KOKO K & CANDY K | KYLIE COSMETICS


To be honest, here, I never would have believed that I was going to be in this situation writing a blog post about Kylie Lip Kits. Honestly, I've never had any interest in these whatsoever, but here I am - writing a post about them. By the chance of faith, I managed to end up with two of these.

THE FIRST IMPRESSION

My first impression about these, hmm. They look great. The packaging looks very simple, yet so pretty. So my first impression about these was really good. I thought, what the heck - I might give these a go. For you who already don't know, Kylie Lip Kits include matte liquid lipstick and a lip liner to go with it. Nicely both in the same package with $29 sign tagged on to them.


THOUGHTS

Yeah, they look pretty and all. They spread nicely, or at least they did so on my hand. I didn't try them on my lips and you're soon about to find out the reason why I didn't. The shades are absolutely wonderful, but I still can't see what's the hype here?
Maybe it's the brand. Okay, I'm sure it's the brand.

For me, the experience was a bit painful. I found washing away that lipstick off my hand really hard. I used proper makeup remover, I used water and soap but yet that lipstick was like glued to my hand. A few hours later, my hand looked like I was branded. So I don't know if there was something about the product that was wrong - highly doubt it, though, because these are not dupes - or was it because my skin is extremely sensitive and these lip kits seem to be a quite hardcore stuff.

The lip liners I really did enjoy, so maybe I'll be using those and mixing them with my own lipsticks that I know that are okay with my skin. So no, I'm definitely not going to try these on my lips because my face is too pretty to be ruined.

How's your experience with Kylie Lip Kits, have you ever tried them out?

  1. I'm not a fan of the Kylie kits, just so over priced just for the name! We all love a lipstick with staying power but it has to come off eventually!

    1. Haha, YEAH. It would be awesome if it was as easy to remove as it is to apply. I agree with you on that price matter - bit expensive.

  2. Vitsi mäkin haluaisin kokeilla noita! Mutta hinta on aika suolanen ja kun noita on niin vaikea saada :-( Pistäisin kunnon testiin työpäivän ajaksi että kestääkö vai ei! Ihanat värit valitsit :-) x Dora

  3. Hi Jasmin - I haven't tried these, Im not even sure they sell them in the UK. Thanks for the review, I like long wearing matte lipsticks but sounds like getting this one off isn't easy.

    1. Yeah, for me it wasn't :D I don't know how it works with others though! I don't believe that they sell these anywhere else than over at their website at the moment.

  4. Oh no! The packaging certainly looked lovely so it's a shame the products don't really meet expectations! x

  6. Haluaisin kyllä, mutta toistaiseksi en ole raaskinnut ostaa.. Joku päivä! Tosin, Kyliella tulee nyt siihen tahtiin kaikkea uutta, etten tiedä mitä niistä edes haluaisin ensin hankkia :D

  7. I do want to try these but the shipping and customs just puts me off, I think other brands do things that are just as good, if not better and are easier to get hold of

  9. Well, i have read a lot of different thought for these kits. I would like to try them but i am not going to spend my money on these since i would find better and cheaper in drugstores. So, if they send me a package i might try them 😉 Your review is fantastic though! :)

  10. I felt like getting these but I didn't. I feel like the whole brand is overhyped. Your swatches are very beautiful tho x

  12. Oh no, your experience with them sounds really odd! But you're not the only one to have a bad experience with the liquid lipsticks. I really despise them as they make my lips so dry and feel really cakey after a short while.. The lip pencils sound nice however!

      The pencils were great though, pretty sad to be honest :D

  13. great review and great colour shades you choose. never tried them but I am quite curious whether they last long hours on lips after a drink or a meal or just on skin.

  14. Ha A honest review, these are rare lately. I can pnly say this much since I'm not into makeup XD
    But I'm realy glad that you chose to tell it how it is instead of writing what people want to hear.

  15. Onpa sulla ihana blogi! :) kauneusjutut on aina mielenkiintoisia! :))

  16. Mulla on kerääntynyt näitä muutama. Itseasiassa toi Koko K on mun ihan ehdoton suosikki näistä! Ainoa miinuspuoli tosin on just tuo, että niitä ei meinaa saada pestyä pois.. :) (Vaikka pitkäkestoisuus toki plussaa!)

    1. Joo, onhan se pitkäkestosuus plussaa mutta tuo ehkä kestää vähän turhankin hyvin :D

  17. Mulla on näitä muutamia ja itse oon saanut nää helposti pois öljypohjaisella meikinpoistoaineella :). Toinen kikka on laittaa siihen päälle huulirasvaa, jonka jälkeen se on mulla lähtenyt pois ihan normaalillakin meikinpoistoaineella.

    1. Voisin kokeilla tota huulirasvakikkaa! Ihan kyllä käteen enstiks, en oo vieläkään uskaltautunut laittamaan huuliin tota :D
      Mulla on kyllä tosin öljypohjanen toi mun meikinpoistoaine, hmm... :D

  18. I have 3 Kylie lip kits, Maliboo, Dolce K and Exposed and I love them - they don't come off for the whole day but like you said it can be a pain to take them off when you want to. $29 is good for a lip liner and a lipstick but the customs to ship to the UK is so off putting so I only buy them every few months or so. I bought Kourt K too but hated it! the transfer was awful and left my lips looking patchy but i definitely do recommend her products she puts a lot of effforr into them.

    1. I've been interested in her eyeshadow palettes! Have you tried them out?

  19. I've had a really positive experience with Kylie Lip Kits! Yes, they are at the more pricey end of liquid lipsticks, but I really love mine! I have the shade Dolce K, and I know people have said that there are some differences depending on the shade/pigment, so maybe it's trial and error! A little does go a long way tho, I like to dab a few dots on my lips and then blend in with my finger so it's not too heavy!
