Honest Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick Review + Swatches | Posie K & Candy K

These lip kits seemed like some sort of unobtainable object for a while, I never even attempted to order one because I just assumed it impossible. Then for my birthday my roommate showed up with that signature black and white drippy box for me.. Thank you C.C. if you're reading this!

I'll begin by saying that yes, they are worth the hype. For starters the price is very good for the product, you can buy a liquid lipstick and liner from MAC and it cost much more (same with Anastasia), and it be half the quality of these. The lipliner is smooth and easy to use, where as I find MAC liner sort of hard and you have to really press down into your lips to get the product on. The liquid lipsticks themselves go on very smooth, they do not dry too quickly so that you can't even finish your application, but they eventually dry to a gorgeous matte shade a bit darker than when you first apply it. It's very comfortable and not stiff, it also does not dry out your lips. I think the only negative I have to say is you'll want to exfoliate your lips first because, as will all matte lipsticks, it shows all the cracks and bumps. The lasting power of this product is insane, I wore them out on a night at a concert with lots of talking (and drinking) and I got home at night to see it had hardly budged. Even the swatches I took for the last photo remain on my skin after showering. 

Posie K - Despite the packaging making this product look like a deep plum colour it's actually a pleasant vibrant pink with purpley tones. It's kind of hard to explain but the photos are taken in natural lighting and show the true colour you see when on.  

Candy K - Slightly more brown than when you see it on a tan Kylie Jenner, it's a gorgeous pink/nude that looks great on all skin tones. It's my favourite colour from her collection and it's easy to wear day and night. If you're looking for a but more pink than brown/nude Koko K is the alternative (and probably my next purchase).
