Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Tulip.

It’s pretty surreal to me that after dreaming of owning an Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick for years now, I can finally say that the day has arrived! As far as I’m aware Anastasia was one of the first, if not the first to create the beauty phenomena that is, the liquid lipstick.

A few months ago this beautiful Brand finally launched a UK Website and it’s safe to say that pretty much daily I was checking to see if their iconic liquid lipsticks were in stock. For some bizarre reason hardly anything was available online, it simply said, “coming soon to the UK” and I had almost given up on them ever being stocked. However, at last, the long awaited email notification arrived! I must point out, Anastasia has been available on Beauty Retailers such as Cult Beauty for quite a while, yet the liquid lipstick have never been on there to buy.

However, as soon as I read the email, I was straight on to their website and browsing through the 36 shades available, including the recently launched shades! As we all know, my signature shade is of course, a blue toned 1950s red and I had decided that this was what I was going to go for. The great thing about Anastasia is there is such a wide variety of colours available to suit everyone’s tastes and preferences, from popular nudes to unique lilacs and teal – they have it all!

Eventually, I had narrowed my choices down to either American Doll, described as a, “classic retro red” – basically my dream shade, right? Or Tulip, one of the new colours released which is a, “beet red.” Surprisingly, I decided to choose the latest lipstick released and went with my second choice, Tulip! I thought this red tone looked slightly more unique to my many other reds and ultimately, I definitely think I made the right decision. I’m happy to confirm that the lipstick looks exactly as photographed on the website and it is simply stunning.

At £20, these liquid lipsticks are in the mid to high price range, so sadly I won’t be able to buy one each week, but I know I’m fortunate to have one and yes, it will be cherished. However, as perfect as the product may be, I did have a slight annoyance with the delivery fee. Free shipping is available if you spend over £25 and as the lipstick is £20, chances are if you’re just buying one thing you will have to pay shipping. Of course, I completely understand that not all Brands offer this and that is fine, but having to pay £6.95 for standard shipping, stating 7 – 10 days for delivery is in my opinion, totally unacceptable. There is also an option to pay £10.95 to receive your items in 2 -3 business days.

I really wasn’t happy about paying for such an expensive delivery, so I decided to find the cheapest product available and purchase a pencil sharpener which was £6.00, so I would qualify for free shipping. When I can afford to purchase from Anastasia’s website again, I think I will actually buy two liquid lipsticks instead of one, that way I qualify for free shipping and basically get one of my products for £15. On a positive, my purchase arrived earlier than the date I was give and I was informed by one of my friends that even though I bought from their UK Website, all stock is shipped from the US – hence the high delivery fee.

Ultimately, it was definitely worth spending my money on this beautiful lipstick, the formula is without doubt one of the best liquid lipsticks I’ve used. It dries down matte within seconds, and I actually can’t feel any product on my lips – amazing! However, I do wish they lasted a bit longer, especially on the inside of my lips, although the rest of the lipstick does stay pretty well. There is no scent on the lipstick, which is completely fine with me, although I do usually enjoy the scents, I know not everyone does. The product is a great size and I’m pretty sure this will last me a long time, although it is my current favourite to wear so, I can’t promise anything! I really love the packaging, it is so simple but very elegant and definitely oozes class. One of the best things about Anastasia’s liquid lipsticks is believe it or not – the applicator! I’ve never actually seen one like this before, it’s an oval shape but very flat with a sponge texture, perfect for creating an iconic bold lip.

Overall, shipping aside, I adore this Brand and it definitely lives up to the popularity and hype it receives in the beauty world. The frugal woman inside of me wishes it was slightly cheaper but I can’t really complain when the product is such high quality. I hope to be able to purchase more liquid lipsticks in the future and eventually try out the iconic glow kits!

The Balm Cosmetics Meet Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipstick in Devoted.

As someone who has been obsessed with The Balm Cosmetics ever since discovering The Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter, it is with shock that I admit this is the first product I have ever owned from, let’s face it – basically my dream Makeup Brand!

The Balm is a must buy for any Vintage Girl out there – it’s up there with, Besamé and Benefit Cosmetics – beyond aesthetically appealing with it’s retro, old soul vibe and ultimately – authentic! Therefore, when I finally came to face to face with this beyond gorgeous brand for the first time, I simply had to purchase one of their beautiful products! Thanks to the modern world of technology, I had already discovered their beautiful liquid lipsticks and as this is my favourite beauty product, we all know which item I was going to buy.

After procrastinating between three shades; Devoted, Sentimental and Loyal – I decided to go with my first instinct and chose the original choice, Devoted. This colour is once again,  my signature favourite shade to wear which is a deep, vibrant, blue toned ruby red and I can one hundred percent confirm, this colour does not disappoint! This is the first time I have worn the lipstick and I can honestly say I will probably be applying this all week. The shade looks exactly as advertised and I feel like I’ve stepped out of a 1950s Technicolour Movie.

If you’re not really a red lipstick kinda girl,  you’ll be happy to know that The Balm have just released six, yes, six, (!) new liquid lipstick shades so you now have eighteen colours to choose from! Just promise me one thing, if you do end up buying them all then please, try not to blame me.

When applying the lipstick I noticed a unique mint scent coming from the product and honestly, it was quite refreshing to smell something different! Don’t get me wrong, I adore the sweet ingredients that are often used in lipsticks, but this fragrance further contributes to The Balm’s products standing out and being memorable. Plus, if you don’t like the mint aroma, there’s really no need to be put off from buying them, as it fades once it’s dried!

Furthermore, the packaging is so detailed and unique! I really appreciate when Brands take the time to not only make a good quality product but, also create something beautiful and classy, which you want to have pride of place on your Vanity Table. I think the majority of makeup lovers would agree that The Balm have truly outdone themselves with packaging and they definitely stand out from other Brands. I think the whole concept behind the product is so witty, very eye catching and most importantly – something different!

Cost wise, The Balm Cosmetics products are in the mid price range, with their liquid lipsticks being, £13.49 in stores and £14.99 online – strange, right? I’ve found that it’s usually the other way around, so I don’t really know why this is the case however, there is a silver lining! Superdrug currently have a 3 for 2 on a lot of their Brands in stores, (I’m not sure about online sadly) and The Balm is one of them, so remember that when you’re next browsing.

The only downside I can think of with The Balm Cosmetics is they are not stocked in every Superdrug, I’ve not yet to come across one in my hometown, (holds back the tears) so, if you’re someone who likes to buy beauty products in store only, this could be a problem. However, as I said previously, the products are just like advertised, so fear not! Debenhams also stock The Balm Cosmetics, so if you’re lucky your local store may have one and if not, it’s only a click away online.

I simply can’t emphasize enough how in love I am with this Brand, all of the products are so beautiful and are pretty much works of art and not just the liquid lipsticks – literally every single item! I can assure you when the sad day comes and my liquid lipstick runs out, I will most definitely be keeping the packaging and yes, maybe that’s too much, but for me? I think not. I may have waited years to finally own something from The Balm – but they most definitely met my dream expectations!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan.

As I’ve said many times, pink may be one of my absolute favourite colours and has been for many years, but it’s definitely not one of my go to shades of lipstick to wear. However, this post could shock you all, as I think I may have discovered the perfect pink that I actually… love to wear! Shocking, I know.

A few of you may be thinking, “I’m sure she’s wrote about quite a few pink shades of lipstick” and I’ll agree, to an extent. Although the shades I’ve wrote about have been mostly mauve shades, which although has a pink tint, is overall a different colour. However, this lipstick is definitely the colour in question and one I happen to adore and this post shall tell you why.

I’ve previously tried NYX’S Matte Lip Cream in the shade, “Ibizia” and wrote about this wonderful lipstick and brand in this post published last year. Therefore, when I happened to be browsing through their lipsticks a few weeks ago, (I was of course testing many shades on my hand, so much so that I practically created a rainbow) I came acrossMilan“. I’m surprised I actually picked it up as for the hundredth time, we all know that pink isn’t my must wear shade, although I do like a variety so, for whatever reason I swiped the lipstick on my hand. After trying out what seemed like hundreds of lipsticks on my hand, I was continuously drawn back to Milan and thankfully, I ended up buying it.

At just £5.50, the Soft Matte Lip Cream’s are a pretty great price, although if I could change one thing I do wish the product was a slightly bigger size. However, overall it is definitely worth the money. There are so many different shades in this collection and I especially love how each lipstick is named after a City! Pretty cool huh? The lip wand is also perfect and this is actually the only lipstick I will apply without using my must have lip brush! I think the reason is because not too much product comes out onto the wand therefore making it a lot easier to use in creating the perfect pout.

The soft matte cream formula is slightly different to a liquid lipstick, it dries very quickly but as described, it applies as a cream formula – not liquid. A positive to this is it’s definitely less messy if you happen to sometimes make a bit of a mess like myself. I would say that a applying a few coats of this product is a good idea as it’s not as long lasting as some others. However, for the price it is amazing quality and pretty pigmented.

I absolutely love the smell of the NYX Lip Cream, it’s not too strong and is a beautiful vanilla like scent. Plus, once fully applied it doesn’t even really feel like you have any product on your lips, which is a super bonus as we all know how uncomfortable sticky, flaky lipsticks can be. The packaging is pretty similar but very pretty and as someone who is a huge fan of the added details, I really appreciate the NYX Logo with the little heart. I also think it’s a wonderful idea how each product is the colour of the shade you purchase.

Therefore, as you can tell – this is without doubt my favourite pink lipstick I own, I think it’s due to the unique cool tone shade that NYX have created. I can’t think of another one like it and it’s definitely not easy coming up with variations when there are so many amazing colours out there. It’s not a baby pink or hot pink, it’s truly unique!

Have you got any NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and if so, which is your favourite?

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks in Beso and Patina.

Before I start reviewing these amazing liquid lipsticks, I have to thank my gorgeous Sophie for introducing me to Stila by buying these two products for me for my Birthday! Stila first came to my attention a few weeks previously when I saw Sophie frequently wear one of their liquid lipsticks called, “Patina” and she couldn’t say enough positive things about it – that’s when I knew it was a must have purchase!

The shades I received from Sophie was her favourite, “Patina” and my go to colour, (red – what else?), “Beso” and I was instantly in love with them. I’m especially glad that one of the shades she bought me was, “Patina” as I doubt I would have bought it for myself as I would assume it wouldn’t suit me. Surprisingly – I was so wrong! Patina is a beautiful mauve nude pink, a really unique colour that is bold and such a lovely shade to wear. I can definitely see why it’s Sophie’s favourite and I’m happy to say it’s one of mine too! Beso is a stunning bold true blue red, the ultimate vintage bombshell shade and a must have in my old soul opinion. I really don’t think you can go wrong with red lipstick, it’s just such a classic and timeless look.

There are so many liquid lipsticks out there now and sadly so many have a lot of flaws and don’t quite match the hype they are given. However, I can without a doubt say that the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are the best I have ever used! They stay on for hours and do not feeling uncomfortable or drying on your lips as the formula includes avocado oil and Vitamin E. 

Not only is the product beautiful but the packaging is absolutely stunning, featuring a gorgeous bold gold colour for the wand and the font. At £16, the lipsticks are at the mid price range but in my opinion are definitely worth the money. The product is a decent size so should last quite a while and you only need a small amount of lipstick because it’s so pigmented. Furthermore, the wand brush is flexible which makes it a lot easier to apply the lipstick and contour the shape of your lips. In my opinion, this is incredibly important for a liquid lipstick to have as a hard wand brush can make it extremely hard to apply nicely if you don’t own a lipstick brush.

It’s fascinating applying the lipstick and watching it dry from a glossy formula to a matte finish in a matter of seconds! Unlike some liquid lipsticks this dries completely, staying incredibly well and not rubbing off easily like some others sadly do. I absolutely adore these lipsticks and can’t wait to try more from their collection, I can’t thank Sophie enough for introducing me to Stila!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Sangre.

I’ve liked Kat Von D ever since I remember watching her on LA Ink and seeing her amazing tattoo creations and wonderful talent. Therefore, I may have skipped a heartbeat when I found out that her make up line was finally coming to the UK! Although currently only available in one of the stores in London, you can still buy online from the Debenhams website so everything is still pretty great.

I’ve heard such good things about her brand, especially her liquid lipsticks therefore, I was thrilled to receive my first one for my Birthday a few weeks ago. The shade I have is a beautiful bold red called Santa Sangre and is described on Kat’s website as being the colour of poison apple – loving the Snow White reference! Once again, as I’ve mentioned in many of my lipstick reviews, this colour is perfect for all the vintage lovers out there – red is a must!

As soon as I started to apply the lipstick I realized what the hype about the products was all about, it brushed on so smoothly! The shade was truly pigmented, very vibrant and dried ever so quickly. Plus, it didn’t feel uncomfortable on my lips as previous cheaper liquid lipsticks have which shows that a quality product is definitely worth the price. I’ve been wearing the product all day and I must admit, it has stayed on pretty well and doesn’t look crackly, I could get away with not reapplying it. However, it is described as lasting 24 hours and as much as I love the lipstick I definitely don’t see that happening.

At £16 I was pleasantly surprised by the price tag as I assumed it would be a lot more, it’s in the mid range money wise and I definitely think it’s worth it. The packaging is absolutely stunning and such a statement design, you’d know it was Kat Von D’s without reading the label! The lipsticks are also pretty big so you get a lot of product and won’t have to buy one every week – unless it’s another colour of course! I absolutely adore the beautiful bold pattern with the black and silver contrasting one another, you’re not just paying for the lipstick, you’re paying for the stunning design.

Not only is this product a must have but Kat also has stick lipsticks called,  “Studded Kiss” which come in a stunning iconic case – I’ve not seen anything like it before! They are priced at £16, have the iconic KVD Logo printed into the lipstick and I definitely hope to try one out and review it for you all in the future! What I also love about her Brand is she really covers a huge variety of shades, ranging from your every day pink or nude to a green or blue! It is also Vegan and Cruelty Free which is absolutely wonderful.

Makeup Revolution London Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in Keep Crying For You.

Today for the first time, I tried one of the many new lipsticks that I recently purchased; Make Up Revolution’s Lip Lacquer in Keep Crying For You. This Brand is exclusive to Superdrug and thanks to one of my closest friends who introduced me to them, I finally tried it  and I’m so happy that I did!

As soon as I saw the liquid lipsticks I knew that I had to try them, I think these products are currently the huge hype in the make up world and I have to agree, I’m very much in love with them – it’s such a cool idea! What’s even better about Makeup Revolution is it’s so affordable, I bought this lipstick for just £3! For such a bargain I definitely couldn’t miss out on trying one and I decided to go for a hot pink, something that stands out and is very feminine.

Obviously for the product being so cheap I wasn’t expecting wonders, however, I was personally surprised overall with how much I liked it. When I started to apply the lipstick I noticed it did look pretty streaky and I did feel slightly worried. However, the formula dried down very quickly and looked completely pigmented and bold. I did use my lip brush for the base coat of my lipstick, then the wand for the overall production which I found very good for shaping the colour.

I first applied the lipstick this morning and after having lunch a few hours later I did notice that a fair amount of the product had been removed from my lips. To be fair, there was still a lot of lipstick present, but as I like my  lipstick to be extremely prominent, I did reapply another coat for the photos. I would recommend if wearing this all day then you should definitely take it with you as it isn’t hugely long lasting, but that is to be expected for such a cheap price.

I adore the overall look of the lipstick, it really does dry very quickly and changes into a bold matte formula. Personally, I do think the lipstick does start to feel slightly drying but with the matte finished I’m not that surprised – a lot of liquid lipsticks can tend to create this overall feel. However, this doesn’t put me off wearing these lipsticks, although it can feel a bit strange it doesn’t really bother me and if it does bother you, then simply apply a lip closs or semi sheer lipstick over it.

The packaging is very much like the Kylie Jenner and Anastasia Beverley Hills liquid lipsticks, it looks just like a lip gloss – but we all know it’s not! The lipstick comes in a gorgeous rose gold packaging which I really love – this seems to be the colour of the moment for sure! Another good thing about this lipstick is when you touch it, the product stays on and does not come off on your fingers, it really is matte.

My conclusion is I will definitely be purchasing more lipsticks from Makeup Revolution and other products too. I think they are very good quality for such a cheap price and they have a huge variety of lipsticks available, so if you’re not into liquid lipsticks then there are four other categories to choose from. I’ve just worked out, that I could buy five of their lipsticks compared to just one mid to high range product which is very appealing!

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Cherry Skies Lipstick.

As I mentioned in my last post, not only did I buy one NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick – I bought two, which couldn’t be anymore different from one another; Pink Lust and Cherry Skies.

Sticking with my favourite shade to wear – red, I decided to try and branch out from the obvious blue tone 1950s classics and went for one that was extremely dark. The lipstick instantly reminded me of a 1920s vampy shade that a femme fatale such as Louise Brooks or Theda Bara would have worn. It was so bold and daring and would definitely stand out, so I decided this was the one to try.

I also thought it would be wise to buy a lip pencil to apply under the liquid lipstick and therefore make it last longer, so I chose the closest shade I could find aptly titled, Dark Red. I only  realized once I’d got home that the lip pencil was a retractable one which, although a great idea, over the years I’ve had many that snapped fairly easily. However, my apprehension was entirely unnecessary as the lip pencil worked wonderfully and didn’t break! So I’d definitely recommend the NYX Mechanical Lip Pencils. It’s refreshing to be able to actually use  a pencil and not be fearful of pressing too much encase it snaps, plus, no sharpener is needed!

When applying the liquid lipstick I soon realized that with this shade and product, less is definitely more! I also learned that it was extremely important for me not to rush and take my time as the colour is so bold and obvious any messes would clearly stand out. As I started to apply the lipstick I actually felt a bit intimidated and anxious as to how it would actually look on me. Before the product dried it was almost black and although I love being bold with lipsticks, I definitely don’t think I’m ready to try something so stand out just yet. I can’t pull it off like Kylie Jenner that’s for sure!

However, as soon as the liquid had transformed into a matte lipstick I was very happy with the shade, it was different but still ultimately a classic vintage colour – just what I aim for! All I really needed was a blunt bob and I could have almost pretended I was a 1920s Flapper, well, maybe not but it’s always nice to have an imagination, right?

I did notice that this shade didn’t seem to last as long as Pink Lust, the lipstick I reviewed in my previous post. The only conclusion I can come up with is because it’s such a bold colour and contrasts so much with my actual lip colour, it must be more noticeable. Either way, this is only the first time I’ve worn this lipstick so I’m sure a bit of patience and practice will help to improve it.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Pink Lust Lipstick.

Today I finally got to try my new NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the shocking fuchsia shade called Pink Lust, which I purchased from Boots for only £6.50! Just recently NYX Cosmetics have opened in stores across the UK and all I can say is, it was definitely worth the wait – there are simply so many items to choose from! It truly is a make up lovers dream.

Ever since my favourite Beauty Blogger, Em aka mypaleskinblog mentioned this brand in her videos I have been so excited to see what all the hype was about and try the products for myself. I’ve previously posted about NYX Cosmetics in another post and true to my word, I’ve bought more products to try! I absolutely love how the shade of the lipstick matches the packaging, it’s so pretty and very pleasing to the eye.

What I love about NYX is the amount of lipstick products they have available, there are so many styles and finishes to choose from! Therefore, I knew as soon as I saw the Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks I had to try them out, especially as I’m slightly obsessed with liquid lipsticks right now. I really love their Soft Matte Lip Cream and as this was an extra pound more, I was hoping this would be even better – and I was not disappointed!

As I’m such a lipstick lover, I’ve been trying to branch out and try different shades, as often I’ll buy a similar colour thinking it’s slightly different and it’s an almost exact match. I decided to go for something that would stand out, be vibrant and a bit edgy and as soon as I saw Pink Lust I knew I had to try it. Like I’ve said many times before, I absolutely love the colour but I only really wear nude or hot pink shades, rarely pale or neon pinks. However, I thought I might as well try a new shade and see if it may change my mind.

As the lipstick is in a liquid formula before it dries, I applied it without a lip brush and just used the wand stick instead. It was easy to use and quickly dried into a matte finish within seconds! The shade is so bold and pigmented and I only needed to put one coat on my lips. I didn’t even have a lip pencil similar to this shade, so I wore it alone and hours later it is still very much intact so I’d say this has lasted very well!

This colour is perfect for anyone who loves a bold shade and of course, the colour pink! Plus, it’s such a vibrant and warm shade to wear for the summer, it definitely brightens up your face. I actually have another Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick so I look forward to sharing that with you all! I can’t wait to try out the other variations of lipsticks NYX have to offer, there are so many shades and amazing creations!

Kylie Lip Kit Part Two.

A month ago I wrote about my first Kylie Lip Kits; Candy, Posie and Mary Jo and since then I decided to order two more shades, 22 and Koko. Today they have arrived and I am very happy with my latest additions!

I ordered 22 and Koko on the 29th March and fifteen days later they arrived, a couple of days longer than my first order but they are delivered all the way from America so I was happy to wait. However, this time my order was subjected to a customs fee of £12, which has frustrated me a lot as I ordered three Lip Kits last time and didn’t recieve any charge. Of course this is nothing to do with Kylie or her products but it has sadly put me off ordering more.

I must say that although I think the quality of the products are amazing, the shades of the lipsticks can be very misleading. With my previous shades, Posie and Candy, I absolutely adored how they looked on Kylie, however  I was slightly disappointed with the colours on me. I felt Posie was a lot darker and not a vibrant super pink like it is on Kylie and Candy was also significantly different. I guess it all depends on your skin tones, luckily I feel the shades Mary Jo and Koko look a lot closer to the colours they are advertised as. I’ve noticed quite a few people have commented about the shades looking different so I’m not the only one who has noticed this.

I decided to buy Koko and 22 because they were very different to previous Lip Kit shades and I was hoping Koko would be a lot lighter on me – and it was! Koko is described as a pale pinky nude and on my lips I think it ironically looks a lot like the shade I thought Candy was, so I’m happy about that and but it’s lighter than Posie and Candy. 22 is a burnt orange shade and although it’s not as vibrant on me as I would like, it’s definitely the shade it is advertised as.

Any of you who follow @kyliecosmetics on Instagram will know about the upcoming metallic metal shades; King, Reign and Heir. Although I won’t be able to buy any of them at this current moment in time, from the swatches Kylie has shared I’d definitely wear Heir, it’s my favourite shade out of the three for sure and I think it would compliment blondes with pale skin.

Speaking of new shades, Kylie has also brought out three nude glosses; Like, Literally and So Cute.  As I’m not really a lip gloss person I’ve yet to purchase any, although if I was to pick my favourite shade I’d choose So Cute. I’m pretty sure So Cute is the lightest shade so from my experience with the Lip Kits, picking this one won’t look too dark on my lips. The irony is, I absolutely love a bold lip colour, but there’s a fine line between just right and too intense. Although I still love the shades Posie and Candy, it is frustrating seeing them look so perfect on Kylie and a different colour on myself.

First photo is me just wearing the lip liner and the second  photo is me wearing the lipstick over the liner.

Apart from the Lip Kit themselves, the other exciting part of ordering from Kylie is receiving the iconic Kylie Cosmetics Postcard. Sadly, for some reason this time I didn’t find one in my box, I don’t know if this was by accident or because it was my second order. However, there’s a different postcard with Kylie’s Glosses and I think I might even prefer that as it is a photo of Kylie from her Glosses music video. If any of you have tried the other shades or glosses then please let me know what you think, I’d love to hear your opinions!

I must thank Kylie for introducing me to liquid lipsticks, I still can’t get over how amazing they are and I can’t wait to try other brands versions too. It’s also so refreshing to see a celebrity use their own products and be so involved in the process. I’m so excited to see the new shades of Lip Kits Kylie releases and continue to watch her brand grow, she’s doing so well and should be very proud of herself!

Kylie Lip Kit.

Probably the most talked about subject in the world of celebrity last year would be Kylie Jenner’s Lips, I think it’s pretty fair to say that they have become an industry in their own right and Kylie has confirmed this by releasing her own cosmetics; Lip Kit by Kylie.

First released in November in three shades; Candy, Dolce and True Brown, the products sold out within minutes and have since been in huge demand. Sadly, I was yet to get my hands on one of them, that is until February 2nd when the kits were restocked and three shades were added; Posie, KoKo and Mary Jo. I’m definitely glad I waited to buy a Kylie Lip Kit as the new shades are definitely more of my preferred choice. However, I’d heard such good things about the products that I was almost apprehensive to try them, worrying they wouldn’t live up to my expectations – trust me, they did!

I’m writing this post on the day my Lip Kits arrived, I ordered three shades; Mary Jo, Candy and Posie on 2nd February and 13 days later they arrived all the way from the United States. I was perfectly happy to wait and overall it really didn’t take that long for International Shipping, obviously if you’re in the United States they are likely to arrive within a few days.

The Lip Kits are packaged extremely well, they have their own separate packaging which is absolutely gorgeous, as well as the outer box they are placed in with foam protection. When you open the box there is a beautiful card with the Kylie Cosmetics Logo on the front and a lovely message from Kylie on the back, you can tell how passionate she is about the kits and it’s really sweet to see how hard she has worked to share them with all of her fans.

When I say these Lip Kits are like no other lipstick I’ve tried, I mean it! It truly is a unique formula and I definitely hope to buy more in the future – KoKo I’m coming for you! Not only do the packages match each shade of the Lip Kit, there is a piece of cardboard within the box which keeps the liquid lipstick and lip pencil separate from one another. The Lip Kit features Kylie’s lovely signature and they are the perfect size for keeping in your handbag or even carrying around with you. However, I doubt you’d really need to apply the Lip Kit as they stay on so well!

When trying the shades on I found it pretty difficult removing each one, which to me is a great thing as who doesn’t want their lipstick to last all day!? Firstly I applied the Lip Pencil, this is definitely the best pencil I’ve used before as it literally just glided on! I’ve had some in the past that can be so hard and very rough on your lips, but this was wonderful to apply. It’s such a great idea that you can purchase the lipstick and lip pencil that are exactly the same shade and they come together, nothings more frustrating when you have a great lipstick but not a lip pencil to match!

After I finished using the lip pencil I applied the liquid lipstick, I usually stay away from glosses as they can be so messy and sticky but this was completely different. I honestly couldn’t believe how quickly it transformed from a glossy lipgloss into a matte lipstick!  It doesn’t feel dry on my lips, it actually feels like I haven’t got anything on them and I’ve had it on for hours and eaten my lunch and it’s still there. I really can’t wait for Kylie to release more shades and add more cosmetics to her amazing brand.

Although they are currently sold out, follow @kyliecosmetics on Instagram and it will inform you when they are restocked, I really hope Kylie releases some coral and purple shades. Out of the three lipsticks I have I think Mary Jo would be my favourite – I do love my reds! Candy is a beautiful nude brown and Posie is a lovely medium pink, I’d love to try Dolce and True Brown but I don’t think I could pull them off sadly.
