Simply Lippy Challenge Day 152 | KKW x Kylie Cosmetics Creme Liquid Lipstick in Shade Kimmie

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.


In terms of formula, it’s pretty much the same as before – creamy, with a lovely smooth texture that moisturises the lips nicely.


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.


I also found that because the colour pay off was better, it seemed to last a bit longer on my lips this time around which was a welcome change, and I did find it nice to wear.


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. 


My concern however is that the remaining two shades look much paler and therefore, I’m dubious about them being able to impress me.


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.
