Kyshadow Holiday Palette Review

PSA: This is your last chance to purchase any products from the Kylie Cosmetics holiday collection! Stock is limited, but the eyeshadow palette is still available at the time I am writing this.

I decided last minute to write this review, so you will be getting two posts (check out my review of the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette) from me today. I received the Kyshadow Holiday palette for Christmas, and thought you might enjoy some swatches while the palette is still available for purchase.


This palette retails for $42 and can be purchased on the Kylie Cosmetics website. You can buy it separately or as part of the holiday edition box sets.


Overall, this palette contains a beautiful variety of shades, both mattes and shimmers. I think the gold and silver colors are perfect for a NYE look, and the matte purple is so gorgeous! This is my first Kyshadow purchase, and I am very happy with the quality. Unlike Kylie’s other palettes, the holiday edition eyeshadow palette does contain a mirror.

Now to the best part, swatches!

I really like this palette and would recommend it to any eyeshadow collector or Kylie Cosmetics fan – you won’t be disappointed. The shades may not seem super pigmented at first, but you can build them up to full intensity. If you have been debating this purchase, grab it while you still can 🙂

Did you purchase anything from the Kylie Cosmetics holiday line? Let me know in the comments!

Kylie So Cute Lip Gloss Review

Hi everyone!

If you haven’t seen my last review of the Kylie Lip Kits, you may want to check that out as well. I loved the liquid lipstick so much, I decided to purchase a lip gloss shortly after. The site was a madhouse and it was almost impossible to get one of these, but fortunately I was able to make it through the checkout process in time. I also shared my tips on how to purchase from in my last post if you are interested.

The lip gloss I bought is in the shade So Cute! It’s a light brown/neutral color. You can build up the intensity of the gloss as well, so you can layer it over a lipstick or wear it on its on as well. I personally do not like the sticky feeling of lip gloss, but this lip gloss does not have that icky sensation. Once you get through initial application, blot the excess product off with a tissue and you should be all set. As someone who really isn’t a fan of lip gloss, I recommend this one because it feels comfortable on the lips. Sometimes I forget I’m wearing it (its that moisturizing). As you probably know, The defective brush was a concern with the first batch of lip glosses. Kylie Cosmetics replaced all the wands and sent out replacements to all unsatisfied customers, so you should be fine if you purchase a gloss in the future. My lip gloss wand is perfectly fine, and I think it applies the product evenly.

Kylie Lip Glosses retail for $15 on The next restock date is unknown at the moment, but keep your eye open for more info. There are only three glosses in the collection so far: Like, Literally, and So Cute; all of them are 0.09 fl oz tubes.

I hope you enjoyed this review! Let me know what Kylie Lip Kit or Gloss is your favorite 🙂 Don’t forget to check out my instagram @marielelena_ for more photos.

Kylie Lip Kit Review

Hi everyone!!

Today I will be reviewing the infamous Kylie Lip Kit in the shade Posie K. I was finally able to get my hands on one of these bad boys, and I paid for this product with my own money. Before I start the review, I just want to share all the information quickly. Kylie Lip Kits retail for $29 and are available exclusively on Each lip kit contains a 0.11 fl. oz. matte lipstick and a 0.03 oz. lip liner. At the moment there are 8 Kylie Lip Kits: Candy K, Dolce K, True Brown K, Posie K, 22, Mary Jo K, Koko K, and Kourt K. Three glosses have also been released with the shades: Like, Literally, and So Cute. The next restocking date for Koko K, Candy K, Dolce K, Posie K, Kourt K  and all of the glosses is rumored to be tomorrow, April 11, at 1 pm PST (via @KylieCosmeticsUpdate). I recommend getting on the site at 1 pm PST exactly because the shades WILL sell out within a few minutes. So in preparation for tomorrow, I am going to share my opinion on the beautiful Posie K shade.

To start off, I will say that the shade Posie K caught my eye immediately. I think it is absolutely gorgeous, and the packaging is very sleek and appealing. The color itself is a little dark and more mauve toned than anticipated, but I love it nonetheless. I have no complaints about the Kylie Lip Kit. The price is very reasonable, and the lipstick and liner are extremely long lasting. After scrubbing my lips with a makeup remover wipe, I still found some residue left the next morning. The lipstick also smells delicious! It has a faint smell of cake and strawberries in my opinion, similar to the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks. The lipstick drys quickly, but not too fast – you will have time to apply carefully. Overall, I love the Kylie Lip Kit in Posie K! I just might have to pick up another shade, or a gloss to test out.

Now, the most important part and probably the whole reason you clicked on this post in the first place: swatches!!
