I Never Thought I'd Obsess Over Kylie Lip Kits, But Now I'll Never Use Anything Else
I used to roll my eyes when I saw posts about girls trying to get their hands on the coveted Kylie Lip Kits.
I didn't understand why they would go to such great lengths to procure a celebrity-backed makeup product. I assumed it was all Kylie Jenner-driven and that the products couldn't beat the hype. Everything changed during the holidays last year when I received my first ever Kylie matte liquid lipstick. This one product completely converted me and I will forever be a fan of Kylie's products!

My gateway was a color from the Koko Kollection. This limited set of super high-pigmented matte liquid lipsticks were part of a collaboration Kylie did with her sister Khloe Kardashian, who is known for her bold lips. I was headed to a party and almost out the door when I realized I forgot to perk up my puckers. I was about to make my back to my room when I realized I had left my gift box that contained the Koko Kollection liquid lipstick by the front door. Instead of running all the way back to my bedroom, I quickly grabbed it and ran out. Little did I know my life was about to change!
I applied the shade in the car and immediately realized this wasn't your regular run-of-the-mill lip gloss. The color was really saturated and it painted my lips the same exact shade that was on the tube. I was also pleasantly surprised by the yummy smell. I'm not used to noticing a smell on my lipstick and this immediately caught my attention. The gloss' texture made it go on smooth and even.
I ate and pressed my lips to beverages all night at this party. I came home and realized that the gloss shade was almost as vivid as when I applied. I must've forgotten that I reapplied right? Not the case! Didn't reapply even once and my lips were as fresh as when I arrived to the party. I settled on the couch and turned on the TV to finish the night in the comfort of my home. You can imagine my surprise when I woke up on the couch the next day. I chastised myself for not heading to my room sooner and walked over to the bathroom to brush my teeth. Again! There it was! Kylie's lip gloss in all of its fervor and as bright as ever. I knew then that I am in for life.
Now I'm one of those freaks who is constantly checking for color updates on Kylie's Instagram. I can't wait to try every single shade, and I warn you, if you aren't a Kylie believer, try to hold out, because once you get her amazing, long-lasting formula on your lips, you will never go back to your old lipsticks!
