Jeffree Star And Manny MUA Are Dragging Kylie Jenner's Brush Set And It's Not Good
20 December 2017, 20:45
The reviews are in! (And they aren't as great as we'd hoped...)
A lot of people have a LOT of issues with Kylie Cosmetics' latest offerings. First, her brand new concealer collection caught a bit of backlash after people started accusing her of copying Rihanna. (We mean, Rihanna didn't invent concealer but it's just funny that since Fenty Beauty's rise, Kylie Cosmetics seems to be playing catch up.)
The second issue that people are calling Kylie out on is the price and quality of her new limited edition make up brush set. If you haven't already heard, Kylie is selling a set of 16 brushes for $360. In comparison, a 16-piece brush set from iconic and established professional make up brand MAC is around $200.
Of course, with a new Kylie Cosmetics drop come the YouTube beauty blogger reviews and let's just say, they haven't been very forgiving. Both Jeffree Star and Manny MUA took Kylie to TASK over the quality and price of her products in their unbiased and honest reviews.
Jeffree shared his brutally honest review of the set and when we say brutally honest, we mean brutally honest...
"This brush set with its cheap old vegan, aluminium fucking silver is just not worth the price point. I definitely think that you're paying for an over-hyped celebrity name and the price – I know, we're all just like 'the price' – I just don't think it's worth it," he said.
While he thought some of the brushes in the set were great, he dragged the rest of the damn thing. He called out the cheap looking silver packaging, and then he called out Kylie for having the nerve to compare her brushes to the legendary make up brands that have been in the game for years
Manny MUA also reviewed the set and um, it didn't go down well either.
Like Jeffree, there were some brushes in the set that Manny really liked but ultimately decided was absolutely NOT worth the price it's being sold at.
"So it's frustrating for me as a consumer... that because it's her name [fans] are going to want to buy this $360 brush set and I just feel like it's not fair and I just feel like it's a little bit too expensive – and by 'a little bit' I mean it's way too f***ing expensive," he said.
James Charles also waded in when the product dropped and said pretty much the same damn thing.

Kylie hasn't responded to any of the reviews personally but did issue a quick Twitter statement when the backlash began. She remains unbothered either way, probably.
I have developed for you guys the most amazing luxury brushes ever. I am very excited! Real brushes don’t compare to synthetic brushes. Different performance/quality/everything. I am 100% down to do an entire synthetic line in the future which will ultimately be cheaper.— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) December 10, 2017
