Okay, I’ll admit it. When Kylie Jenner announced she is launching a makeup line , I rolled my eyes. Like – is there an industry the Jenner’s don’t want to get into ? Plus I thought this would be one of those gimmicky lines that celebs endorse and that are totally not worth it. You know like when Pierce Brosnan endorsed a Pan Masala cos he didn’t really know what it was? That kinda stuff. But worse, cos well this is lipstick. And ruining makeup is just sacrilege.
But as time passed, I was kinda hooked and my fingers found themselves inching towards the Kylie Jenner lip kits. I ordered them online directly from the Kyliecosmetics website and got two colors- Posie K and Ginger K.
A quick note here- all you girls drooling over Candy k and Koko k and all the other ‘K’s’ out there- please understand they look fabulous on firang skin tones, but my friend ordered one and it looked like she had a disease. And not the ‘my lips are flushed’ kind of sickness but the ‘ Im going to throw up any moment’ sickness. So yes, stick to the deeper colors.

Anyway, coming to the point – Posie K is the prettiest dusty pink with mauve undertones. It reminds me so much of Mac Mehr. Its like a pale, soft pink which you can wear with smokey eyes or just as an everyday color. Its perfect for medium skintones but on lighter tones its a bit deeper.
The other one- is Ginger K. OMG I didn’t expect to like a brown but I kinda do. Its the only brown I own and its thing orangey terracotta color which makes my lips look super plump. It also gives this super sophisticated look on my lips . I wear this with thick eyeliner – its not a nude but it doesnt add color to my face which means I need a slightly heavier eye.

In terms of texture- Posie K is super comfortable to wear, but Ginger K is a bit drying. So I dont think I can wear these everyday BUT do these babies last. I can wear one at 8 am and it will last till that night at 11 pm.
Verdict : A
Price: The kits are for 29$ each and if you order 60$ its free shipping to India. So I ordered one full kit and two singles (Ginger Kit, Posie K single and Dirty Peach Single). For reference dirty peach is supppperrrr light on me. Looks terrible.
Reccomendation: Love both these colors so much. Specially because I can slick them on and no matter what I eat they will be on my lips for over 12 hours easy. Ginger is a bit drying and it settles into lines but Posie is better. Both colors best for medium to darker skintones.
