Kylie Metal Matte Lip Kits - Review

22 June 2016

You’ve probably all heard of Kylie Jenner’s lip kits, they are spoken about all over! Everyone has one, or everyone is waiting to order one in the next batch (which is due this weekend with 2 new blue toned shades ready for the 4th July celebrations in America!) I have seen nothing but good reviews for the original matte shades and I’ve have been loving the look of her new metallic shades. 

So when I was sent 2 of the Metal Matte lip kits, I say kits, but these metallic ones actually just come on their own - without the matching lip liners, I was extremely excited to try them out. 

The Metal Matte collection have the same formula as the matte kits, therefore have long-lasting wear with a very creamy feel. They don't dry out the lips like other matte liquid lipsticks do, and of course, they have a very bold and high impact metallic colour. I was sent 2 out of the 4 shades, Heir and Reign. See the full range here.

Reign is probably my favourite. Its a brown/bronze colour with a hint of red. Obviously this colour is dark, so its probably not a everyday wearable shade for us girls with pale skin, but for a night out or a festival where you want a cold look, its perfect. And for those of you with darker skin, this shade could be worn everyday and on a night out depending on what you're into. 

The second one I was sent was Heir. This shade is a light pink/nude/goldy colour, almost like a rose gold but slightly lighter. From what I had seen online, this is the most wearable shade from the collection, however I disagree on my skin tone. Personally this colour makes me look slightly washed out, however I have seen it on other people and it looks great. This shade is a wearable shade for people with a darker or warmer skin tone as me, I would say. The swatch looks great but its a bit disappointing when I put it on my lips. 

The metallic liquid lipsticks are currently only sold online on Kylie’s Cosmetic website (as with all of her other shades) which you can get to by clicking here. As usual, they're all sold out, however, if you follow Kylie on any of her social media, she keeps everyone updated with when they're restocked and everything. They sell for $18 which is about £12. However there is then shipping to add on and also if you're outside of the USA, there is also import taxes, so the lip kits do end up being around £30-40, or so I’ve heard. 

Swatches of Reign and Heir
There is a few high street companies which are jumping on the metallic band wagon and are bringing out similar shades for a tiny fraction of the price. Currently the only one I have seen in the UK hughstreet is the MUA Luxe Metallic Liquid Lipstick, which is £4, sold in Superdrug (on sale for £2 at the moment!) The shade Blaze is a red/bronze colour so is similar to Reign, here. And there other similar shades in the MUA collection also, including a shimmery black, which is close to the newest in Kylie’s collection, here

If you're wanting to find some hightstreet dupes for the matte lip kits, here in the UK, I have a blog post coming up in the next few days showing you similar shades, all under £7! Keep a look out on my social pages and also here!
