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!
