Kylie Jenner's Lip Kit ft. Posie K Review - Are Kylie Cosmetics Worth The Hype?

As an avid watcher of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, including all of their spin off shows, and loyal fan to each of their social media accounts, you can imagine my overwhelming excitement when Kylie Jenner decided to release her own line of lip products. It almost felt like I would one step closer to fulfilling my dream of being a Kardashian if I happened to own even just one of her lip products - sadly for me the entire world seemed to have the same idea, and it isn't until now that I've managed to get my hands on one of her lip kits

I feel so extremely lucky to have been one of the people who managed to purchase a lip kit on the day that Kylie Jenner broke Google Analytics, it felt like a massive achievement and a prize for staying up until gone midnight with my bank card and laptop, hands shaking in a combination of nerves, excitement and anticipation - I could barely enter my shipping details for the adrenaline!

After months of watching tutorials, unboxing videos and reading blogs where people had been kind enough to swatch the colours on their skin, I knew exactly the shade I wanted. Posie K. Some might be surprised by my choice, since Candy K and Koko K still appear to be the all time favourite shades across the globe, but since Summer is on the horizon I wanted a pinker hue with no brown undertones to add to my collection of lip products at home.

When I came home to find my lip kit on the side, I carefully prised open the packaging to at last handle the holy grail of the beauty world, Kylie Jenner's lip kit. I have to admit I was initially a little disappointed that I didn't receive one of the printed cards inside with Kylie's handwriting on, but quickly got over it as I opened up the products.

A deep shade of rosey pink, Posie K was a little darker on my skin than I originally anticipated, but to be fair I am incredibly pale since I've stopped using St Tropez and haven't been on holiday in over a year. If you like cool toned pinks, Posie K is definitely for you. Although the shade is a stronger pink than Candy or Koko K, it's very wearable for both day and night purposes without looking too much.

The product itself smells just as gorgeously sweet as I expected, kind of like marshmallows (although my Mum thinks it smells like cake!) and applies beautifully. The lip liner is highly pigmented. as is the matte liquid lipstick - I adore the fact that one application is enough to get an even, vibrant colour and you don't have to layer up the product to achieve perfection. Once applied the product almost disappears, feeling much lighter than other liquid lipsticks I've tried, and doesn't have that chapped, dry feeling too.

For the ultimate durability test, I took Posie K for a day out in London to join me for my work meetings. I applied the product at 6.30am and headed off to the city. By 12.30pm I could see the inner edge of my lips starting to sort of flake off, which normally would have caused me great stress with other lip products, as it would be a cue to totally reapply your lipstick and avoid the golden rule of not layering liquid lipstick. But I was impressed that Posie K survived 2 coffees and lunch, and only required a quick slick of Vaseline to add a little moisture and return to its smooth, even appearance. By 5.30pm, perhaps due to the application of Vaseline, Posie K had become more of a lip stain - it still looked gorgeous and hadn't smudged though so I'm very happy indeed, and it proves that the product doesn't need to be re applied throughout the day - result!

My tips for anyone considering purchasing a Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit would be:

- Purchase more than one if you can afford it. The high price of shipping to the UK means it's cost effective to bulk up your order, and trust me once you've tried one you'll want them all!
- Keep a lip gloss or Vaseline tin with you at all times to just add a little moisture to your lips throughout the day. So what if your look won't still be matte, the colour is still fab.
- Consider your skin tone before purchasing any lip kits, Kylie's created a gorgeous selection of shades that look beautiful on everyone, but trust me when I say Posie K might look like a lighter pink on your favourite vlogger, but look totally different when you come to apply it personally on your paler skin. 

In my opinion Kylie's lip kits are totally worth the hype, and I will definitely try to purchase some more in the future, I've currently got a craving for 22 and Mary Jo - I'm not too fussed about the lip glosses she's released since there are so many good glosses on the market already, but after watching her recent Snapchat post, Kylie revealed that new lip kit colours are going to be revealed very soon - *insert excited face here*

I hope you enjoyed my post, let me know if you have purchased any of Kylie's lip kits below, particularly 22 - link me to your post, I'd love to see any swatches! I'm hoping to post a makeup look using Posie K very soon, so keep your eyes peeled. 

Until next time..
