Like 22...

Hey girlies, you may have guessed the theme of todays post by the title!

Its a review of both lip products by Kylie Jenner. Ok, so just about every single girl in the world want these kits/glosses! If you have ANY of them, then kudos to you! They are like gold dust, maybe even worse to some girls! Unless you're a serial shopper, keyboard warrior and watch Kylie's snapchat like a hawk (me me me me!!), then its pretty damn hard to get your hands on these, they go live usually on a monday evening (UK time) and sell out in like what three minutes? Its crazy the amount of these that are sold!

So for those of you who don't really know what these are- (living under a rock *cough cough*) the 'Lip Kit' is a Lip Liner and Matte Liquid Lipstick, and the Glosses are yip- just a liquid gloss!
The Kits have 8 different colours- 22, Kourt K, Dolce K, KoKo K, Candy K, Posie K, Mary Jo K, and True Brown K. 
The glosses 3- Like, Literally and So Cute. (are these not all your favourite words?) I say them all the time, sometimes even together! I'm that annoying girl, yep haha

Anyway, I managed to get my hands on 22 and Dolce K when I eventually got some. But from my other posts, and knowing me personally, many of you know my best friend lives in Australia, so with the time difference when Kylie puts them live etc my friend can never seem to get her hands on them, so when I had two and she had none, I felt awful - so I sent her Dolce K, so I can't actually do a review on it. 
Then when it came to the glosses, I couldn't get any at the time, but my sister managed to get two for us; both in the shade "Like". 


Lets start with the Lip Kit- the first thing that I noticed when I did a swatch on my hand, with both the Lip Pencil and Liquid Lipstick was the colour pay off! It is amazingggg, it genuinely is exactly like it is on the bottle/lid, it is very soft and goes onto the lips so easily. I've worn this lots of times and every time the liner has stayed on all day, food, drinks, kisses, you name it- everything haha - it is so durable!
The Liquid Lipstick however, I'm still not 100% sold about how I feel of the durability. Because it is matte, it has that dehydrating feeling that you constantly have to either lick your lips or else re apply over and over again to get that nourishing feeling, other wise- it does get a little chalky and starts to crumble if you don't. 


The glosses came around 10 days after we purchased them and as everyone knows, I'm obsessed with nude colours on the lips! So needless to say I was very excited to open these, I didn't even wait till I got home to do the usual pretty Instagram photo I usually do- I collected them from the post office and tried them out in the car park haha. The first thing I noticed about the glosses was when I opened them, the brush on the end of the wand was awful. As you can see from the photo, not usually what a wand should look like - especially for such a hyped-up product!

I was so disappointed, but having used another make up brush to apply the product when I eventually got home, I was again surprised at how good it actually was. The pigmentation, again, was superb, the texture was much better than the lip kits and it smells incredible! At first I thought it was just my brush that was like this, but after trailing the internet looking for reviews, I found out a lot - if not most of the first batch of glosses were actually like this, it was some sort of manufacturing fault. 

Then we watched Kylies snapchat and she had announced that she was going to be sending everyone who had purchased the awful first batch a new wand, as she had improved the length and brush of it. My sister then was sent an a confirmation email to say that two new brushes had been sent out to replace the two we had already been sent, which in my eyes I thought that was really generous of Kylie to recognise the mistake and try and correct it, even though it shouldn't have been there in the first place!

Another 10 days or so past until they arrived (had to pay £12 custom fees though), but when I opened up the package it was two brand spanking new BOTTLES of glosses! With the new and improved smaller wands. The only thing I'm not so sure about is the colour difference, I don't know if its my head or not, but can you see a colour difference in these two 'Like' bottles? I think the newer bottle is slightly darker? Just me? haha But anyway, I basically got a free gloss sent out, (minus the custom charge haha) so when the other one runs out I can just use the new wand on the older gloss.. Result!  Thanks King Kylie!

So over all would I purchase these again? Yes- IF they were avavible in a shop, I don't think I would go through all the hassle and trouble of trying to get them online again. 

Would I recommend them to you guys? Yes I would- The colour pay off, durability, and price are all good factors for me, so I would definitely recommend them!

Hope this helped anyone wanting to get their hands on glosses or lip kits. Thanks for reading girlies! Emma Jane xx
