Well, well, well… If it isn’t the ace of diamonds of lip crèmes: MODELCo.

So, if you read my blog, you’ll know I’ve been looking for a dupe of Kylie Jenner’s Dirty Peach.

This. Is. It.

I am so in love with this shade, and formula. It actually makes me look sun-kissed, suiting my skin tone perfectly!

Sometimes a peachy nude lipstick is all you need to bring an outfit together. Whether you’re flaunting a colourful, on-trend patterned dress, or you’re embracing a bold and bright eyeshadow, a pinky-nude lipstick is exactly what you need to compliment your look (we all know too much colour is a no-go!).

It’s afull coverage, long-lasting and highly-pigmentedlippy that glides on effortlessly to give your pout a rich, matte coverage.

The Matte Lip Crème boasts a creamy formula that dries instantly for a smooth finish. It’s got a great colour payoff too!

What did I think of it overall?

Amazing. I typically find that matte liquid lipsticks dry out my lips, this one does not.

It’s so creamy, dries instantly & smoothly, and the colour is beautifully high in pigment!

It’s just everything you’d look for in a lipstick. Oh, it lasts a long time too!

Buy it, now.

Made you look!

No, Kylie Jenner did not send me nudes, sadly for you and luckily for me. No offence Kyles, I just don’t swing that way nor do I bat for that team. One day maybe, just – not today. As legit beautiful as Kylie Jenner is, I prefer her clothed. Thanks!

So, anyway, I’ve got the ‘Send Me Nudes’ lip kit, bought it for £49.00 from Amazon – and I legit think it’s a fraud. It feels too flimsy to be real and the colours don’t seem as pigmanted as other Kylie Cosmetics products I’ve used have been.

So, basically, I spent 50 quid on legit (probably) a fake product just to avoid paying shipping charges for the real thing… To say I’m mortified, embarrassed and proper stupid is an understatement.

I dislike the names she’s come up with for these liquid lipsticks, I’m not even going to discuss it.

The shades, as I said, didn’t come out too pigmented… So, I wasn’t and am not a fan of them. Also, they’re glossy, which means they didn’t dry matte.

Honeslty, I didn’t like them at all.

Love Kylie’s other matte lipsticks, just these ones… More expensive (in a set) ones were a no-no. I do think that I was sold illegitamate ones though, still.

Smells like: chocolate.

Formula: not as luxurious as the other ones I’ve tried from her matte ranges.

Packaging: looks probably identical in terms of style (to the real thing), but 100% doesn’t feel like it, in my opinion.  As I said, I’m basing this from the other products I’ve bought from Kylie Cosmetics.

My advice: wait until there’s FREE international shipping days on Kylie Cosmetics, don’t buy it from Amazon. They are legit knockoffs that could damage your lips. Not a good look nor idea, don’t risk it. Thanks!

I realise that I haven’t actually done a separate blog post for Kylie Cosmetics’ Dolce K, so I’m doing it now…

Although I’m not a fan of watching the Kardashian Klan, I do think they’re entrepreneurial in their own right… Yes, they probably wouldn’t be this successful if Kim K didn’t *ahem*, but Kylie Jenner (in particular)’s business acumen is admirable. I sound like I should be on ‘The Apprentice’ right now, don’t I? Sugar, I’ll see you now!

I know there’s been talk of Kylie copycatting other people’s products and stuff, I don’t agree with that, but I do think she’s undeniably successful for her age and to have started out young, she needs commending…

Her lip kits above all are the most recognised of her cosmetics ranges, only because there was a massive hoo-ha about whether she’d had her lips done aged 16.

I’ve discussed this topic previously, I do think she shouldn’t have got her lips done so young, that’s really, really a bad move… But, I don’t care about the fact that people – in general – get their lips done. I think “do what makes you comfortable”, but know the risks and know when enough’s enough.

So, anyway, I’ve mentioned her lip kits on here a few times before… Dirty Peach was the last one I covered. I’m planning to do another one on Apricot soon, so next time UK Shipping is FREE, I’ll definitely be purchasing!

Shipping from America is a myth, I’d rather make my own lip kits out of food colouring FFS!

Dolce K turns my lips into a dark-browny shade when worn, but I really like it, especially since dying my hair jet black. I like black hair and dark browny lip combo on me – it looks exotic, but then again, to others it may look emo. 😂 I’m not an emo, and have nothing against them, I just ain’t one.

Like Dirty Peach (or as I like to call it ‘Dirrrrty PISCH!’) the application is smooth, and formula is good. The application doe-foot wand is excellent too so that’s another positive. I did find that it lasts a while longer than Dirty Peach did.

PRO TIP: only apply one layer though because it’ll start to peel off and look unnatractive.

My current Dolce K is running out and I’m going to have to find a dupe… As I said and’ll continue to, I don’t want to spend money on shipping costs – ain’t nobody got time for that…

Yes, Amazon do Dolce K and other shades but they’re fakes/knock-offs (and sandy :S) (not like Grease, although – speaking of it – ‘You’re The One That I Want’. 💖

My best buys of 2O16 are as follows:

LUSH’s Celestial moisturiser:

I haven’t even written a full length post about this cream yet, but I decided to mention it in my best buys because it’s incredible. Although Lush market it at the dry-normal skin type, I’ve got combination to oily and have never faced any issues (good pun, huh?). I initially bought it to get rid of my dry patches on my nose and chin (together with a sample of Ultrabland) and I couldn’t get enough so I apply it all over every morning and night.

LUSH’s Magical Moringa primer:

I’ve already blogged about this before (featured in other posts)… But, I always need to mention it because it’s extremely special to me beauty wise. I’ll make it my mission in 2017 to write a dedicated post specifically for it. Earlier this year, Lush had to halt production proceedings – which lasted about 2 months (but felt like two years for me)… I now buy it in bulk and use it as a primer but I have also been known to wear it alone or as a moisturiser.

LUSH’s Ocean Salt:

One of my friends uses this on her face and body (which it is designed for) although plenty of bloggers have said that it’s too intense and rough to be used on both… Let me tell you, I followed in my friend’s footsteps and have not looked back. I take care when I apply it, but have found that my skin looks considerably more even, and there are no dry patches or dead skin. My makeup and moisturiser go on a lot smoother and my face looks a lot better in pictures. What’s more, I haven’t got a breakout once since using it… I love how soft it makes my skin feel (face AND body). I love it.

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation:

Bobbi Brown’s Intensive Skin Serum is the new Holy Grail of my makeup kit. This stuff is £40 well spent, I’ll tell you that… SPF 40? Check. Flawless application? Check. Perfect shade? Check. Smooth/second skin feel? Check.

I love this foundation so much. Everyone complains about the squeezy dropper… That’s not the issue for me. The issue is I don’t feel as though there’s anywhere near enough product in the bottle for the price. That being said, it’s amazing and I won’t change from using/wearing it. I’ve finally found a foundation to stick to… I use it every day and have never found any problems, in fact – I’d go as far as to say that it’s helped my skin.

Benefit Hoola:

Oh my word. Oh my word. Oh my, oh my, oh my word. This bronzer is without a doubt the best bronzer I have ever used. I’m very late to the party, I get that… Again, very little amount in packaging but well worth the £9.97 that I paid for it. I absolutely love how it matches my skin tone and makes me look like I’ve got expertly crafted contour. It’s amazing. It’s beautiful. It’s everything. I have found my bronzing calling… My only regret is not buying more than one from Boots when I saw them at the tills.

Kylie Cosmetics’ Dirty Peach:

This is another one of those make-up must haves for olive skinned make-up lovers like myself. I absolutely love it. I was extremely skeptical about buying it and having it not match my skin tone, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I blogged about it, and you can read my thoughts in detail here.

Marc Jacobs Daisy:

I don’t actually know the name of the exact one I’m referring to as there are so many with the same name and are all beautifully scented, but it’s the one in the black box with daisies around it. The Eau de Toilette one. I found it with a little help from Google. The scent is a mixture of patchouli, blood grapefruit, violet, strawberry, gardenia, jasmine, white woods, musk, and vanilla. It’s absolutely beautiful. I get complimented for wearing it everywhere I go.

Kylie Cosmetics: Dirty Peach

🍑 🍑 🍑

Dirty Peach is my favourite lip-stain right now! I have been wearing it for well over two months (and am sad to say that I’ve almost run out 😭).

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. Dirty Peach is a mid-tone yellow peach.
