Kylie Jenner has made her name known in the makeup community for her lip kits and ultra pigmented products, and one shade in particular called 'Love Bite' features a unique source of inspiration pulled from neck hickeys. The color recreates the bruised bite using shades that recreate the look of a hickey one might receive on their neck from a lover.

The 'Love Bite' shade is a literal recreation of a bruised hickey, sourcing deep shades of purple and mauve to recreate the hyper pigmentation that occurs on the skin when blood vessels are popped. The kit includes both a matte gloss and liner to achieve the pigmented effect.

One consumer noted the true resemblance in a photo uploaded to Twitter that shows the 'Love Bite' lip gloss tube next to a neck hickey.
