SinfulColors x Kylie Jenner Launch Limited Edition Anti-Bullying Lacquer Collection
At Mr. C Beverly Hills where the walls are paneled with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out into the sunny, mountainous vistas of Los Angeles and the ballroom tables are perfectly set with white linen napkins, stainless steel silverware and the obligatory champagne flute or two, it’s hard to imagine a world in which bullying–cyber or otherwise–exists. And yet, all we have to do is look not but one foot away to our phones to discover a world in which bullying is not only the norm, but the cause of teenage suicide, self-destructive behavior and depression. As a matter of fact, cyberbullying claims over 4,400 young adult lives a year, making it one of the leading causes of death for teenagers and young adults. But, as adults know, cyberbullying isn’t the only form of harassment children experience; we have yet to move past the age of face-to-face physical and emotional harassment.
While it’s easier to empathize with victims like Amanda Todd, the 15 year old who committed suicide after a topless photo of her was leaked to her classmates, Angel Green, the 14 year old who purposefully hung herself in front of her school bus stop so that her bullies could see, or Rebecca Sedwick, the 12 year old who jumped to her death from a concrete silo after being continuously harassed by her school’s group of “Mean Girls,” it can be harder for people to sympathize with celebrities, especially one like Kylie Jenner who has found herself under the media’s harsh spotlight since she was ten.
But the media starlet, who has built her empire on her family’s TV show and social media presence, has had more than her fair share of bullies, stating in an interview with INTERVIEW Magazine, that “since the show started, there’s been so much bullying towards me. Every single day I see something negative about me. And it’s just completely torn me apart.” Her collaboration with SinfulColors has shown how far Kylie has come, transforming herself from victim to advocate.
The limited-edition SinfulColors collection features three polish colors infused with sapphire flakes: Kompassionate (vibrant, shimmering blue), Kourageous (champagne shade with bold blue shimmer) and Konfident (deep gray with blue shimmer). After the launch, I swatched the polishes on my nails and found that the sapphire flakes were highly-pigmented and the formula fluid and buildable. I discovered that two coats is enough, but there’s no going wrong with a third.
For those interested in purchasing a set, please note that only 750 sets will be produced and each set retails for $75. To both get a set signed by Kylie Jenner herself and contribute to a great cause at the same time, SinfulColors is holding an auction at Charity Buzz until JULY 21st where the top ten bidders will receive a set autographed by Kylie Jenner with all proceeds being donated to STOMP Out Bullying and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
