With so many Kylie Lip Kit colors to choose from — neutrals, nudes, pinks, reds, blues, blacks, oh my!— you are probably facing a dilemma. Which Kylie Lip Kit best suits your skin tone? Will the baby blue Skylie wash out pale skin? Will the gothic plum majesty of Kourt K or the dusty nude of Exposed do nothing for olive tones? So. Many. Questions. The struggle is real but it's not insurmountable! Thankfully, Kylie Jenner posted a Lip Kit video on her app, displaying a variety of Lip Kit shades on four different skin tones. The clip is less than two minutes in length, but it's fun. It also offers factoids about KLKs — remember, the Dolce K Lip Kit was named after Jenner's childhood dog.
The video doesn't list off which colors look best with which skin tone. Instead, it demonstrates the visual options and comparisons. Honestly, I walked away from the video thinking, "You know, the Kylie Lip Kits are pretty universal and most shades are wearable regardless of skin tone!" It's really a matte(r) of personal preference and the look you are going for at the end of the day.
The video lives on Jenner's app, which is subscription-based and the hub of Lip Kit info.
Will the coffee-hued True Brown K look good on you? Probably! But this video is almost like going for a test drive. It's so, so helpful.
In the clip, four models, ranging from fair-skinned to dark-skinned, each try on Koko, Candy, Mary Jo, Dolce, Exposed, and more. They fully display the contrasts.
Here are some other vivid contrasts. Check out King Kylie herself, puckering up in Dolce with her bronzy skin.
Now, observe vlogger MakeupShayla, who is flawless, also rocking Dolce. They both slay the shade in different ways. Yes, the colors look different on everyone and that's a beautiful thing.
Witness Kylie rocking that scarlet Mary Jo K. The red in her jacket totally picks up the red in her lips and vice versa.
This is artist Amra Olevic, wearing Mary Jo K, which looks totally different against her champagne-y, glowing skin.
You can tell the depth of the shades based on different skin tones. You can get an idea of how it will look on you by peeping how it looks on a model or another person with a skin tone closest to your own! Yes, you have to account for lighting and filters. But these are decent gauges. The video really is my favorite of all comparative methods.
The clip is really meant to be an example of how the Kylie Lip kits would look on similar skin tones. It's not really straight forward recommendations. But I still found it to be highly effective and a terrific tool for determining which colors to try based on visual comparison.
