Kylie Jenner Lip Color: How to Get the Look feat. High End to Drugstore brands

Posted by Makeupsocial on 6/28/2014 with 2 comments


Let's admit it. Ever since Kylie Jenner started posting up her Instagram selfies, the beauty world has been obsessing over her lips and finding her current lip colour.  We decided to go on the hunt as well and after spending sometime scouring through different lip products we have found three different lippies that really help you achieve Kylie Jenner's Lip Colour!

The Kylie Jenner Lip: An almost 90's brown mauvey nude pink with a matte finish.



The High End, The Boutique and The Drugstore

1. Tarte Cosmetics Lip Surgence Matte Lip Tint in "Exposed" (High End)

Application & Colour: Using the lip tint, apply this colour all over the lips. You can layer the colour on for greater intensity. The pigment is strong and it offers a nice matte mauvey pink nude colour. 

Compared to Kylie: You can see that the lip tint is bordering more on the nude side where as Kylie's lips has a stronger mauvey undertone. It is probably the least likely lippie that looks like Kylie's colour out of the three lipsticks reviewed today. However the best part about this lip stain is that if you're short on time but still want that Kylie'esque feel that day, this lip is so easy to apply.

2. Girlactik Beauty Matte Lip Paint in "Allure" & Le Creme Lipstick in "Naked" (Boutique)

Application & Colour: The Matte Lip Paint in "Allure" is a pigmented liquid lipstick that dries matte. The colour is a rich dirty rose colour that dries lighter than applied. The Le Creme Lipstick in "Naked" is a pigmented nude and has a slight sheen but it doesn't mess with the matte look underneath. 
Step 1: Using the Matte Lip Paint in "Allure", fill the entire lip with this colour. Wait for it to dry to a nice matte and lighter shade. 
Step 2: Apply the Le Creme Lipstick in "Naked" onto the centre of the bottom lip and the underside of the top lip to create a subtle ombre that Kylie has on her lips.

Compared to Kylie: The dark dirty rose undertone of the lip paint creates a great base for the mauvey pink that Kylie has and the "Naked" on the centre of the lips gives a perfect finish to blend that nude and pink together. This colour is by far the closest we have found to Kylie's lip colour. It is more stunning and more accurate in real life. (Scroll down to see more photos later).

3. Sephora "Royal Rose" Nano Lip Liner, Wet n Wild "Bare It All" Lipstick (Drugstore)

Application & Colour: The Sephora Lip Liner in "Royal Rose" is a beautiful mauvey rose colour that smoothly glides onto the lips. As the lighter colour, the WnW "Bare It All" is the perfect pink nude colour combination that is complete matte. 
Step 1: Using the Sephora Lip Liner in "Royal Rose", line and fill the entire lip with this colour. 
Step 2: Apply the WnW "Bare It All" Lipstick onto the centre of the bottom lip and the underside of the top lip to create a subtle ombre that Kylie has on her lips.

Compared to Kylie: The combo of the lip liner and the lipstick gives a great drugstore dupe for the Girlactik Beauty look that we are trying to achieve at the top as it was almost exact to what Kylie's lips looked like. We think this colour is very close to Kylie's lips, however the only downside is that it can border on the "too much rose" in the lips that can throw off that nude pink mauvey look.

The Winner closest to Kylie's Lip Colour is:

Girlactik Beauty "Allure" Matte Lip Paint + "Naked" Lipstick

We love these two products when combined together. Its the perfect combination of that nude pink look as well as the mauvey rose that Kylie's lip has. Please keep in mind that you would have to have both the lip paint and the lipstick to recreate it, without either one of them, the outcome is just not the same. You can buy their products on their website at www.girlactik.com.
