Kylie Jenner Lipkit Review
If you know me, you’d know I love me some matte lipsticks. I love trying out different colors and think I look my best with a nice lippie. Now I have tried many matte lipstick brands and can say I was really impressed with the Kylie Jenner Cosmetic’s line. I was able to snag 3 of the matte lipsticks before they were completely sold out in colors; KOKO K, POSIE K and 22. She restocks every 1-2 weeks or so and if you download her app you can get notifications as to when exactly. I however I was creeping around on Instagram (cause nobody got time to pay $2.99 a month for an app, sorry Kylie) and saw that someone from her Instagram comment section posted the restock times and was able to get a few.
I am quite white in complexation, bless my soul, it’s been a long sun-less Winter in NYC. So I felt the colors looked different on me, especially the Posie K which was more of a bright purple than what it looked like online. I however appreciated the consistency in all the color’s I have tried, they were all super easy to glide on, stayed on all day and did not dry out and chip. My biggest pet peeve with matte lipsticks are how very drying they are immediately when applying. This makes it hard to add more on the lips without feeling like it’ll start to chip off around the corners of your lips. Kylie Cosmetics was very smooth and felt a lot like how NYX mattes feel when applying, very creamy and even. The price point is $29 and it includes a lip liner pencil with every lipstick which very easy to use and works wonderfully.
She recently launched her Metal mattes and I was able to yet again grab 2 colors; KING K and REIGN. I very excited to try out these metals especially since they’re matte because I’m not a huge fan of glosses. I was unable to get Heir because I guess everyone really wanted that one and it was completely sold out. I’m not going to lie, so far I have been very swayed by her mattes. I know she has the huge influence being she’s sorta the lip queen regardless that she has lip injections, she should be proud of herself (side note: if you had her previous lip’s amongst your gorgeous sisters you’d be doing lip fillers too shiiiii). She has also been listening to her customer’s complaints about the gloss brushes and I see she has taken action. So I give her an A+, she’s learning and correcting her mistakes as she goes so I can’t knock down her success. I don’t by any means aspire to be Kylie Jenner or any of the Kardashians, but hey I loved her lipsticks so shoot me.
