Here is my review of one of the Kylie Lip Kits and all three glosses! Find out what I found to be the positives and negatives of each product plus a few other products that I like to pair the Kylie ones with.
Candy K Lip Kit
What it Includes: Lip liner and liquid matte lipstick
My thoughts: The original lip kit color and my favorite of all! Everything you've heard about this lip-stick laying on thin and drying completely is 100% true. I love the deep rosie nude tone because it works well with my skin color and complements my blush.
The only discrepancy I have, as with any matte lipstick, is that your lips become dry and can causing cracking in the actual lipstick. I have gotten around this by applying a lot of Carmex chapstick prior to the lipstick.
All of the packaging stayed true to the Kylie brand and aesthetic, which I can really appreciate. Everything looks very professional. The drip design is consistent in all aspects from the mailing box to the actual tube of lipstick/lipgloss.
What it includes: Single gloss
My thoughts: At first I thought this shade was going to be too dark, but after wearing it, I found that it blended really well with my lip color. It doesn't look like it's just sitting on your lips. This shade is the perfect complement to the Candy K lip kit if you are looking for a glossier finish because it is a bit deeper and rosy.
What's Included: Single gloss
My thoughts: This shade is slightly lighter than Like, which I find to be better for more casual use. I occasionally layer this shade with a more saturated lip color like NYX colors.
So Cute Gloss
What's included: Single gloss
My thoughts: I thought that this shade was going to be the easiest to wear and therefor y favorite, but I was surprised by something. The shade is so light that it sometimes looks to milky without a base. I started applying a nude Revlon lipstick first and then adding the lip gloss to give it a richer look!
On The Lip Kit: The tip is soft and the gloss goes on smoothly. Matte lipsticks tend to dry out you lips so definitely use chapstick! The shades seem to look different on everyone, so think carefully about what you think will look best on you.
On the Lip Goss: The lip glosses are great, but you have to have patience to draw in the lines. The brush is not my favorite because it is similar to a nail polish brush, but it still works well. Precision is key with the glosses, but I do love the shades!
