Well ladies, if you’ve seen any of my social media pages over the past few days, you will know that my Kim Kardashion for Kylie Cosmetics cream liquid lipstick set finally arrived, and let me tell you, I was like a child on Christmas morning when I opened them up.
Today I wore my first shade in the collection, a brown toned nude called Kimberly, that actually looks much browner in the swatch than it does on my lips. In fact, I was pretty surprised by how pale this was once I applied it.
I layered it up a few times to try build the color, but while it was filling the lips a bit more, layering didn’t make the shade any darker. The consistency is quite a wet creamy liquid, so it’s hard to build the color as it drags slightly when you apply – there really is no drying or setting time with this at all, and as you can see from the photos, the coverage isn’t that good.
Because of that, I found the formula just didn’t last that long on my lips throughout the day, and I reapplied it a good few times to keep the colour. So basically, first impressions haven’t been that amazing to be honest.
I’m not bursting with excitement over it I have to say, which is such a shame because I was so excited to use this. I do like it because of the creamy formula, but I just wish the consistency was thicker and the pigment, bolder and longer lasting.
I’m slightly worried that the paler shades are going to look far too pale when I wear them because I thought this one would be a lot darker than it actually is. But, I’m looking forward to trying them out and seeing if they leave me feeling a little more than underwhelmed.
