Kylie Jenner's New Lip Kit Colour Is NOT What We Expected
Are your lips ready? Kylie Jenner, possessor of the world’s most overanalyzed pair of lips, has just announced a new addition to her Lip Kit collection. A refresher: The liquid lipstick and liner kits launched back in December with three shades of nude, from pink-taupe to straight-up brown, and induced millions of tears and angry tweets as they immediately sold out and started selling for exorbitant amounts of money on eBay. Jenner promised she would be restocking soon, which she did and then some. According to her Instagram, she will be launching three new colours in a special Valentine’s collection that also boasts “a new, very exclusive formula.” More importantly, the first shade from the new collection is quite unexpected from the nude-lip queen: It’s pink. Not nude pink, not beige pink, but straight-up, unabashedly in-your-face pink:
Very excited to share with you one out of three of my new colours for my valentine collection coming up. I've been working on a new very exclusive formula that I have absolutely fell in love with.. But now I need your help on picking a name for this beauty! Go over to @lipkitbykylie for more info!

Perhaps Jenner heard our decree that pink is every cool girl’s favourite lip colour. More likely, she’s simply being a smart businesswoman and realising her signature taupe doesn’t necessarily flatter every skin tone (this beauty editor can attest to that—tear). We’ll be eagerly awaiting the next two colours in the V-Day collection. Fingers crossed for lavender.
Love liquid lipstick but didn’t get your hands of Jenner’s Lip Kit? Try MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour (£21)—the finish is like highly-pigmented suede and it comes in 15 shades.
