Kylie Cosmetics 'Red Velvet' Holiday Bundle Collection 2017 - Velvet Lip Kit Review

Kylie Jenner Cosmetics Red Velvet Liquid Velvet Lip Kit Review

I previously posted at the start of blogmas that my go-to red lipstick of the month was going to be MAC's Ruby Woo, but since receiving my Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Bundle in the post, I'm afraid MAC has some serious competition in the form of Kylie's 'Red Velvet' Velvet Lip Kit.

In terms of the colour, Red Velvet is the most vibrant, sumptuous red I've ever seen. It's bright, bold and really a holly berry-esque hue. The liner literally glides on with its creamy application - none of that relining going on with this lippie, it's one swipe perfection!

Like all of Kylie's lip kits it has that deliciously sweet scent to it, but I kind of think it would've been a cool idea to change the scent for the holiday collection - a peppermint, gingerbread or cinnamon scent might have given them a bit of a twist.

As for the liquid lipstick itself, I think I'm a total convert to the velvet finish lip kits now, and I never thought I'd say that! I love the matte kits, and have been a fan of them since they were released, their long-lasting, non transferable colour was so impressive that nothing compared. But Kylie has raised the bar yet again! The velvet kits have all of the pigment, staying power and beautiful shades, but with the added comfort of a creamy velvet finish. Plus the colour is opaque, you don't have to build it up like some of the darker lip kits, which can be a little watery. I love that the velvet kits literally feel like you're not wearing any product, because they're so light, and their creamy finish is very moisturising. Which is my only criticism of the matte kits, which after a day of wear can feel quite dry.

Honestly I am hand on heart astounded by how this lipstick didn't shift all day, I applied it at 7.30am before work, at lunch, had multiple coffees and drinks and by the time I arrived back home at 6pm it was still perfectly in place. No need to reapply, fix smudged outlines, no bleeding into the skin, just bold red lips. Are these kits mistletoe proof? Probably not, you will have to be careful not to smudge them on coffee cups and what not, as their velvet finish doesn't set quite like the matte kits, but it won't stop me obsessing over them!

What's your go to lipstick finish? Leave me a comment below!

Until next time..
