Over the past year, nineteen-year-old television personality Kylie Jenner has built up her company Kylie Cosmetics, which contains some of the most sought after products in the industry.  One of the more well-known products is her Kylie Lip Kit, which is a $32 two-piece ensemble containing a lip liner and a liquid lipstick.  Some customers are very satisfied with the product, however some complain that it doesn’t live up to all the hype it receives.  Below, I’ve broken down the best and worst parts of the Kylie Lip Kit.



Packaging// I had no complaints in this department.  The kit came inside a small, beautifully designed box, which came inside a larger black box containing the receipt and the instructions. The smaller box arrives in a variety of different packaging colors, ranging from gold to white to beige.  It has an image of a pair of lips with a grill on it (the company’s logo), along with additional information on the back.


Color// Again, I was truly satisfied with the color and pigmentation. In total, there are twenty-one different matte colors.  I ordered Leo, a dark maroon, and Candy K, a pinky beige color.  The colors were the perfect mix of sophisticated yet outgoing, and they didn’t fade or become bleak.


Durability// Although the results were mostly positive, I did have one complaint with the durability: cracking.  After a couple hours, the applied lipstick will become somewhat fragile and begin to crack.  It isn’t automatically noticeable, but if you accidentally rub your lips it might begin to chip away.

Final thoughts// Although there are couple issues and it’s a bit pricy, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good, solid lipwear, whether it's for an everyday look or for a special occasion.
