After many failed attempts, I fiinnallyy managed to purchase a Kylie Jenner Lip Kit in Candy K. I bought my lip kit through Kylie’s website. I’ll admit it though, I do have her app and I found out there about restock times and dates. There are fan accounts on Instagram and Twitter which post about restock times just incase you don’t fancy paying that £2.99 a month. Great glam tutorials though.
The site does crash so you have to be prepared. I was out for drinks when the restock went live and I used mine and my friends phone to get onto the site. I fully recommend using more than one device to get through to the website. I ignored all messages telling me to ‘wait in line’ or ‘don’t refresh the page’ and my order still went straight through to checkout. The whole order process is so tedious, I don’t understand why Kylie didn’t just open this up as a concession in Sephora or Selfridges etc. Hats off to her though she knows how to create a hype.
The lip kit including delivery cost £32. Which to be fair I think is quite reasonable considering you get a lip liner and lipstick which is similar to what you would pay in MAC. Luckily I didn’t receive any customs charges either. The order took just over 2 weeks to arrive, if it got stopped at customs it would of probably taken about 3 weeks.
I wish you could buy the lip liners separately as I fully rate them. They’re thick, pigmented and creamy unlike MAC pencil liners. This did surprise me as we all know Kylie used MAC Stripdown liner on her lips, so I thought she would of gone for a similar formula. They glide on to the lips really well and you can start up lightly and build it up for a deeper colour.
The liquid lipstick I was a bit sceptical about at first as I heard they were really drying and mattes always make my lips incredibly dry the next day. However, this is a weird one. My lips feel slightly dry when I’m wearing it, because it really is sooo matte your lips have a weird texture to them. For example, when you wear a matte by MAC (I know I keep comparing this to MAC) you can still feel a creamy texture. Where as with this it’s just almost like sandpaper. The strangest thing is, it actually doesn’t dry your lips out one bit. It legit baffles me. I do have slightly cracked lips and the product does settle in the lines making my lips look dryer than they actually are.
I did have to reapply this through the the day, however when you reapply make sure you take all of the product off your lips and fully reapply. I’d recommend carrying make up wipes with you as this lipstick does not budge off easily! If you make a mistake or smudge when applying you’re gonna have a bit of a mare as its not something you can just wipe off with your finger. Take your time applying!
The only criticism I have to the lip kit is about the design. The liquid lipstick doesn’t have a stopper (like you know when you take your lipgloss out and it makes that pop sound, yeah well like there’s basically no pop sound) which means your brush gets product all over it and if you knock the tube over it spills out.
Would I repurchase? Other colours – yes. This same shade – probably not. This looks like it’ll last a while anyway and by the time I come to repurchase there will most likely be so many other cheaper alternatives on the market.
