Hello makeup lovers! It’s about time I wrote a blog about some of my favourite makeup products!
I wasn’t sure about writing a blog about Kylie Lip kits, as although I love makeup and cosmetics, I’m not very outgoing with the colours I choose and I tend to stick with “safe” colours such as varying shades of nudes!
However I do love the Kylie Lip Kits and glosses and have already ordered several, so I think they are definitely worth a mention!
One thing I do find frustrating about the Kylie Cosmetics range is that items are currently only available to order directly through the Kylie Cosmetics website and, living in the UK, this means high delivery charges and then, even more annoyingly, customs charges are then charged on top! This means reasonably priced cosmetics end up costing you a pretty penny in the end! My advice? Make a note which items you want to order and keep an open for buy one get one free offers on the lip kits! These buy one get one free offers do come up quite regularly and will of course save you money on products and money on postage if you buy a few items at a time! Keep your eyes peeled on the Kylie Cosmetics Instagram page where these special offers are usually announced! Make sure you get in early though as products sell out very, very fast!
The Kylie Lip Kits consist of one liquid lipstick and one pencil liner. I’ve only bought the matte variety of kits so far but they are also available in the velvet variety. The lip liner is an ultra long wearing lip liner with a creamy texture which glides on very easily. The lip liner can be sharpened in most standard sized sharpeners. The matte liquid lipstick contains a “high intensity pigment” which is extremely long wearing but also very moisturising, so the long wearing of the lipstick does not dry out your lips.
Anyway, the Kylie Kip Kit and glosses I have tried so far are:
Maliboo Lip Kit
Maliboo is recommended for use on fair to light and light to medium skin tones and is a light cool-tone nude colour.
It is my favourite lip kit colour so far and I’ve already stocked up in case it is discontinued!
Moon Lip Kit
Moon is recommended for use on light to medium skin tones and is a taupe nude colour.
Exposed Lip Kit
Exposed is a warm mid-tone beige colour.
Dolce K Lip Kit
Dolce K is a deep beige nude colour.
and the glosses I have tried so far are:
King K Metal Matte Lipstick
King K is a soft metallic gold colour. The Metal Lipstick gives you bold metallic lips with a creamy feel and smooth texture.
While this is a long wearing formula, again it does not dry out your lips. Throughout the day your lips remain moisturised with a shimmering metallic finish.
Many people layer the King K lipstick over the top of their favourite matte lipstick for an ultra-dramatic look.
Literally is a neutral mid-tone nude. I especially love this gloss because Kylie Cosmetics sent it to me for free when I placed an order during their last buy one get one free offer, as an apology for making me wait for my order because some items were out of stock! Bonus!
The glosses are again ultra-pigmented and glide on the lips smoothly and evenly. A blend of vitamin E and highly moisturising ingredients provide hydration and moisturise the lips, while natural lip enhancers provide volume.
Again you can wear the Literally Gloss alone or layer on top of your favorite Matte Liquid Lipstick.
I hope this has given you an idea of the product – as I tend to go for the same nude/neutral colours, here is an idea of some of the other shades which are currently available:
Pumpkin (a dirty mid orange tone)
Wicked (a deep violet)
Mink (a rich taupe brown)
Kristen (a warm brown berry)
Vixen (a “blackened vampy plum)
Mary Jo K (a deep red)
22 (a vibrant burnt orange)
As these products are only currently available directly through the Kylie Cosmetics website, please please be wary of all the fakes that are doing the rounds on places like eBay. Even the fakes are very difficult to spot so cost wise, if they look too good to be true, they probably are – don’t waste your money or risk buying cosmetics filled with god knows what ingredients!!
A really highly recommended product – I just hope they will soon be more easily available in UK stores!
