First up, let's talk about Brown Sugar — the most important color in the bunch. Kylie says "I really wanted to create the perfect nude for deeper skin tones."
Given that Kylie has been called out MULTIPLE times for appropriating cornrows, and for treating Black women as accessories, this move towards inclusivity shows that she — or someone on her team, at least — has heard the criticism, and is attempting to course-correct.
And a comparison swatch, showing how it differs from existing Kylie shade, True Brown.
Brown Sugar (left) is a lot lighter and more chestnut-toned; True Brown (right) is much, much deeper. I'd be interested to see it swatched next to similarly neutral shades in Kylie's line — colors like Maliboo and Dolce K.
Modelled by BFF Jordyn Woods, the color is exactly what it sounds like — a dusty shade of pastel peach.
Jordyn was previously the inspiration for intense orange Lip Kit color, 22.
And luckily you don't have long to wait for these colors: All three new shades launch Friday, August 26, at 12pm PST!
Each Lip Kit kolor will come with a matching lip pencil, and will be available at Kylie Cosmetics for $29. But set an alarm if you want one of these — you KNOW how fast Kylie's new shades sell out.
Now tell me: Which of these shades do you like best? What things will Kylie realize next?
Personally, I hope that she continues to show her lip colors on different skin tones — maybe she'll even swatch them that way, too. Anyway. Let me know yr feelings in the comments — maybe even tell me what things YOU'VE realized lately — or over on Facebook!
