All Of Kylie Jenner’s Half-Million Dollar Lip Kit Profits Went To Charity
The Kylie Cosmetics "Smile" lip kit has raised half a million dollars to go toward funding cleft palate surgeries for children.
We already know that Kylie Jenner is in the business of making the world a better-looking place, but it turns out that she's all about doing good in regard to more than just beauty.
Kylie Cosmetics, the brand that has completely raised our standards for lip products, has also been oh-so-subtle in raising half a million dollars for charity. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from Jenner's special-edition "Smile," a pale pink matte lipstick, has gone to the Smile Train organization that provides cleft palate surgeries for children totally free of charge.
The kit was originally released in October (appropriately on World Smile Day) and sold out almost immediately, and after selling out again from a recent January relaunch (that has also sold out), Jenner's total donations will be able to fund a seriously impressive 1,800 surgeries.
"Kylie has a beautiful smile herself, yet we were most impressed with her selflessness, huge heart and extremely generous giving spirit," CEO of Smile Train Susannah Schaefer told PEOPLE. "Everyone here at Smile Train, and all of the cleft children around the world that she has helped, couldn't be more grateful."
We adore Kylie Jenner's game-changing products and this super selfless donation. With the ability to help others in addition to receiving a fab lipstick in the process, we're truly hoping she restocks the colors again soon!
