KKW By Kylie Cosmetics

“I have too many nude lip shades” — says no one ever!

This lip kit is nothing new… it’s been around for over two months now, but in case you were still debating on getting this kit, hopefully this will help you make that final decision!

If you are a total lipstick junkie, then you might be wondering if you really need 4 more nude lip shades? Well, let’s break it down and see if this is really worth the buck.

Cost

Total cost for this lip kit-  including 4 different nude shades- is $45 USD. Which means you are getting each shade for $11.25 each. Now, comparing that price to lipsticks or creme lipsticks that you can get at Sephora, Ulta or MAC… the only thing that is comparable would be brands along the lines of NYX or makeup sold at the drugstore. Since I am a lover of all nude lip shades, $45 for 4 shades seems extremely reasonable to me! I do think that if you love nudes, and if you will use all the shades in the kit, it is definitely worth the buck!

Packaging

The packaging is SO cute. I know not everyone cares about the packaging… but if I saw something super cute and the product was just O.K., I feel obligated to have it. The packaging is sleek, and I just LOVE it. After two months, I still have all the lipsticks in the original packaging… what more can I say?

Formula

Out of 10 stars, I would give these an 8. Don’t get me wrong… I LOVE it, but I just prefer something that is long lasting and does not require re-application. However, since this is a ‘creme’ formula, I wasn’t necessarily expecting this to last all day & night. When you are wearing these, I would recommend either lining your lips or wearing a lip liner underneath so your lips don’t completely get lost with the rest of your face. I also found that when I did apply a lip liner all over my lips prior, the longevity of the lipstick was much longer than the contrary. What I do love most about these lipsticks is how moisturizing they are! They really do not dry your lips out (unlike what I experienced with other Kylie Lip Kits), that’s definitely a pro in my books!

Overall

Overall, I highly recommend this kit if you are a NUDE enthusiast! If you love matte lipsticks and don’t tend to wear anything else- this is NOT for you! But, if you don’t really care for matte lipsticks or don’t mind reapplying throughout the day- this kit is a must have! Although some of the shades are a little too light for me (especially in the summer), I love layering them on top of other shades or applying gloss over top to darken it… either way, you can always make it work 😉
