Product Review // Kylie Lip Kit

A few months ago, the Kylie Lip Kit hype began and at first I wasn't convinced, would the Kardashians produce a product that actually did what it said on the tin? I have never purchased a Kardashian product in the past as nothing has really appealed to me, I feel the packaging a lot of the time looks & feels plasticky and cheap but I've wondered whether any of their beauty related launches would be any good as nothing has ever made 'beauty cult status'. 
But I was persuaded by the demand for the lip kits and once Kylie released more shades I was convinced I needed to see what the hype was about. So when a friend at work was buying one I jumped on the bandwagon purchasing Posie K.
I have to say I do like the external packaging, I mean, I'm not overly keen on the grill on the front but it's still a bit different and fits her style. The packaging on the product is fine, it could be better but then when you break down the cost of the products themselves it's not too bad or simple - the tube still features the dripping design which keeps it all cohesive.  
So on to the actual product, so first impressions - I like it! I have to say I was surprised, the colour lasts a long time!  I put both the lip liner and liquid lipstick on for work and it was still fine at the end of the day. 
The formula is good, especially on the lip liner, it's super creamy and glides on so easily. The liquid lipstick though a little tricky to apply is nice and matte, you have to be precise though when applying and make sure to wipe any excess product from the dopher before using otherwise you end up putting on way more than you need and it ends up looking patchy. 
I'm not overly keen on the scent, it's very sweet and vanillery (new word), but then I'm not really a fan of fragrances being used in cosmetics anyway.
In terms of the colour, it's much more of a deep pink than it looks onsite, I was actually really impressed with the strong pigment of the colour and feel that it is a great nude for people with similar skin tones to me & who have naturally pinkier lips. I think Candy K would look a bit like foundation lips on me so I'm glad I went with Posie K. 
So there we have it, shockingly I do actually think this is a product worth purchasing, it's just a little tricky to get hold of, but if your quick then I would recommend. I would repurchase but for now I'm going to wait until they are stocked in the UK. 
Let me know if you've tried any of the other colours and your thoughts.
