Kylie Cosmetics - Smooch Valentine's Mini Kit: First Impressions

Hi Beauties,

Kylie Cosmetics has released a Valentine’s Collection similar to her holiday and birthday limited edition collections.  The collection was released on February 2, 2017.  There is a wide range of items in this collection from lip kits, mini liquid lipsticks, three mini collections and one larger palette called Kylie’s Diary.  I purchased one of the mini kits in Smooch to test out, mostly because many items sold out in seconds.

The Smooch kit contains 4 mini size items of Kylie’s favourite shades packaged in limited edition red packaging in honour of Valentine’s Day.  This set comes with two pressed powder Kyshadows, a Matte Liquid Lipstick and a Gloss and retails for $22 (USD).

  • Poison Berry (matte deepened berry)
  • In Love (metallic opalescent pink)

When I initially swatched Poison Berry, it applied very dry and patchy however that wasn't the case on the eyes.  It was pigmented and blended well.  The other shade, In Love, is a little powdery and had some fallout.  I wish it was more buttery and smooth. I suggest using Mac fix plus to get optimal wear and to avoid fading.

Matte Liquid Lipstick & Gloss

  • Gorg (red burgundy wine)
  • Damn Gina (soft shimmering peachy-pink gloss)

There are only a few liquid lipstick brands that I like and to my surprise, I actually like this one.  The formula is thin and fast drying.  It wears very comfortably.  The shade Gorg is a nice burgundy colour however I don't  see myself wearing this shade too often.  The gloss is a very pretty light pink that adds a nice sheen atop the lipstick.  It also looks amazing over a nude or pink base.  The formula is non-sticky which is a plus.  On the other hand, due to the size of the applicator, the wand is very small.  Unless you're picking up a lot of product at once, you need multiple strokes to cover your lips.  You can watch the video below of me applying the gloss to get a better understanding of what I mean.

Final thoughts:

This was my first purchase from Kylie Cosmetics and I was surprised how fast my order came after hearing some horrible stories.  As far as the packaging, it's cute and I like the metallic red details.  Purchasing this kit was a great way for me to try out a few of her products at once.  To be honest,  I didn't do much research on this product before I purchased it.  It was the only thing that was left in stock, so I checked out in a haste.  With that said, upon receiving this, I was shocked at how tiny these items were.  I guess I should have known considering it was only $22, which is not a bad price.  It was the shipping fees to Canada, that makes me feel this kit was not worth it. The shipping rate was $15 USD which wouldn't have been too bad if I was placing a huge order. The total order ended up costing me $50 CND for some mini size items.  I would have much preferred the shades in the Kiss Me Kit but it was sold out.  I don't think the shadows are the best out there, so I probably won't be purchasing any more of her shadows anytime soon.  I do like the liquid lipstick and the gloss.  I feel (would hope) the wand would apply much better on a full size gloss.  If Kylie Cosmetics offers free international,   I would consider purchasing some more lip products.  This kit is currently sold out but you can shop her collections at

Have you tried any Kylie Cosmetic products before?  What are your thoughts?  Am I just nit picking?
