First things first. Before I go into my review of my lipstick shade for Day 152, you may recall how excited I was when my Kim K nude lippy set arrived a few weeks ago, and also how utterly underwhelmed I was by the first shade I tried, Kimberly.
To be honest, I think it was one of the most disappointing beauty moments I’ve had because the swatches looked so gorgeous that I couldn’t wait to try them. I thought I would love them, but sadly, I didn’t.
Fast forward to Day 152; I’ve worn and tested out my second shade from the set, Kimmie, and I have to say, my opinion is a little better than it was before, mainly because I like the shade a LOT more.
However, what I didn’t like about it previously was the quite wet consistency, and that still remains on this one. But, and (this is a big but!), because Kimmie is bolder red toned nude shade, the pigment is a lot better, and therefore doesn’t drag the colour in the same way Kimberly did and was a lot more buildable.
As I’ve tried two of the four lipsticks now, I suppose I’m 50/50 on whether or not I like them. I don’t think I’d go shouting from the roof tops about them, but I definitely way prefer this shade and will wear it again, unlike the other one which I think will sit pretty in its box for the foreseeable future.
If you could buy them as separate lipsticks, I think I probably would repurchase this one, but as to whether the set of four is worth it? Right now, I’m saying no, but I’ll just have to see how I get on with the other shades.
