Kylie Jenner is celebrating a very special anniversary. On Tuesday, November 30, the 24-year-old took to Instagram to share the milestone with her fans. She marked the occasion with a delicious-looking cake. Read on to see what the reality star is celebrating and what she had to say.
“It all started with a lip kit.”
The Kylie Cosmetics Instagram account posted a photo of a cake covered in sprinkles. It also featured the number six in gold. The cake sat among many Kylie Cosmetics lip kits. The Instagram post celebrated the sixth year anniversary of the popular lip kits that started it all.
“it all started with a lip kit 💄 today is the 6 year anniversary of #kyliecosmetics launching!” the Instagram post reads. “thank you all for the love and support. xo, KC team.🎂💕”
Kylie shared that post on her personal Instagram Story. It’s hard to believe but it was six years ago when Kylie launched the brand. She was inspired by all of the hoopla surrounding her lips.
Plastic surgeons and tabloids couldn’t help but wonder if she got her lips done. Meanwhile, fans wanted to know how they could look like Kylie herself. Some of them would go to extremes to get plump lips.
For instance, there was the #KylieJennerChallenge, in which teens used suction to make them swell. However, this dangerous idea caused bruising, discoloration, and nerve damage. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star then decided to enter the beauty space.
Why Kylie Jenner started her brand
Kylie was hounded by lip filler rumors. At the time, she denied them. In May 2015, she used the media attention on her lips to start her own brand. Six months later, Kylie Cosmetics was born. During the first launch, the $29 lip kits sold out in just under a minute.
She went on to grow her own makeup empire. The reality star was always obsessed with makeup and beauty. She felt insecure about her lips after a boy she liked kissed her and called them thin. As a result, she became obsessed with having bigger lips and couldn’t leave the house without makeup on.
Since she was doing makeup tutorials and playing with her look, she decided to launch Kylie Cosmetics. This led her to launch two other ventures, Kylie Skin and Kylie Swim. Years later, Kylie confirmed that lip fillers, not lip kits, were the secret to her plump pout. She still gets them done, just not as obsessively.
Travis Barker’s daughter enters her arena
There seem to be a lot more celebrity makeup brands these days. Both Savannah Chrisley and Lisa Rinna have their own lip kits. Now, Travis Barker’s 15-year-old daughter, Alabama Barker, could be next. She’s known to turn heads on Instagram, much like Kylie did when she was a teen. According to Life & Style, Alabama confirmed that she’s working on a beauty line.
She made the comment in a now-deleted TikTok video. One fan commented on the video, “If you made a makeup line I would literally buy every product x2 .” Alabama wrote, “I am babe .” Her announcement was enough to get “Kylie Jenner” trending on Twitter.
The Kardashians and the Barkers are close these days. Kourtney Kardashian is engaged to Travis Barker. No word on how Kylie feels about this.
