The other day, while running errands, I came across a new makeup brand at Walmart. I did a bit of research and discovered that Kokie Professional is a German brand. It’s not available online on Walmart’s website, but you can preview the products available for purchase in store, here. Items range in price from $5 (nail polish) to $16 (contour palette) online, but prices may vary by store. I thought the black and white striped packaging was super cute! So obviously, I had to grab a few items to try. 😉 The only downside about the packaging that I noticed was that the stripes obstruct your view of the shades within the eyeshadow palettes. I opted not to purchase any of those (for now 😜).
I purchased a light blue nail polish in a shade called “Wondrous” ($4.98), a matte lipstick in a shade called “Paris” ($5.98); a matte liquid lipstick in a shade called “Sublime” ($5.98); and a lip gloss in a shade called “Standout” ($5.98). 🙂
If you’d like to purchase Kokie products online, most of the products mentioned in this post are available on their website (the Lip Veneer does not appear to be available online).
I haven’t used the nail polish yet but wanted to give a close-up shot of the shade I purchased. It’s a pretty, periwinkle blue; and, at first glance, it seems pretty opaque. I anticipate only needing 2 coats for this one. 😍
Swatches of the lippies are shown below in natural and LED lighting.
I was super impressed with the lippies! 😲💃 The quality of all 3 formulas was really impressive, especially for such reasonable prices.
Lip swatches are below. Pardon my bathrobe! LOL!
The Lip Veneer lip gloss was my favorite of the 3 lip products I purchased. The formula is thick and very pigmented. The texture is creamy and smooth. It reminded me a lot of NYX Butter Gloss, which I love. 😀
I also really loved the Liquid Lipstick, which is supposed to be a matte formula. I’d compare it to Colourpop Ultra Satin or Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipsticks. It had more of a satin finish than a true matte formula. Infamous is super pigmented and creamy. Unlike other liquid lipsticks that I’ve tried, I didn’t find it drying at all. 🙂
The Matte Lipstick had a buildable formula that felt really unique. It was somewhat waxy upon application, but upon warming on the lip, it took on a really velvety, smooth texture. The pigmentation on this one was great too. Having just purchased a couple of the new Colourpop Blotted Lip lippies, I’d say that the two formulas are similar. (Stay tuned for my next Colourpop review! 😉 )
Again, I am super impressed with these drugstore products. If you see them in your local store, I’d definitely recommend trying a few. I’ll be grabbing a few more of these the next time I’m at Walmart! 😀 ❤
