KYLIE LIP KITS: MARIE JO K & POSIE K

Hi babes!

I’m so happy. The – one and only – Kylie Jenner lip kits have arrived! Me = happy, happy, happy! You guys cannot believe how I looked forward to this post.

I ordered Mary Jo K and Posie K. Jealous yet? Hahahahah! Any beauty lover goes crazy when they see the word RESTOCK on the Kylie Jenner or Kylie Cosmetics Instagram page. You cannot believe how long I have waited to get these babies in my hands. Every time I tried to get the lip kits, they were sold out or they started selling in the middle of the night here in Belgium. I would do a lot for them but getting up at 2 am at night, hahaha. Nope. Anyway, I got them now so: Let’s get started!

Here they are, my two beauties:

  • Mary Jo K
  • Posie K

When you first look at the packaging, the colors have a totally different look then the lip kits self. They are more dark, not really truthful to the actual coloring. I was still super excited though !

When I swatched the lipsticks, the true colors started to appear. A matte red color and a matte mauve / pinkish color. Let’s be honest here, they look beautiful!

Here’s a picture to show you guys how I look without any lip stick. Good tip: don’t try to make selfies with a 50 mm lens on a camera without a timer … it took me three hours to make selfies. On the most pictures I either had no lips or eyebrows. Haha, so these are the best I could get. Bare with me, okay?

I have a pretty small upper lip that makes it kinda hard to apply any sort of lip liner and lip stick. I did my best to apply them at the best possible way so please be kind.

The first one I’ll be showing you is Mary Jo K. It’s a vibrant red lipstick with blue undertones that will suit both warm and cool skin tones. Who isn’t looking for a universal classic red lipstick? Right, let’s move on.

I started off coloring my lips with the Mary Jo K lip pencil and it applies sooooooooo extremely smooth and nice. I’m already in love with the first kit.

Kylie Cosmetics describes this red as a very ‘true blue red’. I can definitely see why. Love it!

Now, say hello to Posie K. A dusty mauve pink, that is again suitable for any skin tone. Second winner of the day! Can I get a whoop, whoop?
It gives you that pop of color but not in an overwhelming way. Perfect for an everyday look and even a sultry, feminine evening look.

I started off with the Posie K lip liner:

What can I say? I absolutely adore these lip kits. I’m very happy with the choice I made.

The lip liners have a creamy texture which makes it super easy to apply on the lips. If you made a mistake, easy to fix.

The lip sticks are very high pigmented and dry quickly on the lips. If you already have dry lips like mine, I suggest to scrub them first and apply a healing lip balm to give them an extra ‘healthy’ boost. They stay on for a very long time without flaking. I drank and ate to test them out so I’m prettyyyyyy sure about my case.

I removed them with micellair lotion from Avène and I used about two make-up remover pads to get the job done. They remove easily but the color is so intense you need to take your time. I finished off with some Elisabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream to give my lips some extra care after.

Now the price:

I paid $29 USD per lip kit, that’s about € 26. The price is higher than some other products so I would defnitely say it’s more high end than drugstore.
Shipping to Belgium costs $14,95 USD which is about € 13. That’s a lot of money for shipping.
This does NOT include any custom fees. That was € 32,67, about $36 USD.
This makes a grand total of $108,95 USD  or € 97,67 all in.

I know, this was a NOT so fun part but I’ve got a lot of questions about prices.

Is it worth it? That’s for you to decide! I love them and would definitely order again. The lip kits are definitely a must-have for beauty addicts. But the price is a slight bitch.

I hope you liked this review on the Kylie lip kits. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to mail me or leave a comment below.

Love,

Eveline
