Hey beauty netizens of the world! I finally was able to try and review one of the liquid matte lipsticks from Kylie Cosmetics. When these first launched, I wasn’t too interested to to get them and was never drawn into the hype. The website is the not easy to navigate, does have glitches and crashes quite often every time there is a launch. I’m also thinking, the colors are not too unique and the formula is something very similar with the other niche brands out on the market. While vacationing in San Diego a few weeks ago, I’ve just decided of placing an order for Kylie KoKo K. If I am able to get in the site, great and if I won’t then there’s no regrets on my part. The new Guerlain Pearls Carousel Meteorites is a highlighting blush. As a collector, I always look forward for new releases every Spring and Fall.
Kylie KoKo K Liquid Matte Lipstick and Lip Liner appears over my brown skin as a bright cool toned peach beige. I dries to a flat matte in about 20 seconds after application. The formula is a non hydrating, non drying during the first 3 hours and starts to feel a bit dry after the fourth hour. It is moderately opaque which doesn’t require layering even over my pigmented lips. It lasted for an average of 4.5 hours with no eating or drinking greasy or creamy food and drinks. The lip liner is the exact color as the lipstick. So if you are planning on making your lips look fuller, might grab a different and darker shade. The Lip Liner breaks pretty easily. I suggest to keep its length short. It never turns flaky throughout its wear and does have a very pleasant scent like a raspberry cake batter.
Guerlain Pearls Carousel Meteorites is a highlighting blush that also color corrects. It lasted for almost 8.5 hours of wear and left a very subtle sheen and glow on my skin. I won’t recommend using this as an all over face powder. But if you remove the red balls, it may effectively work as a color corrector. I apply this over my cheekbones just slightly above where I usually sculpt my cheeks for contour. It also possess a subtle bronzed sheen from a few of the balls that were also a part of the can. I usually swirl my round blush brush in 4 different directions then apply with light strokes into the apples of your cheeks. I didn’t have a lot of powder deposits in my can. I must have been one of the lucky ones who were able to get the most of the product. You get a lot of powder from shipping and handling from the factory to the stores.
The Bottom Line:
Kylie KoKo K’s formula is very similar to Black Moon Cosmetics’ liquid lipsticks. It is very lightweight and never feels tacky. Keep the length of the lead with color of the lip liner short for better grip and precision. I also just placed an order for the new shade, Kylie Kourt K, with expected delivery early next week. Guerlain Pearls Carousel Meteorites or any other meteorites is very customizable. You can take off or add in new balls depending on your needs. Take all the red balls out to use as an all over face powder color corrector. I’ve also noticed that the pan is smaller but of the same product weight as compared with my other meteorites. Until next time…
