Kylie Dolce K Matte Lip Kit Review, Swatches: Hello again from Megan, and Australia. I hope you’re all having a magical day! Kylie Jenner has made a name for herself, outside of belonging in the Kardashian clan; she has launched a shoe and handbag line (with her sister Kendal), but what she is most famous for on her own is her makeup line – Kylie Cosmetics, of Kyshadows (eyeshadow palette), Kyliners (eyeliner) and her glosses, lip liners and liquid lipsticks (metallic and matte). Her matte ‘lipsticks kits’, which contain a matching lip liner and liquid lipstick, are the hottest thing on everyone’s lips, and her lipkits often sell out the same day they are restocked.
This little koala got her hands on the Dolce K Lipkit a month back, and I’ve used it for 2 of my review looks already (Too Faced Cocoa Contour Kit, and Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Collection)
This review is focusing on the Dolce K lip kit, as requested by Rachna; Megan has got your back, girl!
About Kylie Dolce K Matte Lip Kit
“The #KylieCosmetics Lip kit is your secret weapon to create the perfect ‘Kylie Lip.’ Each Lip Kit comes with a Matte Liquid Lipstick and matching Lip Liner.
This ultra-long wearing lip liner has a creamy texture that glides across the lips for a very easy and comfortable application. The Lip Liner sharpens easily in most standard sized sharpeners – just make sure your sharpener is not dull!
The Liquid Matte Lipstick has high intensity pigment for an instant bold matte lip. The extremely long wearing lipstick contains moisturizing ingredients for a comfortable, emollient and silky feel that does not dry your lips out.”

In Detail Kylie Dolce K Matte Lip Kit Review, Swatches and My Experience
Be careful; it’s so easy to apply too much and it can go very dark if you do. When I apply it, I wipe off the doe-foot applicator until the ‘fuzzy’ texture isn’t buried in the product. It looks like you’ve pretty much wiped it all off, but trust me when I say what it left is more than enough. I only then apply a single swipe to my bottom lip, then share it with the top lip when I press them together.
They dry down very quickly if you don’t apply it too thickly, but even before I got the amount down-pat, it still dried in a reasonable amount of time.
The one downside is if you need to retouch after food, it doesn’t blend very well with the old coat, and I know I can tell when there new is, vs the old. It’s not as forgiving as some liquid lipsticks when it comes to touch-ups.
How to use the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit in Dolce K
You can either wear the lip-liner on its own for a soft lip, or team up with the liquid matte lipstick for an all-day nude lip. I for one, only line my lips with the liner, then fill in.
It removes with makeup-remover (I use Essano Rosehip Micellar Water) or oil.
Packaging and Formula
Now, there was some controversy, where people said she was ripping off Colour Pop’s formula; Kylie Jenner Cosmetics is a sister-company of colour pop, and while the formula is very similar, she has changed it, most significantly removing the Carmine (except for in Candy K), which has a drying effect. So she’s very much innovated and developed her own. The removal of the Carmine also means that they are vegan, which is wonderful news for those who prefer to shop for their cosmetics from vegan options.
As a result, they feel great on, and last so well, all day, even around eating and drinking. I did notice that if I was eating oily food, it wouldn’t stay on, though. It’s so mousey and rich, and very easy to apply too much, so apply very sparingly.
It smells amazing; like vanilla cupcake frosting, and for me, smell is so important, particularly if it’s going to be right under my nose. The smell does go away, but while it lingers, it’s lovely.

1. I started my lining my lips with the Kylie Jenner ‘Dolce K’ lip-liner pencil
2. I applied a very thin layer to my bottom lip and pressed it to the top lip to spread colour
I finished the look off with an eyeliner (Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, “Triple Fudge”)
Pros of Kylie Dolce K Matte Lip Kit
• Good range of colours
• (Mostly) food proof
• Only need a tiny amount
• Dries down very quickly
• Vegan (except for Candy K)
• All shades not tested on animals
Cons of Kylie Dolce K Matte Lip Kit
• Easy to over-apply
• Tends to show up every lip wrinkle unless you use a lip scrub beforehand
• Demand means they can sell out fast
• Candy K isn’t vegan
• Retouches can look patchy
I don’t follow the Kardashian’s and I’m not a fan, so I can say with no bias whatsoever that this is a fabulous product; it’s got a mousy, creamy consistency that makes it comfortable for all day wear, in a versatile nude shade. I team it with everything and it looks flawless.
This is my go-to lipstick!
Will I Buy Again?
Yes, although I wouldn’t mind comparing with the Colour Pop formula and colours, as they are considerably cheaper.
• Use a lip scrub beforehand for a smoother look
• Remove excess product before application to aid in faster drying
