You all know the hype – the famous lip kits created and produced by Kylie Kardashian. Admittedly, when word got out about the lip kits some time since last year in the US, I was quite curious about them. I initially thought it was some kind of marketing strategy (which actually worked very well!) to always have them soldout. But why do they need that much marketing when Kylie is already a celebrity in her own right and an already famous media influencer in the first place?
Personally, I’m a fan of the Kardashians and have been watching their reality show since it came out. Yes, they may have their crazy moments (hello, Kim’s disastrous wedding and the Caitlyn Jenner saga), but they’re all fun to watch. My favorite would have to be Kourtney though. I don’t know, but I like her face, her style and her personality. Another thing to love are their perfectly made-up faces. I think they made “smokey eyes” and “false lashes” become the norm – and for a beauty girl like me, I’m an instant fan!
So let me get on with it, my thoughts on the world’s most coveted liquid matte lipsticks. And just because I’m into natural and nude lips lately, the shades I got were Koko K and Dolce K. Also, I only have the liquid matte lipsticks, without the lipliners in the same shades, so my review would be solely based on these two items, okay? By the way, these two shades are always soldout – both from the website and from resellers.
Koko K is described in as pale pink, while Dolce K is described as deep beige nude. Some people claim that the shades of Kylie’s lipsticks vary on different skin tones, and I very much agree to that. Because upon searching for photos on the web, I found that when I apply them on me, they appear different both from the tube and from other girls’ lips. However, despite being that, they are both flattering on different skin tones.
Upon application, the liquid lipstick is very wet and glossy – but it quickly dries up to a matte finish after about 5 seconds. They kinda remind me of the NYX Xtreme Lip Creams, but without the plastic smell, because these smell like candy which is great. They also dry up in a matte texture like the MAC Pro Longwear Lipcremes, without being too clingy on the lips. They are also moisturizing despite being matte, which my lips love. Definitely not like the other matte liquid lipsticks out in the market today – which probably explains the pricy tag.
Of the two shades, my favorite is Dolce K because it’s one of the most flattering nude shades on me so far. It’s my new MLBB (my-lips-but-better) lippie. Koko K is a nice color, but for me, it requires some extra TLC upon application, because it goes into the little cracks of my lips unflatteringly. I had apply it twice to get the nice effect. Both can stay on my lips for about 4-5 hours, and can even withstand my eating some crackers in-between meals. It will definitely smudge after eating though, so better to apply a fresh coat after.
Overall, I think I got my money’s worth. I will probably have Dolce K in my purse for days from now and that’s a good thing.
