Kylie Lip Kit True Brown K

Also check out my ColourPop dupes video and I'm also giving away a Kylie Lip Kit of choice (Candy K or Kourt K). Giveaway ends on July 31st 2016 at 11:59 PM EST. 
Each set retails for $29 USD and includes a liquid lipstick and lip pencil. I got one set and paid about $60 CAD with shipping. I got the kit it in True Brown K but there are currently two other shades (Dolce K and Candy K). There are three more shades launching for her Valentine collection and only one of them has been revealed so far: Posie K.


I'm in love with the box! Each box represents the shade pretty well. On the back, there's Kylie's signature as well as her tips.

The ingredients of both lipstick and lip liner are also listed on the back. 

The lipstick contains 0.11 oz of product. As much as I love the box, I find the lipstick looks simple. I wish she incorporated some color to it.

Lip liner contains 0.03 oz. At first I thought it was one of those liners that can twist up but it's not. You have to sharpen it. I honestly prefer that because that way I can sharpen it to my liking. However, the cap isn't secure. It comes off very easily.

Here are swatches of True Brown K lipstick and lip liner: 

Many people were saying True Brown is dupe for ColourPop Limbo. The shades are very similar but ColourPop Limbo appears slightly warmer.

However, on the lips it's hard to tell unless if you take a photo with flash. I applied True Brown K lipstick & lip liner on top lip and ColourPop Limbo on my bottom lip. Here's a closeup lip swatch photo taken with flash:

The lip liner glides on very smoothly. It's very creamy, pigmented and easy to apply. At first I didn't think I needed the lip liner because I usually don't wear lip liners with liquid lipsticks but then I noticed lip liner does really help. It makes my lips more defined and prevents the lipstick from bleeding. Since I didn't have a lip liner of this shade, I'm glad it was included in the kit. However, I still wish it was sold separately because some people might already own a lip liner of this shade in their collection.
As for the liquid lipstick, I'm quite impressed with the formula. Now it's not the most comfortable liquid lipstick I've tried but it's opaque and very long wearing. A bit of lipstick did come off when I ate greasy food but it still didn't look that bad even after 7 hours.
  • Pigmented & Opaque
  • Long wearing: It does come off when you eat greasy food but fades away nicely.
  • Scented: It has a strong vanilla scent to it, which reminds me a lot of Stila All Day Liquid Lipsticks and Sephora Cream Lip Stains. I personally don't mind it.
  • Drying: It feels drying and emphasizes lip lines
  • Slightly Transfers: It does transfer a bit even when dried but not too much. 

Comparison with ColourPop Limbo
  • Similarities
    • Size: Both lipsticks contain 0.11 oz of product
    • Shade: The shades are very similar to each other. On my lips, both of the shades look pretty much the same but when I swatched them on my arm, ColourPop Limbo looked slightly warmer.  
  • Differences 
    • Price: ColourPop lipstick retails for $6 USD, while Kylie Lip Kit retails for $29 USD (lipstick & lip pencil). 
    • Formula: ColourPop Limbo feels slightly more drying and doesn't last as long as Kylie Lipstick. Also, it's not as opaque as Kylie Lipstick.
    • Scent: Kylie Lipstick has a strong vanilla scent, while ColourPop Limbo is unscented.

Here's my video with lip swatches of all 6 shades (Koko K, Candy K, Posie K, Dolce K, True Brown K and Mary Jo K):
