Battle of the Lip Kits!

Lip Kits have blown up over the past year, as Kylie Jenner launched her range and a lot of brands followed with their own versions. If you don’t know what a lip kit is, it is a liquid lipstick and lip liner sold together, so they are sure to match and you’re good to go.

In this post I will talk through lip kits from Makeup Revolution, Barry M, Kylie Cosmetics and MAC. In order for you to pick which one you like the best.

Makeup Revolution | Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit in Echelon £6

I picked this colour for the post, as it’s the one I’ve worn the most. I love this range, I cannot feel it whilst wearing it and I actually looked in the mirror a few times just to check that it was still there. It is very pigmented and swipes on easily with a decent amount of colour applied in one swipe! The liquid lipstick also doesn’t take that long to dry. The lip liner is also a huge hit, as I like my lip liners to be soft and creamy and that is exactly what this is. I will say to be careful when you’re opening these, as part of mine broke off when I first unpacked it. The liners are a little darker than the liquid lipstick, and glide on easily.

Echelon is the colour that I reach for the most, as it is my typical colour. It is a gorgeous brown nude that applies easily and has a strong colour on the first layer! For £6 this is a steal, especially if you like your mauve nudes.

 Barry M | Matte Me Up Lip Kit in Go To

 I bought this at the same time, as I picked the Makeup Revolution one up, and out of the two I reach for Echelon. I actually uploaded of haul of that shop.

Go To is such a gorgeous nude, it is definitely a ‘go to’ nude, so it’s pretty obvious how it got the name. It is one of those colours that goes with just about everything! They apply easily and dry down extremely matte. It is drying, but that’s understandable when the formula is so matte. The colour is extremely similar to Echelon, but I prefer that formula to this one.

Kylie Cosmetics | Velvet Lip Kit in Dazzle

This is one of my first Kylie products. I got this lip kit and another in the shade harmony. I’ve only worn this once, so that may be worth keeping in mind. I don’t know if it’s to do with my lips, but the formula to this is strange. At first I loved the sound of it not drying straight away, but it’s an inconvenience. It increases the time where your lipstick smudges incredibly easy. Once it did dry it felt incredibly heavy and drying, but it did come off easily. Dazzle is like a deep pink with bits of red, and is described as a warm terracotta.

MAC | Dark Nude Lip Kit Persistence and Spice £29.50

I only bought this as I needed to buy a pump and I couldn’t just buy a pump could I? No, no I could not. I don’t know what I was expecting from this, but there’s nothing new about this, it’s literally two of their products paired up and sold together. I don’t know what made me do this, but I just calculated the prices of the items sold separately and it costs the SAME, you aren’t even saving any money from buying them together! They don’t arrive in a special lip kit box either. Mine arrived sealed separately in bubble wrap. (Also kind of cheating by including this in here, as it’s not a liquid lipstick, but it is marketed as a lip kit)

If you like MAC lipsticks and lip liners then you’ll like this. Persistence is Matte. The colour reminds me of Velvet Teddy and Whirl, it’s somewhere in that area. It’s described as a peachy cinnamon. Spice is a lip liner that I always hear people talk about, so I was excited to be able to try it for myself. Spice matches the lipstick almost perfectly, as this is described as a Pink Cinnamon. I think it’s very brown with hints of orange and red just like the lipstick.

So there are my thoughts on all of the kits. I hope this post helps if you’re thinking about purchasing any! (This post also destroyed my arms)

Which lip kit is your favourite?

    I’ve wanted to try the Kylie lip kits for ages, but heard they were quite drying. I recommend the maybelline superstar liquid lipsticks…I love them!

  5. Alice says:

    Wow I LOVE the shade of that Mac lipstick! But just have to pick up one of the Makeup Revolution kits after you’ve spoken so highly about something so cheap! 🙂 Great post! X

      They really are, I tried not to edit the photo of the swatch, so you can see the colour properly! Thank you lovely, and the Barry M one is such a gorgeous colour xx

  9. Lucy Cole says:

    Think I’ll avoid the Kylie one and opt for Barry M, such a handy post!xx

  10. Jordan says:

    The Makeup Revolution shade is really pretty. I haven’t tried many lip kits as I don’t tend to wear matte lip products. x

  11. I’ve been thinking about purchasing Echelon from Makeup Revolution for a while now, and I think you’ve definitely persuaded me to buy it now! It seems such a gorgeous shade!! Xx

  12. Katie says:

    Echelon looks gorgeous, I need to try it! x

  13. Corinne & Kirsty says:

    I heard so much about all of these. Not sure I would invest in the Kylie once but defo in the Barry M! xx corinne

    • luxuryblush says:

      They all seem to be really talked about in the community! The Kylie one is a little pricey considering it isn’t the best, but the Barry M one is so good and so cheap too!xx

  14. chelsea says:

    I love a good lip product! I’ve only tried MAC lip products though, I definitely want to give the Kylie Cosmetics a go though! I’ve heard they are amazing! Great post!

  15. Robyn says:

    I love this post! I have the same issue with matte lip kits and I found that my Kylie Jenner is my least favourite because of the same reasons you listed- it feels really heavy and came of pretty easily! I really want to try the Revolution lipkit after reading your post!

  16. Lauren says:

    Love the Barry M and MAC kit!

  17. I really love this post. I had no idea that Revolution done lipkits so I’m certainly going to check that out! I love kylie cosmetics lipkits, they have to be some of my favourite formulas for sure, but I also like Milani. Have you tried them? Thank you so much for sharing lovely, such a fab post. Xo

    Elle –

    • luxuryblush says:

      Thank you! They do quite a few in different formulas, I’ve only tried this range and really like them! Kylie Cosmetics seem to be really hit and miss; it seems some love them and others hate them! I’ve not tried Milani, but only heard good things! No problem, thank you for reading; I’m glad you like it!xx

  18. Kristy says:

    I absolutely loved reading this post, I love the sound of the Makeup Revolution formula. I think I may have to pick one up in a couple of months when I’m not supposed to be on a spending ban!

  19. I love the look of these lip kits – I would really like to try a Kylie lip kit but there are lot of different opinions about them. I love all the shades and I definitely need to try the Makeup Revolution and Barry M lip kits as they look gorgeous.

  20. Jenny says:

    I’ve never actually tried a lip kit – the liquid lipstick stuff has always put me in mind of the horrors of lip gloss in school… *shudder*

    Seeing your post though i would actually go out and buy one to try for myself – probably a cheap one to start before spending more though!

  21. rae says:

    i love the kylie one! but i just like lip products so much. haha

    xoxo, rae

  22. Amy says:

    I love the look of Spice & that MAC combo. Good effort with this post, your arm skin must have been painful haha. – Amy

    • luxuryblush says:

      The MAC combo is beautiful, both of the colours are stunning! Thank you! Honestly, it wouldn’t come off properly, so you could really see where the lipstick had been; it wasn’t a good look haha!xx

  23. What a great comparison post! The Makeup Revolution one sound’s so good. I’ll have to check their lip kits out xx

    Lauren |

  24. Rosie says:

    Great post! I am so in love with the Barry M lip kits! I have all the shades and Go-To is a lot more drying than the other two – might be worth trying! The Makeup Revolution one looks great, I’ll have to go and pick one up!

  25. Khadija says:

    Such a great since these are the shades I prefer to wear and a great selection! I’m defo gonna try to get my hands on the Makeup Revolution one!

  26. Alice says:

    Lovely post! I’m really intrigued by lip kits yet I haven’t tried any yet, I’ve always liked the look of the Barry M ones.

  27. Nina says:

    These are beautiful shades, I especially liked MAC lipstick shade.

  28. kate says:

    I love the Barry M lip duos. I just hope they re-release them with more colours available!
    Kate x

  29. What a great selection ! I may give it a go . My personal favourite is limited edition Rihanna lip glosses which are not available anymore . I managed to snap one during my last trip to Cancun !

    Please pop by

  30. Although I have yet to actually get one of those Kylie lip kits, I do think these colours are pretty and neutral enough for anyone to wear. The Barry M shade is one of my favourites, actually. <3

  31. Morgan says:

    I love Spice! It’s such an awesome lip liner. Plus, MAC lip liners wear so well, often I wear them on their own without a lip colour over the top. You should try it!

  32. Charlotte says:

    I’ve heard so many good things about the Barry M lip kits it’s a shame that they aren’t available anymore because even with a good lip balm underneath they’d look amazing!

  33. Tissam Est La says:

    I don’t own any lip kits… Or do I ? I own so many lipsticks and lipliners that I can’t keep track of them all x)
    I have only one Barry M Matte Me Up liquid lipstick in the shade Pop Up and WOW. It’s one of my favorite liquid lipsticks ever. I’d been waiting for the pay to roll in and I’ve just made an order for all the Barry M single Lip Paints on Feelunique as well as the three metallic lip kits and the Lip Kits in Runway and Go To – still missing some but OMG, traveling to London on Monday (I live in France… where it’s impossible to come across Barry M except if you order online…) and I’m going to BREAK THE BANK ! 😀
    I’ve never tried the MUR Lip Kits before because I’d heard they were pretty sticky and didn’t want to pay full price just for a lipliner x)
    Thanks for this amazing review ! I’m yet to try the Kylie lip kits… So expensive though. Ugh.

    • luxuryblush says:

      haha it can be hard to keep track of what came together and what didn’t! I’ve just googled Pop Up and it looks like such a gorgeous colour! Barry M have some great products and I can’t wait for you to get to London and be able to get it in store! RIP your bank account haha! I have heard mixed opinions on the MUR lip kits, but I personally love them! No problem, thank you for reading! Totally agree on the Kylie ones they are a lot of money!xx
