Feeling Exposed

So I may have bought another Kylie Jenner Lipkit #Whoops. I promised myself I wouldn’t, I swore that future Siobhan would not get sucked back into the hype and did not need to stay up until whatever godforsaken hour Kylie picked next in order to get my hands on another Lip Kit. I had three, three was enough but then I saw pictures of Exposed. ‘The perfect nude’ she called it. Nothing like Candy K or Koko K the swatches showed. My current love of nude matte liquid lipsticks got the better of me and there I was 11pm panicked whilst refreshing her website in order to get my hands on this new coveted shade.

Luckily things had improved, 5 minutes in the lip kit was mine and I didn’t have to break a sweat like a nervous woman hiding in the knicker aisle. The cost was the same as last, delivery was quick but this time I was greeted with one of those ugly silver custom charge slips requiring me to pay even more money just to get my hands on what I had already paid for #21stCenturyLifeProblemsAye

But now it is mine! First impressions, where does that orange undertone come from?! What’s really hard with the Kylie Lip Kit swatches is that the shade depends so heavily on your skin tone. I’ve seen swatches of Dolce K, one of the darker brown kits, look pale on some which can make it rather tricky when deciding on what shade will suit you best. Needless to say this didn’t stop the purchase and I’ve found Exposed dries down to bypass the orange instead leaving you with that more true brown nude shade that Kylie raves about. I wouldn’t say I’m head over heels in love, it’s nice but not something I will reach for everyday.

  • I really want to try these out! I keep hearing such mixed reviews!

    • I’ve been really impressed with the ones I’ve got but it’s hard to know what the colours will really be like xx

  • I’m a bit on the fence. I like the whole nude natural lip thing but there’s something in the color that makes you look just a tiny bit washed out. I feel like it needs a bit of pink or peach, just a hint.

    I love really nude lip colours on other people but they just don’t suit me! Wahh! I really do want to try a lipkit though! x


    • Not all nude colours suit me – sometimes I need a hint of a pinky lipstick applied on top!xx

  • This looks great on so many people but pale nudes never seem to suit me! :(

  • So, I am desperate to try these but just won’t pay for the shipping and everything. Somewhere like Selfridges needs to start stocking them. That nude really suits you! Xo

    I think future Siobhan made a great decision haha! This is such a perfect real nude to me on you! I would have to say I don’t think I’m going to purchase the lip kits because I couldn’t swatch them in store and a lot of nudes always look so awful on me, but this looks gorge! xx


    • Haha thank you! It was a risk getting it and it does look very different on me to the swatches online xx

  • AAAAAHHHH the curse of the grey customs slip! Doh!!! I hate them! Do you get them every time ordering Kylie lip kits? I know some peoples have slipped through the net…

    Ps-great colour. I agree-future/present Siobhan makes excellent decisions. X

    • This is the first time I’ve ever got the dreaded slip – think it was because I got one lip kit. When I ordered 3 I never got it xx

  • I’ve definitely heard mixed reviews on these but would love to try them myself x

  • when i saw this colour on kylie jenner on her snapchat i thought it was the best colour ever, but as soon as the swatches started coming out and people started getting I didn’t think it looked as nice in person and I know the shade would never look good on me! definitely think these shade really change depending on your skin tone x

    • I was exactly the same when I saw it on her Snapchat! It’s crazy how much they do change depending on your skin tone xx

  • That colour is gorgeous!

  • I have seen so many mixed reviews on these and still want one to see if I’m missing out! I hate the custom charges though… gets to me everytime!


  • This shade looks amazing on you! I really want to try the Kylie Lip Kits!

    xo, Liz

  • I want candy k so badly!! it looks like such an amazing colour


  • I want to try her lip kits so bad, but I am terrified of a customs charge!

    • Luckily they only seem to happen on orders of 1 or 2 – I think you need to spend over a certain amount to be able to avoid them!xx

  • It’s gorgeous! I want to try her kits but the price kills me. I can’t justify it!
