Review: Kylie Metal Matte Lipsticks

kylie jenner metal matte lipstick swatches in heir and king k

As someone who has been 100% on board with the liquid lipstick hype over the last year or so, I've been interested in Kylie Jenner's range since she came out with them. I think some of her shades are really pretty, specifically Candy K and Dolce K, but I never purchased any of them for myself for some reason. I got my friend one as a Christmas present and have seen my friends use them and they look nice, but I was more interested in buying others like Kat Von D's and Jeffree Star's until I saw the metal mattes (although I do find it suspicious that she released them a little while after Jeffree posted a preview of the same sort of lipstick). Anyway, his aren't out yet so I was really anxious to get some of Kylie's. Red isn't really my color so I got the two others - Heir and King K. I had no trouble at all buying them and I'm not sure how fast they sold out considering these sort of shades probably aren't for everyone.

First up, Heir. This is a really pretty peachy pink shade with a metallic finish (obviously the whole idea behind the metal mattes) and as you can see I'm very pale, so it looks brighter on me than it might on others. I wasn't expecting it to be quite as bright and it looks even more so in real life. I think the formula of this one is a bit patchier than King K for some reason and it's a little difficult to get a really even finish. It does dry matte but if you touch your lips it will still transfer a bit, which I guess is fine if you don't mind touching up every once in a while. However, it's not extra matte so it doesn't feel too drying on the lips. Overall it's a really pretty shade and I think it'll look nice in the summer.

King K is definitely my favorite of the two shades. I was expecting it to be a lot more gold like it looked in some of her swatches, but it's super bronze on me, which I actually ended up really liking. As I said, the formula feels thicker than Heir's and it's easier to get a nice even application. I did have the same issue with it coming off a bit even after it dried though. Overall this is a great stand out shade and definitely adds a little something extra to your look, and I'll probably wear it a lot more than Heir. I had intended to post some photos that I took on my SLR which were better quality, but in the end the photos I took on my iPhone showed the colors much more accurately.

Let me know if you've tried any of her lipsticks and if these are something you'd try!

    1. I like to spend a bit more on good lipsticks so I didn't think the price was too bad, however compared to ones like Kat Von D's & Jeffree's it's definitely not quite as good quality for the price. I kind of think it's worth it though because it's such a unique finish. :)

  3. I was looking for a review of these ones so I'm glad you did one ! I own Dolce K & Posie K, love them, the formula is kinda light for liquid lipstick, dry less (even if, it's still matte as hell so of course the lips are drying) but I've heard the metallics had a different formula. I like King K but it looks like Guadalupe by La Splash, which I have, so I wanted to buy Heir so bad but got out of luck, it quickly sold out during the 2nd release. I'll wait because that peach colour will be perfect for summer holidays & tan skin.

    1. Glad I could help! I just looked up Guadalupe and it does look super similar! Are theirs any good? Heir would definitely be a nice summer color, I also kind of want to get her newest nude one when it comes out.

All the shades seem to suit a lot of skin tones which I think its great for versatility. You also look fab in these.
