Kylie Cosmetics recently sold out their newest birthday collection in a matter of minutes! These products have become so covetable that almost everyone is trying to purchase them. I have been pretty lucky and own nearly the entire collection. A few of my Instagram followers have been asking for Kylie Cosmetics tips on how I successfully scored these babies! These tips may also apply to other flash sales or limited release with other brands.
Kylie Cosmetics Tips: How get a Lip Kit
1. Be Prepared
Become familiar with the restock times and the time zone differences to prevent missing out. I follow @nadiaidder on Instagram who regularly posts updates on restocks and also includes time zone information. You could purchase the Kylie Jenner App, however there are many Instagram accounts that repost this same information. Set an alarm so you can be ready for the restock and make sure everything is ok, such as computers, internet connection etc.
2. Get your address information ready!
I definitely recommend heading to the Kylie Cosmetics website a day before to set up an account. This saves you so much time by having all your shipping information ready! There is no need to scramble over the keys to type in your address.
3. Have your billing information ready!
I have heard so many people say that they missed out because they had to go back and retype their credit card information because they incorrectly typed it the first time. My advice is to either use the copy and paste method or utilise an autofill method of payment.
Copy and Paste – In a separate document or even in the address bar of a browser window, type out the 16 digit credit card number and copy it. You will then be able to paste it directly into the billing section when checking out and only need to fill out expiry dates and the CVV code.
Autofill Method – I have already pre-saved my credit card information on my iMac. I have found this the easiest way and use this method. This can be done by launching Safari, going to preferences, then autofill and then credit cards. You can then add your credit card information.
4. Know what you want to buy
I would pick out what you want beforehand so that you are not still deciding and inevitably miss out. Have the product/s you want open in another tab. When the restock is live, if the homepage is lagging, you can just open this product tab and refresh it from there, adding it to your cart. Many successful lip kit owners use this method instead of going through the homepage. I have not tried it, but will be planning on using it at the next restock.
5. What to do when the site is live
Aim to be on the site at least 5 – 10 minutes beforehand. For me, all the restocks have been super early in the morning, and it helps tremendously with speed to be awake and ready.
One of my pet hates about their website and a lot of other companies that use Shopify as their e-commerce server, is that the products are not yours until your payment is processed. You need to be extremely fast and click like crazy! If what you want is a limited release or a new product, I would definitely recommend not trying to overload your cart with products. Aim for one or two products, as otherwise, they both will sell out by the time you get to checkout.
If you manage to get through the checkout and purchase your products you will come to page with all of your order details and confirmation number. I would take a quick screenshot of this page, as a confirmation email does not always send straight after. The products ship within a few days and depending on where you live can take 1 – 2 weeks. I live in Sydney Australia, and my orders have taken around 1 week after being shipped.
7. Have Patience!
If you are unsuccessful and the product sells out, don’t worry too much! Kylie Cosmetics restocks their product 1 – 2 times a week and I’m certain that if you are prepared you will be able to get the products you want at the next restock when the hype has died down a little.
Success with purchasing these products definitely rests on being fast. Saving time by pre-saving your address and billing information makes the process quicker and increases your chances of getting your Kylie Cosmetics!
