It's safe to say that Kylie Jenner's Lip Kits are the most coveted, hard-to-get beauty products on the market today. At $29 a pop, they aren't cheap either. 

Which is why I haven't tried them until now, four months shy of a year after they launched. I managed to get my hands on four of the Lip Kits and all I could think when I started trying them was, There are so many dupes for these that are cheaper and easier to get! 

Let's start with Candy K, one of Kylie's most popular lip colors. It's a soft nude with a pink undertone and the matte formula really does live up to its non-drying claim.

For $21, TwoFaced's Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Child star is Candy K's more accessible twin sister!

Here's Kylie's True Brown K shade. It's so '90s and everyone loves it.

But again, for $8 less, TwoFaced's Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Naughty by Nature is just as good, although you do need to wear chapstick underneath.

Time for Kourt K! This shade is named after Kylie's sister Kourtney, and it's hella hard to apply. There's also some cracking that happens, which is never a good look.

I much prefer Kat Von D's $20 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Exorcism. I've been wearing it for a year and can vouch for up to 5 hours of perfect wear — again, with a bit of chapstick underneath.

Kylie named her Mary Jo lip color after her grandmother on Kris Jenner's side. It's a bold red with an orange undertone.

Currently available here.

Unfortunately, Mary Jo is kind of drying, and at $9.49, Revlon's Matte Balm in Standout is rich, moisturizing, and hyper-pigmented. It's the perfect gateway to matte lipsticks if you've never tried one.
