Anyone who knows Us knows that it’s a rare occasion to catch us without lipstick on. If we only have time to apply just one thing before leaving the house, it’s always lipstick. (Mascara comes in second!) A good lip draws attention away from any of our skin insecurities or split ends. Even when we are all done up otherwise, our look is never complete until we’ve swiped on a matte, cream, satin or glossy lip shade. Everyone can only imagine our excitement when one of our (and the world’s) favorite brands dropped a new exclusive lip kit at Ulta!
Of course we are talking about Kylie Cosmetics’ Ulta Beauty Matte Lip Kit! We all know that Kylie Jenner is the queen of all things lipstick and we are forever eagerly awaiting her newest drops. With this new kit recently dropping and Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale going on, we’re in makeup heaven right now!
Shoppers already can’t get enough of this lip kit. One called the color “universally flattering” and “beautiful,” so no need to fret about if this lip will match our skin and lip tone! Another said this is “one of the best by Kylie,” noting how the color doesn’t fade or transfer even when eating or drinking. One thing we look for in a liquid lip is a clean application, and one beauty lover assured that this kit has the “easiest application ever.” Of course, compliments are pouring in too, one shopper saying how they “received many compliments on how nice the color is” when they wore it to work!
This new lip kit features a matte liquid lipstick and a creamy lip liner in the never-before-seen “Ulta Beauty” shade. It’s a “warm rosy mauve” that we’d describe as sort of a fire-brick red with hints of brown and a little pink, making it perfect for both everyday wear and special occasions. It may not be a true nude, but that doesn’t mean we can’t treat it like one! Seriously, we are not shy when it comes to lipstick colors, and with this lip kit, we’re thinking plenty of beauty addicts out there will be inspired to wear a little more pigment on a daily basis.
This lip kit is known as the “secret weapon” to achieving the perfect “Kylie lip,” which is a goal for basically every lipstick lover out there. When we’re wearing a color created by the makeup mogul herself, it’s hard to go wrong. As one reviewer said, these products are super easy to apply, so we shouldn’t have to spend an extra 20 minutes every morning wiping the corners of our mouth, reapplying, repeating and wondering if our skin is truly stained or if it has just turned red from the wiping. That’s part of why the lip liner step is so important!
When applying, we first start with the lip liner. It claims to have “ultra-long” staying power so we can rely on it to provide all-day fullness and pigment. A big problem with countless lip liners out there is that when we go to apply them, they’re hard and scratchy, so we feel like we have to press so hard while dragging them across our lips, which just leaves us chapped and irritated. This Kylie Cosmetics lip liner was formulated to be creamy, making for an easy, soft and smooth glide!
Lip liner is super important to use with a liquid lipstick, as it helps everything stay in place all day and lets us more easily achieve the shape we want! Another great thing about this liner in particular is that it’s made to fit in most standard sized sharpeners. Just make sure the blades are sharp!
We then follow up with the liquid lipstick, which has a “high-intensity pigment” and a matte finish. The biggest issue with matte lipsticks is that they tend to be crazy drying, clinging on to every crease of the lip. This long-wearing lipstick, however, contains moisturizing ingredients! When we apply, it claims to give our lips a “comfortable, emollient and silky feel” that won’t end in us running to purchase a lip exfoliant and extra lip balm in the middle of the day.
We are definitely going to explore the monochrome makeup trend using this kit, wearing similar shades on both our cheeks and our eyes for a look that’s simultaneously pretty and fierce. We also think this shade would look great with gold shimmer or blue shadow, which has really taken off over the past few months. Like we said, this color basically works as a unique nude, so don’t be afraid to experiment!
