3 New Kylie Cosmetics Lip Velvet Shades Launch Today (Update) – Allure Magazine
UPDATE (May 24, 2017 3:30 p.m. EST): Kylie Jenner just revealed the three Kylie Cosmetics Lip Velvet shades she’s been teasing for the past couple weeks on her Snapchat Story. Just as we hoped, the new hues are bolder than the OG Velvet Lip Kits (they were more neutral than the Matte Lip Kit selection).
The trio has food-themed names — just like the new Kylighters. Our fingers were crossed for a grape shade, and we got just that: Grape Soda (a gray-toned lavender). There’s also Strawberry Cream, which is a punchy pink that has us craving Cream Savors of the same flavor. Poison Berry might not have the most delicious name of the bunch, but this shade is stunning. It’s a deep berry shade with a hint of brown. With the creamy matte finish, it’s sure to give you ’90s vibes all summer long.
Here are swatches of all of the new Kylie Cosmetics Lip Velvet shades.
This is what they look like on lips.
As expected, the boxes look just like any other Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit.
All three of the new Kylie Cosmetics Lip Velvet shades will be available for $27 each on kyliecosmetics at 3 p.m. PST.

Now that everyone who ordered the KKW Lip Kits has received them (and worn all four shades several times over) Kylie Jenner is about to add some more lipsticks from her namesake beauty brand to your makeup bag. Last night on Twitter, Jenner announced that she’d be revealing three new Kylie Cosmetics Lip Velvet shades today and that they’d be dropping on kyliecosmetics.com today as well. That’s right, you don’t have to wait a couple of days before you can shop them. Per her Tweet, she’ll be revealing what the shades look like and exactly when you can buy them later today on her Snapchat.
The Velvet Lip Kits originally launched back in March with the creamy matte formula available in four pink and nude shades. Jenner explained on Snap that she wanted to create something for her “girls who don’t really love a matte lip.” (They don’t dry all the way down, BTW.) We’re hoping Kylie Cosmetics adds some more bold shades to the mix to help us feel some summer vibes. (The rainy weather lately hasn’t been helping.) Maybe a coral or a grape? We’d even settle for a fun watermelon pink.
Jenner teased the three new shades earlier this month, but the picture she posted on Snapchat was in black and white. Unless you have magical eyes that can magically see color in B&W photos, then the sneak peek didn’t give anything away.
As for the official Kylie Cosmetics Lip Velvet announcement and release time, tune into Jenner’s personal Snapchat (as per usual) at 3 p.m. PST. (That’s 6 p.m. for us EST-ers.)
