I finally got my hands on the Kylie’s Birthday collection after the third time I tried, so I thought why not write about this for my first review. Also, most of them will be available in her regular collection ( different packaging than this Birthday collection) which would make this review to be fit for her other products. I love everything from the bundle except the cosmetic bag. I bought the Bundle because it’d take too much time to add everything to the cart, and by the time I finish adding, they’d be all gone (speaking from my experience).
1/ Cosmetic bag : 2/5
So Let’s started with my least favorite: the Cosmetic bag. It’s $42 and in my opinion it’s too expensive for a simple cosmetic bag that you can get as free gift from any cosmetic brands. However, there is some good sides of it. The material is soft and the design is simple so it gained one more point from me. Moreover, it’s big enough to hold lots of makeup if you’re a makeup junkie like me. So 2 points over 5.
2/ Matte Liquid Lipsticks: 4/5
Next, I’d love to talk about the mini liquid lipsticks that everybody was crying for. Basically they’re just different packaging and smaller size. All of the shades you can find from the regular lipstick kit from KylieCosmetics. If you already owned one or more of the liquid lipsticks from this brand, there is nothing else for me to say. And for those who haven’t tried, you should.
Lots of people compare these with Colourpop. I’m sorry to say but it’s so unfair to compare them. Don’t get me wrong, I love Colourpop and personally collect many lippies and liquid lipsticks from their brand. The colors are nice, the texture goes on very well, and they’re affordable for just $6 each. However, the Colourpop’s liquid lipsticks make my lips dry and flaky even after I exfoliated and applied lip balm on. The Kylie’s lipsticks on the other hand work very well on my lips and smell like candy. It’s still a little dry appear at the end of the day, but for whole day long it’s good enough for me. Many people complained about the wand/ applicator, it doesn’t happen to me, so no comment on this yet. Again for $17, it’s not too bad at all compares to Kat Von D, Huda Beauty, or Anastasia Beverly Hills which are $20 each.
3/ Gloss & Metal Matte lipsticks: 3/5
I’m not a fan of gloss, so I barely use the gloss in this collection. However, it seems very nice when I tried to apply it over a matte lipstick; it’d give you shimmery lips. The Metal Matte on the other hand is a beaut, very nice texture, give you a cool look, also it’s o trend now. However, I’m not sure if I want to wear it on regular daily basic,it’d be more for a night time makeup.
4/ Kyliner: 3.5/5
The Gel liner, and the eyeliner pencil kit is new to her collection. I got the brown one, and will get the black one soon. The gel liner doesn’t smudge at all and comes out very natural. But I don’t like the brush, it’s somehow hard to control or to make sharp line. I prefer my own M.A.C liner brush. The pencil is nice and lasts long too, I prefer using it to make a blend eyeliner look.
5/Creme Shadow: 3.5/5
Save the best to the last-creme shadows, I’m in love with these creme shadows. It lasted for whole day, and when I tried to wipe it out, only a very little amount coming off. My favorite shade is the “Rose Gold”. I have been searching for this shade for so long, but was unable to find a good one, this one is perfect. However, one flaw is that the texture is not that easy to apply (that’s why even though it’s my most favorite, I only give it a 3.5/5). I have to use my finger or an applicator that comes with my Chanel gel eyeshadow to apply it on. And I can only do 1 stroke at a time in 1 direction or it’ll dry out and start clotting. So I need practice with this one. Updated: there is one similar to this one from Tom Ford if you want to try from different one.
