After some scepticism about the cost including imports tax and postage, I finally bit the bullet. I’m not a Kardashian/Jenner devotee, and as such purely bought this because I had seen Kylie Jenner’s lipsticks being regarded highly in reviews.
Let’s discuss the price point first- A lip kit, single, posted to be would have worked out at nearly £40, so it was a better option to get the entire Koko Kollection for which I paid £55. The collection does not come with lip liners, but I own plenty of lip liners in similar shades anyway so I do not feel overly hard done by.
After steeling myself for the price tag, I was surprised at how quickly it came. It was well packed and not damaged. The box that houses the collection is pretty and sparkly (can’t complain) and displays the products nicely.
The shades are called Bunny, Baby Girl, Doll and Sugar Plum. Sugar Plum is a gloss and the rest are matte.
The formula seems to be good; the matte lipsticks aren’t too drying (obviously apply a lip balm underneath) and the gloss isn’t too sticky.
I did an experiment and swatched all four shades on my hand before bed. When I woke up none of the matte colours had smudged or budged. Understandably, the gloss had been wiped away. I had a bath in the morning and despite scrubbing my hand the swatches would not budge- I had to scrub again with make-up remover to get rid of them. These are VERY long lasting and transfer-proof lipsticks.
These are very good lipsticks, but the availability is low as there is no official UK stockist. I would pay good money for them, but I think when the postage and taxes are added they are a little too pricey and hard to obtain. There are plenty of easily available lipsticks in the UK that do as good a job for the fraction of the price- such as the Morphe liquid lipsticks.
I think it was worth getting one collection, perhaps just so I could try them and admire their beauty. I don’t think I will be adding more Kylie lipsticks to my collection until they come to the UK, if they indeed are at all.
8/10. Would be a ten if they were easier to obtain and more cost effective.
