Kylie Cosmetics Candy K Lip Kit Review flat lay

Hello Sweeties! The beauty world has been taken by storm since Kylie Jenner released her line of Instagram-worthy cosmetics. I have been dying to get my hands on one of her stunning lip kits ever since they were released, and I was lucky enough to receive Candy K as part a birthday present in 2016. I've been itching to share my thoughts on the lip kit that I consider to be the lip product of 2016, and the time has finally come!

For those of you who are not familiar with Kylie's infamous lip kits (where have you been in 2016?), the kit includes a lip liner and matte liquid lipstick. The idea is to line your lips with the liner and fill in with the liquid lipstick for the perfect 'Kylie Lip'. The matte liquid lipstick is described as a "comfortable", "long wearing", "bold lip", while Kylie has described the lip liner to be "ultra long wearing" with a "creamy texture". Candy K was one of Kylie's first released and most popular lip kit shades, and is supposed to be a "warm pinky nude".


Personally, I love the packaging of Kylie's lip kits. The actual box features Kylie's signature lip logo, and the staple dripping effect. I think the liquid lipstick packaging is so sleek and simple, yet I love how stunning the product looks on my makeup drawers. There's not much to say about the packaging of a lip liner, however I love that it has the colour at the end of the liner so it's nice and easy to find among my other lip liners. I guess it's nice enough for a lip liner, but it's the liquid lipstick packaging I adore! It looks and feels quite luxurious and I love how cute Kylie's name logo looks paired with the dripping effect. As far as packaging goes, Kylie's lip kit is a 10/10 for me.


The Kylie Cosmetics lip liners are possibly my favourite lip liners of all time. They are the creamiest lip liners I've ever tried, they truly glide onto your lips with no effort at all. The product is so smooth in texture and the liner has enough pigmentation that it does act as a great guide if you're wearing a darker lip kit colour. I'm in love with the liner for Candy K because I feel like it enhances the colour of the liquid lipstick while defining my lip line for easy application of the liquid lipstick. I use this liner all the time under other lipsticks to deepen them up a bit because I find this nude liner looks amazing under some of my other nude lipsticks.


The star of the show, this liquid lipstick was my go to lip choice towards the end of 2016. This product is really up there for me ion the liquid lipstick ranks. Firstly, this literally smells like a dream. It smells absolutely insane, like strawberries mixed with buttercream and cupcakes. I'll often find myself just sitting there sniffing it without even putting it on. It's amazing. 

On to the actual product, I'll first mention that it's extremely long wearing, without being too drying - an attribute that is essential for me when it comes to liquid lipsticks. I definitely prefer liquid lipsticks that don't dry out my lips too much, and this product does that PLUS being super long wearing; I can go for a meal out and the liquid lipstick won't budge all night. The product has a runnier formula than some other liquid lipsticks however it is very easy to apply and glides on effortlessly. It feels so weightless and like there's nothing on my lips, which is another quality I adore about this liquid lipstick. The liquid lipstick also features a dofer applicator which is a total must for me when is comes to liquid lipsticks, it makes it so much easier to apply the product with precision. 

Although Candy K is a beautiful colour, I will say if you have fair skin be very careful with which shade you buy! On my skin tone I would describe Candy K as a slightly deeper pinky nude, so keep that in mind if you want to purchase Candy K. The colour was a bit darker than I expected but I do love it for something very slightly more adventurous than my usual "my-lips-but-better" kinda nude. But, in saying that it is still a nude and very wearable on my skin tone.

Overall, I'm so impressed with Kylie's liquid lipsticks. I feel like some celebrities will release makeup products/merch and just slap their name on it without putting a lot of thought into the actual product. I think Kylie has done so well with her cosmetics range and has put so much thought and care into her makeup line, and I admire her so much for that! I would highly highly recommend you try out one of her lip kits, I know I'll be trying out more shades in the future!

Have you tried one of Kylie's lip kits?
