Kylie Lip kits Shade – Kristen & Jenner Review, Photo & Swatches
When I had heard that Kylie Jenner (step-sister of Kim Kardashian) is launching a cosmetic line, I expected cliché products with a premium price tag. But, I was pleasantly surprised with the color range her lip kits had. It was not the cliché pinks and red, in fact she experimented in nudes, browns and pinks. Obviously, over the years she had added lots of color to the lip kit range. The beauty enthusiast in me was really excited and desperate to try them, but unfortunately they are not directly available in India. But they do ship to India with an added price. So 3 months back, when the website was offering free shipping I decided to buy few products. It took around 20 days for the products to reach me. Also, I had to pay 41% as custom duty.
I bought 2 of Kylie’s lip kits; each Lip Kit comes with a lip pencil and liquid lipstick. I got the shade Kristen (named after Kris Jenner, her mother) and Posie K.
Let’s see what the website says about these Lip kits
This ultra-long wearing lip liner has a creamy texture that glides across the lips for a very easy and comfortable application. The Lip Liner sharpens easily in most standard sized sharpeners – just make sure your sharpener is not dull!
Matte Liquid Lipstick
The Matte Liquid Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry your lips out.
These liquid lipsticks come in the typical liquid lipstick type packaging, which are very sturdy. But these do feel rich and heavy, giving a classy vibe.
Kyle This is a cool mid tone berry. This shade will wash out medium and deeper skin tones. I am not a fan of this shade as it washes me out ☹
First, I would always suggest that one apply a good lip balm before using this lipstick as for some this can be extremely drying. I didn’t feel that but some of my friends found it a bit too drying. The lip liner and the lipstick have the exact same color, which helps in giving the shade, a deeper look. The lip liner is soft and extremely pigmented, and since it’s so soft it tends to finish really quickly.
About the liquid lipsticks: these feel very light once you apply on the lips, also it is high intensity pigmentation and gives full coverage, and hence only one swipe is what one needs. They immediately dry in few seconds leaving bold matte finish. I liked the fact that these lipsticks do not settle on the fine lines. I rather feel that it is quite comfortable on my lips, not at all heavily drying. These lipsticks do not transfer at all. And they easily last for a good 6-7hrs even after having several meals and drinking water.
Things I loved about these lip kits
- Kristen is a gorgeous and unique shade

Would I recommend?
If you are a Kylie fan, yes. But, I have heard colorpop lipsticks work the same and are 3 times cheaper.
