Kylie Cosmetics Metal Matte lipstick ‘Reign’ : FOTD, Review & Swatches

Author Nidhi 

Hello Friends :-) 

Today I am reviewing one of the best lip colors in my makeup stash and one of my favourite lipsticks which is the Kylie metal lipstick in shade Reign. Being a hard core fan of every deep, dark and bright lip colors, this lipstick stands above them all. Read on to know why I love it so much.

Product description (by company): Liquid lipstick meets metallic. The Metal Lipstick provides bold metallic lips with a creamy feel and rich mousey texture. While this is a long wearing formula, it does not ever dry down on your lips, lips remain moisturized and comfortable with a shimmering metallic finish. For an ultra-dramatic look, layer Reign over the top of your favorite matte lipstick.

Price: 18$ or 2000 INR

Net wt.: 3 ml

Available: IG sellers

My Experience:

Shade: Reign is a deep metallic copper as described by the brand. The description is very true and the color is indeed a copper shade with a high metallic finish. The lipcolor is a deep copper brown shade with micro shimmers that leave a metallic shine once set. Bored of your usual mattes, this color came as a welcome change in my lipstick stack and is superb to add some shine along with a dark shade on any dull day.

The shade is universally flattering and wearable any time of the day.

Texture: The liquid lipstick has a nice creamy texture that applies easily. It is highly pigmented and a single coat is all you need for a great color pay-off. It settles down to a fully matte texture within seconds of application and doesn’t budge at all after that.

The shade is non-drying even after been matte and with shimmers. It does not feather or bleed and doesn’t stain the lips even.

Lasting Power: The lip color has an amazing staying power and stays on for 7 hours at a stretch. It easily survives a full meal and even light snacks in between. I hardly see it fading away even after hours. It fades away evenly and I prefer using a proper makeup remover to get every last bit of this color off my lips completely.

Packaging: The lipcolor comes housed in a transparent plastic cylindrical tube with a tight black screw cap on top. The pack shows the pretty Kylie design on it and the see through pack allows for super easy identification. The pack is sturdy and travel friendly. The long slender foam tip applicator helps to apply the lip color efficiently.


What I like:

  • Gorgeous color
  • Dark and shimmery shade to suit one and all
  • Completely matte once set
  • Brilliant pigmentation
  • Non drying
  • High metallic shine
  • Sturdy and pretty packaging
  • Fantastic staying power
  • No feathering/bleeding of color

What I dislike:

  • Not easily available and high price.

Overall, If you are looking for a perfect party wear shade to compliment all your pretty and costly ethnic wear then do grab this as fast as you can. You will never ever regret spending a huge sum on this one. The shade is definitely a head turner and will make you stand out.
