If you are part of the So Versailles squad and you’ve signed up to the newsletter then you’ll know all about my bitter jealousy surrounding Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit, because I didn’t get my hands on the lip kit when it first launched…or the second time she released a batch. But third time lucky I was and now I’m the proud owner of one of the kits – was it worth the ruthless determination to virtually sharpen my elbows? Here goes my Kylie Lip Kit review…
Kylie Lip Kit Review
So after deliberating hard between Candy K and Dolce K, I decided to commit to Candy K as my first introduction to Kylie’s Cosmetics. It didn’t take too long to arrive (10 days) considering overseas shipping and how it often likes to take its time *rolls eyes* and it arrived in a cute box (I expected no less). I opened the box and there was the infamous lip kit box I’d been waiting for, with Kylie’s lips dripping – that moment was a tiny victory for me… that time she dropped a batch, and bitch was ready.

The liquid lipstick does in fact smell like vanilla frosting, which I love so I’m not mad at it and the formula, which I know King Kylie’s been working on, is super light and comfortable on the lips. Some liquid lipsticks can come out very thick or stay sticky on the lips but the lip kits dry fast, they don’t dry out your lips and once applied it stays put all day. The lip kits also come with a liner which is super creamy, easy to apply and matches the liquid lipstick perfectly. Basically, yes it was worth my trigger fingers on the mouse pad, it was worth the lusting after. Kylie did good. Now I just need to get me some more colours…
Keep a close eye for tweets from the @kyliecosmetics account for drop dates and the Kylie Cosmetics website, if you want to cop a colour.
$29 for each kit, UK shipping is an additional $15.
