Didn't get your hands on Kylie Jenner Lip Kit? The wait is over. This conspiracy theory will surely save you hundreds of dollars.
Alright folks. We have some love for Kylie Jenner. Despite the continual criticism she and her family seem to come under (some of which, y'know... isn't great), she's still managed to take over the world with her fashion and makeup. And recently, she launched her
Kylie Jenner Lip Kit Candy K
, and it sold out the first minute it launched. Ahuh.. and we're so jealous. Girls all over the world are asking for more, patiently waiting on the next batch.
But what recently caught our attention is this conspiracy theory about her lip kit. It says that Kylie Jenner Lip Kit are actually repackaged
, and this is not just a baseless theory.
According to Reddit
, the rumor started to surface soon after the lip kits all sold out in a single minute on Monday. Upset fans were begging for a quick restock (we'll be seeing more before Christmas) but savvy beauty bloggers noticed similarities in the swatches.
(and shortly deleted), "Let's say you want the kits but not spend the money, pay close attention to Colourpop's 'Clueless,' 'Beeper,' and 'Limbo.'" From here, the conspiracy theory spiraled out of control. Read on to see the evidence.
Swatches comparing the sold-out lip kits to the ColourPop shades (like this one) began to spread around Instagram like wildfire. Before you point out that the top shades are especially different, keep in mind that the lighting, skin tone, and filters are all different.
