My Visit to the Kylie Jenner Pop Up store and my Review of the Matte Liquid Lipsticks
So I took a trip to the Kylie Jenner Pop Up store in New York City and I am so happy I did!
My husband originally tried to surprise me on the first day that it opened but as you could imagine, the line was down the street and around the corner and there was a line to get to the next line to get to THE line. So we scrapped that idea really quickly.
Fast forward to this Sunday 2/19. My husband had to go to the same area for a couple of things so I thought nothing of being in that area and honestly, I thought the store would have been gone already considering the lines that we saw!
He went right to Mercer street and there it was in all of it's pinkness!! It was an abnormally warm day for us in New York, so with my daughter napping in her stroller, we happily waited in the beautiful warmth for an hour. And I couldn't stop saying thank you to my husband who was waiting in line for so long for me to just buy lipstick!
A lot of the stuff in the store was still available on-line, so I didn't feel like I needed to get THAT much since I knew I could always order online if I wanted to try more colors.
In hindsight, I bought more than I should have since I was not sure how I was going to feel about these given the mixed reviews on the Lip Kits, but being there with the music, makeup and pink stuff everywhere, I was in put in some sort of trance, lol. Besides, I have heard a lot of people say that the formula is the same as the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips and I love those!
Here are the colors I got!
And the verdict is in.......I actually LOVE THEM! I would even venture to say that I like them more than the ColourPop ones, which is huge for me to say! The formula is very thin so they don't feel heavy on the lips and they certainly do not dry my lips out, which is so nice. With the exception of one color (Gorg), all of the Matte Liquid Lipsticks I tried went on smoothly and had a great opacity to them with just one application. Gorg was very streaky on it's own but on top of a lip liner, it was much better. I haven't tried any other Kylie Jenner products like her shadows, blushes or cream liners. If you have, let me know what your thoughts are in the comments, maybe I will try them!
Thanks for taking the time to visit the blog today!
Until next time, Love Peace and Smoky Eyes,
