So we all know not to buy cosmetics from Ebay because only God knows what’s inside. But then I thought, do you actually know what’s inside in all those cheap Primark or Poundland stuff, for example? I mean just because something is sold in store, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the safest option. Today I’m reviewing a fake Kylie lip kit that I got off ebay.
I’ve purchased the lip kit from ebay because of two reasons. First, I’m not a great fan of Kylie and don’t want to support her business. And well, because it was ideal for testing purposes. The kit came in a normal cardboard packaging, which unfortunately I don’t have with me.
I’ve got a liquid lipstick and a lip liner in the shade Kandy K, and to be fair, there’s not a good match between them at all. They are like two completely different shades (but still beautiful nonetheless).
Now comes the interesting part – the consistency. The lip liner feels normal, it’s soft and well pigmented. The liquid lipstick is obviously liquid at the beginning but quickly dries matte. Some people say their lips get glued together, ehhh it’s a bit sticky, yes, but once it’s completely dry, I wouldn’t say there’s such thing.
The biggest problem for me personally is that I can’t take the lipstick off! I really don’t know what’s inside but it’s the most long lasting lipstick I’ve ever used! I even did one swatch on my hand 3 days ago, and you can still see it, although I washed myself at least a dozen times already!! Really, I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing, but it kind of annoys me when I can’t take off my make up completely. But if you are after a 24h+ perfect look – that’s the lipstick you’ve been looking for. I once had a similar experience swatching a Primark lipstick in store and then I couldn’t wash it off for days.
As you can see, the fake Kylie lipstick is very similar to my Mac Velvet Teddy (although a little bit pinky). The lip liner is significantly darker than them both. However, both lipsticks share the same sweet vanilla scent, something I very much liked as I presumed all fakes smell chemically.
Overall I like the consistency of the lip liner way more than the one of the lipstick. Would I wear the fake Kylie lip kit again? Em, no, it goes straight to the bin after I publish this post. There are so many other nice lipsticks that I’m excited to wear every day, and this is not one of them. The fact that you can’t remove the lipstick makes you wonder what rubbish is it made of?
Disclaimer: I’m not saying go and buy fake make up, you should do it on your own risk. I personally won’t wear it and I wouldn’t recommend you using fake items off random websites.
Have you ever tried make up purchased from ebay? What do you think about all the fakes?
