When Kylie Jenner first released her makeup collection Kylie Cosmetics, I have to say I did not buy into the hype, as I have never seen Keeping Up With the Kardashians and so she wasn’t particularly someone I followed on social media. However, when she released the Vacation collection last year I absolutely fell in love with the packaging and the shades of the eyeshadow palette so I placed an order and definitely didn’t regret it.
I was so, so surprised in all honesty at the quality of the products, that ever since I have been paying ridiculous customs charges to get my Kylie Cosmetics fix. Kylie Cosmetics offers free international shipping on orders $60 and over and on an order of that sort of amount, I usually pay around £17 in customs charges, which in all honesty isn’t SO bad considering they’re coming from the US.
When Kylie recently dropped her Spring Lip Kits, I instantly fell in love with Say No More and Bare. There are four shades in the collection, but one of those is June Bug which was released with another collection previously and so I already have. The Lip Kits are $29 each, which currently equates to around £21, which for a high quality liquid lipstick and a lipliner, that isn’t too bad, you would definitely pay more at say MAC, Smashbox etc.
The Kylie Liquid Lipsticks come in matte or velvet finishes, and even though I like the matte ones, which really do stay on all day long, I prefer the velvet finish myself as they’re softer when dry as I have quite thin, dry lips, so I find this feels lighter on my lips. So, on to the shades….
Say No More is a neon pink, and it really is a stunning shade, which will look insane with a tan this Summer. It is a blue-toned pink which means that it isn’t going to add a yellowing effect to the teeth, so there’s no need to be too cautious of it. The Kylie lipliners are super soft and apply beautifully to the skin, making it easy to get the perfect pout.
For me, Kylie produces the best nudes, with a shade to suit so many different skin tones, and so I wanted to try Bare, which is a nude pinky beige, and one of those shades that is so easy to wear, whatever the time of day, time of year or occasion. I literally haven’t stopped wearing it since I bought it! The applicator of the liquid lipsticks is firm for easy application but also a slanted sponge at the same time so it gives great coverage in just one swipe.
I can’t wait to see what Kylie has in store for her Summer collection! I had better get saving….
You can find the Kylie Lip Kits online at Kylie Cosmetics.
