It's "Mini" time. Last week, Kylie Cosmetics indicated that the Kylie Cosmetics 2017 Valentine's Day Collection is one-time-only, indicating that the set would not be restocked in a slightly contradictory, slightly teasing Instagram post. Almost all of the Kylie Cosmetics Valentine's Day collection sold out upon launch, because of course it did. It's a tight, focused collection. But the Mini Matte set, featuring six sample-sized tubes of the brand's hero product aka matte liquid lipstick in red packaging, is coming back for one time only.
The brand has created Mini Matte sets with every special edition, including the 2016 Birthday Collection and the 2016 Holiday Collection. The Mini Matte set always sells out, since it offers a terrific way to sample a variety of long-wearing shades. When is the Kylie Cosmetics Valentine’s Day Mini Matte set restocking?
The Mini Mattes restock at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT on Monday, Feb. 6. According to the brand's social media posts, only the Minis will enjoy an encore.
This Mini Matte set boasts three brand new shades and three classic shades that have been available as full-sized Lip Kits.
Apricot is new. High Maintenance is new. Head Over Heels is new; it was also produced as a full-sized Lip Kit as part of the Val Day Collection. Apricot and High Maintenance were not created in full-sized, KLK iteration.
The classic shades that were reproduced in mini form as part of this set are Maliboo, Posie K, and Mary Jo K.
Here is the confirmation — only the Mini Mattes are back on Monday and they won't be back again. Unless, of course, Kylie Cosmetics has more surprises in store. It wouldn't be the first time the brand restocked a super limited edition item or collection.
Basically, you have a lot of shades to choose from — nudes, pinks, and berries. The Mini Set costs $36, so it shakes out to about six bucks a tube. These are totable and the formula lasts forever, so you won't blow through a tube too quickly.
Plus, you can decide if you want to commit to other full-sized Lip Kit by testing the formula and texture out with the Minis. Good luck grabbing a Mini Set later today!
BTW, this was the somewhat confusing and contradictory post from last week, suggesting that the Val Day Collection was only going to come around once. The fact that it said "may" be your last chance opened the door for hope, which the brand fulfilled with the Mini Matte restock.
