Kylie Jenner Has FINALLY Responded To Claims Her Lip Kits Are A Rip Off Of A Much Cheaper Product
She's finally laying those rumours to rest.
Everything Kylie Jenner touches seems to turn into gold, and since the launch of her beauty brand back in November last year, every product the reality-star-turned-beauty-mogul has launched has been an instant sell out success. (We’re still trying to get our hands on a lip kit. Wah!)
Of course, her budding beauty brand has also encountered its fair share of scrutiny, including negative reviews from fellow beauty bizz entrepreneur Jeffree Star and down ratings from the Better Business Bureau, to name a few.
One particularly cutting criticism that Kylie is yet to shake off is the claim that her Lip Kits, which retail at $30, are really just a rebrand of Colour Pop’s Liquid Lipsticks, that sell for $6.
Essentially, at the time of launch, many people claimed that Ky’s product was just ColourPop with her name slapped on it and a higher price point.
The bad reviews only intensified when ColourPop later confirmed that Kylie’s Liquid Lipsticks were owned by the same parent company and manufactured in the same facility.
So far Kylie’s remained schtum on the topic, leaving her fans to speculate online about whether or not the products are the same, with many noting that both brands look and feel very similar.
After months of speculation though, Kylie has finally decided to put those rumours to rest, and this week took to her app to completely deny that her and ColourPop’s products were linked.
In a video, KJ states: “ColourPop and I are not the same. I have an exclusive formula that I created it myself.”
However, she does add that she and ColourPop share some of the same production resources. “We have the same manufacturer, along with so many other brands. Just like how those big brands aren’t ColourPop is exactly how my brand is.”
“I really love ColourPop, I do,” she concludes. “But we’re not the same.”
Basically? While Kylie’s Lip Kits and ColourPop do share factory space, like heaps of other brands, they are two completely separate products.
That’s us told. Now, excuse us, we’re off to stock up on Dolce K.
