The time has come. I have waited months to try out Kylie Jenner Cosmetics but was often put off by the delivery fee and reviews from other bloggers. But finally, on Christmas day, I opened two presents containing an eyeshadow palette, a lipstick and lip liner kit, and the birthday edition mini lip kit.
I have heard a variety of comments (bad and good) about Kylie’s makeup line. Some saying that they are bad quality and not worth the price; others saying the makeup is long lasting and the lipsticks don’t dry out your lips (which is the main goal when buying lipstick). So when I opened these kits I was so eager to try them all out (eager being an understatement – literally took off my freshly applied face of makeup just to put it all on again with my new makeup).
The first product was Kylie Jenner’s The Bronze Palette. Not going to lie, I have used this palette everyday I want to make up on since Christmas. I can’t get enough of it; the colours are perfect for a subtle, everyday eye look. The eyeshadows blend so well together and the pigment (oh my god jasper – the first one) = perfect for that inner eye highlight; I’ve even used it as a general highlight on my face. I would definitely recommend this eyeshadow palette, especially for those who like the natural makeup look.
Price: $42 = £33.47
The second product is the Kylie Lip Kit in the colour Maliboo. Nude colours are honestly my favourite simply because you can wear them on any occasion. I’ve heard that Maliboo doesn’t suit everyone? I have yet to see someone who doesn’t suit it but it’s just a warning! The kit comes with a lip liner in the same colour as well which, for me, justifies buying it for some unknown reason. Anyway, I found the lip liner super easy to apply and incredibly smooth which was fantastic. The lipstick is also great; however, I wouldn’t apply more than one layer because I feel that it ends up looking cakey. It wears off a bit when drinking and eating, but I kind of expected that so it wasn’t much of a worry. Apart from that, it does last a long time. My problem when buying matte lipsticks is that they often dry my lips out and at the end of the day my lips look horrible (not a good look) and I regret wearing it. While Maliboo and other colours (I assume) didn’t last the whole day, it lasted longer than past lipsticks I’ve used which is a plus.
Price: $29 = £23.11
Here’s a swatch of my lip kit:
The Kylie Jenner Birthday edition is a kit of mini matte lipsticks which are great for taking with you when travelling. I found the actual packaging of the lipsticks quite flimsy – the lid often comes loose which gets annoying but it doesn’t fall apart or anything so I can probably get past that. The actually lipsticks themselves are great – they are so easily applied and the colour lasts ages (less so when eating and drinking as said earlier). This kit comes with 6 different colours mixing from red, pink and nude. I would also only apply one layer when using these for the same reason as the Lip Kit because otherwise, it won’t look as smooth. The colours (from left to right) are Leo, Exposed, Koko K, Dolce K, Candy K and Kristen.

Honestly, I love these kits – you may agree/disagree but I think they are high quality and not too expensive. If you’ve been umming and arring about buying some of these then my advice is ‘treat yourself’; they are well worth it and last ages (as long as you don’t go crazy).
