We won’t name names, but there have been several beauty releases that just don’t live up to the hype. Add to that, some just don’t flatter brown skin and until a woman of color swatches a new release, you really don’t know for sure.

Vlogger MakeupShayla just reviewed the KKW x Kylie Cosmetics collab on YouTube. If you’re a woman of color, you may wanna check out how each shade looks on her skin tone before you cash out on the upcoming KKW x Kylie restock tomorrow at 3 p.m., PST.

First thing, Shayla points out is that these aren’t what you’d usually associate with the term “liquid lipstick,” but they aren’t glosses either. It’s more like a mix of the two with a creamy consistency, and it’s one that Kim formulated herself.

Before applying the shades, Shayla starts with MAC lipliner in Cork ($17.50, here).

First up, Kimberly. Shayla describes it as almost a mixture of MAC Peachstock lipstick ($17) and MAC Myth lipstick ($17).

On to Kim, a peachier shade. According to Shayla, this shade looks much pinker in skin swatches, but once she tried it on her lips she noticed a peachy undertone. Since it’s such a light shade, in the future she said she’d probably wear it after lining her entire lip in the Cork liner.

Next, Kimmie. “If you have a deeper skin tone, this would be pretty-pretty nice as a nude pink,” she says.

Shayla calls Kiki the “true Kardashian color” reminiscent of the pinky brown shade Kylie wore back in the day.

While Shayla gives the collection a two thumbs up, she still counts Exposed as the best Kylie Cosmetic shade for her skin tone.

Is the collection a must-buy for WOC? Here are Shayla’s final thoughts.
