Kylie Cosmetics: Koko Kollection Swatches

I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to be able to own & provide Koko Kollection swatches, but here I am…

As soon as I saw the pack (especially that hot pink colour!) I knew I needed it in my life. My friend from work and I decided to go in together so we would get the free shipping over $60 (us being lowly Australians) aaand, as I had never had a problem buying the lipkits I wanted before, we were pretty confident we would be rocking four new lip colours within a week or two.

As it turns out, the restock was during work hours for us. We sat eagerly at my computer, hoping the phone wouldn’t ring as soon as the hour struck (I would have had to answer it as I was the receptionist) or the computers wouldn’t suddenly get a virus and turn off (as our work PC’s have been known to do). We sat for ten minutes, eagerly refreshing the page – I know it happens exactly on the hour, but somehow this made us feel better. Suddenly, the store was live. Like lightning, we added 2 Koko Kollections to the Kart (hah) and raced to enter in our details. Shipping address, correct. Payment details, correct. Billing address… doesn’t match? In my haste I had left my shipping address as my billing address, which was completely wrong. Fighting back panic and frustration, I typed in all the details again, including the right billing address this time. The products were still in the cart, we would make it, all was well… except this time, I had apparently given the wrong CVV number for my credit card. I hadn’t, and I will insist that I hadn’t until the day I die, but that’s what the screen told us. I went back, and…

They were sold out.

Disappointment rushed over us like a kid to an ice-cream van. “No,” we mourned softly. “No.
“At least I didn’t end up wasting money,” I said, in an failed effort to cheer us up. It was no use. The day was full of misery…

…Until Kylie Cosmetics announced a restock a few days later!

This time, I was alone at work as my friend had the day off (lucky b-) and the pressure was on like donkey kong. The sale was on at 9am Aussie time, and of course somebody came to our reception area at exactly thirty seconds into 8:59. He politely asked me if I could open the boom gate for him, to which I glared at him and silently cursed his existence as he cheerfully headed back to his truck. I raced back to my computer, and managed to purchase the Koko Kollection! Hurrah! Oh, and I eventually remembered to open the gate for that guy. Two wins.

You’ll have to excuse my freckly arm, I didn’t notice it until I looked back at these photos. Thanks universe for allowing me to freckle but not tan. OKURRR was my favourite from the second I saw this pack, but I am so in love with the gloss DAMN GINA as well!

Which shade is your favourite?
