Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit has been an in-demand cosmetic products ever since it was launched. Due to the number of people wanting to buy the product (and adding to the Kardashian-Jenner fortune), Kylie Jenner’s website has crashed more than once and encountered various problems like delayed shipping and just recently, an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau.
This time, another the youngest Jenner sibling is facing another problem when it comes to her lip kits – knock-offs and dupes.
Fans of Kylie Lip Kit have been complaining that they received fake products laced with gasoline and glue from a website that looked exactly like Jenner’s at one glance.
[email protected] fake Koko k I got… Literally has glue in it! So gross!! So not cute…” Twitter user Emma Morgan wrote, along with a video of herself wearing the fake lip kit that appears to have glued her lips together.

Meanwhile, another fan complained of the lip kit she bought from Ebay.
Another user bought a fake lip kit and felt a burning sensation when she wore it.
Jenner responded, saying how sorry she was for the people victimized by the fake products. She also advised them to buy only from her legitimate website.
“The only place to get my products is kyliecosmetics.com, everything else is fake. These other websites are making fake product, it might look exactly like mine, but it’s not mine,” Jenner said on Snapchat. “Make sure you guys check the URL because these other websites are selling fake product.”
Jenner’s original lip kits retails for $29, which has one liquid liner and one liquid lipstick. However, online sellers and fake websites sell them from $4 to $8, sometimes without the lip liner.
The Kylie Cosmetics brand is owned by Seed Beauty, a cosmetics company whose lab also manufactures ColourPop lipsticks. ColourPop reportedly uses the same ingredients as Kylie Lip Kit but for a more affordable price.
