2016 is the year we saw the creation of the Lip Kits. Kylie Jenner is probably one of the most influential teens we've ever come across, whether that's a good thing or not is your own opinion. One thing you cannot argue with is the power she can have on the younger generation of today. From seeing her grow up on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, everyone has witnessed the transformation into the beautiful woman she is. Which brings me to probably her most talked about feature, the lips. With no true telling if she began having lip fillers, it was almost perfect for her to come out with her own Lip products.
Being a fan of KUWTK, I've always enjoyed this family and all of their successes. I was excited to see how her new Lip Kits would turn out, almost every single one selling out pretty quick, you'd be a lucky one if you got your hands on one. I didn't race to get one to begin with, but on June 6th i was scrolling through twitter in which i came across Kylie tweeting about a re-stock of the Matte Liquid Lipstick, so i went for it. Not thinking i would be able to get one, i manage to purchase it pretty quick, they obviously prepared for the mass of buyers this time around which i can appreciate.
Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits cost just under £20 for both the Lip Liner and Liquid Lipstick. Which is a pretty damn decent price. To be honest, i struggle to fork out £15 for a MAC Lipstick so this was a big step for me, I love a good bargain, so I rarely spend over a couple of quid for a Lip product. I was ready to join the hype. With shipping to the UK for just over £10, it came to a total of £30.59. I read from multiple posts that some people had to pay Custom charges too, I was one of those unlucky ones. Just under £12 I paid to receive my Lip Kit, I wasn't the happiest but I was prepared to pay the price.
Upon opening the box, i was greeted to a lovely little note from Kylie herself, which is a great little touch, i know a lot of her fans appreciate little things like that. It was packaged nice and safely which i was glad to see no spillage or damage to the Lip products. The Matte Liquid Lipstick product itself had quite a weight to it which i didn't expect, i was pretty impressed with the quality of both items to be honest, you could see there was effort made in making the best it could possibly be.
Onto the products themselves, The Lip Pencil glided so smoothly onto my lips i couldn't believe how smooth it was, and its pigmentation was perfect, if i was a pro i'd have been able to have outline my lips in one go. Lets face it, i'm not a pro at all haha. The Liquid Lipstick was just as good, i really didn't need to use much to cover my lips, the pigmentation in this product is fantastic. For the price you're paying for that single product, you'll get so much use out of it, it's quite unbelievable. Am i being over the top? I don't think i am, I truly believe this is one of the best lip products I've used in a very long time.

Overall, I am super impressed with the Kylie Lip Kits. The price is a little daunting at first but they're the perfect duo. With long lasting power and such a beautiful shade i am excited to literally use the crap out of them. I'm hoping that they will soon collaborate with a UK Retailer so the postage and custom costs aren't as steep as they were. Without that, £20 for a Lip Liner and Lipstick is pretty damn amazing, i would buy them ALL.
Have you got your hands on one yet? Or are you not so into the hype?
