There has been a bit of buzz around this product for quite a while now, and finally we get to see a finished product available to purchase. Naturally, I am talking about the Kylie Lip Kit, which has most likely already sold out. Kylie has been working on this product for two years now and she has released three shades as well as promises of more to come. Keep reading for more details, including swatches and prices as well as dupes.
There are three shades available currently, and they are being sold for $30 each, although already people are selling these much coveted items for ten times the original price. Kylie is famous for her trademark mauve and brown 90's reminiscent lip looks and her three new lip products definitely stay true to that.
Candy K is a very light pink nude shade, it looks very pretty and perfect for both day-to-night looks. I believe all the products dry matte. An inexpensive alternative would be Istanbul by NYX (£5.50), their Soft Matte lip creams make a wonderful dupe to most matte liquid lipsticks. A high-end similar product would be the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in shades like Pure Hollywood or Dusty Rose.
Dolce K is a darker shade than Candy K and more of a true brown-based nude, Dupes for this shade, which I like a lot better than Candy K as I think Dolce K would be flattering on a wider variety of skin tones, are Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina (£16). Stockholm and London (£5.50) from NYX is an alternative too. Matte Lip Paint from Coloured Raine in the shade Sugar ($13.60) looks pretty similar as well. Whirl (£15.50) from MAC would achieve a similar colour in my opinion as well.
Lastly and possibly my favourite out of all of them is True Brown K, this reminds me a lot of Veronica from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Cannes from NYX would also work as a cheaper option as would Tulle ($4.80) from Color Pop.
Overall, I am not all that impressed with her Lip Kit. I think the colours are gorgeous and to be expected judging from Kylie's own makeup evolution, but they are all colours that have been created a hundred times before and for a lot cheaper. There is nothing especially unique about this collection, but time will tell. The formulation might be out of this world, so you don't have to take my word for it. I wasn't too impressed with the packaging either, it could have been a lot cooler and doesn't look like it is worth $30 to me.
In my opinion, NYX Soft Matte lip creams are the best bet for achieving a similar matte look in a 90s colour and they cost a sixth of the price. Can't go wrong really.
