Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Liquid Lipstick in “RAD” Review & Swatch-
I am finally reviewing the most worldwide famous brand of Kylie Jenner. Initially she took over the world with her Instagram and now her cosmetic range is too famous that within minutes her entire 21st Birthday collection was sold out. Luckily, I got my hands on the Hello 21 mini set. So from now on I will be reviewing one by one all the lip shades that are present in this amazing set by Kylie Cosmetics. I placed an order form India and received it like a month later. Also we need to pay a certain amount of tax which will not be mentioned in the final bill by their official website. You wouldn’t find any shop in US that sells Kylie Cosmetics, until and unless its a pop-up shop. The best way to save taxes is to place an order in US probably any relatives or friends and then wait for them to come to India. However if you are a makeup freak like me, then please place the order ASAP:p The shade that I will be reviewing today is RAD(dark tangerine). Read on to find out my review on this shade!
What Kylie Cosmetics Says:
RAD Velvet Liquid Lipstick from the KOURT X KYLIE collection, the new collaboration from Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner for Kylie Cosmetics.
The Velvet Liquid Lipstick has high intensity pigment for a full coverage lip. This long wearing, ultra pigmented liquid lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients that glide on for a creamy matte look that does not dry down.
Price: $16 for 3.25 ml
My take on the Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Liquid Lipstick in “RAD”-
All Kylie lip products come in same packaging and are quite famous for it. The shade comes in a glass tube with a large black cap. With the gap, an applicator is attached that has good bristles that gives a very precise application of the shade. Overall the packing is quite sturdy and travel friendly.
The shade RAD is a velvet liquid lipstick. The texture of velvet lipsticks are quite unique and intact user friendly. The product gives a semi-matte texture without makes the lips dry or flaky. It is excellent for people who hate the matte texture that makes the lips dry and chapped especially during winters.However I never forget to use a good lip balm under this, as it protects my lips form the chemical ingredients, but I don’t use any primer after that.
The lipstick lasts as long as long 24 hours! Literally it does last this long. However I it transfers a lot! Which was quite disappointing for me. You definitely need a good lip makeup remover while pulling it off before sleeping.
The only reason these lip shades are hyped and won a lot of prizes is because of the unique lip colours that the brand offers. RAD is lovely combination of red and orange. People who are not huge fans of putting red or orange, would really like this combination. I think this shade goes with all skin tones. With minimal eye makeup, this lip shade enhances my complexion. Overall this is my current favourite party wear shade.
