Iiiiiiiiiiii want Candy! ??
Except, I’ve already got it! If you were lucky (and quick) today, it’s possible you got your hands on it too! At 5pm Central, the newest Lip Kit shade was launched- an orangey-red named “22” after Kylie’s lucky number (and I was lucky enough to snag it!). At the same time, all shades except Mary Jo K and True Brown K were restocked, but everything sold out in just over 15 minutes.
Once again, Candy K was one of the most sought-after shades, and it’s not hard to see why!
Candy K has the same great formula, with an undeniably appealing color. Darker and pinker than Koko K, but lighter than Dolce K, Candy is a perfect neutral brown-pink.
Kylie not only got things right with the lip kit formulation, but is also excellent at making sure the shades work for a wide variety of skin tones. Candy K is a perfect neutral for fair skinned beauties, and a great nude for deeper skinned lovelies. The darker the skin tone, the pinker it appears. If you’re fair like me, don’t be surprised if this color pulls a lot more brown than you see in instagram pictures on the Kylie Cosmetics feed.
One thing I’ve neglected to mention so far is the scent of these lip colors! If you’re someone who likes un- or subtly-scented lipsticks, you’ll be unhappy to learn that these are very fragrant. Lip Kits have a smell that reminds me of really strong buttercream icing. If you like sweet scents, it’s very nice, but otherwise, the fragrance may be too much.
Tomorrow, I’m going to share the color with you that I was most terrified of – True Brown! Make sure to check back soon for an update. Remember, only 2 reviews to go until I announce the surprise! 🙂
