Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits Received An “F” Rating From The Better Business Bureau

Screen Shot 2016-06-30 at 11.35.08 PM

Kylie Jenner, I know you were pretty much homeschooled but a “F” is no bueno.

The Better Business Bureau gave Kylie‘s makeup company an “F” rating (their lowest possible score) for its business practices and customer service, which is probably no surprise seeing as her lip kits are pretty much one big racket anyway. Kylie Cosmetics received the failing grade because of the 133 complaints about the company that have been filed to the BBB in the last year (five of which were never resolved) and the fact that the business has “failed to resolve underlying cause(s) of a pattern of complaints,” according to People.

More than half of the complaints cite delivery issues, while another 55 concern problems with the product itself. During a BBB investigation into complaints of customers’ receiving impartial or damaged deliveries from Kylie Cosmetics — or no delivery at all — the company replied that “because their product is shipped in highly recognizable packaging, they feel that packages are being vandalized or stolen.”

Although Kylie Cosmetics claimed to be “taking steps to change their packaging so that it is less recognizable,” the BBB notes that, as of June 23, 2016, “the pattern of complaint allegations continues.”

These complaints have plagued the youngest member of the KarJenner crew since she first launched her Kylie Lip Kits last year, yet her products continue to sell out in just a manner of minutes after each restock (except her latest, most massive refill). Somehow, we have a feeling this “F” rating and continuing reports of damaged and stolen Lip Kits won’t stop the droves of celebs, beauty aficionados, and Kylie fans alike from getting their fair share of glosses, metals and mattes.

Yeah, I mean, what do you expect? A 17 year old who has no makeup-making or business experience who peddles lip kits for 60 bucks a pop? It’s lip gloss, people, based on a business model started from a reality tv empire.

What do you think about Kylie’s FAILING GRADE? WEIGH IN BELOW!

Beauty Tips From “Becky With The Good Hair.”

'American Ultra' Los Angeles Premiere

Good hair tips from the controversial queen of good hair!

Okay, while Rachel Roy pretty much did a basic “what to do/what not to do” interview to In The Gloss, of course sites are picking it up because DUH, she’s “Becky with the good hair” and we’re all still ALL OVER Lemonade. Sure, Rachel has always denied that she’s Jay-Z’s Becky With the Good Hair, but remember when she booked it out of the CFDAs a couple weeks ago? YEAH. Here are some highlights from Becky/Rachel’s interview, which is actually kind of helpful:

What is glamour: “Glamour has always been something that’s instinctual to me. I was always attracted to it in some way. I started working pretty early—at 14, I got a job at Contempo Casuals, which was this store where I thought all the pretty girls worked. They sold really flashy clothes, and for someone like me that loved glamour but lived in an area that wasn’t so glamorous, it was a joy getting on the bus and going to work. By the time I was 16, I was the assistant manager.”

Makeup: “I have a face that can take a lot of makeup—I have so much fun with it. But if I’m not doing a photoshoot or if I’m not in front of someone, my makeup look will just be mascara. I love Estée Lauder Turbolash. There’s a little motor in it that makes it vibrate to make the lashes look quite long. And I fill in my eyebrows with a Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift. Super easy. She actually personally taught me how to brush them out so it kind of looks more natural. The goal is to have the Brooke Shields eyebrows, so that product is important to me. Charlotte also makes a good nude lipstick for me called Penelope Pink. For contour, I cut my face in half for sure. I use the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow Powder. It’s actually a pretty universal shade.

She used to sleep in her makeup: “For a long time, I was someone who would sleep with my makeup on. It’s what happens when you’re just exhausted, working so late. But I recently started cleansing at night with wipes—it feels really good and it’s easy. I just pick up a pack from the drugstore. And always something gentle… Ones that promise too much tend to sting and I don’t like any of that. My skin is really sensitive.

Becky with the good haircare: “I only colored my hair once, and I regretted it. You really have to make a commitment to maintain it. At that point, I just wanted to know what I would look like as a light brunette, but it wasn’t a good look for me. Now I go to Tracey Cunningham for a gloss, to brighten it, and then someone at her salon Mèche cuts it. On occasion, I do get oil treatments where they put oil on your scalp row by row and then massage you for 30 minutes. It’s amazing because my scalp gets dry. That’s why I only wash my hair about once a week. I’m a dry shampoo girl because of that. I can get a blowout to last me a whole week. If I get it styled, I like braids or a ponytail. I like it done really high and tight because it gives your face a little lift.

Rachel looks pretty amazing in every photo I’ve ever seen of her- and while I personally don’t have a “face that can take a lot of makeup” I dug all her product recs (brow brush? INTO IT).  She’s a controversial figure for sure- but Jay-Z does seem to have a type: intelligent women who know what they want and know themselves.

Bella Thorne Is Cool With Her Acne Scars, How EVOLVED Of Her!

Screen Shot 2016-06-16 at 9.16.52 AM

Being a celeb is TOUGH.

Disney alum Bella Thorne generally annoys me, mostly because she’s got an obnoxious instagram account and seems to be everywhere- even though I’ve never technically seen her ACT. As an example, girl even Snapchatted videos from her colonoscopy on Monday. Now the 18-year-old actress is talking about her skin problems, which were a curse for a while. But now, she’s HEROICALLY over them, and doesn’t care? Oh, the drama. Here are some of the highlights:

On the negative stereotypes about acne: “You go out and people think you’re dirty, that you’re, like, disgusting. That you must not take care of yourself because you’re uncleanly because you have acne. But really it’s something that everybody f*cking gets!”

On loving the skin she’s in: “Recently, my sister…we both struggle with trying to get acne taken care of. I was like, ‘Look at this pimple! I have a press day tomorrow, how did this just happen to me?’ and Dani was like, ‘That is a beautiful pimple, Bella. Your face is beautiful. You have beautiful skin. You love your face.’”

Haters gonna hate, and Bella doesn’t care: “In the past three to four months, I’ve really changed. I’ve really become a very different person. I’m really happy I’ve grown into who I’m becoming now and who I will become. And I kinda just changed my whole opinion, which was ‘I don’t give a f*ck.’ I don’t care. You wanna trash me? I don’t care!”

Bella did this as a part of her work for Burt’s Bees’ “Love Your Nature” campaign, and talked about her issues with dermatitis, which she developed during the filming of Amityville Horror. She blames the condition, which looks on the surface like acne, on makeup artists on set who used dirty makeup brushes on her face. GROSS. Check out the whole video below:

Kourtney Kardashian’s Weird Beauty Secret Is All About…Pillows?!

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 2.20.47 PM

Let’s be real: Kourtney Kardashian definitely looks the realest of the sisters, especially for her age. Girl’s got 3 kids but she looks like a teenager!

Naturally, I assume she does all the same botox/filler-y stuff as her sisters beauty secrets, but who knows? Every once in a while a Kardashian will come out with some cockamamie beauty thing and it doesn’t sound that hard. So here’s Kourt’s thing of the month, which is fairly odd  (and probably BS) but might be of interest to y’all. Apparently, she SWEARS by… satin pillowcases.

Yep, satin pillowcases.

Speaking with Cosmo UK, the eldest Kardashian admitted she swears by satin:

“I always sleep with a satin pillowcase and I have done for like 20 years. Khloe’s Godmother, who passed away a long time ago, used to tell us that we should always sleep with a satin pillowcase as it’s better for your skin and hair, so I have done ever since.”

Sounds scientific, Kourt.

As for her complete routine, it’s pretty simple and she doesn’t even use that many products:

“Well I always start by washing my face with Manuka Doctor‘s Hydrating Facial Cleanser, and then I’ll use a toner morning and night. During the day I usually wear EltaMD sunscreen, as my Dermatologist recommended it. Then I also really like to apply the Manuka Doctor Gold Dust Firming Serum, under my makeup.”

She also prefers oils to creams:

“I don’t moisturise my face very often, only about once a week at night. My skin isn’t that dry, so my Dermatologist told me just to use moisturiser when I feel like my skin needs it or feels dry. Instead of eye cream I like to use I use oils on my eyelids and under my eyes at nighttime. I just love the consistency of oil over eye cream. Also, I find eye cream can build up, the skin around your eyes is so thin, I find creams to be a bit much and prefer the feeling of oils instead.”

And know what? It also probably has a lot to do with good genes. Right? Not just serums and satin, so maybe take a breath before you start going satin cray on Amazon.
