I'm a huge lipstick lover. I don't wear it often because I suck at applying it properly, but I still somehow managed to amass a ridiculously large collection of lippies – lipsticks, lip glosses, lip stains, lip balms. Like many other makeup enthusiasts, I've kind of fallen in love with Kylie Jenner's lip kits. Say what you will about Kylie herself, but even if you're not a fan, you've got to admit that her brand's come out with some gorgeous colors, styles, and formulas – and hey, now she's even taking care of that messy, pesky brush problem! The kits aren't outrageously expensive, but it can be hard to get your hands on the colors you want – they sell out fast! So, if you need an alternative until you finally get one of the coveted colors, I've got a bunch for you!
1 Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in TBT
Tarte's got several gorgeous Kylie-esque colors, but TBT is one of the most sought after. It's a rich, dramatic shade that you can also wear with your daytime look.
2 Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips in Midi
Mad for matte lipsticks? Colourpop's one of the biggest Kylie competitors and for good reason. Midi is a sweet, soft, peachy shade that's perfect for spring.
3 MAC Lipstick in Faux
Of course you can count on MAC to save the day! I love the rich red tones of Faux – how about you?
4 NYX Lip Lingerie in Embellishment
Here's a fab, affordable pick for anyone looking for a subtle shade. I won't call it nude because, well, it's not nude for all skin tones, but that doesn't make it any less pretty.
5 Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Redrum
The name of this shade says it all – redrum, redrum, redrum! Bee tee double-you, did anyone else see how Jeffree recently went in on Kylie for those janked up lip brushes?
6 Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Party Pink
This pretty shade of pink will definitely put you in the mood to party!
7 NYX Soft Matte Lipstick in Prague
Here's another marvelous matte, but this shade is all about the drama. The purple tones make it perfect for a vampy look.
8 Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks in Celebrity Skin
Love the nod to Hole and Courtney Love here! You could certainly put together a grunge-inspired rocker girl look with this lippie.
9 Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips in Chi
Prefer warm, toasty shades? Chi is here for you!
10 Lime Crime Velvetine in Salem
Ah, a lippie after my own heart. Love the packaging, love the color, definitely love the name!
11 Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bellissima
This is soft and sweet with just a little brightness to make it pop – perfect!
12 L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour in Terracotta
You don't have to go with a luxury brand or spend a lot of money if you want to find a Kylie alternative. L'Oreal has some fab lipsticks and this is a fierce color.
13 MAC Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo
Oooh, this red! This red is everything, this red is life!
14 Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drench Lip Splash Lipstick in Wet Suit
How gorgeous is this? I think I need to pause a minute and go order this, actually … Brb!
15 Hoola Ultra Plush Shimmering Golden Nude Lip Gloss
Want something with just a glimmer of glam? Protip: this is also lovely when you lightly layer it over a lipstick in a different shade.
16 Stila Lip Glaze in Shortcake
I love applying this lippie – even I can't mess it up!
17 Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick in Fraise BonBon
I live for this shade. That is so dark and dramatic and gorgeous!
Even if these don't live up to Kylie's lip kits, they're all gorgeous. Think you might stock up on a few of them?
