The 6 Emotional Stages Of Trying (And Failing) To Buy A Kylie Jenner Lip Kit
Why do bad things happen to good people?
While some people get vocally passionate about ball sports and others have such strong feelings about reality telly that they've been known to cry at the plight of a celeb being forced to eat kangaroo penis on live TV (ahem), nothing really gets the emotions raging like the trauma that is trying - and ultimately failing - to purchase a Kylie Jenner Lip Kit.
Each and every time those bad boys have gone on sale they've sold out within minutes, leaving most of us not only full of despair, regret and sizeable concern for our priorities in life, but with lips yet to be graced with the same brand of matte liquid lipstick that's touched the face of a real life Kardashian.
Here are the five emotional stages anyone facing such a disappointment might just be feeling, set out here to let you know that you're not alone and we're right there with you every step of the way.
Stage 1 - Denial
"Wait what. They are not already sold out. No, they can't already be gone. There must be some mistake. I was literally on the page at the exact moment that they went on sale, I cannot have NOT got one.
Stage 2 - Anger
"WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE?"
Stage 3 - Bargaining
"Maybe if I just keep refreshing every 10 seconds, the site might clear a bit and I might get one? That's like science and karma and the laws of mathematical probability rolled into one, right? RIGHT?"
Stage 4 - Rock Bottom
"This is genuinely the worst thing that's happened to me since Kim lost her $175,000 diamond earring in Bora Bora."
Stage 5 - Acceptance
"Wait a second. KYLIE JUST TWEETED - more will be on sale soon? Is that code for more this week? Let's just say that I'm going to be awake early enough to get one even if I have to staple my eyelids open.

"I will have one in my shopping basket if it's the last thing I do.
STAGE 6 - REDEMPTION
"Until next time, Kylie Jenner Lip Kit. UNTIL NEXT TIME."
