Make-up mogul Kylie Jenner has taken to Snapchat to lift the lid on not one, but two striking new Lip Kit shades - but not all of her fans are feeling them!

Yesterday, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shared a series of selfies in which she rocked her two sparkling new hues - Freedom, a striking cobalt blue and Skylie, a bright sky blue - but followers and Lip Kit obsessives alike took to social media to admit that they aren't necessarily sold.

Since launching her Lip Kit collection in November last year, Kylie has served up a whole hoard of wearable nudes, reds and pinks that have flown off the shelves, but the beauty chameleon has recently extended the drop to include a handful of more unusual shades - and it seems some of her fans are drawing the line at blue smackers!

It wasn't long before Kylie's Snapchats - in which she models the new colours and tests them out on her arm - made it on to the Kylizzlesnapchats Instagram page and a lot of users didn't hold back.

One wrote, "Nope, this is another pass for me!" while another vented, "I don't like it. This is just a little too 'out there.' One user even said, "These are the ugliest! It reminds me of the 'lipstick for men' commercial that Joey did in Friends!"


That said, Kylie's beauty army also took to the comments section to stand up for her and the new in-your-face duo. "Sorry to say this but no one actually cares. Maybe other people would like to wear it? She can't like stop production or something just for you because you wouldn't wear it," while another fan said, "I'm kinda feeling the navy colour! Here's hoping I can pull it off."

This month alone, Kylie has unveiled Kymajesty - a shimmer-flecked navy and Dead of Knight - a gorgeous jet black and even though they divided opinion, too, most make-up lovers went absolutely crazy for them.

With celebs like Rihanna and Jodie Marsh having rocked blue lips lately, we've no doubt the swatches will do well but one person who won't be shelling out on the pretty pair is make-up artist Jeffree Star.

Earlier this year, Jeffree purchased Kylie's high-shine gloss collection, but his brush was splayed and broken, making application near impossible.

He took to Twitter to vent his frustration but it wasn't long before KJ defended her beauty empire! She mentioned that all of her Lip Kit brushes have been altered to make application much more comfortable and concluded, "Life is a learning experience, and we learn from our mistakes."
