So, this post has been a long time coming.
I bought the lip kits one evening on impulse, I’d never had any desire to get them but my love for liquid lipsticks is forever growing and when I saw she was releasing some at midnight one Tuesday I thought it might be fun to see if I could get my hands on some (expensive fun at that!)
Anyway, as you’ve probably guessed by the existence of this post, I was successful in getting my hands on some- I could have had my pick of the lot but showed some restraint and, after having spent the evening researching swatches, I decided upon ‘Dolce K’ and ‘Candy K’
I accidentally put a wrong line in my billing address so half expected them to never turn up, but lo and behold not even a week later they’d arrived (without any extra customs charges I might add!)
So, why’s it taken me so long to get round to posting this? The long and short of it is, I don’t really like them.
I know, revelation!
I’m not kidding when I say I spent the whole evening researching swatches- I know they look different on everyone and I thought I’d seen them on every skin tone possible but obviously not because they just do not work on me- Dolce K looks like I would expect True Brown to, a lot lot darker than I’d seen it look on anyone else and Candy K seem to come off quite grey looking, which also is not fab.
The lip liners are both great, perfect nudes to go under other lipsticks I already own, but the lipsticks themselves have let me down! I’ve played around with them a bit & have tried mixing them with other products I have to no avail so far, but hopefully I’ll find some way of making them work!
Aside from the colours, the formula is great! I haven’t found it to be very drying and the staying power is insane! When I first got them I swatched each one on my hand, was too lazy to take it off so slept with it there and it still hadn’t budged by morning- I had to exfoliate to get them off!
If you’ve bought any let me know! I really like to look of the metals ones and am so tempted to get Posie K and Koko K but after this experience and the fear of being charged extra customs I’m going to wait and hope they start stocking them in the UK before I buy anymore!
