Kylie Jenner Posie K Liquid Lipstick & Gloss
Kylie Jenner has become a household name when it comes to Beauty products. The launch of her Lip Kits saw a frenzy of customers snatching up the lip kits in record breaking time. It seems every time she restocks she sells out within minutes, breaking a record from her previous week in sales. What is so special about these lip products? I got my hands on my favourite shade, Posie K, to try the gloss and the liquid lipstick out for you…
I would firstly like to say that whoever did the packaging design for Kylie Cosmetic’s make-up is an absolute genius. Dripping lips coated in her product with the gold grill is so eye catching and dare I say, iconic? Plus it totally gives off Kylie Jenner’s vibe. But we don’t buy a product for the packaging even if it is the first thing we see and the thing that initially draws us in. The colour Posie K is very impressive. It’s a really pretty dusty rose shade that suits absolutely everyone. I have not seen a shade quite like it with most of the other ones I have coming closer to either the brown or hot pink shade so I’m happy I have it in my collection.
The applicator for both the gloss and liquid lipstick are absolutely fine and I have no problems with them. I know what the first launch of the glosses saw a huge torrent of complaints because the applicator was horrid. Kylie Cosmetics seem to have fixed that and the gloss goes on no worries. The second thing I noticed upon opening the box after the applicator is how strong the vanilla scent is. Jeffree Star commented how strong the smell was and I suppose I didn’t really believe him. Or could not believe him until I had smelt it. The vanilla scent is very, very strong and I have a terrible sense of smell. Luckily, I love vanilla so it isn’t an issue for me and once it’s applied you can’t smell it. Only when you smell the tubes.
The glosses pigmentation and colour is excellent. Posie K is a gorgeous shade and I highly recommend it. The only downfall is that the liquid lipstick is a little bit on the dry side. Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks manage to be long lasting, matte and hydrating. But Kylie Jenner’s are definitely not made for people who are prone to dry or chapped lips. Luckily (again), I am not prone to dry or chapped lips but it could be an issue for you if you are. A huge positive point I can say for the gloss is that it is not sticky at all. I absolutely hate sticky gloss and it has put me off using the formula for years opting for matte all the way. But Kylie Jenner seems to have cracked the non-sticky gloss formula.
Altogether, I do like both of these products. Are they worth the price tag? No, you can find cheaper alternatives elsewhere. Despite the singles only being $17 which is what I usually pay for a liquid lipstick. They aren’t quite as good as my usual favorites. Am I glad I bought them? Yes, actually. My curiosity has been satiated. I no longer need to shop from Kylie Jenner’s made-up line because I already have a piece of it and know what it is like.
