Koko Kollection Review

Hello everybody, today I will be reviewing the first ever Kylie Cosmetic’s collaboration. When Kylie Jenner first announced she would be doing a collaboration collection for her cosmetics line I was really hoping for her to team up with another big name in the makeup industry, so when she announced it was her sister Khloe Kardashian, I was a little bummed. With that being said though, I ended up totally loving this collection. With Khloe and Kylie being my favorite people in their celebirty filled family, I really think this “Kollection” really represents them both well.

This collection comes with 3 matte liquid lipsticks in the shades Okurrr, Khlo$, and Gorg. It also comes with 1 gloss in the shade Damn Gina. This set comes in the prettiest packaging, it is an all white and rose gold box with nice, pretty, cursive font. Of course the set name is “Koko Kollection”. The packaging of the actual product tubes have similiar design to the typical Kylie Cosmetics products but these are all completely rose gold with “KOKO” on the front. They are so pretty and glam just like Khloe can be. This set is sold all together for $40, which is an amazing price due to the fact that all seperate they would cost about $66. Currently these are sold out on the Kylie Cosmetics site and she has said they were limited edition…but with that being said, Kylie in the past has brought back all of her limited edition items, multiple times, so I wouldn’t be surpised if we saw these on the market again some time.

Now I want to talk about the actual products themselves. I find these to have the same great quality as the other original Kylie Cosmetics products. I love her liquid lipstick formula, it lasts for hours, and I mean like 8+ hours. They are transfer proof and just such amazing quality. I also really love her gloss, I do try and apply it lightly because a little goes a long way. I have reviewed Kylie products in pasts posts like this one here Makeup Haul/Review ft. Kylie Cosmetics & Jeffree Star and this one as well What’s in my bag: Lip Edition . The shades below top to bottom are Damn Gina, Khlo$, Gorg, and Okurrr.

Some specific things about this set that I was concerned with and wanted to mention was that I thought Gorg could possibly be a little patchy because I have heard similiar reviews on her shade Kourt K, and they are similiar in color. Although with Gorg, I have not noticed a problem with patchiness. I have always worn a berry lip liner underneath and I have loved this shade so far. It is a very pretty berry fall shade. The other shade I was concerned with was Okurrr. I think in swatches and photos I see on social media, the shade looks very bright pink and really vibrant and out there. I wasn’t sure if I would get much use out of this shade, but I have noticed in person that it is actually a lot more toned down. It is a very pretty pink but the brightness isn’t as crazy as I expected, I think this is a very pretty spring shade and I don’t own any color like this.

Overall I am very happy with this set. I love the Kardashian and Jenner girls, and I really love Kylie Cosmetics. Their products have yet to dissappoint me, and my collection seems to be growing bigger and bigger. If you’re interested in me trying to find dupes for these colors, let me know in the comments below and I can definitely work on it. Until next time, thanks for reading.

 

Makeup Haul/Review ft. Kylie Cosmetics & Jeffree Star

Hello everybody and Happy Friday! I can not believe we are down to our last 2 months of 2016. This year has flown by so quickly for me, but it has been an awesome year. I hope everyone else has had a great year, and we can all end it good as well. This post is getting up a little later than I wanted, and it is a fun makeup haul and some reviews, so let’s get started.

So the first product I want to talk to you all about is something I have been wanting to try out for a while. Cosmetic glitters! I am a part of a wonderful makeup group on Facebook and a lot of the girls on there (and boys) are very talented at makeup, and will do some really awesome looks with glitters. So I asked around and it seemed like a lot of them were using cosmetic glitter from bulkglitters.com as well as using Too Faced’s glitter glue. I have yet to get glitter glue, so I have not been able to wear my glitters in a look yet, but I do have some opinions on them. First, the price is awesome. I got these jars for $1.25 each, and they seem to have enough to last me a very very long time. They have varying sizes, so they even have a smaller jar for $1, and then they have bigger and bigger sizes as well. I thought $1.25 was an awesome price, especially for my first time trying glitters so I went with that. I got 8 different shades, Golden Eye, Star Struck Silver, Mint Julip, Emerald Earth, Slinky Silver, Springtime Blue, Bubblegum, and what appears to be my favorite shade of them all Black Copper Mine. The other thing I noticed about these are that they have different types of glitter, I got 7 different “ultra fine” ones, and then one “fine” glitter. I definitely recommend the “ultra fine” ones, simply because when I am looking at the “fine” one I got which is in Star Struck Silver, I can tell that the glitter specks look a lot bigger, and to me I think I prefer the smaller pieces of glitter. Overall though I am really excited to try them out and if you have any tips on using cosmetic glitters I would love to hear about them in the comments below.

Another brand I finally got to try out that I have been wanting to try is Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I know Jeffree Star can be a controversial in the makeup community but I still have heard awesome things about his products, so when he offered free shipping for 24 hours, I knew it was time to try it out. I was really just interested in trying out his Velour Liquid Lipstick formula, so I just ordered one liquid lipstick in the shade “Abused”. I got this shade which is a dark purple-ish black shade because with Halloween just passing I realized I have really never tried a really dark shade before so I figured I could try 2 new things at once. So I just received this yesterday and I have not gotten to wear it out yet, but I did try it on and I noticed 2 things about it. First, I am not sure this dark of a shade works well on me, and second, to me it had a very odd scent. I know Jeffree has some products with scents but I wasn’t sure this was one of them, but to me it almost smells like a strong root beer scent. It was such a strong scent, it made me feel like my lips were tingling. I really wanted to like this formula though, so I will definitely have to give it another try. I’d love to try his highlighters as well.

I also received 2 new liquid lipsticks from Kylie Cosmetics. I have used Kylie Cosmetics before and I love their Lipkits. I think their lip liners are the best lip liners on the market, in my opinion, they are extremely pigmented, creamy, and long lasting. I also have yet to find a liquid lipstick that is as long lasting as hers. I have worn Mary Jo K for 8 hours once with no touch ups. I also own her 3 original gloss shades, which I love. So when I found out on Halloween that she was giving away a free KyMajesty metallic liquid lipstick with every order, I decided to get a new shade of liquid lipstick, so I could also receive KyMajesty and try out her metallic lipsticks. First, let me say that the new matte liquid lipstick shade I bought is “Ginger” and I absolutely love it, it is a beautiful nude, slightly brown, slightly orange shade. Now for KyMajesty. I think it is definitely a unique shade to have, although I am not 100% sure on how I am going to wear it yet. I do think that it almost has a slightly blue tint to the color, which doesn’t bother me but I did originally think it would be more black. The only other thing I can say about KyMajesty and her metallic liquid lipsticks so far is that I thought the formula was a little more clumpy then the matte liquid lipstick ones, and it was just a little more messy to work with. For free, I am very happy with this KyMajesty, if I was actually paying for and purchasing a metallic liquid lipstick from Kylie Cosmetics, I would probably go for a different shade. Overall though, this was not a bad product.

Then finally I just wanted to quickly mention some Dollar Tree products that I tried out. I think I mentioned I bought these a while back to you guys, but I finally got around to opening them and testing them out and thought I would let you know what I think. Remember I bought these at Dollar Tree so they only cost me $1 a piece, which is not bad at all, can’t find anything cheaper. So I will start off by saying the L.A. Colors shimmering loose eyeshadow was a complete waste. I am not even going to discuss this product anymore because there is nothing to discuss. With the Elf smudge pot I got the shade “Poppin Party” and I think this is really creamy, and I love the formula but I was expecting a purple shade and it was much more of like a muddy dark gray or black to me. I would definitely like to try more shades though, for $1 it is very worth it. Then the Wet N Wild eyeshadow in the shade “Creme Brulee” is awesome! This is so pigmented and it is a great base shade, or priming shade for your lid before you use other shadow colors. I will definitely be picking more of these up because I think the product was great, especially for being only $1.

So that is all for my haul and review today everyone, I really appreciate you sticking around and reading this. I wanted to also let you know I am about 50 followers away from my first Twitter giveaway (@corinnascorner) if you are interested in entering that, make sure you follow me on twitter so you do not miss out. I am also nearing 2K on instagram (Corinnascornerxo) and will be doing an awesome giveaway for that as well. I am hoping to have a Bite Beauty review coming this weekend, and other than that I am not sure what post will be next. I have been really wanting to do more Lifestyle posts, instead of basically only beauty, so let me know in the comments if that would interest you, or if you have any ideas for posts. Until next time.
