The KKW x Kylie Cosmetics is probably one of the most anticipated collabs in the makeup world. I mean who wouldn’t want this collab? It’s freaking Kim K and Kylie! Plus, it’s a new formulation and a new look with the packaging. But is it worth the hype? Is it worth splurging your money with? Is it a game changer?
The lipsticks are inside this beautiful nude pink cardboard box packaging. There are four crème liquid lipstick in this collection and all of them are nude shades. I mean Kim loves to rock nude shades so, this isn’t really a surprise. The container of the lipsticks has frosted look to it unlike the usual Kylie packaging. The drips are still there but the color of the writings and the lid is a nude pink as well. The packaging gets an A+ from me. I freaking love the packaging. Each crème liquid lipstick has 0.11 oz or 3 g of product in them. The set/collection costs $45 which for me is not too expensive considering you get four crème liquid lipsticks. I do not know how much this costs here in the Philippines this was just a gift I received from my boyfriend but I would estimate it to be about 2900-3500 pesos (depending on the shop you’ll get this from) excluding shipping fee. This is not available on the Kylie Cosmetics website but I am still posting this because I bet some online shops still has this and some might be selling this in a ridiculous price. This is a new formulation and its said that the formulation is like a lipstick in liquid form. It is not supposed to be long lasting nor transfer proof.
My excitement for this collab died as soon as I tried these on. It’s not super bad but it’s not blowing my mind either. Kimberly is patchy and streaky. It’s not one swipe full opacity thingy. I personally do not like this shade the most. Maybe because it is too light that’s why it’s like that (usually lighter liquid lipsticks are patchy) but I don’t like it for that reason. And the thing is you can’t really build it up because then it looks like you have too much product on your lips. Kim on the other hand is less patchy and streaky but still I am not living for this shade. I just don’t like how they look when you put on more coats to try and cover the streaks/patchy parts. Kiki is good, it is way better than the first two shades. Kimmie is the best when it comes to pigmentation and maybe that’s because it is the darkest.
They look good when they are put on nicely but as I said if you don’t get it right the first try it’s kind hard to build it up because it looks you have way too much product on your lips. I do not have lip fillers whatsoever so maybe it might act differently on my lips. The shades are too limited, in my opinion. What I mean by that is there is not a shade here that will work for the darker complexions out there. Yes they can make this work with a lip liner underneath but they cannot use this on this own. I just wish the shade colors were more diverse and also I wished they sold this per piece as well. It’s not long wearing. I wore this and drank with a straw and almost all of the lipstick was gone. I had to reapply it as the day went through.
I prefer these to be used on top of a lip liner or even a lipstick. For me its just like a gloss but a more opaque gloss. I could definitely wear Kimmie or Kiki alone but for the Kim and Kimberly I really prefer to wear it with a lip liner underneath.
Overall, I think it’s not really worth it. But I will still use this because it was given to me. If it wasn’t given to me I would sell it or pass it on to a friend. I’m really not loving it as much as I want to love it. It’s not super bad but it’s just average. I prefer her liquid lipsticks more than these crème liquid lipstick. As I’ve said some of the shades are streaky and patchy, it’s not long wearing, not everyone will suit the shades, it’s sold in a set. I would suggest you to pass on to these and just buy her liquid lipsticks or just buy multiple colourpop satin liquid lipsticks if you really don’t like matte liquid lipsticks.
