I never thought I would actually be purchasing this but when the Kylie Lip Kits finally dropped a few Fridays ago (which was my birthday!) for some reason I was said to myself, “why not!” Rather than purchasing right at 9 am on the dot, I easily added Poise K in my cart (at 9:20AM) and it shipped out the same day.. CRAZY. Maybe its because I live in California but my package arrived early Monday afternoon.
Let’s start off with something that I really liked which was the product packaging on how you can see the color on the side of the box and that the name of the color is clearly on the top and not hidden.
Surprisingly, Poise K is darker than I thought. Which I really like and makes me more happy with my purchase. I can’t compare it with the older formula but I am pretty pleased with the new formula. The packaging was well-made. I didn’t have any problems where it oozed out everywhere when I would twist it open or close. It also has a large doe-foot applicator which I like. The lip liner is very creamy and goes well with the liquid lipstick since it is a bit drying. The smell of the liquid lipstick reminds me of a really sweet vanilla cupcake but isn’t too overpowering. The formula has a whip-like feeling on the lips.. it goes on so smooth, it isn’t thick or clumpy and it doesn’t even feel like you have anything on. The lasting power was really good for me and it didn’t transfer. The most important thing for me is that it wasn’t uncomfortable on my lips. I will say that before applying I exfoliated my lips so that would definitely have to be done before using this.
Here are some swatches in natural light: (L-lip liner ; R- liquid lipstick)
If your a liquid lipstick addict like me I would say this is something nice to have in your collection. Is it worth getting every color? That part is up to you especially because a lot of the colors have great dupes out there. The formula is really what won me over personally. One negative would definitely be the realllly high cost for shipping. Hopefully they do something about that because I know a lot of people made that call out as well.
The Kylie Lip Kits are supposedly going to be available more frequently now so keep your eyes peeled out on kyliecosmetics.com
