Sunday Swatches: Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick Swatches + Review + GIVEAWAY!

Sunday 21 August 2016

Hellooooo my loves!

It's been a while since I've uploaded to YouTube so I thought why not upload a swatches video of the Kylie Liquid Lipsticks as I have the mini Birthday Edition set which is super pretty but also super tiny!

This will be a pretty long post as I will be comparing the mini Liquid Lipsticks to the full size and also my previous liquid lipstick post (NYX Lip Lingeries).

I'll also be hosting a giveaway at the end of this post so you can have a chance of winning a Posie K lipkit (lip pencil + liquid lipstick). Read on for the review, swatches video and giveaway details!

Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipsticks Review
Birthday Ediiton set + full size Posie K
Candy K and Koko K mini for comparison
I genuinely struggle to find decent swatches with online makeup brands (Gerard Cosmetics, Huda Beauty etc) and Kylie lipsticks are the same.
What's weird is, everyone's lips look different wearing one shade; for example my friend could wear Dolce K and it would look like a light brown on her, I wear it and it's a cool toned brown, and on a fairer person it would look dark brown.
Either way I've got a darker top lip so I tend to buff a bit of concealer or foundation around the edges of my lips to give it an even base for the colour to show on.

Packaging: The full size original Kylie Matte Liquid comes in a very similar packaging to the NYX Lip lingerie; black lid and clear tube with the drips coming from the lid side. The Birthday Edition has gold instead of black 
You get 3.75ml in a full size Kylie and a mere 0.65ml in the minis (they're so tiny!!).

Colour & Pigmentation: I'd say the pigmentation is at a medium level for a matte liquid lipstick; the texture is definitely thin and almost watery compared to the NYX Lip Lingeries. 
Colour wise, my favourites are: Dolce K, Candy K, Posie K and Kristen.
Least favourites: Koko K because it's too cool toned for my dark lips (have to pat in) and Leo as it applies slightly patchy.

FinishThese don't leave a sticky finish; they dry fully matte. N.B: they do dry darker than when first applied. Once dried to a matte finish, these crack like no ones business on my lips! I mean every line in my lips are defined and the product doesn't reach inside the lines so it just looks awful up close but fine from afar. They do however feel like you have nothing on your lips.

Scent: My most favourite thing about these actually: they smell like marshmallows, love it!

Longevity: I found these wear off faster than the NYX lip lingeries unfortunately (maybe because of the thinner consistency?).
However a friend of mine says she prefers these to the NYX Lip Lingerie as she felt they were too dry for her whereas the Kylie ones don't. So from this I gathered that liquid lipsticks' comfortability are dependant on your lip texture.
I prefer moussey/thicker liquid lipsticks as I feel they are more comfortable and less likely to crack.

Price: The price for both a lip kit (lip pencil + liquid lipstick) and the Birthday Edition set is around £34 (excluding unlucky customs charges). Available at

Overall ratingI'm on the fence about these; I love the shades available, the packaging, love the scent, love that they feel like you're practically wearing nothing. However, the fact they crack on my lips and define every line makes me feel weary of wearing these.
Also, if you're unlucky enough to be hit with a customs charge of around £9-12, it bumps up the price to around £46 which in my head isn't worth it for something that cracks on my lips!
I give it a 3.5 based on the fact that most people I know do get hit with the UK customs charge and also that it's not as long-wearing as I'd hope it to be for the price.


Right, so now that the review is over, it's time to get a chance to win a Posie K lipkit which includes both a lip liner and liquid lipstick.

  1. I love all the shades and they look pretty matte too! Dolce K and Kristen are my fave <3 xx

    1. Thank you! Yeah they're probably the best colours in this pack <3

  2. Candy K is my absolute favorite, it's so pretty!

    1. It definitely is a perfect every day pink for my lip colour, sometimes I mix it with Posie K for extra pretty lips =D

  3. They all such pretty colours but I haven't managed to get my hands on any yet.. :(

    1. Oh no! I hope you've entered the competition, good luck if you have! <3

  4. Whilst much contention was raised about the claims that her wealth was "self-made" (which it wasn't), the bigger question was how this actually happened - and the numbers behind it. Kyliecosmetics
