Kylie Jenner Lip Kits | First Impressions

I'm pretty sure you've heard of the ever-so-hyped (and criticised) Lip Kits from Kylie Cosmetics. I've wanted to get my hands on some ever since they were released, but with all the controversy around missing orders and messed up lip gloss wands, I avoided them at all costs. Not to mention how hard they were to get a hold of when first released! On Cinco De Mayo - Kylie introduced a one day only buy one get one free offer. By some sort of miracle, the website wasn't totally sold out when I went to have a browse and I ordered 2 of her famous lip kits!

I ordered Candy K and Kristen, since they are the colours I usually lean towards on a day to day basis.

(Above) This shade is Candy K, which I have to say is my favourite out of the two. It is a dusty pink/brown toned shade, which is pretty much the colour of all the lipsticks I reach for the most. I love the liner, because it is very soft and creamy. It helps fill in some of the cracks on my lips in order for the matte lipstick to not cling or go patchy on the chapped areas. One feature that I find a bit difficult is the consistency of the product when wet. It can be a little bit difficult to apply, but I would suggest that 'less is more' in regards to how much product is on the applicator. If you apply to much, it can, in effect , 'pool' up, and once dried will not look even. Scrape the applicator on the side of the tube to make sure you don't have too much product and can be applied a lot neater.

(Above) This shade is Kristen. Honestly, I'm a bit disappointed about the shade of this one. It looked a lot more of a brighter pink on the website, and on the box. This is a lot darker than expected. I couldn't wear this with a day-to-day makeup look, so this one is being used strictly to go along with heavier eyeshadow looks. I'm most likely going to be wearing this for a wedding in a few weeks time, so I'll be sure to share some pictures over on my instagram @_staticnova_!

Have you tried any of the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits? What did you think of them?



  1. How did I not hear about this but one get one free offer. I'm devistated!
    Loved this review, definitely want to try them still I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for the instagram photos!

  2. I'm very on the fence with them, I bought exposed not so long ago but I also find the shade needs to be worn when I go all out with make up because of my complexion which makes the hefty price I paid not seem so worth it!

    I might have to try another shade because the formula I really do love!
