There has been a lot of hype recently about Kylie Cosmetics! If you don't know what I'm talking about (where have you been?!), it's Kylie Jenner's company which is taking the world by storm. I managed to order mine on her website on the 7th of March and believe me it wasn't the easiest thing to do. Knowing that hundreds of her fans would be refreshing her page like crazy when they launched gave me anxiety but somehow with trembling fingers I quickly put in my details and managed to get my hands on Posie K, the shade I had been wanting the most. At one point, I thought of refreshing the page myself because the processing took a while and I thought I had lost my chance but thank God I didn't because apparently anyone who did that was notified that the product was out of stock, missing their chances by just seconds.
Anyway, enough with the chit chat! Let's get to the actual product! So.... when you order a Lip Kit, you will get a matte liquid lipstick as well as a pencil lip liner. One retails for $29 USD, making the price quite reasonable in my opinion, considering you're getting 2 products. First things first, I loove the packaging! I had seen so many pictures on Instagram and Twitter that I knew what to expect, but I still loved it ... very sleek and neat.
Posie K is described as a dusty, mauve pink. The colour is absolutely stunning and I think that it would suit a wide variety of skin tones. It would also look good with pretty much every eye look imaginable, even though I do prefer to match it with a cooler-toned look personally. It would also look pretty. The lip liner has the best formula I've probably ever tried, it glided so smoothly on my lips and it was in no way drying. I would probably even consider wearing it on its own.
As for the liquid lipstick, initially the high pigmentation and comfortable feeling really won me over. When I first swatched it on my hand, I tried washing my hands three times and it still wasn't going anywhere. I had to use an oil based makeup remover which I guess really says something about its lasting power. The product dries to a matte finish in a matter of seconds. I tried it out for a full day to test it out and for the first 2 hours I was completely in love with it. However as more hours went by, it did get more drying, sucking the moisture out of my lips and making every last crack ever so visible. I do have VERY dry lips though so I guess that could have something to do with it. Since the lasting power is so good, I tried putting a lip balm directly over it and that seemed to help loads, making my lips look much better. Also, if you like vanilla scents you will love this! I'm a sucker for a good scented product.
Overall, I'm still super satisfied with my purchase and definitely think it's worth the price. Are they worth the hype? Definitely! The pigmentation and the staying power were enough to convince me. As for the dryness, I haven't yet found a matte liquid lipstick which didn't end up drying my lips by the end of the day, so make sure you're equipped with lip balm and you're good to go! Also, don't try getting these off ebay - they are sold at ridiculously high prices (so not worth it.) I would suggest just keeping your eyes out for a restock as they ship worldwide.
So, have you tried any Kylie Lip kits? What do you think of them? If not, are you interested in any of the shades?
