People Think Kylie Jenner Is Selling Old Lip Kit Colours And Changing Their Names To Make More Money

They do look remarkably similar....
Kylie Jenner Lip Kits have been a consistent success since their first release in November, 2015. Of course, her cosmetics have faced their fair share of controversies from fake product being sold on shady sites as the real deal, to being accused of "copying" other brands.
Now, Kylie will have to answer to a different kind of controversy as customers allege colours are being re-sold under different names to make more money.
Kylie Cosmetics has been repackaging their general line lipsticks and making them limited edition. Example: spice and blitzen pic.twitter.com/VbVNqfahFs— Michelle Contreras (@MichiContreras) February 6, 2017
Here's why customers are so angry.
First of all, the individual liquid lipsticks are expensive. Fans frequently post about NYX and Colorpop dupes that are the exact same quality and colour but cost 5 times less. People who buy lip kits know there are cheaper dupes. But, because they trust Kylie's brand, they overlook that.
I still have no idea how Kylie Jenner is getting away with repackaging Colourpop and selling a $6 lip color and $5 for over $30— j(anuary)ulia (@chacmooljules) January 2, 2017
Fans think they bought a "limited edition" colour that had previously shown up with a different name and slightly different packaging.
@KylieJenner why does Blitzen look exactly like Spice? Asking for a friend— liscruzy (@Lisssssvet_) December 4, 2016
In this case, if you bought the 4 piece holiday set and then the standalone "KYLIE Spice", you'd be paying over $75 for six products. Two of them remarkably similar.
Believe it or not, there are people who buy every single lip kit as soon as it drops. So, this will be especially disappointing to them.
There may be a perfectly logical explanation why the colours are so similar but Kylie has yet to speak publically about the allegations.
