Kylie Lip Kits review

About two weeks back I purchased the much hyped about Kylie lip kits. The ordering process was smooth, I received my order confirmation instantly and only got my shipping confirmation one week later. It took another week to arrive. I paid around SGD$180 for four of the lip kits which comes up to around $46 for one. It was really worth it since each lip kit comes with a matte liquid lipstick and a lip liner as well....that works out to be $23 for each product which is similar to other lipstick prices in the market.

The three colours I got were Posie K, Koko K and Candy K.
The fourth box was also Candy K. I didn't get the other colours since I knew I wouldnt' be wearing them as often as these three shades.

Swatches of the three Kylie lip kit colours that I have.
To be honest I feel like the colours look different on everyone depending on your skin tone and your lip colour. Candy K looks darker when swatched on the hand as compared to on my lips. All the lip kits have this really artificial sweet scent to it, it's oddly familiar but I can't put a finger to what it smells like.

I heard they changed the formulation of the lip kits, a lot of people said that the previous formulation was much better and the current formulation is rather drying. It isn't as moisturizing as I would like it to be but then again, it is a matte lipstick so I shouldn't be expecting much.

The doe foot application, sadly, feels exactly the same as the ones from Colourpop! It's stiff/hard but it does get the product onto the lips for even spreading so I'm not really that particular about it.

The formulation is really, really watery and similar to Colourpop's formulation when I'm applying the product on. A lot of people have been comparing them to the Colourpop's Ultra Matte lips and I would say that the only differences would be
1. The colour (since none of Colourpop's UML is exactly the same, only similar)
2. Kylie lip kits is not as drying as compared to Colourpop UML
3. The scent. Colourpop's UML doesn't have a smell but the lip kits have a sweeter scent
4. When dried, the lip kits have a powdery texture which feels super good while Colourpop's UML isn't as powdery

Removal of the product takes a bit of work as with all other matte lipsticks. I use my Bioderma Cleansing water to rub it off but it's much better to use an oil based remover for them. Last night I used my Perfect Whip makeup remover cotton pads which I have lying around in Bae's house and it gets the product off from my lips easily.
The lighter colour is easier to removed (Candy K and Koko K) as compared to Posie K though. Also, Posie K does stain slightly on the lips!

That being said, the lip pencil that came along with the lip kits are such a dream to apply because they glide on really easily. You're supposed to line your lips with it before filling in with the liquid lipstick.

Here's a photo of me wearing Candy K. I really love how it looks on me and I could definitely see myself constantly reaching for the lip kits!

There are currently 7 lip kit colours available at the moment. It is rumored that Kylie would be releasing another deeper berry shade soon!
I'm hoping she would release more cosmetic products such as contour kits or bronzers in the future too.
