All hail King Kylie.

What it is Like to Actually Buy Kylie Jenner's Lip Kit

This previous summer, I spent my life trying to become Kylie Jenner. I procured my Tinder photos to reflect her style. I perfected the pout, bought all black clothes, and tried to gain a Kylie-like Instagram presence.

There should be no surprise that when she came out with her Lip Kit, I, like many of her fans was overjoyed.

Kylie has had products in the past that she created herself or promoted, but none of them were affordable enough for her everyday follower. Her hair extension line runs from $200 to $300. The Artís Oval 10 makeup brush she promoted sells for an average of $75. No, thank you, but a liquid lipstick and a lip liner for $30? That’s something I could easily get behind.

I talked myself into buying one the first day it came out, but I was too late. The first round of Lip Kits sold out in less than a minute. I kept trying every time after, but the website would crash or I would be a few minutes too slow to get my hands on what I wanted. I finally settled and said I would buy any Lip Kit that wasn’t sold out. Still no help.

I eventually gave up and convinced myself that I could get way cheaper lipstick in close to the same color, and I was totally OK with that for a little while, until someone I was close to got one.

My roommate, who is also obsessed with the Lip Kits, was able to order one over the past spring break, and got it quickly in the mail one week later. She let me borrow it, and I knew I had to have one. The formula was so unique and the color was like no color I had ever seen in a lipstick. I spent the next week plotting how I could get my own, once again.

The most recent restock, I decided to try again. The Lip Kits were set to restock at 7 P.M. I knew I had to be somewhere with good Wi-Fi, so my dorm was completely out of the option. I drove to a bookstore around 5:00 P.M. and decided to get some homework done before I tried to order the Lip Kit.

I opened up the tabs of the colors I wanted, Dolce K and Koko K, so I could refresh the page as soon as it turned 7:00 P.M. I put the computer aside and opened my textbook, but it was difficult for me to focus on anything but the time.

I found myself ridiculously counting down the minutes for two whole hours, getting more and more stressed the later it got. When it finally hit 7:00 P.M., I refreshed my pages quickly, but was redirected because the website crashed. I quickly typed the url again and got to the page I needed.

I had so much adrenaline when I made it this far that I was practically shaking. I was scared I’d type my address or credit card information wrong, and I wouldn’t get it after all. As soon as my payment processed, I checked my bank account and saw that the money had been taken out of my account and felt so relieved.

Kylie Jenner's promotion of her products on her social media is genius. She posts photos of her Lip Kits and updates daily, keeping her fans always on their feet. This restock sold out of every single shade in 30 minutes, so it obviously works. I am just one of many who sat at their computers waiting for her product to drop. Now all I can do is wait for the day my pretty little package comes in the mail.

50 Iconic Quotes From 'The Golden Girls' That Will Always Make You Laugh

"People waste their time pondering whether a glass is half empty or half full. Me, I just drink whatever's in the glass."


"The Golden Girls" created history when it first premiered in 1985 setting the stage of strong-willed female characters who are aging gracefully with dignity. It is a treasure trove filled with humorous scenes and situations that will always be relevant to watch. I still rejoice in watching these spectacular women embrace life with full stride and the way they always strive to focus on the brighter side of life.

These 4 dynamic and awe-inspiring women taught us that age is indeed nothing more than a number and that we can set out to accomplish anything our heart desires at any time.

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

When pursuing a degree that most deem 'useless' or a 'waste of time' there happens to be a lot of self-doubt and fear, especially with the pending doom of graduation around the corner. I remember when I was about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Acting, I was absolutely terrified.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.
