How You Can Get Kylie Jenner Lip Kits For HALF The Price!
If you're keen to get your hands on one of Kylie Jenner's lip kits but keep missing out in the countless restocks, fear not we have a solution.
There might be another way to get your hands on one of the kits for A LOT cheaper too...
Here's the catch: This product isn't a legit KJ Lip Kit. Instead, it's a VERY similar one, which beauty blogger Stephanie Nicole claims might actually be made using a very similar formula after an extensive bit of investigation.
Nicole put two and two together and found that the updated formula of the KJ lip kit was pretty much identical to the one used to make American beauty brand ColourPop's Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick.
Her explanation is below:
Blue: Same ingredients used in a different order
Pink: Identical pigments, used in a different order
For reference COLOR KEY: Yellow - Same ingredient, same order in formula. Blue - Same ingredient, different order in formula. Purple - Same pigments, different order (pigments are not required to be in order). Please note, this is the updated ColourPop formula. Not the first launch (any color outside their first launch is new formula) Not all ColourPop's ultra mattes have been reformulated yet. According to them, they hope to do it in time. So don't try & compare your first launch to the new Lip Kits...or the first launch lip kits. They are not the same. ADD: also, to be clear, the ingredients do need to be listed in order of highest concentration, to its least. The order does matter in a formula. Even if the ingredients are identical, if they are in a completely different order they won't wear the same. The bulk of the formula, the first several ingredients, are the same, same order. What follows isn't enough to significantly change the wear compared to the new ColourPop Ultra Mattes
According to BuzzFeed, both Kylie Jenner Cosmetics and ColourPop are produced by Seed Beauty at a factory in California! However Kylie has disputed the 'similarity' claims:
SO, Nicole has proven you can actually get a very, very similar product to Kylie's Lip Kits elsewhere for a fraction of the price!
