So I finally got my mits on the Kylie Lip Kit in Koko K, I had been eyeing it up for a while now.
But I am gonna put one thing out there before I dive into the review, I wasn’t overly happy when I was stung with a £11.97 Customs charge.
Kinda took the shine off receiving something I had wanted for so long, but off I went sulking into the post office, I waited in a long queue, and then had to hand over nearly £12 to receive the parcel, well can you imagine the vibe?
So why did it annoy me? The fact that some people pay a Customs charge, and some don’t ( I never on my first Lip Kit). I think all American companies need to take a leaf out of Sephora’s book, and add the customs charge at checkout, so the customer can see the exact total cost.
Anyway’s that is that point done and dusted, onto the product itself.
I was more drawn to Koko K due to it being a pink nude colour, and I suit these type of shades. Brown nudes, well unfortunately, I just look I am dead.
It’s beautiful, this can’t be disputed. The lip liner is super soft, glides along the lip, and has the most amazing pay off. The lip product is totally gorge. Described as a pale pinky nude, I do agree with this, but it has a bit of a punch, it has a slight mauve undertone when you first apply it, and then it drys a little nuder.
Application is easy due to the long wand, and small soft applicator, this combo makes it easy to achieve a precise finish. The product feels super soft on the lip, and dries to a matte finish within 60 seconds. It’s super, duper matte, doesn’t feel drying, nor smudge, or flake. Plus it stays on for hours and hours, even when I eat and drink.
Personally paying around £30 ($42), for both products was initially fine with me, as you get a liner and lipstick, (only what you would pay in Mac), but with the £12 Customs charge added, well that brought my total bill to £42.
I love it, I will use it lots, but would I buy again? You know what, who knows? If I see a colour I like I probably would, as the product itself is pretty damn good.
As it is sold out, and well it ain’t fair me raving on about how good it is, if you wanted something similar, there are some pretty good dupes here that you can have a nose at.
Do you have any of the Lip Kits? Would love to hear which ones you love, or have your eye on?
