I get anxious when I have to buy gig tickets, especially for bands that sell out in seconds, but never have I EVER thought in a million years that I would be anxiously pressing refresh on a site to grab some makeup. I mean, I love lipsticks and blushes and all that, but...really?
Well, never say never, as just a few months ago I was one of those desperate people trying to snatch a Kylie Cosmetics lip kit before they became a little more available and well stocked like now.
Maybe I've been living under a rock since, but I haven't noticed any other brand trying to recreate a LIP KIT like Kylie did. Not until last week when I ventured into the isles of my local Superdrug to find this little gem at the Makeup Revolution stand. I was like "yeah, you're coming home with me" and since then I've been wearing it almost every day (or whenever I bother to slap makeup on since the past two days I've been ill).
Colour: Reign - unlike what I imagined from the tube, this is more of a soft peachy pink, rather than a nude-pink, if that makes sense. You can see me wearing it in this post.
The Lip Liner: Easy to apply, quite soft so it could break easily but other than that, it's gorgeous to rock on its own as well.
The Liquid Lipstick: When I first applied it, it reminded me of the Nyx soft matte lip creams as it has a mousse consistency and it feels more airy and light, unlike those wet liquid lipsticks. The main difference is that the payoff is greater so you use less product and get great coverage with one swipe. It blended nicely and didn't leave any visible streaks. It can easily last 4-5 hours on the lips and it doesn't feel drying at all. On the other hand, it does leave a mark behind when you drink from a glass as it doesn't seem to fully dry. It has a slight sticky effect that you can feel only when you press your lips together and let go if that makes any sense. It doesn't bother me personally but it's something to consider.
Kylie Lip Kit Dupe? I would say that the concept is there but the consistency and finish of the products are different so...kind of? This is a great dupe for people who don't want to have dry lips and who also don't want to spend a small fortune to get the Kylie Cosmetics products. I mean, look at that price! You really can't go wrong.
Would I recommend it? Yep! Definitely give it a shot. I also hope that they'll come out with more colours.
