Kylie Jenner's Lip Kit Is Ruining Lives (According to the Internet, Anyway)

01/07/2016 at 05:52 PM ET

If you’ve participated in the emotional roller coaster that is shopping for Kylie Jenner‘s Lip Kit by Kylie, you’re certain to have experienced one of three outcomes: 1. You succeeded in purchasing your favorite color — and received it in all its glory; 2. You didn’t succeed, and have been crying yourself to sleep every night since; or 3. The worst of them all — you successfully purchased it, received your confirmation, but NEVER RECEIVED YOUR LIP KIT. If you’re suffering from No. 3, you’re not alone.

Fans all over the world are melting the Internet with the fury that comes with a set of lips are still lacking the tender touch of Kylie’s masterpiece. After surviving the turmoil of refreshing, adding to cart, and purchasing with success, their lip kits never arrived at their doorsteps. The horror.

It’s an issue that’s been going on since before the holidays, with the star blaming some delivery warehouse mix-ups and other postal crises that were out of her manicured hands. But if you’re still feeling distraught, there’s hope. Kylie teased some new shades on Snapchat, and also confirmed an upcoming restock.

Not convinced that there’s light at the end of the tunnel? One troubled customer shared her story with PeopleStyle, and it indeed has a happy ending:

“I was basically waiting at my computer at 11:59am, heart racing, like I was trying to get Adele concert tickets even though I think this was harder. (I didn’t even get Adele tickets though so maybe I’m wrong here.)

At noon on the dot, I added all three lip kits to my cart (kart?) anticipating that some of the colors might be sold out. When I clicked purchase, it just loaded and loaded and loaded … and loaded … and finally said there was an error. I’ve been trying really hard lately to be a cool big sister, so I tried for over an hour, providing Snapchats to my sister so she could see how hard I was working for her. Finally I gave up.

Later that afternoon, I checked my bank account and noticed I was charged more than $90 for the Kylie Lip Kits. So I checked my spam folder and lo and behold, there was a confirmation email saying I had purchased all three. I felt like the belle of the ball, like Kris Jenner starring in her own music video, like Kim in front of a giant wall of flowers.

I finally got an email on December 4th saying my order was processed and the lip kits were shipped. But when I waited a couple of weeks and nothing had happened, I assumed they were gone forever. WHERE WERE THEY ON DECEMBER 17? HUH?

I couldn’t handle the look of disappointment on my sister’s face when she accepted the fact that no, I hadn’t been making up the drama. It wasn’t a fake out. The lip kits just weren’t there.

But to our surprise, they arrived in time for New Year’s Eve, and she sent me a Snapchat of the kits with the following excitement: ‘I’ve never felt more complete.'”

Seriously, these girls are devastated by this? They better get better prepared for real life! This is so sad and pathetic that this is what society has come to.

So adults with bank accounts buy this?

This is quite possibly the most stupid story ever in the history of the universe.

Her lips are ginormous compare to her thin natural lips. I had no idea lips can get THAT inflated if they are as thin as hers. She looks ridiculous and what’s even more ridiculous is that girls are actually spending their parents money to buy this junk.

Stupid little white girls

People who think buying this lipstick will make their lips like Kylie’s are mistaken, unless they were born with lips like that or have had the same plastic surgery procedure.

Yes I am super eager to try Kylie’s magical time machine, that somehow transforms 18 year old girls into middle aged hookers.

She looks like a Bratz doll with green hair. Not a good look for anyone. If she’s trying to give us “sexy” in the above photo, sorry, but it ain’t working. 100% fake from head to toe and she’s only 18.

This is what happened…they produced 100 kits to see if they would be popular. They sold all of the kits within minutes as 100 kits are nothing. They bragged about how popular they were. Well, compared to the inventory they looked popular but they are not really because they don’t have any inventory. They are probably making them to order that’s why the wait is so long after they have swiped the money from your account. The Kartrashian fans are such idiots.

It’s fcuking lipstick. Bunch of dumb s h its making this family richer and richer everyday.
And just in case everyone wasnt aware – her lips dont look like that because of her lipstick kit.
