If you’re like me, you have a strong love/hate relationship with the Kardashian/Jenner family. You HATE that someone is always talking about them, yet you are doing nothing to stop their popularity – considering you’ve (willingly) watched every episode of their TV show, AND you follow them on all social media platforms. Guilty. So when the Kylie Jenner lip kit phenomenon occurred, I couldn’t have rolled my eyes hard enough. I mean, were people really buying a lip product from someone who doesn’t even have her own lips? (Shade intended). To answer that simply, hell yes they were! And as much as I wanted to hate on it, the pictures all looked fabulous.
Being the don’t-knock-it-till-you-try-it person I am, I knew I would eventually cave in and give at least one of her lip kits a try. So I did. And can you guess what happened? The words almost hurt leaving my mouth… I LOVED IT. Okay, there I said it. I loved my Kylie Jenner lip kit from the very second I took it out of the box. But how could this happen? I wanted so badly to hate it and tell all my girls how terrible it was. Except, it wasn’t.
All About the Lip Kit
The first thing I loved about the kit was the lip liner. It was so creamy and easy to apply. It didn’t crumble or bleed, and went on so smooth. When I opened the actual color, I thought it would have some type of funky smell for sure. But nope. Nothing. The liquid lipstick went on just as easy and with just one swipe across my lips, I had amazing pigmentation and coverage. It dried in less than a minute, and again, it was smooth! (Other matte lipsticks I’ve tried have cracked and creased shortly after applying them). I stared at myself in the mirror for a couple minutes in disbelief honestly, and then obviously jumped right on snapchat to send multiple kissy face selfies to Krystal (she loves my snaps, I promise).
Okay, okay – I liked it. But maybe I just got lucky and picked a good color the first time? I needed to thoroughly test this product out before I could say it was the best matte liquid lipstick I had ever used, right? Well, since you insisted, I ordered another. And then another. I’m not even lying. I am now the PROUD owner of close to $200 in Kylie Jenner lip kits. GASP! And you know what, I’m not even ashamed. I know its price can be pretty steep for some people, but I like to rationalize it by saying this: you actually get two products – the lipstick and the lip liner. So average that out, and they’re $15 a piece. Other makeup brands have liners that sell for much more than that! My favorite color at the moment is Posie K, which is dark enough to make a statement, but light enough to pair with the gorgeous Spring weather.
If you’re thinking about trying Kylie’s lip kits, do yourself a favor, GET ONE! You won’t regret it, I promise.
