It feels like days ago when Kylie Jenner just released three new shades from her massively popular lip kit line. Well that’s because it was merely just days ago when the reality star dropped the shades around Valentine’s Day. Now, Kylie is expanding her makeup empire by rolling out another hot new shade that’s already sold out.
The Kylie Jenner Lip Kit business just keeps growing. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star just added her latest shade and restocked her previous shades, according to a report published via the Hollywood Life. Jenner, 18, has been teasing the new orange shade on Instagram for the past few weeks.
Kylie first started hinting that a new shade was coming soon at New York Fashion Week. She was spotted wearing both Candy K and Koko K when she sat front row to support Kendall Jenner who was walking in Vera Wang. After the show, Kylie took to Instagram to reveal that her BFF Jordyn Woods was wearing the mysterious new tint.
Instead of naming it after Candy K, Koko K, and Mary Jo K, Jenner named the orange-red hue after her favorite number, 22. You can try to get your hands on 22 directly on her Kylie Cosmetics site, or you can purchase her restocked original shades: Candy K, Koko K, Dolce K, and Posie K. Mary Jo K and True Brown K are currently still sold out.
If you still can’t get your hands on any of Kylie Jenner’s lip kits, then try out her debut collection for Sinful Colors. The starlet went for an understated look at the Signature Sinful Color Official Launch Party on Saturday, Feb. 24 in Los Angeles. Kylie’s nail collection was released early last week, and is available at Walmart. The collection includes the shades Kovet, Kommando, Kreme de la Kreme, Kryptonite, and Minty Fresh.
The dark-haired beauty took to Instagram to post the new colors, writing, “Had to add in my signature teal and mint green!”
Kylie Jenner is trying to expand her cosmetics empire by trademarking the name “Kylie,” but pop star Kylie Minogue is against the idea. She even threw some serious shade at the reality star on Twitter and in recent court documents.
“Hello……My name is KYLIE #lightyears,” the 47-year-old Australian singer tweeted on Sunday, Feb. 28. She was quoting a lyric from her 2000 track “Light Years,” from her album of the same name. The hashtag is also a reference to the 30 years of experience that Minogue has in the entertainment industry over Jenner.
But Kylie Jenner wants to use her name in the U.S. to expand her ever-growing beauty and fashion collections. Last week court documents revealed that KDB, a firm that represents Kylie Minogue, opposed Jenner’s application, claiming that allowing Jenner to use “Kylie” name would cause confusion among Minogue’s fans and would downgrade her brand.
KDB also shades Jenner by calling her a “secondary reality television personality” who has appeared as “a supporting character” on episodes of KUWTK. The claim then describes Minogue as an “internationally renowned performing artist, humanitarian, and breast cancer activist.”
The singer already owns various trademarks including the name “Kylie” for entertainment and educational purposes. In addition, she has owned the domain kylie.com since Aug. 21, 1996, a year before Kylie Jenner was even born.
The court documents also referenced Jenner’s recent controversies.
“Ms. Jenner is active on social media where her photographic exhibitionism and controversial posts have drawn criticism from, e.g. the Disability Rights and African-American communities.”
Last year, Kylie received criticism from the disability community for posing in a wheelchair for a controversial photo shoot in the pages of Interview magazine. And in February of last year, Kylie was accused of wearing blackface in an intergalactic photo shoot that never ever made the light of day, other than Kylie’s Instagram page.
