Have you ever wanted something, but decided to wait out and trust the concept of perfect timing to get it? That's exactly how I felt with the Kylie Lipkits. I am a fan of Kylie Jenner, and it's just the most natural thing to be interested in her lipkits as well, since I love love lipsticks ( if that hasn't even been obvious enough with my numerous blog posts haha)!
I've wanted to have one for a while, but knowing how hard it is to get one, I decided to wait for a while and told myself that I could get a dupes instead that would be readily available here in the country. But one morning, I was hanging out a cafe and checking out my Instagram feed, and that's when I saw an account of a reseller, and I went on and contacted her. Turns out, she had the available stocks for the lippie that I wanted, and she lived right near me! After a few minutes, I already met up with her to get my lipkit. Talk about perfect timing! I got it for 2450 pesos - I know it's not cheap at all, and it's something I really splurged for. Deep inside my heart, I knew na hindi ako matatahimik if I didn't get one.
I got the shade 22, and I've been debating whether to get this or the Mary Jo K, but I decided to get this one since it's more of a brick orangey red. I can't really explain what it exactly looks like, and I've never had a lipstick like this shade before. Just like most of my issues with liquid lipstick, there's this issue with dryness since I have dry lips to begin with. There was a time when I went to the mall wearing this lipstick, and after a few hours, I decided to remove it because I didn't like the way it settled on my lips. But then again, I think it's because I didn't properly prep my lips beforehand applying this. It did accentuate the lines on my lips, but that's a pretty normal case for much the matte lipsticks I own. However, on a positive note, there are pretty good things about this lip kit, it is pretty long- wearing and I actually really like the shade alone. However, what I really love about this is the lipliner! It goes on really smoothly, and you could wear it alone!
Overall, I'm not sure if I would recommend this or not. To be honest, given the opportunity and the cash to buy one again, I probably would. There's just this certain feeling of luxury and luck ifever you are able to buy one haha. And of course, it is long wearing and the shades of the lipkits are just really nice though.
However, on a practical note, I have tried better performing liquid lipsticks on a cheaper price which you can buy easily here in the country. Because of that, I think that This lipkit is something you should buy if you really are a fan of Kylie, and is generally in love with the liquid lipstick trend. It all depends if you're willing to try a new liquid lipstick and pay for its price :)
