Kylie Jenner has made quite the profit from her business and beauty brand “Kylie Cosmetics.” After years of doing her own makeup and having fans obsessed with her look, the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner family came out with her own brand that started off with just lip kits. After having some lip work done herself, Kylie hid the “truth” for months and blamed her full-looking lips on using liner and the right lip gloss. Of course, fans wanted a way to get fuller lips without the cosmetic procedure and bought into the idea that with a simple lip kit, their lips can look 10x bigger *sigh*. Sure, the lip kits are good products, but for the prices Kylie charges, I’m not about that life.
After Kylie’s lip kits took off, she decided to create an entire line of cosmetics that included lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, and concealers. So, basically, Kylie came out with an entire makeup line with her name on it, for fans who are always obsessed with her looks. I secretly wonder if she uses her own makeup products all of the time, but that’s just me.
Along with her new products and lines, Kylie announced she’d be coming out with a new line of makeup brushes, as well.
While the brushes are pretty nice and come with absolutely every kind of brush one would need to complete a look, they’re hella expensive. I mean, $360 for makeup brushes? Is Kylie serious?
Fans were not impressed with Kylie’s decision to overprice her makeup brushes and they took to Twitter to retaliate.

After fans had taken over Twitter to tell Kylie it’s a bit f*cked up that she’s charging so much for her brushes, Kylie decided to actually answer her fans online and tell them why she’s charging so much.

Kylie took to Twitter saying:
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.— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) December 10, 2017
I always fight for the lowest price on all my products. Here are some other real brush lines for reference pic.twitter.com/mOxwmFJJcM— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) December 10, 2017
But i hear you guys, love you guys and truly just want the best.— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) December 10, 2017
But, fans weren’t having it.
Kylie honey I love you but Mac and Kevin Aucoin have been around a long time. They had earn the privilege to charge those prices because before social media exploded the word of mouth was that they are good. Do u get why they we are so outraged? Your company has been around only— Genesis Tollichi ? (@GenesisTollichi) December 10, 2017
Man she thinks she deserves that “15 + year in the industry, renowned, known for amazing quality, years of experience” coin but been serving nothing but average since she been into makeup.— Mar ☀️ (@ftdotmarsss) December 10, 2017
Seriously and I understand that other cosmetics for instance MAC have the same cost of expensive brushes but what kylie doesn’t comprehend is that she’s not MAC ???like she already rich as fuck she should be making affordable cosmetics...— Maribizzal (@mariibell_) December 14, 2017
Kylie's brushes are so damn expensive, $360 for such a cheap quality? Ano na.— แอนดรู (@kitmardicas) December 14, 2017
kylie cosmetics brushes is so FUCKIN EXPENSIVE YYYYYY???— gabbi. (@janjunay) December 14, 2017
Why would anyone want to buy @KylieJenner full set of brushes for $360?!! She’s hella stupid for that price not even morphe brushes are that expensive vete ala verga Kylie— Jennifer Rodriguez (@liljenni_) December 13, 2017
I think it’s a bit much for Kylie to sell brushes at such a high price, especially when she knows her fans are pretty damn young and broke – what teenage girl has $360 laying around to buy makeup? Come on now girl, know your market.
