Trust Me I know what you’re thinking…
Another “OMG I LOVE KYLIE COSMETICS” post. But no, it’s not that kind of post at all. The company has been around for a while now, so im sure you’ve heard all the positives or horror stories that surround the brand. I’m going to give you my experience and then I’m going to let you know which Lipkits I’ve been loving for this Fall season so far!
Honestly when I first heard that Kylie was coming out with her own cosmetics brand i was skeptical. “Will it be any good?” “Will it just be a money thing for her?” “Will she actually care about what us, essentially her fans want?” I made my first order and was able to get True Brown K, Dolce K and Candy K. Of course it was like a Hunger Games sequel to get them because they were sold out so fast but with the help of my fiance we did it! Shipping did not take long at all i believe i had them within a week or so. My first time swatching them and really seeing the colors and the formula consistency I was floored. The pigment was amazing, they weren’t patchy or sheer at all which I wasnt expecting! Now the con they are a bit drying. I do recommend doing a lip scrub before and putting on some kind of lip balm, and also doing a lipscrub when you take the product off. I then placed another order on one of her restock days for 22,Dead of Knight, her metal matte set as well as her original gloss set which included the shades Like, Literally and So Cute. I was in Kylie Cosmetics heaven! Till I really stopped purchasing every time she dropped something new and thought about it. Most of her more recent shades were dupeable, and for the price it totally wasnt worth it. I was paying $30+ for lipkits when i found similar shades at Colourpop for $6. It was hard for me to give up my Kylie Cosmetics addiction, but it had to be done. I just could no longer justify paying that much for a mediocre liquid lipstick when there were brands that were better and more affordable. Now, im in no way shape or form bashing the company. I love all of Kylies products. But being honest, they really weren’t worth the money. It got better now that you can buy them in singles, honestly that made me want to purchase again. But my lippie collection needs to slow down its growth to make way for my growing eyeshadow pallet collection!
Now for the pros and cons
Like I said before, a CON is how drying they are. I’ve never experienced a formula as dry as the Kylie Lipkit. Another CON is the price. Recently the price point has been way better with the new KOKO Kollection coming in at $40 instead of $60. But the Kyshadow pallet coming in at $42 is cardboard with no mirror, I just couldn’t justify the purchase!
Moving on to the PROS, the scent is so HEAVENLY! When you first open a Kylie liquid lipstick you smell vanilla. ITS ABSOLUTLY AMAZING! Second, is the quality of the product they dry fully matte unlike come companies whose formula says matte but you still have a sheen. They also are fully opaque which I love , especially when it comes to darker colors.
