I love liquid lipsticks – love Sephora lip stains, Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipsticks, and Kylie Matte lip kits. Recently, I picked up a few lip kits from Kylie cosmetics and the one I will be reviewing today is “Head Over Heels,” which was part of her Valentine’s collection.
Matte Liquid Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry out your lips.
My Experience with Kylie Head Over Heels Matte Liquid Lipstick:
Kylie liquid lipstick comes in a tube with a transparent font cut-out from where you can see the colour. The name of the shade is printed on the bottom of the tube and the applicator is a standard doe-foot applicator. The lip kit also comes with a lip liner. The bottom of the pencil is color coded and that makes it easy to spot the shade in your stash.
I was not a huge fan of Kylie’s liquid lipsticks because I felt they were very drying on my lips, but after Kylie reformulated her lipsticks, they feel much more comfortable on the lips now. “Head Over Heels” is a beautiful plum shade with purple undertones which would suit any skin tone and is perfect to achieve a bold statement lip.
The consistency of this liquid lipstick is quite thin and pigmented. You need a single swipe to achieve full coverage. I felt the formula on this was improved and the lipstick didn’t settle into fine lines of my lips. This shade was not at all patchy. Kylie lipsticks smells like cake batter, and every time I smell this lipstick, I feel like eating it 😛 It takes less than a minute for the lipstick to dry down completely matte and has a slight tackiness to it, but is definitely transferproof once it’s fully dry.
I wouldn’t say that this lipstick is not drying at all, I still need to add a little balm underneath before application. It does cling on to dry patches of my lips, so I have to scrub and exfoliate properly. “Head Over Heels” lasted for 8 to 9 hours on me and was hard to take off, the best way to take it down is by using olive oil.
The shade that resembles “Head Over Heels” the most is Jeffree Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Androgyny.”
When it comes to Kylie lip pencil, it has the most amazing and comfortable formula that I have tried. It’s a creamy and smooth pencil. It glides on effortlessly without any tug or pull. The lip pencil is very pigmented so you don’t need to go over and over again for coverage. The only thing that I hate about this lip pencil is that the lead of the pencil might be broken inside due to which it keeps on moving back and forth in the pencil. I think that might be because of the creamier formula of the lip pencil.
The shade “Head Over Heels” is a spot on shade to the liquid lipstick. I think it will look stunning on everyone. The thing that you have to keep in mind is that, you need to exfoliate your lips before applying this, since it clings on to the dry patches of the lips. The lip pencil feels very lightweight and comfortable on the lips and doesn’t dry out my lips. Not only the formula gets a thumps up from my side, even the staying power is great. I get 5 to 6 hours of wear time from head over heels alone and with lipstick it lasted an hour more that is maybe 10 hours.
