Kylie Jenner Ruined My Life

I t s  b e e n  m o n t h s  n o w  since the first release of the Kylie Jenner Lip kits and I still haven’t managed to get my hands on a single colour from her collection and boy am I frustrated ! Although I still stalk her Kylie Cosmetic’s Instagram page to try and find out when the next drop of products will be available Ive had to find some substitutes for the perfect liquid lip, so here are my top picks for matte liquid lip products.


(In no particular order) Im going to start with Rimmel London’s “Provocalips” 16 hour liquid lipstick in the shade 700 Skinny Dipping. This product has amazing staying power well over 16 hours, I wore this to work one day and then out to dinner and I’d honestly forgotten I had it on because I didn’t have to re-apply it once.

The “Provocalips” lip kit comes with the colour at one end (base coat) and a moisturising gloss (top coat) at the other, its a dual stick with product at each end. With this product I wouldn’t suggest applying the top coat as it tend’s to make the product stay for only 3-4 hours compared to the full 16 hours when applied alone without the top coat. However your lips will become dry throughout the day so I recommend giving your lips a scrub as well as a coat of lip gloss an hour or so before use, this will help combat dryness later in the day.

Both the base coat and top coat come with a dofa applicator making it easy and precise when applying this product. The smell of this liquid lip kit is slightly chemically but as soon as it dries on your lips the smell goes away.

Last year Too Faced launched a range of Melted Liquified Long Wearing Lipstick and I picked up the shade “Melted Sugar”. I wouldn’t quite agree about this product being long wearing compared to some of the other liquid lip products I’ve used but it does last around 3-5 hours depending on how often you eat and drink, however you’ll find that this product will have to be re-applied after meals.

Due to the wear time of this product it is a lot more comfortable on the lips giving minimal dryness throughout the day, this product wears more like a matte lipgloss. The reason I love this product is the colour and the feel that it offers on my lips, the colour is a soft muted out nude with a hint of pink and I love it.

This next product is the most affordable out of all of them and might be my favourite ! Sportsgirl recently brought out a range of liquid lipsticks with a matte finish and called them Lip chalks and they’re amazing. The two colours Im in love with at the moment are Sandstorm and Duchess, these two colours fit into the Kylie Jenner theme perfectly, Sandstorm being a nude with brown undertones and Duchess being a dusty pink.

Not only do these bad boys last 5-8 hours on the lip but they also smell amazing, these lip chalks are nowhere near as drying on the lips as the Rimmel “Provocalips” and is much more comfortable to wear throughout the day.

The next lip product is a little more on the expensive side and is the Lipfinity from Max Factor in the shade 190 Indulgent, this shade can be compared to the shade True Brown from Kylie Jenners collection, it has a dark vampy meets 90s themed lip colour and it stays on all day and even last until the next day its that good !


Due to its intense staying power it does make your lips a little dry and uncomfortable throughout the day but they have paired it with a moisturising lip balm to help combat dryness. Unlike the Rimmel formula the max factor lip balm does not alter the staying power of this product so go ahead and use this balm whenever needed.

Staying Power: 10/10

Comfortability on the lips: 8/10

Colour: 8/10

Overall result: 8/10
