Can I get a hell yeah for 12 hour wear, cool packaging, lush colours, and a scent that’s good enough to eat? Uh hell yeah. Kylie Cosmetics matte liquid lipstick and lip liner in shade Candy K gives me the biggest ‘hell yeah’.
I waited, poised over my laptop clutching my bank card a good 15 minutes before the restock. I was determined to get what I wanted and god did I get it. I ordered two lip kits, one for me and one for my sister in Dolce K. I am sooo overjoyed with them, they sure have lived up to expectations, and I feel an addiction coming along.
The service was excellent, seeing as my babies were coming all the way from the USA I assumed it would be weeks until they arrived, when actually they turned up unexpected just over a week later. Plus they came with a cute note from Kylie herself – even though it’s photocopied and I know she definitely does not have the slightest clue who I am, but it still felt like I was getting a gift from an old friend.
I was worried that seeing as I wasn’t able to try the shades on my skin, that Candy K wouldn’t suit my skin tone. I spent ages re watching Carli Bybel’s lip kit swatch video just to be 100% sure on the one I wanted (which was all of them but hey ho) but I have to say I have not been let down and the colour suits me perfectly. However if you don’t listen to anything I say at least listen to this:
If you are stuck on what colour to buy – watch a swatch video done by someone with the same skin tone as you.
I have quite naturally tanned skin and dark hair – similar to that of Carli Bybel in the swatch video, whereas my sister is very fair and blonde. We both tried on each other’s lip kits and hated them. The colours washed us out completely and weren’t a patch on the ones we had chosen. Thankfully, Candy K is the perfect shade for me, and whilst I wish I could pull off everything like the gorgeous Kylie (all though I don’t think even she can pull of sky blue but that’s besides the point…) the dark sexy tones of Dolce K are not my forte.
The product smells good enough to eat – like cake mix, it’s sooo delicious. The formula is light weight and super long lasting. I wore it to a party the other day, applied it at around 7pm and even though I had washed my face at the end of the night, I woke up the next morning and my lips still looked fab. I don’t know if this is a majorly good thing, because then I found that I got some spots around my lips – but oh well. This is the price we must pay for such a swell product.
I do think that you really are paying for the label and there are so many dupes available out there. But if you’re a label girl like me then this won’t matter, I hate to say it but I am often blinded by the name rather than the product…
Let me know if you have tried any of the other shades or any good dupes you know of.
