Forget about Black Friday madness. The most hardcore fashionistas broke the Internet on Cyber Monday trying to buy Kylie Jenner’s lip kit. Literally, her site, lipkitbykylie.com, went down for a few minutes yesterday morning. And by the time it was back up, the set of three lipsticks were all sold out. By mid-afternoon, there were bidding wars on eBay for all three of the brown shades — Dolce K, Candy K, and True Brown. Right now, there is a listing on eBay for the Dolce K at $10,000. I'm as obsessed with the nude color as the next guy, but let’s cross our fingers that that turns out to be a hoax. What's definitely real? The sale of the kits for around $300 on eBay, when the lipsticks retail directly from Kylie at $29.
The shades were completely hand picked by Kylie herself according to her site, and she’s been asking buyers to share their “Kylie lip” on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #LipKitByKylie. But do not fret, there may still be a chance to get your hands on some (without shelling out your grocery budget for the month) very soon. Kylie seemed just as broken up about the sell-out as her fans. She was online all morning tweeting through the site crash and the buying frenzy. Later, she assured the beauty world that there will be a time to get yours:
But Guess Who Did Get One?
Meanwhile, It's Getting Ugly On Twitter
That seems sort of unfair right? But before you sneakily whip out the credit card for a late night bid on brown lipstick, there are other ways to get the Kylie Lip. Or just listen to the girl herself and repeat after me: this is not exclusive, and there will be more where these came from. Let's just hope Santa knows how to shop online.
