I think everyone now has at least tried a Kylie lip kit or at least knows someone that owns one, myself included. I now have six I think lip kits and I’m here to give my honest opinion on them and whether or not I think they’re completely worth the money and the god awful shipping.
Honestly, I don’t. Don’t get me wrong I do really like the lip kits – mainly the liquid lipsticks but I don’t think they’re worth the $29 price or the roughly £15 customs charge you get. I will be purchasing some more of the liquid lipsticks int he future though because at $17 I don’t think that price is too bad, although you can definitely get the same quality for cheaper prices by NYX.
Let me just clear something – I do really like the liquid lipsticks, I’m just not a fan of the lip liners, I think the liners are kind of basic and I honestly prefer my £1 from Primark that I get. You’re definitely paying for the name of the brand and not the product with the lip liners in my opinion but with the lipsticks even though you’re still paying for the name the actual quality of these are great, or at least they are in my opinion.
I love the shades of them and the pigmentation but some of the shades and i have no idea why it’s only with some shades, are extremely drying, so much so that they’re basically unbearable. Someone once tried one of mine at work and had to remove it not long after because they said it felt like sandpaper on their lips, oh and the shade Leo bleeds like a bitch. An absolute massive bitch, even when I used the lip liner with it.
As I said you can definitely get some NYX lipsticks that are very similar in shade, pigmentation and feel for like half the price and no customs BUT the Kylie liquid lipsticks staying power is amazing, some of the best I’ve ever came across. I mean it takes a solid five minutes to remove it from my actual lips at the end of the day with a wet wipe and even then it stains a little. I know that may be a massive flaw to some people but it means you don’t have to worry about it coming off throughout the day – a little tip from me to you is that if you apply a chapstick over the top of the lipstick and then use a wet wipe it comes off so much easier!
Overall I recommend trying them out before buying them if you can, but I don’t recommend the lip liners at all. Definitely try the liquid lipsticks thought because I do love mine, mainly the shade 22 and Leo – despite the bleeding.
