Fans were miffed, to say the very least, when both the initial launch and subsequent restock of Kylie Jenner's Lip Kits sold out instantaneously. Fans didn't hide their feelings about being left so naked-lipped and they vented on social media. Well, Jenner has revealed that she will release a Valentine's Day Kylie Lip Kit Collection. She also revealed that she is crowd-sourcing the name, truly harnessing the power of the Internet and social media. The news that a fresh trio of colors is on the way certainly lead to a reaction in the Twitterverse.
There were some hilarious tweets about the news and about the Kits in general. But you could also sense both trepidation and frustration among the devotees that have been twice shut out from getting their hands (and lips) on these matte liquid lipsticks.
While limited availability made the Lip Kits difficult to obtain, thereby irritating fans, that also elevated the products to cult status, since we always want what we can't have. This strategy is keeping interest in the suede-like shades sustained.
Let's first peep the bright, bold, and to-be-named color, which Jenner posted in the wee hours of the night. It's gorgeous and will be accompanied by two other colors. This hue steps out of the neutral family of the original three shades.
So insanely stunning, right?
Now, let's look at some entertaining tweets regarding the news, the color, and the kits in general.
Tell us how you really feel! But TBH, I "get" her frustration.
You can sense her anticipation due to repeat emojis!
She knows what she wants and this simple, semi-snarky tweet conveys the desire that so many of us share.
This tweet nails why we, as a kulture, tend to feel the gravitational pull towards celeb-backed and branded items.
The Lip Kits are $29 but they have been selling for much higher prices on third party sites, so there's that.
Ain't too proud to beg for amazing, matte liquid lipsticks!
The gravitational pull is strong on this one!
A blessing for the lips!
The awesomeness of the Kits cannot be denied.
This sums up the universal feeling of disappointment!
Clearly, fans are krazy about the Lip Kits and are komfortable sharing their feelings and emotions in the Twitterverse.
