I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the KKW x Kylie lip creams are one of the most disappointing lipstick releases of 2017 for me. I was so excited to try these when they came out, so much so, I spent a fortune getting them sent here between shipping and customs. But apart from one shade, I just don’t like these at all.
Of the four lip creams in the collection, only one had a colour that I really liked, and because I liked the colour I think that made the formula seem a little better. But overall, I didn’t find the formula or consistency that good at all.
It is creamy so I’ll give it that, and because of that it won’t dry out your lips. But, it is quite wet on application, meaning that it is impossible to layer and drags all the colour underneath. Because it is wetter than most cream finish lipsticks I don’t think I would really describe it as a cream finish, especially as it doesn’t really dry in either.
The lasting power isn’t good, the shades are too pale for my liking and I just feel very ‘meh’ every time I try one of these. For me, they definitely don’t live up to the hype and weren’t worth the money either.
I know people who have tried these and liked them so it’s all about personal preference. I’m sure you all know by now that I prefer richer tones and formulas, so maybe this was a mismatch from the beginning!
