Kylie Cosmetics Haul and Swatches!

Ever since Kylie Jenner released her cosmetics line I told myself not to get anything. Mostly because I have a love hate relationship with matte liquid lipsticks. The other reason is the hassle; being from the UK it’s just too difficult and too much fuss. I very nearly didn’t make this order when I saw the price of shipping, as $14.95 with added customs is a lot.

I paid a lot of money for this, and I kind of don’t want to work out how much, as I just know it’ll be through the roof. I placed this order a day or two before the news of the collection with Kim, that I think I would have tried to go for instead, but that’s just my luck. Even if I love these products I won’t be rushing to buy anymore, as my £21.23 customs charge has put me right off. It’s almost like paying for delivery about five times for the one parcel.

I did however get the offer of spending so much and choosing certain products for free. I managed to pick up three extra things; which I guess don’t work out as free when you calculate the extra costs (Not that I’m upset about the price or anything…)

I knew I wanted to try the Velvet range which I haven’t heard much about, but I couldn’t decide between Harmony and Dazzle, so I decided to get both. Mainly because when I took one out of my basket it put me under the amount to get the third item for free. (Just can’t resist those deals)

Velvet Lip Kit | Harmony

I much prefer Velvet formulas, so I of course had to try these out. Harmony is described as a warm mid toned pink. I’m excited to give this a go, as it shouldn’t settle into lines or dry down to a matte finish, so we’ll see how I get on with these.

Velvet Lip Kit | Dazzle

Dazzle is described as a warm terracotta which seems to be the colour I’m reaching for the most just recently, so this should be a great addition to my collection!

Kylighter | Cotton Candy Cream

When Kylie first launched her makeup line, I told myself I would probably make the effort to buy something if she released highlighters, so here we are. I love the packaging and how it is the same colour as the highlight its self. I also love the melted design on the highlighter. Cotton Candy Cream is described as a soft light peach.

I have no idea if you can see it, but I found it incredible hard to swatch.

The next three things I got for free (sort of)

 Gloss | Exposed

I don’t tend to use gloss that much, but I’ve seen this everywhere, and it looks stunning! The colour is described as a warm mid tone beige. I will say that I aren’t keen on the applicator, I only opened it once and it’s slightly frayed already.

Lip Liner | Kourt K

This is a colour that I love, but have never tried. It’s not very Spring like, but it was free so can’t complain. Kourt K is a deep purple, and after I’ve seen all of the negative reviews of the liquid lipstick, I’m hoping that this lip liner can be worn on its own.

Lip Liner | Ginger

Ginger is a colour that I see everywhere, and the lip liner seems to be a good place to start. The colour is described as a warm terracotta brown which is definitely the colour I’m drawn to at the minute.

So this is everything I’ve bought from Kylie Cosmetics!

Have you tried anything from her range?

Thank you for reading!

    I want to try the velvet kits I can see why you bought them both its hard to pick! I’ve bought from Kylie Cosmetics a couple of times and the customs charge is soo bad!! I wish I’d got one of her highlighters xx polishedcouture.com

      They seem to be really good, and I think she’s bringing some new colours out soon! They’re so hard to choose between! The customs is really bad, it’s so much money xx

    • 7th May 2017 / 4:36 pm

      Her products always look really good, so I’m excited to try these out! Hope you manage to get your hands on some soon xx

    I’ve never tried anything from Kylie, but the lip products do look pretty nice. I’ve heard that the highlighters and blushes are tough to get pigment out of because of how tightly they’re pressed.

    • 7th May 2017 / 4:39 pm

      She does some gorgeous colours! That’s true, this highlight was incredibly hard to swatch xx

  3. 7th May 2017 / 5:37 pm

    Ahhh can’t believe how much that cost I am too tight!! I don’t think I’ll ever buy anything from Kylie Cosmetics, plus in my opinion the highlighters are shitty 🙁 xx

    Your photography on point as always!

      It costs waaay too much, I practically cried when the customs card came! Don’t blame you in a way, it seems like people either love them or hate them. Yeah, I was extremely disappointed by how hard this one was to swatch. Thank you lovely xx

    i ordered from kylie cosmetics back in november and it really didn’t work for me. the colours are nice and the pigmentation is lovely but the ones i have are a pain to take off. its just horrid and leaves my lips feeling dead.

      Ah that sounds awful, I hate it when lipstick is a pain to take off. Lasting power is good, but it should come off when you want it to! Definitely don’t want anything that’s going to leave your lips feeling dead either xx

    • 7th May 2017 / 7:52 pm

      They really are pretty colours! Yeah, the price is insane!xx

  5. 7th May 2017 / 7:57 pm

    You got great pictures! I want to try the lip kits but customs are so expensive I don’t even know if it is worth it haha. Hopefully she’ll start selling in stores and it can be available in Selfridges or Debenhams!

      Thank you! It would be so much better if she got her products stocked in a store over here, or do what Anastasia Beverly Hills does and have a UK website xx

    OMG I absolutely love these shades! I’ve never tried any Kylie Cosmetics as I fear that falling in love with them will make me bankrupt! Customs charges are a pain in the bum, but we just can’t resist can we?!

    • 10th May 2017 / 8:50 am

      haha that is a good reason to stay away! Customs are the worst, but that is so true!xx

  7. 7th May 2017 / 9:14 pm

    These are such beautiful shades! I’m not a fan of the Kardashians, so I’ve never looked at the cosmetics. I’ve heard such mixed reviews about them too. Saying that, I do like the colours here. I think I’s still be put off by the customs and delivery charges though. Xx

      They really are! Yeah, some people seem to love them and others seem to love them. Customs and delivery is a little too crazy and I don’t think I’ll be buying anything again xx

  8. 8th May 2017 / 12:16 pm

    I only own one of the original Matte lip kits, but the velvet ones sound so appealing! Ginger is also a beautiful shade, so unique! I would definitely have tried out the highlighters, but I just think sadly the packaging puts me off a little just because I know how much customs and posting can be! xx

      How do you find the matte ones? It really looks it. Yeah, the delivery and customs is just way too much xx

  9. 8th May 2017 / 1:19 pm

    SO jealous, I’ve been meaning to haul some Kylie Cosmetics bits for a while but just haven’t got round to it. I didn’t know that the Kourt K liquid lip is supposed to be bad – thanks for letting me know! x
    Lots of love,

      Some of her products look so good! Hope you get around to it! Yeah, I swear I heard some bad reviews that it’s streaky because of the dark colour; no problem! Thank you for reading!xx

    I’ve wanted to try Kylies products for the longest time now but the large fees have always put me off! Think I might have to make an order soon though. X

      The price for shipping and customs is a lot! Hope you manage to get something xx

  12. 8th May 2017 / 10:33 pm

    Dazzle looks like such a pretty shade, I haven’t tried any of Kylie products though as I have heard mixed reviews about them and thought they are slightly overpriced.

      Dazzle is such a lovely one! People seem to love them, but others seem to hate them! There is no in between haha!xx

  13. 9th May 2017 / 10:49 am

    All her products look stunning to me, I think the packaging and the shades are gorgeous but that customs fee nuh-uh not here for that haha. Great photos! Xxx

    I really want to try Kylies products, the highlighter’s packaging looks amazing!

  15. 10th May 2017 / 7:51 am

    OUCH! That custom charge. That’s the main reason why I haven’t tried to purchase anything from the range. Saying that, the Kourt lip liner color looks amazing!

      It’s so much isn’t it?! I nearly cried haha! It really does seem like a pretty colour xx

    • 11th May 2017 / 4:35 pm

      Ginger is such a gorgeous colour, and that’s a good idea!xx

  16. 11th May 2017 / 5:30 pm

    How did the highlighters perform on the skin? I love the look of them but am worried they’re over hyped X

      I’ve had a go of it, and it’s okay. It’s not blinding, but if you like subtle highlights then you should love it! I wouldn’t rush to buy more xx

  17. 11th May 2017 / 10:20 pm

    I didn’t want to like these products because Kylie Jenner pisses me off a little but these products look so nice haha. I love the lip colours! You have a lovely little blog here by the way, well done on all your hard work with it! x
