Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit - Review & Swatches - Candy K

This is one of the most exciting blog posts I've written in my year and a half of blogging. We've all seen the Instagram posts of Kylie Cosmetics products wether it be photos or mini tutorials. No matter how hard you try, you can't get away from the hype and so, I finally cracked and made an order. Before I disappoint some of you, I just want to mention that I only picked up two lip kits and one is a gift for my bestie Danielle. I ordered Candy K for myself which I have tested and Dulce K for Dani. I really hope you enjoy this post... I'm so excited!
The lip kits contain one Liquid Lipstick and one Lip Liner. They both feel very high quality and heavier than most lip products. Great for travel.
Price - £22.52 per kit
Texture - Mixed
Finish - Gorgeous pigmented lip products
Shade - Candy K - Warm pinky nude

What they say
The #KylieCosmetics LipKit is your secret weapon to create the perfect 'Kylie Lip.' Each Lip Kit comes with a Matte Liquid Lipstick and matching Lip Liner.
This ultra-long wearing lip liner has a creamy texture that glides across the lips for a very easy and comfortable application. The Lip Liner sharpens easily in most standard sized sharpeners - just make sure your sharpener is not dull! 
The Liquid Matte Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry your lips out.

Key claims
- Lip liner matches liquid lipstick
- Long lasting formulas
- Intense pigmentation
- Moisturising ingredients
- Easy application
- Smooth texture

What is it
This is a duo of lip liner and liquid lipstick. Both products have high pigmentation and good colour pay off. They are both the same shade so they work beautiful when worn together. 
Suitable for all skin types.





The lip liner
I really like the liner however it is very similar to others I've tried. It has a nice edge which makes it very easy to line the lips. The liner has a creamy texture and is so comfortable to wear. It's nothing revolutionary but it's a nice addition to my collection.
If you're looking for a cheaper alternative the GOSH Lip Liner in Nougat Crisp is very similar.

The liquid lipstick
This liquid lipstick is quite different from ones I already own. It has a much thinner texture, almost watery, but still opaque. It's very easy to apply to the lips and one coat is all you need. You cannot tell you're wearing lipstick, it's so lightweight and comfortable. It's definitely my favourite LL formula yet. After a couple minutes it's fully dry to a matte finish.
A cheaper alternative would be something like Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lip in Serenity or NYX Lip Lingerie in Bedroom Flirt.

Pros
- Easy application
- Good coverage
- Soft textures
- Nice pinky nude shade
- Travel friendly
- Non drying

Cons
- On my fair skin Candy K looks quite dark and I was hoping for it to be lighter
- The liquid lipstick has quite a strong sweet scent (some people may not like that)

Summary
Am I glad I purchased the lip kit? Yes. Will I purchase others? Probably not. I really like this lip kit but I'm not sure I would get much use out of the other colours. They now sell the lip liners and liquid lipsticks separately which is great for people who aren't 100% on them. I'm definitely impressed with the packaging, quality and formulas. Well done Kylie!
