Kylie Lip Kit: Posie K Reveiw 💋

Today , I’m gonna review the oh-so famous Kylie lip kit in Posie k. I’ve been playing with it and really using it to give a full detailed review. I’ll start with the swatches of both the liner and the liquid lipstick.

Posie k liquid lipstick (bottom) and liner (top) swatch.
First I wanna talk about the scent; it’s a very sweet vanilla ish scent ,it’s comes of really strong when you first open the lipstick but you can’t really smell it on the lips , it slowly fades away. The pigmentation is amazing, in the picture above it was only one swipe and that was the result. Next thing let’s talk about the formula , when you apply it at first it doesn’t feel like you have anything on. It goes on smoothly and feel nice on the lips but after 2-3 hours your lips start to get dry and kind of crack on your lips. One thing I would like to command it on is the fact the it stayed on even after dinner . I’ll insert a picture here of me when I first applied it, after dinner and at the end of the night.

Me with Posie k on, I think it was after an hour of application that I took this picture.

After this I had lunch and for lunch I had a burger , which we all know how greasy and messy it can be. Surprisingly the lipstick stay on really well, the other time I went out with this on I had Chinese food which is oily and super messy and even with that it stayed on well.i would also like to point out for every time I had worn it I lined my lips with the liner provided in the kit.

This was after lunch .

This is after 7-8 hours of me wearing it without any touch ups.
Let’s talk a little about the liner , I think the liner is really good. It’s nice and smooth but not too smooth where it just melt on the lips . i actually prefer my liners to be a little stiff so i can work with it, some really creamy liners tend to smudge on my lips and i think this liner is perfect. One little thing I wanna point out with the liner is that the cap, when you put the cap back on make sure it’s on properly.

I would like to point out some Pros and Cons.

Pros:

1. Very pigmented.

2.long wearing 

3. Fades nicely.

Cons:

1. Really hard to get.

2. It’s expensive. ( but you do get a liner and a liquid lipstick)

3. After 2-3 hours of wear it gets really drying. 

4.does settle into lip lines. 

I would give it a 3.5/5 . I honestly prefer my Kat von d liquid lipsticks over this one. It’s just more comfortable for me . 😊 I hope this was helpful.

Eye look of the day 💕

I used my Carli Bybel palette today for this look. I used the deeper matte shades in the crease and the gold and copper on the lid. Also I decided to use my Dslr for my makeup pictures because they come out better 😁.

Mac dupes : Medora Lipsticks ? 

Note/ disclaimer : These dupes are with lipstick I own and they might not be a 100 % same , they are very similar . These are just my opinions.

I love lipsticks so much , that over the years I have accumulated quite a bit. I love trying out all brands be it high end (when I can afford them) or drugstore . Mac lipsticks are loved by a lot of people and are really good quality but they can be a little expensive . Also Mac cosmetics products are  hard to come by here(Pakistan) and when you do it’s really over priced and there is a chance of them not being ‘real’.  Like I mentioned before I love lipsticks so I have a lot 😋 I decided to go through my lipstick stash and look for cheaper dupes . When I swatched the Medora ones some of them looked really similar to my Mac ones. Now for anyone who doesn’t know Medora of London , it’s a really inexpensive Pakistani brand and I think they are most famous for their lipsticks. I’m not sure of you can get them outside of Pakistan.

First let’s look at the swatches.  Medora’s Mystry and Mac’s rebel.

Medora’s Mystry is a matte finish  and Mac’s  rebel  is a satin finish. The colour look the same on the lip but the Mac one has some shine to it. Also the Medora one is a little pinker than the Mac one.
 Medora’s fiesta and Mac’s lustering.

Fiesta is a matte and lustering is a lustre finish. Fiesta might be the most patchiest one that I own. The colours are the same but the Mac one goes on a lot smoother and more opaque.

 Mac’s craving and Medora’s pink berry

Mac’s craving which is an amplified final and Medora’s pink berry matte. Other than the differnt finishes the colours are the exact same. It’s not as bad as the how it turned out in the picture though. When applied on the lip the colours look the same.
  Medora’s carnation and Mac’s syrup. 

Medora’s carnation matte and Mac’s syrup lustre. This was a surprise dupe I wasn’t expecting them to be this similar the only major difference is that the Mac one is a little shiny since it is a lustre finish.
 Medora’s siss , Mac’s touch and Medora’s brown Tom Tom.

Medora’s siss (matte) , Mac’s touch (lustre) and medora’s brown Tom Tom (matte). This was a hard one originally I wanted to dupe whirl but I would find an exact dupe for it but I did some close to touch . It’s not exact but I wanna show that there are a lot of brown’s in the collection.

 Medora and Mac’s outer packaging.( Medora’s packaging isnt the best its made from cheap plastic and i have problems with the cap breaking and not sliding off the tube )
Now that the swatches are done let’s move on to the formulas. All of the Medora lipsticks in the swatches were matte and I’m gonna be 100 % honest I love the matte formula of these lipsticks , even more than Mac’s . They go on smooth and creamy yet they stay matte on the lips. They feel comfortable and they last for quite some time on the lips. The only one that went on patchy was fiesta and it was also kinda sheet compared to the others , so I might stay away from that colour. The others are amazing. The swatches weren’t exact but they were close. These are just on the lipsticks I own from Medora . I’m sure i can find more dupes from the Medora lipstick like and I’m sure they have more finishes like semi matte, glossy etc. I think if you can you definitely should give these are try and they are so inexpensive. I get mine for only 110 Pakistani rupees ($1.05) . I hope this mini review and swatches were helpful to some. Please let me know your thoughts on it , I would really appreciate it ❤️.

You can buy these at Saloni and any drugstores in Pakistan.

Colour pop ‘nillionaire’ shadow reveiw. 

Nillionaire by colourpop on my lid.
I’m gonna be honest, looking up pictures online and looking at the swatches of  the colour it looked absolutely beautiful. When I got it and swatched it with my fingers it looked like it would be the most pigmented shadow but when applied to the eye lid with and without primer it showed up really sheer. Yes , I did apply it with my finger like it’s said on colour pops website. It’s almost impossible to get any pigmentation with a brush. Now I’ve heard that the metallic shades from the colourpop super shock shadows tend to do that but a part of my was really hoping it would turn out super sparkly and pigmented on my lids. Since bae worked out so good for me I was hoping this would do the same.

Don’t get me wrong it’s still a beautiful shade and even when not being as pigmented as I would like , it still looked beautiful . What I would suggest is use it over another shadow; like a dark shadow and it would add some sparkle to it. I think this issue it only with the metallic shades, I also bought ‘kathleenlights‘ which is a pearlised shade and it works amazing especially for a $5 shadow.

 Swatches on my finger and hand.  Continue reading “Colour pop ‘nillionaire’ shadow reveiw. “

Green & Gold halo eyeshadow look. 

I would like to start off by stating I’m not a professional makeup artist, any knowledge and techniques I know ,I learned off YouTube and Instagram. If did any thing wrong I’m sorry.

Now that we got that out of the way , let’s talk about the look . I had a wedding to go to today so I decided to do something different. I don’t play around with colour a lot but I decided I should do a pop of colour.So I came up with this look ⬇️.


Let me know if you guys like it. It’s my first time doing something “dramatic” ish.

On my face :

Primer: Becca backlight priming filter and Smashbox finish foundation primer

Foundation: Makeup forever hd foundation.

Concealer : Benefit erase paste and Nars radient creamy concealer.

Bronzing and Contouring: La girl hd pro concealer in toast as my cream contour and to set it I used Kat Von D’s shade and light  contouring palette.

Hightlight and baking: I recently got into baking. I usually never bake under my eyes cause it really makes my under eye area dry and it looks really bad. I bake under my contour for a sharper look so for that I used the Nyx hd setting powder And to highlight I used the becca shimmering skin perfector in Champagne Pop. 

On my eyes:

I used a mix of shadows from the urban decay ammo palette and the carli bybel palette. My linner is the Maybelline gel linner. I did use some fake lashes , sorry I don’t know wheat company I just got them locally and they did not come with a brand name. I filled my brows with a really dark brown shadow, I don’t do much with my eyebrows.

On my Lips:

Mac’s lip liner in Soar and Mac’s lipstick in Whirl.

I hope this information was helpful.please let me know your thoughts and I’m open to all criticism.
