The 5 stages of trying to buy a Kylie Jenner lip kit


We can’t talk enough about Kylie’s matte liquid lipstick and lip liner combos, better known as her lip kits. Sorry, sorry, we know. But tonight, thanks to Kylie dropping the exact date and time of the restock on her app, we finally experienced exactly what it feels like to successfully purchase a lip kit. Here’s how it goes.

Stage One: Preparation

Did you pick the top shade you wanted, two safe shades, and one shade you don’t even like but will buy anyway if it’s the only thing left? Now are you properly stretched? Hydrated? Where’s your credit card? It’s K-Y-L-I-E, right? Which is your fastest browser?

Stage Two: Waiting

Now the waiting game begins, because obviously you’re sitting at your computer half an hour before the restock actually occurs just to be safe. As the time nears, your nose is 2 inches from the screen, staring at the seconds counter. 55, 56, 57…

Stage Three: Go time

REFRESH. ADD TO BASKET. GO TO CHECK OUT. ENTER SHIPPING ADDRESS. ENTER PAYMENT DETAILS. HAVE YOU EVER TYPED THIS FAST IN YOUR LIFE?

Stage Four: Relief

You did it. You got the color you wanted, the confirmation email is in your inbox, and somewhere in the universe, Kylie Jenner is counting her money.

Stage Five: Regret

Wait a minute. Did you really just spend $29 on a lipstick? Yes, you did. And wait, some of the colors haven’t sold out yet. Maybe you didn’t buy enough. You don’t really like that other color, but there it is. You could sell it on eBay for twice the price. Why did you only buy one?! Why did you buy one at all…
