Blink and you’ll miss it. Just last week we had begun penning a piece about Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit and before we even had a chance to finish our post and share it on social media where it would swiftly be devoured, it had already sold out. In 30 seconds. That’s got to be some sort of world record, right? You’ll have to fight tooth and nail to even dream of getting your hands on one this side of Christmas, or EVER; such is their worldwide popularity. However, before you throw your toys out of the pram in a fit of rage, consider the more affordable, incredibly similar and just as high-quality products we’ve gathered for you here.
Though we regularly question Kylie’s antics – we’re not about to devote column inches to her ‘breaking the internet’ when she’s just turned 18 and it’s all a tad uncomfortable – we do give her props in the make-up department. Granted, her skin is so youthful and clear, she doesn’t need to have her face fully painted and we think she looks ten times more beautiful when she goes without it. Nevertheless, Kylie’s Instagram game, whether it be a classic duck face pout or a modern take on the fish gape, has restored our love of that signature 90s lip: flat, matte and nude, or if it’s a night on the tiles, perhaps you’ll graduate to a deeper brown/berry tone. Opting for a beige or nude-toned lip will enhance your pout, allowing for a lot more drama where the eyes are concerned. Opting for something dark with a touch of brown will add depth to your look.
