Hours after revealing what her new contour kits would include and look like - duel-ended contour and highlighter sticks with a sponge-brush hybrid blending tool - she released swatch images.
But less than one week after Kim Kardashian West caused controversy by teasing her new makeup line KKW Beauty with darkened images of herself, leading many to accuse her of using blackface, she spoke out about what really happened. The curvy entertainer has blessed her 101 million Instagram followers with shots of Yeezy with their two adorable mini-me's.
'She will always be my stepdad and be a person who raised me and stepped up to the plate and raised me after my father died, ' said Kim. "No one mentioned it".
"As for what we can expect from KKW, Kim said, "[Contouring] transformed my face when I saw my nose totally change into a smaller nose - and I was hooked from then". I remember right before you passed away I thanked you for everything u taught me & I told u I would raise my kids with everything I learned from you, whenever that time would come'.
Industry sources expect that KKW will blow through the reported 300,000 units that were produced of her $48 Creme Contour & Highlight Kit in less than five minutes, amassing $14.4 million in sales. Kylie Cosmetics has firmly marked its territory in the lip category with its popular Lip Kit (and Jenner's infamous plump pout).
"Of course, I have the utmost respect for why people might feel the way they did".
The complexion kerfuffle blew up after critics accused Kardashian of purposely darkening her skin - a form of either cultural appropriation or racism.
KKW Beauty officially launches on Wednesday, June 21, on kkwbeauty.com. We're really cautious of that.
