Another launch is in the books: Kylie Cosmetics restocked (and sold out) in another record breaking way on Monday afternoon, but many customers were left disappointed and empty-handed. That might change for the next restock, however, because according to the founder's personal Instagram, Kylie Jenner's Lip Kit's site is changing, and here's how it will affect you.
Getting a hold of the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits is notoriously difficult. First, you have to know the exact time to be online — information usually, exclusively given on her app. From there, you have to pray for a strong Wifi signal and quick fingers, because chances are the stock will be gone before you can even check out. Some are even reporting seeing other shopper's personal information when logging on. Lastly, the Internet Gods have to be on your side, because Jenner's site is famous for crashing mid-purchase.
While today's restock sold the most lip kits and glosses ever, according to Jenner, she plans on bringing a big change to KylieCosmetics.com — a new landing page that holds up against massive traffic. Today (according to Jenner's Snapchat story) there were 143,487 live shoppers on the site. Many didn't get a single lip kit or gloss because their pages crashed before they had the chance to check out.
"Sold out!" she captioned on the Kylie Cosmetics Instagram page. "This is the most glosses & mattes we've sold at once EVER! It makes me so happy to see everyone so excited. I'm going to change our holding page ("the line" which keeps my site from crashing because of the mass amounts of people) and find an alternative that still keeps my site up and running. I don't like it either. But I love you guys and my passion for my business is very serious. For the many many people who got their hands on one of my glosses or mattes I can't wait to see you in them. When we come back... METALS."
While many cosmetic lines have years to perfect their products and processes before hitting the big time, Kylie Cosmetics was a cult favorite overnight. It makes sense to give her a little leeway as they fine tune the particulars, so fans, calm down and breathe a little! From personal experience, however, the waiting and shopping cart anxiety is totally worth it — these products are top notch.
