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 kyliecosmetics.com, 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!
