How To Get The Kylie Lip Kit Look On A Budget If You Haven't Snagged The Real Deal Yet
Whether you can't swing the cash for her rather pricey lip kits or just miss out on every lighting-fast launch, you aren't alone in not having your hands on Kylie Jenner's latest lip shades. Luckily, there are tons of ways to copy each and every shade for less. Here's how to get the Kylie Lip Kit look on a budget.
The Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits retail for $29 and come with a liquid lipstick and matching lip liner. That price is the top of the food chain when it comes to liquid lipsticks, especially when you consider the drugstore now offers formulas for $7 or less. Plus, shipping ain't free — it costs $8.95 on top of sales tax, too.
What's more, Jenner's shades are nothing uncommon: warm, spicy nudes, pinks, browns, reds and now deep burgundy are all part of liquid lipstick collections everywhere. There are tons of alternatives on the market, and most are at the drugstore for less than half the price. Jenner's signature look is characterized by overdrawn, matte lips, but you don't have to take the same interpretation on these shades. Swap a matte lip for a lipstick, a gloss, or play with lip liner and lipstick combos to get a truly unique look that is inspired by Kylie's Lip Kits. The world is your (lipstick) oyster!
If you want to copy Kylie's Lip Kit look for less, here's how.
1. Shop Online
Exclusive online brands like ColourPop and Jefree Star Cosmetics have a wide range of trendy, quality lip colors. If you want to copy Jenner's brown lip trend, but aren't sure where to begin, try online brands.
Jenner's True Brown K isn't the only truly brown matte lip on the market.

2. Shop The Drugstore Makeup Aisle
Some of the most popular, cult favorite matte lipstick formulas come from the drugstore. For just a few bucks, you can easily copy Jenner's Lip Kit looks.
If you can't get an exact dupe at the drugstore, try experimenting with different liners as a base.
This semi-matte formula dries comfortably, just like the Lip Kits.
3. Shop Alternative Formulas
You can still rock the Lip Kit shades without having a fully matte lip, especially if you're prone to dry lips. Look for gloss and satin finishes in the classic Kylie shades.
Metallic finishes can be a different twist on the now well-known Lip Kit looks. You can top a matte liquid lipstick with gloss to make a more moisturizing, long wearing color.
If you absolutely have to have the matte lip, try buying a drugstore alternative color and topping it off with a formula transformer. Instant dupe!
