Kim Kardashian’s New Makeup Line Sold Out in Under 3 Hours, Raked In Over $14 Million Dollars
Kim Kardashian West’s latest project brought in millions in just a few hours Wednesday when her new beauty line launched. Less than three hours after the kits went on sale, Kardashian announced that all 300,00 kits had sold out, bringing in an estimated $14.4 million.
The celebrity’s new make-up line includes $48 Crème Contour and Highlight Kits, which can be used to achieve the contour look the Kardashian clan frequently sports. The kits come in four different shades and include a contour pen, a highlight pen and a double-ended blending brush.
The speedy sellout of KKW Beauty echoes those of Kylie Jenner’s, whose cosmetics line Kylie Cosmetics regularly sells out of its new products in just minutes. Before Kardashian launched her own line, she and Jenner collaborated on KKW x Kylie Lip Kits, which retailed for $45. The 300,000 products were sold out in minutes, generating $13.5 million in sales, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
Kim, the richest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, has a number of successful products in her business empire. Kardashian’s mobile app, Kimoji, costs $1.99, and her subscription-based personal app costs $2.99. She is also an executive producer on her family’s long-running Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality show, and she and her husband, Kanye West, recently launched a children’s clothing line.
In the last year, Kardashian earned $45.5 million — ranking 47th on Forbes’s list of the 100 highest-earning celebrities.
