Kylie Jenner's Lip Kits Have Raised Nearly Half A Million Dollars For Charity

Kylie Jenner is putting her money where her mouth is.

The 19-year-old reality star has turned her luscious lips into a cosmetics empire with the wildly popular Kylie Lip Kits. Jenner recently released an exclusive lip kit called “Smile,” which has netted nearly half a million dollars for charity.

All of the proceeds from Jenner’s “Smile” lip kit go to Smile Train, a charity that treats children with cleft lips and palates in developing countries. Smile Train teaches local doctors how to perform cleft repair surgeries, and offers these surgeries for free in over 85 countries.

The “Smile” lip kit has had two limited releases. The first sale in October raised approximately $159,000, and this month’s second run upped the total earnings to nearly $500,000.

Proud mom Kris Jenner congratulated her daughter on her sizable charitable contribution.

People reports that Jenner’s donation will fund 1,800 cleft repair surgeries for children in need.

No word yet on whether Kylie Cosmetics plans to restock its sold-out “Smile” shade. In the meantime, you can donate to Smile Train directly.
