Happy Thursday! It’s been almost a week since my last post because things have been non stop since then. I returned from New Orleans late Saturday night and have played catch up ever since. But today, I am super excited to share something with you all that I am a bit obsessed with. Prior to my trip to New Orleans, I was able to snag up a few of the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits. So I thought, why not put them to the test while out in humid hot weather of New Orleans to see if they would actually last. So today on Style Me Samira, I am sharing my opinion & reviewing the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits…
First off, let me start off by saying that this is not a sponsored post. Just my personal opinion on something that I want to share with you all. In fact, I am not even a fan of the Kardashians. But I am makeup lover especially when it comes to matte lipsticks. I can’t even begin to tell you how many lip products I own but let’s just say its way too many to count. I have to also admit that when these Kylie Lip Kits first came out, I tried incessantly to get my hands on just one color but failed after so many attempts. Luckily as the months passed, the colors I so desperately wanted all restocked & I was able to secure a few of them before my trip.
So what’s the verdict you may ask? For $29 for the whole kit (liquid lipstick & lipliner), I highly reommend it. I have already mentioned above that I am obsessed but now I am going to tell you why. But below I will get in-depth of all the colors and what I really think about Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits:
First off, the matte liquid lipsticks lasted literally all day. Even in the humid hot weather, the Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks did not come off. They also are surprisingly hydrating. When you think of matte lipsticks, you think of dry lips. But these Kylie Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks are anything but. I applied the lipliner & liquid lipstick just before heading out for the entire day. Immediately after application, the liquid lipstick starts to dry into a matte but doesn’t let the lips feel chalky or heavy. Even after eating breakfast & lunch, I barely had any off the product rub off. Only if you wiped very hard or ate something with an oily texture. I actually had forgotten that I had applied the lip kit on several occasions because the wear was not annoying at all.
I have tried many matte lipsticks; from solid to liquid, and have not found one I have liked as much as the Kylie lip kit. I was very impressed with the overall feel. Just like I mentioned above, on several occasions, I had forgotten that I had even applied the product because it felt like I had nothing on. The only time I felt that it was on was during meals when I was constantly rubbing my lips on napkins. Only then was I reminded but it still didn’t feel like most matte lippies which are super dry and stiff.
Packaging makes all the difference. The Kylie Lip Kit comes in a sleek, signature drip design packaging that stands out just as much as the product itself. Second, they smell great. This may not be an important factor but it’s definetly a plus. Great smelling product just makes it more appealing.
Each lip kit comes complete with a liquid lipstick & matching lip liner. Start off by first ling your lips with the liner and then fill lips with liner as well. Next apply a layer of the liquid lipstick. You can build the lipstick by adding more layers to create a more even coat. But one layer is plently as it packs a whole lot of color & has no streaking. The liner and lipstick are incredibly smooth & soft against the lips that it literally glides on. Best part, its dries perfectly matte.
Third, they look great on all skin tones. No matter the color I tried, they looked great on my lighter skin tone. The more nude colors did not wash me out and well the bold colors just popped. There is a variety of 12 different shades in the Lip Kit collection each with a matching lip liner. I purchased the following colors:
KOKO K – Pale Pink
POISE K – Mauve Berry
MARY JO K – True Blue Red
KOURT K – Deep Purple/Vamp
