My disaster with Kylie Lip Kit in True Brown K

KYLIE LIP KIT TRUE BROWN K DISASTER

Curiosity scammed the cat. Once upon a time, I loved the Kardashians. I loved watching their show and gossiping about them with my friends. I've realized now that they are very problematic and I stopped supporting them- that is until now. When Kylie released her lip kits I was interested but I didn't buy any because I didn't want to support the KKs. Not to mention, Kylie Lip Kits are expensive and I didn't have Kylie Lip Kit money! 

When Kylie announced that she will sell her liquid lipsticks separately, curiosity got the best of me. I had been lusting after True Brown K for the longest and I figured it was the best time to try it. The liquid lipsticks retail for $17 plus shipping, the total came out to about $25 (more reasonable than $40). Her products seem to be selling out a bit slower so the whole shopping experience was fine. Handling was quick and my order was shipped on time. I even got my package a day before tracking said it would arrive so you could imagine I was very happy.

The presentation is lovely, I must admit. I guess that's where $7 shipping goes towards. The packaging is a discrete black box as there were many complaints that customer's boxes were being stolen because people could identify them. It is worth noting that a box may be a little too excessive for just a liquid lipstick- a small package would suffice. 

Moving on to the actual product....
I was too busy taking pictures of the box and packaging to notice the major flaw of my lipstick.
I opened the lipstick and it made a mess. I got product on my hands etc. I realized that my liquid lipstick was missing the stopper and that's why it was so messy.

I emailed Kylie Cosmetics ASAP and it took a few days to get a response. I was a little shocked that I got a response as this isn't the first time they sold a lipstick without a stopper. However, those customers claimed that Kylie Cosmetics customer service didn't help them and did not offer to send them a replacement. Kylie Cosmetics is sending me a replacement lipstick so I'm very happy about that.

Despite the fact that they are trying to remedy the issue, it is apparent that they don't have much quality control due to the fact of several issues that they've had (i.e lip gloss wands, empty packages, defective product, half empty product etc)

Formula wise, True Brown K is very pigmented and doesn't settle too much in my lip lines. True Brown K also sets quickly but not too fast so you have time to apply the product on your lips. I don't find them very drying but the formula does remind me of Colourpop's Ultra Matte liquid lipsticks in a sense. 

Overall, this mishap with Kylie Cosmetics turned me off from buying any more of her lipsticks. I like True Brown K and the price isn't too expensive. I do believe that this lipstick is nice as I love the shade but I don't find it to be anything extraordinary.

I filmed a video about this lipstick:


Have you tried any of Kylie's Lip Kits?
What are your thoughts?
