Elizabeth Taylor once said, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together.” Now that is the mantra to life from an honest (and iconic) woman — quite an accurate one I might add. In times of doubt or distress, the perfect shade of lipstick can really turn a woman’s day around. Well dressed lips complete your overall look and can become a head turner if done right. I hate to leave the house without dabbing some color on my pout, and I’d hate for you to go through that, too! Hand in hand with my trusted mascara, a beautiful shade of lipstick (or two) is always an essential in my makeup bag.
So, what have I been loving on lately? The same thing the entire world has been going gaga over: Kylie Lip Kit by Kylie Jenner. Available exclusively on kyliecosmetics.com, every set of lips has the potential to transform into the perfect ‘Kylie Lip.’ It’s been all the craze in lipstick land lately, and I can attest to why it’s so sizzling hot.
These two shades are exactly what I’ve been looking for — perfect for everyday wear whether I’m going for a natural or bold look. Paired with just a few swipes of mascara or a full glam look, the colors go with everything. Dolce K is a beautiful deep beige nude and Ginger is a rich terracotta brown. Ginger definitely has the upper hand though in my book!
THE CLAIM, IN A NUTSHELL.
Ultra-long wearing. Creamy texture. Intense pigment. Easy application. Silky feel. Does not dry out lips. So, does it live up to its claim?
Packaged in clean, simple and bold kits — just as expected from KJ — these are sensational. With just one smooth and easy application, Kylie’s lip kit withstood a 10-hour workday (even after lunch) without drying out or rubbing off! I even put it to the test on my arm swatch. Ran it under water…nothing. Rubbed it…nothing. A little soap, water and rubbing action…you guessed it, nothing. Talk about ultra-long wearing.
The product itself is very high quality. A smooth and truly silky application — both the lip liner and matte liquid lipstick — with a hint of sweet scent. It dries quickly and leaves your pout looking beautiful! And pigments? Definitely a 10/10 and with just one swipe. Check it out for yourself (top to bottom: Ginger & Dolce K).
And with 15 shades (not counting the birthday exclusives), there is a lip kit made for everyone! The downside? The $8.95 shipping charge (within the U.S.) that you can’t get around and how quickly these products sell out. The upside is delivery is fairly quick and restocks typically happen weekly. So if you’re quick enough you might just get an order in. The price is also SUPER reasonable — a lip kit runs for just $29. I’m hoping to snag a couple more shades within the next few weeks; I’m thinking True Brown K and Mary Jo K. My makeup bag is one happy camper, and my pout is more than ecstatic.
