Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of the magical Kylie Lip Kit. Is it made of real unicorn tears? Will you love it like Kanye loves Kanye? Is the hype Kardashian real or real real?
Not to fear, my friends. I—a liquid matte lipstick only type of gal—put them to the test.
In case you’re not aware, each kit comes with a lip liner and a tube of liquid lipstick. I typically scrub my lips before I do anything just to get a smooth base. Afterward, I apply the lip liner all over my lips, not just on the edges. Then, I carefully go over the liner with the liquid lipstick while avoiding looking like The Joker. For any liquid lipstick newbies out there, this will take a bit of practice.
I normally do not gravitate toward pink lippies, but Koko K is the perfect shade for brunch or a first date. It really did give my face a perfect little punch of color.
Dolce K is the shade I’ve been wearing the most, as demonstrated by the shorter lip liner. It gives my face that Kylie Jenner je ne sais quoi. (Yes, I hate myself for typing that.)
Mary Jo K
To be honest, I don’t love Mary Jo K. Despite how deep it looks in the packaging, the red still has a bit of that orange tint that I avoid. I think I’m still going to stick my Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiery, which has an amazing blue tint.
Despite that, I am obsessed with the formula. It’s long-lasting without overly drying, and the viscosity (Omg, I used a science word, guys!) is just perfect. Plus, it smells like vanilla cookies, which, ya know, doesn’t hurt. I highly encourage you to check out Kylie Cosmetics, especially if you love yourself a good lip. The hype is real real.
