The Kylie Jenner Lip

For those of you who want to see what colours look like on, I am wearing Anna in the photo on the left and Soar in the photo on the right.

Whether you like the Jenner+Kardashian clan, or loathe them, you cannot deny that their makeup is always on point. Yes they have a team of makeup artists to help make them look beautiful but throughout the show* Kylie has often been the one to get daring with her makeup. The girl knows her stuff! Unless you've been under a rock you'll have seen her nude, nineties-esque lip online and in the beauty pages of our favourite glossies. Today I thought I'd share some of my favourite products for achieving the Kylie Jenner lip-look. Luscious pouts are where it's at..

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pink Venus-Okay so this is not strictly a brown-nude, in fact it leans a little bit lighter than Soar but if you don't want to go overboard, this is the lipliner for you. If you overdraw your lips with this one it looks a lot subtler in my opinion. Pink Venus also sits nicely under most nude lipsticks as well which makes it a winner in my eyes. It can be a tad drying so be sure to use a conditioning lip balm first if your lips aren't looking their best.

Nars Audacious Lipstick in Anna-The one and only. I won't rave on about this too much today but to me this is the signature Kylie lip colour. It may not be as matte as the colours she tends to favour but it's pretty close. This lipstick has amazing lasting power too. I've worn it at lunches and it doesn't fade. I love the luxe, magnetic packaging too. 

Mac Lip Pencil in Soar-Now according to Kim K, this is the lipliner Kylie uses and loves. As a result it is notoriously difficult to come by these days. I managed to find mine in Wellington which I think was a stroke of luck and the fact the Mac counters had just reopened after the public holidays. You can see above it makes my lips look fuller, even without overdrawing them. For reference, I did try this on overdrawn and liked how it looked. It'd be easy to get carried away though so be careful!

Buxom Full On Lip Cream in White Russian-These lip creams are designed to have a plumping effect. I wouldn't say it makes a drastic difference but it definitely is a lot more noticeable than some other lip plumping products I have tried previously. Again, if you're wanting something a bit more on the subtler side then you should check these out.

-Have you tried any products to achieve Kylie Jenner's signature lip? Which are your favourites?

*Yes I watch the Kardashians and I have no shame nor regrets about this admission. 


  1. Right now, I use either Jordana Sexy Mauve Lipliner, Jordana Taupe lipstick, Jordana Natural Touch lipstick or NYX Cannes Soft Matte Lip Cream to do the KJ lip. I'm so impressed with the Jordana ones - I used to be a bit of a brand snob, but some Jordana lipliners and lipsticks are actually quite good. I am soooo tempted to try NARS Anna!

  2. I'm going to keep an eye out for those Jordana products. I hear good things about their lipsticks & there's so many $2 shops around-no doubt I'll find them soon. x
