Worth The Hype? Kylie Cosmetics! & A Makeup Look!

So if you read my Kylie Cosmetics Haul you'll know I was so excited to create a look with all these products and review them properly! When I swatched all of the shades onto my arm they looked so pigmented and pretty, I was so excited to see how they came out on my eyelid and with me using a brush, especially the glitter shades!

Look at how pretty all those colours are!!

"Main squeeze" - bottom glitter shade
"Sweet thing" - top peachy shade
both from 'Kiss Me' mini kit.

"Love Letter" - bottom champagne glitter
"baby" - top coral shade
both from 'Sweetheart" mini kit

(From top to bottom)
Bae, HeartBreaker, Make Me Blush, Sweet Like Candy, Love Potion.

(From top to bottom)
Sweet like candy, Love Potion, Be Mine, Heart Eyes, Romance

(From top to bottom)
Romance, Loves Me Not, First Date (blush), Virginity (blush).
See! Look how pigmented and pretty they look, especially 'Bae' the lilac glitter!

Next, the ones I was most excited for, lip kits!! 
I got six mini mattes in the collection, I also got two more mini mattes and two glosses from the mini kits, as well as my candy k lip kit!

Candy K Liner, Candy K, Mary Jo K, Head Over Heels, Dolce K, 
Maliboo, Posie K, High Maintenance, Dirty Peach and Apricot!

Top - Poppin' Gloss
Bottom - Literally Gloss

I was quite impressed from all the swatches on my hand, they seemed so pigmented and I loved the colours. The blushes weren't that pigmented but I expected that as obviously you don't want your blush as pigmented as your eyeshadow.

For this makeup look I wanted to try and do something different as the last look I did was quite pink, you can see that here! But I ended up using burgundy again so it ended up quite pink haha!
I started by running 'loves me not' through my crease and then blended it out in my outer corner. I then took 'heart eyes' and went over the first shade to add more purple tones to it. I then went back with 'love me not' and blended that from the outer v towards the centre of my eyelid! I then used 'Make Me Blush' over that to add some glitter.

Finally I took 'Bae' and put that in the inner corner of my eyelid. I didn't like the abrupt difference in the centre of my eyelid so I took 'Love potion' and blended the two shades together.
I then finished the rest of my face and used 'Bae' and 'Heart eyes' on my lower lash line!

I was very impressed with the pigmentation of these eyeshadows, they blended a lot easier than I thought they would and the colour pay off was fab! The only shade I wasn't impressed with was 'Make Me Blush' all of the other glitter shades are really butters and have amazing colour pay off but this one doesn't, the glitter feels separate from the actual eyeshadow. I don't like it!

I used the 'Virginity' blush and 'Posie K' on my lips!
I am so disappointed in the blush, there is no pigmentation when it goes on your face at all! I put 4 layers of blush on in this shot, 4!! and you can still hardly see it?! very disappointed!
I love 'Posie K' I was very impressed with the lip kits after hearing so many mixed reviews! They're very long lasting and so easy to apply! I didn't find it drying at all, I actually am really impressed with these lip kits!
I also have no idea why I look so orange in the eye shots and then so pale in the full face one hahah!

  16. I am a huge lover of her Lip Kits, I haven't used any of the eyeshadows, but I've heard amazing things about them! It sucks to hear you weren't a big fan of the blushes. I wonder how her highlighters are! Let me know if you decide to get them xxx
