Just like the Olympians in Rio, Kylie Jenner is going for the gold when it comes to her 19th birthday, which is August 10. The Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Edition Collection, which is available up until Jenner's actual bday, features not one but two gold lip products. There is the Metal Matte, named "Lord," and a Kylie Gloss called "Poppin." Both are gilded and gorgeous. But what is the main difference between the gold lippies? How is the Poppin Gloss different from the Lord Metal Matte, other than the basic texture and formula?
The shades, which are nestled in the limited edition, gold Birthday Edition packaging, are quite similar. They both are rich, pigmented, and look metallic and melted. Judging from the photo of the tubes and swatches side by side, the gloss appears a bit more sheer than the matte, which is thicker, creamier, and, well, more metallic. Since I have several Kylie Glosses and one of the Metal Mattes from her Coachella Collection, I can attest that the Metal Matte texture is generally airier and more mousse-like.
You can easily pair Poppin and Lord, mixing textures and depth for a customized look. You could also wear either or both with the maroon Leo Lip Kit, which is also part of the Kylie Jenner Birthday Edition Collection. Because why not?
Gold-infused and beautiful! That's pretty much Poppin and Lord!
Leo is also rather stunning. It's such a deep, sexy shade and can be enhanced with a slick of Poppin or Lord. Why not do a gold-dipped lip?
Makeup Shayla did it!
Popping is $16, while Lord is $19. So that's how these products will impact your budget should you decide to shop.
The whole collection... it's gold AF.
The Birthday Edition Collection goes back on sale on Thursday, August 4 at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT. Why not grab a tube of Poppin, Lord, Leo, or both?
So much shimmer.
Gold-drenched goodness! Proceed to paint those pouts in gold.
