Like rather a lot of girls in the world, I have become rather disproportionately obsessed with what Kylie Jenner is up to with lipstick. This has meant quite a lot of time has been spent stalking social media and hitting refresh on the constantly sold out Kylie Cosmetics site. After much disappointment (and extortionate customs charges!!), I have finally managed to try out the Kylie Cosmetics Kourt K Kylie Lip Kit . Here’s how I got on! Scroll down for details of a Twitter giveaway.
So as you can see, it’s quite a different look for me, and let’s be honest, if it was easy to buy a Lip Kit, then this probably wouldn’t have been the colour I’d pick. But beggars can’t be chooser when you have been ridiculously caught up in the kind of hype that only the Kardashian Klan could create. I feel I tiny bit ashamed! Luckily (or not so much for my bank account with those blimmin’ extra charges I keep getting stung with) I have 2 more shades on the way, 22 and Mary Jo K, so expect to see those when they (finally) arrive.
unless you have been living under a stone, or more sensibly resisting the hysteria (well done), then you’ll already know that the Kylie Lip Kit consists of a lip liner and a matte liquid lipstick. As this colour is so dark, I had to do few layers to get it even. I think my application skills are lacking a little!!
Kylie Cosmetics Kourt K Kylie Lip Kit Swatch
I drank a cup of tea straight away and not a dot transferred. Impressive! It isn’t the most comfortable of textures. You can definitely feel it and it isn’t that flexible, but in the right colour, I could cope with that. I did find myself biting at it a little during the day, and when I ate, it came off a bit in the centre.
When he saw me after school, Ben called me the mother of death – which I can tell you is a look that becomes more real as it starts to fade in the middle!
Trying to remove it before I went out for the evening was a little bit of a mission. You need an oil and fast movement otherwise you risk staining your whole face. Again, if it was a good colour for me, I could cope.
I won’t ever wear Kylie Cosmetics Kourt K Kylie Lip Kit again, but I still have high hopes for 22 and Mary Jo K. This may be optimistic but you can’t blame a girl for trying!!
Kylie Lip Kit Giveaway
Make sure you are following me on Twitter HERE, as I have 2 Kylie Lip Kits to give away and will be launching that very soon.
Ordering from the site is a much better process if you live in the US as there’s a lower rate of shipping and you won’t run the risk of extra customs charges (I paid £16.11 on one delivery). The kit itself is $29. Kylie has also launched glosses. I am trying to resist.
