Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits Swatches, Review & Dupes

Each set retails for $29 USD and includes a liquid lipstick (0.11 fl oz) and lip pencil (0.03 oz). 
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):
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. 
I'm in love with the packaging! 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. Also, I do wish the liners were sold separately because I won't be using the lighter shade lip liners.


Currently she has 6 shades but will be launching more shades. 
  1. Koko K Pale Pinky Nude
  2. Candy K Soft Warm Nude
  3. Dolce KMedium Beige Nude
  4. Posie K Dusty Mauve Pink  
  5. Mary Jo K - True Blue Red
  6. True Brown K - Deep Chocolate Brown

The lip liner glides on very smoothly. It's very creamy, pigmented and easy to apply. It's great to define lips and prevent lipsticks from bleeding my lips from bleeding. However, I doubt I will use Koko K and Candy K lip liners because I personally would use a darker lip pencil to line my lips with those shades. I personally wish the lip liners were sold separately.

As for the liquid lipsticks, the lighter shades might appear very light when you apply them but they do become darker, which I'm happy about. I'm quite impressed with the formula overall but depending on the shade, it can vary. 
  • Pigmented & Opaque
  • Long wearing: Most of the shades are long wearing and long lasting. If you eat greasy food, these do come off but they fade 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: These are drying but not uncomfortable on the lips in my opinion. I would recommend exfoliating and moisturizing to ensure a smooth application. They also emphasize the lines on my lips.
  • Minimal Transfer: It does transfer a bit even when dried but not too much. 

Koko K
Pale Pinky Nude
This is my least favorite because it's so light that it doesn't complement my skin tone. I would prefer pairing it up with another lipstick or lip liner but I won't be using the lip pencil of this shade.

Candy K
Soft Warm Nude
This one is okay but it doesn't look too bad on my skin tone. Similarly to Koko K, I doubt I will use the lip liner that comes with it.

Dolce K
Medium Beige Nude
I actually like this one because it's brownish nude and complements my skin tone more.

Posie K
Dusty Mauve Pink
This is a beautiful everyday shade for me! I love it! However, I wasn't a fan of the formula. I wore it throughout the day and noticed a white film on my lips with this shade unlike the others.

Mary Jo K
True Blue Red
I love this one! I think this will complement a lot of skin tones as well. However, I don't think it's worth buying if that's the only shade you want to buy. I find you can get Stila Beso or Anastasia Beverly Hills American Doll. As for the formula, it lasted throughout the day pretty well and it faded away nicely.

True Brown K
Deep Chocolate Brown
This is my favorite out of the collection. In my opinion, this is totally worth buying from this collection. I find it complements so many skin tones. I also love the formula on this one! It was long wearing and faded away nicely.
