Kylie Lip Gloss: ‘Like’ Review Beauty, April 13, 2016

Charli Howard

I’m a big fan of Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits. Although they’re a bit pricey, they are beautiful, durable and come in the prettiest of shades. It’s no wonder that girls worldwide have become addicted to them.

Like a lot of people, I’ve become obsessed with trying to get hold of a lip kit. I don’t know what it is about her products that makes them so appealing, but I’ve fallen into that trap of checking when her website will restock and feeling disappointed when I don’t get one (it must be the idea of wanting what you can’t have!).

As for Kylie’s original Lip Kits, I have Candy K and I love it – it’s a beautiful, neutral colour that compliments my pale skin tone.

Anyway, luckily for me, I managed to get hold of a new Kylie gloss last week whilst sitting in Wholefoods. I chose ‘Like’, a nice cocoa brown that I hoped would warm my skin tone. I wish I bought more colours, but as I tried to order the other glosses, they sold out instantly.

I really like the box it arrives in but I do find it a bit wasteful. Your product arrives surrounded by foam (I’ve taken more foam out of there that you can’t see in the photo). I’m pretty sure a gloss of that size doesn’t really need that amount of packaging or protection, so I hope they work on changing that (Hashtag Save The Planet).

The gloss comes in a thin, matte box:

The gloss itself is very thick and what I love is that it takes a good amount of rubbing to take off. Unlike a lot of lip glosses, the shine lasts for a long time without having to reapply it. The brush to apply it with, however, is not great quality – the hairs are quite scraggly, so you’ve got to apply it really carefully or it will leave lines over your chin!

Overall, I really liked the gloss colour, durability and quality, but I feel Kylie Cosmetics should work on improving their packaging. Treating yourself to a Kylie gloss ($15) or a lip kit ($29) is a luxury for most teenagers, so should feel like it!

    Wow, it looks like a lovely colour. The packaging is quite similar to the NYX Lingerie lipsticks which makes you wonder about the price difference, so you’re right definitely room for improvement on the packaging front.
