Kylie Jenner’s makeup company has warned customers that their data — including parts of their credit card numbers — may have been exposed in a Shopify security breach.
Two “rogue” Shopify staff members stole order records and may have exposed customers’ names, email and postal addresses, and order details from less than 200 merchants, the Canadian e-commerce giant said on September 23. Kylie Cosmetics was among those affected, the beauty brand announced on its website.
The breach may have compromised the last four digits of some customers’ credit card numbers, Kylie Cosmetics said in an email first reported by TMZ on September 29 but confirmed that full payment details weren’t accessed.
The cosmetics company, which uses Shopify for its online transactions, said it was “deeply disappointed” to learn that the breach affected its customers.
Kylie Cosmetics launched an investigation into the incident, it said, and was working closely with Shopify to get additional information.
Kylie Cosmetics was working to identify which transactions may have been affected, the company added and said it would inform affected customers.
On September 23, Shopify said there was no evidence that the data had been used, but that it was still in the “early stages” of its investigation. The company was working with the FBI, other international crime agencies, and a digital forensics firm, it said.

Park Seo-Jun is now the face of BYS cosmetics
I have personally met Korean superstar Park Seo-Jun. It was for only 15 minutes, and it was an interview and not a social gathering, but it counts, right? Approximately around the same time last year, I was face to face with this man of many fans’ fantasies. He was in the country as the global endorser of Bench. I hope he didn’t get the impression that I was staring at him, but I marveled at his flawless skin with a little bit of envy. Coupled with his casual and easy demeanor, I thought that he was quite cool.
A year later, Park Seo-Jun and I meet again — though not personally. It is unfortunately not meant to be. He has been announced as the face of BYS Cosmetics Philippines, and rightfully so.
BYS was established in Melbourne, Australia, in 2004. The popular beauty brand has been in the country since 2012 and to celebrate its eighth anniversary, announced the endorsement of one of the most sought-after Korean celebrities.
“BYS has always prided itself on being a relevant brand,” says Angie Goyena of BYS Philippines. “Since the Hallyu wave is at its peak, we’ve chosen one of the biggest K-drama stars to be the cheerleader of the brand and encourage women to ‘Be the Extra in the Ordinary.’”
The company shares the same values as Park Seo-Jun, such as being professional, on-trend, accessible and customer-oriented (in Park Seo-Jun’s case, it’s fan-oriented).
“I believe the products of BYS Philippines can help you express and bring out your best selves, and allow you to move ahead and Be the Extra in the Ordinary,” says the handsome actor.
