Unless your budget for a lip gloss and liner is upwards of $10K, Kylie Jenner's latest product isn't for you — at least not until she releases more. Why? Because the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits are being resold on eBay for a lot of money, with current bids upwards of $10,000. Yes, that's the correct amount of 0s. And yes, my jaw dropped, too.
In a matter of minutes, the three lip sets, available in a light, medium, and dark matte shades, were reportedly sold out online. A mere 24 hours later the kits were being resold on eBay for astronomical sums. While the original price of $29 isn't that bad for the two products — a lip liner and a lipstick — that you receive in each set, the resale prices are ridiculous.
One particular eBar seller started the bidding on a set in the color Dolce K at it's regular price, but since it was first posted, the bid has been driven up to a whopping $10,000. You can still find kits for sale for way, way less than that, but the majority are still more than double the starting price, if not more expensive.
We all knew Jenner's lip kits were going to be popular. After a year of news dedicated to her lips, from the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge to the lip injection rumors which turned out to be true. Lip products designed by the reality star were practically inevitable.
What makes the eBay prices so mind boggling is the fact that the brand has promised to restock before the holidays.
There's no doubt that this product has basically become one of the most coveted makeup item overnight. After all, people don't spend $10K on just anything!
In a dream world, money wouldn't be an issue and we could stock up all the expensive makeup we wanted. A splurge to me is a $9 mascara, but I sometimes wish I could fill my vanity with luxurious makeup items. So, if I could drop $10,000 on a Kylie Lip Kit right at this moment, here are a few other beauty products I would order along with it.
A girl can dream!
1. Tom Ford Lip Stick Set
Tom Ford Lip & Boys 50 Piece Set, $1,950, tomford.com
I would never have to buy another lipstick.
2. La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer and Foundation
Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation Sunscreen SPF 15, $214, laprairie.com
For $200 bucks, you better believe this is a miracle product.
3. La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream
La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream, $2,060, bloomingdales.com
For that price, this stuff better make my skin as soft and smooth as a baby's bottom.
4. Hourglass Powder Palatte
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit, $80, sephora.com
Easily one of the cheaper products in this bunch, but still quite a lot for some face powder. But they're so pretty, aren't they?
5. Elemis Face Wash
Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash, $49, nordstrom.com
Face washes that cost upwards of $10 at Target are a luxury for me, but this one's promising a lot with triple the price tag.
6. Cle De Peau Mascara
Cle De Peau Perfect Lash Mascara, $50, cledepeaubeaute.com
Luscious lashes combined with Jenner's lipsticks? I'll basically have the Kardashian/Jenner makeup look down.
7. Charlotte Tilbury Bronzer and Highlighter
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt and Highlight, $68, nordstrom.com
Can't forget that bronzer and highlighter! Jenner has been known to use this in her own makeup routine, so you know it's going to be worth every penny.
