ColourPop Dupes for Kylie Lip Kits

Check out my latest video for Kylie Lip Kits comparison with ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipsticks and dupes for Kylie Cosmetics Lipsticks.

Koko K
Closest Dupe: ColourPop Bianca
ColourPop Bianca is the closest dupe I found but it's slightly deeper than Koko K. I don't use Koko K on its own because I find it's lighter for my skin tone (MAC NC40-NC42). I usually mix it with another lipstick, so I wish I got with Bianca instead.
Here's how Koko K compares to ColourPop Bianca on the lips: 
Candy K
Closest Dupe: ColourPop Clueless & ColourPop Trap
It was hard for me to find a dupe for Candy K but the closest one is by mixing ColourPop Clueless and ColourPop Trap. I personally love the shade Candy K and I wear it a lot, so I'd personally stick with Candy K.
Here's how Candy K compares to ColourPop Clueless on its and by mixing it in with ColourPop Trap:

Dolce K
Closest Dupe: ColourPop Beeper
ColourPop Beeper isn't as brownish as Dolce K but it's still a very good dupe for it. I don't wear Dolce K too often, so it would have been better for me if I stuck with ColourPop Beeper.

Here are arm/lip swatches of Dolce K and ColourPop Beeper:

Posie K
Closest Dupe: ColourPop Clueless
ColourPop Clueless is slightly lighter but it can work for Posie KStila All Day Liquid Lipstick Patina or Sephora Marvelous Mauve #13 are more expensive than ColourPop but I find they're also great dupes for Posie K.

  • Here are arm/lip swatches of Posie K and ColourPop Clueless:

    True Brown K
    Closest Dupe: ColourPop Limbo
    ColourPop Limbo is warmer than True Brown K but it's hard to tell a difference on the lips. Out of all the Kylie Cosmetics Lipsticks that I've tried, I think True Brown K is the best in terms of formula. If you're looking for a lipstick with a similar shade to True Brown K, then definitely go for ColourPop Limbo but I prefer True Brown K because I really like the formula.
    Here are arm/lip swatches of True Brown K and ColourPop Limbo:

    Mary Jo K
    Closest Dupe: ColourPop Creeper
    Even though both of the shades are described as true blue red, I find Mary Jo K is more of a classic blue-toned red than ColourPop Creeper, which is brighter. However, it's still a good dupe for it.
    Here are arm/lip swatches of Mary Jo K and ColourPop Creeper: 

    I also decided to test out both of the shades and I found that after eating, both of the shades slightly faded off in the middle but Mary Jo K did come off more than ColourPop Creeper but I'm not sure if it's because I applied some more lipstick on top after it dried, so it became flakey. ColourPop Creeper does transfer though, so I'd definitely recommend a lip liner with it, which I usually do use anyway.
