Kylie Metal Matte Lipstick in Reign, King K And Heir Review & Swatches

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Just as I thought I was through with Kylie Jenner and her lip kits, she came out with METALS, GLOSSES and a PURPLE lipstick. All of which I love. So for the next three weeks, I'll review each for you. Let's start with the metals! The Kylie Metal Matte Lipsticks ($18) can be purchased individually or as a set. My thoughts on each are below.


Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet
supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff) 
  Kylie Metal Matte Lipsticks in Reign, King K and Heir are Supersweet

Let me preface this review by saying, these are the lightest feeling metal lipsticks I've ever applied to my lips. LOL The formula is whisper thin & light as a feather, but the color pay-off is amazing. Another thing that puzzled me, was they were not liquid-y. It's a dry formula, but it doesn't make your lips dry. Amazing. They're also not sticky. These also have the same great cake scent, I love. Now the colors...

Kylie Metal Matte Lipstick in Heir

Heir is described on her website as a pinkish gold metallic and she's right. But it definitely leans more on the pink side. It's almost a peachy pink. You guys know how I feel about pink! Sometimes they work for me and sometimes they don't. This one is ok on me, but I think it would look better on a lighter skin tone. It's perfect for Summer.

 

Kylie Metal Matte Lipstick in King K

King K is described on her website as a soft metallic gold. Right again! It reminds me of a rose gold. I love bronze & gold colors.  I thought I had a metallic gold lipstick/lipgloss in my collection (and I do)...it's Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in Gilded, but it gives off a different effect than this. Also I have my NYX Wicked Lipstick in Wrath, but it's a bronze. A beauty blogger knows her collection! HaHaHa So not having anything like King K is refreshing to own.

 Kylie Metal Matte Lipstick in Reign

Reign is my absolute personal favorite. For some reason, I rock darker colors better. Give me the reds ... the purples etc. On her site, Reign is described as a Bronzy Copper Metallic.  This shade has several colors going on...It's purple...It's maroon...It's Copper and maybe a little Bronze. It's a mix of colors. It's very beautiful and I think would look great especially on medium skin tones and darker. It's similar to Dose of Colors Teddy. Reign is the color her BFF Jordyn wore (see my post here). As you can see it shows up more purple on me. It's amazing how lip products can look differently on various skin tones. So I love this one.

 

 Contour vs No Contour

I decided to compare Reign to Dose of Colors Corset. Corset is definitely more purple. As mentioned above, it's closer to Dose of Colors Teddy (which was limited edition). While I was comparing the two, I couldn't help but notice my nose. LOL It looked so much slimmer in the Corset picture. I forgot I contoured! HaHaHa I purchased a lot of contouring palettes last year, but never used them or reviewed them due to the remodeling of my home. Just now playing with them and I see the difference. It really does slim down your face! So you guys are my witness! If anyone says Kim had a nose job...That is TOTALLY NOT TRUE! Contour baby! :D

Metallic lipsticks are definitely not my thing, but the formula of these sounds just amazing, Kim! And I have to say, I am really impressed by your contouring skills, I can't wait to read more about the contouring kits you've been experimenting with :)

Reign and Corset do look kind of similar and both are pretty on you. You did a great job with the coutouring Kim! It looks really natural!

Reign is absolutely stunning on you, Kim! I'm always awed at how you are able to get your hands on these so fast! Sounds like the formula on these is awesome too, lightweight lip products are the BEST!
I'm not much of a contouring person, but I'm going to start giving it a try, you look great!

These sound really nice. I have seen people mix King K and Heir. Reign looks fab on you! That is my favorite as it goes great with your skin tone. I also can see a huge difference with the contouring! I used to contour a year or so ago but got lazy. It def makes a difference! Great review Kim!

Candice Petersen said...

Oh wow these look so beautiful king Kong and reign are definitely my favourite between the three better suited for my skin tone

I love both Reign and King K on you! Those are stunning! Heir is pretty too, and you're right that it's nice for summer! And it's so crazy on how much difference contouring makes!! You are both stunning with and without contouring, but seeing that makes me want to try contouring my nose too LOL!

Adaleta said...

What an excellent review! I've been thinking about these lip products for quite some time & you make me quite intrigued to try them on my own! xx Adaleta Avdic

Dale Janée said...

Oooh thank you for doing this review Kim because I totally bought the dupes (Coulour Pop) after Kylie's sold out so fast a few months ago. I liked them, but wasn't a huge fan of the matte and now I think these metal mattes are gorgeous! I agree the Reign is my favorite on you. You totally rocked the Kardashian makeup with the contour. I love how they do their makeup and love the contour nose job secret at the end. Hehe!

Lauren Carter said...

Reign looks fantastic on you! It seems to be the most wearable in this collection. These are so much fun! I find the word "Matte" included in the name to be quite hilarious!

Lorena said...

Reign ! definitely Reign.

I'm surprised but actually really like the pink metallic shades. I love pinks since I'm fair and the metallics are cool!
