Of the 3 KHROMA items I received this lip kit definitely looks the most ‘Kardashian’ in my opinion. Kim is famous for her nude pout an I’d imagine hers in the makeup look beauty lovers are coveting most so this was a no brainer for the initial collection, wasn’t it? In the set you have a double ended lip liner/lipstick applicator which alone doesn’t look up to much packaging wise but the application is actually very nice.
They’ve captured that sweet vanilla smell, very reminiscent of MAC lip products and the formula of both the liner and the lip stick are creamy. My only complaint is that the shade really doesn’t suit me but if they offered other shades I would definitely try more from the range. I love the portability of this, very slimline and dual purpose.. great for your handbag or travel.
The lip gloss is where I thought this kit was going to knock my socks off though. The packaging on this is super luxe, they got it just right with the on trend rose gold against the nude glossy colour, just perfect! Unfortunately this was the biggest let down of them all. Online it describes the scent of this at ‘honey’ which describes the otherwise random honeycomb motif emblazoning the tube, this scent is not good! It smells like burnt.. something and is definitely not something you’re going to want sitting under your nose for any length of time.
Why they couldn’t have carried the vanilla through to the gloss I don’t know but it was a massive error in judgement if you ask me. This will be a very popular set but the scent could prove off putting to what should have been their best seller. The product itself it is nice, it’s a sheer glossy neutral which I’d be more likely to wear than the opaque lipstick duo but I just can’t get past the smell. That and the combination of the thin formula and the rough applicator create major streaks, especially when applying over the lip colour! Just an all round disappointment I’m afraid.
I have 2 other items from the KHROMA line to share with you over the next week, the Kardazzle kits (that’s right, kardazzle) in Kourtney and Kim so look out for those coming soon!
