After contemplating for too long whether I needed a Kylie Lip Kit, I finally give in. Posie K is now in my possession and its the matte lipstick I’ve always wanted.
I have to admit, I did well to resist for as long as I did! After seeing so many reviews and well, these products are pretty much everywhere I decided that enough was enough. I had to see what this fuss is about and whether paying $29 and a customs charge I may add was worth it.
This was quite an impulsive buy for me, I had no idea they were on sale till I checked twitter and within a few minutes I picked Posie K. Mainly because its one I recognised but I just felt this shade was something totally different to what I currently own.
So the shipping didn’t take too long, I had to pay a £11.97 customs charge so overall it took about 16 days to arrive, not bad for America. The Lip Kit came packaged with the box with the thank you message. I did like this touch and I love the packaging on this especially the signature and the falling liquid.
So what is this Kylie Lip Kit? Each box comes with a matte liquid lipstick and a matching lip liner. Posie K is a mauve pink but once applied, it does have a purple tone to it.
After trying NYX lip creams I can definitely see the similarity with these but I felt this matte lipstick still lasted longer. If you don’t like that dry feel then maybe matte isn’t for you but this definitely didn’t put me off, its one of the creamiest I’ve tried actually.
The liner is really creamy and paired with the lipstick, its long wearing and overall quite comfortable. My lips didn’t feel too dry or crumbly like I know some mattes do after a while.
The pigment on this is amazing too, just one swipe I’m wearing on these two pictures! The only off putting part for this would definitely be the customs charge, I know a lot of bloggers have mentioned this so I was prepared but I definitely think Kylie Cosmetics should cater for international orders more.
I’d buy more from Kylie Jenner‘s range if the shipping (custom) was better.
Overall, I’m glad I took the plunge and I’m so pleased I love the shade and the wear of it. The liner looks great on its own too and I think I found the perfect match with Posie K! I still love my other mattes like Revlon and NYX but if you want to indulge, try one!
Have you tried Kylie Cosmetics?
