When Kylie Jenner teamed up with her style twin Kim Kardashian for a makeup collab, the beauty world was rightfully shook to the freaking core. The totally nude line debuted a new velvet lipstick formula that was so epic, Kylie added it permanently to the Kylie Cosmetics lineup.

Kim is the one who actually pointed the mishap out on the season thirteen finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

But since KK is calm, cool, and collected, she skipped this phase:

Let’s hope Kim’s own beauty brand has fewer mistakes.
