Kylie Cosmetics Vacation edition ultra glows

kylie cosmetics ultra glow

You should all know by now I am a massive Kylie cosmetics fan, although I’ve been really good and resisted a lot of the recent collections, I do love her liquid lip kit sets, bronze eyeshadow palette and her kylighters to name just a few. But when I saw her snapchat recently with this new vacation edition collection I lost my shit Im not going to lie ha! The packaging and products had me drooling, I am a sucker for nude, and gold and this packaging is probably her best yet. well done Kylie!! and plus I am a massive highlighter junkie so obvs I was drawn to the highlighters out of the whole collection surprise surprise, I definitely need highlighter rehab!!

 

I also really wanted the wet set highlighter palette as well but it sold out while I was checking out, not going to lie I was devastated as I did really want it and it was so much easier to order everything together rather than 2 separate orders and get custom fees!! The dreaded custom fees has what’s put me off ordering any Kylie stuff for a while if I’m honest but I knew I had to have this collection so I gave in and just got these ultra glow loose pigment highlighters, they were $14 each, which is quite reasonable I would say. She has 3 shades to choose from and I obviously had to get all 3 because like I said I have serious issues when it comes to highlighters.

 Santorini – a shimmering silver Champaign, but I think it looks more like a white pearl shade

Fiji – A shimmering soft gold, I would say this is a true gold.

Tahiti – A shimmering Light rose gold, I would say its more pinky rose

The delivery was pretty standard and arrived about 2 weeks after ordering and I got a £15 custom fee which wasn’t to bad considering royal mail charge an £8 handing fee!!

The only thing I was gutted about was the fact I didn’t get the vacation note card thing she sends, it seems like it was really hit and miss on who got them which I think is bad considering I ordered 3 of the vacation edition products and spent $42 not including shipping, I know it’s not a massive deal over a card but I love collecting them.

I absolutely love the packaging on these as well, I would say it was pretty standard packaging for loose pigments,I love the Kylie Jenner writing in gold, but I do think it would have made it even more pretty and luxurious if the bottom was maybe see through glass or plastic so you could see the pigments inside. But overall I do like it.

I have been playing with these all weekend, and I’m actually in love, I can’t get over how pigmented they are, I use Santorini on the cheeks as a highlighter and used Fiji on the eyes, I feel like these can be really versatile and you can use them pretty much anywhere and the body too, to give you that gorgeous glowy skin!! I was worried when I first swatched them as it did look really glittery but when applied it doesn’t look glittery at all on the face and really melts into the skin, Santorini is probably my favourite out the 3 as its more suitable for my skin tone but I will definitely be using the other ones on the eyes and body or when Im more tanned.

I’m definitely hoping Kylie makes these permanent and brings out more shades as these are so gorgeous and will be very popular. I’m really glad I decided to get them and I’m also really happy I managed to order the wet set palette and velvets the other day when she restocked, so hopefully they will be here next week, keep a look out as I will probably review those as well.

 

Did you pick anything up from this collection or are you hoping she restocks soon so you can grab something?

Thanks for reading xo

    These are stunning! Tahiti is my fave! I love how you lost your shit over these haha! I’ve not bought anything from Kylie as it seems so hard to catch some stock and also those pesky customs fees just make it so expensive! Glad you love what you got though.

    I saw these swatches on your insta too and was blown away then! They look so pretty on you! I love how the glow isn’t to harsh on your cheekbone too. I just wish we dodnt have to order from the u.s as it just makes the cost a bit too much.

    Oft these look beautiful! I love reading reviews about US brands. I’ve watched so many YouTube videos about this new collection.

    Wow, these look amazing! I can never keep up with Kylie’s makeup brand. I feel like they release something new every month! I wouldn’t mind picking these up though. They look too good to pass up.
