A pretty pink shade
Koko K is a pale pink matte lipstick. It is actually one of the first shades that Kylie Jenner released when the Kylie Lip Kits first came about. I always skip this particular shade when I browse. I've always thought that it was too light for me and I can never pull it off. But somehow I ended up getting it.

So Koko K is a pale pink. That much is obvious. Among the original shades, it is the lightest. Surprisingly, I was able to pull it off. It is a cool-toned pink which suits my skin tone because I have cool undertones. Not really a summer color, it's still nice to wear it once in a while to take a break from the bold and vibrant colors of summer and spring. It has a subtlety to it that makes it a staple for the office.
Application of both the lip liner and matte liquid lipstick went on without a hitch. Both applied smoothly and streak-free. I was worried that it would enhance my lip lines but it didn't. It is very pigmented so I was able to achieve the coverage I wanted with just a few strokes. It applied opaque but dried to a beautiful lightweight matte finish.
The thing I like about the Kylie lip kits is their longevity. It can last practically the entire day. And Koko K was no exception. It lasted me the entire morning and made it through my lunch and snack with little noticeable wear. I had to retouch it a bit but after that, my lipstick looked good as new. It's also smudge-proof and transfers very minimally to glasses and utensils.
I'm still on the fence with Kylie Cosmetics. For one thing it's too darn expensive. And you never know what quality of the product you will get. I guess I'm lucky because I ended up with a good one. But I would still recommend looking for good dupes of the Kylie products. ColourPop's Clueless Ultra Matte, for example. It's a perfect dupe for Koko K. But that's just my opinion. 😁
