Kylie Jenner may have to do some damage control soon. People were quick to point out that the price was the only standard of comparison evident by the screenshots, saying that it didn't seem to make sense to compare long-standing, high-end brands with 2-year-old Kylie Cosmetics. In a since deleted Tweet, Jeffree questioned why Kylie was using the same packaging for her concealers as his liquid lipsticks, which have been on the market since 2014.
According to the company, several members of their staff have had to be evacuated from their homes and relocated, along with their families. Though Kylie might just be falling for the hue lately, her absence from her normal social media and event presence raises some eyebrows, suggesting she's hiding something her appearance at the moment might give away.
While a lot of fans were impressed with the sleek silver packaging, cute matching brush roll and the selection of brush shapes that would be hitting shelves on December 13th, a whole lot more were completely shooketh by the mega price tag. In an attempt to mollify any anger about the quality and pricing, the makeup mogul may have inadvertently caused more upset by acknowledging a big reason why some say they can no longer support her brand.
In the tweet, Kylie said: "I have developed for you guys the most awesome luxury brushes ever. I am very excited!" she wrote. She added that she's down to do a more affordable, synthetic brush line in the future. "Different performance/ quality/ everything".
They even told Kylie they would spend it on "more important" things, 'Thanks but I'll buy food with that money instead'.
She said: 'I always fight for the lowest price on all my products.
Her explanation did backfire slightly though, as she also went on to compare the Kylie Cosmetics brushes to a set of Artis Elite Mirror brushes for $360, and an Essential Brush Set from Kevyn Auction for $650 - both of which are seriously high end brands used by professionals.
On the other hand, the source also said that it's undeniable that Kylie is having fun while she is teasing everyone with this baby news.
