Kylie Lip Kits for under $10 (purchased on eBay) review + swatches!



 Kylie Jenner's lip kits have taken instagram by storm, with kits selling out in under 5 minutes. When I heard people speaking highly of the eBay kits, which retailed for less then $5 naturally I was curious enough to jump online and order myself a few!


 I ordered two Kits, one in 'Posie K' and one in 'Dolce K', two of the lines most popular colours. 
After two weeks of waiting, two of the (rather crushed) signature white boxes showed up on my doorstep. 
(L) Posie K, (R) Dolce K
Each Kit contains a matte liquid lipstick and a co-ordinating lip liner, designed to make perfect lips a breeze. While the Kits sold on Kylie's lip kit are known for their pigmentation and longevity, the eBay versions differ greatly. The packaging was spot on but unfortunately that's where the similarity's end. 

Posie K

Dolce K
As you can see in the swatches, the colours differ greatly not only from the original Lip Kits, but also just from each other. Rosie K was the closest match of the two, however the liner gave off barely any pigmentation. The Dolce K liner was significantly better, and quite creamy, however it's in a completely different colour spectrum to the liquid lipstick. 

This is definitely and instance where the mantra 'you get what you pay for' rings true, and although the savings were fantastic (dolce K was $3.20 and purchased here while Posie K was $4.93 from here)  the product received was a clear reflection of the price. Additionally when purchasing from eBay you run the risks associated with unknown ingredients, so remember be careful as you're purchasing at your own risk!
