After all the hype going around this liquid lipstick — The Kylie Jenner infamous liquid lipstick, I finally surrender and bought myself one. This liquid lipstick is probably the liquid lipstick of the year 2016, considering all the drama and the struggle to get this one. Well, while its formula maybe not everybody’s cup of tea (somehow a lot of beauty gurus not really a fan of its formula), there are still a lot of people waiting in line to get this particular liquid lipstick despite the pretty high price. So, what do I think of this super famous liquid lipstick?
First and foremost, I have to say that I pleasantly surprise that I freaking love this Exposed colour. It’s a really beautiful warm nude colour that looked perfect for my NC20-25 shade without making me washed out or looking like a sick person. Perhaps, when I bought NYX Lip Suede in Sandstorm, I kinda expect that the colour turned out be like the Exposed one, while clearly it wasn’t.
However, formula wise, I have to say that this Kylie Liquid Lipstick is one of my least favorite amongst all of the liquid lipstick that I’ve ever tried. It settles into lines, cracked the moment when I smiled, and the longevity is just so-so; it’s gone completely after a huge meal. And it was happened when I already exfoliate and moisturize my lip really well. Not to bash or anything, but I’m pretty sure that if you have dry lips, it would accentuate any dry patches.
And I think I have to mention that I already tried to use different lip balm as a base; the waxy one, the gel-like one, any kind of lip balm that I had on hand. Well, perhaps if you have the Kylie Lip Liner on hand and you line and fill your lips entirely with the lip liner first before you apply the liquid lipstick, maybe you can avoid this to happen. But I couldn’t tell since I don’t have the lip liner with me since I rarely use lip liner. I tried to use other nude lipstick and liquid lipstick as a base, but honestly, this Kylie Liquid Lipstick is hard to work with other formulation.
Nevertheless, even though I kinda hate the formulation of this liquid lipstick, I’m still going to use it (and still trying to find a way to avoid cracking) because I freaking love this Exposed shade. It’s the perfect nude tone for me. I’m really glad that I choose the right colour, because I would feel really disappointed if I choose the wrong colour.
So, have you try this Kylie Liquid Lipstick already? What do you think? And, what did you do to avoid cracking through out the day? Did the lip liner really help to avoid cracking? Please tell me all of your trip and tricks in the comment section bellow! 😉
