Exactly How Kylie Jenner Gets Those Perfect Lip Kit Swatches

Kylie Jenner may be a household name, but the beauty set will always know her best for two things: her Lip Kits and the swatches she creates with them. Say what you will about the 19-year-old, there's no denying that she has product sampling down to a science.
Swatching beauty products is its own form of art — and an Instagram and Snapchat staple. Scroll through an beauty lover's feed and you'll quickly find yourself immersed in a sea of arms — forearms to be exact — of swatches. And every single time Jenner is about to drop a new product from her cosmetics line, you can bet there will be an entire Snapchat story of product sampling to intro the new hues.

I care a lot about what my products look like when people first see them.”
Could this mean the new Life of Kylie will feature this mysterious housekeeper/swatch queen? Here's to hoping...
