Kylie Kylighter packaging

Hey lovelees ♥ This will be another series of Is it Dope?  Kylie Cosmetics came out with the long-awaited highlighter called Kylighter. Just like a million of other highlighter junkies I was on my computer as soon as they released so I could get my hands on one. The shade Cotton Candy Cream sold out in minutes about 3 minutes to be exact but I was able to grab Banana Split. To see if this Kylighter lived up to its expectations, keep reading. 

Kylie Kylighter Banana Split

The shade Banana Split is described as a true gold and Kylie mentioned this shade will work best on light to medium skin tones. 

Pros

  • Product can be built up to the desired effect
  • Compact packaging
  • Mirror included
  • Blendable  

Cons

  • Must dig into product to get any on brush
  • Poor packaging design
  • Not unique
  • Glittery 

 

Kylie Kylighter Banana Split swatches

The formula has the consistency of a pressed pigment rather than a powder so that makes it hard to get any product on your brush. When I first applied it to my cheeks the application looked splotchy. 

 

Highlighting brushes
The first brush (Sigma Tapered Highlighter)  was the only brush that applied the Kylighter.

 

Review/ Small rant

Kylie needs to get it together, we always get hyped for her products and then it’s a miss. Come on, if Makeup Revolution & Wet n Wild can come out with some bomb highlighters so can Kylie! It’s just frustrating I was so excited for this highlighter and totally disappointed all at the same time. The highlight is doable but there better highlighters out there. For the price, packaging, and pigment this is NOT DOPE! Save your money and buy the new ABH Glow Kit. My husband even said, “Babe you know the first batch she comes out with is always crap”. You know what he’s right.

FYI: Relaunch will be this Thursday 3/9 at 3:00 PM PST. 

Price: $30.00 US (with shipping)  

I hope you enjoyed this post. Please follow for more beauty posts ♥

That’s the joy of makeup! You win some you loose some. But I would think hers would be on point! If wet & wild can get it together why can’t she??

I’m so sorry 🙁 maybe the shades you got will be different. I didn’t mean to spoil it for you.

no I love the honesty!! it worried me when she didn’t show the swatch application on her snap but maybe ill be lucky with a batch. Love your blog!

Thanks love means a lot, cant wait to see your review when you post it also😘

Great review, it’s just annoying at this point. If she hypes up the product so much she should be able to deliever on those expectations.

Reply

Thanks love and yup I agree with you, many other brands do it so whats the issue? 🙄

I was not psyched for these because I feared this would happen. But if you “need” more highlighters, I am loving the Casey Holmes Palette and it is amazing and does not have any of the cons you list. <3 I got my package btw and I love it 😀

Reply

Yea def pass on this one, I am not sure if the other shades are the same. I swatched that one in store and it looked gorgeous but I ended up getting the new glow kit which I am obsessed with it. I am so glad you love your package😘

Ah I’ve been dying to read a review on her kylighters! I was debating on getting one but to be honest her products just don’t do it for me. I was especially disappointed with her lip kits. I was lucky (not really lucky) to get one when she very first came out with them, I think it was the second time she launched it and I’ve never been sooooo disappointed in it. Idk if she’s changed her formula over time but I haven’t even bothered trying it again. She’s really overrated and people just go goo-goo-ga-ga over it because it’s “Kylie”. Love the review!

xo, JJ

Thanks love I know she hypes us up
So much and then it sucks when we’re disappointed! She ended up changing her formula and it’s a lot better and comfortable to wear so like Maliboo has that formula but everything else has been trash😤

Reply

Mirror, finally! I don’t know her to be a huge fan of the highlighter so perhaps that’s why it’s so subtle. xx

Reply

That’s a good way to think of it, I was just really surprised. It just looks like glitter on the face.

Reply

Thins highlighter is the perfection but i Honestly don’t want to buy it because it’s so expensive. I hope to find good dupes of it

Reply

There so many better highlighters out there personally this one was my least fav so I don’t think it’s worth it. Makeup revolutions golden goddess is a good dupe

Reply

really thanks for this post. Okay, now I go out to buy this highlighter because i want it now

Reply

😘😘😘🙌🏻 hehe you will love the golden Goddess one by makeup Revolution

YES. it’s so perfect
