From humble beginnings as a one product business to a makeup line worth over a billion dollars, Kylie Cosmetics has seen exponential growth since its launch in 2015.
Kylie Jenner, the beauty and brains behind the operation, first debuted her company as Kylie Lip Kits, selling matte liquid lipstick and lip liner duos inspired by her signature makeup style. The endeavour apparently cost the reality star $250K to make 15,000 lip kits, which sold out in under one minute flat. People loved them so much they even got Lip Kit tattoos. Yes, really.
A few months later, Kylie Lip Kits became Kylie Cosmetics to encompass more than just lip kits, and that’s when the business really grew legs.
Over the years, Kylie’s expanded her brand well beyond her signature lip kits, with the makeup mogul releasing a number of Kylie Cosmetics products including eyeshadow collections, glosses, highlighters, concealers, blushes, bronzers, liners, makeup brushes and more.
And whether you’re a Kardashian fan or not, there’s no denying that the Kylie Cosmetics products are seemingly worth the splurge, with rave reviews from beauty influencers and consumers alike.
With Christmas just a few pay cheques away, it’s a convenient excuse to get you hands on some Kylie Cosmetics if you haven’t already. A (slightly exxy) stocking stuffer, perhaps?
But wait. Just how can you buy Kylie Cosmetics in Australia?
Unlike our lucky American counterparts who can just nip into their local Ulta, us Aussies can only get our Kylie Cosmetics fix online at kyliecosmetics.com.
It’s important to note the e-commerce site lists prices in USD, so you’ll have to enlist the help of a calculator (or Google) when converting to AUD before checking out.
And while you may not be able to swatch the products before purchase, international shipping only takes 10-15 business days (according to the FAQs), plus shipping is free if you spend over $60 USD!
So if you plan to splurge in the name of free shipping, here are five of the best Kylie Cosmetics products to add to your cart.
