People can’t get over the price of Kylie’s new makeup brushes

by

So, while we're all about treating ourselves to some luxury products every now and again, there comes a point in every pay check when we need to stop and ask – 'Is this really worth the price tag?'

The answer of course is almost always no, but try telling us that when we're face to face to with the designer perfume we've been dreaming about for the last six months.

However, it looks Kylie Jenner's latest protect may have priced even the most reckless of spenders out of the market.

 

The Silver Series Brush Collection, all of Kylie’s favorite brushes, available individually and as a set on December 13!

The 20-year-old cosmetics mogul has been teasing fans with sneak peaks of her new Silver Series Brush Collection which is due to land on December 13.

The set features 13 of Kylie's favourite brushes – all of which can be yours for just $360 (€305).

Yep.

Why tax your car for a year when you could be the proud owner of a Kylie Jenner buffing brush?

Needless to say, fans are less than impressed with the extortionate price tag.

Kylie addressed the backlash in a tweet posted on Sunday, stating that the price was set so high because "real brushes don’t compare to synthetic brushes."

"I have developed for you guys the most amazing luxury brushes ever," she wrote.

"I am very excited! Real brushes don’t compare to synthetic brushes. Different performance/quality/everything. I am 100% down to do an entire synthetic line in the future which will ultimately be cheaper."

In an attempt to further justify the cost, the youngest member of the Kardashian clan posted a screen shot of other "real brush lines" with similar price tags. 

Either way, unlike Kylie's other products, we're no expecting these sets to sell out in a hurry
