The massively profitable liquid lipstick and lip pencil duo, developed by Kylie Jenner of the controversial Kardashian household, met with such nice demand in its early days that the spike in visitors for kyliecosmetics.com slowed down and crashed its server (no because of worldwide delivery), robbing the tardier consumers like myself the possibility of being one of many first worldwide to personal the coveted lip package. No sooner had every part been snapped up than disgruntled supporters began crying foul on Kylie Cosmetics Fb web page about individuals carting out a number of units simply to resell them on eBay for extra 5 occasions their retail value. The issue was so prevalent that it kinda prompted Kylie to restock extra usually and I ultimately acquired my arms on not one, not two however EIGHT lip kits (and planning to purchase the newer shades to finish my assortment).

But I'm going to review *just* these five today..

However I’m going to evaluate *simply* these 5 immediately..

“You should be loopy!”

Admit it, you want to have one although you had been by no means a fan of Kylie Jenner. As a matter of truth, me neither! However as the web goes berserk over her kits, the joy begins constructing and it inadvertently catches you. You clinch one lip package only for the hell of it, put on it and end up liking the shade and texture. Then, what do you do? YOU CAMP AT YOUR COMPUTER AT UNGODLY HOURS (IN GMT+Eight TIME ZONE) FOR MORE! That’s what occurred to me.. besides that I used to be already a compulsive lipstick hoarder lengthy earlier than I knew about her enterprise enterprise so yeah… my spending spiraled uncontrolled  😳  On a brighter be aware, that additionally means extra make-up evaluations! Yay!

Kylie's

Kylie’s “handwritten” letter of appreciation (as you’ll be able to inform, this was a Valentine’s Day haul)

After greater than two weeks of agonizing wait (to be actual, 5 days for my order to be shipped out, eight days for it to succeed in my U.S. deal with and one other 5 days for my cargo to reach at my doorstep – all within the title of saving cash 😥 ), the Lip Package Field with the enduring black dripping paint design on the perimeters (which has now been modified as a result of circumstances of theft from doorsteps) was lastly delivered to me. The sturdy field, meant to suit 9 lip kits (Three x 3), seems actually fancy and cute. However for a flat home delivery price of US$8.95 or S$12.30 (it’s US$14.95 or S$21 for direct delivery to Singapore, simply in case anybody is questioning), I anticipated waaaaaay swifter supply. 13 days is ridiculously lengthy, don’t you agree? -_-

I learn that Kylie personally illustrated the signature full-lip motif with dripping fluid set in the identical shade because the liquid lipstick encased within the packaging. Properly.. I don’t know if anybody else shares the identical sentiments however I’m not likely keen on the packaging design. There’s simply an excessive amount of white house across the motif that it seems tremendous plain. And don’t get me began on the awful materials used for the field. C’mon Kylie, with the thousands and thousands of {dollars} you’ve earned from us, certainly there’s greater than sufficient cash to interact an expert designer? I imply, it’s not like your stuff are that low-cost okay..

My first buy from Kylie Cosmetics is a deep chocolate brown with gray undertones as a result of the opposite shades I had set my eyes upon had been offered out in a flash. However being a religious darkish lipstick wearer, I was contented with my one and solely alternative of lip package accessible.

Like the opposite shades, True Brown Okay has a robust vanilla scent. It’s matte and principally opaque. Even with out the usage of the lip liner, the perfectly-sized lipstick applicator that’s neither too fluffy nor skinny is ready to line my lips completely. Each glide on easily on the lips and are extraordinarily simple to make use of. The lipstick, nevertheless, does go away a barely chalky and drying end which feels (however not fairly visibly) flaky after three hours.

Resulting from my previous expertise with related dusty pinks like Sweet Okay, I thought it was going to clean me out and make me look ghastly. Subsequently, this heat pinky nude was not amongst my most popular decisions of lip kits initially. I had solely purchased it to finish my assortment.

In a wierd flip of occasions, I acquired extra compliments carrying Sweet Okay than I might often get with my different typical nude shades. Even a stranger couldn’t resist asking me the place I purchased it from! I supposed it wouldn’t be advisable for her to attend by her cellphone at 7am (generally 4am.. these are occasions I’m glad I’m nocturnal) for the product to be restocked so I really useful her ColourPop’s Clueless (reviewed right here) as a substitute which is the purple model of Sweet Okay with extra blue undertones. Sadly I don’t have Clueless anymore, so no swatch comparability for that. My apologies!

Little question, Sweet Okay took me abruptly with its pretty shade of matte pink which complemented my tanner Chinese language pores and skin tone so darn nicely, however I can’t say the identical for the runny high quality of this specific lipstick shade which makes it liable to spillage if not dealt with correctly. Its solely benefit is that’s dries down quite a bit quicker. Having stated that, Sweet Okay, too, feels drying and I didn’t like that hairline cracks kind immediately after I stretch my lips.

Right here comes the brown cousin of Sweet Okay! This extremely sought-after shade is described as a deep beige nude however extra precisely a dusty mocha brown. The lip pencil, although, appears to look a shade lighter than the lipstick, which kinda blends into my pure lip color. The lipstick has principally opaque protection with a velvety and light-weight texture which feels nearly non-existent on the lips.

With a single software, the Dolce Okay lipstick fills the lips effortlessly however fails to hide a lot of the lip strains whereas additional emphasising these on the higher lip. It, nevertheless, dries down fairly shortly and leaves a clean and evenly matte end. Nonetheless. I actually love this color and have worn it out on a number of events already! 🙂

The launch of 22 spells the tip of utilizing names suffixed with ‘Okay’ for the lip kits. It’s about time as a result of I used to be beginning to really feel irritated by the redundant Okay’s which served no helpful objective other than including an additional syllable to the product title.

The liquid lipstick element of 22, a vibrant burnt orange named after Kylie’s fortunate quantity, seems very opaque however feels a tad drying on the higher lip. This flattering shade is quite a bit thicker in consistency as in comparison with the pioneer shades which led me to consider that there have been enhancements made to the standard of the liquid lipsticks. Upon software, it leaves a vivid and very pigmented pop of heat that provides dimensions and fullness to the lips.

Principally, there’s not a lot to complain about this package moreover the truth that my pencil broke (however not likely a problem as it may be sharpened). It’s a beautiful color that goes with most pores and skin tones (particularly honest pores and skin), so I don’t know why it isn’t as fashionable.

Kylie picked “Posie Okay” from a sea of ideas from her followers left on certainly one of her Instagram updates inviting everybody to call her then-upcoming lip package. Even immediately, I nonetheless do not know what “Posie” means. It’s presupposed to be a misspelling of Posy? Or Posey? Hmmm, possibly Posey as a result of identical to its definition, Posie Okay appears spectacular in footage however seems to be the exact opposite. It’s a pity as a result of the color is basically attractive.

This cool mid-tone berry feels weightless however tends to intensify the lip strains. The poor consistency of the lipstick compelled me to reapply on sure areas which didn’t obtain its full protection. It leaves a really drying end, feels chalkier than the opposite liquid lipsticks and worsens when it is available in contact with liquid. One thing should have gone flawed within the components of Posie Okay as a result of the standard is strikingly totally different from that of the opposite Kylie Mattes I purchased.

All in all, for the worth of US$29, I believe it’s a discount (though nonetheless fairly expensive for poor college students like me) for a fairly good liquid lipstick and lip liner, particularly because it’s from a celebrity-owned model.

Lastly, having used each Kylie Mattes and ColourPop Extremely Matte Lip Liquid Lipsticks, I might additionally wish to shed some gentle on the broadly debated similarities between the 2. Whereas it’s true that there are blatantly related shades from each manufacturers (and as with many different beauty manufacturers), their end are completely worlds aside. In distinction to Kylie Mattes, I personally discover ColourPop Mattes absurdly drying, a lot in order that they have an inclination to crumble minutes after software. On prime of that, I really feel extra comfy carrying Kylie Mattes as they don’t give my lips the terrible contracted feeling that ColourPop does. I assume the outdated saying, “What you pay is what you get”, aptly describes the disparity in high quality between the 2 right here!

Do you agree with me? Depart your ideas within the feedback under!

Keep tuned for my evaluations on the opposite Kylie Mattes I’ve in addition to all of the Metals! Thanks for studying! 🙂
