First Impressions: Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits in Posie K, Candy K & Autumn


I FIIIINAALLYYY got my hands on these! Seriously, these lip kits have been in demand ever since Miss Kylie Jenner tweeted about them. In this blog post, you’re going to read all about how to order Kylie Cosmetics in Canada and my first impressions of the products I ordered. Let’s just say these lip kits definitely had an impact on my daily life…and I’ve only had them for a week now (shook much?).

The Online Order Process: So when I went on to, I didn’t know what to expect at all. I had heard that this company could barely keep releases restocked because of the demand. In fact, these were so hard to get that fake lip kits began to circulate for crazy prices and Kylie Jenner was NOT impressed. Once on the website, I noticed the best phrase for any online shopper “Free International Shipping on orders more than $60” and that my friends is what convinced me to place an order. As I was browsing through her website (she’s got A LOT of products), I gravitated towards the matte lip kits because of the value and popularity. I picked 3 kits and proceeded to checkout. All the prices are in USD and Kylie Cosmetics won’t cover the cost of any duty fees that might occur when it reaches your destination. Since I live in Canada, I wasn’t sure if I would encounter any of that…but that didn’t stop me from ordering these! These lip kits retail for $29 USD (I ordered 3…it cost me about $100 CDN..#broke).


The Shipping Process: Once my order went through, the kits were shipped roughly 3 days after. One thing I’m incredibly impressed with was how the Kylie Cosmetics team handles the shipping process. When your order is processed, you get notified via email. When your oder is shipped, you get notified via email with your shipping code directly linked to the postal service they use. There was one thing that kind of freaked me out when my order was shipped. Initially, the team said that my order would take anywhere from 21-28 days to reach my destination…which kind of appalled me because Canada is not THAT far away lol. Also, the Canadian dollar rate is kind of wonky so I ended up paying a lot more for these kits. So I was a little bummed out. But two weeks (exactly from my order date) later, I received an email saying your shipment has been delivered. I was so incredibly excited and shocked that I genuinely was jumping up and down (judge away).


The Package: OHKAYYY KYLIE. These lip kits came in an all black box. When I opened the box, the Kylie Cosmetics logo was at the top of the box. The package included my 3 lip kits (duh), my shipment receipt and a post card from Kylie Jenner thanking me for purchasing these (not going to lie I know it’s probably photocopied but like…whatevs fan girl moment). I definitely love the whole idea behind the packaging!


The Lip Kits: I purchased the lip kits in Candy K, Autumn and Posie K. Posie K won Allure’s best of 2017 lipsticks so this was a kit I really wanted. I would describe it as a mauvey nude pink. Next, I went with Candy K because the swatches online looked really pretty. Plus, I wanted a shade I could wear daily to work. I would describe this shade as the perfect nude for my skin tone. Lastly, I went with Autumn because I liked the name. No lie. That was the only reasoning behind it and I’m not disappointed at all. Autumn is like a brick browny red nude (lol). That’s the best I can describe it! All these lip kits come with the liquid lipsticks and a liner.

First impressions: I’ve had them almost a week and I’ve tried all three shades and so far I’m impressed. That’s all I’m going to say for now until I post an in-depth review in a few weeks. Stay tuned in the next few weeks for more on this.


Overall Impressions of Kylie Cosmetics: I’m really impressed that the youngest KarJenner child knows how to run a business successfully. I also loved how easy it was to order these from Canada and I highly recommend everyone give these kits a try at some point in their life!


Review: Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Spanked, S1ngle & Candy Venom


Okay, I know if you read this blog on the reg…then you’re already aware that Fenty Beauty has very quickly become my favourite beauty brand of all time. Every product I try, I am instantly impressed. From their face primer to their countour sticks and everything in between, RiRi knows whats good.


What is it: A super slim matte lipstick that is super comfortable on the lips, long wearing, super pigmented and super weightless. I picked up the shades Spanked, S1ngle & Candy Venom. Candy Venom is a bright magenta pink (SO gorg). Spanked is a nude dusty rose colour and S1ngle is descried as a blushing nude. Can I also say, the names of these lipsticks are too good!


The Good: Y’all my lips have never been so blessed (LOL). Seriously, I don’t think I’ve felt this way about a lipstick release in a LONG time. The formula of these lipsticks are incredible. When you apply it, it almost feels as though the lipstick is hugging your lips. It’s soft and not heavy at all. In fact, there have been times when I’ve had any of these 3 shades on and I’ve forgotten I’m wearing lipstick. The colour pay off is fantastic. One swipe and you get the colour without any fuss. For a matte lipstick, these are SUPER creamy. It’s really moisturizing and I’m all about this. The packaging is also one of my favourites, especially for travel. It’s super skinny and will fit literally anywhere without feeling bulky. Spanked is perfect for a night out with the girls or date night. S1ngle is great for work or on those days you just want something on your lips without any hassle. Candy Venom is perfect for nights out when you want to make your presence known without trying hard! These products are pretty long wearing on the lips. I’ll be honest, I don’t think it compares to Stunna Lip paint BUT these do stay on your lips for a while. You will need to reapply it but not more than maybe once (that’s all I needed to get through a whole day at work). I also want to point out the design of the lipstick itself. It’s designed to be easy to apply on your lips without needing to use a lip liner. How you ask?  Apply normally to the bottom lip and then turn the lipstick with the short end up to apply to your upper lip. Trust me it works. Lastly, the price of these lipsticks are great. $23 (CDN) is a steal for beauty brand that’s doing incredibly well!

The Bad: N-O-T-H-I-N-G!

Overall Rating: 10/10 (I can’t WAIT to grab more shades! You can pick yours up at your local Sephora)

Review: Stila Cosmetics Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Kitten Karma and Rose Gold Retro


I honestly believe that whenever you’re making an entrance, glitter bombs should go off (I can dream right?). Anyways, enough about my glitter dreams…this post is all about Stila Cosmetics’ Glitter & Glow liquid shadows. Read on to find out!


What is it: The best way to describe this is this: This is liquid glitter in a bottle. I picked up the shades Kitten Karma and Rose Gold Retro. Kitten Karma is filled with champagne, copper and silver glitter. Rose Gold Retro is a mixture between rose gold (duh!) and silver glitter specks. These babies are meant to sparkle your eyelids without being troublesome. Stila describes it as a perfect blend of pearl and glitter to leach your lids with incredible luster and shimmer. It doesn’t promise NO fallout, but it does say that you can expect minimal fallout.


The Good: My glitter dreams are coming true. If you want the PERFECT halo eye, this is THE only product for you. Kitten Karma is officially my favourite shade of glitter (yes I know I just called glitter a shade). I have never seen such a perfect champagne colour in my life! Rose Gold Retro is beautiful too. In fact, even though I love Kitten Karma, I’ve used Rose Gold Retro more and I’m incredibly impressed. The formula of these are fantastic. I find that with a lot of glitter eyeshadows tend to be chunky…but not these! The formula is so smooth! It’s super lightweight on your eyes, there isn’t a grainy texture. When I apply it, it glides on. It doesn’t dry instantly BUT when it does, blending other shadows around it is a breeze! Nothing moves! I’ll get into the fallout in the next part of this post (keep reading). These retail for $31 CDN and I am not going to lie, I can’t wait to pick up some of the more bold and bright colours! These eyeshadows are SO pigmented and no matter how much you build on the colour, it doesn’t feel heavy nor chunky! The applicator is super soft and very easy to maneuver.


The bad: Okay, this is not the worst thing but this product does have fallout. It’s not a lot compared to others but there is a little bit. I find that the best way to avoid any fallout from these is to apply an eye mask while you do your eyes (or you can tape half of a cotton round). But other than that, nothing was wrong with these. In fact, this doesn’t affect my overall rating of these products!

The swatches are below in normal light, flash and direct daylight. The top shade is Rose Gold Retro & the bottom is Kitten Karma. Scroll down below to see my overall rating!



Overall Rating: 9/10 (pick yours up at a Stila retailer. I got mine from Ulta!)

Review: MILK MAKEUP Blur Stick


When I tried this at Sephora, I was stunned. I mean, if it can make my hand look like it had an instagram filter on it, then it for sure will do wonders for my face….right?


What is it: This blur-stick by Milk Makeup is exactly what it says it is…a blur stick. It’s a silicone free solid that is meant to minimize the appearance of fine lines, pores and any imperfections. As the creators say, it gives you a smooth invisible matte finish on every skin tone. You can use it as a primer. It’s colourless and a universal face filter. It’s oil-free as well, making it perfect for combination oily skin. You can purchase it at Sephora for $43 (CDN).


The Good: So when I tried this on my face the first time, I noticed something. The stick wasn’t creamy at all. In fact, it was a lot drier than I thought. So you definitely need to warm the product up on your hands before you apply on your face. I love the idea of the primer/blur stick being a stick because it’s super easy to apply. When I applied it on my face, I saw that it definitely did blur it out for a soft focus finish. It didn’t completely eliminate my pores but I mean I haven’t come across a product that does that completely yet (do you guys know any?). This product is good on its own…but I have combination oily skin, so it worked for me. I love pairing it with the Benefit Porefessional and then wearing a foundation on top. I found that it gave me the best “air brush” results. I love the packaging and the whole concept of this product.


The Bad: I’m not sure how anyone with dry skin will be able to make this work because it definitely was not creamy. If you just apply it straight from the stick (without warming it), then your makeup will cake because the formula is super dry. If you have oily skin, then this primer is for you! Other than that, I wouldn’t tell anyone to write this product off just yet. I have combination oily skin and it worked fine for me. This is a product you definitely want to try at some point but you won’t be completely missing out if you don’t want to (LOL).

Overall Rating: 8/10
