Review│KKW By Kylie Cosmetics Crème Liquid Lipstick Set

When Kylie Cosmetics announced they were releasing a liquid lipstick set in collaboration with Kim Kardashian West, featuring her favorite nude lip colors, I knew I had to get my hands on it. I already own a few eyeshadow palettes and liquid lipsticks from Kylie Cosmetics (review of those coming soon), so I am familiar with the brand and their products. For the most part I like what I have tried so far, and I love how the lineup is constantly expanding. There is literally something for everyone-liquid lipsticks, lip glosses, highlighters, eyeshadows, blushes, eye brushes, etc. It's definitely fun, and I am always looking forward to what Kylie Cosmetics brings us next.

The KKW x Kylie Cosmetics Crème Liquid Lipstick Set ($45) contains four liquid lipsticks in a new crème formula that helps moisturize and hydrate lips. The texture feels light and comfortable on the lips, and doesn't dry them out like traditional liquid lipsticks can. These lay on the lips really nicely, and don't emphasize lines or other imperfections. The finish is super creamy, and I love how these liquid lipsticks give my lips a healthy and juicy look.

When it comes to color payoff, these liquid lipsticks are easy to build up. One layer yields a sheer-light coverage, while the addition of a second layer gives a more opaque result. These can go on a bit streaky upon application, so be prepared to spend a little extra time finessing the product onto lips, to even things out. Speaking of application, these liquid lipsticks contain a slanted, sponge-tip applicator who's shape comes in real handy when it comes to precision. There is just one drawback...the sponge tip feels a bit rough on my lips. A little more cushion would have been very much appreciated.

I don't find these liquid lipsticks particularly very long-wearing. To be honest, I kind of expected that since they don't really "set" on the lips and aren't really transfer-proof. But, as the color fades, it does so in an even manner. These even leave behind a light stain with a matte/satin effect that looks really pretty on the lips.

The packaging of this collection is on point. The rosy pink box, the matte tubes with the rosy pink accent-ugh, so glam! I'm digging it.

Personally, I really like how the liquid lipsticks from the KKW x Kylie Cosmetics set look on me-my most favorites being Kim and Kimmie. I tend to lean towards colors like these when it comes to nude lips, so these are right up my alley. But if the colors are a little too light or chalky-looking for you, try using these in conjunction with a neutral lip liner of a deeper hue. By doing so, you may just find these more wearable and less overwhelming.

Overall, I am really happy that I was able to get a KKW x Kylie Cosmetics Crème Liquid Lipstick set. I was very pleased with the gorgeous shades as well as the formula, and I have been rocking these lots since they compliment so many of my looks. Needless to say, these are my new favorite spring/summer lip color staples.

Unfortunately, this set was limited edition. But I am hoping that these will be released again in the near future. Singles would be cool too-I would totally grab a back-up of Kim and Kimmie, ASAP!
