After some kasual legal drama to the tune of a $180 million lawsuit, Kardashian Beauty is back with a new "Fierce" collection. In addition to slew of face-beat-ready offerings for lips, eyes, face, it boasts brand new packaging (black and gold, as opposed to white and rose gold) and its own inspirational hashtags: #BeFierce, #LiveFierce, and #NoApologies. Maaajor I-ain't-sorry vibes.

Ranging from $8.99-$16.99, the price is definitely right, but how does everything hold up? Here, find a no-holds-barred look at the Kardashian sister's latest.

The most hyped of the new launches for obvious reasons, the Kountour Kases are available in two different sets of shade options, each one having a contour, conceal, and highlight cream. Now I'm not exactly a master—even thought I did cut my teeth with the very man who taught Kim K to contour (Sorry, Joe!)—but I was really feeling the super-compact, toss-it-in-your -bag palette at first. It smoothed on and blended nicely with my wet beautyblender. This said, after a few hours of wear my skin looked parched. But for a 3-in-1 at $15.99, it wasn't terrible.

The Lip Slayer Lipsticks

I will not pull punches—the biggest draw of these lipsticks are their names. I was excited about a few of the shimmery opaque shades, particularly the eye-popping coral "Damn Gina" and pink-y nude "Goals." The problem was that the formula was too thick, it tasted like what you imagine old-fashioned lipstick tastes like, and didn't have great staying power.

The No Apologies Face Kit

The three combination kits—Werk It, Slay It, and Own It— each have a highlighter, blush, and eight different eyeshadows, which are split into two, four-square quads. One is for "Daytime" and the other is for "Playtime." As far as choosing one it all comes down to what you want: the bronzy browns (Werk), earthy browns (Slay), or , smoky-ready statement hues (Own). If (and only if) you know what you're doing, these are the best bang for your buck.

The No Apologies Foundation

Most Popular

Of all the new offerings, I was definitely most skeptical about the foundation, but it wasn't too shabby with the help of a wet beautyblender. For $12.99, it made good on its promise of long-wearing, buildable coverage with a satin-y finish. However, it was a little chalky, which might explain why the light-refracting "Chandalier Complex" technology wasn't exactly evident.

The No Apologies Koncealer

The concealer was another pleasant surprise, though I'm a little peeved at the lack of variety in shades. While it doesn't hold a candle to the $30 formula I swear by daily, it delivered solid coverage for a variety of imperfections from redness to dark marks and melted into the skin nicely. I even tried "baking" my dark circles and my lack of sleep was at least 50% less evident. Not bad, not bad at all.
