If you’re obsessed with Kylie Jenner’s lip kit and have been trying to get your hands on it (in vain), don’t worry, I’ve got dupes! I did some snooping on the internet and went through my own collection to match some of those coveted shades to others that might be easier to get your hands on; take a look!
Dupe – NYX Soft Matte Lip cream in Abu Dhabi 99
So Dolce K is this rosey-nude shade with hints of taupe/gray in it. A great dupe I found for this was the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi (99). I wore the shade Monte Carlo (great dupe for Mary Jo K) for prom and I can tell you that these smell divine (vanilla), go on so smoothly although you will need a good coat for optimum opacity and dry matte just like Kylie’s. However, these do not dry powdery matte like Kylie’s, these are seriously drying and so make sure to keep covering up.
More dupes you can try out – Tarte TBT, Kat Von D Lolita, Colorpop Brink
Dupe – Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Thrill, MAC Lipsticks in Mehr & Velvet Teddy
Candy K is a lighter, dusty pink with nude tones & the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Thrill 05 is a great match to that shade. Again, it would dry matte just as Kylie’s would and give you the same look. For us over in India, however, this range isn’t available and so I came up with one which I bought and tried, happy to find it to match Candy K. Try MAC’s Velvet Teddy or Mehr, it’s the same pink beige-y shade, here’s a swatch of Velvet Teddy –
More dupes you can try out – Anastasia Pure Hollywood, Stila Caramello, Smashbox Always Sharp Lip Liner in Rosebud
Dupe – MAC Lipstick in Faux
Koko K is a soft, pink shade with nude, cool undertones. The best dupe for this one is the Colorpop Ultra Matte in Midi but for us here in India, try out MAC’s Lipstick in Faux.
More dupes – Tarte Tartiest Lip in Namaste, Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Milk Shake
Dupe – Stila Poutina & NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague
This is the more brighter of all shades and not as muted as Candy K, Dolce K or Koko K; it’s a pink-mauve shade. The perfect dupe for this is Stila Lip Cream in Poutina however, let me tell you from personal experience, it’s the toughest shade to get a hand on at Sephora here in Delhi. It’s always sold out and it comes into stock in limited quantities and gets sold out like hot cakes so I suggest you keep tracking the stocks for this one. The second one easily available is NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Prague.
More Dupes – Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Mother, Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Party Pink
Mary Jo K
Dupe – MAC Ruby Woo & NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Monte Carlo
It’s the bright, classic, all out Taylor Swift red that we’re talking about when Mary Jo K’s in question. Undeniably, as a dupe I wouldn’t want to leave out MAC’s Ruby Woo (all time favorite) & my personal favorite, Monte Carlo, for which, here’s a swatch –
And as extra, here’s a photo of me wearing it (3 years back) –
Under all that shy, it’s still super flashy, bright red haha.
Until next time,
