So a few weeks ago I ordered some of Kylie Jenners lip products. I've been seeing Kylie's products all over Instagram and YouTube and i have been dying to try them so when i saw they had been restocked i decided to get some. By the time i got on the website there were no lip kits left which sucked, however i did manage to get a lip gloss and metal matte lipstick. And so today i am going to do a quick product review on them for you.
One of the things i love the most about these lip products is the packaging. Each product comes in it's own sleek white box with the signature Kylie drips. I love the fact that the drips on each box corresponds to the colour inside. I know that this is such a small detail but it i love it. Another thing i noticed about these products was the weight. Now i know that sounds strange but the weight of these products is so much heavier than any other lip gloss i own.
Literally and Heir
The first, and my favourite of the two products i got is the Kylie Lip Gloss in Literally. When shopping online i didn't know which colour to get and so i honestly randomly chose Literally because i liked the name, and i am so glad that i chose this colour. Literally is the perfect light brown/nude shade and i absolutely love it. The pigmentation of this lip gloss is insane. When I tried it out for some reason i was expecting it to be sheer but it was so opaque. The lip gloss itself is quite thick, something i didn't really like when i first saw it, but after trying it on the lips i completely changed my mind. I am used to thick lip glosses being sticky but this one wasn't.
The lasting time of this lip gloss is also amazing, i have worn it a few times and it lasts such a long time. Obviously it is a gloss so it does transfer however even after the gloss has dulled the colour itself does not budge which i love. Both of the lip products have a very vanilla cupcake which i love. If you are looking to try a new lip gloss i would definitely recommend this one.
The second product i got was the Kylie Metal Matte Lipstick in Heir. Yet again i wasn't quite sure which one to get of the metal matte lipsticks so i just went with the one i thought looked best on the screen. When i swatched this product on my arm i loved the colour. I don't even know how to explain the colour of this lipstick, it is like a pink/coral shade yet still quite nude with a beautiful golden metal sheen to it. When i tried this on my lips it was a very strange feeling. The lipstick kind of looked like it was flaking towards inside of my lips and you could see a very obvious line on my lips where i applied it, however i think if i layer this over a nude lipstick that problem will be solved easily.
The texture of this product is so nice, it is a creamy product and applies much like the Collection Cream Puff Lip Creams which are some of my favourite lip products. I do love this product and i can see it being one of my favourite lip products of the summer.
Let's Talk Applicators
One of the main things i saw online before ordering these products was the negative reviews on the applicators and so i thought i would show you the applicators and tell you what i think about them.
First off the lip gloss one. The lip gloss applicator is a little brush wand, which i am 100% in love with. I know that the early version of these products had a much longer brush which caused problems however this newer brush is so good. I love the fact that it is a brush because it helps you be so much more precise when applying the lip gloss, which with these glosses you need because they are so pigmented. I also love the brush because it picks up the perfect amount of product so you aren't wasting loads of product when taking it in and out of the tube.
The applicator for the metal matte lipstick is pretty much a standard Doe Foot applicator. It is so easy to use when applying the matte lipstick. It is very soft and isn't at all stiff something i think is important when applying matte lipsticks. As you can see the applicator is quite small however i think that, that is a good thing as it is very easy to apply too much of this product.
Ordering from Kylie Cosmetics
Now when ordering from the website the entire process was so easy and straightforward which i loved. It was pretty much a three step process - Choose the products you want, Add them to your basket, Fill in your payment details and it was complete. Obviously you have to choose your country, postcode/zip code ext. But it only takes a few seconds and it is complete.
After ordering your products you get a confirmation email telling you your order has been accepted and then after the order has been processed and the shipping has begun you get another order which gives you a code to track your order which i thought was great. Something i hate is when you order a product but can't track it because obviously ordering from America was going to take some time, but knowing where my order was was great.
On the website it states that additional customs charges can be added depending on your country when the product is delivered to your country. I personally had to pay International Handling Fee's which amounted to £12.52. Now i didn't mind paying these fees however i know that for some people this will put them off so i thought i would let you know.
Every order, from what i can tell online, comes with the Kylie Cosmetics lips card with a message from Kylie on the back which i think is just something nice to have. The products are packaged with two pieces of foam so they don't break and the overall packaging is great.
Literally Lip Gloss- $15/£10.56
Heir Metal Matte Lipstick- $18/£12.67
International Handling Fee- $17.78/£12.52
Overall Cost- $65.70/£46.27
I am completley in love with my Kylie Jenner lip products and I can not wait to use them. I hope you enjoyed this post and if you are thinking about ordering from Kylie Cosmetics i would definetley recommend it. If you want to try just one product I would suggest the lip glosses because they are insanely good quality and feel so nice on the lips!
I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have any questions about the ordering process or the products let me know below!
