Kylie Jenner Is Being Called The Scam Artist Of The Century Over Her New $360 Brush Set
Kylie fans and makeup enthusiasts alike are calling out Kylie Jenner for the atrocious quality of her ridiculously overpriced cosmetics products, as well as for her company's awful customer service.
Call them jealous, call them hateful, but don't call them liars. These people have no reason to lie because the products basically speak for themselves - frayed unused lip wands, half-empty tubes, broken (and sometimes missing) powder blocks in blush compacts, and low-grade packaging materials are just some of the actual issues customers around the world have reported about Kylie Cosmetics products.
The latest product to get ripped apart is Kylie's new "luxury" brush set, which just dropped on Dec. 13. People are accusing her of overpricing the set (they retail at a whopping $360), but the reality star continues to defend the high price point, justifying it with the fact that the brushes are "real" and don't compare to synthetic ones:
I have developed for you guys the most amazing luxury brushes ever. I am very excited! Real brushes don’t compare to synthetic brushes. Different performance/quality/everything. I am 100% down to do an entire synthetic line in the future which will ultimately be cheaper.— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) December 10, 2017
Unfortunately, despite what Kylie claims, the brushes aren't good quality at all, according to people who have bought and tested them out. Popular makeup artists like Jeffree Star, Manny MUA and Laura Lee have all posted video reviews of the brush set and had nothing good to say about it. They commented on the cheapness of the brush bag, the shedding bristles of the brushes and their inability to properly blend makeup during application.
Others have called Kylie out for backpedaling on her initial claim that her company was animal-friendly. The fact that the brushes are real means that they are derived from animal hair, and people are not happy about it.
Here's what people on Twitter had to say about Kylie's new brush set:
Fellas, don’t let Kylie scam you into getting a Brush set for your gf. Everyone and their mother is saying it’s not worth it.— Randy (@xvi_m_xx) December 18, 2017
What else would we expect from Kylie, fake ass, fake lips, fake af in general and now this fake ass brush scam— gaibetch (@gvervetti) December 17, 2017
All my current relationships are like the Kylie Brush sets. Cheaply made, flaky, fake,a scam, and plastic to cover all the brushes but at the end are just over priced pieces of garbages.— Meghan McFallen (@OrangeMeghan) December 16, 2017
Kylie is a scam artist. Gurl you tried it, selling a brush set for 360$, where the bristles fall of, are scratchy and pokey, absorb all of the product, and takes too long to build up product..lmao girlll— MR MOSBY (@dammitMARIAM) December 12, 2017
Kylie's 4 brush set is $30, but I bought a set of 36 brushes from @bhcosmetics for $26. What a scam lmao...4 brushes for $30...bye 💀— ❄️ DECEMBRRR ❄️ (@BasedRosie) July 31, 2017
My car payment is $320 and Kylie Jenner’s makeup brushes are $360. You’re out of your damn mind.— 🌷Carley🌹 (@Carlleeyyyyy) December 14, 2017
The irony of Kylie Jenner using Vegan leather packaging for her animal hair makeup brushes is just too much for me— Rosie ☾ (@Rolosmelville) December 17, 2017
Y’all thought Keaton Jones Momma scammed the World.... Kylie Jenner out here wanting y’all to pay $360 for some Dollar Tree packaging/brushes ☕️😒— Dante D'Angelo (@itsdantedangelo) December 14, 2017
Not only are Kylie’s brushes expensive af but they’re also made out of REAL animal hair! Yikes sis— guppy (@jacqueokay) December 14, 2017
good morning to everyone except Kylie Jenner, who thinks it’s okay to sell 15 makeup brushes for $360 and not tell us if she’s pregnant or not.— s i e r r a 🌸 (@sierraa_321) December 10, 2017

Kylie’s brushes are a complete fail and I’m BEGGING none of you to buy them... almost $400 for brushes that shed and look like a wild dogs fur after the FIRST USE AND WASH. If your gonna waste that type of money then waste it on me and my textbooks for uni😭— aviana anti (@trblheaux) December 15, 2017
Kylie swears her makeup is high end trying to make these brushes $20 each, with her overpriced colourpop liquid lipsticks that make your lips look like they never touched a chapstick #bye. Kylie is cancelled.— lolaaa🦋 (@lehleeee) December 8, 2017
I just want everyone to know you can literally buy the new Apple Watch series 3 gps for less than what Kylie is selling her makeup brushes for— kali🕊 (@kaliistallman) December 8, 2017
goodnight to everyone except kylie jenner and anyone who bought her $360 brushes bc that's utter Nonsense— meg 💅🏻🐸🌟💖 (@garbage__queen) December 8, 2017
Hello world I would just like to say Kylie Jenner deleted everything on her twitter and her Instagram about her $360 brushes 😂😂😂😂— MERRY ASHLEY🎄❄️🎁 (@ashbalian) December 8, 2017
Kylie knows her fan base is fucking stupid lol her brushes could b made out of her ass hair and they’d still buy them— (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵) (@shakeyobootyyyy) December 8, 2017
Kylie Jenner smoking gorilla dick and gargling orangutan balls to think it’s ever okay to price some makeup brushes at $360. Is she tryna make her consumers poorer? Bitch you already got money. Your goal should be to make shit as affordable as possible.— text BATTLE to 384387 save the net. (@AsiaAtItAgain) December 8, 2017
im still trying to process the fact that kylie is really having you hoes buy 16 fucking brushes for $360 when those bristles look as rough as an angry 5 yr olds tooth brush— alexis (@alexisssal) December 8, 2017
Who approved Kylie’s brush set prices? Who looked at those dollar store private label scratchy as hell brushes and said, yes $360 makes sense. W H O.— Hailie🦄 (@hailiebarber) December 8, 2017
With Kylie’s history and extreme lack of experience in the makeup industry, odds are these are decent at best. She has priced them at Wayne Goss prices and she is no Wayne Goss. I’m sure they’re fine. But she is pricing her name, not her brushes.— Stephanie (@MediocreSteph) December 8, 2017
Yeah, no, Kylie.
