9 Kylie Jenner Mary Jo K Lip Kit Alternatives To Shop If You Missed Out On The Real Deal
Nothing is more classic than a red lip, and we've seen it everywhere from movies to beauty icons. From Marilyn Monroe to Gwen Stefani, all of our favorites have been huge red lipstick fans, and the latest maven to add herself to the list is none other than Kylie Jenner. The makeup entrepreneur recently added a red lip to her Kylie Lip Kit, which sold out immediately after it was launched. If you missed out, shop these nine Mary Jo K alternatives so you can steal her gorgeous red pout.
Within 27 minutes, Kylie Jenner's new Lip Kit releases sold out on her site. That included Mary Jo K, a cool toned true red shade named after her adorable maternal grandmother, MJ. While we expected the new shades to be Valentine's Day-themed based on the Posie K release, I was blown away with a true red shade release. Jenner is known for her nude, pink and brown looks, and is rarely seen with a red lip. Just goes to show that Kylie has many tricks up her sleeve, and unexpected shades are to be expected. Checkmate, Kylie. Checkmate.
Cool toned red lips are iconic because this shade is universally flattering on all skin tones, ranging from ultra, pinky pale to deep brown. While orange reds or berry reds are exclusively flattering to certain skin tones, this middle-of-the-road shade is all around perfection.
Here are my favorite alternatives for Mary Jo K.
If you struggle with dry and cracked lips, this moisturizing formula will be perfect for you.
2. Makeup Forever Aqua Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Iconic Red

The name matches this shade to a T: Tis is a universal shade that icons have been rocking since the very beginning.
3. Smashbox Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Laquer in Legendary Red
Smashbox Be Legendary Long Wear Lip Laquer in Legendary Red, $12, Sephora
This formula will give a wetter, shinier look than Kylie's matte shade.
If you prefer a warmer red, this is for you!
5. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Candy Apple

Because liquid lipstick can settle in fine lines, prep your lips with a balm and a liner of any shade. Get creative with a pink or nude undertone.
Cool tones are the most universally complimentary, and this shade is bold enough to make a unique statement.
YouTube sensation and makeup artist Jeffree Star created the Velour Liquid Lipstick line, and it's a hit among YouTubers and professionals.
I love this bright, orange red that will compliment warm, medium skin tones.
This liquid lipstick formula is by far my favorite. It has a mousey texture that won't dry out your pout.
