Hi loves! I’m super excited about today’s post. Partly because I barely post about beauty on this blog and its one of my passions, but also because I was completely floored by this product! I have been avoiding buying Kylie Cosmetics for some time now. I see her snapchats all the time about new shades, highlighters, and eyeshadows. I suppose I just assumed they wouldn’t be the highest quality product and I didn’t really understand the hype about them. Wow, was I wrong! I finally decided to find out what the fuss was all about and bought my first liquid matte lipstick from Kylie Cosmetics. Here is my full review of what I got!
A little black box was sitting at the base of my doorstep and I knew it was my Kylie Cosmetics order. The box was absolutely adorable inside, with the logo and the iconic drips at the top. I love the all black look with the pop of silver text and white drips. Of course, it came with an adorable thank you note with the image we know so well of the lips. The only thing with the box I was a bit disappointed by was the way the lipstick was wrapped and placed in the box. Everything from the card, to the plastic wrap, to my shipping information just seemed to be thrown in the box. I realize they are probably mass producing these boxes, but even some cute wrapping paper to fill up the box a little more and keep the product safe would have been more appealing (to me anyways).
The packaging of the actual product was absolutely beautiful. This was one aspect of my purchase I was most impressed by. This is a collaboration between Kylie and her sister Khloe, hence the rose gold packaging. The white box with the rose gold lettering is to die for and I love how they repeated the same color over the entirety of the bottle. It’s beautiful how the color of the lipstick shows through for the font and the drips at the top. It’s very unique and something I haven’t seen before when it comes to liquid lipsticks. The shade is called “Gorg” and I’d describe it as a mix of berry and maroon. It isn’t full on maroon since it has a very magenta undertone. I didn’t know Kylie was this good with packaging and colors, so props to her and her team!
Here is what the lipstick looks like when applied. I’m a huge fan of this and can’t wait to wear it during the Christmas season! It applied very easily and felt pretty light on my skin. Something very different about her lipsticks too is that they smell SO good! I wasn’t expecting so much of a sweet aroma, even though liquid lipstick sometimes have a specific scent. One thing to look out for with this shade specifically is that it stains a lot. While it was pretty easy to wipe off it left a highlighter pink color, especially on my arm where I swatched it. A little color is always expected to be left over when you use dark shades like this but I was shocked it was so dang bright! Overall, I am very impressed with Kylie Cosmetics and I’m interested to check out more of her products, especially the eyeshadows! Let me know if you’ve ever bought anything from Kylie Cosmetics and what your first impressions were! Until next time loves! xx
