KENDALL BY KYLIE COSMETiCS NEW COLLECTION FULL REVEAL SWATCHES & DETAILS


Kylie recently revealed her newest Kylie Cosmetics collection set to drop on 26th June 2020, the face of which is none other than supermodel sister Kendall Jenner. The Kendall x Kylie Cosmetics Collection boasts numerous products from eyes, cheeks to lips and a sleek white packaging. There is a distinct 90's Vogue-esque aesthetic which is clean, editorial yet still appealing, echoing the promotional videos that have been splashed all over Kendall and Kylie's respective Instagram accounts. 


There has been some buzz about a Kendall collection since the inception of Kylie's eponymous cosmetics line, she has collaborated with almost every other female family member at this point and consumers speculated whether a Kendall collection could be anticipated as well. Kendall and Kylie share both biological parents Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner and are the closest in age to each other, with Kendall being only a few years older than Kylie. It is possible that Kendall's pre-existing contracts with Estee Lauder for instance prevented her from collaborating with Kylie as a lot of big name beauty brands will not allow their models to represent competitiors. Think when Jamie Oliver was found shopping at Tesco when he is the spokesperson for Sainsbury's. The outrage! The Estee Edit line that Kendall promoted was discontinued shortyly after it was brought to stores, so this might be the first of many collaborations between Kendall and Kylie Cosmetics. 


The Kendall Kylie collection was pushed back a lot according to Kylie's reveal on her Instagram Stories. She describes a lip blush kit which has never been done by this brand before, I personally am not sure what is meant by this. To me, it looks like a standard lip liner and liquid lipstick set that Kylie is known for i.e. the iconic Kylie Lip Kits which was her first ever release and product. My only guess is that this is likely able to use on both the lips and the cheeks for a monochromatic look. The shade looks like a standard 90's brownish pink nude shade. 


Another new product which is part of this range are the three cream face sticks which include Act Natural (cream bronzer), Runway (cream blush) and Spotlight (cream highlight). Kylie explains all three colours are Kendall's perfect shades for every day wear, so if you have similar colouring to Kendall (light to tan) these will likely work for you. 


The cream bronzer Act Natural is a medium warm brown shade, Runway blush is a warm pink shade and Spotlight is a champagne gold highlight. Kylie confirmed that this cream stick formula will be part of her core makeup line and teased that in the coming week following Kendall's collection she will be releasing more cream stick shades that will suit all skin tones, bronzers, blushes and highlight for all! 


One product that interests me is the invisible blotting compact powder, a "mattifying cream powder formula" that can be used with a brush, sponge and even fingers. Kylie shared that Kendall used this powder a lot on set days, and it was a "lifesaver" as Kendall has oily skin and Kylie has noticed her skin becoming more oily lately too. As someone with oily skin myself, this formula intrigues me and sounds like it is designed for on the go use. I will be curious to see reviews of this.  


Keeping with the ediotiral theme the Everything Everywhere Gloss is exactly what it sounds like, a golden gloss that you can put in your eyes, lips, cheeks, anywhere you want. I am probably one of the few people that wasn't a fan of this trend, but for editorial looks and Instagram photos playing with this could be a lot of fun. 


Kendall also has her own tinted version of the High Gloss a lip gloss for "extra shiny and juicy" looking lips, I believe Kylie has other shades available in the High Gloss. Kendall's shade is this beautiful pinky red tinted colour, that reminds me of strawberry popsicle sticks and summertime. 


Here is a swatch of Kendall's High Gloss:


Last but not least is the eyeshadow palette that has 15 shades in total, top row: Model Energy (matte bone shade), November 5 (metallic champagne gold), Twice The Ice (metallic light pink), I'm Telling Mom (orange peach matte) and To The Moon and Back (bright chartreuse shimmer with gold flecks). Second row: Cup of Tea (light pinky brown matte), You're Tiny and Cute (muted soft pink matte), Runs in the Family (turmeric orange matte), Thicker Than Water (neon electric orange matte) and Here Kenny Kenny (lime green shimmer with tiny gold sparkles). Last row: Brunettes do it Best (deep brown matte), Love You Sister (petal pink matte), Loyal (warm medium browm natte), Scorpio Energy (pink with tiny gold sparkles) and Name a More Iconic Duo (pastel purple). 


I actually like the colour story of the eyeshadow palette and the layout, it looks like a great springtime palette to me so I wonder if this was in the pipeline to be released in early spring this year but was pushed back due to the coronavirus. I like that it is half neutral half colourful and think there are a lot of fun atypical shades like the chartreuse, pinks and lilacs which remind me of some of the clothes Kendall wears on her Instagram page. Cool palette, but not something I would get a tonne of use out of


And that is everything I have seen so far. Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. Please let me know yout thoughts on this collection and the products mentioned here in the comments below, do you like the look of anything? Will you buy anything? Are you tempted to buy anything? I have mentioned this before, but I don't picture myself ever buying anything from Kylie Cosmetics, the price is a little up there in comparison to the product in my opinion and with customs and shipping it becomes quite expensive. I also feel over the past year that the hype around this brand has reduced significantly, would you agree? Now, there are so many amazing makeup brands and new cosmetics lines being launched that the spotlight on Kylie Cosmetics seems to be disappearing. I am sure that they will still sell out though! Hope you are all having an amaing weekend. Take care. 

What are your thoughts on Kendall by Kylie Cosmetics?

  1. I think you're right the hype of the brand does seem to be reduced but I definitely think it will all set out. I doubt I will purchase anything but I like the look of the eyeshadow palette, thanks for sharing it.

  3. That eyeshadow palette looks amazing! And I love the look that the Everything Gloss gives you but I don't like it in real life because it does feel sticky!

  4. I loved the preview video for this collection. Kendall is TOO gorgeous! I've never tried any of the Kardashian/Jenner clan beauty products. The Everything Everywhere Gloss is the only thing that sounds appealing to me. A good dupe for Chanel's ombre premiere gloss I suppose. The eyeshadow palette is pretty but I'd prefer the left half of the palette over the right.

  5. Hi Kiran! Great write-up. I've never bought anything from Kylie Cosmetics. You're right, it's quite pricey and I'm a drugstore kind of gal! Lol. I mean...I don't spend more than $15 on mascara tbh.
    I do like the packaging and images they went with. It's very sultry!
