Kylie Jenner’s makeup truck has fans lined up around the block

Kylie Jenner At The Paper And Pretty Little Thing Party In Palm Springs.
It seems that, for the second year in a row, people who asked Santa for Kylie cosmetics might find their stockings a bit lighter than anticipated. Last year, the makeup maven’s website and pop-up shop sold out of everything quicker than a Rudolph-led sleigh and, this year, Kylie’s taking her stuff to the streets in a customized truck.

The 20-year-old mom-to-be, who recently received WWD’s Beauty Newsmaker Award, introduced Los Angeles beauty addicts to the Kylie Truck, which made its debut at LA shopping landmark The Grove on Friday afternoon. Over 100 fans were treated to cupcakes and lip kit swatches as they waited for their opportunity to get their hands on this year’s Kylie Cosmetics holiday collection, as well as her signature lip kits, lipsticks, lip liners, kylighters (ugh, really with that name?), and eyeshadow palettes. Those not into makeup could shop accessories, including panties, socks, and hats. Kylie, who was not making an appearance with the truck, shared a photo of the truck on Instagram the day before its launch, adding the caption, “welcome the @kylietruck to the @kyliecosmetics family! First stop .. @TheGroveLA TOMORROW.”

On Sunday, the truck showed up at Saks in Beverly Hills. Shoppers at the truck were limited to purchasing a mere ten of each item, so if you really want some Kylie cosmetics, you might want to check eBay.

You have to have Beverly Hills-worthy income to purchase Kylie’s new cosmetics brushes. The 16-piece set is part of Kylie’s new Silver Series collection, which also includes lipsticks and concealers. The brushes, which will be available on Wednesday, can be yours for $360. No surprise, fans were a bit miffed when seeing the price tag, and let their displeasure be known on Twitter.

Kylie responded to the criticism on Saturday, tweeting, “I have developed for you guys the most amazing luxury brushes ever. I am very excited! Real brushes don’t compare to synthetic brushes. Different performance/quality/everything. I am 100% down to do an entire synthetic line in the future which will ultimately be cheaper.” It didn’t help.

Kylie then responded with screenshots of other high-end cosmetic brushes and stated, “I always fight for the lowest price on all my products. Here are some other real brush lines for reference.”

Again, this didn’t really help, and fans let Kylie know.

I have never, and I never will, pay $360 for brushes, and, as we’ve discussed on this site before, Kylie’s stuff is just plain overpriced. I guess you’ve got to give her marketing people kudos, because people are still lining up to spend their money on it. I’m glad some of her fans are being vocal, although I’m sure it won’t budge that price point. I’ll stick with my NYX, at least I know I can get a year’s worth of their cosmetics for the price of a lip kit or two.

    The brush sets are aspirational window dressing. That price gives a high-end, professional make-up artiste gloss to a line of otherwise ordinary product. I don’t believe Kylie Co. thought they’d sell many brush sets. They know their customers.

    • Char says:

      People buy if they want to, she know she can overcharge cause there will be people willing to pay.

      • Sabrine says:

        No reason to complain. If people want to buy her products they will. No one’s arm is being twisted to purchase them after all. If you can’t afford them, move on.

  2. Lolo86lf says:

    My co-worker just told me that Kylie’s make-up line is really good quality, but still she is charging way too much.

    • dodgy says:

      Kyle’s makeup line is made by colorpop. You can buy stuff from colorpop and get the same quality for a fraction of the price.

      • gabbie says:

        that’s not entirely true. kylie’s line started out being made in the same place colorpop is made, so when she started they used some of the same formulas. she’s edited hers since then.

    • Veronica says:

      My coworker used the lip products and said they were pretty good. I’ve heard mixed things about the eyeshadow palettes. I think the pricing is find for a mid-end brand, but the quality and production value has to be there. It’s one thing to be sold out of limited edition palettes. It’s another issue altogether if you can’t keep up with the demands of the base product line.

    • says:

      I have a eyeshadow palette and a lipstick and they’re not bad products at all. Her shimmer shadows are really nice. That being said, there are much more interesting products out there. And although I don’t think $360 for 16 brushes is that much (but I do spend insane amounts of money on makeup), I’d never spend that much money on brushes I don’t get to hold in my hands before.

      • jwoolman says:

        I have never used makeup myself, but would most of her fans even know what to do with such a set of brushes? It sounds like something for someone with advanced makeup skills and needs, or someone really interested in becoming an expert and needing a tool kit. I would assume single brushes and very small sets would work best for most of her young fans. The price is mind-boggling to me but not if the buyer really knows how to use them all.

    • HIDI says:

      she probably overcharges because of the FAMOUS BRAND NAME ,whats more its a new make-up line on the market

  3. RBC says:

    The price of the makeup brushes is insane, but one can be sure there are people who will shell out the money.
    Slightly off topic, but have Kylie (and Khloe too) confirmed their pregnancies? For a family that loves to be in the public eye, both women have been extremely low key. Seems very strange

    • Jayna says:

      I noticed that. One Momager reason. It’s to create mystery for the new season of the Kartrashian show.. That’s how they usually roll. Like Kim’s Paris attack. She stayed low-key, traumatized, but managed to play it out on the filming of the Kartrashians. I remember a headline, Kim breaks her silence on Paris Attack, with a clip from their upcoming Kardashians show.

      • SoulSPA says:

        I slightly agree just because they couldn’t show stuff about the heist because she was a victim of a crime. In a foreign country. They were bound to keep silence because of the investigations. Otherwise everything is fair game for them. Shameless! I used to watch them ages ago. I don’t find them even remotely entertaining. I will still comment on them. Just here.

    • The dormouse says:

      This is a gross thought, but can’t shake it with these people: It’s a girl-baby buying binge. Dream is the only offspring with real star quality, and they want a new generation of dress-up dolls they can control.

  4. Loopy says:

    I keep seeing Lb on Kylies instagram posts anyone knows why her fans are commenting that.

    • laulau says:

      It means “like back” and it is kind of rude. People try to advertise their own pages by getting celebrities to ‘like’ their pages/pics. It speaks to the weird desperation to be approved of on the internet.

    • tegteg says:

      It means “like back.” They want her to like their posts.

    • Ayykittykayy says:

      LB is actually worse than that.. it means ‘like back,’ but it isn’t intended for the celebrity. When you post LB on kylie’s Wall, you will get bombarded with likes on your latest post. You are then expected to like the last post of every account that responded to your call for LB. you will see ‘lb top 3’ ‘lb most recent.’ I did some investigating bc I was very curious. Lol

    • bikki says:

      I do marketing for a living, and the lb phenomena strikes me as paid comments to inflate the comments per post pictures. Otherwise their pages wouldn’t have much clout.

      Compare Kourtney’s insta (which has always been more low-key) with Kylie’s – Kourtney’s does not have the LB thing. I am convinced they use it for the profiles they feel should be hyper-active (this observation also applies to the abundance of LBs on KKW & Kendall the “supermodel”). If lb was a real thing, you’d see it across all celebrity profiles like the Hadid sisters & Bieber.

      Also I’ve tapped on a few of the users leaving her these comments (whenever her pics pop up on my explore feed), and they are either dummy accounts and/or they don’t even follow her! There are apps where you can get likes and comments on your own pictures by blinding liking the pics of others and authorizing the app to leave comments on your behalf, thereby boosting numbers all around.

  5. Sixer says:

    There are days when I am glad that I do not own a single make up brush, even those that cost less than $350. This is one of them.

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      Me too. Thumbs up for not ruining my skin with chemical stuff and looking 10 years younger than I am.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        That’s genetic and has nothing to do with whether or not you wear makeup.

      • AMA1977 says:

        I’m 40 and could easily pass for 30 with the right clothing (I dress like a mom, lol). My skin is one of my best attributes; it’s unblemished, dewy, and fresh looking, and I wear makeup at least 5 days a week. I take good care of my skin, wear sunscreen, don’t tan, and use products that work well for me. Everything is a chemical. Water is a chemical. Makeup is not inherently bad for your skin.

    • Swak says:

      Sixer, me also. Not sure when the last time wore any type of make up much less bought any.

      • Sixer says:

        I own a mascara, a lipstick and a foundation. I use them about once or twice a year when I go touting for business in person and it’s never without moaning like hell that I feel obliged to. Otherwise, I go about as my genes made me. Life is so much easier – and cheaper, clearly! – I’m convinced of that.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Sixer, are you my long-lost twin? My makeup kit (hahaha!) consists of exactly the same things. The last time I wore makeup was in August 2015. My daughter received a very prestigious industry award, at a beautiful dinner in a very posh place in Sydney. I, too, moaned about having to wear makeup and —eek!—- a long frock! When it was all over, we walked back to the car park, and let me tell you, I was ever so grateful for the makeup remover wipes in my bag, because my face was completely clean by the time we reached the car. Even so, I still gave it the soap-and-water when I got home.

      • nicegirl says:

        I, too, only wear make-up for special events, or when I am working. I am good enough the way I am not.

      • Sixer says:

        AnnaKist – ha! You get that mask-that-might-crack-any-moment feeling too? That’s what make-up feels like to me.

      • swak says:

        I used to own mascara and blush. I taught 30 years and for about the first 10 – 15 I used the mascara and blush. After that – nada. I sweat way to much to wear any type of foundation and was told not to wear waterproof mascara because of wearing contacts. Think last time I wore make up was to my middle daughters wedding 11 years ago. I don’t go out much. Divorced after 25 years of marriage and have no desire to find a “soul” mate. My 10 grandkiddos keep me plenty busy.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Sixer: YES!! I loathe that feeling! I also tend to rub my eyes a bit too much, so end up with smears, as if someone has punched me, or wth dried up flecks of mascara all over my cheeks, like I have a face full of blackheads. And I have curly hair which rarely gets combed, too. I’m not a grotesque r anything, but if I brush or comb it, it usually ends up in a huge fuzz all. My darling friend (mentioned below) does the same – people think we’re sisters. Her daughters are makeup ninjas. They even do each other’s spray tans and their own lash extensions! My daughter learned about mascara the day of her Year 10 formal…

        Nice girl: I love your last sentence – I am good enough the way I am.

        Do you non-makeup-wearing ladies get compliments about looking younger than you are? I am so lucky that my parents both had beautiful things skin. My father died very young, but even at 90, and on her deathbed, Mamma’s skin was lovely.

        Even so, I love how other ladies look with their faces on. Some are so clever at blending, contouring etc. Or playing up their eyes – I love that!

    • Cee says:

      I use a $2 make up sponge. Best investment I ever made.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Hahaha! Same here, Sixer. My darling best friend is one of those who will not go to the letterbox without her makeup on. I’m the complete opposite. She also likes making her own lotions, bath salts, cleansers etc. For Christmas, I’ve bought her a kit for making her own mineral makeup, including eye shadws and lip colours. From another website, I’ve bought her a set of makeup brushes – a well-known Australian brand. They cost me $29.95. I know they’re really good quality, as I bought my son’s partner a set a couple of years ago, and she loves them. I don’t now anyone who would buy Kylie’s overpriced stuff, not even the makeup freaks.

    • Lucy says:

      Well aren’t you just such a special snowflake?
      announcing you don’t wear makeup and acting like people who do are crazy is so annoying.

      • Shambles says:

        Sixer is a longtime poster here, and I can say confidently that her intention wasn’t to insinuate that makeup-wearers are crazy. I know there are people who actually do that, and you’re right, it’s rude and annoying. Live and let live. Sixer here, however, isn’t one of those people. She has her own distinctive way of being in the world and she likes to make jokes about it. I highly doubt that any harm was intended.

      • Sixer says:

        I’m in trouble on another thread as well today! Oopsy! I don’t brush my hair much, either. I think I should get an actual medal for that.

        You do you, Lucy. I’ll carry on doing me. My tongue is always firmly in my cheek, as Shambles knows!

      • SoulSPA says:

        Loud clap, @Sixer.

      • bikki says:

        agreed, what was the point of her comment even? to subtly throw shade at those that do use makeup and makeup brushes? does that make her special or something?

      • Cee says:

        Her point, I think, was to be glad she doesn’t care much about makeup that she wouldn’t ever be tempted to feel the need to spend so much money on a brush set.

        I love make up, I wear it every day, and I found her comment harmless and just Sixer-esque. And I use a $2 make up sponge, just saying.

      • jwoolman says:

        It’s not a moral issue. Wearing makeup or not seems to go in and out of fashion. Since I’m intolerant of artificially scented products (my poor mother had to take off her lipstick in the car when I drove her from the airport, I was coughing so much), I am really lucky that when I grew up, only one student in the whole high school wore makeup and most of the teaching staff didn’t. Same throughout college and three years of college teaching. When the fashion turned again to using makeup, I had to use a charcoal mask when I needed to use the school library for my work.

        My mother seemed to only wear lipstick when she went out of the house ordinarily and that seemed to be more when she was a lot older. But in her younger days, if it was a “night out” she would do more. Watching her apply it, I wondered why she did it. I preferred the way she looked without it. I like the normal color of lips also. It’s rather startling to see pictures of celebrities with and without makeup. In most cases, they are unrecognizable without their makeup. I suppose that will be handy if they are ever on the run from the law.

        I was also very lucky that nobody expected me to wear makeup at work, and when I worked in a lab it would have been dangerous for me and my samples. Judging from pictures I see of other scientists, women who are in my fields still don’t feel compelled to do it. They look fine to me, so I would suggest that women who feel they have to wear makeup at certain rare events might rethink if they don’t enjoy it.

        Some people just like makeup as an artistic thing. My only problem with that is when the cosmetics are artificially scented. Exposure to so many artificial fragrances is resulting in more and more people with my problem, according to nurses I’ve had to warn about it. So it’s worth looking for cosmetics that are unscented, for your own sake as well as for others. Wearing scented products is really like smoking – you’re contaminating the air with extra substances that can be a problem for others breathing that air. And they do definitely spread into the air, and also spread scent onto products you touch such as paper money or clothing or any kind of paper, I have to keep some bills and all paper money in sealed bags with activated charcoal. Guys also wear scented products that can make me run in the other direction. In addition to various scented colognes and shaving products and deodorants, soap and shampoo and laundry product residues can linger for days on anybody.

        To me, it also seems noisy in an olfactory sense to wear products at the same time with so many different fragrances. Another good reason to aim toward unscented cosmetics, shampoos, soaps, and detergents. I know my mother found a lipstick finally that didn’t give me coughing fits, so that’s a good trend!

        Some people also find that something they are routinely using is actually the reason for chronic problems when they have to stop using it for a job or an allergic relative or friend. One acquaintance was a musician and found that when she visited her mother in a fragrance-free environment, she actually played her violin better.

  6. Alissa says:

    I do like her lip kits the best, I’ve tried a few others and none of them stay all day and feel fine on my lips. I still think they’re overpriced, but I’m willing to spend a little bit more and I have something that’ll work the way I want it too. Haven’t tried anything else though because I’m not that big into makeup.

  7. Jussie says:

    $360 for a 16 piece brush set isn’t bad if they are in fact decent quality natural brushes. I doubt the quality will be amazing, but if they’re ok to good, they’re actually priced competitively.

    For comparisons sake Wayne Goss’s brushes have only been around a few years, and he charges $250 for a set of 6 (highly recommend btw). Japanese brushes can cost a lot more than that. Even similar synthetic brush sets from affordable brands like Sigma can cost over $200. As for brands like MAC having a reputation, it’s not like they priced their brushes cheaply to begin with until they had said reputation. That’s not how it works.

    • HK9 says:

      I’ve had a MAC brush since 1998. I washed it and took care of it all of those years and it’s still in pristine condition. I used it this morning.

      • Veronica says:

        The MAC 239 is basically the holy grail of brushes for me. I will legitimately stop wearing eyeshadow if they ever get rid of that baby. I’ve had mine for about eight years, and it’s still in good condition. I really need to buy more now that my job requires so much traveling.

      • Laur says:

        MAC test on animals, I can’t buy their stuff now knowing that. There’s loads of makeup brands I used to like until I researched them and found they tested on animals. Even Benefit is a grey area, in the UK they say they are cruelty free but elsewhere they do test on animals… But of a minefield sometimes.

  8. Reef says:

    This is hilarious because those folks on Twitter were right. She’s been in the makeup industry for 2 years (?) and she’s comparing her brand to industry standards like MAC and Kevin Aucoin. If you can afford $340 for brushes, save up a little more and get Kevin Aucoin.

  9. Anastasia says:

    Good for you! NYX is also never tested on animals. I’m quite sure Kylie’s stuff is tested on animals.

    e.l.f. is also never tested on animals. Ditto Wet & Wild, just to name a few drug store lines that aren’t expensive.

    • Milla says:

      Sadly NYX was bought by certain company and they do testing on animals in China…

    • gabbie says:

      kylie’s cosmetics are cruelty free and vegan.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Her brushes are neither of those things of they are natural – which she says they are.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Kylie’s makeup is cruelty free and vegan. I’m not a fan of most of her stuff but I will give her props for that. However – the brush set is not since she is using natural hair bristles.

      • OriginalLala says:

        no, her products are not vegan. She has some vegan products but her makeup line is not vegan. Also, her brushes are made from animal fur, which is not vegan either.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @OriginalLaLa The majority of her products are in fact vegan with the exception of the items that contain carmine. Very similarly to Kat Von D’s line which is also primarily vegan. And like I stated the brushes are not vegan since they have natural bristles which are from animals

  10. Mar says:

    I never have and never will support this family and never will they make a dollar off of me. They only steal ideas and rebrand them with their names. Unoriginal bunch of twats

    • Milla says:


      But then again why spend money on some celebraty line when you can buy from companies which have been around forever and still cannot replace them…

      Btw, there’s vegan cheap make up in DM, german store. It’s great and very light, doesn’t make you feel like you’re wearing Photoshop.

  11. JustJen says:

    My teenage daughter requested some Kylie stuff for Christmas, but she knows better than to even suggest spending that kind of money on makeup- let alone brushes! As far as lip kits, Jeffree Starr makes a GREAT line of lipsticks that stay forever. I have to actually wash the rest off at the end of the day. He only sells online at his own website, and each lipstick is $18. My nail girl told me about him and I’m forever grateful.

    • anna says:

      you should research who it is you are supporting there. he is awful, imho.

    • dodgy says:

      If you must… buy colorpop stuff — they make Kyle Cosmetics makeup and it’s good quality for a fraction of the price.

    • gabbie says:

      his liquid lips really are the best you can buy.

    • A says:

      If you honestly think Jeffree Starr, a fairly vocal racist bigot, is better than Kylie Jenner, I have a bridge to sell you that’s going for a great price.

      Do your daughter a favour and try not to buy her makeup that profits a-holes like Jeffree Starr and Kylie Jenner.

  12. Veronica says:

    To be brutally honest, $360 is really not that much for a brush set if it’s high quality. It’s not what most of us can afford to drop for everyday makeup, but it’s easily in the range of what a makeup artist could drop on a professional set – if not more. I have about $150 worth of brushes, a mix of low and higher end, that I’ve collected over the years, and depending on your usage, some of them are worth dropping money on. Most of mine are MAC or Sephora, but if you really want to dabble in higher end, you can easily drop $90 on one item from NARS or Tom Ford.

    Now, whether the quality meets the price tag is an entirely different issue.

    • dodgy says:

      Morphe brushes are decent for not much money. Zoeva (German brand) is one that I’m loving as well. Real Techniques are good mid-priced brushes that do the business. Ecotools do lovely soft brushes (but their eye brushes can be a bit dodgy structurally). For MAC, if you buy the travel sized Christmas brushes, you do get a good little set for a decent price that lasts ages (I have a mac set of Brushes that have lasted me YEARS). If you’re going to drop $360 on brushes, might as well go with a trusted name. I’d gladly drop money on brushes like Mac, Japonesque (who make Tom Ford brushes as well as brushes for other brands) but some brushes aren’t worth the money. Like that £60 Marc Jacobs bronzer brush (all white) where you can buy the same style of brushes from Morphe at a fraction of the price.

      Kendall knows her marks, I guess.

      • Jussie says:

        Morphe is really, really poor quality. Zoeva’s average, on the same level as Sigma. RT is ok for synthetic brushes. MAC’s holiday sets aren’t at all comparable to their main line, which itself has been getting worse and worse since they stopped being Japanese made. I don’t know any pro’s who buy new MAC except those who work for MAC.

      • dodgy says:

        @Jussie – I am happy with my Morphe brush (I have the oversized bronzer brush, I think – no way am I buying a TF or MJ for £60). Zoeva and Sigma don’t scratch. I got my mac travel set years ago, and their eye brushes have yet to let me down. I haven’t bought a mac brush recently. Which makeup brushes would you recommend?

    • Pumpkin (formally soup, pie) says:

      Yes, on a professional set. Who else needs a 16 brush set? Really. I love make-up and I use make-up, but there is no way I would buy so many brushes. I forced myself to watch a make-up video once, this girl used – I counted! – 8 brushes ONLY on her eyes. It’s ridiculous. Talk about creating needs when we don’t really need that much. I use liquid foundation or CC and I apply it with my fingers, then I buff it with the buffing brush which I also use to apply my powder. For eye shadow, I like those sponge applicators, then I blend everything with a blending brush. Easy breezy. Then I have one for my blush.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        Exactly. One tip I got from a prominent beauty YouTuber was to buy brushes individually. She said sets were a waste of money and she was right. When I first started doing my makeup regularly I bought a cheap full makeup brush set. And I used 3-4 out of the 12 brushes it contained. Not only is it cheaper but it’s just smarter to buy the brushes individually. It’s also a great way to amass a decent brush collection that will actually get used regularly

  13. JA says:

    Hahaha!!! I did my own makeup for my sisters wedding and actually took the time to do bb cream, foundation, concealer, blush, mascara, eyeliner, shadow, etc…basically the whole shebang with either namebrand drugstore or ulta brand gear. Spent about $30-40 TOTAL for EVERYTHING including new brushes & got so many compliments for how well my makeup looked— who knew taking the time matters! I can’t imagine how insecure people are that they believe $350 brushes are going to make them look more beautiful than a $5 dollar brush! Kylie targets young girls for a reason… young girls with mom and dad’s money actually! A fool and their money??

  14. LittlefishMom says:

    If you like her stuff and like the brushes, but then. If not, then don’t. It’s really not that complicated. If her “fans” are willing then have at it. For me, it’s a no.

  15. Oopygoopy says:

    Ditto on Anna’s comment- jeffree star is walking talking mean girl trash.

  16. Tiffany says:

    I am just so happy I am not the only one who thought her products were overpriced.

    She and Kendall had a line with the company Charming Charlie. Those hedious bas were averaging $60 when the average for a large structure bag was a quarter that. I always checked the website and it never sold old and immediately went on sale.

    I think that they will not be keeping this up for long. The tide will turn on them.

  17. LittlefishMom says:

    *buy them.

  18. HeyThere! says:

    I guess it depends on what you are really into. I am into coffee and have spent wayyy too much money on home machines and quality beans but I can make a mean cup. LOL Zero regrets!

    I would never spend that kind of money on makeup or accessories for makeup because I am not into makeup. I have chapstick and lotion I slather on all day. Ha! When I do apply eye makeup(once a month maybe), I don’t mind it but it doesn’t fit into my day to day. I just don’t feel like I need a full face of makeup for my infant. I don’t think there is anything wrong with makeup but I just am kind of over it. Also, after a decade of almost never wearing makeup my skin has never looked better!!!

    Also, I saw on a blind makeup review that her makeup lip kits smell like frosting and is very overly scented. And that the lip kits dry the crap out of your lips. I have not tried them but the testers in the video didn’t know it was her lip kit and said it was the cheapest out of three they were blindly testing. Yikes.

    • A says:

      Yes! We all have that one thing that always gets us, even if we objectively know it’s overpriced sh-t. And yet we want it and are willing to spend the money on it. My personal weakness is Moleskine anything. As if having a Moleskine notebook is somehow automatically going to make me more productive, lol! And yet, you won’t see me not buying one just on the off chance that it might help.

        @A – if you like Mokeskine Leuchtturm1917 is a good brand to look into. Their notebooks range from A6 to A4, and they have lines, dots and quadrilled. What’s amazing is that you can use fountain pens or heavily inked pens on the pages and they don’t bleed – no where near as moleskin.

        My blindspot is makeup, especially nars anything. As a medium dark skinned woman it’s hard getting makeup that shows up on my skin. Nars does that, and now that I’ve discovered their palettes, I’m in trouble…

    Did someone say that her makeup was vegan? I find that super hard to believe. I tried to search around but don’t find actual ingredient lists anywhere. eta: I did find a list of which products are vegan, but can’t seem to find actual ingredient lists.

    I only use vegan makeup and toiletries and it’s expensive but so worth every penny. I even try to stock up because I have this huge fear of losing my job and then not being able to stay chemical-free. haha

    I don’t think it’s just the fact that MAC cosmetics and such are more established. The fact is that those other brands are known for their quality, and it’s well-known that they’re not exactly for daily casual use if you’re purchasing a whole set. Kylie’s brushes aren’t that. She’s banking on her popularity to make up for the price point, but we’ll see how it goes.

    Tbh, I dunno sometimes. I dislike Kylie Jenner because I think she’s had the benefit of a rich, if trashy, family who have buoyed her business. I’m not gonna hate on the people who buy her stuff though. They seem young, and what are your teenage years for if not buying ridiculously overpriced garbage because they’re the hottest fad around? Heck, there are grown ups who will buy things specifically because they’re branded or because someone popular endorsed it. Even if said item is hot rubbish. At least teenagers have youth on their side. I’ll give it five to ten years before they realize just how they were taken for fools, provided nostalgia doesn’t cloud their recollection like it does for so many others.

    Well I’m im the minority on this thread because I love makeup. I always have but didn’t really start wearing a full face of makeup until about a year ago and I’m in my mid-thirties. I was going through a particularly bad bout of depression and I started watching YouTube makeup tutorials to take my mind off of things. I started to try out a lof of thw atuff I was seeing and it’s been a blast. Makeup is truly an art form and learning a new skill has been amazing. Having said all that: Kylie needs to get over herself. Yes natural brishes ARE more expensive- but the people charging those prices are well known brands and makeup artists who have stellar reputations in the industry for their work and have been in the hame for literally decades. Her brand is 2 years old. She has not earned the rep to charge that kind of money for ANYTHING. Why would I spend $360 on her brushes when I could buy Wayne Goss’ for $290?? Or Kevin Aucoin’s?? But I use synthetic brushes. I have never spent more than $6 for a single brush. There are TONS of affordable brushes sets that work great. I am currently obsessed with ColourPop’s new brushes. They are amazing and I only buy the ones I want. Sets are a waste of money.

      I wish I was better at eyemake up!!! I can NEVER get the right eye as good as I can my left eye. Ha! But I almost never wear makeup so I’m not practicing often. Ops!

    NYX is cruelty free! I’ll take that any day over Kylie’s death brushes.

    Who would buy panties from her? Maybe it’s just because I keep thinking of what Kim did to get famous – being peed on – but thinking of buying underwear from any of them gives me the heebie-jeebies.

    NYXfor lip shades. Elf for brushes. $350 is what u spend in five years on make up.
