It's no secret that the Lip Kit queen has been obsessed with makeup since the beginning, but she just shared a beauty tip that you probably never thought of before. According to a Kylie Cosmetics Instagram post, Kylie Jenner used black eyeliner as lipstick before the matte trend was cool. You might have thought the inspiration for her unconventional "Dead Of Knight" hue came from her fans, but it looks like Jenner has a history with black lipstick.
Jenner posted a collage of photos proving that she's been wearing black lipstick before it was cool, but there was one tiny detail that might suprise — she wasn't actually wearing lipstick in some of those photos. If you look closely at the caption, Jenner says that she used to use black eyeliner in lieu of lipstick. I've heard of people using liquid lipstick as eyeliner, but I've never heard of doing it the other way around before.
Instantly one question comes to my mind — is it even safe to wear eyeliner as lipstick? In short, yes. According to Teen Vogue, it's a trick that plenty of makeup artists out there use. Remember Rihanna's bright blue lip? Well, Teen Vogue uncovered that it was actually eyeliner as well, albeit paired with an actual liquid lipstick. While a liquid eyeliner might be a tad more drying than a pencil, I guess there really is no difference.
Nude lip colors might be this celebs' favorite, but she's had a long history of dark lip colors as well. Just look at the infamous teal lipstick throwback that the social media star loves to post every now and then. From her hair to her lip color, Jenner has always had a knack for unconventional hues, so I guess it only makes since that she was experimenting with the trend before liquid lipsticks could be found so readily.
However Jenner's obsession with lip color started, people are definitely loving newest dark creation. The Dead Of Knight Lip Kit sold out Friday in just a half an hour. You'd think that black would be the last to go considering how out-of-the-box it is, but I guess Jenner knows her fans well!
If you're bummed that you missed the first round of black Lip Kits, don't worry. Jenner still has her KyMajesty Metal Matte coming out later this month. Or you could always grab that liquid lipstick and sport the dark look while you wait for a Dead Of Knight restock.
