Kylie Jenner's self-given moniker of King Kylie is now officially true as she's basically become the king — or queen — of lippies. Due to the success of the Kylie Lip Kits, Kylie Cosmetics is expanding but not before launching matte metals. These Kylie Jenner Matte Metal alternatives are going to help you nail the look of Jenner's latest release.
It sounds melodramatic to say, but remembering a time when Kylie Lip Kits weren't the talk of the Internet beauty community is actually difficult. Every since Jenner first released the original three matte liquid Lip Kits in November of last year, they've been a staple of Internet gossip. Whether its Jenner posting cryptic messages on her social media or her straight-up announcing a new Lip Kit restock, she's a damn pro at keeping her fans guessing as to what's happening next with Kylie Cosmetics.
Next up for the reality star? It seems like a lot. Not only has Jenner taken the world of lipsticks by storms, but there are tons of internet rumors floating around that she's launching Kylie Cosmetics eyeshadows, liners, and brow products. Considering that Jenner is known not just for her matte, nude lip colors but her entire, typically all-matte look, expanding to other products makes total sense.
Until those rumors are confirmed, though, one product everyone knows is coming is the Kylie Matte Metal Lip Kit.
Jenner debuted the new Lip Kits on Sunday via social media. Her SnapChat and the Kylie Cosmetics Instagram account were full of sneak peeks of the hues. Jenner's three new shades — Reign, King, and Heir — are bought to be successes, but it's because of the success that you may need an alternative.
If you miss out on the launch of the Kylie Jenner Matte Metal Lip Kits, which still have no release date as of Tuesday night, these lippies will get you through until the next restock.
Reign is a gorgeous bronze, metallic plum, but Too Faced's Jelly features the same plum tone with a perfect metallic sheen.

Kat Von D can basically do no wrong, and this gorgeous metallic-flecked berry shade is proof.

Of course King is a golden shade. This gold lippie from NYX is definitely intensely pigmented, but with it's metallic sheen, a light touch will get you super close to King.
If you're willing to splurge for your Kylie Matte Metal Lip Kit alternative, here's your go to duplicate for King.
Heir is a stunning shimmering, metallic peach, and Stila's Stay All Day in Dolce is an incredible dupe. While the liquid lip is a shimmer, more than a metallic, Heir actually seems to be the most subtle of the metallics making this alternative the perfect choice.
While this is a more glossy finish, the color of this stunning lipstick is definitely close to that of Heir, and it's shimmering flecks give it that metallic edge.
