Kylie Jenner's LipKits are Cancelled: 5 Alternative LipKits Created by a WOC

For the past 2 and a half years, Kylie Jenner’s lip kits have been wildly popular. The kits have achieved massive success and a lot of people are proud to exhibit Kylie’s products as a part of their ever growing makeup collection.


Unfortunately, black and brown women have been displeased with Kylie Jenner’s blatant appropriation of black/brown culture.  Recently Jenner has been accused of stealing clothing designs from Tizita Balemlay, the creative force behind ASOS brand Plugged NYC, in trying to create her own fashion brand.


And let's not forget that about 2 weeks ago, Kylie and her sister Kendall caught heat after they released what appeared to be t-shirts of their faces superimposed on top of images of hip hop legends like Tupac and Biggie. This enraged many people who felt like these two had disrespected symbols of black culture for monetary gain.


The list of infractions that Kylie Jenner goes on and on; and while she may have popularized the matte lip trend, the increased dissatisfaction in her decisions as a person behind the brand have lead potential brown and black customers looking for other alternatives.
