Hello, loves! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but since starting my summer internship things have been a little crazy!
Last month, May 5th-6th, Kylie Cosmetics had a buy one get one free sale. Sooooo I decided it was finally time to pull the trigger and pick up my first lip kit! During this sale I ended up getting Maliboo and Ginger. And because the processing took so long they threw in a So Cute gloss for free, so that totally made up for the 2 and a half weeks of processing and shipping!
On May 31st, Kylie Cosmetics Launched 4 more shades to add to the Koko Collection: Doll, Baby Girl, Bunny, and Sugar Plum. The collection is $40 and all the shades are gorgeous for summer! When I found out there was free domestic shipping I was sold!
Overall, I really like the formula of the matte lipsticks. On me, they aren’t very drying and sometimes I forget that I’m wearing a matte lipstick. The only lipstick that is more drying than the rest is Maliboo, but it’s still comfortable. I just make sure I apply a lip balm before wearing it. The formula is very thin and doesn’t take too long to dry down. I also love how pigmented the lipsticks are because I only have to apply one layer.
As far as the lip glosses go, I’m honestly not a huge fan. They are very thick and opaque. Personally, I prefer a thinner and less opaque gloss. So, when I do use the gloss I only use a very tiny amount.
On me, the mattes last several hours without touch-ups. Some of the darker shades get patchy when they wear off or start to wear off in the center of the lips first, so it does look a little funny. But really, that’s my only complaint as far as the mattes go.
For the lip glosses, the wear time is about 2 hours on me. Obviously, this isn’t a long time, but I don’t expect glosses to last long anyways.
Both the mattes and glosses have a very strong vanilla scent, but it does go away after applying.
Overall, the matte liquid lipsticks are a HIT! They are very comfortable, not too drying, and the shade range is so unique. Previously, I loved the ABH and Colour Pop matte liquid lipsticks.
The lip glosses are unfortunately a MISS for me. Like I said, I prefer a thinner formula when it comes to lip gloss.
What are your favorite Kylie Cosmetics lipsticks or products? I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week!
