Amongst hundreds and thousands of others, I too attempted to get one of the coveted Kylie Lip Kits, only to wait in a virtual queue for not-so virtual hours and come out with nothing, but at least my bank account didn’t take a bashing.
So after trying and failing several times to get my hands on the illusive kit, I have diverted my time and attention to find and try out more readily available versions of the liquid lipstick, some of which are considerably cheaper, yay.

If you would like to attempt the impossible task of getting your hands on the real thing, I suggest signing up to Kylie Jenner’s app (bearing in mind you have to pay for it) but it is the only way you will be notified when the kits are back in stock.
