In today’s post I’m going to be talking about some Kylie Jenner Lip Kit dupes. Before I carry on and anyone accuses me of ‘throwing shade’ at Kylie, I’m not. I think she leads a very fabulous life and I wouldn’t begrudge anyone’s success – my opinions in this post are solely based on Kylie Cosmetics as a business.
Personally I haven’t ordered a lip kit or tried too and I don’t plan on it. I find nothing enticing about the shade range and as I’m going to show you, there are plenty of dupes out there which are quite similar if not the same for much less. Even better they’re freely available in Ireland so you can wave bubye to US shipping fees, customs charges and waiting times 😉
If you’re somebody who is ordering them for the box they come in (this is a real thing) and reports this week are correct, going forward Kylie Cosmetics will be toning down the packaging because there’s allegedly a huge amount of theft during the delivery process meaning people aren’t receiving their kits in their entirety which is CRAZY! I genuinely hope going forward that the company can ramp up enough stock to meet demand to prevent this disappointing situation from happening in the future.
Now….onto the dupes. These three are based around the Sleek MakeUp Matte Me collection which has recently added six new shades to the range. They are €7.99 and available in Sam McCauleys and Boots. First up here are the Kylie shades:
And the Sleek shades:
- Shabby Chic = Candy K
- Rioja Red = Mary Jo K
- Birthday Suit = Dolce K
If you happen to find a glossy shade that is similar eg: MAC Film Noir is a good glossy dupe for True Brown K 😉 Tapping some loose powder over your lips after application will give it that matte effect.
As I mentioned in a previous post, keeping your lips hydrated is a must when wearing mattes – they apply smoother and don’t chap. I use Carmex every night and instead of applying more liquid lipstick for touch ups, a slick of this will do the job and help avoid caking 🙂
Have any of you found any dupes you were impressed with? Let me know in the comments or on Instagram @enjoyably_emma 🙂
