So, by now you are probably aware that Kylie Jenner has unusually bold lips. If one were to make a comparison, one might say they look like deployed airbags wearing lipstick. Because of the mythology around her lips, it was only natural that she’d come out with a line of lipsticks and lip liners. But, they won’t get you her lips.
In fact, the only route to Kylie lips is the Kylie way, which she’s admitted means lip fillers. While sucking on a piece of plastic for a short while may “enhance” your lips (read: make them swollen from restricted blood flow), it won’t permanently give you the kind of volume you’re looking for. Nor will a heavy-handed amount of lipstick and liner.
Kylie’s Lip Kit comes in three shades: “Candy K,” a nude pink; “Dolce K,” a taupe colour; and “True Brown K,” which is as close to Kylie’s natural lip as they come. Each kit ($39) will include both a liner and a lipstick, so you can trace and paint ’em on and try your darndest to emulate her famous lips.
If the brand didn’t say this kit would give you Kylie lips (it does), then we’d think nothing of it. It’d just be a few new lipsticks, which are pretty nice. It’s just the idea that a simple lipstick and liner could give you the Kylie…
“After two long years of dreaming about this, I am so excited to finally share my lip kit with you guys. The Kylie Lip Kit is a collection of shades and products I handpicked with an amazing team to design the perfect ‘Kylie lip,'” she writes. “I can’t wait to see how beautiful everyone is going to look. Use the hashtag #KylieLipKit to share your photos with me.”
It just doesn’t add up.
