I have not done any makeup/lipstick review last month so to make it up with you, my first set for the month of April will be the hottest and most sought-after (sold out in 15 minutes, yep.lipstick at the moment – KYLIE JENNER LIP KITS.

PACKAGING

I want to clarify that I bought the lip kits from a local seller and she was so nice to include the whole thing when she sent my orders. I wanted to experience the whole process of  ordering, etc from the official website but just I can’t. It’s always a battlefield out there! Again, her lippies were sold out in as fast as 15 minutes! You must be very fast or else, you stayed up late for nothing. Her last restock was scheduled at 4 PM PST which is 7 AM, Singapore time and no, I am not a morning person so again, I can’t. ;D

Kylie Jenner Lip Kit_Packaging Box

The lip kit boxes are are carefully placed in a box and when you open it, you will find the following:

  • website details (kyliecosmetics.com) printed in white letters and
  • her brand printed in bold letters and silver in colour.
  • Note from Kylie

The lip kits were wrapped with foams. This is something different as most of the stuff that I ordered online arrives in bubble wrap.

LIP KIT

The Kylie Jenner Lip Kit contains one (1) lip liner and one (1) liquid matte lipstick. They are housed in a white box white the brand’s signature lip logo as shown in the photos.

LIP LINER

This may look like your standard lip liner but it is very creamy. It reminds me of NYX retractable lip liners – pigmented and creamy. And to those who are wondering how they can sharpen their lip liner – just use your regular makeup pencil sharpener.

I don’t normally use a lip liner because I feel that it adds dryness when I wear liquid matte lipsticks, especially when you use MAC lip liners. That is also why I prefer NYX lip liners because they are creamier. However, it is undeniable that lipstick lasts longer when you use a lip liner first. Also, it gives a better payoff when you use complimenting colours.

LIQUID LIPSTICK

The product is placed in a transparent tube with a black cap. The brand name and “signature drip” are printed in the body of the tube. The name of the shade is printed on a silver sticker and pasted at the bottom of each tube.

Size as compared with other liquid lipsticks

Personally, I am not a fan of the overall design of this product. I like the design of the lip liner, but not the liquid lipstick.

Applicator/Wand

It comes with a standard applicator but it is very light to use. The applicator picks up a good amount of liquid lipstick so when you apply the product on your lips, you do not have to do a second swipe.

SWATCHES

*please note that due to the difference in undertones, the shades may look brighter or darker to different people.

For your reference here are my shades:
NC25 (MAC Pro Longwear Foundation) / 1.5 (MAC Matchmaster) Y225 (MUFE Ultra HD) / Light 4 Deauville (NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation)

CANDY K

Kylie Jenner Lip Kit - Candy K Review

Described as a soft, warm nude with a matte finish. This shade is the kind of nude that is very wearable. This is one of the first shades that I tested and have been using these for a week since then.

Here are my hand swatches under a room light and natural light:

22

Kylie Jenner Lip Kit Review_22_berryduchess

Described as a vibrant burnt orange with a matte finish. I love the colour and I have always thought of looking for an orange colour that is not too neon or too orange on me – something that I can use every day without getting that weird look from people and this is it. It brings back that 90s trend with a modern twist. This is another first in my collection.

Price:

  • Each Kylie Jenner Lip Kit is sold at 29 USD (shipping fee not included) 
    • If you break it down, it is like you are paying 14.50 USD each for the lip liner and liquid lipstick and that you don’t have the choice to buy just one (which is not so bad because the product surely delivers).
  • In Singapore, the price of online sellers may vary, but in average it is being sold between 60 – 90 SGD.

OVERALL:

PROs: 

  • The products are both very opaque and pigmented (individually used or combination)
    • 1 swipe is enough to v
  • Easy to use and apply.
  • It feels so light on the lips as if you are not wearing lipstick at all.
  • Not sticky
  • Long lasting/long wearing
    • When I tested Candy K, I had coffee and a Turkey ham and cheese croissant which is a bit oily but it did not move.

Kylie Jenner Lip Kit Test

This is a photo of the croissant and as you can see, there are no lipstick marks on it. Same goes with my coffee cup. Then I had curry rice for dinner and there was a little fade out because the food was very oily to start with. However, it left a good amount of stain on my lips that there’s no need to reapply.

  • No feathering.
  • Not drying and my lips weren’t flaky despite the 8 hours of wear before I removed my makeup.
  • Very minimal transfer (only if you eat very oily foods)
  • Easy to remove even though it seems that it can stand oily foods.
  • Made in the USA.

CONS: 

SCENT

  • It has a cake batter smell and taste that I really do not like. I like that kind of smell in my food but not in my makeup. But it wears off after a few minutes.

AVAILABILITY

  • The brand is not available in Singapore but you can still get it from online sellers
    • You can check CAROUSELL for local sellers and I ordered mine from merolshopsg.

ALWAYS SOLD OUT

  • It is hard to get through the website and like I said, the moment they restock, it is as good as sold out – the only question is, how fast can you place your order.

I say that these Kylie Jenner Lip Kits are great products mainly because it delivers its promises. You have a lot of choices in today’s beauty market, but not all can really live up  to their claims. I am happy that these worked for me and honestly, I love them. I have been using them almost every day (using different shades) and I’m considering to try the rest of the collection.

  1. 22 looks amazing on you! I just received Dolce K as present ( so late i know:P) and I LOVE it and 22 is definitely on top of the wishlist, I had MAC Lady Danger and Estee Lauder’s Kendall pure color envy matte and they just don’t deliver the warmy orangey feel i’m looking for, all of them are too neon for my asian skintone:( 22 looks just perfect!!

    1. I have the Lady Danger and the Estee Lauder that you mentioned just made it to my list! But I agree, they are loud and neon and 22 is just different. Though they are saying that there are dupes in the market but it was my first to try such a beautiful warm shade. Very unique and perfect for fall! 🙂 thank you for dropping by!

      xoxo!

    1. I posted a side by side comparison on my Instagram and you can check out from there. Basically, 22 is deep orange than Ginger and unfortunately, I dont have Pumpkin so I do not have a first hand info about that shade. Hope this helps.
