If you have paid attention to makeup industry news (or even celebrity news) you surely would have heard of Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits.
I don’t even know why I wanted a lip kit so much… But I decided to jump in, fork out the money and just buy it anyway. And I didn’t stop at one… I got four… There goes my money for this payday! But I was very excited to try them out and see if they were worth it…
The colours I chose were Kourt K, Dolce K, Koko K and Posie K. I thought it was a great range of colours to get. I got Kourt K and Koko K as single liquid lip colours, and Dolce K and Posie K as the lip kits with the lip liner and liquid lip colour.
I was really excited to get them as they have been super popular and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I didn’t manage to get my hands on the lip kits first time around and I am fairly certain the colours I got are the new formula, so I can’t compare them to the old formula, but hopefully my reviews are still helpful.
Koko K Liquid Lip Colour
This was the first colour in the range I bought and I absolutely love this colour. It’s a bit of a combination between a dark blush pink and a nude colour. It’s a really nice semi neutral lip shade. I think it is a great colour for me and I wear it to work most days now.
Using the liquid lip colour only, it was fairly easy to apply and the formula was a good consistency – not too runny and not too thick. It dried very quickly, which I was pleasantly surprised at.
The colour seems to last ok throughout the day. It doesn’t seem to be transferable (i.e. it passes the kiss-the-back-of-your-hand test) but it does seem to slowly disappear when you eat or drink something. I also found that when I top up the colour, my lips feel a little gritty after the colour dries over the top of the old leftover colour.
Posie K Lip Kit
I absolutely love this colour! It’s a beautiful rose pink and it is definitely a Vintage Barbie colour! My photos seem to make it look brighter and more orange than what it is. I don’t think this is a particularly unique colour in terms of lipsticks, in fact I’m fairly certain I already have dupes of this colour, but I still love it nonetheless.
The lip liner is really creamy and easy to use. However, I think this creamy formula led to it having poor staying power, even when the liquid lip colour is worn over the top. I found it was the least reliable with staying power and most of colour was gone after only 2 hours wear, and drinking a Boost juice through a straw. I thought this was pretty strange as I didn’t have this trouble with the other colours… This colour definitely felt more moisturising than the other colours, which might explain why it came off my lips more easily than the other colours.
Kourt K Liquid Lip Colour
I wish I got the lip liner with Kourt K a it is a really dark colour compared to what I am used to. It is a dark purple/plum colour and usually I wouldn’t wear this kind of colour. Surprisingly the Kourt K colour works really nicely with my skin tone and hair right now. I do feel a little bit gothic wearing it, and I find that it is definitely a night time colour over the other colours. Regardless of whether the colour suits me or not, it seems fairly unique as I have seen plum lip colours but not this exact colour. I think it would be hard to dupe and I feel that Kylie did a good job in colour choice for this one!
Because it is so dark, it kind of goes a bit patchy when it dries, especially after a few hours. I wish I bough the lip liner as well because I think this would stop the colour from being patchy and would make it easy to fill ‘gaps’ in the colour. Another thing is that it is super difficult to get this colour off your lips. It hardcore stains your lips! Make sure you have a lot of waterproof makeup remover to get rid of this one!
Dolce K Lip Kit
This is one of the most popular colours and the colour that Kylie Jenner is famous for. As soon as I wore it I knew this was the quintessential Kylie colour and I can understand why she loves this colour – it’s such a flattering colour! I am glad that I got this one in the kit.
Justr like Posie K, the lipliner is creamy, smooth and easy to apply. It’s even easy to sharpen the pencil when it is blunt!
I used the lip liner as an all over base colour before putting on the lip colour. The lip colour looked darker than the liner when I first applied it, but it quickly dried and it seemed to dry lighter and closer to the same colour as the lip liber. I found that by having the lip liner underneath, my lips felt more moisterised. Like Posie K, the colour seems to have less staying power when combined with the lip liner.
I love the lip liners and think they are really nice to use. I really like the creamy formula and compared to liner from the likes of M.A.C., I would definitely rather the Kylie Lip Kit liners.
One nice thing about the liquid lip coloours is the sweet smell they have. I think it’s vanilla or maybe even a coconut type smell… ether way it’s something sweet. It’s not overpowering but it is a light scent that smells pretty yummy! Which is always nice when you’re putting it on your lips.
