6 Crazy Things That Happened At Kylie Jenner's NYC Pop Up Launch
Check out everything you might have missed from Kylie Jenner's NYC pop up shop launch, at MTV.co.uk.
Forget the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Times Square - there’s only one place you need to head to in New York City right now and that’s Kylie Jenner’s latest pop up shop, which opened its doors for the very first time on Monday morning.
With the LA branch going down a treat with fans, and her online makeup and fashion lines STILL selling out in a matter of seconds, it only makes sense that the launch of her new IRL store would be kind of a big deal.
But with an appearance from Kylie herself, a surprise visit from big sis Kim Kardashian and LITERALLY SO MANY LIP KITS up for grabs, the Kylie NYC store launch reached all new levels of Kardashian khaos. Here’s 6 crazy things that happened at the opening.
1. People literally spent two days of their lives in the queue.
Keeping in mind that doors opened on Monday, people near the front of the line has started camping out in the queue on SATURDAY morning. The most dedicated fans came armed with blankets, sleeping bags and thermal gear to help handle the literally freezing cold, wet weather (it was about minus 6 over the weekend in New York, agh).
48 hours in freezing rain, show and winds, all in the name of Kylie J.
2. Only 20/30 people were let in the shop at once.
Although it had a capacity of around 150, Kylie was keen to make sure that fans could actually enjoy the experience of shopping at her pop up, meaning that numbers were kept to a minimum by security.
With over 2000 people turning up to check it out, an average wait in line of about seven hours, and no one inside being in a rush to leave, not everyone who joined the queue even made it inside. Oh gahd.
3. Kylie made an appearance, and rocked a peach wig.
Looking like an orange sherbert mermaid hair dream, Kylie raided her wig closet for the special occasion and pulled out a colour that we’ve never seen her wear before.
In true Kylizzle style, it was teamed with a serious fur coat, and a figure-hugging dress. You know you’ve reached peak glam levels when your hair matches your own neon sign.
4. And yep, she was pretty much mobbed.
Doors opened at 10am, but Kylie clearly fancied a lie in as she didn’t arrive at her pop up until midday.
Despite all of that, fans were clearly pretty pleased to see her when she did turn up, as full-on murderous screams erupted from the entire line as soon as she arrived with some help from NYPD.
Seriously, it’s actually quite painful to listen to on video, let alone IRL. Before eventually heading off to NYFW, she spent a while taking selfies and meeting people in the queue, so that’s nice.
5. Kim Kardashian saved the day (as always).
Like some kind of Valentine’s Day superhero, big sis Kimmy K turned up and documented her visit over on Snapchat.
"We're at the Kylie pop up. It's so cute," Kim said on camera. "Do you think Kylie would kill us if we told everyone they get free Lip Kits for Valentine's Day?”
Yep, she then headed back into the store’s warehouse, grabbed a load of Lip Kits from the stock shelves, and handed them out to fans. Kimmy K, you da real MVP.
6. Oh, and Kim wore a lip ring.
BOLD, and very Myspace 2009.

Now that we've finished that, how about watching guys and girls try to guess what weird sex toys are for. Oh go on.
