I’ve been wanting to try the Kailijumei lipstick since I first saw it go viral but these have been so difficult to buy because of popularity and exorbitant shipping fees. I’m happy to have been generously sent this (along with some other samples) to review by Australian seller Sweet Pinyupa Shop. She is very responsive to messages, so sweet and easy to converse with.
This lipstick comes from a Chinese brand that, honestly, kind of blew up out of the blue. This brand has no other products to their name, does not seem to have a professional website (their official store is a tictail page) and has no responded to any of my legitimate messages even though they urge people to contact them through instagram. They also warn a lot about possible fakes on the market, even though their own images seem to be low resolution and possibly just taken from the supplier’s site. I know that overall, this seems like I am bashing Kailijumei but I guess I am simply unimpressed by their business attitude and customer service.
However, that being said, I love this lipstick. It’s a great product, very pretty and I was really happy to find an Australian seller who is also selling the Kailijumei lipsticks. She had assured me that her stock is bought from the same suppler for Kailijumei (which, for those who are familiar with the Chinese wholesaler/factory industry) makes a lot of sense.
When it comes to customer services and reliability, I much preferred talking to Fern from Sweet Pinyupa over the actual company.
Now, with that done, onto the product!
