I don’t know about you, but whenever the year closes, I love to reflect on some of the highlights. My favorite beauty moments tend to pop into my head, especially if I take a chance and buy a new product I saw on TikTok, and it lived up to the hype.
Kylie Jenner apparently shares the same sentiment, as she recently posted a video on her YouTube channel about her favorite moments from 2022. The topics ranged from naming her favorite sister of the year (spoiler alert: it’s Khloé Kardashian), her favorite outfit, and most importantly, the Kylie Cosmetics products she adored.
So, what’s holding the number one spot in the billionaire’s mind and on her beauty counter? Jenner chose Gloss Drip ($16) as her favorite product of the year; she noted that she’s particularly obsessed with the juicy lip gloss and how it feels on her lips.
If you haven’t tried the Gloss Drip, it’s a gloss that imparts a juicy, mirror-shine finish that leaves lips looking luscious. It’s said to be comfortable and promises a wet look without stickiness — a feeling we all try to avoid.
As a bonus, the beauty founder also highlighted her brand’s Lip Oil ($23) as her favorite skincare product. She proclaimed it to be her beauty “best friend.”
The non-sticky formula is said to hydrate, comfort, and leave lips smooth and naturally plump. The luxurious texture combines a lip gloss-like sheen with the moisture-sealing properties of a balm. The result of the application is an irresistible subtle sheen.
Honestly, I’m not surprised that all of her favorite Kylie Cosmetics products are lip products. The brand rose to significant popularity in 2015 with her iconic “lip kits” that sold out in minutes on more than one occasion.
The launch of Kylie Cosmetics’ limited-edition Lip Plumping Gloss ($17) with Ulta was one of her favorite events of the year, and the brands celebrated with a bash that attracted celebrities like Lori Harvey, Charli, Dixie D’Amelio, and the KarJenner family.
When celebrities share their beauty must-haves, I eat it up. It provides me with the chance to shop for products that I might not have otherwise discovered. In this instance, the thought of trying the brand’s lip-plumping gloss enticed me (I’m accepting gifts. Hint, hint).
Regarding my outlook on beauty for 2023, I did get my hands on the Kylie Cosmetics’ High Gloss ($17), which offers multi-dimensional shine and color, and I loved it. Thanks to the formula, my lips had a glazy finish and a hint of shimmer without the stickiness of some other glosses. Like Jenner, I have a long wishlist of lip products for the new year. After all, the proper gloss is an essential part of every beauty regimen. No chapped lips here!
