Stop what you're doing! Kylie Jenner has just lifted the lid on her most striking Lip Kit shade yet and she has explained that there's a interesting reason behind the beautifully bold new hue.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is churning out Lip Kit swatches faster than we can say the word 'smackers' and her latest has sent fans and beauty-obsessives alike into a total tizzy.

After plying us with understated nudes (Candy and Dolce K are our ultimate faves, just saying) the make-up maestro unveiled Dead of Knight - an in-your-face jet black, and she revealed that the shade has a special place in her heart.

After taking to Snapchat (where else, eh?) to give us the lowdown on the lippie and its matching liner by testing it on her arm, KJ flooded Instagram with a series of special snaps from a secret photo-shoot alongside some stunning selfies including this hella-cute throwback.

Kylie captioned the picture, "I did it for her. Back when I only dreamed of having my own lip line. 16 yr old me would be so proud. @kyliecosmetics this new kit is so important to me #deadofknight."

The reality star turned beauty mogul then went on to explain that while it was her fans who convinced her to include an onyx hue in the sell-out Lip Kit collection, it had always been on her mind.

In fact, Kylez revealed that she and make-up artist Joyce Bonelli used to use liquid eyeliner - yup, eyeliner - on her pillowy pout because they both found it difficult to locate lippies in similar colours.

Alongside a collage of old selfies Kylie wrote, "Black Lips Forever. I used black eyeliner when it wasn't as easy to find matte black lipstick. #deadofknight." She continued, "This shade is for you guys!"

Since launching her Lip Kit collection in November 2015, KJ has broken Google twice and sold out more times than we can count.

A whole hoard of our favourite celebs have also jumped on the Lip Kit bandwagon with Geordie Shore's Charlotte Crosby and Jen Atkin both having landed their hands on the beauty buys recently.
