Don’t ask me why, but I thought it would be fun to investigate just how much it costs to be Kylie Jenner. Wardrobe, cars, and houses aside…(I have no clue how to quantify all of that), I wanted to know about the enhancements… the things that she’s done to improve her “look”.
Well, in case you care, here it is…
In a video with her make-up artist Hrush Achemyan, they together listed the following products used for Kylie’s 18th birthday party look…
Color Pop Game Face in “Super Shock” Eye Shadow $5
Anastasia Beverly Hills in “Cinnamon” Contour $14
Anastasia Beverly Hills in “Java” Contour $14
Anastasia Beverly Hills in “Noir” Eye Shadow $12
Laura Mercier Primer in “Buff” $27
Tarte Clay Pot Eyeliner $21
Too Faced “Better than Sex” Mascara $23
Anastasia Brown Wiz $21
Anastasia Contour L’Orange $14
Bobbi Brown Foundation “Chestnut” $44
Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel $48
Cover FX Custom Cover Drops $44
Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer “Sx02” $48
Koh Gen Goh Illuminator $39
Koh Gen Goh Foundation $62
Japonesque Blush $22
Mac Fix + Spray $22
Grand total: $480
In one of Kylie’s more recent app segments, she made reference to the following two products for a more natural, every-day look.
Vice3 Palette from Urban Decay $70
She’s also a big fan of getting her nails done… but who isn’t?
– That add’s at least $40 every two weeks ($960/year… plus decal extras)
…and don’t forget about Kylie’s new business endeavors.
#LipKitbyKyle is selling out like crazy
Under FAQ on the BELLAMI site, the company answered what everyone wants to know...
Q: How long do BELLAMI Hair extensions typically last?
A: “The lifespan of BELLAMIS is anywhere from 3 – 6 months, depending on their usage and how they are cared for and maintained”.
… So, if Kylie were to re-do her extensions every 3 months, that $280 quickly becomes $1,120 a year… not to mention Kylie has DOZENS of different wigs and colours that she rotates through (she has a wig closet).
Now, what about those lashes?
A full set of eyelash extensions can range from $75 for a full set, to over $200 (for a mink full set… yes, real mink fur). Fills then range from $30-$100, which you have to get done every 2 weeks. That adds up… (75 flat… plus, say, $40 every two weeks… that’s over a $1,000 in lashes a year)
Threading costs anywhere between $5-$40, and for someone constantly in the spotlight like Kylie, she likely get’s this done often.
Taking a more permanent and serious turn, Kylie has also admitted to using lip fillers. I did some research to find out just what it might be costing her…
It turns out that Dermal Fillers, to enhance your cheeks and lips, range from $275 – $1,000… a syringe.
“The treatment begins with the application of a topical anaesthetic and/or ice to numb the injection site. Your doctor or nurse will then use a fine needle to place the injectable gel directly under your skin. The treatment is quick and easy, lasting anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.”
And the thing is… it isn’t a one time thing…
Day One: Full treatment.
Week two: Follow up for any necessary touch-ups.
Month Six: Maintenance treatment.
Month Twelve: Maintenance treatment.
These treatments can therefore end up costing her thousands and thousands of dollars a year, (especially if she’s not only filling her lips).
So, in conclusion,… let’s just say… Kylie’s spending my University tuition on lips and hair.
