Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

For those Undercover Agents on the lookout for Kylie Jenner’s coveted cosmetics, the reality star-turned-cosmetics maven shared a sneak peek of her latest creation, Kylighters, on Wednesday.  Once an ardent believer in “no highlighter,” Jenner has had a change of heart.  “I changed this formula a million times, I worked really hard on them,” she revealed on Snapchat, adding, “They’re so silky, not flaky.

Brush outward in light strokes and you’re done! “
