold out within minutes and have since been in huge demand. Sadly, I was yet to get my hands on one of them, that is until February 2nd when the kits were restocked and three shades were added; Posie, KoKo and Mary Jo. I’m definitely glad I waited to buy a Kylie Lip Kit as the new shades are definitely more of my preferred choice. However, I’d heard such good things about the products that I was almost apprehensive to try them, worrying they wouldn’t live up to my expectations – trust me, they did!
I’m writing this post on the day my Lip Kits arrived, I ordered three shades; Mary Jo, Candy and Posie on 2nd February and 13 days later they arrived all the way from the United States. I was perfectly happy to wait and overall it really didn’t take that long for International Shipping, obviously if you’re in the United States they are likely to arrive within a few days.
The Lip Kits are packaged extremely well, they have their own separate packaging which is absolutely gorgeous, as well as the outer box they are placed in with foam protection. When you open the box there is a beautiful card with the Kylie Cosmetics Logo on the front and a lovely message from Kylie on the back, you can tell how passionate she is about the kits and it’s really sweet to see how hard she has worked to share them with all of her fans.
When I say these Lip Kits are like no other lipstick I’ve tried, I mean it! It truly is a unique formula and I definitely hope to buy more in the future – KoKo I’m coming for you! Not only do the packages match each shade of the Lip Kit, there is a piece of cardboard within the box which keeps the liquid lipstick and lip pencil separate from one another. The Lip Kit features Kylie’s lovely signature and they are the perfect size for keeping in your handbag or even carrying around with you. However, I doubt you’d really need to apply the Lip Kit as they stay on so well!
When trying the shades on I found it pretty difficult removing each one, which to me is a great thing as who doesn’t want their lipstick to last all day!? Firstly I applied the Lip Pencil, this is definitely the best pencil I’ve used before as it literally just glided on! I’ve had some in the past that can be so hard and very rough on your lips, but this was wonderful to apply. It’s such a great idea that you can purchase the lipstick and lip pencil that are exactly the same shade and they come together, nothings more frustrating when you have a great lipstick but not a lip pencil to match!
After I finished using the lip pencil I applied the liquid lipstick, I usually stay away from glosses as they can be so messy and sticky but this was completely different. I honestly couldn’t believe how quickly it transformed from a glossy lipgloss into a matte lipstick! It doesn’t feel dry on my lips, it actually feels like I haven’t got anything on them and I’ve had it on for hours and eaten my lunch and it’s still there. I really can’t wait for Kylie to release more shades and add more cosmetics to her amazing brand.
Although they are currently sold out, follow @kyliecosmetics on Instagram and it will inform you when they are restocked, I really hope Kylie releases some coral and purple shades. Out of the three lipsticks I have I think Mary Jo would be my favourite – I do love my reds! Candy is a beautiful nude brown and Posie is a lovely medium pink, I’d love to try Dolce and True Brown but I don’t think I could pull them off sadly.
