Kylie Lip Kits First Impressions + Swatches! Koko K & Dead of Knight!

Hi everyone! As I’m sure you will all know, Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits have been taking the world by storm the last few months and after debating whether to purchase some of my own, I finally went for it!

Firstly, a little bit about shipping and  customs – feel free to skip this paragraph if you just want to hear about the products themselves! Being in the UK, I was aware of potential customs fees which is why I took a while to decide whether I wanted to buy the lip kits, as although they are fairly affordable on their own, it can end up being pretty expensive with customs and shipping added on top. However, I ended up being really lucky and not getting any customs charges on top of the $14.95 shipping fee I paid! I have heard some orders end up being charged by customs and some do not, so this is something to just be aware of when ordering if you are outside of the US.

Anyway, onto the exciting part – the actual lip kits! I went for two shades – Koko K and the brand new shade Dead of Knight. The lip kits are $29 each which is around £21 – I think this is a pretty good price for a lipstick and a lip liner. My confirmation email said to expect a delivery within 10-15 business days and mine arrived in 8 – it was a really nice surprise when they arrived early! They are packaged beautifully, as you can see below:

I love the packaging and the colours on the box allow you to easily see which lip kit is which. I was really impressed with the packaging of the actual products too – the lip liner reminds me of the style of Mac’s pro lip liners and the packaging of the liquid lipstick really stands out.

Now for swatches! I am about to start my own YouTube channel and have got all my equipment ready to start filming, so I will be filming a video with swatches and a demonstration on the lips, too – if you guys would like to see any videos in particular, then please let me know! Below you can see both the liner and lipstick from Koko K and Dead of Knight swatched:

Koko K is a beautiful pink shade – as I’m pretty fair, this is a really lovely mauve-pink shade on me and I can see it being a beautiful pale pink on those with darker skin tones. It’s so flattering and I can honestly see this shade working on everyone. Dead of Knight is amazing – a deep, pigmented black shade. The liner isn’t quite as dark as the liquid lipstick itself, but you can’t tell at all once the lipstick is on.

The liners glide on really easily, especially Koko K – they are very easy to apply and I love the formula. The liquid lipsticks are great too, a little drying as you would expect with mattes but they make the lips look really full and have amazing pigment. Dead of Knight is a little trickier to apply as darker shades need more precision, but overall the liquid lipsticks are easy to apply and look amazing.

I hope you enjoyed this review! Do you own any lip kits? Let me know which shades you recommend below!
