This is a traditional cream lipstick in a tube as opposed to the liquid lipsticks Kylie is known for. In general, I fare better with this sort of lipstick. I have a drawer of liquid lipsticks from various brands that I have given up on because I couldn't get past the crusty look or drying feel. However, I will give Kylie Cosmetics credit for coming up with the Velvet Liquid Lipsticks. I own one of those in Low Key that I find extremely comfortable to wear, and the color (a pale coral nude) is flattering on my skin tone. (I wear NC20 in MAC.) But back to Crush.Crush is a gorgeous mid-tone strawberry pink with a hint of coral. I have MAC Costa Chic which is lighter, brighter, and has a frost finish. Crush has no shimmer at all. It's not as bold or peachy as Costa Chic, so it is one of those easy-to-wear, office-appropriate shades.It smells delicious. It reminds me of strawberry vanilla cupcakes, or something equally sweet. Pigmentation is generous. On application it glides easily across the lips. Because this is a tube lipstick and not a liquid, it will transfer to cups and straws, but certainly no worse than most of my other lipsticks which are not kiss-proof, either. I get opaque coverage and it does not feel heavy on the lips. I like the formula of Creme Lipstick enough that I'm planning to try other colors.As Crush gradually wears off, it leaves behind a bit of a stain on my lips but I don't mind that because it adds to the staying power. I do not find staining to be annoying unless I'm swatching lots of different colors of lipstick in a row and need to see the true color of each one. If I am wearing the same color all day long, it can save me from having to re-apply as frequently. (Olive oil will remove the lingering lipstick stain.)When the bullet is brand new, it has a lovely keen point on the tip that makes it easy to get a nice, clean line without using a lip liner. Over time, with lots of use, this will wear down, but it is nice while it lasts.This particular casing is matte black plastic with a matching cap. The logo is in silver along the base. It's not my favorite lipstick packaging but it's certainly fine. Some of the photos on Kylie's site show the Creme Lipsticks in silver tubes. Kylie Cosmetics is now available at ULTA, where I purchased this lipstick for $17 and tax. ULTA stores do not seem to carry the full line. When I went to the Kylie Cosmetics web site, I saw bronzers, blushes, eyeliners, and lip colors that were not at my ULTA.

I don’t understand why people love these lip kits... I bought the charm color. Overall, it was a dried out my lips. The color is bland and sheer, not what I expected. These kits are cheap quality. Look somewhere else.

A latecomer to Kylie Jenners' brand but finally tried it out for myself. I wanted a matte lip color so I chose Posie K from the endless shades on her site. This one won an award by Allure back in 2017 and seemed like a safe entry level choice for me. Turned out to be a really good choice!The first thing that struck me was the packaging...exceptionally well done, from the box it came in to the 'thank you' card in it which has Kylie's brand print on the reverse, almost like an art piece you could display somewhere. I love it! I rarely give 5 lippies for packaging but this is one of those exceptions.In here you get one matte liquid lipstick and a matching pencil lip liner. Finally the days of trying to find a lip liner in the EXACT shade of my lipstick are truly over! The lipstick itself, despite being a matte is very hydrating and doesn't dry out my lips at all. It lasts more or less the whole day too with very little transfer. The only slight touch up I've had to do was on the corners of my mouth where it didn't make it past repeated contact with my drinking glass (still, I got several hours of drinking out of it before needing to apply). The color itself is gorgeous and compliments me nicely, I can instantly see why this won an award. The only thing to be aware of is that this shade is actually a touch darker than what it shows online. I don't know if that's specific to Posie K or whether it's with all the shades but personally I don't mind that at all. In fact I'm so impressed with this one that I've already ordered a few more to try out. At $29 for the liner/lippie kit it's not cheap but the quality and overall experience has been great so far, so why not!Selena x~ My HG list ~(As I've sampled 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, I thought it might be useful to share my top 10 must-have products, subject to change if and when I come across something more effective.

The Take Me On Vacation eyeshadow palette was introduced in summer 2017, and it is still in stock on the Kylie Cosmetics site. In the palette you get sixteen powder eyeshadows: First Class (matte pastel lavender), Sea Breeze (matte soft sand), Summer '17 (metallic peachy gold), Coconut (matte warm taupe), Pina Colada (matte true yellow), Paradise (metallic copper gold), Starfish (matte soft papaya), On The Rocks (matte grey lavender), Island Girl (metallic bright teal), Sunset (satin red copper), Sail Away (metallic deep gold), Spray Tan (matte midtown brown), Aloha (matte pastel peach), Luxury (metallic ruby bronze), Palm Tree (matte deep brown), and Surf Board (metallic sea green). You also get a double ended blending brush.I think that the shadows here are okay in that they are pretty & complementary. This palette can be used for a variety of complete eye looks going from a nude look, to conservative office looks, all the way to night/party time louder & experimental looks, so this palette is very wearable .- a major plus for something at this price-point. The mattes are more powdery compared to the ones in the I Want It All palette so there is more fallout, but even so I find the blendability to be greatly improved over the earlier shadows from the brand that I own [Christmas 2016 and Valentines 2017]. I haven't used a primer to see how well the shadows hold up, and whilst the colours do fade, there hasn't been much creasing with 9+ hours of wear. As for the brush; the end with the shorter bristles did the job of packing shadow on the lid okay, but the longer bristles on the other end are too floppy and made applying the shadow with neatness difficult [see messy crease in my pic]. I prefer the feel, weight and ease-of-use of my Real Techniques brushes by far, and am highly unlikely to try any brushes that Kylie Cosmetics may release in the future.On to the downsides for Take Me On Vacation; my main issue is with the pigmentation on the shades; it's a big step down from the brand's I Want It All palette, The Purple Palette and the Royal Peach palette. I found that none of the deeper shades [Spray Tan, Palm Tree, Luxury & Surfboard are the worst] apply as dark and/or as vibrant as they appear in the pan - though I found the light shade First Class is the worst pigmentation-wise, as it applies as a white. The poor pigmentation combined with the colour fade that I mentioned above, means that a lot of the shades end up muddying together over the day - very frustrating when I spend ages applying the poorly pigmented shadows satisfactorily.The shade Pina Colada is the only shadow in the palette that I outright dislike to the point of not using it any more, as it is sheer, very dry and crumbly - I've only used the shade twice and there is a considerable dip in the pan, as it is so powdery that it just flakes into pieces. Also; the shade names aren't printed on the palette. This niggle doesn't effect the actual products in any way so I don't mean to make a big deal about it, but it's something that irritates me because I like to know exactly what I'm wearing. It's very short sighted for a social media brand to to make such a minor fix for presentation. I'm going to advise giving the palette a miss, as the price you see on screen is already too much for the iffy product quality, and then there is shipping, and tax & customs to be added = we're going past the 'medium to low-high' palette price point, and are talking a "let's go to Selfridge's and hit the makeup counters" higher level price range (in the UK anyway), which is a level of quality that this palette just not does not have.

This is my fave concealer. I purchased it when they had the 2 for 30 thing going on as well. this looks so smooth on the skin and wears well (doesn't slide or dry skin out). i mainly use it on my face to cover blemishes and it works great for that. the coverage is a good medium and can be built up easily. i have it in the shade bone and i'm on the lighter side of nc15/fenty 120 and this is just a tad too peachy for me, but it blends out fine. if i had gotten the shade shell it would have worked for undereyes as well. i think they did a good job with the lighter shades (can't really speak for the darker ones, but the range looks inclusive)texture wise this reminds me of the nars concealer. it's thinner but sits on the skin in a similar way.
