|My Kylie Purchases!|
Like all products, the Kylie Cosmetic products aren’t
without their faults, (although these have been pretty well documented in other
reviews) the stopper lets a little too much product out, the tubes don’t
feel all that full, there was additional customs costs once it arrived in the
UK. But all in all, it’s an aesthetically pleasing, staple beauty range, from
what I can tell. The two products I’ve tried so far have definitely made me want more!
KYLIE LIPKIT – POSIE K
– I love it! I think I meant to order Koko K, but I ordered
Posie K… and, heck, it’s a real beauty! The colour is beautifully rosy &
works great with my fair skin! I’m not sure how I’ll look when I have a tan,
but I’m assuming (as Kylie is tanned) that it’ll look A-Okay. The lip liner
is so creamy, and I’ll definitely be wearing it on it’s own in the future, as
it has just a slightly different colour result to the liquid lipstick – two
looks for the price of one, winner! The liquid lipstick compliments the liner
perfectly so obviously they work really well together. The lasting power is impressive! I
got a good 5 hours out of one application, with a meal involved in there for
good measure. Oily food might break it down a little faster. I think ignoring
the length of time it took to arrive (about 3 weeks, to the UK) and the customs
fee involved (£14 for me), it’s a great product that is definitely worth trying
if you haven’t already. The shade range isn’t great, but I doubt Kylie
will wait long to create more colours for us to enjoy!
All in all,
I give the Kylie Lipkit in Posie K 4.5 out of 5. Give me mooore!
KYLIE GLOSS – LIKE
The second product I tried is Kylie’s gloss, in the shade ‘Like’. First let me mention the
packaging; the tube feels ‘pricey’ – it feels like a premium product, but I
don’t know if that is all psychological, though… The design is sleek and
isn’t all that sticky, but it takes a few applications to suss out how to
control the product coming out and going onto your lips, with the stopper
seemingly missing. The first time I definitely put too much one and it felt
uncomfortable. After that I felt like I was being instinctively more light-handed
with it, and it didn’t seem to be a problem from then on. This colour was okay – Although I love brown shades for lips, I felt a little bit too much like I had fudge sauce on
my lips. I think I’ll try a pinker and a deeper brown next time!
all, I’d give it 3.5 out of 5, but I think this would definitely go up if I
tried a more suitable colour for me.
