And this is the back of the box, which has the infamous Kylie’s Tips XDDD And all it says is to line lips with lipliner and fill lips in with liquid lip color. K.

I think this is the best testament to how fast it dries. I had just taken the wand out for less than a minute and suddenly the product smeared on the wand had already started to dry! By the time I was done with these shots it was almost completely dry on the wand! Craaaaay!

And this is what complicates the color paradox further. This is the lip pencil, which is not the same color as the liquid lipstick. And off the bat, if you’re wondering why the colors shown by different people are soooo different, it’s perhaps because of this. I think you get me when you like look at swatches and see marginal differences across different websites and more or less have a summary color in your head. But for this lip kit, that’s just not possible. If a person wears the lip liner over the whole lip, the color is immediately different compared to when the person only lined the outlines of the lips. The drying stages are also another source of variation, which I will discuss further in this post.

The lip liner has a basic lip liner packaging, and that’s okay. I honestly don’t know how one can make an “out of the box” lip liner package design. Please tell me if there’s a crazy packaging style already hahahah…

And finallehhh!!! Here is the swatch! This is the liquid lipstick! So this is how it looks like when wet. It’s a pinkish mauve shade, and I think you can see that this already looks darker than my photos of just the tube alone.

And this is how the lip pencil looks! The lip pencil has a much browner and warmer and less pinker shade than the liquid lipstick. I honestly could call it a shade of its own. It goes on wispy on the swatch, but it is very buildable so you can play it up according to your preference. And this is also how the liquid lipstick looks like when more or less dry. It’s marginally darker than when it was wet, but I already want to bring it up that the moment it’s on the lips the whole game changes because unless you conceal the pinkness of your lips, its pinkness is bound to influence the finalest final color of this product. Add the variation of lip liner usage and it creates even more variation.

And this is how it looks like on the lips. Now you can see that this is browner than the swatch photo right above. This is what I mean by variation hahaha. I used the lip liner on the whole lip before using the liquid lipstick because I personally have very dry lips. Amusingly, the combination worked well and my lips don’t look so cracked. They may look cracked here, but this is a zoomed in shot. As far as how it generally looks, I am so happy it doesn’t look cracked.

And I’m also happy about how it doesn’t flake off! I usually have a hard time with the legit liquid lipsticks because right when I apply them, I can barely smack my lips because it’s so sticky. I also can’t do it even when the lippie has dried because it flakes off immediately. This formulation dried really quickly so it didn’t feel sticky at all. It also didn’t flake off, which is why I was able to afford to take these lip swatch photos even if I’ve worn the lippie for almost an hour now here. I normally have to take photos with other liquid lipsticks right after application, because if not, a lot has already flaked or chipped off if I leave it for quite some time.
It’s honestly very comfortable. It doesn’t feel heavy on the lips so it doesn’t feel restraining. You’re also free to smack and pucker (it’s kiss proof, too, BTW!) since it won’t be sticky or flake up. While it didn’t move, it didn’t feel tight on the lips, more so given how dry my lips are.

And now for the lasting power. I kid you not, this lippie slaaaays when it comes to staying power. I had already taken a bath, brushed my teeth, washed my face (and I washed my lips as well!). It stayed put with no problems whatsoever. Even on the skin patch swatch, I had already applied alcohol and body lotion but it still stayed put! Craaaay.
