BEAUTY: To Kylie or Not To Kylie: That is the Question

So the Kylie Lip Lit. We've all heard about, dreamed about trying, but ultimately, haven't. Those lip kits sell out in a snap. So what's a girl to do when she wants the perfect Kylie lip but doesn't have the lip kit? Get a dub. I realize this can be difficult to find a knock off of a luxury lipstick like Dior or Kylie. But its all trial and error, my loves.

Before I tell you the best dubs for the Kylie Lip Kit, I would like to tell you a story. So one of my closest friends is a make up addict. I'm not kidding--one entire wall of her bedroom is dedicated to make up. Completely mirrored (with additional close up mirrors), a rolling chair, and a full counter of every make up you could ever imagine. I had been complaining about finding the right nude lip for days at this point. So one day my friend texts me, "What time does your class end." I told her 4:45 and she immediately responds with, "Come to Central Parking Lot I have a gift for you." Naturally, i began wondering about the possibilities. As the time arrived I scurried into the parking lot only to find her standing outside of her car with this.

Two eyeshadow pencils and--wait for it--could it be? The perfect nude lip? I am pleased to say that it was. NYX Cosmetics Lip Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt. The matte liquid lipstick is the perfect dub for the Kylie Lip Kit in Candy K.

Obviously, there is appeal behind having Kylie's product. I mean, its Kylie Jenner. The kit comes with both the liquid lip and the matching lip liner. It is creamy and luxurious, and also has moisturizers to stay Kylie fresh all day. The ultra matte nude lip wears for hours on end. But what about the NYX Lip Lingerie, you ask? Well... its the same. Both lips are ultra-long lasting, matte liquids. The NYX also glides on very smoothly (especially after a little pre-lip exfoliation and moisturizing) and keeps lips beautifully moisturized, just like the Kylie.

Shall I also throw in that the colors are almost identical?

I will say this: the Kylie Lip Kit comes with a lip liner where NYX does not, but the NYX lip is 0.13 fl. oz. as opposed to Kylie's 0.11 fl. oz.

In my opinion, the NYX Lip Lingerie is the way to go if you want to achieve Kylie in Candy K on a low budget. For essentially the same product, you pay $7 at NYX and $29 online for Kylie's typically sold out lip.

If you don't believe me, read the reviews.

Thanks for walking on the runway, loves.
