This Kylie Lip Kit in Brown Sugar ($29) was another gift from my cousin's wife (!!!!!!!!). I was floored when I opened the gift, because hello, so expensive huhu :3 And she even got my preferred lip color correctly!
Brown Sugar is, apparently, dubbed as the "nude lipstick for all color". Unlike the other brown shade in her range, True Brown K, Brown Sugar is a lot lighter and warmer. You know when some nude colors lean too cool that you'd get that unflattering gray undertone? This isn't it. It's not muddy either. It's gorgeous, and I love it.
The liquid lipstick comes with a lip liner, which I don't really use (too lazy to sharpen it, tbh). You can also buy the liquid lipstick by itself for $17 — a pretty good deal, if you ask me.
As for the controversial part... Let's be honest the formula isn't as similar to Colourpop.
Have other people been using the same product as I am, or were they just blinded by their hatred towards the Kardashians/Jenners that they'd rather put the product down because of it? Charot joke only please. But no, seriously, the formula of Kylie's liquid lipstick is NOT quite the same as the Colourpop Ultra Matte. The Ultra Mattes are super drying, and the formula is much thicker.
Kylie's liquid lipsticks are thinner in consistency, and not as drying. I mean, of course it's still drying, it is a matte liquid lipstick after all, but it doesn't make my lips feel like it's going to crack/chap any second. I don't think I've ever used a liquid lipstick that didn't dry out my lips. The formula is also very wet, so it was easier for me to fill in my lips, and then fix my mistakes afterwards.
I'm not the person who plays with her lips (or lick it repeatedly) throughout the day, so this stays on pretty long on me. I like how it also does not migrate outside my lip lines (because it's pretty watery, and not paste-like), and it also does not flake at all.
What I don't like about it? No surprises, THE SMELL. It's smells very strongly of sweet vanilla; it's almost sickening. It doesn't really go away, either.
Will I buy another Kylie Lip Kit? Most probably not because I really cannot stand the smell of it! And their customer service is shit (too long story, but in summary: my cousin ordered a lot of lip kits from the website, they didn't deliver the products except for one makeup kit. My cousin tried emailing/calling them, they answered but wasn't very helpful. She opened a dispute via her bank, and was finally granted a refund 6 months later!!!)
So, no, I won't be buying from her brand again, but at least now I know the Kylie's liquid lipsticks are not as bad as people have said!
