The most trending member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan to date has always been Kim Kardashian, but there is a young 19 year old protegee looking to steal her crown, Kylie Jenner. Kylie’s lips have been the talk of social media for over the past year, with her pumped up pout being the envy of most women. She has undoubtedly had lip filler injections to achieve her full lips, and even though I totally disagree with anyone having lip injections at such a young age, she has started a trend.
For those who don’t want to go under the needle, there are an array lip products designed to give a full, plumper lip. I’ve never had any problems with having big lips, its comes with the black heritage, but I was intrigued as to what the fuss was about over the Kylie Lip Kits that sold out worldwide in 24 hours and made her an astonishing $2 million in one day!
I had been on the waiting list for the Lip Kit for over 8 months, the collection started off as 3 shades and now showcases 11 so I was over the moon to receive my long awaiting product when it landed on my door mat this week, all the way from the US. There are a few copies circulating on eBay so be cautious if they are coming from China! I usually go for red lips on nights out, but I opted for a deep purple tone, Kourtney K. The kit comes with a lip pencil and matching liquid lipstick. The texture is silky smooth, and the lipstick glides on with ease. Its slightly glossy at first, but the pigment is so full and deep giving a very dramatic, vibrant colour and coverage. After a few seconds the lipstick dries to a matte finish.
I have never worn a lipstick that has literally lasted all day; eating, drinking and chatting away throughout the day, the lipstick doesn’t budge! I didn’t need to top it up once, which is perfect for nights out on the town! The only downside is that the lipstick stains due to having such a high pigment. I went to bed with purple lips and had to scrub them the next day and use lots of Carmex to soften them. So be aware that if your kissing your fella or smudge your lips on items of clothing it can be very difficult to get off.
My verdict on this product is outstanding for colour, coverage and definitely gave my lips a fuller pout. Just make sure you invest in some very good make up remover to take it off!
