KYLIE COSMETICS GLOSS vs. COLOURPOP GLOSS

Okay, so now that we're all fully aware of Kylie Cosmetics and Colourpop sharing a vastly similar (well, the exact same ingredients wise) formula for the liquid lipsticks, are the glosses the same too? Are they going to cause ANOTHER drama surrounding Spatz Lab? When I first saw the new glosses swatched by the Colourpop girls on their Snapchat, I assumed they'd be exactly the same, so of course I ordered some *duh* The brand has released 21 colours in 4 different finishes: sheer, creme, metallic and sheer-metallic.

Scent
The Kylie Cosmetics gloss (and other products) smell exactly like buttercream frosting. Colourpop's glosses smell a little plastic-y. Which, for $6 you can't complain about, but I still way prefer the Kylie gloss scent.. so much so that I'm willing to pay for it.

Price
Kylie charges a decent price of $15 as opposed to the minimal price of $6 that Colourpop stick to. I guess it really depends what you are used to paying for products, but I think $15 is a good price for the Kylie glosses given the insane pigment. (Mac Vamplify are £18 and are closest in terms of pigment) I did publish my review here and I haven't found a product that even matches up to it, let alone beats it yet in terms of opacity or scent! The one thing to factor into the price is the shipping from the US to the UK. Both brands charge $15 shipping, however Colourpop charges $25 if you order more than 2-3 items, whereas I'm not aware that Kylie Cosmetics do that. Then you have to think about customs on top, so it's worth using a courier (guide) if you don't mind waiting a little while longer to nab a product!

Lasting Power
This is always a tricky one for glosses, because you can't go 'yeah so I had a cup of coffee guys, and it stayed on like magic' as you would in a lipstick review. Glosses come off really easily, and there is never really a huge difference between glosses dwindling away throughout the day, but if I had to rate the lasting power of the two and compare, I'd say they're around the same. No liquid product is safe if you're eating and drinking throughout the day,  have to re-apply both evenly. One thing I did notice, was that the Colourpop glosses appear to separate a little on the lips and don't stay as opaque as when they're swatched, which can be annoying. But again, my mind just goes back to the whole 'it's $6" point. They do wear better over a liner or lipstick too.

The Applicator
The one thing that bugs me is the applicator for the Kylie gloss! I mean, I feel like even the $6 product has a better applicator. I know that Kylie mentioned that the formula is too thick for the doe foot style wands, but I really don't think that's true. I personally hate the applicator on the Kylie glosses but I love the Colourpop one, as it's very easy to apply evenly. They actually recently changed the applicators for all their lip products, making them fluffier, which works well for the glosses (not so much for the other products such as matte lips!)

Overall, I would probably still recommend people buy Kylie Cosmetics lip glosses. They can be worn without a lipstick or lip liner underneath and look really great and the lasting power beats Colourpop by miles. The Colourpop ones are good, but they're only 'good for the price' and I don't really like the scent or the way they wear throughout the day. Yes, the KC ones are expensive at around £20 with shipping and fees.. but really, I'd buy them just for the nice scent alone. *shrugs*

Have you guys tried anything from Colourpop or the Kylie glosses? Let me know what you thought of them!

  1. I really liked this post, I appreciate products with a good lasting power so although I don't particularly think I will purchase anything from Kylie Cosmetics it is nice to know that their products are great in some capacities. I always love the colours she comes out with, great post! Xx

  2. I have the Kylie Cosmetics lip gloss in "Like" and I've been absolutely loving it! It has amazing pigmentation and the smell really is heavenly. Great comparisons!

  3. Great post! I agree I hate the applicator it's so annoying literally every brand & gloss has the same style wand so I think Kylie just wanted to be different but it doesn't work. I love the MAC vamplify glosses, I think those are the only similar ones I have to Kylie! Xo

  4. Literally is so stunning. There's no beating it. I'd still be down to try some Colourpop products. I've only tried an eyeliner. :]

  11. Even though I haven't tried Kyle products, I can imagine they are better! I got my first colour pop order last week and wasn't that pleased.

  13. Al the shades you swatched have really impressive pigment for glosses! I've finally caved and done a Kylie order - I am a long-time ColourPop fan so will definitely be keeping an eye out for similar formulas with the liquid lipsticks...

  14. This is a great blog post! Very informative! I'm yet to try any KC products, I've read so many bad reviews and although i'd like to try- just to see for myself- I haven't wanted to pay the shipping & customs fees. I do appreciate how unbiased your review is though; so many love KC because they love Kylie, and make a point of saying that. It sounds like you love the glosses for the product which is awesome and opened my mind to them a little! :)
