No one dislikes a nude lip, so when Kylie Jenner released three sticky sweet lip glosses, the Internet went crazy. Of course, they're all sold out, but you don't have to wait for a restock to get the look. Here are 15 alternatives for every Kylie Cosmetic gloss shade out there.
Two weeks ago, Jenner hinted at her latest shiny cosmetic creation via Instagram, and then finally revealed the full promotion music video which featured the lip glosses in all of their glory. In it, she drove the getaway car for a gang of criminal girls (who, of course, were wearing adorable lip gloss). The three shades went on sale on KylieCosmetics.com on April 1 and immediately sold out, leaving us all to hunt high and low for the perfect alternatives.
The three shades are all nudes, which are universally flattering and still diverse enough for all kinds of skin tones. The colors are named So Cute, Literally, and Like, and range from peachy pink nudes to deep, caramel brown hues.
The reviews are in, and these products are sweet smelling, great formulations that look gorgeous on their own or compliment lip liners from existing kits. You can mix these shades together easily as well for a custom look.
If you didn't get your hands on the glosses, worry not: here are my favorite alternative shades.
"So Cute" Alternatives
1. NARS Chelsea Girls
This is a cult favorite because peachy pink tones look great on everyone.
2. Armour Beauty Edie
All of Jenner's lip products smell sweet, but this tube has a vanilla and grapefruit scent. Yum!
3. MAC Mineralize Glass Lap Dog
So Cute is milky, just like this one.
4. Too Faced Melted Sugar
This ultra-light, powdery color is a trendier take on baby pink.
5. NYX Butter Gloss Fortune Cookie
This is my favorite gloss formulation on the market, and it's crazy affordable!
1. Urban Decay Naked
Urban Decay has great, creamy formulations in warm nude.
2. COVERGIRL Melted Toffee Colorlicious
This warmer, brown nude gloss is a great take on the color for darker skin tones.
3. Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl
Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss in Midnight Cowgirl, $22, Urban Decay
When you're feelin' yourself, a la Kylie Jenner, this is the shade to rock.
4. MAC Huggable Glass Pleasure First
Huggable Glass in Pleasure First, $20, MAC
Depending on the liner you use underneath, this can be dialed up or down.
5. NYX Butter Gloss Ginger Snap
This color + NYX's formulation = Major win.
1. Too Faced Melted Chocolate Honey
A deep, warm brown is a perfect dupe for Like.
2. Urban Decay Liar
Revolution High-Color Lip Gloss in Liar, $22, Urban Decay
This deep brown gloss has a reddish tint to it, which is a total '90s look.
3. Gerard Cosmetics Gloss in Cocoa Bean
This has a reddish tint to it, but it's still so subtle, it'll look super natural.
4. Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction
Drugstore alternatives for Like are definitely out there and this one can't be beat.
5. Maybelline Color Elixir in Caramel Infused
This super pigmented color is glossy without being sticky.
