Kylie’s lip kits have been a major success! The lip kits have been restocked four times and every time they sell out even quicker. I was able to get my hands on 5 out of 7 lip kits on February 14th. I can still remember the adrenaline running through my blood! I had been obsessing all week, literally all week, about the restock of the Kylie cosmetics lip kits. I visited the website several times a day, and would constantly refresh it to see if the lip kits were back in stock yet. Finally, Kylie dropped a clue by saying the restock was occurring within a week, and later posted on her app the exact day and time. Restock would occur at 9:00 am (PST) / 12:00pm (EST). I watched the clock turn 12:00 pm (EST) and my fingers couldn’t move fast enough! I successfully added all shades to my shopping cart by 12:03 pm. Then, I was inputting my shipping information when I was alerted that Koko K was out of stock!!! It went out of stock in three minutes!!! I repeat three minutes!!!
About a week later I received my 5 lip kits: Candy K, Dolce K, Posie K, True Brown K, and Mary Jo K. I set up a session with makeup artist, Cindy Lo from Gorgeous by Cindy, to really test out the beauty and quality of the lip kits. I love makeup, but in all actuality I am not so good at applying it to myself or anyone else for that matter. Any time I have a special event, I go to Cindy. I’m always extremely pleased by the way she does my makeup. She understands exactly what to do with my complexion and takes her time perfecting it. For this project I asked her to give me a look that would compliment every lip kit. She proceeded to work her magic by applying a classic wing smokey eye, amazing brows, and a perfect contour & highlight.
Before meeting with Cindy, I wore the lip kits to work and school to test how long they last and how comfortable they were. I must say that the lip kits are very long lasting, and there is minimal retouching needed throughout the day. However, the cold weather has been drying out my lips and it’s visible underneath the lipstick. I realize I need to invest in a lip primer. Also, I learned from Cindy that it’s important to fill in at least 80 percent of your lips with the lip liner, and then apply the lipstick on top. This makes the lipstick last longer and remain smooth.
After trying on all shades, I must say I absolutely love them all! The colors are so beautiful and versatile. You can wear them any day to any occasion. I was really interested on what Cindy had to say since she is exposed to so many different makeup brands on a daily basis. She was impressed by the quality of the lip kits and agreed that the colors were absolutely gorgeous. She also liked how smoothly the lip liners were on application.
In the latest restock I was able to complete the collection with “Koko K” and “22”. The lip kits have been shipped and I expect to receive them this week. I am very excited to try on these new colors!
