I've tweeted about it (follow me on twitter) and mentioned it in my May favorites, but I finally got my hands on my Kylie Jenner Lip Kit! I ordered Posie K, which is a magenta/pink and is perfect for my everyday look. I know that a lot of people want to read reviews before purchasing so today I'm providing you with an in-depth review of my lip kit!
The lip kits retail for $29 not including the $8.95 for basic 3-6 day shipping. I placed my order on May 13, and it shipped on May 16. It was delivered to my mailbox on May 18, but I didn't receive it until the following Wednesday due to problems with USPS, not Kylie Cosmetics. I would consider this good timing for processing and delivery as I would have received my lip kit 5 days after ordering it.
As far as the formula for both products I'm highly impressed. I'd heard lots of critiques that the liquid lipstick was drying, which made me nervous since I already struggle with dry lips. I agree that if you just apply the lip liner and lipstick you will experience more dryness than normal, but if you apply a super moisturizing product such as vaseline before putting on Kylie's lipstick then that problem is eliminated.
The packaging is great quality from the black & white box that it comes in, to the tubes of the lipstick and lip liner themselves. The lipstick tube is a solid, clear material that feels extremely durable. The lip liner is a black with a matte finish also feels durable. My only qualm over the product is that they lip liner is not retractable and must be sharpened. I have a strong preference for retractable lip products because it's so much cleaner and sleeker to access at all times.
Last, but not least I want to discuss the wear of the product. As advertised, the product does not fade or wear off when eating or drinking. I've noticed on numerous occasions that Kylie's lip products last me an entire school day, which cannot be said for other lipsticks I've used. It also lasts all night, which I discovered after falling asleep without removing my makeup. When I got up in the morning my lipstick was still as prominent as when I fell asleep. While I'm impressed, I'm not 100% sure that this is a good thing. It definitely takes some effort to remove the lip product with makeup remover, which is why I do not wear it every day.
Overall, I think I'd give Kylie's Matte Liquid Lip Sticks & Lip Liner a 4 out of 5. The point off comes from the price, limited availability, and fact that the liner is not retractable. I major deterrent of this product is the price and availability, so in comparison, I'm going to try the NYX Lip Lingerie products and do a post comparing the two sometime soon. I do, however, enjoy this product and hopefully, I can get my hands on Koko K in the next restock!
I hope you enjoyed this post, leave a comment letting me know if you've tried the Kylie Lip Kits, and which one is your favorite! Stay tuned, xo Lauren.
