Kim Kardashian sure has the Midas Touch when it comes to selling makeup. On Saturday the 37-year-old bombshell announced that her $160 Ultralight Beams collection has sold out already even though it just went on sale the day before. To share the news Mrs Kanye West shared yet another nude photo from her sexy promo photo session where she was wearing only glitter.
In the photo the star has on what appears to be gold glitter with a rose tint. She is sideways and looking at the camera with her hands on her knees.
Kim’s caption read: ‘So happy you guys are loving Ultralight Beams! The 10-piece set is sold out but the Duos are still available in 5 shades: Iridescent, Rose Gold, Yellow Gold, Bronze and Copper.’ The makeup is sold only through her website kkwbeauty.com. On Thursday she showed off even more as she shared behind-the-scenes images from the photo session on her Instagram stories.
The reality star was seen flashing her bottom as she leaned down on a silver floor during the session.
It appeared as if she had nothing on as she was covered in gold glitter, but it is likely she was wearing nude undies.
The TV darling also flashed her bare legs and flat tummy.
Included in the photos posted online was a behind-the-scenes selfie from the shoot that showed the star naked from the waist up.
In her captions the high school graduate did not address her copycat Bey move but rather noted that the entire collection could be bought for a whopping $160.
The siren wrote: ‘Ultralight Beams powders & gloss duo for $32 or the whole collection for $160 is launching at 12pm PST this Friday Dec 1st exclusively at kkwbeauty.com.’
Because Kim is selling the cosmetics direct and not through a distributor she will make even more money.
On Wednesday it emerged that Kim’s new photo shoot was almost a carbon copy of Beyonce’s shoot for Flaunt four years ago.
Kim was completely nude with gold glitter all over her body as she posed against a silver surface. The pinup’s face was fully made up and her hair was pulled back. In Beyonce’s image, she has gold glitter all over her naked body too as she poses with a silver surface behind her. And she also has a ton of makeup on with hair pulled back. It looks as if Kim was inspired by Beyonce’s shoot.
It’s interesting that Kim would copy Beyonce because the two don’t seem to be very good friends. When Kim first started dating Kanye West she mixed with Bey as Kanye and Jay Z used to be close pals. But at some point there must have been a falling out as Kanye and Jay don’t seem to spend much time together now. On Wednesday Jay Z addressed their problems with The New York Times, adding he will always love the rapper.
Still, the Wests and the Carters have been compared mercilessly. Some people have accused Kim of dressing like Beyonce, and vice versa. And even their daughters Blue Ivy and North have been contrasted. Even if Kim did copy Beyonce, it will most likely not hurt sales of her KKW products. The icon has been on a roll with her contour kits and fragrance, which has sold like hot cakes.
Kim revealed that her new shimmering highlighters and lip glosses – called the Ultralight Beams – are set to be released on KKW on December 1. Her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, shared a sneak peek of the upcoming Ultralight Beams collection. He revealed that it contains five lip glosses and five pigments in matching shades that can be used wet or dry.
Kim also posted a brief boomerang of the new collection. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s brand new perfume collection, KKW Fragrances, sold out in just six days; it has since been restocked. The initial launch brought in about $14 million for the savvy businesswoman; she sold the entire inventory of $300,000 perfumes, according to People. Kim’s first collection included three fragrances: Crystal Gardenia, Crystal Gardenia Citrus and Crystal Gardenia Oud. She sold $1 million worth of perfumes one hour after its launch on Wednesday morning, TMZ reported.
