I Hacked Kylie Jenner’s New Lip Kit Shade With Eyeshadow
Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits are a makeup junkie must-have, which means they’re really hard to get your hands on. If you manage to get one into your virtual cart before they sell out, you’ve also got to contend with empty, stolen or subpar quality kits.
And with the 18-year-old mogul-in-the-making’s newest restock, it’s about to get a whole lot harder to get your hands on one of her covetable shades. Kylie just released an all-matte collection of metallic lipsticks including rose gold, yellow gold and bronze lippies and an Instagram-worthy matte metallic black-blue hue called Majesty.
Majesty is a gorgeous, iridescent shade fit for royalty. The greyish blue liquid-to-matte lipstick is sure to break Kylie Cosmetics sales records… and I want it! But not enough to go through a Survivor-esque, last-woman-standing online shopping experience. So, I decided to try to hack Majesty using some products I already have in my makeup bag.
STEP 1: APPLY BLACK LIPSTICK TO YOUR LIPS
First, apply your favorite black lipstick to your lips. Any lipstick formula will work, but I chose Lime Crime Velvetine in Black Velvet ($16), a matte liquid lippie and one of my fave lipsticks period.
STEP 2: APPLY EYE SHADOW TO YOUR LIPS
Next, while your base lipstick is still slightly damp, use a finger to dab a metallic blue-silver eyeshadow onto your lips. I’m using Coastal Scents Eye Shadow in Regalia Purple ($2).
And that’s it! Two steps, two products and you’ve hacked Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit shade in Majesty.
The lipstick and eyeshadow were surprisingly long-wearing and held up against some serious summer heat, as well as eating and drinking. I absolutely love the look and can’t wait to try this technique with other lipstick and eyeshadow combos like this oil slick lip art.
