KKW: DEFENDING HER IMAGE

Monday, June 19th, 2017
     Promoting her solo cosmetics endeavor, KKW Beauty, Kim Kardashian West was immediately besieged with accusations of intentionally darkening her skin (aka wearing blackface) to promote the brand.  Speaking with the New York Times on Monday, the reality star defended her image.  “I would obviously never want to offend anyone,” she said.  “I used an amazing photographer and a team of people. I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off. But I showed the image to many people, to many in the business. No one brought that to our attention.”  Attention was exactly what the 36-year-old reality star received from the photo (left), so the KKW Beauty team quickly rectified the image.  “Definitely I have learned from it,” West added.   KKW Beauty launches Wednesday, June 21st with its $48 Crème Contour And Highlight Kit.

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017
Announcing her solo cosmetics endeavor, KKW Beauty, Kim Kardashian West teased fans on Instagram about her June 21st launch.  The first product will undoubtedly be a Crème Contour And Highlight Kit, pictured on social media.  However, little else has been revealed.  While accused of stealing some of younger sister’s, Kylie Jenner’s, thunder (after all, Kylie Cosmetics generates more than $100 million annually), this is not Kim’s first venture into world of beauty; she already collaborated with sisters Khloe, Kourtney, and Kylie.  Most recently, Kim partnered with Kylie on a KKW X KYLIE  Créme Liquid Lipstick collection in April.
