This year, since Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner had been launched, people all over the world have been going gaga over her lip kits! And just this August, Kylie has launched her limited edition Birthday Makeup Collection that contains 8 different cosmetics!
It was said that every single item in this limited-edition collection is infused with real gold, the product is slightly pricier than her usual items. Most of the new releases have never been sold before by Kylie Cosmetics, but the gloss, matte metal lipstick, and Lip Kit are all $1 more than usual.
We all know that her products are very expensive and not to mention, hard to obtain for they are always out-of-stock (especially the limited editions that get sold out in a blink of an eye!), I am lucky to get my hands on to the Kylie Lip Kit in Leo and Kylie Metal Matte Lipstick in Gold!
First, I'll be reviewing the Kylie Lip Kit in Leo
As we all know, this shade is part of Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Edition, which expectedly, is also one of the first items to get sold out! People thought that they can no longer buy it for it was gone forever but Kylie Jenner surprised us and brought it back and you've got to love her for it! She definitely outdid herself and restocked it yet again.
This time though, the packaging that we got here is no longer the same black & gold combo packaging but the usual one with the white background. Nevertheless, this shade is still hard to get a hold of!
Kylie Cosmetics Australia Lip Kit Contains:
1 Matte Liquid Lipstick (0.11 fl oz./oz. liq / 3.25 ml) and 1 Pencil Lip Liner (net wt./ poids net .03 oz/ 1.0g)
Leo is a bold burgundy shade which most beauty enthusiasts call as the perfect fall shade! I personally don't wear dark lipsticks that much but when I do, it makes me look so fierce like I can intimidate anyone in the world! Hahaha!
Kylie Lip Kit in Leo has a quality that is better than I expected! The lip liner is easy to use as it glides and applies smoothly on the edge of my lips without smudging while the matte liquid lipstick has opaque pigmentation and has a very long-lasting formula which stays on for 6 hours in my case! It smells nice too like sweet vanilla doughnut! I had to wipe my lips with makeup remover several times to completely remove them! Wow!
The reason why it exceeded my expectation is because I've heard from other makeup enthusiasts and bloggers that Kylie liquid lipsticks are very similar with Colourpop's matte liquid lipsticks' formulation which to some people's disappointment, are drying on the lips and crumbles like liquid powder after an hour of wearing. It may be a case of getting a bad batch, I ain't sure, but this Lip Kit that I have tried has great quality! If all the other lip kits are this great, I wouldn't mind the price that much anymore! Hehe! Well, I'm still surprised to be honest!
Kylie Lip Kit i Leo is being sold for $30 in the US plus the shipping fee. Here i the Philippines, it is priced for Php1,950-Php3,000 depending on who the seller is. It sucks that imported items get way more expensive here nut yeah well, that is just the way it is!
Now here's Kylie Metal Matte Lipstick in Lord
Kylie Jenner has a taste for all things gold. If you are just like us, you will definitely adore this golden lipstick that screams "Hail Cleopatra!!!" once you wear it on your lips!
A girl can never have enough gold, so when everyone saw the Lord Metal Lip Kit, they went ballistic!!! Lord is a "true metallic gold, " compared to the King K Metal Lip Kit, which is a "soft, metallic gold" with deeper, bronzy undertones.
Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Edition Metal Matte Lipstick in Lord is a gold-infused cosmetic that gives an opaque metallic matte finish in just 1-2 swipes!
In fairness, it isn't drying and applies easily on the lips. It smells vanilla sweet-ish too like the other Kylie liquid lipsticks. I rarely see a golden lipstick that has a pigmentation this good! I love it!
Now my only problem is, where and when shall I wear this?
