Kylie Jenner Lip Kits

Okay, I want to first say that I’m not a Kardashian fan.  I have a hard time wrapping my head around a family of people that are famous just for the sake of being famous.  I know that this sentence can apply to a lot of people nowadays. I will admit I have watched the show here and there over the years –  who hasn’t? But for the most part I try to stay as Kardahsian free as possible.

I will give it to Kris Jenner though, she is a marketing genius.  She is clearly the brains and mastermind behind the multi million dollar industry that is all things Kardashian. So with all of that being said, I have tried to not make them any richer by buying apps, perfumes and stay off of the Kylie Jenner lip kit train.

I love matte lipsticks but the formulation usually leaves your lips as dry as the Sierra Desert. I was a big fan of Colourpop.  They had incredible matte colors but they are soooo drying. I usually have to wear Chapstick underneath to keep my lips from drying out.

I had a conversation with some ladies at work that were talking about the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits (KJLK).  These women were women of color (like me) and they were lightweight obsessed with the line.  One even offered to give the other money to buy the kits because she always seems to be on the ball in being able to buy them as soon as they are released.

In case you have been living under a rock (like a was), these kits sell out in MINUTES and crash the internet every time. I had no idea that the struggle to get the KJLKs was that real. One of the ladies at work showed me the 4 or 5 KJLKs that she just happened to have in her purse.  I was shocked. I told her that I had a hard time spending $30 for a lip gloss and liner but she explained that the quality is top notch.  She also said that they do not dry your lips out and that it last for hours.

I decided to do some research of my own.  So I followed them on Instragram (@kyliecosmetics) and watched a bunch of YouTube videos of how they look on WOM (women of color).  With me being a brown skinned girl, I wanted to see how compatible her shades were.  I was shocked at how a lot of her shades look good on many complexions.  I heard nothing but rave reviews. I discovered that you have to pretty much stalk the Instagram page or have her app to find out when the releases and restocks happen.  You had better be on her site at least 5 minutes before time to buy in order to make a purchase.

So . . . . . I bit the bullet.  Yes, I bought Kourt K, a beautiful plum shade. I will let you know what I think about it after I receive it.

NEWSFLASH:  There is a sale on Monday at 1 pm PST on the Holiday Edition shades. I will be on the computer trying to snag these puppies 5-10 minutes before the sale starts. Wish me luck. Let me know if you have tried these cosmetics and your thoughts. Are they worth the hype? Are they the best and most comfortable mattes ever?

BUYER BEWARE: How I got duped by a perfume company and how I got my money back

Well most of you know by now that I LOVE perfume.  Well, I fell for a company that claimed that they sold legitimate fragrances for up to 80% off.  I know, you’re thinking “you fell for that?”.  Yes, I did.  I got burned but I also got vindication.

Check out my video to see what happened:
