Kylie Cosmetics Matte Lipsticks and Gloss – Hit or Miss?!

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!

Formula

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.

Wear time

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.

Scent

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!
