Kylie Jenner's Beauty Must Haves + Dupes

My favorite Ky from the reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians has changed in a spam of 5 years. Everything has gotten bigger with the new Kylie Jenner. I didn't keep up with the Kardashians these past few years for sole reason of being busy. I had a lot of time on my hands when I was single and a marathon wasn't impossible with my cousins, but know they've been so busy with their work and I'm stuck with season 7. Couldn't keep up with them and I was just always shocked and stunned seeing on my newsfeed that Khloe and Lamar got divorced, Kim and Kanye ended up together, Koutney and Scott split up, Kendall's now a Victoria's Secret Angel, Kris and Bruce got divorced as well and now Bruce became Caitlyn Jenner. The last blog post spilling their beauty must haves plus dupes was way back 2012 I think, and you can check it out here. I can't even believe that this old blog post has 44,016 views! Time to start another informative blog post this time about Kylie Jenner!

Kylie has been really successful in terms of beauty and vanity. I knew then that she had it in her. Wearing makeup at the age of 11 doesn't actually mean she's in a hurry to grow up, it simply means she has passion for beauty. I saw myself in her at that age, coz at the age of 11 I was already wearing makeup too.

Her makeup game changed after she had lip fillers which has been so controversial, and which is so obvious. Aside for her controversial plump lips, her choice of lipstick made headlines for beauty addicts on social media. She brought back matte mauve and matte brown lips of the 90's, and when she said she uses Mac Lip Pencil in Spice on her lips, it was completely sold out on any Mac stores world wide. One intelligent move she did is when she released her very own lip kits. I'm dying to have Posie K, but unfortunately it's always sold out and even impossible to find elsewhere. Oh well, the Kardashians used to be the most influential in terms of makeup and beauty, now Kylie's doing better than any of those sisters.

Just like her older sistem Kim, Kylie is generous when it comes to spilling her secrets. I did a little research through stalking on her Instagram, blog, vlog and interview. I've found out that most of her makeups weren't really affordable for us, mere mortals. With our bad economy, everyday finances, monthly dues and tight budget, I tried to find and search for drugstore dupes.

Yes they're hella expensive, not to mention she has other brands like La Mer, Artisan, Buxom, more Chanel cosmetics for sure and Mac. For broke peeps like me, here's a cheaper deal that you can find in any drugstores or online shops. As a Filipino beauty junkie, some of her beauty must haves weren't really available at most stores in my country, unless it's for pre-order in an online shop (cough! Sephora...) so I tried to look for possible online stores to purchase them. I'm a self confessed dupe hoarder, and I always search for cheaper alternatives that delivers the same result like their expensive counterpart.

Let's start with liquid foundations. Kylie custom blends her foundation by mixing two different shades and formulation to enhance her spray tan and with the goal of letting her real skin shine through. I've heard so much about Revlon Photoready Liquid foundation and most users said that it's a dead ringer for Makeup Forever HD foundation. I've only tried the cream version of it and it's really good! It has light reflective pigments and my pictures really turned out great, though it couldn't actually cover my freckles and blemishes.

If you want another HD foundation NYX has their own HD Studio Photogenic Foundation for a cheaper price. More foundies to try: Cover Girl Outblast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation and Max Factor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation. Cover Girl and Max Factor were sister companies launching same makeup line with almost the same formulation hence there's both 3 in 1 Outblast and Face Finity. You can easily purchase them on any drugstore or any beauty section here in the Philippines. Most of their price ranges from 1,000-1,200 pesos.

Kylie applies her liquid foundation with her favorite Tarte Cosmetics Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation brush, or sometimes her Beauty Blender. There's a lot of tear drop sponge nowadays that gives good results like the original Beauty Blender. One good example is City Color Cosmetics. For the Tarte brush dupe, there's this Mushroom Kabuki Foundation brush I've been eyeing on that's available at and Miss Bella Ph. Both mushroom brush and tear drop sponge ranges from 250-600 pesos.

For neat brows on fleek, Kylie uses the cult's fave Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz in Soft Brown. There are cheaper alternatives out there, and the latest talk of the town is NYX Micro Brow Pencil that looks very much similar to Brow Wiz of Anastasia and it's only 320 Pesos. L'oreal has brow stylist definer, and you can also try Easy Brow Pencil by Milani and Holika Holika Wonder Drawing Skinny Eyebrow. Price range 300-600 pesos.
You can see that Kylie's face has become slimmer and sculpted thanks to contouring palettes and contouring creams. It's also the trend these days like strobing and with the right brush, right technique and right palette you'll surely achievewell-chiseled cheeks, slimmer nose and slimmer face.

Products to try: City Color Contouring Palette comes with a dual ended brush (it's my favorite) NYX has released their Highlight and Contour Pro Palette while ELF has two contouring palettes, one for fair skinned and one for dark skinned gals. Morphe Brushes has their 9 Contour powder and it looks awesome, me want that! Price Range: 500 - 1,300 pesos 
For rosy and flushed cheeks, Kylie swears by the cult's fave Nars Orgasm blush. There's no need to break your wallet, there's a lot of dupe out there! Try NYX Pinched, Milani Dolce Pink, Milani Luminoso, Elf Twinkle Pink Blush, Sephora Cream Blush in Coral Flush, Mary Kay Mineral Blush in Shy (my fave and the closest to Nars Orgasm!) and Elf Blush and Bronzer duo in Sta. Lucia. The blush is a Nars Orgasm dupe, while the bronzer is Nars Laguna dupe. Price Range: 250 - 450 pesos You can get NYX & Elf at any department stores here in the Philippines, while Milani, Sephora and Mary Kay were from online shops. Buy Mary Kay Mineral Blush in Shy here.
There are so many products for Strobing/Highlighting and while Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlighters were Kylie's fave, I'm dying to get Becca by Jaclyn Hill Shimmer Pressed Powder in Champagne Pop. Unfortunately, the ever broke me can only afford Elf Baked Highlighters and Colour pop Highlighters. Price Range: 250 - 500 pesos.

For longer and fuller lashes for a cheaper price, try Red Cherry False Eyelashes. They're soft and 100% Human Hair, even Kim Kardashian uses it. You can try #WSP or #43. They're available at DTC Makeup for only 150-160 pesos!

For the Lancome Hypnose Mascara Dupe, I've heard Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express Mascara gives fuller and falsies like effect that's pretty close to Lancome's. Available at any Maybelline counters for only 400 pesos.

Kylie has been loyal to their family's makeup line Kardashian Beauty, but since it's hard to find a seller here in our country, try the best selling matte bronzer by NYX Cosmetics. I heard that it's really worth a try. Price: 350-400 pesos, NYX beauty counters. More to try: City Color Cosmetics Beach Beauty Bronzer and Essence Hello Autumn Multi Color Powder. Price Range: 370- 450 pesos.

To cover up blemishes and under eye circles, try Revlon Colorstay Concealer. It's very creamy and pigmented and can easily lighten those unsighty eyebags under your eyes. Price: 800. Revlon Counters.

Kylie likes using yellow powders to even out her complexion and correct any discolorations on her face. She uses Chanel or La Mer powders. Try Elf Yellow HD Powder. I heard that it's the dupe for the infamous Ben Nye Banana Luxury Powder. Price: 450-500 pesos


Lastly, aside from being born as the half sister of Kim Kardashian, grew up in front of the cameraa and starred in a reality show, her another claim to fame (thankfully) is not through a sex tape, but through her lips. Once again her controversial lips that grew bigger and bigger have finally launched its own lip kit that's sold world wide and very much in demand.She's totally addicted with Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick, then this year she launched her very own Kylie Jenner Lip Kit. It has a lip liner and long lasting liquid lipsticks in which the shades were inspired by her favorite hues. Mauve, Dusty Rose, Brown, Beige browns and Nude,
To achieve the same lip color like Kylie's without costing an arm or a leg, or suffering from disappointments and frustration from her lip kits for being sold out, Try Maybelline's Vivid Matte Liquid, Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams and Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lips. Another lippies to look forward to this Spring 2016: NYX Lingerie. Price Range: 390 pesos - 600 pesos. 

Lastly, who wouldn't drool over her glam room? She's only 18 but look at her lair! Me want it so bad. Sometimes, life is really unfair.

Well, that's it! Any recommendations or dupes that you know? Please share it with me if you do, coz for sure it'll be really helpful for us beauty junkies and makeup addicts! 

I hope y'all liked my post and my next goal is to do my take on Kylie Jenner's makeup look.

Bye ladies gotta hit the sack now! Thanks!!
