18 years old Kylie Jenner unveiled her Lip Kit yesterday 30th Nov, and it sold out in less than 2 minute. The lip kit site went live at 12pm EST and immediately told fans the kits were sold out, Eager fans desperate to replicate her pout flocked to the site, LipKitByKylie.com in order to get their hands on the $29 Lip Kit and the rush resulted in her website crashing.Around 12:30pm, Kylie wrote on her Instagram: “So the Internet has been broken lol. But everybody stand by. There are so many people on the site right now we are having some tech issues! We are working on it.” Many were met with an Error message or told their carts were empty despite having added the item.
Fans took to Twitter to complain about her site being down, prompting Kylie to respond: ‘Nobody be upset! There’s so many people trying to buy at once so there are some tech issues.’
She added in a subsequent tweet: ‘Everybody stand by and keep trying! We r [sic] working on it.’
But Kylie’s tweets did little to quell her fans, who were eager to buy the Lip Kit that was two years in the making.
‘I typed my credit card info and it kept saying error, stupid because the items where in my cart too… so annoyed tbh,’ said one user, who went on to complain about Kylie’s lack of apology for the site’s problems.
‘I think more should be added to say “sorry” for these “tech issues” like people like me who had the items in cart,’ she added.
Many other fans said they were not purchasing because of the Lip Kit’s price, which was $37 in total when combined with shipping charges.
Well Lets just say Kylie Jenner underestimated her own popularity.
