Kim Kardashian reveals blemishes & shares MAJOR update on new $675 line cost after backlash over ‘overpriced’ items | The Sun
21st June 2022

KIM Kardashian has made her final sales pitch before her new SKKN cosmetic line drops tomorrow, including revealing a major drop in its cost.

In another revealing preview video, the reality star tried to pump up excitement for the packaging her new makeup arrives in.


The 41-year-old shared her own version of an unboxing video, slicing open the "molded packaging" that houses her nine piece set.

Kim continued to show she was comfortable with the skin she's in, wearing a previously seen nude bra and leggings combo, and revealing her natural skin, blemishes and all.

"My @skkn products are housed inside sculptural bottles and jars that are designed to be kept and replenished for years to come," she explained in the caption. "All nine products have been on display in my bathroom for the last year and they add so much to the aesthetic.

"I can't wait to see how you guys style them on your vanities and countertops."

The designer then revealed a big price drop for the product line, which has been slammed since its announcement for its cost.

The "Complete Collection" of all nine products now sells for $575, down from the initial announced retail value of $673.

THE PRICE IS WRONG

That's still a pretty penny for many consumers, who let the star know it in the comments section.

"Just $600? LOL," one person declared, as another added: "that’s a tank of gas right now!"

KIM'S DEFENSE

Earlier this month, Kim clapped back at fans who say they "can't afford" the new skincare line.

In a decidedly candid interview with The New York Times ahead of the launch, she discussed the nine-step product line, calling the high price "a necessity."

Specifically, she told NYT the $95 face oil will give customers, "the glow of a lifetime."

The reality star bragged: "The products I was using that were comparable were way more expensive, not to compare anything.

"I tried to get the quality for the best price that we could, especially the vitamin C serum."

When asked how she will explain the high price to her 315 MILLION Instagram followers, when the majority of them "likely won't be able to afford it," she quipped the line is for the "prestigious."

The controversial star also said she would "try anything to look younger."

She said: "If you told me that I literally had to eat poop every single day and I would look younger, I might. I just might."

SKKN IT TO WIN IT

SKKN BY KIM was first revealed by The Sun last year.

On June 1, 2022, Kim confirmed The Sun's exclusive reporting in a post on Instagram, introducing the line officially.

She said: "You will experience refillable packaging, and clean, science-backed ingredients designed to nourish all skin types, tones, and textures at all stages of maturity."

She shared she's excited to share all that she's learned over the years from the world's leading dermatologists and estheticians.

The new brand will be available on June 21 at 12pm ET.
