Kylie Cosmetics 'Spice' Lip Set Holiday Bundle Collection 2017 Review

Kylie Cosmetics 'Spice' Lip Set Holiday Bundle Collection 2017 Review

After posting about the Kylie Cosmetics Sugar lip set the other day, today's post will be the final instalment in my five part Holiday Bundle review series. Last, but definitely not least, today I'm taking a closer look at the Spice lip set, and I'm excited to share with you my honest opinions on the products inside.

An assortment of 5 different lip products, the Spice lip set is basically the ultimate selection of holiday shades. Unlike Sugar, the Spice lip set is a sultry combination of deep red shades that literally scream festive. Perfect for evening wear and, of course, Christmas day, this gorgeous mix of lip products includes warm red shades in a variety of intensities, so there's something to wear for all moods, whether you're feeling jolly or not!

Packaged in a gorgeous little green and white gift box, like the emerald green cosmetic bag, this lip set is so festive in an alternative way. The green packaging beautifully contrasts with the red hue of the products creating a holly-esque feel.

The Spice lip set includes the following shades:

Juniper - A shimmer wine burgundy lip gloss.
Hollyberry - A deepened rich raspberry matte liquid lipstick.
Cinnamon - A warm terracotta brown lip gloss.
Goals - A soft strawberry velvet liquid lipstick.
Clove - A deepened rosewood matte liquid lipstick.

I've actually got two favourites from this set, both in different finishes. First up is Goals, it's a really soft, feminine shade that's a gorgeous strawberry colour without all the punch of Red Velvet. It's ideal for days when you want the glamour of a red lipstick, but aren't feeling quite so bold. The other is Cinnamon, the terracotta brown gloss. It's so pigmented, non-sticky and just has a beautiful full coverage finish to it that really does last. When worn all day I only had to reapply after lunch - which is absolutely fine by me!

The only matte liquid lipstick, Clove, is a beautiful shade but much runnier than any of the previous matte lip kits I've owned. I know that the darker shades are a little more translucent than the lighter ones, but until owning this colour I'd never had to worry about going over my lips twice with any of the kits. I had to do a second coat of Clove to get the colour even and not look patchy. It's not a deal breaker, but definitely worth noting about Kylie's dark matte lip kits.

As for the velvet lipstick, Hollyberry, it's another win for Kylie's velvet finish! The pigment is so strong, it only needed one coat - a little of this shade goes a very long way indeed. It's a gorgeous hue that will look amazing with a gold smokey eye for an evening event - it may even be my New Year's Eve lipstick of choice!

Finally there's Juniper, the shimmer burgundy gloss, and I have to say I'm a little disappointed with this one. This ironically was the one I was most excited about by how it looked in the packaging. In the tube it's got a really beautiful red metallic sheen to it, but when applied it almost loses all of its glamour and shine. It's actually way more subtle than I expected, especially when you consider how deeply coloured the Cinnamon gloss is. I envisaged bold metallic shiny lips, but what I got was a soft glittery red glow - still very pretty, but not what I thought it'd be, it's definitely wearable during the day and not the blingy red party lip gloss of my dreams.

Overall I love the Spice set and don't regret buying it at all. It's got a beautiful selection of festive shades that I'll enjoy wearing through into 2018, but I have to be honest and say that the Sugar set is unexpectedly my favourite of the two.

Let me know what your favourite product was amidst the collection in the comments below! If I had to choose between Goals and Cinnamon, I think Goals would just about win!

Until next time..
