Kylie Kylighters Review and Swatches

Love the packaging! Love the names! But these have to be the worse highlighters I've ever tried! Kylie Jenner came out with her Kylie Kylighters (Highlighters) the beginning of this year. I almost purchased them then; but then the reviews rolled in and many complained they weren't pigmented and applied too light. So I said ok. I'm not one for bling'd out highlighters, so maybe these would work for me. So Kylie held a ONE HOUR, 50% OFF sale! I purchased all six! BAD DECISION. BAD DECISION. Do not buy these full price. Do not buy these half price. Do not buy these! The pigmentation is way too light. I had to apply and apply and apply to get THE SWATCHES YOU SEE BELOW. There's something off with this formula. I had a hard time blending these highlighters with my other makeup. They looked horrible when I applied them atop my Laura Mercier powder. They did better applied atop just foundation, but then the colors ugggh! LOL Chocolate Cherry & Strawberry Shortcake make me look like I have sunburn. Banana Split, Cotton Candy Cream and French Vanilla make me look like I have jaundice. Salted Caramel makes me look like I spilled glitter on my face. So, I will be using these as drink coasters instead. LMFAO. Don't say I didn't warn you! It's really a shame. These could've been nice. I'm wearing Kylie's Lip Glosses in Like, Literally, So Cute below. Still love those.

  1. So sorry you are not pleased with these, the shades look nice but it's too bad when they don't blend nicely and they don't compliment your skin tone.


  2. Oh nooooo, what a shame and you had bought all six as well! It seems as though Kylie Cosmetics is receiving more and more negative feedback lately due to pigmentation - what a shame. Having said that, genuinely feel as though Salted Caramel looks gorgeous on your skin (or maybe you just naturally glow? haha! :) ) Have a fabulous week Kim!

  3. Oh no, Kim! You gambled and it definitely didn't work out, what a shame. I've been so skeptical of all the Kylie products, despite some of them getting rave reviews, and the way you described these highlighters is exactly what I've been expecting to hear for so long. You win some and you lose some, I suppose ;)

  4. I've heard such mixed reviews by Kylie's brand that I haven't felt tempted to purchase from her.

  5. I haven't bought into any of the Kylie hype thus far. Her new brushes are a joke. Should should try out the Colourpop highlighters. They are way cheaper and the Duos I have, the highlighters are so pretty..and pigmented!

  6. It's a good thing you got these on sale Kim but even at 50% off they definitely don't sound worth it for the poor pigmentation and who would ever want to look sunburned or jaundiced O_o Thanks for the warning!

  7. I am pretty sure I am the only human being who has not purchased a Kylie item... and am kind of glad after seeing this review.

  8. Oh wow, what a shame, Kim! Thankfully you got this eon sale but even then these are not worth it. :-(

  9. Aww that’s too bad that these are crappy! I can’t believe none of them out of the 6 aren’t good!! The swatches look pretty, but you shouldn’t have to work that hard for them to show up!

  10. Oh no! How frustrating that none of them work for you! At least you didn't pay full price I guess. Definitely seems like the success with the lipsticks hasn't translated into other products from the line!

    Hope you are having a great start to the week - less than two weeks until Christmas now! Luckily I finished buying all my presents yesterday. Hope your Christmas preparations are going well!

  11. The packaging is so cute, but it sad these didn't work out for you :(


  12. Oh gosh Kim, your review had me laughing! Using them as drink coasters sound like a great idea. 😂 It sucks that these were complete duds.
