So you know I did a review on the Kylie ultra glow pigments I got from her summer vacation collection, which you can read here I absolutely loved them and I was lucky enough to get the Wet set palette and the send me more nudes velvet lip set so I just wanted to do a little post to round-up the collection and if it was worth it as I’m not sure, but I have a feeling these will be making another appearance sometime soon, either in a restock or maybe a permanent item, you never know with Kylie.
I said how much I loved the ultra glows, I am totally obsessed with them and have been using them every day since I got them! So when I managed to order the wet set and velvets I felt so lucky as it literally sold out In minutes. It took about 2 weeks to arrive I believe which is pretty standard of Kylie cosmetics and I had a £27 custom fee eeek, I know its expensive but really the VAT was only £19 which isn’t too bad considering I got free international shipping, I hate that royal mail add-on the £8 fee it’s so annoying. But I actually really love this collection and all the products so I’m not even mad about it. Hands down I think this is the best Kylie collection so far, I love everything about the products I have, the packaging is also one of her best. I feel like she’s really stepped up her game with this one!
First off lets talk about this wet set illuminating palette, isn’t it just sooo gorgeous!! the packaging is to die for, like I said hands down her best collection and packaging so far, the nude and gold is dreamyyyy!! and also looks so nice on display. ( Because ya know I just love displaying my makeup)
This and the ultra glows was what I wanted the most, because I dont own enough highlighters already ha! but I am a sucker for a highlighter especially cream formulas as I find these are perfect for dry skin and to apply all over the body. when I saw Kylie swatching this on snapchat I was drooling not going to lie, it looked insane, but then she announced the price $62 yes $62 for four highlighter shades, I did cry a little bit, but I hadn’t ordered any Kylie stuff for quite a while and I am a sucker for her LE collections so I thought sod It I just wont eat this month, because makeup is obviously more important to me ha ha!
But let me tell you when it arrived I was actually shocked how big and sturdy it was, It is really heavy and the pans are actually big so I do think in a way the $62 is reasonable. I know it has got a lot of stick for it being a dupe for colourpop highlighters, I actually own a lot of colourpop highlighters and let me be totally honest here, because I always am, when I first felt it I did feel like the consistency was very similar to CP although Kylie’s one feels so much softer and cooler to touch, like you can press on it and it will leave a finger print indent, whereas the CP ones are still soft but definitely not as soft or delicate as Kylie’s are, I also find Kylie’s more intense, like one swatch and I was blown away! They do apply a bit like the CP ones, I think using your finger is easier as some brushes dont pick up the product but it applies beautifully and really blends into the skin.
I feel like these swatches dont even do it justice, privacy please and do not disturb are definitely my favourites. Unbothered and get away are also beautiful but more for darker skin tones and do look really similar in shade, although get away is slightly more bronze whereas unbothered is a typical gold.
Unbothered is a rose gold.
Get A Way is a deepened champagne gold.
Do Not Disturb is a pinky silver.
Privacy Please is a silvery champagne.
Next up we have the Send me more nudes velvet lip set, now this was a last minute decision because I had watched so may videos on it, oops, I really need to stay off youtube, but everyone is literally raving about the velvets and how they’re so much better than the mattes, now I love her matte liquid lipsticks so I knew I had to try these, plus I love nudes so I was more drawn to this set then I was the KKW set as they were to pinky for me.
Again the packaging is just beautiful, I love the gold and nude camo, and the frosted glass and nude lids. Each shade is so wearable for me and they can all be mixed together, I have been mixing bare with naked or birthday suit a lot and I love it. I can totally see what all the fuss is about, the velvets are hands down better than the mattes, if you dont like a liquid lipstick or you find matte lipsticks to drying you will love these, they still dry down matte but they are so moisturising and feel amazing on the lips. I’m hoping she brings all her shades out in these as I am a big fan!!
Each shade is so wearable and looks gorgeous, naked and birthday suit look quite similar here but birthday suit is very peachy also a lighter shade to exposed. I love them all and have been wearing them nonstop.
I’m so happy with the items I decided to get and really glad I gave in and got them, for once I dont feel disappointed or let down by any of the collection like I have done with previous LE collections I have got. I know some of you might be thinking whats the point in the post as I know all these items are sold out But I just have a feeling we will see them again and I couldn’t not share with you what I was loving.
*update* parts of this collection has just been restocked and Kylie is also coming out with her birthday collection but can you believe it nothing actually grabs me!
