I finally gave in to the hype. After months of watching and reading Kylie Cosmetics (The brand of lip products created by Kylie Jenner, for those who have managed not to hear about it yet…) Lip Kit reviews and stalking her snapchat, Instagram, etc. I decided to bite the bullet and attempt to order two Lip Kits which I felt I could justify buying due to them being colours I wear often.
Originally I was intending to buy Candy K and either Koko K or Posie K. However, due to the insane rate that Kylie’s Kits sell out, I wasn’t able to grab Koko or Posie, but I did manage to bag Candy K and 22 – which was a colour I also really liked and didn’t own anything similar to (see, well justified, right?!…)
As I said above, in the end, I ordered Candy K and 22. I’ve tried to order from Kylie Cosmetics before, but without luck. This time, I set up an account prior to the re-stock date and time, and this helped with getting through the process quickly – so I would recommend trying this if you haven’t already and aren’t having any luck getting the products you want. Although at the minute, Kylie seems to always have a number of the kits, etc. continuously stocked up; typically after I’d struggled through my order! So it may be lot easier to place an order at the moment…
So for delivery, my confirmation email and the site said it should take up to 3-5 days for shipping information, and 10-15 days (I think, I vaguely remember) shipping time. Both were true to detail and mine arrived in the UK within the minimum of 10 days! Unfortunately I was hit with a customs fee. I had to pay around £15 when collecting from the post office. It seems to be a bit hit and miss with as and when people are people charged customs for their products, which can seem a bit unfair on those who are picked out to be charged!
I also loved the little card that came with it, a nice touch from Kylie!
Upon first swatching the Lip Kits, I see that the colour in the tube is quite different from what the colour on the box depicts. Candy K came out looking slightly more brown at first but dried to a dark mauve shade, which is super-wearable for me! 22 looked a lot darker in the tube than I expected, and when swatched the colour seemed a bit odd… However I give it chance and once it dried it turned into the lovely burnt orange-red that Kylie has been sporting all over Snapchat and Instagram.
Overall, I’m impressed so far! I’m happy with the colours I picked, and maybe in the future I’ll pick up some more, as I know I’d like to try the glosses now that she has created gloss formulas for the popular Lip Kit shades!
