new in: kylie cosmetics - dolce k
Excited? Me? Absolutely. This has been a very long time coming. Anyone who knows me is well aware of my Kardashian obsession. I love the family, love the show, love their style. That love extends to the Jenner sisters as well. Over the last couple of years...Kylie has become a serious style icon. Oh, and she has nabbed headlines for her plumped pout. That inspired the reality starlet to create her very own line of lip products. Since their release, the Kylie Lip Kits have been selling out over and over again. Honestly? I never thought that I would get my hands on one. Thankfully, I did. It took twenty minutes of hitting refresh and another ten waiting for my order to process. But....finally....finally....Dolce K was ordered.
It arrived late last week. And my excitement level went through the roof. I could not wait to open up the box and start swatching. Everything about the packaging was perfect. It came in an ultra glam cardboard box (white with a black drip pattern down the side) with the words KYLIE printed inside. Then there was a cute little card with a pre-printed note from Kylie Jenner. And of course, the Kylie Lip Kit in Dolce K. The actual lip kit box came wrapped in foam to prevent any damage. So smart! I loved the attention to detail with the packaging. It really made this purchase feel special.
Inside the Kylie Lip Kit was the Dolce K Lip Liner and Matte Liquid Lipstick. Again, the packaging was fantastic. It was super luxurious. The lip liner is fairly standard but had a beautiful silver Kylie signature printed along the side. The liquid lipstick had that gorgeous drip effect coming off of the cap and the Kylie signature. These are both super pretty and definitely need to be displayed!
So....how did the products actually hold up? Did they live up to the hype? Were they worth the money? Yes. Yes. Yes. I was blown away by this lip kit. The colour itself is gorgeous (though Dolce K is pretty dark for me....I wanted something that was super Kardashian inspired). The quality is amazing (the lip liner is buttery smooth and the liquid lipstick is ultra pigmented). It even smells good! (I actually made my husband smell the lipstick. He says it smells like berry yogurt.)
The best thing about the Kylie Lip Kit? How long it lasts. No joke, this stuff did not budge. I kissed my husband, did a cardio workout, drank water, ate food, and went about my day. It didn't transfer or come off at all. I was seriously shocked. It felt amazing to know my lipstick looked good - without having to touch up. Overall, I was so beyond impressed with this product. Everything from the packaging to the quality blew me away.
Have you tried anything from Kylie Cosmetics?
