I’m not a size 3, I don’t own a MacBook, I’m pretty disorganized and I have NO marble tables or counter tops in my house.
I am not your average blogger. When I had my original blog I was very discouraged. Seeing other peoples pretty blogs with pictures with marble backgrounds or fancy vanities always made my heart drop. “No one will read your blog.” I had myself convinced. I would look on Instagram for inspiration only to see pretty, thin, blonde women in fancy outfits living what seemed to be perfect lives.
This time around I didn’t look at blogging as a competition as I had in the past. We are all together. I’ve learned in the blogging community no matter your appearance or your at home life you are accepted. I love the blogging community for that very reason! It’s okay to not have the most expensive things. Make use of what you do have and flaunt it!
Your blog is as successful as YOU make it! As long as you’re proud of your posts and content that’s what’s important!
I’ve learned to make use of the space I have to take pretty decent photos and use products I already have to make posts! I love it! I don’t feel pressure to be the standard definition of perfect, because I am just the way I am! So if you’re feeling discouraged about entering the blogging community, don’t! There are so many accepting people! People who care about you and your character and personality above all things!
Thanks for viewing!
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.
What Kylie Lipkits I’m Loving for Fall

What are your favorite lip colors for the season?
Thank you for reading!
I’ve always loved makeup and fashion. I went to cosmetology school, worked in a hair salon, but that wasn’t my passion. I began really thinking of ways to pursue a career in the makeup industry about a year ago, and since then my world has been flipped upside down!
I found the brand Makeup Revolution about 6 months ago. They offer a wide range of products at a very affordable price range. I picked up their Iconic 3 palette as well as their Vivid baked bronzer in Rock On World. I put them to the test with this smokey purple halo eye.
- I primed my eyelids with the LA girl pro concealer in Toffee.
- I set the concealer with Sasha Buttercup setting powder.
- I set my brow brown with the first shade in the pallet
- I used the 4th and 7th shades in the pallet as transitional shades
- I then went into this Tartelette pallet and used the deep purple, called Bombshell, in the inner and outer region of my lid to create the “halo” effect.
- I used the 10th shade on a flat shader brush on the center of my lid.
When I was finished my eye look I finished the rest of my face makeup. Using the vivid baked bronzer as a highlight.
It applies beautifully and is very buildable!
All in all I give both products a 10/10 review. I actually highly recommend the vivid baked bronzer in Rock On World for Women of color looking for the perfect glow!
