What the What? People Are Receiving Empty Kylighter Compacts

Fans went wild when Kylie Jenner announced she would be widening her makeup offerings to highlighter (or Kylighters, if you will) following the runaway success of her beloved lip kits. According to Allure, when the Kylighters were finally available to purchase, they sold out within three minutes.


The six shades include a rose-gold hue called Strawberry Shortcake, Salted Caramel (a warm beige), French Vanilla (a cool gold), Chocolate Cherry (a rich brown), Banana Split (a bright gold), and Jenner’s own favorite, Cotton Candy Cream (a pale beige).

But some of the lucky buyers waiting in eager anticipation for their new Kylighters weren’t too pleased when the compacts arrived empty. From the looks of it, the only highlighter shade that was affected by this mistake was Chocolate Cherry, and furious buyers took to Twitter to rant about it.

Whoops. We’re not sure how these got past quality control, but fortunately it seems the Kylie team is ON IT, rapidly sending out replacements to people who received empty Kylighters.

This isn’t the first time that there has been a scandal surrounding one of the Jenner sisters’ products — the stars have been accused of copying other artists in the past — but at least this time it was probably just an honest mistake.

What do you think of Kylie’s Kylighters and the empty compact fiasco? Tell us @BritandCo!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
