My love for bags and shoes will never disappear, but I’ve recently become very interested in makeup. If you check my browser history it’s basically all cosmetics + beauty pages – from makeup to skin care and everything in between. I think maybe it’s a coming of age thing; like, moisturizing my face and neck is now a real thing every night! I’d say I come from a family of good genes but the extra little help won’t hurt.
So, there really are many products I can talk about; that I plan on writing about really, but I’d like to start with one that I’ve recently laid my hands on.
I’m sure most of you have heard of Kylie Jenner and her famous Lip Kits – well, on #BlackFriday this year I caved and splurged a bit. I mean, who does that? I’ve never even seen her product in real life, and I still managed to buy a box full of products!
I’m not sure what really brought on this sudden need for these products but the urge was real. I just HAD to find out what the big deal was!
But let’s start at the beginning. As all other things, I researched my heart out to figure out when and if there will be any deals for Black Friday on her site. It wasn’t hard to figure out that last years deals were great so the anticipation was that this year would be the same. I browsed her page; probably viewed every single product on there, and made my list of what I’d like to purchase.
Finally, the night before Black Friday arrived and that magical message came through – 40% off all lip products on Kyle Cosmetics! JACKPOT! Lucky for me, the site had saved my selection in my shopping cart so I was able to literally with one click confirm my purchase and put the order through! I was as excited as a child on Christmas. I was finally getting a Kylie Lip Kit!
Now here we are, three weeks later, I am the proud owner of SIX Kylie Cosmetics products! So, what did I buy? Well, here’s the list:
- Koko K Lip Kit
- Koko K Gloss
- Charm Velvet Lip Kit
- Flirtini Matte Lipstick
- Puppy Love Creme Lipstick
- Posie K Velvet Lipstick
First off, the colors I bought are fairly neutral shades with pink tones for the most part. They all look pretty similar, but have different finishes such as the matte, velvet, creme, or gloss.
The lip liner is amazing – it’s very creamy, goes on delicately, and really matches well to the lip stick. The scent at first threw me off a bit, it’s smells like something sweet, something I think I know, but I really can’t put a name to it. After a few times I got used to it and actually craved it a bit? If that makes sense? I guess it smells nice once you get used to it.
Also, in terms of need for reapplication; it’s minimal. I’m able to put it on in the morning and not have to apply till after lunch. And that’s even pushing it because the color stays on your lips for a really long time and the only reason to reapply is to give yourself that fresh look again. Finally, the products do not dry out your lips, aren’t sticky, and don’t crack (like some matte products do). That’s what I’ve found anyways. There may be other reviews out there that have different opinions, and that’s because everyone’s lips are different. But, that’s my honest review.
So, overall ; I am SO happy of this purchase and will definitely be wearing these until I’ve used them all up. I’m actually already planning for what I’ll be restocking next time Kylie Cosmetics has a sale!
A few things to note when planning your purchase:
- Free shipping on US orders over $40
- Free shipping on international orders over $60
- If you sign up for her newsletter/emails you receive a discount code you can use on your purchase
- The Black Friday sales are a great time to buy – I mean, 40% of lips and 30% off face is a steal!
- Follow the Kylie Cosmetics Instagram account to stay up to date on products and promotions! There’s sometimes free shipping deals, or other sales she does.
Generally, now that I’ve tried her products, I see what the hype of about and I’m right there with the other fans. Her products are great, and the price is reasonable as well! If you are interested in any of these and have any questions for me about them, let me know and I’ll do my best to answer!
