From fiery reds, airy nudes, ocean-inspired water hues, and earthy tones, too, read on to find the Kylie products for you!
16 Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, And Sagittarius) - The #Fire KoKo Collection For Our Fire Sign Dolls
Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner teamed up to release “In Love with the Koko” and “The Koko Collection” last year. Khloe Kardashian is known for rocking coral, orangey lips, which are a gorgeous contrast to her porcelain complexion. The “In Love with the Koko Collection” includes a set with four different lips. These shades range from “Sugar Plum” a gold nude gloss, to “Doll” and “Baby Girl” varying shades of fiery coral hues, and lastly “Bunny” a muted purple shade that Kylie personally loves. These shades not only remind of us smoldering, sultry fiery flames, but these shades are also perfect for a fire sign because they are bold and have to be worn with warmth and confidence. Khloe took to Instagram to say this about her lip collection, “I’m so in love with these babies!” Khloe, so are we!
15 Aries - Matte "Boss" Lip For This Strong, Confident Firey Sign
Aries girls are confident, courageous, and independent, which is why we think the shade “Boss” is perfect for this fire sign. Look no further than an Aries girl to see the next big promotion or future CEO. This red color is giving us some serious girl boss vibes. “Boss” launched earlier this month, and Kylie sported it on her Instagram page in anticipation of its debut, and we love the fire engine red. It’s the perfect cherry red lip and looks classy and sophisticated, while also nodding to old school Hollywood glamour, think the classic red of Marilyn Monroe. According to Refinery 29, Kourtney Kardashian is an Aries girl, and just like this strong fire sign, Kourtney is always upfront and ready to say what’s on her mind.
14 Leo - Lioness Inspired Golden Yellow Glow, "Butternut" Lip Is Star Of The Show
For this one, we’re inspired by Leo’s lioness. This bold gold yellow shade is called “Butternut” and it’s making us feel like we’re on a wildlife safari. This shade is reminiscent of the yellow glow from a fire’s flame and perfect for this fire sign. Leos are known for their courage, and you definitely need to be courageous to pull off this super unique shade, which happens to resemble a lion’s mane. According to Bustle, “This shade is not for the faint of heart, as it takes a very bold person to rock this golden orange hue.” We have to agree, this is for those who want to make a roar. According to Refinery 29, Kylie is a Leo herself, which is no surprise considering she’s passionate and works hard to be her own boss.
13 Sagittarius - "Pumpkin" Orange For This Adventure Loving Fall Sign
Can it be fall already? This beautiful autumnal color is making us crave a pumpkin spice latte, and we want all the pumpkin and fall things, especially this gorgeous “Pumpkin” lip for our Sagittarius girls. Call us basic, but this burnt orange shade is definitely a color for our bold fire signs. Sagittarius girls are known for being adventurous and the Halloween-y hue definitely makes a statement. According to Pop Sugar, “Last year this burnt orange matte shade led to visions of PSLs dancing in your head. And now (at least until it sells out!), you can re-create all the autumnal lip art your heart desires.” Regardless of summer being right around the corner, we’re dreaming of sweater-weather, fall scented candles, and this “Pumpkin” liquid lip!
12 Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, And Aquarius) - KKW X Kylie Cosmetics, Nude Pinks For This Meeting Of The Minds, Twin Looks For These Signs
We’ve picked the KKW x Kylie Cosmetics collaboration to represent our air signs. According to Refinery 29, Kim is a Libra, which doesn’t surprise us, but we love this collection for our Gemini and Aquarius girls too! This time last year, Kylie and Kim teamed up to launch these nude pink shades. Kylie took to Instagram to tell her fans, “I love being able to collaborate with my sisters!” This set included colors, “Kimberly,” “Kim,” “Kiki,” and “Kimme.” Air signs can be a little narcissistic, but there’s definitely no confusing these lips as anything but the KKW collaboration. These were a different formula, which Kylie called, “authentic,” and “organic;” these shades were crème liquid lips, versus her normal matte and velvet lips.
11 Gemini - "Bare" Is Charming And Natural For This Airy Beauty
We’re living for this fairy, ethereal, floral festival look. Chrisspy, famous YouTuber, Instagrammer, and LA-based makeup artist, used a Kylie Lip Kit for her blue hair, nude lip Coachella look. She used Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Lip Kit in “Bare,” and it’s giving us some serious Ferris wheel, pastel hair, printed co-ord, festival vibes. This color was part of the “Send Me More Nudes” set and is also sold as an individual lip kit now. This color is perfect for a Gemini babe because Gemini girls are charming and pleasant, and this nude pink represents their airy personalities and appeal. According to Us Magazine, Kylie snapped that this previously sold out shade was being added “back to the family,” with Kylie Cosmetics April 2018 spring launch.
10 Libra - Kylie Named A "Libra" Lip, Romantic And Balanced Pale Nude Pink
We had to pick Kylie’s shade “Libra” for our Libra girls. This is a very pale nude, with a very slight pink tint. According to Bustle, “This is the lightest shade of lip kit ever, and [Kylie] admits that it’s not going to look great on most people.” If anyone can pull off this not-for-everyone shade, it’s the most beautiful people in the world. Libras, we’re looking at you for this pale nude. Libras are elegant and romantic and are known to admire their own beauty, as well as the world’s. This shade is opulent and knowing that not everyone can pull it off, might make a Libra want to try it even more. As aforementioned, sister, Kim Kardashian West is a Libra, and we can see her in this light pink beige shade!
9 Aquarius - "Say No More," Flashy Pink For This Unmissable Air Sign
We are loving this Barbie pink for our Aquarius girls! This air sign is known for recreating herself and for being bold and trying new things. We think this shade is perfect because you need to be a little eccentric to wear such a bright pink color for every day. Kylie’s website calls this “neon pink,” and Hello Giggles calls it, “the hottest, most electrifying ‘80’s Barbie makeup shade of pink you’ve ever seen,” going on to describe, “a hot pink liquid lipstick with a velvety finish.” This shade was also part of Kylie’s recent April launch and we’re sure we’ll see it on more beauty gurus and Instagrammers as warmer weather hits. This pink shade makes us wish for cotton candy, carnivals, and a late-night ride in Barbie’s pink jeep.
8 Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, And Pisces) - The Weather Collection Rains Down On Our Water Sign Girls
Kylie Jenner’s “The Weather Collection” is the inspiration for our water signs. We’re taking inspiration in the colors of the ocean as we look at our Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces girls, and “The Weather Collection” is raining down on these sizzling water signs. Kylie’s weather inspired collection launched earlier this year and seemed to cash in on her daughter’s namesake; Stormi Webster was born in early February and not even a month later did this set launch. Teen Vogue reported that Manny MUA, famous YouTuber and makeup artist said the palette didn’t take him by storm, but instead he thought it was a great concept, but was less than in real life. Manny’s frosty review left the internet cold, we’re just hoping that the PR department doesn’t get dark and overcast him with the next launch.
7 Cancer - Bold "Nightfall" For This Creative Standout Sign
For our Cancer girls, we’ve chosen a matte lipstick from “The Weather Collection” in the color “Nightfall.” This black shade makes us think of the depths of the ocean, which makes it perfect for the deep, emotional Cancer girl. Cancers are imaginative, creative, and they tend to have a lot of feelings; we think this dark shade is perfect for this sign. Refinery 29 reports that Khloe Kardashian is a Cancer, and we would love to see this dark shade, in contrast with her light complexion. According to W Magazine, Kylie said this about “The Weather Collection,” “Right after we chose Stormi’s name, her name really inspired me. I spent a lot of time on this collection and put a lot of detail into it.” We can tell; the color “Nightfall” is sure to strike with Cancer girls!
6 Scorpio - "Wicked" Purple For This Mysterious Powerful Girl
For our Scorpios, we chose Kylie Cosmetics “Wicked” Liquid Lip Kit. Kylie’s website calls this hue a “deepened violet,” and we love it for our most mysterious, secretive sign. We think this purple shade is perfect for water sings, as it looks like a color from the ocean’s depths. This purple color was part of Kylie’s fall collection in 2017. Us Magazine said this about the standout shade, “Wicked is a bright purple color which would be perfect for Halloween.” Us Magazine also reported that Kylie said,“I feel like I would wear this to a party.” We hope we’re invited to whatever Halloween party they’re talking about because we love this shade and think it would look so gorgeous on a powerful, confident Scorpio woman!
5 Pisces - "Ironic" Olive Green For This Dreamy Water Sign
For Pisces girls, we chose this unique olive-green shade from Kylie’s new spring lineup. We love this camouflage green and it reminds us of blue-green waters for this water sign. Olive was huge this fall, and we love that Kylie is making this part of her spring launch. Pisces are known to be a bit dreamy and so is this green color; Kylie’s site calls it a “dusty army green.” This color is called “Ironic” and received a lot of attention when Kylie first announced it. Seventeen summed up the drama saying “Commenters are dying over the random color and it’s basically taking over Twitter. Most people are comparing it to something out of Stormi’s diaper. Barf.” These odd colors are favorites of beauty gurus, we all remember when Jaclyn Hill named a shade in her eyeshadow palette, “Pukey.”
4 Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, And Capricorn) - Kourt X Kylie, The Unreleased Line For This Earthy Sign
For our Earth signs, we picked the most down to Earth Kardashian. Kourtney K is known for keeping it real and that’s why we’ve chosen her unreleased range, with sister Kylie, to represent Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn signs! Kylie and Kourtney both teased on Instagram this week that something is coming soon! The only thing that seems official so far is that there will be a beautiful deep peachy, almost coral pink lip color. That’s literally all we know, and we can’t wait to see more. Kourtney keeps her makeup a little simpler and more laid back than sisters Kylie, Kim, and Khloe and we can’t wait to see what will, hopefully, be a very wearable shade range for our Earth signs. Now we’re wondering if Kendall will do a collaboration too…
3 Taurus - Earthy "Apricot" For This Peaceful, Patient Girl
Taurus girls are calm, peaceful, and down to Earth, so we’ve picked this lovely “Apricot” shade to represent this natural beauty. For our Earth signs, we’re picking shade names that come from the Earth and Kylie has lots of shades inspired by fruit, of course, these colors are ripe and lush. According to Bustle, this shade started out as a limited edition shade, as part of the Valentine’s drop, and then became permanent, only, later on, which Kylie announced on Instagram. Bustle also calls this shade “sister” to shade “Dirty Peach,” which is an Instagram famous color; look no further than Khloe’s Instagram to know it’s one of her personal favorites! This pleasant shade is perfect for this peachy, peaceful Earth sign!
2 Virgo - "Grape Soda" For This Down To Earth Sign
For this one, we’re spilling a little bit of drama, and soda. Kylie’s shade “Grape Soda,” a cool-toned, gray-light-lilac caused some controversy. According to Teen Vogue, famous YouTuber, Jeffree Star leaked Kylie’s launch. Teen Vogue reported that Jeffree, “broke the news before Kylie even got the chance to, posting pics, shade names, AND swatches to his Twitter account. Kylie followed with her own reveal a couple of hours later, giving her followers the scoop.” Kylie didn’t seem to have any hard feelings about the accidental leak, she responded to Jeffree’s Tweet complimenting her new shades, so maybe it was just an honest mistake. Anyway, “Grape Soda” is a beautiful pastel purple and perfect for Virgo girls, it’s a modest take on going with a vivid lip, and a practical start to trying pastel colors.
1 Capricorn - All That Glitters Is "Sugar" Lip Kit For This Loyal Royal Girl
For our last Earth sign, we’ve chosen “Sugar,” a pink lip gloss to represent our Capricorn girls. Kylie’s site calls this color an “opalescent pink gloss” and we think this Earthbound gemstone is a good fit for such a loyal and sweet sign. “Sugar” was part of Kylie’s limited edition holiday collection and came in a set with other holiday favorites including, “Butter,” “Savage,” “Boy Bye,” and “Angel.” This holiday range also included the “Naughty” and “Nice” palettes, which were a sweet Christmas touch. We love this angelic picture of Kylie and this glittery look is perfect for Capricorns. Capricorns are all about actions being greater than words, and this color shows that all that glitters is not gold, but “Sugar” coated instead.
